Deepak Chopra is best known for his spiritual how-to books. Here, he turns to fiction (though he adds a how-to epilogue), writing about the life of Prince Siddhartha, who became the Buddha. The book is divided into three parts.
  • The first chronicles the youth of a motherless boy who has a destiny: to be a spiritual leader as foretold by astronomers at his birth. But his powerful father refuses to bow to fate and keeps his son isolated from the world.
  • In the second part, Siddhartha, now a husband and father, sees suffering and decides to leave his life of leisure and become a monk. Despite extreme asceticism and a duel with a demon, enlightenment eludes him.
  • In the final section, Siddhartha sees the error of trying to defeat his body and, in one night, achieves enlightenment and becomes the Buddha.

The traditional story of Buddha is already compelling, yet Deepak truly captures the essence of this renowned spiritual seeker.  When the novel ends, the explanations begins, with Chopra providing a Q and A about the tenets of Buddhism. Many will find his "answers" as enigmatic as they are enlightening.


Praise for Deepak Chopra's new book, Buddha - A Story of Enlightenment

"BUDDHA is unlike anything Deepak has ever written before. A timeless story retold by one of the most inspiring spiritual guides of our era, it is essential reading for anyone curious about the foundations of Buddhism."
Brian Grazer, Oscar Award Winning Producer of "A Beautiful Mind," Emmy Winning Producer, "24"

"Deepak Chopra crafts his "BUDDHA" in an astonishing narrative, a veritable literary feast engaging every color of the bouquet of human experience. With dramatic precision and inspired literary artistry he transports us on an adventure in enlightenment with all the twists and turns of a great movie."
Peter Guber, Chairman of Mandalay Entertainment, Producer of Batman, Rainman and Color Purple, and host of AMC's Sunday Morning Shootout

"From prince to fully awakened being we enter the mythic life of the Great Lord Buddha painted in primary colors on a canvas so fresh and unpretentious that we can sit and contemplate the essence of this ultimate spiritual adventure. Bravo Deepak!"
James O'Dea, President, Institute of Noetic Sciences


"Outstanding! Deepak's creative and dramatic retelling of Buddha's life is proof, that, when it comes to conveying spiritual verities, fiction can be more true than fact."
Arvind Sharma, Birks Professor of Comparative Religion, McGill University


"A page turning masterpiece. To me, this is Deepak’s story telling at its best. The telling of one of the greatest stories ever lived, in a fashion that will make the Buddha come alive for the reader. I couldn't’t put it down. I now feel as if I have met the Buddha and he is in all of us who search for our own greatest. This book is destined to become a classic, I guarantee it."
Wayne Dyer, Author, The Power of Intention
 
"BUDDHA offers us a most extraordinary opportunity to look at the road to enlightenment taken by one man. Deepak’s insightful re-imagining of the life journey of one of the world’s greatest spiritual leaders is a captivating read and a road map to personal spiritual growth from one of the most respected and inspiring leaders of our time."
Terry Semel, Chairman and CEO, Yahoo!
