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."

"A Must Listen"
Well worth the credit and then some. Excellent, very well read in everyday words. Straight to the point with simple philosophy based explanations. Every word is usable valuable information with no extra fluff. I was a happier person half way through and more so every time I listen there after. I highly recommend this audio.
The wisdom of Deepak Chopra comes through clearly in this audiobook. Provides practical approaches for anyone to apply. Its the kind of audiobook you can listen to over and over and get something new out of it each time.
"This is a great listen"
I really enjoyed the book and the suggestions in this book. The only issue was that Dr Chopra is a little monitone so You can tune it out if you are doing something else while listening
Deepak Chopra simplifying how to get the most out of life.. Straightforward, no nonsense ,equation to happiness.. I should have downloaded this years ago.
I listened to this book several times and every time I discover another treasure.
Ego, stop seeking approval, release fear etc... are among topics that Deepack touched upon.
Concepts are clear and 1,2,3 steps at the end of every chapter which will leave you with clear instructions about what to do next.
"life changing "
I started practising the teaching everyday. At first it was terrible to look inside at the mess. As time goes on, I am starting to realize that this is an important part of becoming content and fulfilling my life's purpose and finding joy. thank you Mr. chopra
"very Informative to sat the least."
Very informative to say the least!! I would listen to this book again and I would recommend this title. 100% satisfaction, obviously. 😀
"had to listen a couple of time to fully understand"
how to achieve happiness.
all of Deepak Chopra's books are all very educating.
a lot of things that i wasn't aware of about myself and my body.
as much a i possibly can.
thanks for having this web site. it's incredible.
Deepak presents a prescription that makes sense, in fact seems like it should be common sense (sadly, it's not). My only criticism is his admonition not to label experiences as betrayals. But some experiences can only be described that way. I think his point is not to get STUCK in victim consciousness. Otherwise, it's good advice from a good doctor.
A lot to take in. But has some gems for everyday living as well. I enjoyed his narration.
