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 )
