We get a lot of requests for information about meditation techniques from Deepak Chopra.
In my opinion, that is really good.
It is not well known, but Deepak Chopra was for many years deeply involved with the Transcendental Meditation (TM) movement. He rose to second in command there, and expected to be the leader after Maharishi Mahesh Yogi passed away. But Chopra and the guru had a falling out, and Deepak went out on his own.
I don’t mention this to bring up the conflict, but rather to let you know that Deepak is famous for many writing and teachings now… but his start, and base, and deepest knowledge all are rooted in meditation.
He still teaches TM, but calls it Transcendence instead of Transcendental. You will see this as the first technique in the four minute video below
