Marriage is a significant milestone in a person’s life. It is a lovely relationship that brings two souls together for the rest of their lives. It marks their transition into a new stage of life, with new opportunities as well as new responsibilities. There are many rituals that precede the actual union of two people in marriage in the case of a Hindu marriage. Of course, the first step is to match Kundlis or horoscopes. This is common in arranged marriages. When one family proposes a marriage alliance to another, the first step is to exchange the birth charts of the boy and the girl. This is done to determine whether their nakshatras or stars are compatible.
The main reason Kundlis are matched before a marriage alliance is formed is to determine the compatibility of the boy and girl. In astrology, there are a total of 36 Gunas that must be matched in order to assess the compatibility of two people and how their future life together will be. Each Guna has several points, each of which represents a different aspect of life. It can also reveal how their destinies and stars will interact with one another. Matching Kundli also aids in determining whether or not there will be conjugal harmony.
In the case of two people who marry, the planetary movements depicted in their horoscopes affect not only their own lives but also the lives of their spouses. Bhakoot, the seventh of the eight Gunas, represents this effect. When matching Kundli, people consider factors such as financial stability and career prospects.
The birth of children and their health is another important factor considered by Kundli matching. The eighth Guna, Naadi, carries the most points and indicates the possibility of childbirth or any difficulties in conception. Indians place a high value on progeny, and a lack of children is seen as a stigma because children are required to perform the parents’ last rites.
When a child is born, its fate is determined by the position of the stars in the sky at the time of birth. Many people dismiss astrology, claiming that it is nothing more than superstition. However, astrology is a science, and many famous astrologers throughout history have made very accurate predictions about world events. When the stars are not aligned correctly, they cause Doshas or afflictions such as Mangal Dosha, Sarpa Dosha, and Shani Dosha. These doshas can cause issues after marriage, but Kundli matching can help reveal them.When they are discovered in a birth chart, the astrologer will recommend appropriate remedies in the form of poojas or specific practices such as vrat (fasting), donations (of food, clothes, grains, ghee, etc.) to mitigate the negative effects. Marriage will be ruled out if the Dosha is extremely severe.
Some people may develop serious health issues, which may be fatal. Many marriages have ended due to a partner’s illness and the resulting financial and emotional strains. It can be detrimental to a marriage.
Some marriages are not destined to last long for some reason or the other. It is possible to assess the longevity of marriage through Kundli matching. If it shows that the marriage may not last long, obviously the marriage is not advisable
It is critical to understand the partner’s life expectancy. A spouse’s untimely death can be extremely traumatic for anyone. Widowhood is still stigmatized today. More than the stigma, however, the loss of a life partner is extremely painful for a person.
Following the Kundli matching, the astrologer is likely to recommend specific poojas for a successful marriage. Certain rituals can sometimes be used to remove Doshas. Even if the Kundli matches, certain poojas may be recommended for a happy and peaceful married life after a detailed analysis of the bride and groom’s birth charts.
