Differences between Purnima and Amavasya

  • Purnima is a full moon day while Amavasya is a no-moon day.
  • Evil forces and negative energies are high on the day of Amavasya. On the other hand, Purnima is an auspicious day and the day is ruled by positive powers. It talks about divine energy and brings new opportunities, happiness and joy in our lives.
  • Purnima happens when moon is completely exposed to the sun while amavasya happens when earth blocks the moon completely from the sun.

What are Rakshasa Gana, Dev Gana & Manushya Gana?

Gana shows a native’s behaviour and sense. We all humans have same physical body but the difference lies in their attitude and behaviour.

Those who have Dev gana are the people who are respected like Lords and behave nicely with people. They follow all the traditions and respect the cultural rules of the society.

Those with Manushya gana are also respected, but they not follow all the rules necessarily. These people are too creative and have good knowledge of dhanurvidya.

Rakshahsa gana people enjoy more advantages as compared to the people of other two ganas. Their 6th sense is quite powerful, and they have a capability of understanding negative energy earlier. These people are cruel as compared to other people.

Ganas hold utmost importance in Vedic astrology. It is said that all three ganas correspond to the energy of three Lokas: Swarg Lok (heaven), Prithvi Lok (Earth) and Mrityu Lok (hell). Swarga is known as the domain of Gods, Earth is considered as the domain of Manushya and Hell is considered as the domain of rakshasa.

Rakshasa Gana, Dev Gana & Manushya Gana

Nakshatra’s of Deva, Manushya & Rakshasa Gana

There are in total of 27 nakshatras that belong to one of these three ganas. Each of the three ganas consists of 9 nakshatras.

Deva gana nakshatras: Ashwini, Mrisgshirsha, Punarvasu, Pushya, Hasta, Swati, Anuradha, Shravana, Revati.

Manushya gana nakshatras: Bharani, Rohini, Ardra, Purvaphalguni, Uttaraphalguni, Purvashada, Uttarashada, Purvabhadrapada, Uttarabhadrapada.

Rakshasa gana nakshatras: Krittika, Ashlesha, Magha, Chitra, Vishakha, Jyeshtha, Moola, Dhanista, Satabhisha.

If someone belongs to a particular nakshatra, he will belong to the particular gana accordingly.

Kundli matching is a process of finding the right match for the prospective bride or groom. Ganas play an important role in this process of bride or groom hunting.  We have tried to answer a few common questions related to the topic.

#1 Can Rakshasa gan marry manushya gana?

Matching the compatibility between a boy and girl before finalizing their marriage is really important. It ensures a healthy, loving and happy relationship after marriage.

The marriage between a rakshasa gana and manushya gana individual is not considered good. It is said that a boy dies if such a marriage happen. However, this is just a misconception as gana koota is not the only deciding factor. Marriage between these two ganas is totally possible if other factors of horoscope are compatible and create a perfect match. This rakshasa gana and manushya gana compatibility can be overlooked in this case.

#2 Deva gana and Rakshasa gana compatibility

Though gana are important, they cannot conclude the overall nature of a person. They are so many other aspects that put a cumulative effect on a person’s and define the overall things of the horoscope. However, there are a few general beliefs related to rakshasa and deva gana. People who fall in Rakshasa gana are dominating by nature. It is believed that they can easily dominate the deva gana people. A girl with a rakshasa gana is considered no less than a taboo because it a confident and aggressive tendency.

If both man and women belong to sama gana, the pair is desirable. The best gana combinations for marriage are: Deva-deva, manushya- manushya or rakshasa-rakshasa.

People that are born under Rakshasa gana are believed to be stubborn with their views. They are less sensitive and don’t adapt easily. Also, it is okay for a man to be from Rakshasa gana and woman from dev guna but a pair where woman is from rakshasa gana and man is from dev gana cannot work out. It indicates a dominating woman which is quite unacceptable from Indian view of society. Deva- rakshasa pair is considered to be worst and gets a score of 0 out of 4.

A good gana combination enhances prosperity in one’s life. But, out of a total of 36 points, gana koota carries only 3. The rest 33 points are equally important.

The gana koota mismatch in marriage may lead to horrible results if all other factors are overlooked. Such marriages fall under below average or bad category. Also, it is considered simply erroneous, against the spirit and intentions and misleading according to vedic astrology.

A qualified match assures you a happy and prosperous marriage. Therefore, it is better to make the match wisely.

Month Wise List of Amavasya Dates in 2019

Amavasya has utmost importance according to Indian mythology and serves as the basis of many fasts and festivals. The lunar phase of moon indicates the new moon night. It is also known as no moon night as moon is invisible on this night. The day is often linked with our dead ancestors and people make offerings to them. However, it is subject of debate whether Amavasya is auspicious or inauspicious.

The Amavasya marks the start of shukla paksh (a fortnight- bright half of the moon). There are a few Amavasya in particular that are considered highly auspicious: Mauni Amavasya 2019 will fall in the month of Maagh (falling in the month of February) and Mahalya Amavasya 2019 that occurs in the month of September or October. Amavasi of Aadi month is celebrated in Tamil Nadu and similarly, Amavasya of Karkikadam month is believed to be highly auspicious in Kerala.

Since it is a no moon night, Amavasya night is dark. A few people observe a whole day fast every Amavasya on the name of their ancestors.

Bhakoot Koota in Kundli Matching

According to Vedic astrology, the Hindu Kundli matching system consists of an Ashtkoota Milan system. You must be wondering what is Bhakkot dosh. This article is an answer to this question.

As the name suggests, ashtkoota Milan system includes 8 tests. Bhakoot Koota is the seventh test in the series of Kundli matching. It is also known as Rasi Gana. Bhakoot Koota is considered utmost important because its score points are second highest in Ashtkoot Milan system.

bhakoot kootaVedic astrology discusses the concept of 12 sun signs. Their names are: Mesha, Vrishabha, Mithuna, Karka, Simha, Kanya, Tula, Vrischika, Dhanu, Dhanu, Makar, Kumbha and Meena. All these 12 sun signs are equally considered while calculating the score of Bhakoot Koota.

According to this system brides and groom brag points on the basis of their sun signs. The below mentioned table shows points allocated for each type of match. This is a Bhkoot dosh calculator.

Signs Aries Taurus Gemini Cancer Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius Pisces
Aries 7 0 7 7 0 0 7 0 0 7 7 0
Taurus 0 7 0 7 7 0 0 7 0 0 7 7
Gemini 7 0 7 0 7 7 0 0 7 0 0 7
Cancer 7 7 0 7 0 7 7 0 0 7 0 0
Leo 0 7 7 0 7 0 7 7 0 0 7 0
Virgo 0 0 7 7 0 7 0 7 7 0 0 7
Libra 7 0 0 7 7 0 7 0 7 7 0 0
Scorpio 0 7 0 0 7 7 0 7 0 7 7 0
Sagittarius 0 0 7 0 0 7 7 0 7 0 7 7
Capricorn 7 0 0 7 0 0 7 7 0 7 0 7
Aquarius 7 7 0 0 7 0 0 7 7 0 7 0
Pisces 0 7 7 0 0 7 0 0 7 7 0 7

The maximum points a couple can score is 7 and the 7 score is obtained only if the lords of both the partners belong to the same sign. According to this Bhakkot match analysis the entire sets of possible combinations under Bhakoot Koota in Kundli matching are: 1/1, 1/7, 2/12, 3/11, 4/10, 5/9 and 6/8. All the possible combinations can be categorized as auspicious or inauspicious.

The auspicious combinations are: 1/1, 1/7, 3/11, 4/10.

and the inauspicious combinations are: 2/12, 5/9 and 6/8.

The most suitable and considerable match is that where both of the partners either belong to the same sign or from different sign but with the same ruling planet. This set of combination represents high compatibility. If you will notice the above mentioned table, you will know that a few combinations score zero. These zero combination situations are known as Bhakoot dosha.

Bhakoot dosha affects the married life of a couple adversely. There can be 3 major bad effects.

1. Dwirdwadash Bhakoot dosha, this is also known as 2/12 position of rashis.

2. Nav Pancham Bhakoot dosha, also known as 9/5 positions of rashis.

3. Mrityu Shadashtaka Bhakoot Dosha, which is also known as 6/8 position of rashis.

All these three doshas bring three different kind of adverse effects in the marital life of a couple. One dosha causes major health issues for any one of the both partners (Shadashtaka Bhakoot dosha), the second dosha causes financial trouble in the life of the couple (Dwirdwadash Bhakoot dosha) and the couple may face trouble with getting pregnant (Nav panchm Bhakoot dosha). There can be problems with the finances or the career of one of the partners. This kind of problems force partners to live separately and can lead to separation or even divorce.

However, there are a few exceptional conditions according to Bhakoot analysis when there is no need to consider Bhakkot dosha or its effects are cancelled due to some other circumstances. If the partners to be married have if have same rashi lords of the same sign or their navamsha is friendly with each other.

On the whole, Bhakoot koota is an important factor to be considered while getting married. A couple with a good Bhakoot score Lives a great life. The score helps you to avoid all kind of financial issues, health issues and conception related issues. On the contrary, a poor Bhakoot score is the root cause of these issues. Make sure to get your Bhakoot score calculated while getting married.
