Lalita Moola Manthra Kavacham

Lalita Moola Manthra Kavacham
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[I have taken this Kavacham from This Kavacha (Armour) is based on the moola manthra of Goddess Laitha viz., Ka-aa-ee-la-hrim (Vagh Bhava Koota), Ha-sa-ka-ha-la-hrim (Kama Raja Koota) and 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 Lalitha Trishathi.]

Sri vidyaam paripoorna meru sikhare bindu trikone stithaam

I salute the Srividya who exists in the dot triangle at the head of the complete Meru,
Who is the mother of Brahma and all other beings, who bestows power to Lord Shiva,
Who is Kamakshi, the ocean of mercy, who exists in the body of Lord Shiva,
Who is the divine goddess of Kamakoti peeta and is the Brahma Vidhya.
