10 Matchings for Marriage

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


1. Dhina porutham 

Dhina 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


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

If boy belongs to rakshash Gana and the girl belongs to any Gana the match will be Mathimam.

If girl belongs to rakshash Gana and there is no match if boy belongs to any other gana.

This match will determine mangala or auspiciousness.


3. Mahendra porutham 

If counted from girl’s nakshatra if you get 4,7,10,13,16,19,22,25 the match is uthamam. Otherwise no match.

This match is considered for offspring (children)


4. Sthree Theerkam 

While counting from the Girl’s nakshatra if boy’s comes above 13 the match is uthamam. If it comes above 7 mathima porutham.

This porutham gives good longevity and prosperity.

6. Rasi porutham

Apart from these 10 matches between two horoscopes there is another thing called nadi porutham. North Indian consider this important. Body belongs to three nadis Vatha, Pitha, sileshma. This is related with medicine and well being and heatlh.

If girl belongs to vatha nadi, boy should be pitha or sleshma nadi.
