SRI SRINIVASA SALIGRAMA TEMPLE
Sri Srinivasa Saligrama Temple
The Srinivas Saligrama Temple enshrInes more than 5,000 sacred Saligrama stones, which are the conscIous, living embodiment of Lord Maha Vishnu Himself. Her Holiness Amma Sri KarunamayI consecrated and inaugurated a rare and unique Saligrama Temple from February 12-16, 2017 with a very grand Maha Kumbabhishekam.
These sacred stones are installed at the feet of a special idol of Lord Srinivas, the gracious, boon giving form of Lord Maha Vishnu that is said to be here to bless devotees in the current age of Kali Yuga. The darshan of one Saligrama blesses humanity with many benefits. What to say of the darshan of an entire Srinivasa Temple that houses over 5,000 Saligramas.
The sheer existence of such a temple is an immeasurable virtue and an open doorway to moksha. The Saligramas are installed within the temple’s innermost sanctum sanctorum. Because of their placement, one cannot see the Saligramas but can feel their power and receive the holy teertham. Teertham is the sacred water in which Saligramas are kept or the water with which abhishekam to the Saligramas has been performed.
Saligramas are very rare and powerful sacred stones which are naturally born or ‘svayambhu’, not manmade – they are revered as embodiment of Lord Maha Vishnu and Goddess Sri Mahal Lakshmi Devi, as devi dwells in the heart of Lord Vishnu,
As Sri Vyasa Bhagavan has already stated that these Saligramas will disappear in the next 200 years from the Kali Yuga, these self born powerful Saligramas which are next 200 years from the Kali Yuga, theseRead More
self born powerful Saligramas which are worshipped from ages by Sri Karunamayi Amma’s ancestors are being installed for the benefit of mankind and for ‘World Peace’.

universe and all living beings from natural calamities and disasters like floods, volcano eruptions, fire accidents, wars, mental and physical illnesses, untimely death.
