1. Introduction

1.1 The energy and Karma assigned to a native during any particular life span, require an arena, wherein they can be worked out. The life essence, which reincarnates and which plays its various roles during any given life span, unfolds the drama of life in the arena. The man is a social animal and as soon as he feels he has come to an appropriate age/ state, he feels like to form a different nucleus in furtherance to the social needs. For centuries, marriage is viewed as a social institution to take care of emotional, sexual, economic & intellectual needs of the spouses. In India, the parents are more emotionally attached and concerned about welfare of their children and feel that by virtue of their experience, they are better judge to select suitable spouse or matching the correct spouse & his family for their children.

2. Doshas in Marriage

2.1 Manglik/ Kuja Dosh: Mars is a first rate malefic, which cause this Dosh if placed adversely in 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house of a chart. An adversely placed Mars plays havoc in marital life causing disharmony, infidelity, illness, or even death of spouse or divorce. Mars is a fiery planet denoting violence, crime, disaster, accidents, miseries, mishappenings or even death. The quantum of Kuja dosh in 8th, 7th, 1st, 4th, 12th and 2nd house will be in decreasing order. It is suggested that Kuja dosh should be ascertained from the strongest of lagna, Moon or Venus. Therefore the matching of horoscopes of prospective couple is a must for checking the Manglik Dosh. The Manglik Dosh is said to be cancelled or largely mitigated in following cases:

i) If Similar Dosh is found in the charts of both the boy & girl.

ii) If the Mars happens to be exalted/ Yogkaraka.

iii) If marriage is solemnized in Gaudhuli Bela i.e. time of sun-set.

iv) If Marriage is first solemnized with an innate object like a tree, vegetable or a pitcher.

v) The marriage is solemnized after 28 years of age.

2.2 Kalatra Dosh: It means the curse attached with one’s spouse. It may cause delay/ denial of marriage or marital disharmony. It is revealed from karaka of marriage, Venus, 7th house/ lord and lagna lord of Navamsha. If all three are afflicted, it denotes “No marriage”. In case of partial affliction, it denotes delay/ disharmony/ incompatibility in marriage. The marriage of a native with this Dosh should be solemnized with one with a strong & unafflicted Venus, 7th house/ lord and Navamsha lord.

2.3 Nadi Dosh: Nadi is a Hindi word meaning pulse. It is classified with reference to 27 Nakshtra into three types, Aadhi, Madhya or Antya nadi. Ashwani, Bharini & Krittika represents Adahi, Madhya and Anthya nadi. Rohini, Mrigshira & Ardra represents Anthya, Madhya & Aadhi nadi. Then from Punurvasu representing aadhi nadi the cycle continues. The star of the boy & girl should fall in different nadi; otherwise their children may have blood related problems.

2.4 Vish-kanya Yoga: The girls born with any of the following yoga are called Vish-kanyas:

i) On a Sunday, Dwadashi Tithi in Krittika/ Shatbhisha Nakshtra.

ii) On a Tuesday, Saptami in Vishaka Nakshtra.

iii) On a Saturday, Dwithiya, in Ashlesha Nakshtra.

iv) A benefic and a malefic in lagna.

v) Having two malefic in 6th house.

vi) Saturn in lagna, Sun in 5th and Mars in the 9th house.
Marriage of such girls causes disturbances and violence resulting in unhappy married life, unless they are married to a boy whose 7th lord is a powerful benefic posited in 7th house and whose 7th house is stronger than 6th house.
