Durga Kavacham Meaning:
Oh Devi, I am telling you the armor which gets you everything,
Reading or making others read, men get rid of all their sorrows.
If he who does not know learns this Kavacham,
Along with the Durga Mantram,
He would add to himself the strength,
Of the five serpents again.
Let Uma Devi protect my head,
Let my forehead be protected by her who carries the soola,
Let the lion protect my eyes,
And let her who lives near the gate protect my ears.
Let she who is like incense protect my nose,
Let she who carries everything protect my face,
Let Chandika Devi protect my tongue,
Let Soupathrika protect my neck.
Let Asoka Vasini protect my consciousness
Let Vajra Dharini protect my two arms,
Let Lalitha Devi protect my heart,
Let my belly be protected by She who rides on a lion.
Let Bhagwathi Devi protect my hips,
Let She who lives on Vindhya protect my two thighs,
Let the very strong one protect my calf,
And let she who lives on all beings protect my two feet.
Thus stands the Devi who protects the three worlds,
Please protect all my body parts,
My salutations to Goddess Durga.
