salagrama silayantu, saksat sri krsna sevanam, nityam sannihitastatra, vasudevo jagadguruh.
When the salagrama-sila is worshiped, it should be understood that Lord Sri Krsna is being directly worshiped. Vasudeva, the original spiritual master of the universe, eternally resides in the salagrama-sila.
Salagrama silasparsat, koti janmagha nasanam, kim punaryajanam tatra, hari sannidhya karakam
Simply by touching the salagrama-sila, all one’s sinful reactions accumulated since millions of lifetimes are destroyed. What then can be said of those who worship the salagrama-sila? They certainly attain Lord Hari’s association.
The glories of salagrama-sila are well known among vaisnavas and brahmanas. Lord Krsna is non-different from His holy name and His deity form. Salagrama-sila is also the form of the Supreme Lord. As there is a need to invoke life or the Supreme Lord within the deity form at the time of installation, there is no need to formally install salagrama-sila. Salagrama-sila is directly the supreme personality of Godhead. Like the worship of the deity form, the worship of salagrama-sila should be performed very strictly with faith and devotion. All the duly initiated vaisnava – brahmanas are qualified to worship salagrama-sila.
