Aim of the Study
The current study aimed to assess the 22-item MSES-R (Cayoun et,al, 2012)in community sample by adapting it into Urdu Language. The second aim was to establish its psychometric properties by doing test-retest reliability analysis and confirmatory factor analysis.

A sample of men and women (N=186), was taken from Lahore Purposive and convenient sampling was done to collect the data. The study comprised of two phases in total. In phase I, the English version of MSES-R was translated and adapted in Urdu, in the phase II translated version was backwards translated and a pilot study was done. After that, the main study to establish psychometric properties was initiated which included reliability analysis, validity, CFA and test-re test reliability analysis on the data.

The six-factor MSES-R demonstrated a strong model fit and stability, with a high correlation between scores collected two weeks apart. It contributes to the field of mindfulness research, particularly for clinicians, as it offers an efficient way to measure mindfulness skills. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) results confirmed the model’s goodness of fit, and composite reliability values exceeded 0.7.

In conclusion, the MSES-R was established to be a valuable tool for assessing mindfulness in a population, with good reliability and convergent validity.
