Shaaligraama is a form of Lord Vishnu. It is essential to keep it on the auspicious occasions of Poojas and Yajnas, etc. This idol of Lord Vishnu is very rare and is found only in the river Gandaki in India. It enhances the prosperity of a man and makes him inclined towards religious acts and performances if he establishes it in his house. He, who worships this idol daily, gets rid of sins committed in his previous birth.
Mantra: Om Namah Shivaaya.
