Shaligram having shanka;mace; kurma and matsya signs; 1 opening – 2 circulars is known as “SankarShana Shaligram”
The second dimension of the Adi Purusha – Sankarshana symbolizes prosperity. “Sankarshana”– literally means one who has both the powers of attraction and repulsion.
Sankarshana who was dragged out of Vasudeva’s body (akrasya tu svakaad dehaath) too is complete in all the four aspects (chatuskala).He is red in colour. And, he produced Pradyumna.
Likewise at the Genesis of creation, he manifests himself thus creating the Universe and during the Maha Proloya – the Great Destruction, he by this force with draws the Universe into Himself as a transfixed point – which modern science calls “The Point of Singularity” – “The Vindu”.
“Sankarshana” is basically “Kriya Shakti”- kinetic force. It has both the capacities to expand and recede. When the Universe is drawn into him, it attains an undivided and undefined state. It was neither a solid, nor liquid nor gaseous state. It can be compared to the fourth state of matter.
“Sankarshana” has two “Tanus” – dimensions, “Shabd Bramh” and “Param Bramh”. “Sankarshana” is the beholder of the Universe and the culminator of the power and the powerful. It is He, who can collectively combine the Drashta – Who sees, The Drishya – What is seen and Darshan – The act of seeing, into the form of Wholeness. He is the beholder of the collective consciousness of this Universe.
