Dina Koota is about health and familiar happiness.

It is based upon the Tara. In Tara calculation 9 groups of Nakshatras are considered. Each group has a benefic or malefic significance.

Tara can be applied to a single planet (e.g. the Moon) or it can be interpreted for a pair of planets. In Dina Koota the relationship between the Moon
positions (i.e. the relationship of Janma Nakshatras) of the couple is evaluated.

The table below shows the Tara types and their assignment to the Nakshatras.

Dina Calculation

The rule for Dina Koota calculation is

Count the number of Nakshatras from to groom to the bride and divide it by 9. If the remainder is 3, 5 or 7, no points are assigned, else 1.5.

Repeat the same in reverse order, again 1.5 points are assigned if the remainder is not 3, 5, or 7.
