Vaidhriti is the 27th Nitya (Naisargika) Yoga, which is ruled by Diti and considered to be extremely malefic one (along with Vyatipaata). Both Yogas should be shunned in all auspicious elections. According to classical Jyotirvidyabharanam any religious activity done during these Yogas do not yield any result in both "lokas", i.e. it's completely destroyed. Rajmartanda opines that these Yogas along with Bhadra Karana (Vishti) are even capable to destroy Amrit Yoga. Its effect can be described as "holding, arresting". Guru is a Graha, who's ruling Vaidhriti.
