Deepak Chopra is a medical doctor and writer with a strong interest in spirituality and mind-body medicine. Born in New Delhi, he was educated at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and emigrated to the U.S. in 1970 to take up a clinical internship at a New Jersey hospital. He later worked in hospitals in Massachusetts and Virginia, and established a large private practice.
His first book, Creating Health, published in 1987, discusses the healing power of the mind and the importance of establishing a mind-body connection. The book also introduces the basic premises of Ayurveda. Chopra has since written more than 40 books, ranging broadly across spiritual and health topics. Recently he has entered into the debate on intelligent design and evolution, stating in a series of articles on the Huffington Post that nature displays intelligence.
Chopra would spend it on transformation and healing.
