In the world, one should desire to live a hundred years, but only by performing actions. Thus, and in no other way, can man be free from the taint of actions.
जीवेमशरदः शतम् [अथर्ववेद, काण्ड १९, सूक्त ६७]: We should live for 100 years
Aitareya Upanishad Khanda 8: “This becomes perfect as a thousand of Brihatî verses, and of that hymn, perfect with a thousand Brihad verses, there are 36,000 syllables. So many are also the thousands of days of a hundred years (36,000)” of human life.
Brahmacharya ceremony: At the time of the investiture with the holy thread, the boy is blessed with the word: ‘May you live a hundred years!’
After the marriage ceremony, the husband and wife pray together: ‘May we live a hundred autumns!’
