Importance of Shaligram


In the Brahma Purana Lord Narayana says, O Brahma, I eternally reside in the form of Shaligrama-shila.

Gautamiya Tantra states that by merely touching a shaligrama-shila one becomes freed from the sins of millions of births.

The Yajnadhvaja chapter of the Brihan-naradiya Purana states that wherever Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila remains, demons, and other such beings will be unable to cause any disturbance.

Padma Purana states :

By worshiping Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama decorated with cakras, one constantly gains the merit of performing a thousand Rajasuya sacrifices Even sinful people with no qualification for performing pious activities will not see the abode of Yamaraja if they worship Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama.

By adoring Maha Vishnu in the chakra of a shaligrama, one receives the same benefit as performing the agnihotra sacrifice and giving the whole world with all its oceans in charity. The lowest of men covered by lust, anger, and greed will attain the highest abode of the Supreme Lord Hari by worshiping shaligrama. One who adores the shaligrama shila will never fall from the heavenly planets up to the end of the universe.

Even without serving holy places, giving in charity, doing sacrifices, or studying the scriptures, a person who simply worship a shalagrama-shila will still achieve mukti. By worshiping shaligrama shila, even a sinful person becomes free from the fear of residence in the lowest hell and being reborn as an insect or animal.

In Kali-yuga, if a devotee with a surrendered and loving mood offers a bath, flowers, lamps, food, prayers, and kirtana with sweet music for the transcendental pleasure of his shaligrama shila, he will eternally enjoy sublime spiritual happiness in the association of the Supreme Lord Hari. Merely by worshiping Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila, a person gets the same benefit as seeing or adoring thousands of shiva-lingas.

Wherever Lord Keshava dwells as shaligrama shila, all the gods, demons, yaksas, and fourteen worlds are also present there. A shraddha ceremony done in front of shaligrama shila will satisfy many generations of forefathers and grant them residence in deva-loka for hundreds of days of Brahma.

The area within a radius of twenty-four miles from where a shaligrama shila is worshiped as Maha Vishnu is counted as a holy place. The fruits of japa, charity, sacrifices, or any other religious activities done in that area will be multiplied millions of times. If someone dies within a radius of two miles of a shaligrama-shila, though a lowborn man from a sinful place, he will go straight to Vaikuntha. Giving a shaligrama shila is the best form of charity, equal to the result of donating the entire earth together with its forests, mountains, and all.
Skanda Purana-

In the Kartika Mahatmya of the Skanda Purana Lord Shiva tells his son Kartikeya The entire three worlds along with their moving and non-moving beings, reside always with me in shaligrama shila. One who sees, bathes, worships, or offers obeisances to the Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila will receive the same piety as doing millions of sacrifices and giving millions of cows in charity.

Even if a person full of lusty desires or without any bhakti-bhava worships Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila, he will still receive the mercy of the Lord. One who simply remembers, worships, meditates upon, does kirtana before, or pays obeisances to shalagrama-shila, will become free from all sins even the sins of killing millions of people. As the rising sun dispels darkness, so too the shaligrama shila removes all sins from the devotee who simply offers him obeisances.

Even if a person lusty or angry by nature worships Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila with devotion, or even carelessly, he will get liberation. The fruit of worshiping me with hundreds of millions of lotus flowers will be multiplied millions of times if one offer the same worship Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila.

I do not accept the worship or prayers of one who neglects the puja of shaligrama shila. The result of one who adores Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila will last for seventy-one yugas. O son, one who never worship Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila is not considered a devotee of Vishnu. Even if someone worships hundreds of shiva-lingas, he will still not receive any benefit from it.

The forefathers of one who performs pinda-dana even in front of a shaligrama shila will enjoy boundless satisfaction. Without having accumulated pious activities, it as very difficult to find a shaligrama-shila in this world, especially in the age of Kali-yuga. When one worships a Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila with controlled senses and in a devotional mood, each flower offered is equal to the performance of an ashvamedha sacrifice.

lndeed, whether at an auspicious or inauspicious time, either with or even without devotion, if a shaligrama shila is worshiped. Worship of Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila brings the same result as devoutly giving sixty-four tolas of sesame seeds daily in charity. My dear son, by offering leaves, flowers fruits, roots, water, grass, and rice to the shalagrama-shila, one receives a boon as great as Mount Sumeru.

Even if someone adores Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila without proper method, mudras, or mantras, he will still get the full result according to the shastras. By worship of Maha Vishnu in the form of shaligrama shila in Mathura during the Kartika month, Lord Hari grants moksha
