Translated by P. R.Ramachander

Text, Lyrics, Meaning, Translations of Stothras of Lord Vishnu, Purusha Suktam, Vishnu Sahasra Namam, Narayana Suktam, Achyuthashtakam, Dattatreya Stotram, Krishna Ashtakam, Mukunda Mala, Madhurashtakam, Nama Ramayana, Nrusimha Stotram, Vishnu Suktam
[Dattatreya is all the great trinity rolled in to one form. He is followed by the four Vedas in the form of dogs. There is a story that Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva wanted to test the chastity of Sadhvi Anasooya and requested her to serve them food in the nude. She made them in to babies and took them together. That is one story about the origin of Dathathreya. In the states of Karnataka and Maharashtra, there are large number of people who worship Dathathreya. It is belied Sage Samarth of Maharashtra was his incarnation. The following is datta's kavacha. If we recite this kavacha for 28 times for 49 days we will get Lord Dattatreya's darshan and our problems also get solved.]

Sri pada pathu may padhou, ooru sidhasana sthitha,
Paya digambharo guhyam nara hari pathu may Katim. 1

Let my feet be protected by Sri Pada,
Let he who sits o the throne of Sidhas protect my thigh,
Let him who clothes with the direction protect my private parts,
Let God Nara Simha protect my hip.

Nabhim pathu jagath srushto, dharam pathu dharodhara,
Krupalu pathu hrudayam, Shad bhuja pathu may Bhujou. 2

Let my stomach be protected by creator of the world,
Let my bone marrow be protected by he who bears the conch,
Let the kind hearted one protect my heart,
Let the six handed one protect my arms.

Skakkundi soola damaru sankha chakra dhara karam,
Pathu kantam Kambhu kante Sumukham pathu may Mukham. 3

Let him who holds pitcher, trident, drum, conch and wheel protect my arms,
Let my neck be protected by he who has a conch like neck,
Let the pleasant faced one protect my face.

Jihwam may Veda Vak pathu, nethrom may pathu divya druk,
Nasikam pathu gandathma, pathu punya srava sruthi. 4

Let he who talks Vedas protect my toungue,
Let my eyes be protected by the one with divine vision,
Let the soul of sandal protect my nose,
Let my ears be protected by he who has a blessed name.

Laltam pathu hamsathma, Sira pathu Jatadhara,
Karmendriyani Patveesa, Pathu jnanedrayan aaja. 5

Let the one whose soul is in high step of meditation protect my forehead,
Let my head be protected by the one who has matted hair,
Let my body parts to do action be protected by God,
Let my parts participating in intellect, be protected by he who is not born.

Sarvatharontha karanam prana may pathu Yogi raat,
Uparishta dadathyascha prashtatha parswathogratha. 6

Let the king of sages protect all types of my inside and soul,
And Over and above whatever is left as well what is near and in the front.

Anthar bahischa maam nithyam nana roopa dharovathu,
Varjitham kavechenovyath sthanam may Divya darsana. 7

Let him who can take any form protect daily what is inside and what is out,
And let the God with the divine vision protect whatever has been left out by this armour.

Rajatha shathrutho himsrath dushprayogadhitho gatha,
AAdhi vyathi bhaya aarthibhyo Dathathrya sadha avathu. 8

Let Dathathreya guard me from king, enemy,
Cruel people and those who misuse power,
As well as worry, disease, fear and greed.

Dhana Dhanya graham kshethra Sthri puthra pasu kinkaran,
Gnathimscha pathu may Nithya Anasuya Ananda Vardhana. 9

Let The god who increases the happiness of Anasuya,
Protect my money, grains, homr, field, wife, son, cattle and servants,
As well as all the members of my clan daily.

Bala unmatha pisachabho dhuvit sandhishu pathu maam,
Bhootha bouthika mruthyubhyo Hari pathu Digambara. 10

From powerful exuberant devils, bad paramours,let the saint protect me,
Let The Hari who dresses himself by the sky,
Protect the physical and spiritual aspects as well as death.

Ya yetha drutha kavacham sannahyath bhakthi bhavitha,
SArva anartha nirviktho Graha peeda vivarjitha. 11

He who wears this armour with the spirit of devotion,
Will get rid of all dangers as well as the problems caused by planets.

Bhootha pretha pisachadwaira devair apya parajitha,
Bhukthyathaa divyaan bhogan, sa dehanthe Thath padam vrujeth. 12

Devils, ghosts, bad wandering souls as well as gods with enmity would get defeated,
And they would enjoy divine pleasures and at the end they would reach you.

Ithi sri dhathreya kavacham.
Thus ends the armour of Dattatreya.
