Background: Psychologic behavior plays a key role in the outcome of any treatment or therapy. It was recommended to assess the psychologic status of the patient along with the clinical examination and also counsel him with adequate management therapies. Ragas have a high impact on mental well-being. Listening to ragas was reported to be highly effective in regulating the blood pressure and heart rate. Methods: The present study involved 30 (10 males and 20 females) preoperative patients who will be undergoing cataract surgery in 2 days and within the age group of 55 to 60 years from the ophthalmology department. The patients were subjected to listen to Raga Bhairavi for 30 minutes for 2 days. Results: There is a significant decrease in depression anxiety and stress levels followed by raga therapy. Conclusion: There is a significant decrease in depression anxiety and stress levels followed by raga therapy. There is a strong need for further studies with multiple centers and a higher sample size to recommend raga therapy in the management of mental health problems in the patients.
