Dwaraka Shila in my possession
The Dwaraka Shilas are stones found near the sea at Dwaraka, one of the most holy places of India. They are rocks with marks of wheels (chakra) on them. It is recommended to worship the Salagrama with a Dwaraka Shila. A good Dwaraka sila should be white, round or square, unbroken and without holes, and with well formed chakras.
At Dwaraka, the place where the Gomati river meets the sea is known as Chakra Teertha. It is said that lord Vishnu manifested here in the form of Dwaraka Shila.
The famous Nageswar Jyotirlinga near Dwaraka is made of a large Dwaraka Sila.
The Brahma Purana states that wherever shalagrama-shila and Dwaraka sila sit together, there certainly mukti (salvation) also resides. In the conversation between Brahma and Narada in the Skanda Purana Brahma says, “O Munishvara! Wherever Dwaraka sila sits in front of the shalagrama-shila every class of opulence goes on increasing unlimitedly.” In another place it says that one who daily worships dvaraka-shila along with twelve shalagrama-shila will be honored even in Vaikuntha-dhama.
The Varaha Purana says that whoever touches a shila with the mark of a Vishnu-chakra will become free of all sins. The Garuda Purana declares that simply the darshana of Sudarshana and other Dwaraka sila fulfils all desires. The Skanda Purana declares that without a doubt if a very sinful man worships a Dwaraka sila with devotion, or even without devotion, he becomes free from all sinful reactions. According to the Dwaraka Mahatmya, a shila marked with chakras coming from Dvaraka is also called chakra-tirtha. Even if this shila is worshipped by a sinful person from a degraded country, the worships still becomes liberated.
The Kapila-pancaratra explains the benefits of worshiping different types of Dwaraka sila. That charming shila known as Sudarsana, which has one chakra on it, gives one liberation. . The Lakshmi-Narayana Dwaraka sila with two chakras gives opulence and liberation, and an Acyuta-shila with three chakras gives one respect equal to Lord Indra. The shila known as Caturbhuja with four cakras brings religion, economic development, enjoyment, and liberation. A Vasudeva-shila, Which has five chakras, will remove the fear of birth and death, and a Pradyumna-shila with six chakras will give one beauty and wealth. The one called Balabhadra-shila with seven cakras gives fame and a continuation of one’s dynasty, while a Purushottama-shila with eight chakras gives all types of benedictions. With nine chakras, a Narasimhadeva-shila gives the highest benefits, and a Dashavatara Dwaraka sila with ten chakras gives kingship. An Aniruddha-shila, which has eleven chakras, give fame and lordship, and the one known as Dvadasatmaka-shila with twelve chakras gives liberation and happiness
The Kapila-pancaratra also describes the bad results derived from worshiping certain types of Dwaraka sila. A black one gives death, a smoke colored one gives constant fear, a multi-colored one gives bad health and a blue coloured shila takes away one’s wealth. That Dwaraka-shila that has a hole passing through it brings poverty, a pale one gives terrible distress, and a broken shila brings separation from the wife. The white shila gives sons, grandsons, wealth, power, and all types of happiness, so this type of shila should be adored.
The Prahlada-samhita also says that a black shila causes death, reddish gives constant fear, multi-colored brings disease, yellow or smoke-coloured gives poverty, and a broken one causes death to the wife. Shilas with a hole, uneven chakras, triangular in shape, or half-moon shaped should never be worshiped. Garga and Galava Rishis have stated that a shila with uniform chakras brings happiness, a twelve chakra shila is very auspicious, and round and square shilas give happiness. But worshiping shilas that are broken, triangular, having holes, with uneven chakras, or half-moon shaped is fruitless.
