Moral values appear to be rapidly decreasing among the youth. They are exposed to adversity in life and are more likely to engage in antisocial behaviour. Spiritual education will assist young people in coping with adversity and living meaningful life. Hence, the present study was undertaken to determine the effect of spiritual education on the moral values of youth. A total of 400 youth were selected for the study. Two hundred youth (100 from Majuli and 100 from Barpeta) attending a general degree course and exposed to spiritual education and another two hundred youth (100 from Jorhat and 100 from Kamrup metro) attending a degree course in a general college and not exposed to any institutional spiritual education were considered. To make the group homogeneous, the respondents from the age group of 20-23 studying in Bachelor level (2nd year and 3rd year) were considered as the sample of the study. A self-structured interview schedule on moral values was used for data collection. The study's result showed that the youth with spiritual education had higher level of moral values than those without spiritual education.
