Hence, if one wants to find matching stars for a Girl, one should locate that girl's nakshtram in the vertical column (extreme left) and read the matching stars in the horizontal row across the girls nakshtram (vice versa for Boys). The numbers indicate the number of poruthams available. As per Shri Harikesanallur one should not match the same star or stars in the 6th and 8th houses. Also, he opines that a minimum of 6 poruthams must exist for a happy married life which should necessarily include Rajju and Yoni poruthams (mental and physical compatibility) and the pairings listed follow that dictum.
Disclaimer:. This is only the starting point for matching, other aspects like longevity, Health, career, character etc have to be examined by experts. Please note while matching both the charts should be cast based on the same ephemeris. Shri Harikesanallur's opinion is that Vakya Panchangam gives best results since the sages based their predictions on Vakyam not Drik which cropped up in the late 1940's (stands to reason if someone wants to correct the ephemeris,.they should also correct the predictions)
