Shashti Abda Poorthi (Sanskrit meaning: Sashti = 60, Abda = years, Poorthi = completion) is also known as 'Sashti Poorthi'. In an individuals life, the completion of sixty years is referred to as Shastipoorthi. It is a Hindu ceremony that is celebrated to commemorate the 60th birthday of a person. From the Western perspective, it is close to the sliver-wedding anniversary. As per the Hindu culture, the age sixty is of great significance because it is considered as a turning point in a man's life for at this age one has usually fulfilled his commitments to family and home and so he can turn his mind to spirituality. We can say that, the period before he reached sixty is defined by materialistic pursuits and thereafter it is to be defined by his strive towards spiritualism.
The sixtieth year in everyone's life is a significant milestone. A memorable turning point. A touching reminder of the rich, mellowed life that would unfold in the years to come. The sages and the Rishis of lore have acknowledged the sanctity of the sixtieth year in ones life and have drawn out elaborate rituals to mark this special event. The celebration at this point of life is a sacred part of the hallowed Vedic culture. The rituals carved out as part of Shanti are also referred to as Ugraradha Shanti. Ugraradha is nothing but the harsh natured time. In a hundred-year time scale of mans life, pre-sixty is a period of materialistic pursuit while the post sixty span is slated for spiritual endeavor. The Ugraradha Shanti is a prayer sent to the heavens to make the post sixty span a spiritually fulfilling experience.
