Krishna evam Trilokya vijayam nama Kavacham



Krishna  evam Trilokya  vijayam nama  Kavacham

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(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 )


Narada Uvacha:-
Narada said:-

About the very wonderful armour called    victory over the three  worlds.

Trilokya vijaya  syssya kalaam   narhanthi shodasim,

50-51 Performing thousand Raja sooyasd, one hundred  Vajapeyas,
Aswamedha sacrifice  , Nara medha sacrifice ,
Going around the world , giving  great charity ,
Would  not be equal to chanting  Trilokya vijaya   sixteen times.

52.Vrutho upaavasa  niyamam swadhyadhyayanam   thapa ,
Snanam   cha   sarva theertheeshu   naasyaarhanthiu  kalamapi

52, The chanting of the armour    would be much more greater ,
Than  performing penance, starving  according to rules  and onself learning Vedas.

53.Sidhathwam amarathwam   cha   dasathwam sri Harer  api,
Syadhi  syathsidha kavacha  sarva  prapnothi  nischitham,.

53.Even  getting power  or  position of Deva or position of servent of Hari,
Would be less effective   than  chanting of the armour  ,
AS definitely    you would   achieve  all that you want.

54.Idham  Kavacha majnathwa bhajeth  Krishnam sumandadhi,
Kptikalpam  prajaptho aapi  manthra  sidhi dhayaka

54.If this armour is chanted   without understanding and is used  to worship Krishna,
In a very slow manner  , even one crore repetition   will not give you mastery of the  Manthra.

55.Rajyam   dheyam  , siro dheyam , prana deyascha  puthraka ,
Evam bhootham   cha kavacham  na dheyam prana sankate.

55.The Son may perhaps  give  kingdom   , his head or even his soul  ,
But he would not give up  his past   or this armour when he is in great trouble.


Ithi   sri Brahma vaivarthe  maha purane   tritheeye  Ganapathi Khande ,
Narada  -Narayana  samvadhe  Parasuramaya   Sri Krishna Kavacham

This is the armour of Krishna   by Parasurama  occurring in the discussion ,
Between Narada  and Narayana  in the  third book of Ganapathi  ,
Which  occurs in Brahma  Vaivartha  Maha Purana.

What is the meaning of "understanding" in respect to this paragraph. Does it mean the meaning of words or something deep???

I don't have a guru can I recite this kavacham ???

Please understand the meaning and chant it .You need not have a Guru .Keep an image of Lord Krishna before you, keep the print out of the stotra before the image , assume he is your Guru and then start chanting it.
