What is Kavach ?
Kavach is the Practical Way of Requesting the Lord’s Protection. This protection is made available through surrender to the Lord via the Kavach or armour hymns, for example, the armour hymn of Lord Sarabesvara Siva, the great protector, motivator and well wisher. It implies protection. The Kavach mantras are Armour Mantras or Protection Mantras that explicitly request the Lord to protect us. While the very meaning of the word mantra is to protect, the Kavach Mantras make it that much more explicit. The efficacy of the armour hymns depend on the devotee’s faith. They work best for those who have surrendered to the Lord. He or she who surrenders every part of his or her body to the Lord and seeks His protection will surely get it. This is why we have provided the meanings for the Ganesha armour hymn below so you can see how the Lord’s protection is explicitly invoked in each line of the hymn. It should become clear that the Lord’s protection becomes available when every part of the body is surrendered to the Lord’s care and all activities are done for Him, by Him and through Him.
