Depression to Drop out! – SDA

Today’s Thought: From Depression to Unlimited Bliss
uploaded en route to London, England

——————————————————————————–

One of our readers was so disturbed when we presented Krishna consciousness as the cure for depression that she dropped out from our course. This reader felt that we were being irresponsible and that our advice would hurt our readers. She feared that our advice would make those who are already depressed even more depressed.

One argument that supports this school of thought is that it is much more comfortable for a depressed person to think that his depression is due to a chemical imbalance in his brain rather than his having a wrong outlook on life. He may become more depressed if he thinks that his depression is his fault. And with increased depression he could even come to point of suicide.

Of course, in one sense we are all victims of the materialistic society which has so much misguided us. Due to our ignorance of the actual all-blissful, eternal nature of the self we have can easily become confused, frustrated, and depressed. So instead of blaming the individual for his depression we can guide how to him to see the blissful, harmonious existence of which he is an integral part.

But if we don’t make the truth available of how to completely conquer over depression by reharmonizing one’s self with the Supreme Person, we will cheating the suffering humanity out of the supreme benediction of Krishna consciousness. So we must dutifully carry on with our work even though we are sometimes misunderstood.
