Guna Milan and Graha Milan for Marriage | Marriage Matching

Guna Milan

Horoscope matching or Kundli Matching consists of Guna Milan and Grah Milan. Indian marriage is considered as an indissoluble and sacred institution, it is a bond that Indians believe will be long lasting till the end of their life. It is the match decided by the Almighty for lifelong partnership and taking the family forward. Finding a suitable partner which is mentally compatible, healthy to bear children, provide fulfillment of sexual pleasures, the practice of horoscope matching or Kundali Milan is given lot of importance.

What is Kundli Milan or Horoscope Matching

This system of Kundli milan or horoscope matching is very elaborate, there are two main features of horoscope matching. One is Grah milan or matching of the planets , the other is Guna Milan which can be said as matching of the specific aspects.

Guna milan is very popular throughout India and its sole aim is to do the best horoscope matching for the purpose of marriage and compatibility. This very system of Guna Milan has been in practice in India since the Vedic ages and even today it is considered as the best solution for judging compatibility between two horoscopes. The system is so embedded in the society that even in the case of love marriages, family insist on doing a Guna Milan of the horoscope. Mostly astrologers and pandits follow a system which is complete in all respect for marital life of a person. It covers general compatibility, behaviour, sexual compatibility, progeny etc. Guna Milan is simply a complete process of horoscope matching in itself and nothing else needs to be given attention for the purpose of matching for the marriage. Guna Milan is based on the birth Nakshatra, that is the Nakshatra in which Moon was posited at the time of birth. As only Moon is taken into consideration during Guna Milan this in itself is simply incomplete Matching and therefore marriage decision purely based on the basis of Guna Milan is not recommended. It is strongly suggested that Grah Milan (Matching of the Planets) in the horoscope is complete Horoscope Matching where all planets are taken into consideration along with the Moon and also the 7th house which is the house of Spouse, Marriage and Marital life.  

Guna Milan for Marriage

For those who are new and are not familiar with the system of gun Milan, let me explain that the system of guna Milan is based on matching 8 aspects or koots from both of the horoscopes. These are Varna, Vashya, Tara, Yoni, Grahmaitri, Gana, Bhakoot and Nadi. All of these 8 koots are assigned 1 to 8 points or gunas respectively which make a total of 36. The final score is calculated for a particular horoscope matching or match making based on how good or bad is the matching of each one of these 8 koots. Bhakoot and Nadi dosha which have 7 and 8 points respectively are most important because Bhakoot deals with compatibility between the two horoscopes to lead a blissful life. While Nadi deals with health and progeny and a dosha in any can severely spoil the pleasures of marriage in ones life.

The minimum considered is 18 guna or points for a good marriage life. Points below 18 the matching should be avoided because the compatibility is less then 50 % . Incase there is a Bhakoot or Nadi dosha or even both, the marriage alliance should be avoided as the chances of troubles marriage or separation are very strong.

There are some exceptions in Vedic Astrology under which Bhakoot / Bhakut or Nadi Dosha can be ignored. You can read more about Bhakut Dosha exceptions in the Bhakut Dosha article.

You may also refer to Nadi Dosha article for Nadi Dosha Exceptions

What is Graha Milan

Grah Milan or Matching of all the Planets are the correct method for Horoscope Matching or Kundli Milan, where Guna Milan is one of the components. In Graha milan all planets are looked into along with the Moon and deep analysis is done of the 7th house , its lord and benefic and malefic afflictions on the 7th house. Remember that all planets have a very important role to play in the life of an individual and it is not only the moon. Therefore the Online Horoscope matching that is available on the internet is not complete as it ignores the Grah milan. The online Horoscope matching is just calculated based upon birth Nakshatras of the individuals. Whereas a complete horoscope matching involves Nakshatra, planets and most importantly the 7th house, which is the prime house of marriage and marital life.

Is online kundali matching accurate

The online kundali matching is mostly accurate but the results can alter depending upon ayanamsa used for horoscope calculation, however the online Kundali matching available is NOT COMPLETE Horoscope Matching. The native should look at both Ashtkoot Guna Milan and also the Grah Milan, that is matching of the planets before arriving at any final conclusions. Ashtkoot Guna Milan in itself is not a complete Horoscope Matching and many astrologers avoid Graha Milan because it takes time and can be lengthy. Online Kundli Milan software’s only do the Guna Milan as they simply calculate Gunas taking Moon into consideration and no one does the Grah (planet) Milan, therefore I strongly recommend that any native looking for complete Horoscope Matching should insist on Grah milan while doing Horoscope Matching, as this involves your future and also that of your partner.

Like I’ve informed you about gunas, die and all situation. Can you please provide me the complete details & remedies that we can do so that we’ll marry each other not only the nadi dosha. I hope you help us.

      1. In your horoscope match the Ashtkoot Guna milan score is 23.5 out of 36, which is higher than 18 that is required for marriage. There is 6-8 Bhakoot Dosha, which is not auspicious. Marriage should be done only is 6-8 bhakoot dosha gets cancelled.

      1. No it is not fine. You need minimum 18 guna out of 36 for marriage. 18 is the minimum that is required for marriage. There is Bhakoot and Nadi dosha. You need to check if Bhakoot and Nadi get cancelled. If the dosha get cancelled then marriage can be done.

      Our gun Milan is 30.5. Is it fine ? Please check.

      1. 30.5 is a very good score in ashtkoot Guna milan, but Guna milan is checked from Moon only while in a horoscope there are 9 planets. Check Grah milan also to know if your charts are strong from all angles.

    11. There are no remedies in astrology for a marriage where the horoscopes are incompatible. Trying to force marriage will be quite futile like trying to dig a well together in the desert. Read my blog where I have given a scientific method of matching horoscopes.

      Boy’s details-7/6/1992
      Place- Dandeli Karnataka
      How many points match? And will this marriage work?

      1. The score im getting is 15.5 which is less than 18 that is required for marriage. There is Gana dosha and Bhakoot dosha, which are never considered good. Marriage should be done if the above dosha get cancel. Also you should do the Grah milan which is very important for checking happy marital life.

      We are in a relationship and planning to marry . Will marriage sustain ?
      Astrologers who have seen my horoscope says that my marriage may not sustain and also child birth will also not happen ?

      1. In your horoscope matching we see that there is 5-9 Bhakoot dosha. Nav pancham bhakoot dosha is never considered good for marital happiness. Also Rahu in the 7th house of boy charts is not good forms Kalathra dosha. Marriage should be done if your Grah Milan is good and also the bhakoot dosha gets cancel.
