    Radha, welcome to this forum !

    This is Vajra Kavacham:
    NaraayaNo(a)ham brahmaaham bhairavo(a)ham
    S(h)ivou(a)smyaham daevo(a)ham
    Paramaathmaaham mahaathripurasundaree
    Both hands are taken to the head, brought down to feet, taken again to the head, brought down & taken to the head a third time. Then stop. This is supposed to be a protection.
    Hope this helps.
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Shlokas for peaceful sleep at night:

    To dispel fear:
    1 - S(h)ankha chakra danurbhaaNaam dhaarayantheem thrilochanaam
    DoorvaadaLa nibhaam vandhae durgaam durgathi naas(h)ineem


    2 - Sarvaswaroopae,sarvaes(h)ae sarvas(h)akthi samanvithae
    Bhayaebhyasthraahi no daevi durgae daevi namo(a)sthuthae



    To prevent the fear of ills happening:

    3 - Sarvabaadhaa pras(h)amanam thrylokhyasyakhilaes(h)vari
    Aevamaeva thvayaa kaaryam asmadvairivinaas(h)anam


    To prevent bad dreams – to be chanted 3 times:

    Duhsvapna duhs(h)akuna durgathi dourmanasya
    Durbiksha durvyasana duhsaha duryas(h)aamsi
    Uthpaatha thaapa vishabheethi masadgrahaarthim
    Vyaadeems(h)cha naas(h)ayathu mae jagathaamathees(h)ah

    It is customary to chan Om namo Narayanaya when you wake up & Om namashivaya when you go to sleep. So after chanting the above 4, just chant Om namashivaya, repeatedly when you lie down.

    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    The most important shlokas in VishNu Sahasranamam

    The first 3 shlokas are very special in VishNu Sahasranamam:

    1 – Vis(h)vam vishNurvashatkaaro bhoothabhavya bhavath prabhuh
    Bhootha kr(u)d bhoothabhrudbhaavo bhoothaathmaa bhoothabhaavanah

    விச்(H)வம் விஷ்ணுர் வஷட்காரோ பூ(4)தப(4)வ்ய
    ப(4)வத் ப்ரபு(4):

    பூ(4)தக்ருத் பூ(4)தப்(4)ருத்(3) பா(4)வோ பூ)4)தாத்மா
    பூ(4)த பா(4)வன:


    This has 9 names –

    vis(h)vam
    vishNuh
    vashatkaarah
    bhoothabhavya bhavath prabhuh
    Bhootha kr(u)d
    Bhoothabhrud
    Bhaavah
    Bhoothaathmaa
    Bhoothabhaavanah

    2 – Poothaathmaa paramaathmaa cha mukthaanaam paramaa gathih
    Avyayah purushah saakshee kshaethrajno akshara aeva cha

    பூதாத்மா பரமாத்மா ச முக்தானாம் பரமா க(3)தி:
    அவ்யய: புருஷ: ஸாக்ஷீ க்ஷேத்ரக்ஞோ அக்ஷர ஏவ ச


    This has 8 names:

    Poothaathmaa
    Paramaathmaa
    mukthaanaam paramaa gathah
    Avyayah
    Purushah
    Saakshee
    Kshaethrajnah
    Akshara

    3 – Yogo yogavidaam naethaa pradhaanapurushaes(h)varah
    Naarasimhavapuh s(h)reemaan kes(h)avah purushoththamah

    யோகோ(3) யோக(3)விதா(3)ம் நேத: ப்ரதா(4)ன புருஷேச்(H)வர:
    நாரஸிம்ஹவபு: ஸ்ரீமான் கேச(H)வ: புருஷோத்தம:


    This has 7 names:

    Yogah
    yogavidaam naethaa h pradhaanapurushaes(h)varah
    Naarasimhavapuh
    s(h)reemaan
    s(h)reemaan
    purushoththamah

    There are 9 + 8 + 7 = 24 namaas.
    These are supposed to explain the 24 letters of Gayathri Mantra.
    So, chanting these first 3 shlokas is as sacred as reciting Gayathri Manthra.

    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Saraswathi slokam

    Mrs.C or anyone,

    I am looking for a sloka on Saraswathi which is like the shodashanama ganapati stotram.There are different names of Godess Saraswathi. During the Navarathri celebrations here in the temple, the priest asked us to repeat the names. I wanted to check with u if anyone knows.
    Thanks

    Also, Mrs. C,

    Made note of the Annapurni slokam. I am trying to learn the annapoornashtakam by heart. In the meantime, this is an excellent way to pray to Sri Annapoorneshwari.

    Thanks again.

    Death bed or KarNa Mantras.

    These shlokas are to be chanted in the right ear when a person’s end is very near, by his near and dear ones around him.

    The following is by Adi Shankara:

    Yadaa avarNayath karNamoolae
    Anthakaalae s(h)ivo raama raamaethi raamaethi kaas(h)yaam
    Thadaekam param thaarakam brahmaroopam
    Bhajae aham Bhajae aham Bhajae aham Bhajae aham

    A person attains liberation, if, on his death bed, those around him chant Rama nama and Shiva nama in his ears.

    The following is from Bhagavadgita – 18.66

    Sarvadharmaan parithyajya maamaekam s(h)araNam vraja
    Aham thvaa sarvapaapaebhyo mokshayishyaami maa s(h)uchah

    In this verse Krishna summarises the entire teachig of Gita thus:
    Abandoning dependence on all dharmas ( or on human efforts at moral and spritual upliftment), come to Me as the only Refuge. Grieve not; I will deliver you from all sins.

    This is the essence of the entire Gita, nay, the essence of the entire scriptural literature.

    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    thanks for another one..

    Dear Chitra,

    you bring around enlightenment with every post.
    a serious one this time.
    I also liked the simple vishnu namaas that you'd posted earlier.

    Love & regards,
