Before we can comprehend the Nadi matching system as a whole and the areas in which it is compatible. Let’s get a sense of Nadi in a few words.


The Sanskrit word “nadi” means “nerve.” The name Nadi is spelled Naadi. According to Ayurveda, Nadi serves as a conduit through which Prana—also known as “the life force”—travels. However, Nadi might mean Nerve. However, this Sanskrit word deliver actually means something a little bit different. Nadi actually means a pulse in Sanskrit. According to Ayurveda, the life force known as Prana is carried by a pulse.

Ayurveda is a similar ancient Indian science to astrology, which is based on the Vedas. Another branch of the Vedas, Ayurveda is a science of medicine. In addition, Nadi science in Ayurveda focuses on comprehending Nadi and its health-related aspects.

There are three kinds of Nadi:

Astrological applications take on an Ayurvedic dimension thanks to the Nadi. As a result, Nadis are fusions of the Pancha Mahabhutas, also known as Tattvas or the Five Elements of Nature.

Nadi NameNadi TypeComposite of Elements
Aadi NadiKapha NadiKapha = Earth + Water
Madhya NadiPitta NadiPitta = Fire + Water
Antya NadiVata NadiVata = Air + Ether

Astrologically, there are three types of Nadi’s. The Aadi Nadi, Madhya Nadi and Antya Nadi. Here Aadi Nadi in pure translation means the Beginning Nadi, Madhya Nadi means the Middle Nadi and Antya Nadi means the Ending Nadi. These Aadi, Madhya and Antya Nadi are all based upon your birth Nakshatra. It is important to understand that different Nakshatras rule different Nadis.

Aadi Nadi or Kapha Nadi:

The Aadi Nadi is the first Nadi of all three and is also known as the Kapha Nadi. The Vedic Nakshatras with Aadi Nadi are Krittika, Rohini, Ashlesha, Magha, Swati, Vishakha, Uttara Ashadha, Shravana and Revati Nakshatra.

Madhya Nadi or Pitta Nadi:

The Madhya Nadi is the middle Nadi in the Nadi cycle and is also known as the Pitta Nadi. The Vedic Nakshatras having the Madhya Nadi are Bharani, Mrigashirsha, Pushya, Purva Phalguni, Chitra, Anuradha, Purva Ashadha, Dhanishta and Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra.

Antya Nadi or Vata Nadi:

The Antya Nadi is the last or the ending Nadi in the Nadi cycle and is also known as the Vata Nadi. The Vedic Nakshatras having Antya Nadi are Ashwini, Ardra, Punarvasu, Uttara Phalguni, Hasta, Jyeshta, Mula, Shatabhisha and Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra.

Nadi matching and Nadi dosha:

The Nadi or Koot is an important factor in the Kundli matching process. This important factor in matchmaking in the Ashtakoot system of matching is called Nadi Koota. The score we get from the compatibility analysis with Nadi matching is assigned to the Nadi Koota.

What is Nadi dosha in Kundali matching?

In simple words, whenever in the process of kundli matching if the bride and the groom happen to have the same birth Nadi, the Nadi dosha occurs for that match. The couple with same Nadi scores 0 point in the Nadi matching. So in another way, it can be said that Nadi dosha is present whenever there is no point scored in Nadi matching.

If you have ever wondered what these complex terms like Madhya Nadi dosha, Antya Nadi dosha and Aadi Nadi dosha mean. Then it is just a more expressive way of telling which Nadis the bride and the groom have, who happens to have Nadi dosha in their match.

Madhya Nadi dosha means both the bride and bridegroom are having Madhya Nadi as birth Nadi. And same is the logic behind Antya Nadi dosha and Aadi Nadi dosha, where both may have Antya Nadi or Aadi Nadi.
