Shaligram Original Stone
Shaligram Original Stone: Shaligram is a type of fossil stone, used to invoke God as the representative of God. Shaligram is usually collected from the bottom or banks of the holy river. Shiva devotees use an almost round or oval shaligram as the Shiva linga to perform the puja.
Vaishnavites (Hindus) use a spherical, usually black colored ammonoid fossil found in the sacred river Gandaki as a representative of Vishnu.
Shaligram is often called ‘Shila’. Shila is a short name for Shaligram which means “stone”. Shaligram is a less famous name of Vishnu. Evidence of the origin of this name comes from a remote village in Nepal, where Vishnu is also known as Shaligramam. Shaligram in Hinduism is known as Salagrama. Shaligram is also associated with a village called Salgram, which is located on the banks of the river called Gandaki and these sacred stones are also found from here.
According to Nidhi Ji Shrimali – There is an important place called Shaligram Sthal in a state of Gandaki i.e. Narayani river, the stone which comes out of it is called Shaligram. With the touch of Shaligrama rock, the sin of millions of births is destroyed. Then if he is worshiped, then what is there to say about its fruit, he is going to bring it near to God. By virtue of many births, if Sri Krishna Shila with the symbol of Gopadha is ever attained, then the worship of him ends the rebirth of man. One should first test Shaligram-sila, if it is black and smooth then it is good. Just as the fire hidden within the wood is always manifested by chanting, similarly Lord Vishnu is especially expressed in the Shaligrama rock even when it is spread everywhere. One who worships twelve Shaligram idols with the rock-cut Gomti cycle of Dwarka is revered in Vaikuntha folk.
Uses: In Hinduism, anthropomorphic religious idols are usually represented, although symbols are also used equally. In the form of Shaligram, the abstract form of God is represented on which humans can easily focus and as Lord Krishna has said in the Gita,
अव्यक्ता हि गतिर्दुःखं देहवद्भिरवाप्यते॥”
—Srimadbhagavad Gita, Chapter 12, Verse 5
The pure meaning is as follows: “For those whose minds are connected with the indirect, impersonal qualities of the divine, progress is very difficult. It is always difficult for a body with a body to progress in this discipline.”
