Kundali Matching (Kundali Milan)

Introduction

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 Tradition of Kundali Matching

Match Matching

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 Porutham (Ten Compatibility Factors) for Kundli Matching

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.

Porutham (Compatibility Factor) For Match Making

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:

  • Dina Porutham or Nakshatra Porutham (Matching Birth Stars).
  • Rasi Porutham (Indicates Good Union and Family Growth).
  • Gana(m) Porutham (Indicates Matching of Temperament).
  • Yoni Porutham (Indicates Sexual Compatibility).
  • Rajju Porutham (Indicates Partner’s Longevity).
  • Rasi Athipathi Porutham (Indicates Friendliness Quotient between House Lords of 2 Zodiacs).
  • Mahendra Porutham (Indicates Longevity, Wealth, and Progeny).
  • Stree Dheerkha Porutham (Indicates Wellbeing of Wife, Wealth, and Prosperity).
  • Vasiya Porutham (Indicates Mutual Attraction).
  • Nadi Porutham (Indicates Health and Well-Being of the Couple).

Among all these poruthams, Rajju Porutham is considered the most important, followed by Mahendra and Dina(m).

What the Poruthams Indicate:

A cursory look at each of the ten poruthams will tell us what they indicate.

  • Dina/ Nakshatra Porutham – this is the first porutham to be checked, matching the prospective couple's birth stars. It indicates longevity, general wellbeing, and prosperity of the couple. It ensures a married life free from poverty and ill-health.
  • Rasi Porutham – indicates if their Rasi (zodiac signs) are in sync with each other, that can result in a happy and long-lasting marriage. It checks the level of compatibility between the horoscopes of the prospective couple. This accord indicates good camaraderie and unison that leads to the expansion of the family.
  • Gana Porutham – indicates the affinity in temperament between the spouses. It affirms the level of mental and spiritual compatibility. There are three types of Gana(m).
    • Deva - good-natured, affectionate, and soft-spoken.

Kundli Matching is said to be good if there is Mahendra Porutham.
  • Stree Dheerkha Porutham – indicates if the girl has a prosperous life after marriage. A strong Stree Dheerkha Porutham indicates the couple will be bestowed with wealth and prosperity. The couple will have a long and happy marital life.
