There are 10 types of matches considered for marriage between a boy and girl. Apart from analysis of house 2nd, 4th, 7th these 10 porutham (10 matches) considered important. Rashi (Moon sign) and Nakshatra constellation are important. There are a number of software programs available to find jathaka porutham / pathu porutham. Without any software you can find it yourself with the following information. In Tamil Tradition marriage is considered an important part in life. So it is called �Aayiram kalathu payir� (Plant of thousand years). Our ancient astrology gurus with the divine help created these 10 porutham concept to help find a good match for a boy or girl. In Tamil Nadu and most part of India the first step in a marriage is Analysis of the horoscope of the bride and groom. The marriage will be considered if only the horoscope / jathaka matches.

There are three types of results for each porutham:

Uthamam � Good
Mathimam � Not Bad
Athamam - Bad

10 Matches are:

1. Dhina portham
2. Gana porutham
3. Mahendra porutham
4. Sthree Dheerkam
5. Yoni porutham
6. Rasi porutham
7. Rasi athipathi porutham
8. Vasiya porutham
9. Rajju porutham
10. Vethai porutham

At least 6 or 7 Poruthams including the 5, Dinam - Ganam - Yoni - Rasi and Rajju must be available. This is considered as Madyamam. 8 or More Poruthams if available is Excellent. Excellent Porutham can be obtained by proper selection of Horoscopes of Girl and Boy.

1. Dhina porutham


Dina portham is essential for prosperous life with out poverty and diseases. You have to count from Girl�s Nakshatra to Boy�s Nakshatra. While counting if you get 2,4,6,8,9,11,13,15,18,20,24 or 26 there is Dina porutham exist between the two. The result is Uthamam.

While counting except 1st quarter in 12th, except 4th quarter in 14th and except 3rd quarter in 16th are Mathimam.

All others and Ashtama Rashi Nakshatras are Athamam or no match.

Ashtama Rashi means 8th rasi. For example 8th for Tarurus is Saggittarius. Moolam 1,2,3,4 Pooradam 1,2,3,4 Uthiradam 1 belongs to that rashi. When girls Nakshatra belongs to Rishab (Taurus) All nakshatras of Saggittarius won�t match.

Aega Nakhsatra / Same Nakshatra:

When both boy and girl have Rohini, Thiruvathirai, Poosam, Maham, Hastham, Thirivonam Dhina porutham will be uthamam.

When both have Ashwini, Bharani, Karthikai, Mrigashrish, Punarpoosam, Uthiram, Chithirai, Anusham the Dina portuham result will be Mathimam.

When both have same rashi boy�s nakshatra should precede girls. When both have same Nakshatra should precede that of the girl.

The rest 13 won�t match.

If you get 27 while counting match is considered, only if the rasi is same otherwise there is no match.

While counting from girl�s Nakshatra if boy�s comes as 7th, it is called �vatham�. While counting from boy�s nakshatra if girl�s comes as 22nd it is called �vinashika�. Vahtam and �Vinashika� sould be rejected.

This is primary method for calculating dhina porutham. There is other method using Janmam, Anu Janmam, thri janmam. This is least used method, hence I am not explaining it here.

2. Gana porutham


1. Deva Ganam: These persons are supposed to be well behaved, Affectionate, Soft and Good natured with good Character and High values.

2. Manusha Ganam: Men and Women of this category will have all the good and bad qualities of human beings. Their behaviour is good but they also tend to show their anger, enmity at times.

3. Rakshasa Ganam: The behavior, nature, and character of this category of people are expected to be Aggressive, Rude and Rough.
It is difficult for them to co-operate with others. They can upset others by their unpleasant behavior and talk Many times they will think they are right and others are wrong. But they are also good sometimes.

Deva Ganam Manusha Ganam Rakshasa Ganam
Ashwathi Bharani Karthika
Makayiram Rohini Ayilliam
Punartham Thiruvathira Makom
Pooyam Pooram Chithira
Atham Uthram Vishakom
Chothy Pooradom Thrikketta
Anizham Uthradom Moolam
Thiruvonam Pooruttathi Avittom

If both boy and girl belongs to Rakshash gana the match is uthamam.

This match will determine mangala or auspiciousness.

Each house in the RASI chart is ruled by one of the Navagrahas (Planet).. Some planets have two places. The planet ruling the house of the Birth Star is 'RASI ADHIPATHI'.

The relationship between Chevvai and Sukran is Equal Status. This is Madhyamam - neither Very Good nor Bad. Acceptable. Rasi Adhipathi Porutham depends on the Relationship of the two planets ruling the house where Chandran is found in Rasi Chart.
