The relationship between death anxiety and religion/s explored, it was assumed that the role of religion could be associated with death anxiety in a fixed manner or it could vary. Following tests were used Death Anxiety Scale, Daily Experience Spirituality Scale and Centrality of Religiosity Scale. 100 subjects falling between 40-60 years of age belonging to similar area and followers of two different religions, 50 belonging to religion one in Group-A and 50 belonging to religion two in Group-B were tested. The results reflected that religiosity was significantly and positively correlated with faith (p < .01), negatively associated with death anxiety (p < .01) and negatively correlated with death anxiety (p < .01). The revealing finding that came in light was the significant differences of religiosity, faith and death anxiety between Religion-A and Religion-B. It was also observed that faith was significantly higher among Religion-A respondents as compared to Religion-B respondents. Finding suggests further explorations in the direction to explore and address an inevitable part of human presence.
