Abstract: Mental health is a major concern today and Indian society is not so far behind this. India has a long history of spiritual practices such as chanting i.e. rhythmical repetition of a song, word, prayer or sound. These ancient spiritual practices are helpful in dealing with life’s mental health issues. The aim of this study is to assess the effect of chanting Gayatri Mantra on anger expression and psycho-physiological state of the youth. The sample size is 30 in each group i.e. control and experimental group of age 18-25 years. Tools used in this research were State Trait Anger Expression Inventory (STAXI 2) (Spielberger 1999) [6], Psycho-physiological State Inventory (PPSI) (Sanjay Vohra1990) [5]. Pre test and post test were conducted prior and post intervention program of 21 days and the result obtained on both the test by experimental and control group were assessed to see the effect and benefits of chanting Gayatri mantra. In this study it was found that chanting Gayatri Mantra for 15 minutes helps in reducing state anger, trait anger, anger expression out and increases inward control of anger as well as improves the psycho-physiological state.
