It has also presented studies on the footprint of mindfulness and how mindfulness can facilitate self-acceptance, a key component of happiness. Considering this variety of ways in which mindfulness has been used to improve the well-being of study participants, this essay proposes that mindfulness could be used to cultivate happiness for everyone.

Actually, collectivist culture, culture stressing benefit of the group which is traditionally culture of East Asian, may play a role (Markus & Kitayama, 1991). In the collectivist culture, socialization practices do not emphasize high self-esteem expression since it could run counter to culturally valued attributes promoting group harmony (Kim & Markus, 1999). On the other hand, the individualistic country such as the United States stresses the expression of high self-esteem by placing value on freedom and individual rights (Chao, 1995). Consequently, it explains why Asian Americans score lower than Whites or African Americans on self-report measures. Accordingly, research has shown that Asian Americans are more collectivistic than European Americans, and there were no differences between African Americans and European Americans (Oyserman, Coon, & Kemmelmeier, 2002, p. 27).
