Jathaka porutham (Horoscope match) is designed as an application called Vedic Marriage Match that would prove useful to anybody who wants to choose the right life partner and would involve an astrological process to match the horoscopes of the prospective bride and groom. This exercise is usually performed by an astrologer who analyzes the 2 horoscopes (kundali matching). The main objective being, to ensure a harmonious, balanced and a healthy married life.
Astrology is basically, predicting about a marital relationship and if it will be happy, long, and prosperous. For ensuring this, the astrological process involves analyzing the relationship of the concerned parties, in a number of dimensions (which is considered important).
To elaborate the above, there are 10 types of match ways(porutham) which are considered as part of Vedic Marriage Match. Rasi and Nakshtras plays the role in deciding whether the 10 ways match. Our age old astrologers invented the concept of ’10 Porutham’ to help find the best match between a boy and a girl who intend to marry. The marriage is considered only when there is match.
The 10 matches being:
Dhina porutham, Gana porutham, Mahendra porutham, Sthree Dheerkam, Yoni porutham, Rasi porutham, Rasi athipathi porutham, Vasiya porutham, Rajju porutham, Vethai porutham
There are three types of results for each porutham:
Uthamam – Matches, Mathimam – Average, Athamam - Doesn't Match.
From the 10 Porutham list above,
It can be concluded that the 2 horoscopes match even when only Nakshatra Porutham, Raasi Porutham, Gana Porutham, Yoni Porutham and Rajju Porutham match and not all of the 10 Poruthams should necessarily match. Rajju Porutham signifies Mangalya bakyam of the female. When this does not match, marriage is not recommended and this match is considered as the most important of all.
This kind of marriage matching process is best suitable for arranged marriages and not really recommended for those who are already in a love affair or a relationship. As we know that the ‘Mana Porutham’(Emotional Bondage) is the crux of a happy married life!
P.S: The result of any of the Poruthams would either be ‘Match’, ‘Average Match’ or ‘Doesn’t Match’. As far as this app is concerned, for a better user friendliness and clarity, the result of a particular Porutham would either be ‘Match’ or ‘Doesn’t Match’. The result ‘Average Match’ is considered for the final result (after considering all the 10 Poruthams).
