Best Spirituality Book for Depression: “Lovingkindness” by Sharon Salzberg


Best Spirituality Book for Depression: Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness by Sharon Salzberg

Meditation is such a personal practice. For the right person, lovingkindness meditation is a perfect fit; for others, it’s just one more good option among many. Definitely worth knowing about for all.

Can this book help me overcome depression?


Does it address depression specifically? What does it say that can help?


In her most popular book, this well-regarded author discusses “metta” meditation, a form of meditation that involves repeating thoughts of love to others over and over (“may you be well, may you be healthy,” etc.). She provides information on the benefits of the practice and its proper implementation.

Salzberg believes one of the main benefits of lovingkindness meditation is greater happiness and inner peace.
