‘Sashthi’ means 60, ‘abda’ means years and ‘poorthi’ means completion.It is a Hindu ceremony that is celebrated to commemorate the 60th birthday of a person.Having devoted to the service of God, built and retained the family ties with a bond of constant relationships, this is a best time to celebrate at this phase of life. This is considered more ideal to set an example to their own family and society. This celebration is usually organized by the couple's children, younger siblings and grand children. In addition to various poojas, part of the wedding ceremony is re-enacted. The couple that is celebrating Vivaha Shastyabdi are given blessings from elders who have themselves already celebrated such events.
Meaningful and elaborate rituals have been included to mark this milestone in a person's life. Some of the wedding rituals are performed. Some call this ceremony as Ugra Ratha Shanthi, which literally means appeasement of harsh times.
The couple seek the blessings of elders who have themselves completed their Shashti Abda Poorthi and in turn bless the ones who are younger to them.
The ceremony includes Udakasanthi, Ayush Homam(for longentivity of life), Navagraha homam ( praying to all planets for the well-being), Dhanvanthri homam ( praying for good health) and Mrithyunjaya homam ( praying for longevity) and other basic rituals.
