Deepak Chopra, the doctor and self-help guru, who turns seventy-three next week, has written more than one book for every year he has been alive. Chopra was born in New Delhi and studied medicine in India before moving to the United States, in After practicing as an endocrinologist in Massachusetts, he became involved in the Transcendental Meditation movement. He eventually relocated to the West Coast, left T. A quarter century later, his books have sold millions of copies, and his television appearances—especially alongside Oprah Winfrey—have made him perhaps the most prominent advocate for alternative medicine recognizable around the world. During our conversation, which has been edited for length and clarity, we discussed controversial remarks he has made about cancer and AIDS , his claim to have never been even a tiny bit sick, and whether there is a reality that exists independently of our own minds.

The guru presents an exciting vision of our ability to control our wellbeing but leaves little else to blame than ourselves if we are stricken with disease. The crowd at the Melbourne convention centre is in the hundreds, not the thousands, and they are subdued, not elated: focused like students cramming lectures in before the exams. Chopra — a veteran of public appearances, and the author of 80 books — is not a pulse raiser. In the two-day conference — the Deepak Chopra weekend — it is just him and a screen on the bare stage, talking in an even monotone about how to slow the ageing process, how to think yourself healthy, how to have more interesting dreams. This is a suburban spirituality.
