How spiritual advancement can prevent and resolve Mentalhealth disorders

If someone is bullied to the state that they are suicidal then this is very serious. The victim should be compensated about 10 million dollars and the injurer should be jailed for about 40 years. Essentially workplace bullying could be considered equivalent to murder. The author has experienced psychosis, panic attacks, generalized anxiety disorder, depression as well as being suicidal in the years 2010-2019 as a result of workplace bullying.

 

The first real sign of the author’s improvement in health occurred on the 11th Feb 2013, which was the day before enrolment for a course in a Bachelor of Social Science degree at Macquarie University. At this point in time the author was also undertaking regular Hatha yoga sessions at Macquarie Gym. The author’s health continued to improve throughout 2013. This was assisted by weekly attendance at the Macquarie University Bhakti Yoga club, weekly visits to the Hare Krishna temple, Sydney and reading books of spiritual knowledge available at the Hare Krishna Temple. Throughout 2013 the author also had regular chiropractic and remedial massage treatments. However, the most effective method for resolving mental health came from regular visits to the Hare Krishna temple and daily chanting of the Hare Krsna Mantra: Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare / Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. The author would continue the chanting of mantras by weekly visits to Govindas,

 

Sydney in 2014. The author’s health significantly improved after reading the Bhagavad Gita As It Is for the 3rd time in May 2019, where the depression disappeared completely, the anxiety significantly eased off; and thus the author successfully came off anti-depressant drugs. From the 26th May 2019, the author became strictly vegetarian and no consumption of alcohol but still enjoys one cappuccino a day. Further on the 26th June 2019 which coincided with the author’s birthday, the generalized anxiety disorder disappeared completely and the anti-anxiety medication was reduced to very low doses.
