Nice work and good borders too! Hope the function went off well. A little doubt. How is it SatAbhishEkam is celebrated at 80? Regards! - mOhana

Thanks a lot jkm ammu is still asleep Blum 3 I am taking d liberty to answer ur query.It seems a man has to witness 1000 pirais(new moons) in his life which usually happens when he completes his 80th birthday....then d couple can celebrate their sadaabhishegham....infact if you can please read yesterday's (23rd june) Dinakaran daily its Aanmeega issue my fil(L.Natarajan from Pudukkottai) had asked ur same doubt to its author and the answer was published it seems...we still haven't read it Smile

I know this. It is called sahasra chandra darSana. But this occurs after completing 80 years, 10 months, 7 days in the 81st year, not at 80. That is why I asked about it. Also in India most people celebrate birthdays a year earlier Smile What I mean is - they say they celebrate the 60th birthday when they finish 59 and reach 60 and not when they complete 60. Here you say you are 60 when you complete 60 years, i.e., on the 61st birthday. This also causes considerable confusion. In fact, before I left to this country in 1980, I attended a friend's SCD function and we bathed him also on that day. My wife has two relatives who are hundred not out! May the gentleman be showered with God's blessings! Regards! - mOhana

Yes jkm sir ...u r right...infact we thought of celebrating d ceremony last year itself(fil's birthdate is 7-10-1931)...but then our purohidars said you have to conduct d ceremony only when my fil completes his 80th we waited till this yr and then happily finished off d function. Smile
