Sri Baneshvara Samsarapavana Kavacham – Sri Bharamavaivarththa Puranam – Lyrics and meanings



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||











The sacred armor of Lord Shiva was heard by Shaunaka, Sage Vashishta narrated to Gandharva and Manu who worshiped supreme  Lord Shiva, which was later narrated on the sacred land of Pushakara by Sage Vashishta, further it was narrated to Ravana by Bhramin, then Bana who is the manifestation of Shambhu narrated to  Sage Dhurvassa, recitation of this sacred armor which is equivalent to Veda on regular basis and offerings to Lord Shiva would bring abundance of meritorious reward to the worshiper.

Bana speaks “ Oh! Maheshvara/mighty Lord, Oh! Mahabhaga/illustrious, highly fortunate, pure, most venerable, kindly narrate the sacred armor, which has highest of the purification effects on Samsara, which is known as Samsarapavanam, Oh! Prabho, kindly narrate to me.”

Maheshvara speaks “Oh! Vathsa/son, I shall narrate the highly propitious and marvelous hymns of Samsarapavanam, listen to me carefully, it is one of the very rare verses among the superior hymns and has been highly confidential till date, previously it was narrated to Durvassa by me, and he attained victory in the three worlds after wearing this sacred armor, Samsarapavana Kavacham is  highly propitious which brings immense victory, it has Prajapathi as  Rishi, Gayathri as Chandhass, presiding deity is Maheshvara, it is recited to attain Dharma/righteousness, Arththa/wealth, Kama/desires and Moksha/liberation from repeated births.  The recitation of this sacred armor on Panchalaksha/five lakhs times would bring supreme brilliance, extreme proficiency in Siddhi, Yoga, Thapas,  and valor, and the worhiper remain equivalent to me. I shall earnestly pray to Shambhu who is benevolent, kindly protect my head, I shall earnestly pray to Maheshvara who is mighty Lord, kindly protect my face,  I shall earnestly pray to Neelakanda who has bluish throat, kindly protect my line of teeth, I shall earnestly pray to Hara who eradicates sins of the worshiper, kindly protect by lips, I shall earnestly pray to  Chandhrachooda who is adorned in crescent moon on matted hair locks, kindly protect my throat, I shall earnestly pray to Vrishabhavahana who is mounted on the celestial bull, kindly protect back of my shoulders, I shall earnestly pray to Neelakanda who has bluish throat, kindly protect my chest, I shall earnestly pray to  Digambara who is attired in directions as clothe, kindly protect my back portion, I shall earnestly pray to  Vishvesha who is the Lord of Universe and its living beings, kindly protect all the limbs, I shall earnestly pray to Sarvadhikshu who is Universal preceptor, kindly protect me always, these are the glorious verses of Banakavacham which was remained confidential all these days, whoever reads or listens to it would attain the meritorious reward of taking holy dip in all the sacred rivers and whoever wear this sacred armor with intense faith and devotion would attain the same merit, whoever reads or listens to it for Shathalaksh/hundred and lakh times would attain Manthrasiddhi.”
