Hayagriva Kavacham Text

 

॥ अथ श्री हयग्रीवकवचम् ॥


पार्वत्युवाच ।
देवदेव महादेव करुणाकर शङ्कर ।
त्वया प्रसादशीलेन कथितानि रमापतेः ॥ 

बहूनामवताराणां बहूनि कवचानि च ।
इदानीं श्रोतुमिच्छामि हयास्यकवचं प्रभो ॥ 

 

Parvathyuvacha:-
Goddess Parvathi asked :-

Deva deva Mahadeva, Karunakara  Sankara,
Thwayaa prasada seelena kadhithaani ramapathe,
Bahunaam avatharaanaam bahooni kavachani cha,
Idhanim srothumichami hyasya kavacham Prabhoo.

 

Oh God, Oh God , Oh great God, Oh Sankara who is merciful,
Sue to your grace I have heard from you prayers ,
Addressed several incarnations and several armours of Lord Vishnu,
And now I would like to hear from you, the armour of the horse headed Hayagreeva.

 

शङ्कर उवाच ।
देवि प्रियंवदे तुभ्यं रहस्यमपि तत्प्रिये ।
कलशाबुधिपीयूष हयास्यकवचं वदे ॥ 

 

Shiva Uvacha:
Lord Shiva  told:

Devi priye thubhyam rahasyamapi  mathpriye,
Kalasaa ambhoodhi peeyusham hayasya kavacham Vadhe.

 

Oh Goddess since you are my love, I will tell you ,
The secret armour of Hayagreeva which is ,
Like the nectar that was churned out from the ocean.

 

महाकल्पान्तयामिन्याश्चरमप्रहरे स्वयम् ।
लीलया हयवक्त्रोत्थं रूपमाधाय योऽरमत् ॥

 

Maha kalpantha taminyaam sancharamsthu Hari swayam,
Leelaayaa Haya Vakthaakhyaa roopamasadhya yo aharath.

 

Lord Vishnu himself travelled at the night of the great deluge,
And playfully assumed a form with horse’s head and killed ,
The Asura called Hayagreeva who had stolen the Vedas.

 

पुत्रवान्स ततो मह्यं विरञ्चिरुपदिष्टवान् ।
हयास्यकवचस्यास्य ऋषिर्ब्रह्मा प्रकीर्तितः ।

 

Putha vathsalyatho mahyam virinchi roopamadishtavaan,
Hayaasya kavachasyasya Rishir Brahma Prakeerthitha.

 

This was taught by Lord Brahma to me due to the affection for his son,
And it has been told that the sage of this Hayagreeva armour is Lord Brahma.

 

छन्दोऽनुष्टुप् तथा देवो हयग्रीव उदाहृतः ॥ 

ह्रौं तु बीजं समाख्यातं ह्रीं शक्तिः समुदाहृता ।
ॐ कीलकं समाख्यातमुच्चैरुत् कीलकं तथा ॥

 

Chando anushtup thadhaa devo Hayagreeva udahruthaa,
Hroum Beejam thu samakhyaatham hreem sakthi samudahruthaa,
Om Keelakam samakhyaatha uchairuth kjeelakam Thathaa

 

The meter for this is Anushtup and the God addressed is Hayagreeva,
The seed is “Hroum”. Hreem is the power, Om is the nail ,
And telling loudly it is told as Uthkeelakam.

 

लक्ष्मीकराम्भोरुहहेम कुंभपीयूष पूरैरभिषिक्तशीर्षम् ।
व्याख्यानमालांबुजपुस्तकानि हस्तैर्वहन्तं हयतुण्डमीडे ॥

 

Lakshmi karomburuha hema Kumbha peeyusha poorer abhishiktha seersham,
Vyakhyaa aksha malambuja pusthakaani hasthair vahantham haya thunda meede.

 

I am praying that Hayagreeva whose head is anointed by the nectar,
Falling from the golden pot held in the lotus like hands of Lakshmi,
And who shows divine sign and holds rosary, lotus flower and book in his hands.

 

सुधासिक्तः शिरः पातु भालं पातु शशिप्रभः ।
दृशौ रक्षतु दैत्यारिर्नासां वोद्धृतवारिधिः ॥

 

Sudha siktha sisira pathu phalam pathu Sasi Prabha,
Drusou rakshathu daithyaari nasaam vagjrumbha varanidhi.

 

Let the nectar drenched God  protect my head,
Let Him who has a moon like forehead   protect my head,
Let him who is the enemy of Asuras protect my eyes,
Let him whose words flow like ocean protect my nose ,

 

श्रोत्रं पातु स्थिरश्रोत्रः कपोलौ करुणानिधिः ।
मुखं पातु गिरां स्वामी जिह्वां पातु सुरारिहृत् ॥

 

Srothram pathu sthirasrothra, kapolou karuna nidhi,
Mukham pathu giraam swami, jihwaam pathu surarihruth.

 

Let him who has very stable ears protect my ears,
Let ocean of mercy protect my cheeks,
Let the lord of spoken word protect my face ,
And let him who destroys the enemies of devas protect my tongue.

 

हनुं हनुमता सेव्यः कण्ठं वैकुण्डनायकः ।
ग्रीवा पातु हयग्रीवो हृदयं कमलालयः ॥

 

Hanum Hanumatha sevya, Kandam Vaikunda nayaka,
Greevaam pathu Hayagreeva, Hrudayam Kamala kara.

 

Let the Lord served by Hanuman protect my jaw,
Let the lord of Vaikunda protect my joints,
Let my neck be protected by neck,
Let my heart be protected by he in whom Lakshmi stays.

 

ऊर्ध्वं च विश्वभृत्पातु नाभिं पङ्कजलोचनः ।
मेढ्रं प्रजापतिः पातु ऊरू पातु गदाधरः ॥

 

Udaram viswabruth pathu, nabhim pankaja lochana ,
Medram prajapathi pathu, ooru pathu gadhadhara.

 

Let he who carries the earth protect the abdomen,
Let he who has lotus like eyes protect his belly,
Let my private parts be protected by lord of all people,
Let he who holds the mace protect my knees.

 

जानुनी विश्वहृत् पातु जङ्घे तु जगतां पतिः ।
गुल्फौ पातु हयध्वंसी पादौ विज्ञानवारिधिः ॥

 

Januni Viswabruth pathu, Jange cha jagathaam pathi,
Gulphou pathu hayadwamsi, Padhou vijnana varidhi.

 

Let him who lifts the earth protect my thighs ,
Let the lord of the universe protect my shanks,
Let my ankles be protected by the killer of the horse ,
Let my feet be protected by the ocean of wisdom.

 

प्राच्यां रक्षतु वागीशो दक्षिणायां वरायुधः ।
प्रतीच्यां विश्वभृत् पातु कौबेर्यां शिववन्दितः ॥ 

 

Prachyam rakshathu Vagesa, dakshinasyaam varayudha,
Pratheechyaam Viswabruth pathu, udeechyam shiva vanditha.

 

Let my east be protected by the God of words,
Let my south be protected by he who has divine weapons,
Let the west be protected by him who lifts the universe,
Let the north be protected by him who is saluted by Lord Shiva.

 

ऊर्ध्वं पातु हरिः साक्षादधः पातु गुणाकरः ।
अन्तरिक्षे हरिः पातु विश्वतः पातु विश्वधृक् ॥

 

Oordhwam pathu Hari Sakshad, Adha pathu gunaakara,
Anthareekshe Hari pathu, Viswatha pathu viswasrut.

 

Let the real Hari protect  the above direction,
Let him who is store house of good qualities protect the direction below,
Let the environment be protected by Lord Hari,
Let the universe be protected by he who created the world.

 

पुराणं कवचं धीमान् संनह्येन्निजविग्रहे ।
दुर्गतिवाक् शरव्यूहैः स कदाचिन्न बाध्यते ॥

 

Ya yethath kavacham dheemaan sannahyo nija vigrahe,
Dhoorvaathi Rakshasa vyoohai sa kadachith badyathe.

 

If a wise man reads this armour touching different,
Parts of his body , he would never get troubled by ,
People who unnecessarily argue nor by crowd of Rakshasas 

 

जपेद्य एतत्कवचं त्रिसन्ध्यं भक्तिभावतः ।
मूढोऽपि गीष्पतिस्पर्द्धी जायते नात्र संशयः ॥

 

Padeth yethath kavacham trisandhyam Bhakthi bhaavitha ,
Moodopi geeshpathispardhi jayathe naathra samsaya.

 

If one who reads this at dawn, noon and dusk with great devotion,

Even if by nature he is a fool, without any doubt, he would equal the teacher of devas.

 

इति श्रीहयग्रीवसंहितायां हयग्रीवकवचम् सम्पूर्णम् ॥
