Durga Kavach is a powerful compilation of special Hindu shlokas from the Markandey Purana.

Practicing Durga Kavach with sincere devotion during the Navratras is considered beneficial by the devotees of Goddess Durga.

The word Durga itself is representative of the Goddess‘ benevolence and power.

The letter D represents the destruction of asuras (demons) and demonic forces. The letter U represents the elimination of problems and hindrances. Moreover, the letter R represents freedom from illness. The letter G represents salvation from negative actions. And finally, the letter A represents freedom from enemies and fear.
