Depression is an important psychiatric disorder in medical condition. This can interfere significantly an individual's ability to function. The difficult life situation and unrealistic thinking are most important precipitating factors for depressive disorder in majority of cases. These problems cannot be tackled completely through pharmacotherapy unless their causes are rooted out completely by psychotherapeutic intervention. Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is an established treatment for depressive illnesses. In the present study a comparative evaluation of CBT has been done with the Sattvavajaya, the Indian form of psychotherapy described in ancient medical literature of Ayurveda. The intra group comparisons based on the assessment of results on N-I scale, MHQ and Adjustment scale have been presented, which demonstrate comparable results.
