In the Mustang district of Nepal, the Gandaki River flows through the village of Saligrama and the Ashrama of Pulaha. The Mukti- natha Kshetram (“place of liberation or salvation”) Temple, presidedover by the main deity, Lord Vishnu, is situated in the village Saligrama between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna mountain ranges of the Himalayas. The Hari Parvatha mountains are identi-cal forms of Maha Vishnu that overlook the Muktinatha Kshetram. The Gandaki River flows beneath the Hari Parvatha moun- tains in Muktinatha Kshetram. This is understood as the place where Gandaki Mata incarnated as a river on Mother Earth. In ancient times, this area was called Salagiris, due to the forests of sala (trees) within the mountains (giris). The stones found in this region are therefore called ‘Saligramas.’ From the mountains of Hari Paravatham, many stones rolled into the Gandaki River.
