avajananti mam mudha manusim tanum asritam

param bhavam ajananto mama bhuta-mahesvaram (BG 9.11)

Fools deride Me when I descend in the human form. They do not know My transcendental nature as the Supreme Lord of all that be.

Lord Krishna incarnated Himself as He is and played very wonderful parts as the Lord Himself, and the Bhagavad-gita concerns such wonderful actions and knowledge. The most wonderful manifestation of the Lord’s power is exhibited when the infinite Lord becomes visible to our eyes as one of us. Yet His activities are different from those of the finite beings.

The naturally occurring or Swayambuh deity form of the Lord is the Saligrama. These are found near Multinatha Kshetra in the Kali-Gandaki river. Different shapes of Saligramas are associated with the diferent avataras of the Lord. Lord Vishnu alongwith Goddess Lakshmi lie in the place where a saligrama is kept.

One can get a kingdom with the umbrella shape Salagrama, the elliptical shape gives us lots of wealth. Worshipping a saligrama can help one obtain benefits which equal mastering of the vedas.

Lets chant the Holy Name and seek this powerful personality’s blessings to gain mastery over true and pure devotion/bhakti.
