Starting from the first birthday till the 50th , there are number of Shanti's to be performed according to the corresponding age for health and overall progress of the individual in all directions.

He who is born has to die one day; there is no doubt about it. But as long as we live we should live a quality life and in harmony with the nature. God is with us at every moment, but he is very strict. He who is unkind and cruel is punished. But as we all are his (God's) son and daughter he further says “do not worry as I am with you at all the times. You just devote yourself and I will take care of all your worries and would ensure that you lead a peaceful life and attain ‘Moksha'.

As said in Bhagavad-Gita: -

“Ananyaashchintayantomaam ye janaaf paryupaasate

Tesham nityaabhiyuktaanaam yogakshemam vahaamyaham”
