For beginners it is recommended to use an online Match Calculator, that use Ashta-Kuta system and takes into account the exceptions.
Matchmaking is the process of matching two persons together, usually for the purpose of marriage Based on Gunas or Marks , Which is done with the help of Panchanga along with Match Making Charts . Kundali matchmaking of a prospective bride and groom is the only option to ensure their compatibility. In Ashta-Kuta system of match making, the maximum number of Gunas are 36. Eight main factors Commonly seen in matchmaking are -:
- Varna (वर्ण)
- Vashya (वश्य)
- Tara (तारा)
- Yoni (योनी)
- Grah Maitri (ग्रह मैत्री)
- Gana Rashikuta Or GanaGunaChakra गण राशि कूट , गण गुण चक्र
- Naadi OR Nadi Guna (नाडी ,नाडी गुण)
- SadSatKuta (सदसत कूट)
Each factor is assigned basic points, which are as follows -
(Varna is 1 point), (Vashya is 2 points), (Tara is 3 points), (Yoni is 4 points), (Graha Maitri is 5 points), (Gana Rashikuta is 6 points) Sadsat kuta 7 points and (Naadi maximum 8 points.) The summation of all these points is 36.
On these parameters, the Kundali of the two interested person's are matched and the result of that calculations is called Guna Matching (गुण मिलन) (Match Making)
Out of total 36 points,18 points is 50%, are considered average, and 28 is considered to be satisfactory. Minimum 18 points are needed for matching the Kundli's.18 to 24 AVERAGE SCORE. Wedding match is acceptable. 25 to 32 VERY GOOD MATCH. Marriage will be a success. 33 to 36 EXCELLENT MATCH. Marriage will be a complete success.
When the bride and the groom have the same Naadi, (Madhya , Antya ,Aadya मध्य ,अन्त्य ,आद्य) it is called as Naadi Dosha. For eg, when both of them have Madhya Naadi, the Naadi Dosha will create some problems. This has a direct connection with blood groups of the couple involved.
There are eight types of Doshas -:
- Nrudrur Dosha न्रुदुर दोष
- Janma nakshtra Dosha जन्म नक्षत्र दोष
- Ek charan Dosha एक चरण दोष
- Yoni maitri Dosha योनी मैत्री
- Graha Maitri Dosha ग्रह मैत्री दोष
- Manushya Rakashasa Dosha मनुष्य राक्षस दोष
- Kuta Dosha कूट दोष
- Ek Nadi Dosha एक नाडी दोष
All over India, for Kundali matchmaking Mangal Dosha is seriously taken into account. While Shani Dosha is not seriously considered by all astrologers. Rashi(Moon signs).

8th house(Mangalaya sthana), 8th lord placement, aspection and conjunction
2nd house(Family life), 2nd lord placement, aspection and conjunction
5th house(children), 5th lord placement, aspection and conjunction. When people matched without analyzing 5th house, they will have problem in getting children
Beja and Khestra sthana and its lord - To find whether couples will get children
Any relation between 7th, 2nd and 12th lord. When someone have combined affliction in these houses they might get separated after marriage.
Dasa Bukti of both boy and girl, need to check if both have any common bad periods
