In the present study, no significant difference was found in socioeconomic status between meditators and non-meditators, as has been shown in [Table/Fig-1]. The mean happiness scores and happiness status were compared between meditators and nonmeditators, as has been shown in [Table/Fig-2]. Mean happiness scores of meditators were significantly higher (t=5.88,df = 48, p<0.001) as compared to those of non-meditators. Significantly more meditators were in happy status as compared to non-meditators c2 (Fisherâ€™s exact test) =10.97, 2-tailed p<0.05), which indicated that meditators [24 (96%)] were happier than non-meditators [14 (56%)]. Additionally, meditators expressed significantly higher mean self-satisfaction scores (t=4.47, df=48, p<0.001) as compared to non-meditators, as has been shown in [Table/Fig-2]. No positive or negative correlation was found between happiness scores (r = -0.04205, 95% CI; -0.4301 â€“ 0.3591, p = 0.8418) and selfsatisfaction scores (r = -0.1955, 95% CI; -0.5483 - 0.2165, p= 0.3491) of meditators as well as happiness scores (r = 0.2840, 95% CI; -0.1252 - 0.6107, p = 0.1688) and self-satisfaction scores (r = 0.1578, 95% CI; -0.2533 - 0.5205, p = 0.4514) of non-meditators in relation to their age, as has been shown in [Table/Fig-3]. The years of meditation practice also did not correlate with happiness score (r = -0.1992, 95% CI; -0.5510 â€“ 0.2128, p = 0.3398) as well as with self- satisfaction score (r = 0.03078, 95% CI; -0.3689 â€“ 0.4209, p = 0.8839) in meditators, as has been shown in [Table/Fig-4].
