When Deepak Chopra writes a diet book, you might guess it's not just a list of what to eat and what to avoid. “What Are You Hungry For"” is indeed not a grocery list with recipes. “Your body will achieve its ideal weight on its own,” with the proper sleep, daily activity, healthy emotions and natural, mostly plant-based food, Chopra said in an interview before he signed copies of his book Monday night at the Lyfe Kitchen in Culver City. The alternative-medicine guru is among a number of people who are turning to a mind-and-body approach to weight loss.

Oprah Winfrey is awfully fond of giving things away -- cars, trips to Australia, cruises -- and in her first visit to “The Late Show” in eight years Thursday night , she shared something truly priceless with David Letterman: her mantra.   Winfrey, in town to promote “Lee Daniels' The Butler” -- the movie formerly known as “The Butler” -- spent much of the interview touting meditation.  As she explained, Winfrey brought meditation to her company in 2010 “because it makes for a better environment when everybody is focused and of one mind and doing well.”  That's why the former daytime queen was excited for a meditation challenge she and Deepak Chopra have organized.

A London constable and his partner come upon the body of an old man, his neck broken, in a roadside ditch. The old man's long, white beard reminds the constable, Arthur Callum, of wizards and warlocks--of Merlin the magician. As Arthur leans over "Merlin's" body, he hears the words, "Please--help. You are needed." And thus he is drawn into Deepak Chopra's updating of the Arthurian legend, a tale that casts Merlin as the voice of healing wisdom, and of the writer himself.

Deepak Chopra--New Age superstar, guru to the rich and famous and millions of others, praised and damned for his beliefs about the mind's dominion over the body--is about to settle into a couch in his intimate, soft-toned La Jolla office and explain his latest projects. His movie screenplays. (One is described as "Independence Day" meets Siddhartha.) His hip-hop CD from Time Warner's Tommy Boy Records division (and maybe a cameo in the video).

Filmmaker Gotham Chopra is the thirtysomething son of Deepak Chopra, which gives him a unique perspective on the icon of pop spirituality and celeb-friendly self-help guru. Yet there is precious little table-turning or real insight in "Decoding Deepak" - unless uncovering a passion for Starbucks and a preference for upscale hotels counts as takedown material. The film follows Gotham and Deepak as they embark on a year-long trip around the world, with the son intending to make a truly revealing portrait of his father.

Imagine for a moment what it must be like to be Deepak Chopra's son. You're lounging around with Dad, the two of you in modern white overstuffed chairs, dressed nearly identically in collarless black jackets, jeans and T-shirts. You're supposed to be having a conversation, some everyday give-and-take; you're supposed to be talking about dogs, as a matter of fact. But then somebody asks your father yet another Big Question ? so, Deepak, what, really, should we know about human consciousness?
