Depression isn't just sadness. It is misery. It is both pain and nothingness. People don't 'have' depression, they suffer from it. Millions of people are diagnosed with depression; billions of dollars are spent on antidepressants and on depression-related research. Yet we are no closer to making a real difference to the quality of life of the patients.
Ayurvedic and yogic texts call depression `Vichada', a toxic state of mind. They consider it an illness, a disability - but one that is curable.
In a profoundly insightful work that draws from these texts, mystic and healer Om Swami categorizes depression into three types, each of which requires a different approach. Bringing yogic wisdom and ayurvedic knowledge to case studies from his own files, the author covers a range of options from medication to specialized meditation. When All Is Not Well will leave you with a new perspective on depression and sadness.
Om Swami is a mystic who lives in the HimaPyan foothills. Prior to renunciation, he founded and ran a multimillion-dollar software company with offices across the world. He is also the author of the best-selling If Truth be Told: A Monk’s Memoir and The Wellness Sense.
