Yagnavalkya said:-

 

1.Srunushwa muni sardhoola , Suryasya kavacham shubham,

SAreerarogyadham  divyam  , sarva saubaghya dhayakam

 

Please hear oh lion among sages, the holy armour addressed  to  Sun god,

Which improves health of the body , is divine   and one which grants all  types of luck.

 

2.DEdheepyamana makutam , sphuran makara  kundalam,

Dhyathwaa  sahasra kiranam , stotram methad  udheerayeth.

 

After  meditating  on the shining  god adorned  with a crown,

And shining with fish like ear studs, this prayer to the thousand rayed God should be recited.

 

3.Siro may Bhaskara pathu, lalatam  may amitha dhyuthi,

Nethre  Dhinamani pathu sravane vasareswara.

 

Let the God of light protect my head  and let god with great brilliance  protect my forehead,

Let the gem of the day protect my eyes  and let God of the day protect my ears.

 

4.Granam dharma gruni  pathu , vadanam veda vahana,

JIhwaa may manadha  pathu , kandam may Suravanditha

 

Let my nose be protected by protector of Dharma 

And let my face be protected by he who rides on Vedas,

Let my toungue be protected  by destroyer of pride

And let my neck be protected by he who is saluted by devas.

 

5.Skandho Prabakara  pathu , vaksha pathu janapriya,

Pathu padhou dwadasathma , sarvangam  sakaleswara,

 

Let the maker  of light  protect my five object of senses,

Let the  darling of the people protect   my chest,

Let the gosd with twelve souls protect my feet,

And let all my body parts be protected by god of all.

 

6.Surya rakshathmakam  stotram likhithwa, burja pathrake,

Dadhaathi  yak are thasya  vasagaa sarva sidhaya.

 

If this prayer of protection of sun god is written in Burja leaves ,

And given to someone, he would be under your control 

And you would become an expert on occult powers.

 

7.Susnatho ya japeth , samyagyo adheethe swastha  manasa,

Sa roga muktho , deergaayu , sukham pushtim  cha vindathi.

 

If this is read by one who is purified after  performing his rituals,

From the beginning he will have a peaceful mind without worries,

Free of disease, long lived and lead a like of pleasure and health.

 

                  Ithi  Srimad  Yagnavalkya muni  virachitham,

                     Surya kavacha   stotram sampoornam

 

                       Thus ends   the armour  of Sun god,

                             Written by sage Yagnavalkya.
