Sashtiaapdapoorthi (known also as "Sashti Aapda Poorthi" or "Sashti Poorthi") is celebrated on completion of 60 years of married life by the living couple. 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. The best belief is that Vivaha Shastyabdi couple blesses all those participating / witnessing persons that too the younger than the Vivaha Shastyabdi couple.

If it is a very simple ceremony performing "Ayush Homam is a must. The other Homams that can be included are, Navagraha homam ( praying to all planets for the well-being), Dhanvanthri homam ( praying for good health) and Mrithyunjaya homam ( praying for longevity).

The next higher step is to have Rudra Ekadashi if you are followers of Lord Shiva. The sanctified water is done abhishekam for the couple, followed generally by a “Dhampadi pujai”. This needs Purohits who are well qualified to chant Rudram & Chamakam. Over & above, poor-feeding, making donations for worthy causes, creating endowments can all be done - these are more social than religious. Please contact your pandit for more religious formalities.

You can also perform Sashti Poorthi at Thirukkadaiyoor. The presiding deity there is Amritha Ghateswara ( nectar lingam) who protected Markandeya from Death.
