Sri Maha Sudarshan Kavach is the Prime Protective Kavach alongside our other prime Kavachas. The Sudarshan refers to the discus of Lord Vishnu, weapon to repel and punish evil and it is constructed from the pure flames of the Lord Sun. It is a Kavach in that the construction represents a whirling wheel of sacred flame that keeps all negativity, illness, misfortune and so on at bay.

Within the body of the Kavach are inscribed sacred bija mantras or seed syllables that have proven their efficacy as protective talismans. When worshipping this Kavach, the devotee visualizes himself being in the center of this sacred circle of sun-fire, secure and protected from all harm and ill that might befall him.

This Yantra Kavach is the Prime Protective Yantra alongside the our Dusmahavidya and Aghoreshwar Kavach. The Vedas inform us of the Sudarshan Cakra, a manifestation of the Lord's spiritual potency which acts in different capacities according to the Lord's desire. Generally the Sudarshan Cakra appears as a weapon like a discus with a razor sharp edge that may also exhibit intolerable heat.

In his prayers to the Sudarshan Cakra, Ambarisa Maharaja said, "O master of speech, by your effulgence, full of religious principles, the darkness of the world is dissipated, and the knowledge of learned persons or great souls is manifested. Indeed, no one can surpass your effulgence, for all things, manifested and unmanifested, gross and subtle, superior and inferior, are but various forms of you that are manifested by your effulgence." One of the functions of the Sudarshan Cakra is to chastise the demons, but another is to uplift the consciousness of the living beings.
