STOTRA KAVACHA (SHIELD OF PRAYERS)
[Stutis / Kavachaas, Ashtottaraas and Sahasranaamaas from the Series of Essence of Puranas]

Marjana /Apamarjana Stotras for Raksha

Agni Deva suggested to Narada Muni the following Stotras to provide safety to human beings for themselves and for others as also mitigate difficulties and bestow happiness:

Om namo Paramaarthyaaya Purushaaya Mahaatmaaney, Aruupa Bahu Rupaaya Vyapiney Paramaatmaney/ Nishkalmashaaya Shraddhaaya Dhyaanayoga rataayacha, Namaskrutya Pravakshaami yat tatsidhyatu mey vachah/ Varaahaaya NrisimhaayaVamanaaya Mahatmaney, Namaskrutya Pravakshaami Yat tatsudyhatu meyvacha/Trivikramaaya Raamaaya Vaikunthaaya Naraaya cha, Namaskruthya pravakshaami yat tat siddhyatu mey vacha/

( Om Paramaartha Swarupa, Prathama Purusha, Mahatma, Niraakaara, Sahsra Rupa, the All Pervading Paramaatma, the Blemishless and the epitome of  Purity, Serenity and ever worthy of meditation: may this inner voice of mine be truthful that my protection is always assured by you; Varaha Deva, Narasiha Deva and Vamana Deva, may my fortification be assured; may Trivikrama Deva, Rama and Vaikunthaya, my sincere salutations to you and may my wellbeing be always assured.)

Varaaha Naraimhesha Vaamanesha Trivikrama, Hayagriva Sarvesha Hrishikesha Haraashubham/Aparaajita Chakraadyaischaturbhih Paramaardhaih, Akhanditaanu bhaavaaistwam Sarvadushta haro bhava/Haraamukasya duritam sarvam cha kushalam kuru, Mrithyu bandhaarthibhayadam durishtasya cha yatphalam/

(Bhagavan Varaha, Nrisimha, Vaamaneswara, Trivikrama, Hayagrivesha, Sarvesha, Hrishikesha! The Unconquerable Parameshwara! May all my ‘Ashubhas’ or inauspicious happenings be demolished! May your ‘Chakra of endless energy and other most powerful ‘Aayudhaas’ wipe out my enemies! May my illnesses and bodily afflictions be obliterated and my sins be destroyed, while bestow upon me ‘Sarva Kushalam’ (total propitiousness) and Kshema (safety). Deva! Provide me with the ‘Phala’ of yagnas devoid of imperfections and indemnify me from untimely death, ill health, shackles of any kind, ill-omens, and frights.)

Paraabhidhyaana sahitaih prayuktam cha abhichaarikam, Garasparsha mahaaroga prayogam jarayaa jara/ Om namo Vasudevaaya namah Krishnaaya khadginey, Namah Pushkara netraaya Keshavaayadi chakriney/ Namah Kamalakinchatkapeeta nirmala vaasasey, Mahahavir puraskandhadhrushta chakriney/Danshtrodhrutakshiti bhrutey Trayee Mutrtimatey namah, Mahayagna Varaahaaya Shobhaaganka shaayaney/Taptahaataka keshaantadjjwalatpaavaka lochana, Vajraadhika sprasha Divya Simha Namostutey/ Kaashapaayaati hraswaaya Rugyajushssaama bhushiney, Tubhyam Vaamana Rupaayaakramatey gaam Namo Namah/

(Those who have the evil-feelings of harming others by way of perfoming ‘Abhichaarika Karmas’ or negative deeds such as administering poisonous food / drinks ought to be obliterated and their misdeeds be retalliated. Vasudeva, Khadgadhari, Chakradhari, Kamalanayana and ‘Peetambaradhara’, who wears excellent clothes of saffron colour, please accept my salutations. You are the Yagna Varaha and Veda Vigraha who had saved ‘Prithvi’and Vedas by your powerful ‘damshtras’ (tusks); You are Narasimha who had piercing and dazzling eyes and iron-like sharp nails by whose mere touch was slaughtered the invincible demon, Hiranya –kashipu; You are Vamana Deva the embodiment of Rug-Yajur and Sama Vedas and manifested as the Virat Swarupa who occupied the Three Worlds to facilitate the re-installation of Devas in Swarga and to bring the Universe to Order as Trivikrama)

Varaahasesha drishtaani sarva paapa phalaani vai, Marda Marda Mahaa Damshtra Marda Mardacha tatphalam/ Narasimha karaalasya danta praanataanalojjwala, Bhanja bhanja ninaadena dushtaan pashyaarti- naashana/ Rugyajussaama garbhaabhi raavirbhavar Vaamanarupadhruk, Prashaam Sarva Duhkhaani nayatvasya Janaardana/ Ekaahikam Dwayahikam cha tatha Tridivasam Jwaram, Chaturthikam tathaatyugram tathaiva satatam jwaram/ Doshothyam sannipaatestham tathaiva ganthukam jwaram, Shamamnayaashu Govindachhindhi chhindhyasya Vedanaam/

(Varaha rupi Narayana, please devastate all kinds of dangerous diseases born out of long standing sins; Maha Varaha! Vikata Nrisimha! Do ravage the enemies who occupied my fortunes and fate for long; Vamana deha dhaari! Being the embodiment of all ‘confidential Tatwas, kindly provide solace and alleviate sufferings of physical and psychological nature to human beings. Govinda! Humanity is suffering from descriptions of various diseases like Tridoshaja, Sannipaataja, Agantuka, Ekaahika, Dwaahika, Traahika, Atyanta Ugra, and so on. Please extinguish these and other diseases, Parama Deva!

Netra duhkham Shiro duhkham duhkhamchodara sambhavaam, Anishwaasamatishwaasham paritaapam savepathum/ Gudaghraanaanghri rogaanscha kushthu rogaamstatha kshayam, kaamalaamdeesthatha rogaanprameyhaamchaati daarunam/ Bhagandara –atisaaraamscha mukharogaamscha valguleem, Ashmareem mutrakrucchaamscha rogaanaamscha daarunaan/ ye vaataprabhaavaa rogaa ye cha pittha samudbhavaah, Kaphodbhavaascha ye kechid yechaanye saamnipaatikaah/ Aagantukaaschaye rogaa lutaavisphotakaadayah, the sarvam prashamamyaantu Vaasudevasya kirtanaan/ Vilayam yaantutey sarvey Vishnorucchaaraneyacha, Kshayam gacchaantu Govinda naaocchaarana bheshajaat, Nashyati sakalaa rogaah Satyam Satyam vadaamyaham/ 

(May those persons suffering from eyes, head, stomach, breathing, sweating, shivering, mulavyadhi, nasal problems, foot diseases, leprosy, kshaya, kaamalaadi roga, bhagandar, atisaara, facial problems, valguli, stones, kidneys, and so on be cured.  By virtue of Vaasudeva Sankeertana, all kinds of Vaataja, Pittaja, kaphaja, sannipaataja, Aagantuka, lutaa (Makari), Visphota (boils) etc. could be cured by the swing of Suarshana chakra. By taking the names of Achyuta, Ananta and Govinda, various diseases would be destroyed indeed!

Sthaavaram jangamam vaapi krutrimam chaapi yadvisham, Dantodbhavam nakhabhavamaakaasha prabhavam visham/ Lootikaadi prabhavam yaccha vishamanyatu duhkhadam, Shamam nayatu tatsarvam Vaasudevasya keertanam/ Grahaan Pretagrahaamschaapi tathaa vai daakinigrahaan, Betaalaamsha Pishaachaamscha Gandharvaan Yaksha Raakshasaan/ Shakuniputanaadyaamscha tathaa Vainaayakaangrahaan, Mukhamandeem tathaa kruraam Revatim Vrudbharevatim/ Vruddhika –akhyaanangrahaams tatha Matrugrahaanapi, Baalaasya Vishnoscharitam hantu Balagrahaanimaan/ Vriddhaascha ye Grahaah kechida ye cha Balagrahah kwachit, Narasimhaya tey drushtyaa dagdhaa ye chaapi Youvaney/ Sataakaraala vadano Naarasimho Mahabalah, Grahaanaseshaannihseshaan karotu jagato hitah/ Narasimha Mahasiha Jjwaamaalojjwalaanana, Grahaanaseshaan Sarvesha khaada Khaadogni lochana/

(Bhagavan Vaasudeva’s  Samkeertana would certainly appease several types of poisons like Sthavara, Jangama, Kritrima, Dantodhbhuta, Nakhodbhuta, Aakaashodbhuta and Lutikadbyotpanna varieties. Kirtanas on ‘Bala Krishna charitra’ would decimate Balagrahas like Grahas, Preta Grahas, Dakini Grahas, Vetaals, Pishachaas, Gandharvas, Yakshas, Rakshasas, Shakuni-Putana Grahas, Vinayaka grahas, Mukha mandikaas, Cruel Revatis, Vrudbarevati, Vrudhbhika graha and Matru Grahas.May Bhagavan Narasimha’s extreme vision burn off Vriddha, Bala and Yuva Grahas into ashes. Maha Nrisimha! Do devastate all the Dushta Grahas with your piercing looks and provide us liberation.

Ye rogaa ye Mahotpaataa Yadvisham ye Mahagrahah, Yaanicha krurabhutaani graha –peedaashcha daarunaah/
Shastra khateshu ye doshaa Jwaalaagardhabhakaadayah, Taani Sarvaani Sarvaatmaa Paraamaatmaa Janaardanah/
Sarva dushtaanirakshaamsi kshayam yaantu Vibhishana, Praachyaam Prateechyaam cha dishi Dakshinottarasthaa/
Rakshaam karotu Sarvaatmaa Narasimhah swagarjithaih, Divi Bhuvantarikshye cha Pushthitah paarsyetogratah/
Rakshaam karotu Bhagavaan Bahurupee Janardanah/
Yatha Vishnurjagatsarwam sadevasura maanusham, tey na Satyena drushtaani shamasya vrajantu vai/

(Vasudeva! Do assume which ever Form that you intend to; but destroy all kinds of diseases, utpataas, poison, Maha Grahas, Bhutas, Graha Peedas, ‘Shastra kshata’ or surgery-oriented tribulations, burns, and any other difficulties. May Sarvatma Nrisimha guard our Eastern, Western, Northern and Southern directions with his frightening roars; May Janardana protect us in Bhuloka, Swarga loka, ‘Antariksha’ and all that one could not be perceived by us! May Bhagavan Vishnu who is the Swarupa of the entire Universe including Devas, Daityas and human beings provide shield to one and all and safeguard us all from all kinds of physical and other evils and diseases!)

Yada Vishnow smritey sadyah samkshayam yaanti paatakaah, Satyena tena sakalam dushtamasya prashaamyatu, Yathaa Yagneswaro Vishnurdeveshvapi hi geeyatey/
Satyana tena sakalam yanmayoktam tathaastu tat, Shantirastu Shivam chaastu dushtamasya prashaamyatu/
Vaasudeva shareetarothaih kushainirnaashatam maya, Aapaamaarjitu Govindo Naro Narayanastathaa/
Tathaastu Sarva duhkhaanaam prashamevachanaadvareh, Apaamaarjanakam shastam Sarvarogaadivaaranam/
Aham Harih kushaa Vishnur hataa rogaa mayaa tava/

(At the very thought of Shri Vishnu, the long-stored groups of sins wilt away instantly and in the same manner all the diseases fade away too. Vishnu is always extolled by all Devatas and this truth underlines the fact that sins and diseases wither away for human beings too. The Kusha grass is stated to emerge from Vishnu’s own body and little wonder that the ‘Apaamarjana Stotra’ enables the sins and maladies of devotees to get flushed out of their physiques for good).
