Shila, (शिला in Devanagari, śila in IAST refers to a Vaishnava (Hindu) aniconic representation of Vishnu, in the form of a spherical, usually black-coloured fossil found in the sacred river Gandaki.[1] [2] They are more often referred to as Shaligram Shilas, with Shila being the shortened version. The word Shila translates simply to 'stone' and Shaligram is a less well-known name of Vishnu. The origin of the name is traced to a remote village in Nepal where Vishnu is known by the name of Shaligraman. Shaligram in Hinduism is also known as Salagrama. The name Salagrama refers to the name of the village on the bank of Gandaki where the holy stones are picked up. The name is derived from the hut (sala) of the sage Salankayana, who beheld the form of Vishnu in a tree outside his hut (cf. Varaha-purana). This hut was on the banks of the Gandaki, and it was in that particular spot that these sacred stones were found in abundance. The stones were therefore called Salagrama.
The episode relates to Varaha Purana which says that once there was a sage by the name Shalankayana, who was performing austerities and devotional meditation in many holy places with the view to gain a great devotee of Lord Vihsnu as his son. He visited the sacred tirtha (holy place) of Muktinatha in present day Northern Nepal, high in the Himalayas, and took his bath in the icy waters of the Kali Gantaki at the back of Annapurna mountain. Extremely tired from his climb in the high altitude, he finally took rest under a sala tree. Fast asleep on the eastern side of the tree, he didn't notice that the Lord Krishna had come and stood before him. Then by the Lord's mercy the sage awoke and saw his Lord standing there and immediately propitiated him with melodious Vedic mantras. The Lord then fulfilled the desire of the sage and gave him a son on the spot, and being pleased with his devotional attitude, gave another boon. Krishna informed that from that day (the dwadasi in the sukla paksa of the month of Vaisaka) He would eternally stay on the area of that mountain in the form of the Salagrama stone. Actually there was no sala tree there at that time - it was a special self-manifesting mercy incarnation of the Lord appearing for His devotee. So in the same way, the Lord continued to tell the sage that in the self-manifesting form of the Salagrama Shila, He will reside there, and the devotees can take Him in this form and worship Him, and He will reciprocate their love in that way. This is confirmed in the Mahabharata (Vana Parva Ch 84, 123-125), where it is said the name Salagram is given to Lord Vishnu who resides in the Salagrama at the Salagram Tirtha.
Although Hinduism is commonly represented by such anthropomorphic religious murtis, aniconism is equally represented with such abstract symbols of God such as the saligrama.[3] Furthermore, Hindus have found it easier to focus on anthropomorphic icons, as Lord Krishna said in the Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 12, Verse 5,
It is much more difficult to focus on God as the unmanifested than God with form, due to human beings having the need to perceive via the senses.

The Shilas (Ammonite fossils) are worshipped as manifestations of Vishnu Himself, identifiable from other stones by special markings, believed to resemble Vishnu's paraphernalia such as mace, conch, lotus and disc (chakra). Narasimhadeva, Varahadeva and Vamanadeva are popular forms of worship. They are either black, red, or mixed in colour and are usually kept closed in a box and are only brought out for daily worship (puja). The Shilas are usually hereditary and are passed down through many generations, never being purchased or sold.
According to Vaishnava belief, the worshipper of a Shaligram Shila must adhere to strict rules, such as not touching the shaligrama without bathing, never placing the shaligrama on the ground, eating only prasad, and not indulging in bad practices. In most Vaishnava temples the main deity is usually decorated with a 'garland' mala, specifically an Akshamala, of 108 Saligrama Shilas.
Legend of Salagram - Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil is closely associated with the origins of Shila worship.Once in anger Sarasvati cursed Lakshmi. Sarasvati's curse changed Lakshmi into a tulsi plant and forced her to live on earth forever. Vishnu, however, intervened and modified the curse, saying that Lakshmi would remain on earth as tulasi until the river Gandaki flowed from her body. In the meantime, He would wait by the riverside in the form of a stone to take her back to His abode. This stone was the shaligram shila, which thus remained on earth as a representative of Vishnu. The shila deities and the tulsi plant are thus always worshipped together as Vishnu and Lakshmi.
History of Salagram - Historically, the use of shaligrama (or salagrama) shilas in worship can be traced to the time of Adi Shankara through the latter's works. Specifically, his commentary to the verse 1.6.1 in Taittiriya Upanishad [5][6] and his commentary to the verse 1.3.14 of the Brahma Sutras suggest that the use of Saligrama in the worship of Vishnu has been a well-known Hindu practice.
The largest and heaviest shaligrama can be seen at the Jagannath Temple, dedicated to Vishnu, at Puri in Orissa. The main ISKCON temple in Scotland, called 'Karuna Bhavan' is famous for housing the largest number of Shaligram Shilas outside of India.

Benefits - The marks made by the shell of the ammonite give a Shaligram its characteristic appearance, with the pattern often resembling and representing the 'Sudarshan Chakra' or the discus with a sharp-toothed edge which rests on the index finger of Lord Vishnu. Shaligram stones come in dfferent colors such as red, blue, yellow, green and black. Of these, the yellow, blue and black varieties are considered more sacred. The yellow and golden-colored Shaligrams are considered most auspicious and are believed to bestow great wealth and prosperity on its worshippers. Some Tips and Importance of Shaligram Shila's are given below:
1.Worship Shree Shaligram for six values of life:Righteous living, Wealth, Protection, good health, pleasures and Spiritual .
2.The Shaligram is the most sacred stone worshipped by the Vaishnavas and is used to worship Vishnu in an abstract form i.e., God without form as a 'Saligrama'. The use of the Shaligram is similar to the use of 'Lingam' as abstract symbol of Lord Shiva.The Shaligram is found in river Gandaki near Muktinath in Nepal.
3.There are numerous popular beliefs concerning salagrama. Salagrama alongside Tulasi leaves and conch (samkha), placed in one plate is regarded as most meritorious.
4.Any religious observance, gift, consecration, obsequies, and worship should preferably be done in association with a salagrama.
5.Regarding the obsequies or the last rites (sraddha), it is usual to conduct such ceremonies in front of a salagrama. For that would ensure the departed spirit reaching Vishnu’s abode directly: and subsequent death ceremonies would become unnecessary.
6.When the dying person is made to sip a little of the water in which the salagrama-stone is bathed, he will be freed from all sins, and will reach the heavenly abode of Vishnu. And death itself when it occurs in the presence of a salagrama-stone will pave the way for Vishnu’s realm, for Vishnu is present in that stone.
7.The rites of expiation of sins (prayaschitta) becomes effective more by drinking the water in which these stones are washed than by gifts or fasting or by observances of various kinds.
8.In times of solar or lunar eclipse, whatever ritual is undertaken becomes all the more effective when done in front of a salagrama-stone so says Hemadri.
9.It was practice in the olden days to ask the witness to hold a salagrama in hand while testifying in a court of law; if he uttered utter falsehood, he was believed to suffer immensely and long as a punishment.
10.Merely looking at a salagrama stone would wash away the sins of the beholder, even as the mere sight of a lion would make the antelopes run for their lives in the forest.

     1)  SB 7.14.29 P               Ideal Family Life  
In the temple there must be the Deity of the Lord, and the
Lord should be worshiped by the devotees. This combination of the
devotees and the Deity creates a first-class transcendental place.
   Aside from this, if a grhastha devotee worships the salagrama-sila,
or the form of the Deity at home, his home also becomes a very great
place. It was therefore customary for members of the three higher
classes--namely the brahmanas, ksatriyas and vaisyas--to worship the
salagrama-sila, or a small Deity of Radha-Krsna or Sita-Rama in each
and every home. This made everything auspicious. But now they have
given up the Deity worship. Men have become modernized and are
consequently indulging in all sorts of sinful activities, and
therefore they are extremely unhappy.
       2) Adi 13.86     The Advent of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu  
Especially in every brahmana's house there must be a salagrama-sila
to be worshiped by the brahmana family. This system is still current.
People who are brahmana by caste, who are born in a brahmana family,
must worship the salagrama-sila. Unfortunately, with the progress of
Kali-yuga, the so-called brahmanas, although very proud of taking
birth in brahmana families, no longer worship the salagrama-sila. But
actually it has been a custom since time immemorial that a person born
in a brahmana family must worship the salagrama-sila in all
circumstances. In our Krsna consciousness society, some of the members
are very anxious to introduce the salagrama-sila, but we have
purposely refrained from introducing it because most of the members of
the Krsna consciousness movement do not originally come from families
of the brahmana caste. After some time, when we find that they are
actually situated strictly in the line of brahminical behavior, this
salagrama-sila will be introduced.
      3) Adi 7.45            Lord Caitanya in Five Features    
There are many Vaisnava families in Bengal whose members, although
not actually born brahmanas, act as acaryas by initiating disciples
and offering the sacred thread as enjoined in the Vaisnava tantras.
For example, in the families of Thakura Raghunandana Acarya, Thakura
Krsnadasa, Navani Hoda and Rasikananda-deva (a disciple of Syamananda
Prabhu), the sacred thread ceremony is performed, as it is for the
caste Gosvamis, and this system has continued for the past three to
four hundred years. Accepting disciples born in brahmana families,
they are bona fide spiritual masters who have the facility to worship
the salagrama-sila, which is worshiped with the Deity. As of this
writing, salagrama-sila worship has not yet been introduced in our
Krsna consciousness movement, but soon it will be introduced in all
our temples as an essential function of arcana-marga (Deity worship).
