Abstract: This study hypothesizes that peace of mind significantly predicts organizational citizenship behavior and that the relationship of peace of mind to organizational citizenship behavior through the mediating effect of loving-kindness is significant. To support the hypotheses, questionnaires were given to 147 meditators at Young Buddhists Association of Thailand in Bangkok. Peace of mind was defined as an internal state of peace and harmony, which can be cultivated by meditation practice. By practicing meditation for a period of time, meditators will have peace of mind and loving-kindness. Loving-kindness was defined as the state where person behaves well to others such as wishing someone well or being friendly to others. Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) was defined as the extra work-related behaviors that go beyond duties such as working extra time or being punctual without expecting rewards. Regression analysis with the bootstrapping was used to test the hypotheses. Results supported the hypotheses: peace of mind predicted OCB, and the relationship of peace of mind to OCB through the mediation of loving-kindness was significant. Meditation practice seems to engender in the practitioner peace of mind and loving kindness that are related to OCB. Results seem to support the usefulness of meditation practice in organizations.
