In this work we study the mantra and Vedic chants used for meditation and convert them to time series with the frequency of 44100 Hertz. We then perform the mathematical and statistical analysis of these chants and compare these results with few of the popular known songs in Hindi, Kannada and Spanish/English. We also consider the Tirumala temple bell sound for our analysis and study. We conclude that the meditation songs are lyapunov stable and in fact they are asumptotically stable. And hence are perfect for meditation.
