Childhood And Early Life

It was on October 22, 1946, that Deepak Chopra was born in New Delhi, India. He was born to Pushpa Chopra and Krishan Lal Chopra. His father worked as a cardiologist as well as Lord Mountbatten medical aide. His younger brother, Sanjiv Chopra serves as a physician.

Deepak first joined New Delhi St. Columbus School and later graduated at All India Institute of Medical Sciences. Throughout his teen life, Deepak wanted to know more about human being thoughts and emotions. It wasn’t long that he went to the US to study endocrinology coupled with internal medicine.

After a successful course, he took up an internship at Muhlenberg Hospital in New Jersey. For seven years Chopra worked on different residential posts including at VA Medical Centre which was a profound success.



Over four decades ago, Deepak obtained a certified license from Massachusetts. It wasn’t that long that he opted to major in the branch of physiology (endocrinology). He first showcased his medical skills at Tuffs University, the Harvard and later at Boston University.

In 1980 Chopra worked behind the scene as chief of staff at New England Memorial Hospital. In 1981 with the help and advice from great physician Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Deepak was asked to major in Ayurvedic practice and meditation.

Deepak resigned from his previous position claiming that doctors prescribe loads of drugs to ill patients. In other words, he considered himself a “drug pusher.” 

It first started as a joke when he earned Maharishi Ayur-Veda Products International co-founding name. At some point, he became the director of the Maharishi center located in Massachusetts. He then formulated the slogan “quantum healing” meaning an ill person can be cured by correcting imbalanced hormones. That’s how “quantum mechanism” was born.

Chopra’s contribution to well-being proved that people could ultimately heal when using alternative medicine. Even then, there are still some critical reactions from doctors; which appear to be an unwritten narrative for another day. For now, understand that this household name isn’t slowing his pace.
