Book Description

A fifteen-year-old boy is walking through a swirling fog on his way to school when a voice calls out, "Come here. We need to talk." Out of the mist emerges an old man with a white beard. He is a fantastic figure, as wizardly as Merlin, as wise as Socrates, as peaceful as Buddha. Whoever he is, the old man has appeared on that very day to change the boy's life.

"You are old enough to learn about things," he says mysteriously. "And who is going to teach you but me?"

The old man gives the boy four days of "soul training," a time of riddles, tricks, parables, and incredible twists that brings out surprising answers to each of four burning questions about spirituality:

Do I have a soul?
How do wishes come true?
What is the supreme force in the universe?
How can I change the world?


"The old man with the white beard showed me the spiritual side of life," writes Deepak Chopra, "where real passion and excitement come from. So before you begin, take a deep breath. This story could turn out to be yours."

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction 13 Dec. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The basic spiritual journey is laid out in this book. It's a good introduction to inner wisdom and listening to 'the still small voice within'. There is a lot of value to a young person just starting out to discover their purpose in life. Well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Fire in the Heart 26 Nov. 2004
By Radha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is an amazing book, to be read by people of all age groups.

There are a very few books which give a spiritual insight in such simple terms.

This is definetely one among the best of such books. It is as interesting as

a good fiction, with a very simple and effective message in each chapter.

The author makes each of the message reach straight into the heart of the

reader by the style he has used for writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent & Inspiring Stories 19 Jan. 2008
By BeatleBangs1964 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent book replete with spiritually uplifting stories. Dr. Chopra is one of the leading experts on Eastern-Western medical treatments and is a gifted philosopher and writer as well.

With regard to the references to autism in this book, Portia Iversen's son Dov, the boy featured in "Strange Son" and Tito Mukhopadhyay are included in this book. Dov was the young man who was actively listening although he was nonverbal during his early years and Tito Mukhopadhyay was the gifted poet/author who has severe autism.

I want to add that the claim made in this book that people with autism "go inside of themselves" and "don't respond to the outside world" simply isn't true. Dov himself said he was listening at all times and Tito Mukhopadhyay was acutely aware of his environment.

Autism is a sensori-neurobiological condition that affects sensory processing and communication. For individuals with severe autism as these two young men have, communication is severely impacted. People with autism are generally acutely aware of their environments; however, the sensory processing issues can create false impressions. For people on the autism spectrum (and it IS a continuum), sensory input can be confusing and hard to separate into discrete units. When a person is on overload, it is not uncommon for them to appear non/unresponsive. That is when the person is "coming even," trying to tone out the overload and the feeling of being overwhelmed.

Communication is an inherent part of all individuals; it is listening to people on the spectrum that hopefully will create a more tolerant world and put false claims about autism permanently to rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect For a Teen 19 Aug. 2011
By Slamb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My mother gave me this book to read when I was 13 and going into 8th grade. The author really makes this book an enjoyable read. I loved it. In this book, Chopra explains in chapters about how everyone has a soul and how to relate to your own. Reading this was very calming and interesting. It was very easy to understand and to relate to. I would recommend it to any teen whos spiritual or looking for something meaningful to read.
