    Observance of the Buddhist Five Precepts, Subjective Wealth, and Happiness Among Buddhists in Bangkok, Thailand.Donnapat Jaiwong & Vanchai Ariyabuddhiphongs - 2010 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 32 (3):327-344.
    This study tests the Buddhist hypothesis that observance of Buddhist Five Precepts leads to subjective wealth, and happiness. Gotama Buddha defined happiness as the result of subjective wealth: having wealth, using wealth, not being in debt, and engaging in a harmless profession. Four hundred residents of Bangkok participated in the study by responding to scales assessing the extent of their observance of the Five Precepts, subjective wealth, and domain satisfactions and life satisfaction. Regression analyses were used to test the hypothesis. (...)

    Peace of Mind and Organizational Citizenship Behavior.Vanchai Ariyabuddhiphongs & Atiwat Pratchawittayagorn - 2014 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 36 (2):233-252.
    A Thai company organizes a weekly sermon and meditation session for its clients and members. We hypothesized that vipassana meditation's positive effects in work would be manifested in peace of mind, loving kindness, and organizational citizenship behavior, that peace of mind would predict OCB, and that loving kindness would mediate the relationship of peace of mind to OCB. Peace of mind is operationally defined as the experience of inner peace and harmony; loving kindness as the thoughts, words, and acts of (...)

    Buddhist Belief in Merit (Punña), Buddhist Religiousness and Life Satisfaction Among Thai Buddhists in Bangkok, Thailand.Vanchai Ariyabuddhiphongs - 2009 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 31 (2):191-213.
    This study operationally defines Buddhist belief in merit , Buddhist religiousness and examines their relationships with life satisfaction. Four hundred Buddhist merit makers at a temple in Bangkok participated in the study. LISREL models show that Buddhist belief in merit predicts Buddhist religiousness and life satisfaction, and Buddhist belief in merit mediates the relationship between Buddhist religiousness and life satisfaction. The different conceptualizations of Buddhist religiousness and life satisfaction and their difference with reference to the future and the present are (...)

    Mother-Daughter Relationships and an Attitude Against Premarital Sex: The Mediating Effect of Buddhist Five Precepts.Vanchai Ariyabuddhiphongs & Saowanee Buaphoon - 2013 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 35 (2):193-212.
    Though premarital sex among Thai young adults resulted in a large number of abortions and child mothers, university students were less likely than vocational students and out-of-school adolescents to have premarital sex. The authors believe that the university students’ attitude against premarital sex is fostered through mother-daughter relationships and an observance of the Buddhist five precepts. To support this contention, the authors conducted a study among 198 female university undergraduate students and hypothesized that mother-daughter relationships were related to an attitude (...)

    Buddhist Generosity: Its Conceptual Model and Empirical Tests.Vanchai Ariyabuddhiphongs - 2016 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 38 (3):316-344.
    This study developed a Buddhist Generosity Scale to assess Buddhist generosity, acts of compassion to give something of value to humans and animals, among Thai Buddhists. Conceptually the Scale consists of two factors: scope—giving to humans and animals, and criticality—the gifts’ importance to the recipients. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses supported the two-factor structure. Convergent validity tests showed its relationships with optimism, hope, and altruism but none with forgiveness; discriminant validity tests found positive relationship with psychological entitlement but none with (...)
