I have heard/read that in some cases a marriage is forbidden on the basis of mismatching kundalis/gunas.
In some other cases it's forbidden because of caste incompatibility.
Basically my question has three parts:
- Is there any relationship between the two practices?
- Are the any Hinduism references that explain how kundalis/gunas work?
- I just want to know how it works not if it works in real-life.
- Are the any Hinduism references that explain how the caste system works?
- According to wikipedia the caste system is in part the result of British Colonialism but my Indian friends tell me that the caste system has been around longer than that but that it's not clear if it's or not part of the doctrine.
If you don't have an answer but can point me to reliable sources I would very much appreciate it.
