The turning point in a person’s life, marriage is believed to bring along luck, prosperity and happiness. However, it is important to find the right one for you and then tie the knot.
The Hindu tradition, speaks highly of the first and foremost step, kundali matching, before marrying someone. Famous astrologers in India including the likes of Bejan Daruwalla, Sundeep Kochar, K N Rao and more, are also of the same opinion.
It is not only mandatory according to the Hindu culture, but has numerous factors that make it a beneficial and crucial step.
The phrase, ‘two bodies, one soul’ is much more than just four words. According to shastras, husband and wife are considered as a single identity after marriage, and hence should be compatible with each other. Matching kundalis reveals the truth about all the aspects of the two individuals’ lives, and dictates how their lives will pan out after marriage.
Many top astrologers in India opine that understanding the position of planets and then marrying accordingly does not only bring two people close for one life, but for the next seven lives.
At the time of birth, a child’s stars and planets define his or her future. The timing of birth and the positions have an impact on the individual’s lives. Sometimes, it is these factors that create doshas in the person’s charts.
Post marriage, these doshas, Mangal Dosha, Shani Dosha or others, can create problems in the lives of the couple. Thus, matching kundalis gives clarity on what to do in order to diminish the effects of these doshas. In cases where the kundalis don’t match, marriages are not recommended.
3.Guna or Ashtakoot
This is one of the major factors taken into consideration. A total of eight gunas are matched, each of which have different numeric points that add up to the number 36. A match with 18 or more as the total out of 36 is considered good.
A major consideration for both the bride and groom’s families is the adjustment in each other’s families. The matching of the kundalis not only reveals the adjustment factor for the two people getting married but also for the families involved.
5.Financial stability and career
Marrying the right person works wonders for people financially. When two souls unite in the sacred bond, Bhakoot, the seventh guna out of the eight gunas defines what financial stability will look like for the two. This directly dictates the career prospects, and thus lets the families know if the marriage will be a beneficial affair.
Sundeep Kochar, a famous astrologer in India also says that kundalis bring clarity that help understand the right steps to be taken in order for the couple to have a life that is sorted and smooth.
A happily ever after, comes only when the right steps are taken in the very beginning. Kunalis have been a crucial part of the traditional matchmaking process in India. It is always advised to check if the match is a suitable one because it ascertains the future, prosperity and luck that a marriage will bring along for both the individuals.
