 (Those who fulfil this Kavacha-by reciting it three lakh times and attain Siddhi-would obtain ‘Tejas’, ‘Yoga’, ‘Jnaana’and ‘Bala-paraakrama’ as well as in my own case; May ‘Omkara’ save my head and my greetings saying Namo Rameswaraaya secure my fore-head; may my reverence saying Namo Radheswaraya protect both of my eyes. Let the shabda Krishna govern my ears; let HeyHarey shelter my nose; let the Swaha mantra save any problem to my tongue; let Krishnaaya swaaha accord my well being; let the ‘Shodashaakshra’ Mantra not create any hardship to my throat; hreem Krishnaaya namah should provide safety to my face; the Mantra Kleem Krishnaaya namah should guard my both hands; let the Ashtaakshari Mantra Namo Gopaanganeshaya guard my teeth and mouth; let this mantra : Om Namo Bhagavatey Raasa mandale -shaa Swaahaa : Let the Raasa Mandala safeguard my chest  by Shri Krishna; Yem Krishnaaya Swaahaa : Let this Mantra save any problem to my ears; Om Vishnavey Swaaha : Let this Mantra protect my ‘Asthipanjara’; Om Haraye namah : Let the Mantra shield my body-back and feet; Om Govardhanoddhaaraya Swaaha : May Shri Krishna provide shelter to my entire body .Let me be safeguarded by Shri Krishna from the East, by Madhava in the Agneya side, Gopeswara in the Southern side; Nandanandana  in the Nirutyakona, Govinda on the western front; Raadhike -swara in the Vayavyakona, Rameswara on the Northern side, Bhagavan Achyuta in the Ishaana kona and let Narayana look after my welfare from all the sides). Shri Krishna said: ‘Brahma! This Parama Kavacha for your total protection and is as good as my own Existence.This Kavacha bestows the Punya of performing Ashwamedha and  Vajapeya Yagnas and should be worn with external and internal purity.[Essence of Brahma Vaivarata Purana]
