Chopra’s discussion suffers from the misplaced referent of Vedism:

we have long suggested here that the original tradition of Indian spirituality got repackaged, misleadingly, as an outgrowth of the Vedic tradition. That is misleading, and if we examine the Buddhist tradition coming later, there is no such association.
In any case Chopra makes the useful point that the atman/brahman legacy which predates the buddhist focus on ‘no self’ is the original foundation for a psychology of enlightenment.
