Ask Gotham Chopra the same questions he's asked every day--Considering Deepak is your father, have you mastered the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success? Do you lead the perfect spiritual life?--and he'll answer honestly: Not quite.
Growing up, Gotham and his sister were exposed to everything from the Bible to biology, from the Bhagavad Gita to Brave New World. They were also the ubiquitous and unwitting guinea pigs for their physician father's endless spiritual experiments. As a result Gotham's childhood was part spiritual, part scientific, and totally unique. He witnessed up close his father's transformation from hard-drinking, cigarette-smoking, angst-ridden doctor to bestselling angst-ridden guru to the stars. The result: somehow Gotham ended up (relatively) normal. Now as a newly minted father himself, he's contemplating the values and wisdom he wishes to impart to his own son. When reflecting back on the strongest influences in his life, the first was no surprise: his father. But the second was unexpected: his dogs.
Walking Wisdom is a poignant and powerful narrative and dialogue of and between fathers, sons, and dogs. Chronicling all of the love and licks that come with having a dog, along with the contradictions, complexities, and consequences of having children, Gotham and Deepak weave an entertaining and enlightening read. Together they guide readers through some of the most powerful spiritual qualities embedded not only in the planet's oldest wisdom traditions (including Joy and Playfulness, Innocence, Devotion and Trust, Unconditional Love, and more) but also in the souls of man's best friends, dogs. The final result is in essence amongst the most insightful and spiritual of Chopra books because of its honesty, elegance, and authenticity.
