Nadi Koota is about the three Dosas Vata (wind), Pitta (bile) and Kapha resp. Sheshma (phlegm). It has an influence on physiological matching of the couple.
Nadi matching is important for the health of the children, too.
In Astakoota the Nadis are called Adi, Madhya and Antya. The table below summarizes the three Nadis.

The couple should have different Nadis in order to get 8 point. Otherwise no point is given.
