The Relation of Attachment to God with Spirituality among Yoga Practitioners
Context: Attachment to God and Spirituality are the topic for great concern among Yoga practitioners. Hall, Fujikava, Halcrow and Hill (2009) suggested that attachment to God and Implicit spiritual knowledge were related with each other. The present investigation is an effort to study the relation of attachment to God with Spirituality among Yoga practitioners. For this purpose yoga practitioners (N=60) with age ranging from 35 to 60 years were selected as sample from the various Yoga Training Centres and Institutions of Delhi NCR. For assessing attachment to God, Attachment to God Inventory (AGI) given by Beck and McDonald was employed and for assessing spirituality, Spirituality Scale (SS) developed by Hadart et al was used. Results of the present study were analysed using Pearson-r correlation. The main finding of the current investigation is that there is no significant correlation any of the dimensions of attachment to God and spirituality except anxious attachment to God (dimension of attachment to God) and belief in God (dimension of spirituality), which are negatively correlated (r=.276) at 0.05 level. The study has important implications for intervention programs.
