Om Mani Padme Hum is a six syllable mantra in Tibetian Buddhism associated with the bodhisattva – Avalokitesvara. This mantra as known by the Buddhist generates positive energies within the body through mystical vibrations and frequencies when chanted repeatedly. The mantra has shown enhanced cognitive effects in organisms without auditory apparatus where the interaction is assumed to be taking place at a cellular and biochemical level (Pereira 2015a, b; Pereira 2016a,b).

Enhanced cognitive effects in snails (Physa acuta) after exposure to meditational music and low-level near-infrared laser
TLDR
It is confirmed that low level near infrared light and sound vibrations at 260 – 280 Hz induce a significant effect on the neural system at a cellular level, which is evident with the enhanced cognitive abilities; the mechanisms for which need to be evaluated further.

TLDR
The results obtained suggest that music can alter cellular morpho-functional parameters, such as cell size and granularity in cultured cells, suggesting that music or audible sounds could modulate physiological and pathophysiological processes.
