Abstract: Life satisfaction is an individual's perception about how well their life is progressing. It is an accepted fact that spirituality makes us better human beings. In this empirical study an attempt has been made to study the effect of Vipassana meditation, an ancient meditation technique on the life satisfaction of employees. We have used satisfaction with life scale (SWLS) developed by Diener et al. (1985) to collect data. In total 240 samples were collected from each group of employees namely non-meditator and meditators. Detailed statistical analysis was done using SPSS ver. 20.0. Group differences were tested by t-test and univariate analysis. Results indicate that satisfaction with life scores is higher in case of meditator employees and the scores are independent of demographic factors. Also, the effect of meditation variables on SWLS scores is discussed. The results validate use of Vipassana meditation as an intervention in an organisational setup.
