7. The sins of the beholder would be washed away simply by looking at Saligrama, just as the mere sight of a lion would make the antelopes run for their lives in the forest.

Significance of Shaligram In Hinduism 
Shaligram is counted as 24 incarnations of Lord Vishnu. For this reason, in Hinduism, this stone is worshiped as a form of Lord Vishnu. According to the Puranas, Shaligram is worshiped as a deity form of Lord Vishnu. It is believed that if the Shaligram stone is round, then it is the Gopal form of Narayan. On the other hand, if the rock is visible in the shape of a fish, then it is the fish incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Further, if there is Shaligram in the shape of a tortoise, then it is considered a symbol of the Kurma and Kachhapa avatar. The circles and lines visible on the Shaligram stone are considered to be symbols of other incarnations of Lord Vishnu. This is the reason why there is no need for the life-consecration of this rock for worship. This stone can be worshiped by keeping it directly in the sanctum sanctorum of any temple. This is the reason why the Shaligram stone has special importance in Hinduism.
