Significance

In Vedic tradition, there are 60 years (Samvatsara/Varsha) and each year has a name to it. Hence, the completion of 60 years is a unique correlation and also a divine new beginning.

Indian calendar is different and unique from others and is mostly based on Astronomy. Another unique feature of Indian calendar is that, it is further divided into two, Chandramana(Tithi based on Moon phases) and Souramana(Thithi on movement of Sun). A Vedic year has the following subdivisions, two Ayanas (Solstices), six Ritus (Seasons), twelve Months, two moon phases (waning and waxing) and days. There are further more categories such as Muhurat, Nakshatra, Hora etc. but those are more related to Time.

In Vedic tradition, there are 60 years (Samvatsara/Varsha) and each year has a name to it. Hence, the completion of 60 years is a unique correlation and also a divine new beginning.

Scriptures mention a Ritual to be performed on this special day, which is more of a remedy for all the known and unknown karma accumulated since birth and for all the malefic combination of stars, planets and other birth chart (Jataka) doshas.

There are many reasons for “Why this ritual has become more of a celebration and less of a remedial ritual” like the abhishekam (pouring) of sanctified water over the couple and Mangalya Dharanam (tying the knot).

When should you perform?

The Western way of calculating a birthday is the combination of Date and Month. Vedic Birthdays should be celebrated on Janma Nakshatra (Star of the day you were born) corresponding to the month you were born. In very rare cases, a Nakshatra falls twice a month as there are 27 Nakshatras and 30 days in a month. Usually the second and certain times, the most auspicious among them both is chosen to perform this ritual.

Benefits

  • Removal of unknown and known karma/actions accumulated since birth
  • Relief from planetary afflictions
  • Longevity
  • Blessings of various deities, sages and their forms (Time, seasons, moon phase and nakshatras)
