    One thought on “When All Is Not Well: Depression and Sadness -- A Yogic Perspective

    1. Faizan on said:

      Depression is not absence of happiness. It is absence of life and of will. This book has depression in its original form. No idiotic stories, no climax or drama or fiction. Words full of sadness and miseries start from the first page. No control over the demon, unleashing it and exploring its all dark sides is what this book is about. For years I thought, real life was about to begin. For years I thought something big, something grand was going to happen in my life and I would suddenly start fee [...]

      I began reading the book at a very difficult phase in my life. Om Swami's words proved to be a soothing balm, thankfully. It is often said that one must not hesitate to reach out to their friends and seek help when depressed. However, being a fairly private person by nature, I decided to invest more time in reading up as much as possible. This book isn't one I'd otherwise pick up -- self-help is not a genre I read a lot and I had to remind myself that I AM NOT DEPRESSED, IT'S JUST A PHASE WHICH [...]

      Buy a copy. Read it. Buy one more. Gift it to someone who has had an encounter or suffers from depression or someone who lives with someone like that. This is the most concise and compassionate book I have read on the topic. I very highly recommend it. Also, don't be a dick and point out flaws. That's missing the point completely.

    4. Ashish Gourav on said:

      It is an amazing insight into the dynamics of the most talked about mental ailment, "Depression". This offers more solace to a sad/morose person or if I may say depressed person than any other piece I have ever read. The only reason being it is non-judgemental and offers solutions than just useless mumbo-jumbo.

      Depression. Yes! This is the most common mental-diarrhea (pun intended :-D) each human being go through in his/her life at one point of time in their life. Trust me, we will get much better than before who we were if we go through depression in one or the other way for one or the other reasons. That doesn't mean that we should expect it to happen to us :D The book illustrates a few real-time examples on Depression and how to overcome it. The core essence of the book explains us on "How to love o [...]

    7. SUBRATA DUTTA on said:

      “If depression is comparable to a physical disease, it’s certainly not just a common cold – it’s more like a tumour. It could be benign in some or downright cancerous in others. Either way, it needs attention, because it is debilitating. Unlike many physical afflictions, though, it is curable; we can emerge from depression and lead happy, healthy lives.”Om Swami, who renounced his successful professional career in search of spiritual enlightenment, has given us handbook, so to speak, o [...]

    8. Mehul on said:

      This is the best book on Depression so far. A very small and to the point description. I've read all books of Om Swami and I must say that his work is out of the world. He doesn't write books, he write material on which a whole research can be done. This book is a must read for the depressed person sad person and even happily living person bcz depression is now a days very common in our society and more dangerous then cancer some times. It is amazing to watch that how changing ones diet and exer [...]

    9. Ananya Ghosh on said:

      While I love reading and listening to Om Swami but this book did not resonate with me. All the case studies mentioned in the book imply that depression can be overcome when someone loves you or when your loved ones support you. What if you have nobody to love you or support you? I am not comfortable with the idea of one's own happiness being dependent on somebody else. Yet, I would recommend others to read it because there are ayurvedic concepts mentioned in the book which might be useful to som [...]

      Going into this one, I wasn't 100% sure this novel was going to apply to me in its entirety. While that was the case, there was definitely plenty I fell like I got from reading this novel.I could still appreciate Om Swami's authority and knowledge of the subject. It was very interesting to read about and I think things from this novel could help people dealing with certain struggles in their life.

    11. C. Gonzales on said:

      I loved how this novel was full of great advice and solid examples. I didn't feel like I was being told how to do something by someone who didn't have legitimate facts backing them up. The way it is written is extremely easy to follow and gives you a step by step process.The flow was a bit convoluted at times due to the fact that some ideas are repeated because they do come into play at different times in the process, but other than that it is a solid read.

    12. Gina Stamper on said:

      Open your mind and open your heart. This is a very spiritually awakening novel. There are a lot of different aspects of this novel in which I related to and felt a sense of relief after reading. It’s kind of hard to explain as I feel that everyone will take different things from reading, its a subjective novel. If you are open and willing to let in new perspectives, I think you will take away a lot from this.

    13. Rahul Kumar on said:

      Well written bookPractically useful for a disease considered non tangible. As always good insight from Swamiji. Thank youn Swami Ji for this book. You contribution to humanity is great.

    14. Aaditya Khandelwal on said:

      Every page I completed helped to get better insight of our thoughts. It felt peace to understand and read how thoughts can be healed. I wonder once I start practicing the techniques mentioned in the book, it would be wonderful.

    15. Gaurav Prabhu on said:

      Simple and clear. Actually to be read by everyone, not just from those suffering from depression.

    16. Reads_21 on said:

      PLEASE PICK THIS BOOK and give it a read, Why? You would not just be doing good for yourself but to this world.This book of just over a hundred pages, has a lot of insight and food for thought, or facts for thought, if I must say. Before, I read this book, my understanding of Depression was someone who has locked them in a room and behaves insanely. Little had I known that I myself was suffering from it not for a short while but for year’s . It was an eye- opener for me and gave an understandi [...]

    17. Girish Pednekar on said:

      A must read for everyone!It's not just for depressed people. Everyone must read it. Sometime or other we all go through sad phase and this book gives completely new perspective on the subject. Swamiji's language is as usual enchanting!
