The 27 Nakshatras are represented as 27 equal segments of a circle, each covering 13 degrees 20 minutes. The sequence of the 27 Nakshatras begins with Ashvini Nakshatra in Mesha Rashi. Our Ancient Vedic Astrology takes account of birth Nakshtra as playing important role in our lives. The nakshatra in which your moon is placed at the time of your birth is called your Janma Nakshatra. This janma nakshatra has also got its influence on you. Our janam Nakshatra points towards our attitude, physical appearance and future. Birth Nakshatra determines the thinking pattern, destiny, instincts and also governs the subconscious aspects of personality.
To neutralize the malefic effects of the planets in their main periods(mahadasa) or sub-periods(antar dasa) and to attain benefic results from the same planets the scriptures have prescribed significance of nakshatra puja and homam. The nakshatra is worshipped in the prescribed ritualistic manner with mantras and offerings. We get inner strength and confidence along with desirable results. Sometimes we achieve them instantaneously and in certain cases but not always they are slow. But they are certain to occur

Sadabhishekam or Sahasra chandra darshana shanthi is 81 years 2 months

With reference to Vedic astrology, it is believed that the nine planets take 120 years to complete a cycle around the Sun; likewise, a human is bestowed with a life expectancy of 120 years. from 60 years of age, every tenth birthday thereafter is deemed as a blessing of the gods and the milestone is celebrated with great pomp and vigour.

shashtiaptha poorthi represents the completion of 60 years of age Shashti means sixty; abda–year; poorthi-completion. IT should be performed in the sixty-first year and in the same month and day of birth according to the Indian Zodiac. This is considered to be the best option. In case it is not possible to time it exactly on the same day, allowance is given to perform it on a convenient day during and before the completion of sixty-first year. after this every 10 years, you should do the Shanthi bheemaratha shanthi completes 70 years of age, and sadabhishekam completes 80 years of age. 

 That is [81y- 54d]. This gives the ‘Tithhi’ of the day of birth of the person (Janma tithhi) whose celebration it is. If a full moon happens to be before his Janma Tithhi by ‘x ‘ days, then you’ll find a full moon day so many days before [81y- 54d]. that is the day of celebration.

Upakarmam means beginning or “Arambham”, or to begin the study of the Veda.
Those belonging to the Yajur Veda observe the Upakarma in the month of Sravana, on full moon / Poornima Day.
Those belonging to the Rig Veda observe the Upakarma in the month of Sraavana, on Sravana Nakshatra Day.
This auspicious day also happens to be the day when Lord Narayana took the avatara as Lord Hayagriva. Lord Hayagriva restored the Vedas to Brahma and also is the God of Knowledge. In the not too distant a past, Veda Adhyayanam / study was performed only during the period Sravana / Avani to Pushya / Tai. (from mid-August to mid-January). Therefore, one is supposed to perform an utsarjanam / giving up the learning of Vedas in the month of Pushya / Tai.
from Pushya / Tai to Sravana / Avani, Just like an Upakarma function there was a Utsarjana function in Tai. The period between January to August was then devoted to learning other branches of our shastras. Thus the cycle ofUpakarma and Utsarjana concerning Vedic studies was established. However, this method took 12 or more years to learn just one veda. Slowly this became impractical and Vedic studies continued throughout the year.
Therefore, the first thing to do before the Upakarma function is to do a praayaschitta / atonement for having learned Vedas during the prohibited period. That’s why we begin the function by doing the “Kamokarshit…” japam
The main purpose of the Upakarma function is to offer prayers and express our gratitude to those rishis who gave us the Vedas — the rishis through whom the Vedic mantras were revealed.

The word upanayanam samakaram in Sanskrit is composed of two parts – upa, meaning near and nayanam means eye and samskaram means  to make perfect or to polish. The ceremony is one of 16 major rites of karma. The upanayanam ceremony that invests the wearer with the sacred thread is often considered a socially and spiritually significant rite (or samskara)and then only he becomes Brammachari. so, it is called Brahmmopadesam.  After the upanayanam, the boy is initiated into the study of the Vedas. The first birth is physical. Upanayanam is the second birth, birth into the spirituality. (Hence the name dwija, twice-born) the age at which upanayanam is performed is 7 years
