‘Health’ is an elusive word. Most people who consider themselves healthy are not. And many people, who are suffering from some known disease, may be relatively spiritually healthy. Health is a concept which does not merely relate to the absence of disease, of healthy working of organs, or having good thoughts or well-being. Health is a holistic concept. It relates to a person as a whole. Health is regarded by WHO as a fundamental human right, and correspondingly, all people should have access to basic resources for health.

Spiritual well-being is a cornerstone of the well-being paradigm for psychological, physical, emotional, spiritual and for total well-being (Dintiman and Greenberg 1989; O’Donnell, 1988; Payne & Hahn, 1989; Seaward, 1988). Spiritual wellness holds as strong relationship to health and general well-being (Hadaway, 1978) and has been a construct of interest for several investigations.

The present investigator has documented that spiritual well-being is influential in numerous facets of the human experience, including psychological and physical well-being. Hence a comprehensive understanding of health and its impact on the individuals’ spiritual well-being is of vital importance. The main aim of the present study is to examine the relationship between spiritual well-being and its factors with general health, and factors of general health among Kashmiri students.
