Rahu Kavacham

In Hindu mythology, Rahu is a snake that swallows the sun or the moon causing eclipses. He is depicted in art as a dragon with no body riding a chariot drawn by eight black horses. Rahu is one of the navagrahas (nine planets) in Vedic astrology. The Rahu kala is considered inauspicious. Astronomically, Rahu and Ketu denotes the two points of intersection of the paths of the Sun and the Moon as they move on the celestial sphere. Therefore, Rahu and Ketu are respectively called the north and the south lunar nodes. The Rahu Kavacham should be read by people in whose horoscope, the Rahu is not in a good position or the present position of Rahu causes problems.

|| Rahu Kavacham ||

Pranamami sada rahum,
soorpakaram kireetinam,
Saimhikeyam karalasyam,
lokanamabhaya pradham.

I always salute Rahu, who holds a winnow, who has a crown, Who is like a lion and is terrible looking, And who grants protection to people

Neelambara sira pathu,
lalatam loka vanditha,
Chakshushi pathu may Rahu,
srothre thwardha sareeravan.

Let my head be protected by he who wears blue silk, Let my forehead be protected by he who is worshipped by the world, Let Rahu protect my eyes and semi bodied one protect my ears.

Nasikam may dhoomravarna,
soolapanir mukham mama,
Jihwam may simhika sunu,
Kantam may katinamgrika.

Let the smoke colured one protect my nose, And let he who holds the spear protect my face, Let the son of Simhika protect my toungue, And let my neck be protected by he who perceives by smell.

Bhujangeso bhujai pathu,
neela malyambara karou pathu,
Pathu vaksha sthalam manthri,
pathu kuksheem vidhunthuda.

Let the lord of serpents protect my arm, Let my hands be protected by he who wears blue garlands, Let the minister protect my breast, And let the wise one protect my belly.

Katim may vikata pathu,
ooru may sura poojitha,
Swarbhanuni januni pathu
jange may pathu jadayaha.

Let my hip be protected by the funny one, Let my thighs be protected by he who is worshipped by devas, Let my knees be protected by him who makes the sun his own, Let my calves be protected by him who is sluggish.

Gulphou grahapathi pathu,
padhou may bheeshanakruthi,
Sarvanyangani may pathu
neela chandana bhooshana.

Let my ankle be protected by the lord of planets, Let my feet be protected by he who looks terrible, And let all my limbs be protected by him who wears blue sandal paste.

Raheridham kavacham
rhudhi davasthudham yo,
Bhakthya padathyunu
dinam niyatha suchi sanu,
Prapnothi keerthimathulam
sriyamrudhi maayura,
Aaroghya mathma vijayam
cha hi thath prasadath.

He who invests himself in this armour of Rahu, Daily reads it with devotion according to rules cleanly, Would get incomparable fame, plenty of wealth, long life, Health and great victory in life due to his blessings.

Ithi Sri Mahabharathe Drutharasthra
jayantha samvade drona parvani
rahu kavacham sampoornam,

Thus ends the armour of Rahu occurring in the middle of discussion between Drutharashtra and Jayantha which occurs in the chapter on Drona of the Mahabharatha epic.
