Sri Venkateswara Vajra Kavacha Stotram Lyrics in English
Narayanam Parabrahma Sarvakaarana Kaaranam
Prapadye Venkatesakhyaam Tadeva Kavacham Mama
Sahasra Seersha Purusho Venkatesas Sirovatu
Pranesha Prananilayaha Pranan Rakshatu Mey Harihi
Aakasa Raat Sutaa Naatha Aatmanam Me Sadavatu

Sri Venkateswara Vajra Kavacha Stotram Meaning:
I bow and salute that Venkatesa,
Who is lord Narayana himself,
Who is the divine Lord of all,
And who is the cause of all causes,
And chant his armor for myself
Let my head be protected by,
Lord Venkatesha with thousand aspects,
Who is the lord of all souls,
And place where the soul merges.
Let the Consort of the daughter of the sky,
May protect my soul always,
Let the body got from the lord of Lords,
Be protected by Lord Venkateswara.
Let the soul like consort of Alamelu Manga.
Take care of all my works always,
And lead me to good results of all of them.
This diamond armour of Venkatesa,
which can never be broken,
If read daily in the evening and morn,
Would help one to cross death without fear.
Here ends Sri Venkateswara Vajra Kavacha Stotram ||
