What is Nadi Koota

Nadi Koota is the eighth and the most important horoscope compatibility (Kundali matching) factor in the Ashtakoot matching done during marriages. It carries 8 points, the maximum among the eight compatibility factors that make for Ashtakoot matching. Nadi Koota reveals the physical and physiological matching between the prospective bride and groom. Also, it matches their hereditary factors. It describes the three doshas – vata, pitta and kapha. Vata is called the Aadi Nadi, pitta is the Madhya Nadi, and kapha is the Antya Nadi.

In Vedic astrology, one Nadi is assigned to each of the 27 Nakshatras. This means there are 9 Nakshatras belonging to Aadi Nadi, 9 in Madhya Nadi and 9 in Antya Nadi. Nadi Koota compatibility is considered excellent if the couple scores 8 points. This happens when the Nadi of the male is different from that of the female. If the Nadi of male and female are the same, then the matching brings 0 points, and the marriage will end in disaster. This is called Nadi dosha. The major effect of Nadi Dosha is the birth of children with health issues. It also affects love and attraction between the couples leading to conflict in married life.

Nadi Koota Maha Dosha remedies

There are three types of Nadi doshas. They are Aadi Nadi dosha, Madhya Nadi dosha and Antya Nadi dosha. Each Nadi dosha causes a certain kind of mismatch in marriages. Aadi Nadi dosha will result in a lack of dedication, Madhya Nadi dosha will cause quarrels, and Antya Nadi dosha will cause a lack of cooperation. Nadi dosha can be ignored if the prospective couple belongs to the same Moon sign or Rashi. Nadi dosha gets cancelled if both the male and female have the same birth nakshatra, but the Pada (part or quarter) is different. In other cases, Nadi Koota Maha Dosha remedies are available in the following ways:

  • Using gemstones
  • Through Nadi nivarana puja
  • Reciting Maha Mrityunjaya mantra for the prescribed number of times
  • By having the bride marry Lord Vishnu first and then the groom
  • By donating gold, clothes, food, and grains to poor or needy people

Antya Nadi and Madhya Nadi compatibility

The Madhya Nadi is Pitta. Here the energy is radiated to both directions from the middle portion of the body. It is also known as Sushmana Nadi, and it consists of fire and water. The Antya Nadi is Kapha. Here the energy is radiated from the top of the body to the bottom. Also known as Ida Nadi, it consists of earth and water. Madhya Nadi rules the Nakshatras Bharani, Mrigshira, Pushya, Purva Phalguni, Chitra, Anuradha, Purva Shada, Dhanishta, and Uttara Bhadrapada. Antya Nadi rules the Nakshatras Krittika, Rohini, Ashlesha, Magha, Swati, Vishakha, Uttara Shada, Shravana, and Revati.

When Madhya Nadi and Antya Nadi are matched, it gives a score of 8, which is good for the prospective couple. Such a matching means a combination of three different elements, namely fire, earth and water. This represents a sound physical and physiological compatibility. Such marriages will see mutual respect and admiration between husband and wife. Children of good health will be born to them.
