Venkatesa Vajra Kavacham
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Narayanam Parabrahma, sarvakaarana kaaranam Prapadye Venkatesakhyaam, Tadeva kavacham mama., 1
I bow and salute that Venkatesa,
Who is lord Narayana himself,
Who is the divine Lord of all,
And who is the cause of all causes,
And chant his armour for myself.
Sahasra Seersha Purusho Venkatesassirovatu Pranesha Prananilayaha Pranan rakshatu mey Harihi., 2
Let my head be protected by,
Lord Venkatesa with thousand aspects,
Who is the lord of all souls,
And place where the soul merges.
Aakasaraat sutaanaatha Aatmanam me sadavatu Deva Devottamopayaad deham mey Venkateswaraha., 3
Let the Consort of the daughter of the sky,
May protect my soul always,
Let the body got from the lord of Lords,
Be protected by Lord Venkateswara.
Sarvatra sarvakaryeshu Mangambajanireeswaraha Palayenmam sada Karma saphalyam naha prayacchatu., 4
Let the soul like consort of Alamelu Manga.
Take care of all my works always,
And lead me to good results of all of them.
Ya Etad vajrakavacha mabhedyam Venkatesituhu Sayam Prataha patennityam mrutyum tarati nirbhyaha., 5
This diamond armour of Venkatesa,
which can never be broken,
If read daily in the evening and morn,
Would help one to cross death without fear.
