REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

Garga Muni previously gave this mantra to the Vraja gopis. Herein, Sri Pradvipaka Muni speaks the same kavaca to Duryodhana.  After bathing and dressing in clean cotton garments, a person should sit on a kusa-grass mat, purify his hands with mantras, bow down, and with fixed intelligence meditate on Lord Krsna's elder brother, Lord Balarama while chanting this kavaca. This kavaca will ensure one fill protection against Maya, as stated in the Garga Samhita.
