Best Spirituality Book for Depression: The Zen Way by Myokyo-ni
Okay, so I haven’t read this book yet. Permit me a full explanation.
The books on my Best Meditation Books for Depression list that are found in the first section, also titled Best Meditation Books for Depression, are those that I have read and that I can personally vouch for. The other books on this list, under the Other Recommended Meditation Books for Depression heading, are those that I haven’t read yet but that have achieved some degree of recognition and appreciation. (In other words, they’re the books that don’t suck.)
This is one of those books.
I include these along with my personal favorites in order to offer a comprehensive list of the books on this topic for the “spiritual travelers” out there—people who, like me, are always on the lookout for their next inspiring spiritual read.
(By the way, as far as I know this list is the most comprehensive of its kind on the Internet. This includes Amazon and other automated lists, since a large percentage of the books on those lists are miscategorized.)
And don’t forget to read the descriptions of my top-tier Best Books for Depression. Each book listed in the first sections of my Best Books for Depression lists links to a full article that rates how helpful I think the book is for overcoming depression. I call it my “depression effectiveness rating,” and it uses a 10-scale.
Some articles also tell of my personal experiences with the spiritual practices described in the books.
I would absolutely love to help you find greater inner peace and, if needed, overcome depression completely. Feel free to write me at email@example.com.

Finally, it happened. After ten years of thinking about it, I attempted, as the Apostle Paul once wrote, to “pray without ceasing”–to communicate in an ongoing way with the Divine.
