Birthdays are special occasions that help us focus on ourselves, our health, goals and achievements. Similarly, Shastras suggest a ritual which insists on the importance of health, longevity and overall auspiciousness. This ritual is one among the 16 Samskaras which are considered mandatory worship and practice throughout one’s life.
According to Vedic culture, one celebrates birthday with regards to the star in which they are born (Janma Nakshatra). We at Vedic Seva, help you find out your Nakshatra and help you remember your Vedic Birthday, which might be a different Gregorian date every year. This ritual is not deity-centric and the only focus is on the overall life improvement of the devotee.
Every God related to time (moon phase, star, yoga, karana) are all pleased by this worship. Lord Bhaga, the God of auspiciousness is propitiated to attract wealth and success. Lord Mrityunjaya, the form of Shiva is also offered prayers to improve longevity and remove fear of disease and ailments.
