The purpose of this study was to see the effect of mindfulness meditation on children’s happiness. Twenty-eight boys in the age range 14 to 16 years served as a sample in the experiment. They were divided into 2 groups of 14 subjects each. One group was given mindfulness meditation training for 20 minutes in the morning and evening for five days a week till eight weeks. The other groupe served as control. Data on happiness was collected on the subjects in both the groups before and after the training by using the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire. The data so obtained was statistically analysed by using the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) with SPSS ver 22.0. The results suggested that the meditation had a significant impact on increasing happiness.
