About Shaligram


Shaligram, the only self incarnated god in Kali Yuga, found in northern parts of Nepal on the banks of Gandakiriver. We have to spend several days to search saligram and reach Gandakiriver as well. Our mission is to provide devotees best saligram as SaligramStrotram suggest. We are dealing in Saligram from many years and gain knowledge and experience to choose saligram and name them according to the ancient scripture.

Mostly shaligram are black stone, which is found in the Gandaki River only. Sometimes we find reddish black, blue black or yellowish color saligram which is considered to be very rare among those reddish color. Saligram is not worshipped in houses because it is said ir raises tension and anxiety.

Blue-black saligram increase peace and harmony in the family where yellowish saligram increase wealth and prosperity. It is said there are so many symbols of saligram equal to Lord Vishnu’s sev eral names. Different symbols and Chakra formation is not by nature, it is made by the river worms called Vajra-Keeta. It’s teeth/ nails are said to be harder than granite stone. The Chakra formation is found not only on the outer surface of the Saligram. There are Chakras inside Saligram also. This can be seen through the hole or holes on the Saligram with the aid of torchlight. The holes are termed as vadana (mouth). Chakras can be seen inside these holes. The Vajra keeta worms drills the stone, get inside and live there. During their stay inside the tones, they cause these Chakras. Similarly, outside the worm also causes Chakras only. Saligram are used as living place by the worm not uses as shells.

The Puranic declaration is that the Lord himself causes these Chakras in the guise of worms. He reveals his presence in Saligram through the Chakras. Because he is already present there by his own choice, we do not perform any pratishta-ritual for Saligram just as we do for other idols. In the 18 Purans, a good number of them, under different contexts, proclaim the Mahima of Saligram as Vishnu pooja. The size recommended for the puja in the house is the smaller ones, which can be accommodated, in the closed fit. Big size saligrams are to be kept in the Temples/Muths etc.
