A Comparative study of self-esteem between meditation practitioners and non-practitioners of senior citizen
Author(s): Dr. Pramod Ramdas Chaudhari
The purpose of the study was to compare the self-esteem between the Meditation practitioners and Non-practitioners. For this purpose 30 (thirty) male subjects of each group were selected. The age of the subjects were ranged between 50 to 60 years. SECS Self-Esteem Questionnaire developed by Lilburn S. Barksdale of California was used to assess the self-esteem of Meditation Practitioners and Non-practitioners. To find out the significant difference between the means of the two groups independent ‘t’ test was used and the hypothesis was tested at .05 level of confidence. The findings of statistical analysis revealed that there was significant mean difference between the Meditation practitioners and non-practitioners in Self-Esteem, because the calculated t-ratio value of 8.49 is greater than the tabulated t-value of 2.0021 at 0.05 level of confidence for the 58 degrees of freedom. It was also learnt from the findings that the mean value of Non-Practitioners’ self-Esteem was higher than that of Meditation Practitioners. Under the limitations and findings of this study it seems reasonably fair to conclude that Non-Meditation practitioners have higher self-esteem compared to regular Meditation practitioners who possessed lower self-esteem.
