ABSTRACT. World Health Organization defines Health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Mental well-being is a fundamental component of WHO's definition of health. Good mental health enables people to realize their potential, cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively, and contribute to their communities. On the other hand, WHO also states the fact that at least 350 million people live with depression, and it is the leading cause of disability worldwide. It affects not only the person with depression, but their loved ones too and it also limits one to achieve one's full potential. In this paper, I attempt to show how practicing Mettā Bhāvanā, an ancient Buddhist meditation technique, which is a Pali term, as mentioned in the text Karaṇīyamettā Sutta, with an intention for cultivation of Loving-Kindness, combined with modern Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) technique can help one to reduce emotional suffering and to achieve a state of mental well-being, which in turn, can enable one to alleviate emotional suffering and realize one's true potential.
