The present paper intends to make a contribution to the empirical psychology of religion among Hindus. The Santosh-Francis Scale of Attitude toward Hinduism was originally developed and tested among Hindu affiliates living in the United Kingdom and subsequently tested among Hindu affiliates from the Bunt caste in South India. In the present study this instrument was completed by 309 Balinese Hindus (159 males and 150 females). The data support the internal construct reliability of the scale in this context (α = .83) and commend the instrument for wider application for research in the field of the psychology of religion within the Hindu community.
