Dina Porutham

The first and the foremost of the ten Poruthams is the Dina Porutham. It is basically the Tara Koota which we studied earlier. So, the basic tenets of the Dina Porutham are the same like that of Tara Koota. Both have same philosophy. The main purpose of matching Dina Porutham or Tara Koota is to ensure good health and prosperity for both the husband and the wife with freedom from poverty, sickness and disease; the two are therefore expected to enjoy all comforts in a long and a happy married life.

In south India, matching of Tara Koota is known as Dina Koota and is slightly different from the Tara Koota Milaan. The first Triad of Nakshatra division is called Janma Paryay, second Triad the Anu Janma Paryay and the third Triad, the Tri Janma Paryay. All the 27 Nakshatras are divided into the three Paryayas having 9 Nakshatras in each Paryaya.

In the example horoscope, the Janma Nakshatra of the girl is Rohini and that of the boy is Uttara Phalguni.

As shown in the table, Rohini is Janma Nakshatra here, Hasta Anujanma Nakshatra and Shravan is the Trijanma Nakshatra. Like that of North India, 3rd, 5th and 7th Nakshatras of each Paryayas are considered malefic and inauspicious. But, there are exceptions to this rule in South India. Following are the exceptions in 3rd, 5th and 7th Nakshatra in Anujanma Paryaya.

Exceptions
Rule 1
  • ƒFirst Pada of the 3rd Nakshatra in Anujanma Paryay is inauspicious for marriage, but 2nd, 3rd and 4th Padas are not inauspicious if other Kutas are similar.
  • ƒFourth Pada of the 5th Nakshatra is inauspicious, but 1st, 2nd and 3rd are not.
  • ƒThird Pada of the 7th Nakshatra is inauspicious but the others are not.
  • 2nd, 3rd and 4th Padas of Swati Nakshatra, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Padas of Anuradha and 1st, 2nd and 3rd Padas of Moola are auspicious for the boy because the Janma Nakshatra of the girl is Rohini.
Rule 2

The exception mentioned above will be applied also in calculation of the Janma Nakshatras of the boy and the girl.

Rule 3

No part of Vipat, Pratyari and Vadha is inauspicious in Tri Janma Paryay. Taras of both the boy and the girl are auspicious.

Only the Vadha Tara (7) in a Nakshatra has been given special consideration. Following are the Nakshatras with which matching of horoscopes is not advised.

Horoscope Matching

Horoscope Matching

Today “Horoscope matching” has become the indispensable part of Hindu marriage. But it has not been mentioned in any old Jataka scripture of Astrology. However, it has been described in the Muhurta scriptures of the same. In Ramayan, marriage of Rama, Bharata, Lakshmana and Shatrughna has been described elaborately. But, in this great epic also Horoscope matching has not been mentioned. Likewise, in Mahabharata, too, it has not been cited. Therefore, it can be said that Horoscope matching in Astrology was not in practice a few centuries ago. But, the community accepted and made it an indispensable part keeping its usefulness in view.
