Shashtiabdhapoorti or the 60th birthday / marriage anniversary / Ugraratha Shanti is the celebration of completing sixty years based on the Jamna Kundali (Birth Chart) and on the day of birth-star. A milestone in life. As per Vedic scriptures, man’s life span is believed to be 120 years. Sixty years in Sanskrit is known as Shashtiyabdhi. Shashtiabdapoorti marks the completion of half the life of one’s lifetime. Hindu calendar system has individual names for sixty Samvatsaras. The occasion of Shashtiabdapoorthi marks the completion of one such cycle. The sages and the rishis of Vedic times have acknowledged the sanctity of the sixtieth year in one’s life and have drawn out elaborate rituals to mark this special event.
The Shasti Poorti celebrations in modern times have two important aspects Shanti and Kranthi. The rituals by Shanthi goes by the norms prescribed in the shastras, while the Kranthi is purely conventional in nature. Yamadharma (God of death) comes riding in a chariot called ‘Ugra Ratha’ at this juncture of sixty years.
Shanthi – The rituals carved out as part of Shanti are also referred to as Ugraratha Shanti. Shanti is a prayer sent to the heavens to make the post–sixty span a spiritually fulfilling experience. Shanti should be performed in the same year, month and on the same day of the birth according to the Indian Zodiac.
A Shantikarya has to be performed to mark this milestone and offer gratitude for the life given by God. During this Sandhikala, on the day of birthstar, homas, Japas and Pujas are carried out to bless the person. Pureprayer offers the best Vedic priests for Shashti poorti. On this occasion, all the gods of sixty Samvatsaras, stars, Chiranjeevis, Kuladevata, Ishtadevata, seven seas, seven sacred rivers, Dwadasha Rudras and Dwadasha Adityas are offered Pujas and venerated for their blessings.
Kranthi – After the successful completion of “Shanti” programme, the Kranthi programme follows in which “Kalyaanam” is very important. “Kranthi” means “to step ahead” and signifies heading towards a new life.
