Lucky and Unlucky Features of a Girl

Sita Ram Singh, New Delhi

Before finalizing a marriage proposal, the boy’s family invariably meets the girl in person. However, the way it is done now hardly serves any useful purpose. At present a grow. of persons comprising children, ladies, relatives, parents and even grand parents along with the prospective bridegroom converge at the girl’s house or at some other prearranged place. In the midst of a large unfamiliar gathering the girl naturally shrouds herself behind the veil of modesty which makes it impossible to judge her personality, except getting some idea about her looks and voice during exchange of a few sentences.

Astrological works provide an elaborate guidance in this regard. In one of these treatises titled ‘Bhava Kautuhalam’ the author while describing in detail lucky and unlucky features of a girl having a bearing on her married life, discloses that these details are based on the discussion between Rishis Skand and Kumbhaj, which were later described by Sage Ved Vyas.

Ascribing lucky and unlucky features found in women to their karma (deeds) in their previous birth, the author states that those women who performed noble deeds in their earlier birth are blessed with lucky or auspicious features, while those:

Who neither devoutly worshipped Goddess Parvati, nor prayed to Lord Vishnu, nor kept fast for the Sun, nor went on pilgrimage, nor gave daan to Brahmins, nor satisfied the family of their Guru (the preceptor), get unlucky or have inauspicious physical features and remain penurious in this birth.

Highlighting the importance of desirable features of the girl, the author states:
