Abstract: Stress has become inevitable in today's contemporary life. Mild to acute, it is prevailing to every walk of life from which people are unable to escape. Researchers has defined stress in many ways but in general any feeling that is unpleasant and remains for a longer period in mind, is stress. A clutter of disturbing or negative thoughts that mind cannot manage. For this, mind has to be strong enough to handle such hard feelings so as to keep itself at peace. Mental abilities or emotional intelligence can be built with the help of meditation techniques, which act as therapeutic aid to the mind. Consequently, our research starts with meditation as the main component in the hypothesised model, followed by EI as intervening variables to explain PSR. The research has followed the post positivist approach in explaining how regular practice of meditation can influence PSR among women. The present study assumes that EI mediates between meditation and PSR believing that reasoning with emotions that is fostered through regular meditation practice play prime psychological instrument in establishing relationship between meditation and PSR.
