Perfect Soulmate for Marriage

Gana Porutham in Marriage Matching

While considering a marriage alliance, the Hindu custom does not allow the tying of the knot until the ten poruthams are studied and matched for the couple who desires to be joined in matrimony.

Jathaka porutham is calculated by matching the jathakam or horoscope which is drawn based on the birth stars and birth rashi of the boy and the girl in question. There are 10 poruthams and each is considered for the marriage alliance.

Gana porutham is the second among the ten poruthams (the Dina porutham being the first). Gana porutham takes into account the matching of the nature of both the boy and the girl to assure compatibility of mind, body and sensuality after marriage.

Gana porutham is differentiated into three types. These are the Deva Ganam, Manushya Ganam and Rakshasa Ganam, each of them represented by nine stars.

Deva Ganam

People under the Deva Ganam are good natured, soft spoken, generous, well behaved and affectionate. They consider a good character and a life of high values of great importance in their life.

Manushya Ganam

Those under the influence of Manushya Ganam possess a character with mixed qualities. In other words they have both good as well as bad qualities in them; they have good behavior but can also display anger at times and even enmity.

Rakshasa Ganam

Under the category of Rakshasa Ganam come those people who possess an outright bad behaviour; both in their speech and their actions. They are rude, aggressive and rough to anyone and everyone; they are unpleasant with others and find it difficult to cooperate with them and think they are always in the right. Only rarely are they found to behave well with others.

  • If both the boy and the girl are of the deva ganam porutham, they are said ‘to agree’ and this match is considered as ‘every good’ (ati uttamam);
  • if both are of the manushya ganam, they are also said ‘to agree’ and it is also considered as ‘good’ (uttamam)
  • if both the girl and the boy are of the rakshasa ganam, the match is not recommended because the marriage will not be a happy one and will not last long thus destroying the very reason why the poruthams are made even though the match is said to be ‘uthamam’
  • If the girl comes under deva ganam and the boy under manushya ganam or vice versa, their match is considered as a secondary match or ‘not bad’ (madhyam).
  • If the boy is of the rakshasa ganam and the girl is either a deva ganam or a manushya ganam, the match is considered to be mediocre or ‘madhyam’
  • if the girl is of the rakshasa ganam and the boy is of any other gana, the match is considered ‘athamam’ and is not recommended.
