These Saligramas are collected by the villagers and brought to us from the Gandaki River at Mukti Kshetra and Damodara Kund, situated high in the Himalayas in Nepal. It takes four days of hard trekking to reach Damodara Kund. After deducting the packaging and courier charges the rest of the money goes to the poor villagers, whose village is the blessed place where this sacred Shila of Lord Narayana is found. It is their main source of living. It is a difficult to access place high up in the mountains. Hence it is a donation for them.
We select carefully and supply only genuine Saligramas brought from Gandaki River at Mukti Kshetra (Muktinath) and we do not supply the cheaper priced similar rocks found at Triveni and we guarantee the the marks and chakras are genuine and not touched up rock carving work. Hence at times the delivery may take more than one month.
The following are the various Saligramas we can send you. The amount you can donate is mentioned.
Lord Shiva confirms in the Skanda Purana that even if a shila is cracked, split, or broken it will have no harmful effect if it is worshiped with attention and love by a devotee. It further states there that the Supreme Lord Hari and His divine consort, Lakshmi, live in the shaligrama that has either the mark of a chakra, a chakra along with the mark of a footprint, or a mark resembling a flower garland.
