Depression is an extremely common illness that affects people of all ages, gender, and socio-economic groups, and is a proven silent killer. To over this illness, Bramha Kumaris have organised a free seven day lecture series on the ‘Easy methods of prevention and cure of depression and Maha Shivratri Mahotsav Samoroh’ from February 20 to February 26, 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Dayanand Bandodkar Football Ground, Campal.
During the course of seven days, doctors, psychotherapists, trainers, and authors along with meditation teachers will demonstrate and educate people on how to overcome depression.
Since nature protects human beings, the main focus will be on natural prescriptions to avoid depression while the catchphrase for the programme will be ‘Let’s Talk’ which in itself will be a positive prescription for depression.
“We have organised this festival on the occasion of Shivratri to let people know why this festival is celebrated, and through this festival we will highlight depression. We aim to cure depression and make India healthy and on the other side we will worship Mahadev along with our families,” said raj yoga teacher, B K Nirmala, at a press conference.
