Dear BhakthAs : There have been questions on 
the Bhakthi list in the past about SaaLigramam worhip 
and the classification of SaaLigrama mUrthams .
Following note form Sriman Ravi Mayavaram of Texas A&M 
might be of interest to you . His note on source
literature would be of interest to those still
looking for such information .
