Ways to escape from depression – Swami Sivananda

Develop forgiveness.
Give up idle talk.
Study the sacred books.
Observe straight-forwardness.
Do no harm to any being.
Have patience, adamantine will and untiring persistence.
Drive the feeling of depression and gloom at once by enquiry, singing divine songs, prayers, chanting of OM, a brisk walk in the open air…
Try to be happy in all states and radiate only joy towards all around you.

Feel that all is light and bliss only.
Swami Sivananda
