Like his previous best-selling books, this latest work from world-renowned author Deepak Chopra draws on the ancient Indian spiritual tradition of Vedanta to explore the path to true and lasting happiness. Everyone has material, financial, spiritual, and relationship goals, but the goal of all of these goals is the same thing: happiness. People believe that if only they could achieve these things - that new car, raise, or partner - happiness will come.
But, as Chopra explains, as long as the happiness comes from outside one's self, it is always at the mercy of the inevitable ups and downs of life. The key to long-lasting happiness is in the realization that the very nature of the self is a joy that comes from within and can not be affected by external circumstances.
