    Temples for Sashtiapthapoorthi

    Namaskaram,

    My father's 60th birthday falls on March of next year. We are planning to have my parents Sashtiapthapoorthi at Temple. We wish to know in which temples we can do the Sashtiapthapoorthi.

    Sri Vijayaashree ji,

    Couple of years before all our family members went on a long Tamil Nadu Temple Tour.

    During this tour we visited one of the most mesmarising ABIRAMI-AMIRTHAKADESWARAR Temple.

    This temple is very famous and considered to the be best for performing "AYUSHYA HOMAM', "SASHTIYABTAPURTI" & "SATHABISHEKAM"

    It is considered that one who has the blessings would certainly get a chance to perform all these in this temple.

    There are differnt standards of performing such ceromanies to suite one's budget.

    The most expensive one include - bringing in the Temple Elephant to the pooja and performing certain rituals along with the couple


    Near to the moolavar - "AMIRTHAKADESWARAR ", there is a shrine of "MARKANDEYA" who was blessed by Lord Shiva to remain sixteen years of age forever and with immortality to rescue him from the clutches of YEMADHARMAN.


    If you could perform your parents "Sashtiapthapurti" in this Temple, your parents and yourself will really have the blessings of GOD in a very spiritual way.

    I wish you could perform the ceremony for your parents in this temple.

    The temple is situated in Thirukkadaiyur, located in Nagapattinam district between Mayiladuthurai and Porayar.

    To get more details on this temple please click on the link below -

    Abirami - Amirthakadeswarar Temple
    Cheers.........


    ANBE SHIVAM...

    There are many temples regarding this shastiapthapoorthi. Anyhow Thirukadaiyur is very famous among them. Other temples include

    1. Shri karunambika samedha dandeeswara swami temple- Velachery, chennai (where lord gives back the dhandha of yama to him)

    2. Karuvili shri sarguneswara swami temple- karuvili (Where rebirth is destroyed)

    But Iam not sure about the facilities available in these temples for doing shastiapthapoorthy when compared to Thirukadaiyur.

    recently i went to "THIRUPPAINJILI" IN Trichy District. We were informed by the temple priest that it is an ideal place for "Sashtiapthapoorthi". Yemadharmaraja was given rebirth by Lord Shiva in this temple. Lord Shiva burnt Yemadharmaraja after the Markandeyan episode and as a result there was no death to anyone(creation) in the bhoomi. Not able to withstand the "Bharam", Bhoomadevi went to Lord Shiva alongwith other devas and pleaded. It is in this place, Lord Shiva, gave re-birth to Yemadharmaraja, who has a separate sannadhi here. Yeman appears as an infant. So, it is believed, there will not be "yema bhayam", if sashtiapthapoorthis are performed here. It is under the control of H R & C E Board of Tamil Nadu. If any one can explain more about this "thiruthalam", i will be thankful.

    Shashitiabda purthi in temples

    Though the practice of performing in temples has been going on for years due to the overambitious and avaracious nature of Gurukkals,as per agamas any rituals connected with an individual's life are not supposed to be performed inside a devalayam which is meant for celebration of the rituals connected with deities

    Normally Rudram is recited 1,008 times(Egaa Dasa Rudram ) infront of holy pots and poured into the couple during Shastiabdapoorthi.

    But if rudram is recited inside a temple, it has to be offered for abhisekam of the deities only and it should not be poured on any human being.

    Hence performing shastiabdapoorthi in temples has to be avoided.

    All the best

    Also I think this is the festival which should be celebrated with the help of sastrigal and not gurukkal (with my little knowledge am saying). Also this is a family function only. So doing it in home or mandap is best. We did last year this fucntion for our father in mandapam only.
