Happiness is something everyone desires. Yet how to find happiness–or even if we deserve to–remains a mystery. Still more mysterious is the secret to a lasting happiness that cannot be taken away. In The Ultimate Happiness Prescription, bestselling author Deepak Chopra shows us seven keys to uncover the true secrets of joy in the most difficult times.

The goal of life is the expansion of happiness, he contends. But in today’s demanding world, that goal seems elusive, if not impossibly out of reach. Society reinforces the belief that fulfillment comes from achieving success, wealth, and good relationships. Yet Chopra tells us that the opposite is true: all success in life is the by-product of happiness, not the cause.

So what is the cause? The Ultimate Happiness Prescription shares spiritual principles for a life based on a sense of your “true self” lying beyond the ebb and flow of daily living. Simple daily exercises lead to eliminating the root causes of unhappiness and letting a deeper level of bliss unfold.

After all avenues to happiness have been explored and exhausted, only one path is left: the journey to enlightenment. In The Ultimate Happiness Prescription, the daunting and exotic challenge of finding enlightenment becomes accessible step by step. We are taken on an inspiring journey to the true self, the only place untouched by trouble and misfortune.

On the way we learn the secrets for living mindfully and with effortless spontaneity. Now happiness is no longer hostage to external events but an experience we carry with us always. As Chopra inspiringly concludes, “Everything we fear in the world and want to change can be transformed through happiness, the simplest desire we have, and also the most profound.”

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca Haslam | 2/3/2014

    " I was curious as to Deepak's writings since Ian Somerhalder began tweeting about him a couple of months back. I am also currently at a sort of crossroads in my life, with me desperately needing guidance as to solve a number of issues that are holding me back. There were chapters and key parts of this book that I couldnt help but identify with, especially those regarding to let go of all hatred and anger, as it truly does no one any good. I will keep this book for future reference, and who knows, maybe, with help, I can set myself on a better path. "

    " 1-1/2 stars. Reminds me of Buddist or Zen writings where I don't quite follow their line of thinking. To be fair, I did not spend much time with this - it may be the kind of thing where you could read a little bit and reflect on it and then get more out of it. "

    " If you have read one Deepak Chopra book, you will be familiar with the ideas in this book, a book about finding happiness. He knows that we want to be happier and he knows how we can be happier. It involves a lot of stress reduction and slowing down and being mindful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 5/16/2013

    " The Ultimate Happiness Prescription, considering its size, is huge. I borrowed the book from the library and will have to buy a copy of my own, there are some many points applicable to everyday living that one can't simply retain all at once. It is a book to read over and over. "

    " This was mostly great. A couple of the sections were a little too out there for me... But it's a process I suppose. I appreciated it's sinplicity and conciseness yet it was pretty thought provoking. Got the audiobook and will definitely revisit it often. (Is conciseness a word? Sounds dumb...) "

    " Ended up getting this in the mail and reading it all in one day. Short sweet and to the point, so much better than those 300pg tomes with mountains of research about people that are happier than you. Deepak has an interesting way of looking at the world. Good advice. "

    menarik, inspiratif namun sayang kurang detail.

    Untuk Deepak Chopra, lain kali cobalah lebih keras lagi. buku ini tidak buruk malah bagus tapi sayang bukan hasil terbaik anda.

    saya tunggu. :) "

    Not a bad book, just not an aha! book for me. "
