Abstract


Numerous studies on Psychological well-being have been conducted in a variety of settings. Literature demonstrated its close connection to Spirituality. The purpose of the current study was to examine the relationship and role of spirituality in young adults' psychological well-being. The sample included 120 young individuals (60 females & 60 males) from Jaipur and neighbouring cities, ranging in age from 18 to 28. Assessment was done using the Psychological Well-Being Scale (Ryff & Singer, 1998) and Spirituality Scale (Delaney, 2003). Pearson's correlation and t-test were used to examine gender differences as well as the relationship between the two variables Psychological well-being and Spirituality. Both male and female young adults showed positive associations between psychological well-being and spirituality. The t-test results revealed a significant difference in young adults' spirituality amongst the two genders. On the other hand, there was no discernible variation in the psychological well-being of young adults between females and males. The findings of this study may have suggestions for enhancement of psychological well-being applicable in many environments. Future research directions are also covered.
