Guruji, how to balance between wisdom and emotion? Often my emotions dominate my wisdom and I get into depression.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

When you feel you are getting into depression it is wisdom that takes you out of it. It is emotion that sinks you into depression and it is wisdom which takes you out of the depression.
At least you had this intention to ask the question. Wanting to know the answer itself shows there is some wisdom there. Often depressed people don’t talk at all. They don’t answer, they don’t ask questions and they don’t want to do anything. But this is good, you have this much wisdom that you wanted to ask this question. You wanted to get out of depression. You are already out of it, okay!
Do Sudarshan Kriya and some more advance courses and you will easily come out.
