Abstract
Background: Om chanting was reported to lower blood pressure acting through parasympathetic system. It was hypothesized that listening to Om along with chanting may have additional benefits.

Aims and Objectives: The study was designed to observe the effectiveness of Om chanting and listening on depression, anxiety, and stress in pre-hypertensive women.

Materials and Methods: The present study is an experimental study. Eighty cases of newly diagnosed pre-hypertensive women between the age of 25 and 40 years were included in the study after obtaining written informed consent. They were randomly assigned to waitlist and Om chanting groups with 40 participants in each group. After recording the baseline values, corresponding intervention will be given to the participants of intervention groups for a period of 3 months.

Results: There was a significant decrease in the depression, anxiety, and stress scores in the intervention group when compared with the waitlist group.

Conclusion: There was a significant decrease in the depression, anxiety, and stress scores followed by the practice of Om chanting. The study recommends further detailed studies in this area to recommend the potential role of Om chanting in clinical practice.

Key words: Psychological Parameters; Depression; Om Chanting; Stress
