The present study aimed at investigating the role as well as relation of spirituality and psychological well-being of young adults. The sample comprised of 160 young adults (60 males & 60 females) studying in different central universities situated in New Delhi, India. They were administered with Spirituality scale (Delaney, 2003) and Psychological well-being scale (Ryff & Singer, 1998). To study the gender difference as well as the relation between both the groups on the measures of spirituality and psychological well-being, t-test and correlation were applied. Further stepwise multiple regression analysis was used to find out the spirituality dimension which significantly predicted psychological well-being of young adults. Results of t-test showed significant difference between the two groups. Positive correlations were found between the dimensions of spirituality with overall psychological well-being and its dimensions autonomy and self acceptance; overall spirituality and its dimensions self-discovery and eco-awareness with self-acceptance dimension of psychological well-being; self-discovery dimension of spirituality with positive relations with others' dimension of psychological well-being. Negative correlations were found between eco-awareness and relationship dimensions of spirituality with personal growth and self-acceptance dimensions of psychological well-being, respectively. Result of multiple regression analysis revealed self-discovery dimension of spirituality as the sole predictor of psychological well-being.

Abstract


The present study aimed at investigating the role as well as relation of spirituality and psychological well-being of young adults. The sample comprised of 160 young adults (60 males & 60 females) studying in different central universities situated in New Delhi, India. They were administered with Spirituality scale (Delaney, 2003) and Psychological well-being scale (Ryff & Singer, 1998). To study the gender difference as well as the relation between both the groups on the measures of spirituality and psychological well-being, t-test and correlation were applied. Further stepwise multiple regression analysis was used to find out the spirituality dimension which significantly predicted psychological well-being of young adults. Results of t-test showed significant difference between the two groups. Positive correlations were found between the dimensions of spirituality with overall psychological well-being and its dimensions autonomy and self acceptance; overall spirituality and its dimensions self-discovery and eco-awareness with self-acceptance dimension of psychological well-being; self-discovery dimension of spirituality with positive relations with others' dimension of psychological well-being. Negative correlations were found between eco-awareness and relationship dimensions of spirituality with personal growth and self-acceptance dimensions of psychological well-being, respectively. Result of multiple regression analysis revealed self-discovery dimension of spirituality as the sole predictor of psychological well-being.
