Hayagreeva Kavacham

Hayagreeva Kavacham
(Armour of Hayagreeva)

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Hayagreeva is a horse faced form of Lord Vishnu. There are several stories about the origin of this God. He is included in the minor incarnations of Lord Vishnu. It is known that he killed as asura called Hayagreeva who had a horse’s head. People who follow Vaishavism believe that    he is the God of knowledge. This Kavacham is from Atharva Veda.))

For the   great manthra called “The armour of Hayagreeva”  the sage is Hayagreeva, the meter is Anushtup   and God addressed is the divine God Hayagreeva.

Om Sou Vedhanidhaye nama ithi keelakam
Om nama Hayagreevaya Shukla varnaya  Vidhyamoorthaye , jnanamoorthaye  ,omkarachyuthaya   brahma vidhya pradhaya   swaha.

 The seed is “Om  sreem(Hreem)  salutations to the God of words.”
The power is  “  Om kleem salutations to one who carries knowledge.”
The nail is  “Om Sou  salutations to the treasure house of Vedas.”
Om salutations to Hayagreeva  who is white coloured, who is the form of knowledge  , who is the form of wisdom  , Who is Achyutha with Om , God who gives knowledge of Brahman Swaha.
