Inspired by a recent battle with depression due to the inscesant summer rain, here, on the West Coast of Scotland. I struggle with SAD at this time of year when the light levels return to winter levels and only the slugs and snails are happy.

Kleshas (Sanskrit: क्लेश, translit. kleśa; Pali: किलेस kilesa; Standard Tibetan: ཉོན་མོངས། nyon mongs), in Buddhism, are mental states that cloud the mind and manifest in unwholesome actions. Kleshas include states of mind such as anxiety, fear, anger, jealousy, desire, depression, etc.
