yathaasthaanam; sastrigals are reciting rudram; but the kartha is not hearing those manthras;

he is giving more attention for their relatives and freinds who are coming there.

this is wrong;persons who are coming for the function should not speak in the hall they must hear rudra sound and only finishing this one they must speak.do not allow others to

speak at that time; rudra ekadasini will take 6 hours only during that time request all to keep quiet. virati srai thool samithu;ghee will be required for this ;ask your

sastrigal for the quantity required. Brass sombu and kudam can be reused for the next day function;

Abishekam to the kartha must be done only by the sastrigals; You should not

allow others to do abishekam for the kartha; For beema ratha shanthi no thiru mangalya dhaaranam as it is only shanthi. only for sathaabishegam children of the kartha can do

abishegam; rudra ekadasini can also be done without abhishekam to siva lingam and also without rudra homam; number of methods are there. the same method and requirements are

applied for shastiapthapoorthy; beema ratha shanthi sathabishegam ;

The quantity required for dasa dhaanam is described as follows in the shaarangathara samhitha vaidhya grantham ; cow with calf which gives 1 litre milk daily. Boomi;300

Santhi kusmakaram sanskrit book says that bhimaratha santhi must be performed on the end of 69th and begining of 70 th birthday star. I have written briefly about this in the 6th page of this rituals pooja and ceremony on the subject Arupatham kalyanam . required things and all other things. bhima ratha santhi thirumangalya dharanam is not there. all other rudra ekadashini and others for 60th birth day are required for bhima ratha santhi. best doing it in your house one day for rudra ekadasini and the next day ( on birthstar day and tamil month) you can do bhima ratha santhi.

For tiffin and meals marriage caterers will supply to you; some of your relatives and friends will come on the first day and some others may come on the second day.You may do on the next birth star day.

shashty abdhapoorthy: bima ratha santhy and satha abishekam .

According to our culture and tradition,, every man bound by the duties as the head of the family, is supposed to complete his duties towards the family, like education and marriage to his children before reaching the age of sixty. He then hands over his duties and properties to his children for further managament and diverts his attention towards pilgrimage to holy places etc; From now on , he performs the role of advisor only. However he imparts an adequate training to his children , to independently manage the family responsibilities so that his absence may not be felt

After a few years, the old couple is no more capable of long and arduous spiritual pilgrimages and time is spent on listening and contemplating on higher spiritual pursuits at home itself. They seek's the Lord's Grace to keep them healthy and fit to face the remaining period of life, without troubling others much. The remaing duties ,if at all any,left over is supposed to be completed by the time the individual reaches 70 years.

His 70th birth day is celebrated by his children and grand children,as Bheema ratha santhy.with all the rituals similar to shastyabdha poorthy . Both these functions are not only the celebrations of his successful achievement of the relevent duties of that particular stage, of life, and also an opprtunity for the children to pay their gratitude to the head of the family.

Sathabhishekam is then celebrated at the conclusion of 81 years, This 81 year old man is fortunate to interact with nearly three generations,and performance of sathabishekam with observance of all rituals, is supposed to releive the couple of all sins and reach the heaven.This punyah is equated to darshanam of all holy places, and a dip holy ganges. It is mandatory on the part of the children, as per our dharma sastra, to show their gratitude by looking after them in their old age.

While everyone in this world worship the Almighty, The Lord Himself adores and worships the following six classes of people:They are
(1) One who does annadhanam daily for the needy.

(2) One who has performed Soma Yagam at a young age and continuing with Agnihothram.through out his life.

(3) One who adhears to Massopavaasam =a praayaschitha karma - to ward off the commissions and omissions .Massopavasam means: Fasting on full monn and new moon nights; Fasting on day times on Sundays, ashtami and chathurdasi, and fasting through out the day on Ekadasi.

(4) A woman selflessly serving her husband without minding the hardships if any.

(5) One who has stidied the vedas and upanishaths with meaning and lives a Dharmic life as laid down in the sastras.

(6) One who has seen 1000 full moon.

Saint vaikanasa feels 80 years and eight months are sufficient enough for the celebration of sathabhishekam.
It is said that on the occassion of sathabishekam, all the gods and pithrus visit the performer's house, rejoice and bless the couple and everyone assembled there. Hence it is considered as a rare and significant event.
