    .New hope for an enigmatic condition.

    This is the first book I've read (and I have read quite a few) that describes exactly what is going on in my mind, body and spirit when I am in the midst of my depression. The section on TM details exactly what I believe needs to happen inside of me to be freed from this terrible disease. I am excited because this book has given me new hope. What is truly amazing is how the author shows the correlation of modern science and ancient Vedic principles. Truly a gift.
