Lalitha  moola manthra   Kavacham

Translated   by

P.R.Ramachander

 

(I have taken this Kavacham from http://www.bharatiweb.com/English/Lalitaa%20Moola%20Mantra%20Kavacham%20Eng%20v1.pdf

This Kavacha(Armour)  is based   on the moola manthra of  Goddess  Laitha   viz

Ka-aa-ee-la-hrim      (Vagbhava koota)

Ha –sa-ka –ha-la-hrim   (kama Raja koota)

Sa-ka –la-hrim      (Shakthi koota)

    The letters of Vagh bhava koota originate    from the Mooladhara  (baser instincts of man)  , The Kama  Raja Koota letters  . Each line  of this moola manthra is considered equivalent to  Gayathri  . Those interested may please see my introduction to Lalatha   Trishathi (http://www.hindupedia.com/en/Lalitha_Trishathi )
