I used to read the Devi Kavacham from Saptashati daily but stopped as I was unaware of the rules and was not formally initiated into it. Are there any prescribed rules?
Also, can someone share the correct version? I notice a few variations in renditions and available material online.
If Devi Kavacham needs initiation, then is there any shloka or mantra from Durga Saptashati that can be read daily by a female devotee without initiation?
