Abstract: Researches and studies have shown that <i style="">Yogasanas, Pranayama</i> and meditation help in enhancing memory and improving attention, but no study is available on the effect of traditional <i style="">Vedic</i> 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.
