Buddhism and Depression
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
Hi. This is a community for Buddhists who are suffering or have suffered from depression or some other mood disorder. Also welcome are interested parties in either Buddhism or depression. I decided to create this community because religion being such a major part of my life, I inevitably conceieve of my depression in Buddhist terms. Hopefully together we can talk about issues which arise and support each other.
if you have any suggestions for interests to add ot the list, or ways to get this community up and running, please let me know.
The rules of this community are essentially those of right speech - we do not speak harsh, divisive, or untrue words, only what is beneficial for ourselves and others. Every person in this community (indeed, every person) is a suffering being like ourselves who deserves our love and respect.

May all beings be well and happy and free from suffering.
