Deepak Chopra: Inspirational Children’s Books
As a believer in the strong mind-body link, Deepak Chopra, M.D. has committed his life to merging the advantages of conventional medicine with the philosophies and teachings of holistic and alternative medicine.
Chopra has reached millions of people worldwide with his inspirational writings that encourage spirituality, wellness, and peace.
Chopra has also extended his philosophies to children’s writing by penning two books designed to influence and inspire children as they learn the ways of the world.
Mind-Body Wellness Practitioner
Deepak Chopra, M.D. is an internationally acclaimed motivational speaker, philosopher, and award-winning author. Chopra has written over fifty titles and has developed several videos and audios based on the philosophies of wellness.
Chopra is an esteemed physician—a member of both the American College of Physicians and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists—and alternative medicine practitioner, particularly Ayurveda. Opening The Chopra Center for Well Being has allowed for Chopra to expand on his interests in fusing western science-based medicines with ancient holistic approaches.
Chopra firmly believes in the mind-body wellness link. He has expanded his whole wellness approach to life to teaching and writing for children the philosophies and ancient wisdoms that nurture children’s spiritual needs.
Children’s Story Reveals Meaning of True Love
Chopra’s first children’s book, You With the Stars in Your Eyes (Hay House), was released in December 2009.
This is a beautiful story of a little girl discovering the cosmic consciousness. Out on a walk with her grandfather, she asks about the meaning of true love.
Her grandfather is helped in explaining about love and life and connectedness by the moon.
The inspiration behind this story came from Chopra’s belief that children are able to see the cosmic consciousness understand how everything and everyone comes from the same energy.
You With the Stars in Your Eyes is illustrated by former Disney animator, Dave Zaboski, and is suitable for children ages4 to 8.

Spiritual Laws of Success for Children
In October 2010, Chopra released his second children’s book with co-author Kristina Tracy.
On My Way to a Happy Life (Hay House) is an illustrated children’s version of the bestselling book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, and was written to show kids how the world works from a spiritual perspective.
On My Way to a Happy Life is a guidebook based in ancient Indian teachings for children ages 4 to 8. The book is designed to help them learn the seven keys to living a happy life full of meaning. Each of the keys are discussed and illustrated with an example of real life moments. For example, Chopra and Tracy discuss the benefits of giving and receiving, noting how everything we put out to the world comes back to us. The book also discusses the power of dreaming and reaching those dreams.
Chopra’s inspiration for this book was his belief in teaching children the important traits of having compassion for others and in spreading love to people in our lives.
