Kalika Kavacham Audio

Kalika Devi is the first Dasha MahaVidya. This Kavacham which requests protection from Kalika Devi is quite powerful and has a tantric base. It requests protection from all the enemies and requests Goddess Kalika Devi to essentially destroy enemies.

One must note however that the greatest enemies are within one’s own self. One should NOT use this shlokam to cause harm to anyone. Trying to cause harm to anyone will only backfire and destroy the person trying to cause harm. There is a great story in Markandeya Puranam to this effect. When the Devas were getting harmed by the asuras, they invoked Maha Kali to protect them from the asuras, so the Devas could continue their normal duty and Kalika Devi came to their rescue.

Kalika Devi will certainly help a devotee in spiritual advancement and get rid of hindrances along the way; that IS the purpose of this shlokam – to eliminate the inner asuras that come in the way of spiritual advancement.

I present now my vocal rendering of the above Kavacham which is 5 minutes 33 seconds long:
