Magazine named Deepak Chopra one of the top 100 heroes and icons
of the century and called him "the poet-prophet of alternative
medicine." With more than 70 books, this world-renown alternative
medicine physician has inspired millions interested in holistic
health, spirituality, conscious evolution, peace and creating
a more compassionate, peaceful, just and sustainable world. Dr.

Ayurveda, an ancient Hindu tradition of alternative medicine.
He became the medical director of the Maharishi Ayurveda Health
Center and in 1996 co-founded the Chopra Center for Wellbeing,
which incorporates this ancient alternative medical practice.
Deepak Chopra has also been involved with many organizations working

that honors life and builds an awareness of humanity's interconnectedness"
and the Evolutionary Leaders Group, which inspires, supports and
serves leaders working to build a global movement for the conscious
evolution of humanity.
