Shree Hanuman Kavach is considered the God of strength and power and is worshiped by millions of devotees every Tuesday. It correctly energized by prayer and meditation is the protective shield, which will protect the wearer against all perils and evils.
This potent Kavacham is addressed to this fierce form of Lord Hanuman. Lord Hanuman is worshiped as a subsidiary figure in temples dedicated to Lord Rama or directly in shrines dedicated to Hanuman himself. He is probably one of the most revered, adored and celebrated figures in the Hindu tradition.
Some people consider that this sloka should not be recited but used to adore and worship the five faced Hanuman. It is written at the end of the stotra that it was taught by Lord Rama to Sita as per her request. But the first few lines show that this is a version was taught by Garuda (the mount of the Vishnu), where he mentions that it was created by the Lord of lords.
