ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between perceived quality of life and experiential factors(cognitive and affective) associated with a temple stay. The data was collected from 765 temple stay participants throughout 30 different Buddhist temples that accommodate guests, and analyzed by structural equation modeling. Results indicate that three experiential factors(Being with nature, Learning, and Relaxation) are useful in predicting the level of positive emotions. In turn, positive emotions significantly influence perceived quality of life. As such, it is concluded that three experiential factors(Being with nature, Self-growth & Reflection, Relaxation) are antecedents for the perceived quality of life. In addition, the mediating role of emotion in the relationship between experiences and the perceived quality of life is also examined.
