DEVI KAWACHAM
THE DIVINE ARMOUR

Devi kawacham comes from the famous Durga Saptashati. Kawach literally means an armour. The recitation of Devi kawacham gives the seeker a special armour which acts as a protection against many things, may be natural or supernatural. But there are special indications to it's recitation. 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Devi kawacham retreat is a three day retreat, conducted both offline and online where we explore the divine mother as described in the Saptashati and her armour that is Divine kawacham.

WHAT DO WE LEARN

  • Recitation of Devi kawacham in Sanskrit

  • Directions of its chant

  • The types of dangers it protects us from

  • the ways of protection through the kawacham

PRELIMINARIES

Devi Durga comes under the Rajasik form, the same rules as required to be followed for Satwik dieties are to be continued. Strict prohibition of onion, garlic, non-veg, alchohol and tobacco. Red colour is best suited for Devi Durga but Yellow and Orange colour will also suffice.

WHEN IS THE RETREAT
