Introduction

There are a few aspects that are considered absolutely essential for leading a decent and respectable life in the world. Intelligence, education, knowledge, good health and wealth can be said to be prime among them.

This sloka is Hayagreeva Kavacham, which remains a prayer for a href="https://www.astroved.com/us/specials/hayagriva-jayanthi">Lord Hayagriva. He is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who is said to have taken this strange form for protecting the Vedas, the sacred texts and thus, ensuring the continuation of the fundamental act of creation of the universe. Hayagreeva has a unique form, that of a human being with the face of a horse. Once, the mighty demons Madhu and Kaitabha stole away the holy Vedas, which were very essential for creating the universe and its beings and hid them under the sea bed. Thereupon, Vishnu took the form of Hayagreeva, the Man-Horse, fought a tough battle with the powerful demons and annihilated them in the end. He thus retrieved the Vedas and restored them safely to the God of creation, for him to continue his activity creation without any impediment. Lord Hayagreeva is said to be an embodiment of intelligence and wisdom.

It is believed that this Kavacham will act as a protective shield against impediments and help to bestow various benefits like education, knowledge, skills and wealth.
