Abstract: Researches and studies have shown that Yogasanas, Pranayama and meditation help in enhancing memory and improving attention, but no study is available on the effect of traditional Vedic chanting on memory and sustained attention, which is one of the important features of cognitive abilities. The present study compared the effect of chanting group, who had minimum two-years experience on memory and sustained attention with that of non-chanting group who had no exposure to such type of chanting. Data was analyzed using non-parametric Mann Whitney U test. Chanting group showed significant increased scorings in both the memory tests and considerable reduction in total error and total time taken for cancellation tests compared to non-chanting practitioners.
