1)  SB 7.14.29 P               Ideal Family Life
Therefore, 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).

 

4) there are over 60 references made by Srila Prabhupada in his books

to Salagram silas and their seva.The above are only a few….

 

SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF SALAGRAM SILA WORSHIP

 

1) Wherever Salagrama sila and Dwarka Silas sit together, Mukti also resides .

2) Where both Salagram and Dwarka silas sit together all classes of opulence increase unlimitedly.

3) Whoever touches a salagrama sila, adorned with chakras becomes free from all sins.

4) Any sila, although broken, cracked, split or broken asunder, is never inauspicious.

5) Both Laxsmi Devi and Lord Narayana reside in salagrama silas.

6) Varaha Dev Salagram gives material enjoyment and mukti.

7) Sudarshan Chakra Sila satisfies the aspirations of His devotees.

8) Sesa Ananta Sila has coils like a snake and is all auspicious.

9) Worship of Lord Narayana in a sila is more pleasing to Lord Narayana Himself than to His own deity in a temple.

10) By worshipping a salagram sila one benefit is equal to one agni hotra sacrifice and giving the entire world in charity.

11) If one serves a salagram sila he gets mukti even without giving any charity, doing any sacrifices study of the Vedas or going to tirthas.

12) In Kali yuga if a person worships a sila with faith , love, flowers, kirtan, and prayers, he will eternally enjoy sublime spiritual happiness.

13) Any pious activity done within a 24 mile radius is multiplied a million times.

14) Anyone who dies within 2 miles of where a sila is worshipped goes back to Vaikuntha.

15) Even if a lusty person or one who carelessly worships a salagram sila, he will get mukti.

16) The results of fruitive activity can be calculated, but by the worship of a salgram sila the benefits are Unlimited.
