Mental Health

I saw an outline on the Ayurvedic approach to Mental Health
a. The source of mind is Atma (consciousness)

b. The nature of mind is Sattva

c. Specific means of balancing the mind:
– pure knowledge (gyana) (of the source)
– specific knowledge (vigyan, typically translated as science)
– patience (dhairya)
memory (smriti)
– pure consciousness (Samadhi, via meditation)

As the Yoga Sutra tells us, relieving the ignorance of our true nature is the key to health and the end of suffering.
