Vedic Banishing and Protection Technique

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Sri Guru Parampara and all devotees everywhere!

Due to recent events, I put together this ritual to be used for psychic protection, to banish negative entities and energies, and can also simply be used to create a sacred space around you. It uses the Nityananda, Gauranga, and Hare Krishna mantras, as well as parts of the Nrisingha Kavacha. This ritual can be done anywhere at any time that you may feel like there is negative or evil energies around you that need exorcised, or if you're under psychic attack, or even just to ground and center yourself and create a sacred space around you. I've used the verses and translations from the Nrisingha Kavacha as found in the amazing book by Stephen Knapp called "Prayers, Mantras, and Gayatris", which is an awesome compilation of Vedic knowledge and wisdom that I highly recommend. 

Vedic Banishing Ritual

Stand with your feet together and touch your lips with the pointer finger of your right hand, making the Sign of Silence. Then sweep your arm down and out, ending by pointing to your right. While doing this, vibrate:
Apayati sakhya vinapata asuras! (Away all evil demons!)

Now touch your Crown Chakra using the Achamaniya mudra. Feel it vibrating with Divine energy. With your fingers, draw that energy down into your 3rd Eye, and vibrate: OM

Now draw the energy down through your body with your fingers, activating all the Chakras, ending with your finger pointing at the ground and visualize the energy flowing down from your Root Chakra, creating a line of energy that goes down into the Earth. Once it’s flowed down, then vibrate: OM

Visualize the Earth energy flowing up through the connection and into your Root Chakra. Draw the Earth energy up through your Chakras with your fingers and briefly touch your Heart Chakra. Draw the energy to your right shoulder and visualize the energy shooting out of your shoulder and off into Space and vibrate: Nityananda

Visualize the energy from Space flowing into your right shoulder, draw it across to your left shoulder and visualize it shooting out in that direction, vibrate: Gauranga

Visualize the Space energy flowing into your left shoulder, draw it back to your Heart Chakra and put your hands into the namaskar position and vibrate:
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

Go to the east, visualize the Sudarshana Chakra on your forehead,fling it forth with the Achamaniya mudra, chanting: Gauranga


Go to the south, repeat the above, chanting: Krishna


Go to west, repeat, chanting: Nityananda


Go to north, repeat, chanting: Balarama


Return to east. Keep your hands in the namaskar position and visualize a sphere of energy expanding out from your Solar Plexus Chakra to form a huge sphere all around you. You can expand it to any size necessary for your immediate needs. Once you have expanded this sphere of protective energy out all around you, chant the following verses from the Nrsingha Kavacha:

mahograh purvatah patu
maha-viragrajo ‘ghnitaha
maha-vishnur dakshine tu
maha-jvalas tu nairritaha

pashchime patu sarvesho
dishi me sarvatomukhaha
nrisimhah patu vayavyam
saumyam bhushana-vigrahaha

ishanyam patu bhadro me
sarva-mangala-dayakaha
samsara-bhayatah patu
mrityor mrityur nrikeshari

The translation of these 3 verses is: 
‘May that most ferocious personality protect me from the east. May He who is superior to the greatest heroes protect me from the southeast, which is presided over by Agni. May the Supreme Vishnu protect me from the south, and may that person of blazing luster protect me from the southwest. May the Lord of everything protect me from the west. His faces are everywhere, so please may He protect me from this direction. May Lord Nrisingha protect me from the northwest, which is predominated by Vayu, and may He whose form is in itself the supreme ornament protect me from the north, where Soma resides. May the all-auspicious Lord, who Himself bestows all-auspiciousness, protect me from the northeast, the direction of the sun-god, and may He who is death personified protect me from fear of the rotation of birth and death in this material world.’

Now extend your arms out to the side, forming a cross with your body and chant the following verse:

garjantam garjayantam nija-bhuja-patalam sphotayantam hatantam
rupyantam tapayantam divi bhuvi ditiyam kshepayantam kshipantam
krandantam roshayantam dishi dishi satantam samharantam bharantam
vikshantam purnayantam kara-nikara-shatair divya- simham namami

Translation: ‘Lord Nrisingha roars loudly and causes others to roar. With His multitudes of arms He tears the demons asunder and kills them in this way. He is always seeking out and tormenting the demonic descendants of Diti, both on this earth planet and in the higher planets, and He throws them down and scatters them. He cries with great anger as He destroys the demons in all directions, yet with His unlimited hands He sustains, protects, and nourishes the cosmic manifestation. I offer my respectful obeisances to the Lord, who has assumed the form of a transcendental lion.’
