Respecting our culture and traditions is all that we Indians are about. These customs and
rituals are the foundation of our Diversified nation. Since the very beginning, we have been
instructed about the importance of superstitious beliefs and the importance of astrological
predictions. Our forefathers have laid down several norms under the wake of Vedic
astrology and these regulations are to be applied while one is ready to enter into wedlock.
The deep-seated origin of Horoscope matching is the best way to determine the fact that
whether the two parties into consideration are compatible with each other or not. The
matching of the birth charts and the gunas of the bride and the groom is quite an important
step while binding the two in a life long relationship.
Are you deciding to get married anytime soon? Well, if you are then you might want to go
through the norms of kundali matching as laid out by our ancestors. There are several
factors one needs to consider while going through the process of crafting a relationship
between two love birds. First and foremost is the ashthakoota method which matches the
gunas of the two natives into consideration. This method carries the eight kootas with hip
in terminating the romantic, emotional, physical, and mental compatibility of the couple.
Apart from the gunas, the existence and the positioning of planets and the houses
simultaneously is also considered to be of utmost importance while matching the kundalis
of the future couple.
