Understanding Depression through Yoga



As per the English dictionary the word depression also has a second meaning other than the one with psychological implications: A feeling of low relative to the surrounding high, or a part of the high that has sunk low.  In any living being the force of the prana circulating within should be strong enough (optimal) to be able to hold all the vital biological functions as a unit, or sustain its existence.  


The intensity of the mood, enthusiasm in the mind of the being is the indicator of the quality, force, or health of the prana flowing within it. The mind is nothing but a collection of individual units of energy, prana, commonly known as thoughts.  Depression is a term given to the state where due to some reasons the enthusiasm or the mood of the mind falls short of energy needed to keep it at the optimal level dunking it lower than its normal mark.


It is still unknown whether the depressing of the state of mind causes the drop in the levels of the associated prana or vice versa.  Whatever triggers it the symptoms of depression are mostly common across individuals. There is a high chance that someone is inflicted with depression – in the psychological sense- if he/she stays persistently sad, awake at night, restless, tired over a period of a few months.  


Tendency to inflict self-harm, inability to stay focused on anything, feeling of low self-worth, weight loss without a clear reason, and loss of interest in sexual pleasures are other indicators of the person being clinically depressed.


What can possibly make one depressed?


There is never just one cause which can push the mind in low gear in general. Normally it’s the combination of a number of factors present within an individual. The intensity of depression which dawns upon a certain individual is directly proportional to the combination of some of these factors present at the same time: a certain combination can lead to more intense feelings of depression, and other combinations can be considered as mild.


Genetics, social, mental strength, and any reason that causes the change in the levels of the transmission of signals across the relay of nerves, and other biological considerations have been found to be responsible for triggering depressive symptoms in an individual in general.  There is a separate list of factors which if present in toto or in various degrees increases the propensity of the individual towards falling down the dark hole of depression.


Mind would be more inclined towards depressed thoughts if one has experienced separation, death of a loved one, stress at work or in personal life, financial difficulties, and prolonged health concerns ( diabetes, Cardiac issues).  


People with any past head injuries, people who were incapable of successfully handling any trauma in the life before, individuals who indulge in excessive abuse of drugs like alcohol and amphetamines are perfect cases for slipping into depression at the fall of a hat.
