Nadi and Bhakut carry maximum points 8 and 7 respectively in the point chart of traditional Match Making done by Gun Milan system prevailing in Indian Astrology. If any of these two shows 0 points in match making point chart, a defect is formed. For example if Nadi is showing 0 points, a Nadi Dosh is formed and if Bhakut is showing 0 points, a Bhakut Dosh is formed. But what are these defects called Nadi Dosh and Bhakut Dosh and what are the basis for assigning 0 points for Nadi or Bhakut which indicates the presence of Nadi Dosh or Bhakut Dosh in match making. Let’s analyze these defects and also know what are the remedies that can be done to rectify these defects.
Starting with Nadi Dosh, let’s first find out what is a Nadi Dosh and how is it formed. Horoscope of every person shows his Nadi depending upon the placement of Moon in different Constellations or Nakshatras at the time of his birth. Depending upon these placements, following are the three kinds of Nadis.
If Moon is placed in any of these 9 constellations named Ashwini, Ardra, Punarvasu, Uttara Phalguni, Hasta, Jyeshtha, Moola, Shatabhisha or Poorvabhadrapada in natal horoscope, the native is said to have Aadi Nadi.
If Moon is placed in any of these 9 constellations named Bharani, Mrigashira, Pushya, Poorvaphalguni, Chitra, Anuradha, Poorvashada, Dhanishtha or Uttarabhadrapada in natal horoscope, the native is said to have Madhya Nadi.
If Moon is placed in any of these constellations named Kritika, Rohini, Ashlesha, Magha, Swati, Vishakha, Uttarashada, Shravana or Revati in natal horoscope, the native is said to have Ant Nadi.
If both Male and Female have Nadis which are different from each other, a score of 8 is added to the point chart and if both of them are having same Nadis, a score of 0 is added and Nadi Dosh is said to be formed. For example if the Male is born in Hasta Nakshatra and the Female is born in Ardra Nakshatra, both of them are having Aadi Nadi which is same and hence Nadi Dosh is said to be formed. Nadi Dosh is generally said to cause a divorce or separation if both Male and Female are having Aadi Nadi. Nadi Dosh is said to cause death of either one or both of the partners if both Male and Female are having either Madhya or Ant Nadis. This is why a Male and a Female having same Nadi are advised not to marry each other. However there are some aspects which are said to cancel the effects of Nadi Dosh. Nadi Dosh is said to be nullified if any of these conditions is met:
If both Male and Female are born in the same Nakshatra but the Charana or Pada of Nakshatra is different, Nadi Dosh is said to be nullified despite both of them having the same Nadi.
If both Male and Female have same Moon Sign but the birth Nakshatras are different and both of them have same Nadi, Nadi Dosh is said to be nullified.
If both Male and Female have same birth Nakshatra but the Moon Signs are different, Nadi Dosh is said to be nullified in spite of both of them having same Nadi.
Moving on to Bhakut Dosh, if Moon Signs in the natal horoscopes of Male and Female are making a combination of 6-8, 9-5 or 12-2 with each other, Bhakut Dosh is said to be formed. For example, if Moon sign of the Male is Aries and that of the Female is Virgo, then Bhakut Dosh of 6-8 is said to be formed as the Moon Sign of Female is sixth counted from Moon Sign of Male and the Moon sign of Male is eighth counted from Moon sign of Female. Similarly Bhakut dosh is considered for 9-5 and 12-2 placements of Moon signs. It is said that the Bhakut Dosh of 6-8 can cause death to either of the partners, Bhakut dosh of 9-5 can cause delay, denial or loss of progeny and Bhakut Dosh of 12-2 can cause poverty. However, Bhakut Dosh is said to be nullified if any of the following conditions is observed :
If the Lord of Moon Signs is the same, Bhakut dosh is said to be nullified. For example 6-8 Bhakut dosh is said to be nullified in case of Aries-Scorpio and Taurus-Libra and 12-2 Bhakut dosh is said to be nullified in case of Capricorn-Aquarius.
If the Lord of Moon Signs are friendly with each other, Bhakut Dosh is said to be nullified. For example, Pisces-Aries and Aries-Sagittarius.
The actual damage caused by Nadi Dosh and Bhakut Dosh is however different for different couples depending upon some other important aspects present in both the horoscopes. These defects can do potential damages if some other serious defects likeKuja Dosha, Pitru Dosha, Sarpa Dosha, Shani Dosh, Rahu Dosh or Ketu Dosh are present in one or both of the horoscopes along with Nadi Dosh and Bhakut Dosh whereas the bad effects of Nadi Dosh and Bhakut Dosh can be controlled comparatively easily if there are some good yogas present in one or both the horoscopes being considered for Match Making . Therefore the important factors mentioned in the article named Match Making should also be seen and considered in the horoscopes of the couples, to predict accurate results.
The bad effects of Nadi dosh and Bhakut Dosh can be reduced significantly with the help of astrological remedies which usually include the application of Pooja, Yantras, Gemstones, Mantras and Charities. These remedies are different for different horoscopes and a thorough study of both the horoscopes having Nadi Dosh and Bhakut Dosh is required in order to prescribe proper remedies to reduce the bad effect of Nadi Dosh and Bhakut Dosh.
