Astrology and Shaligram



Astrological Significances of Shaligram Stones


Shaligram is a black stone by nature where Lord Vishnu himself resides.

Lord Vishnu :-

The peace-loving deity of the Hindu Trinity, Lord Vishnu is the Preserver or Sustainer of universe with his steadfast principles of order, righteousness and truth. When these values are under threat, Lord Vishnu emerges out of his transcendence to restore peace and order on earth. For these duties Lord Vishnu has taken different earthly incarnations in different time as "Nine Avatar" so far. His Nine avatars are:-

Matsya Avatara,
Lord Rama,
Lord Krishna,
and the yet to appear is the 10th incarnation of Lord Vishnu called the Kalki Avatar.

Vedic Astrology :-
Vedic Astrology (or Jyotish) is the system of astrology that was taught to the ancient sages by the God almighty. The objective of our birth is to learn karmic lessons which are taught as the form of all the things we experience throughout our entire life. Again, these experiences of our lives are for the karma (Action) we perform. And Jyotish reveals this map of karma through planetary positions.

Through planetary positions, we know the intention of the God about us for the karma we did. The nine planets are the incarnation of him to render us the result of what karma we have performed. The planets are the agents of the karma - like the law enforcement authority. And Jyotish deals with the karmic influences with the help of planetary positions in the sky. So there is deep connection between our life and Nine Planetary system.

To begin explaining the correlation between planets and Lord Hari Vishnu, the Srimad-Bhagavatam (2.6.42) describes that, “Maha-Vishnu (Karanadakashayi Vishnu) is the first incarnation of the Supreme Lord in the process of creating the material worlds.

He is the master of eternal time, space, cause and effects, mind, elements, material ego, the modes of nature, senses, the universal form of the Lord (Garbhodakashayi Vishnu) and the sum total of all living beings, both moving and nonmoving.” Not only do the creations and annihilations of the cosmos go on continually, but the maintenance of the universe also takes constant supervision. It is explained that as long as the Supreme Being as Maha-Vishnu continues to glance upon nature, the material world continues to exist. Thus, the variegated flow of universal creation perpetually manifests through procreation. So, we can see that time and nature have no power to act independently, but are under the supervision of the Supreme. However, it is also described that it is not only the material nature that is maintained, everyone in it is also given the ability to act and function through the power of the Supreme in His form as the Super soul.

He creates the entire variegated universe and then enters into it as the Super soul. Through this means He provides the life force and consciousness of everyone, and, thus, maintains the creation. As Sri Krishna further explains, “As the mighty wind, blowing everywhere, always rests in ethereal space, know that in the same manner all beings rest in Me.” As the Super soul, He also enters into each planet, and by His energy they maintain their orbits. Thus, the Lord’s energy enters each planet, every living being, and : even each atom, by which everything is appropriately manifested and maintained. Without this, everything would revert back to chaos and deterioration. So Lord Vishnu is the only God that helps to maintain the equilibrium between all the planets and whole universe, which ultimately affects our life so worshipping different incarnation of Lord Vishnu in the form of Shaligram stone will help to alleviate the problem.
