The sample of the present investigation comprises (N=100) respondents, 50 Yogic and 50 Non-Yogic practitioners. Yogic practitioners were selected from different yogic health centres. Non-yogic practitioners were selected from different part of life. The age of the respondents were found to be ranging in the case of both groups (yogic and non-yogic group) between 18-55 years. Mental Health of individuals was assessed by a highly standardized Mental Health Inventory (MHI) which was developed by Srivastava and Banerjee (1997).
