This study shows the relationship between mindfulness, thought suppression and mental fatigue overall and in practitioners of Nichiren Diashonin’s Buddhism in adult participants. The sample included 150 adult participants (75 Buddhism Practicing Respondents and 75 Buddhism non- practicing Respondents). The assessment of responses to three self-rating scales namely Mental fatigue Scale, White Bear Suppression Inventory and Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale indicated that there was significant positive correlation between thought suppression and mental fatigue and significant negative correlation between mindfulness and thought suppression and negative correlation between mindfulness and mental fatigue. In case of mindfulness and mental fatigue, there was no significant difference in the two groups. However for thought suppression, there was a significant difference among practitioners of Buddhism and Non Buddhist practitioners.
