Krishna evam Trilokya vijayam nama Kavacham
(Here is a very remarkable Kavacham addressed to Lord Krishna. According to the reference I have it was told by Lord Narayana to sage Narada at his request as told by Lord Shiva to sage Parasurama. Normally in Kavachams , different names of the same God are requested to protect our different parts .But in this Kavacham thBits of Manthra like “Krishnaya Nama” , “Krishanya Swaha” are requested to do the same protection. In http://hinduphilosophypuranas.blogspot.in/2012/12/the-essence-of-puranas-brahmanda-purana_5321.html it is told that this Kavacham was taught by sage Vasishta and the text appears to have lot of differences. The mention of Goloka indicates that it indeed is a part of Brahma Vaivartha purana, http://stotram.co.in/krishna-kavacham-trailokya-vijaya-kavacham/ gives the Kavacham in various scripts including Sanskrit and Tamil )
