There are crucial “36 Gunas” that are taken into consideration. All of these revolve around the fundamentals of a fulfilling life like mental compatibility, happiness.
The next step right after she/he says “Yes” and parents of both the parties agree is the crucial and mandatory process of Kundali Matching. In an India matrimonial, this step is considered sacred and is a way of matching the horoscopes and knowing the astrological compatibility of the Brides and the Grooms. While to parents and other elderly members of the family Kundali Matching is an important factor in the making of a marriage, most of us are unaware of its true essence.
Kundali Matching has been a mandatory practice since ages. Almost all our marriage making processes right from our ancestors have been marked by the presence of this ritual. It is believed that when the astrological birth charts a.k.a. “Kundali” match, along with all the “yogas” and the “doshas”, the fact that the prospective Grooms and the Brides will lead a happy, satisfactory and a peaceful life can be ensured.
The Basic Kundali Match Requirement
Whilst comparing the horoscopes of the Bride and the Groom, “36 Gunas” are considered to judge the compatibility between the couple. This is reason why Kundali Matching is also called Guna Milan. There are a specific number of points that are checked to analyse/predict the life of the marriage. These points are called Ashta Koot and are distinguished as follows:
- Nadi: 8 Points
- Bhakoot: 7 Points
- Gana: 6 Points
- Maitri: 5 Points
- Yoni: 4 Points
- Tara: 3 Points
- Vasya: 2 Points
- Varna: 1 Point
Together, these are the crucial 36 Gunas that are taken into consideration.
All of these revolve around the fundamentals of a happy and a fulfilling life like mental compatibility, Manglik dosha, the longevity of the relationship, like-mindedness, children, sexual interests and health. It is said that at least 18 Gunas must match. Only then the marriage is taken ahead and confirmed.
