Astrology/Rajju in Ashtakoot Vs Dasavitha (Ten) porutham


Hello Sir,

After doing some superficial research on vedic astrology, I find that there are two different methods of star matching being followed in North and South India. While North India follows what is called the Ashtakoot(eight) method, South India follows dasavitha(ten) porutham method.

Though I have read in some blog posts that both the methods take into consideration similar factors, I want to know how exactly does Rajju porutham fit in the Ashtakoot method. Since, Rajju porutham is attached extreme importance in South India, I am sure that the Ashtakoot method should as well have something similar.

Also I would like to know if the stars fall under the same Rajju but split across Arohanam and Avarohanam category, would it be fine to go ahead with the alliance ?

It would be great if you can shed some light on this topic.


Kumaran.... Rajju Porutham is attached importance in marriage matching process.
The reason is that Rajju is considered as ensuring the Maangalya Bhagyam of the Girl.
The 27 Nakshatras are grouped into 5 categories.  Each category is assigned a name representing a segment of the human body.The general principle is that the Boy and the Girl should not belong to the Nakshatras which fall under the same Rajju.  This means Eka Rajju is incompatible.The important factor is that because Rajju signifies the Maangalya Bakyam, no one is prepared to make a compromise on this Porutham.

The Nakshatras of the Girl and the Boy should not fall within the same Rajju.  Then, it is considered as Eka Rajju and becomes incompatible and mis-matching.
It constitutes Rajju Dosham and is incompatible.

O'm..Gam: Ganapathaye namah: Sri Gurubhyom Namaha...Under my Master's and Guru's blessings, I can answer questions relating to Astrology ,with my 40 yrs of experience. May be that Compatability of horoscopes for Marriages, remedial measures in delayed marriages, progress in the studies and higher-level of education , getting jobs, promotional chances, financial stability, health problems,disputes in the family and outside, monetary-problems,tensions, worries etc. I will advise some remedial measures also for propitiating the planets i.e.,Santhi, Homa, japa, Navadhanya-daana , Ratna-dharana etc.,calculating the strength of the planets, and the running mahardasas in their Zodiacal birth signs. Even then, frankly speaking, WE SHOULD experience some Negative results, what ever Parihaara you will do. I feel that my MASTERS will speak through me. This is all my MASTER'S Voice, what I feel in my predictions. If my predictions are correct the CREDIT goes to my Masters and Gurus only. Regarding Vasthu also, I will suggest some techniques, to benefit for the entire family members. My contact Numbers....+91 9849519456., and +91 8465846856


I have been following this subject for more than 40 years and I have attended more than 5000 queries till now, through this channel. In the areas of Astrlology and Vasthu, I have done some services to the public,voluntarily.If anyone offers Guru dakshina, I will spend the same for..Dharmic sevas,like oldage-homes, orphanages, etc.and MUKAMBA seva..MU..muga(Dumb),KA..kandlu, kaallu leni (in Telugu) blind and lame and BA.. badhira ( Deaf), as a squireel's help. I want to help the physically handicapped... Astrology (jyothishyam) is an infinite and in-depth subject. I will learn everyday, from every one. It's study is an on-going and all-round learning from the live experiences. Even today,I frankly agree that I am a student in this subject.No one can claim that he is a Master, except he is a Tapaswi or Maharshi. The Depth of this subject is beyond a human's recognition, to speak frankly and OPENLY.

Professionally speaking, I am a Retired Manager, in State Bank of India .With a service-motto, I do these voluntary-astrological services, and give Vasthu ( house-related) suggessions.To help others is my Hobby, Motto and my Ambition. Through Internet and Mobile calls I do these services. At present through this channel, everyday, I attend 2 or 3 mails. I may increase it in future.

So-far,I have not published anything. I may publish in future, if my Masters, Gurus and Elders bless me.And also if you all, readers and writers support me.

Basically ,I am a post graduate in Economics i.e.,M.A(Economics). Ancestorly, I learnt this subject from the Basics from my father's brother Sri.Jagannadheswara sarma (Late), and from my father Sri.Ahobaleswara sarma (late). And,in the begining, I have read some pages of Astrological texts, like Brihat Parasara, Varaha samhita, Kalamritham etc. I used to be a subscriber for B V RAMANS Astrological magazines, for some time.I have learnt this subject partly,from my elders, in my child hood, and still practising and knowing the subject everyday.I am very much fond-of this subject. I do believe in its reality. This is an ancient subject.I repeat that this is 70% or 80% true, depending upon the Place, time and accuracy of birth. UPAASANA is adequately and mostly essential for some predictions.
