Questions for Deepak Chopra

Regardless of whether or not the NY Times Magazine is any good, Hannah and I read Deborah Solomon's Q&A every week. I find them quite entertaining, if not insightful. I particularly liked the Q&A with Deepak Chopra a couple months back. Here's a small excerpt...

Deborah Solomon - Do you think God exists?
Deepak Chopra - Yes, but not as a dead white male.

DS - How would you define spirituality as opposed to religion?
DP - Self-awareness and awareness of other people’s needs.

DS - If someone asks what religion you are, what do you say?
DP - I say God gave humans the truth, and the Devil came and said, “Let’s organize it, we’ll call it religion.”
