Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute published a research paper that has provided scientific proof of a reduction in suicidal tendencies with the help of yogic practices.
A Survey of suicidal tendencies on 20,000 college students, age range from 17 to 23 years was conducted throughout the state of Maharashtra. The survey data indicated that 2% of the students were inclined towards moderate to high levels of suicidal tendencies.
Regular yoga practice for one month might have strengthened the adjustment process and reduced the frustration. This led to a descending profile of suicidal tendencies during pre-post and follow-up tests. As per the research, a reduction in frustration and improvement in mental health may be the cause for the suicidal tendency decline after one month of yoga training.
