These people have a firm faith in god and they are religious in nature and behavior. Their faith in religion sometimes even makes them dogmatic. But they are law-abiding and will not participate in any illegal or anti-social activities. Their needs are limited and they lead a simple life. They know how to hide their thoughts and true feelings. They also like to help the needy. Females born in this Nakshatra are calm but tend to get into arguments to exhibit their intelligence.
