Materials and Methods: A total of 30 people aged between 15 and 25 from were selected as sample population from 100 people and mean value for total score of perceived stress scale (PSS) for sample population before doing meditation regularly was calculated, and they were requested to do meditation 1 time a day. The sample population was monitored regularly. After 1 month, the sample population was asked to answer questions in PSS ones more. Based on their answer, mean value of sample population after practicing meditation for 1 month was calculated. Results: The data collected were tabulated in the graph.

After doing meditation for 1 month, the impact on sample population was that only 10% had high perceived stress and 90% had moderate stress, and none of the sample population had low stress.
