Among all the aspects of life, what do we cherish the most? Relationships. They are perhaps the most critical facets of life. One relationship that holds great significance and comes under the scrutiny of our society is that of a married couple. In Indian society, marriage stands tall in terms of social significance. It is a lifetime commitment and has, for centuries, been traditionally arranged, mostly by elders in the family or by parents, who view compatibility to be the key factor between a prospective couple.
Marriage is the most celebrated social event with religious, traditional, and cultural emphasis that sanctifies the union of two individuals.
The first step in a traditional or arranged marriage is Horoscope matching, which is also called Kundali Matching or Kundli Milan. Kundali Matching is the most important consideration for a marriage, which matches the Kundlis (horoscopes) of the prospective bride and groom. Matching Kundlis helps gauge if the couple complements each other well in many aspects essential for a good and lasting marriage.
Kundali Matching is an age-old tradition for determining compatibility levels in the horoscopes of a prospective couple for marriage. The compatibility level is the clinching factor that will indicate if the marriage will be a happy and harmonious one. Based on this premise, the families will decide to proceed with the marriage arrangements to make the prospective couple, husband, and wife officially.
Dasama (ten) Porutham or Thirumana (marriage) Porutham is a vital part of India's traditional marriage process. Dasama Porutham was devised by Indian sages of ancient times to match the prospective couple's horoscopes to check the levels of compliance and flexibility between them. These top ten factors have since been perceived as the yardstick for gauging the compatibility of a couple. The Poruthams are evaluated mainly based on the comparison of Nakshatras (birth stars) of the boy and the girl.
Each of the poruthams hold a unique significance and are imperative for checking the compatibility levels in a prospective couple's horoscopes. The top ten factors for Kundli matching are:
Among all these poruthams, Rajju Porutham is considered the most important, followed by Mahendra and Dina(m).
A cursory look at each of the ten poruthams will tell us what they indicate.
The matchmaking process (Kundli matching for marriage) is an ancient Vedic astrological practice, passed down for generations. While marriage is based on love and harmony, Kundli matching gives it that divine touch of affirmation on compatibility that ensures a marriage for a lifetime.
