Hello everyone,
I had previously installed gentoo with openrc. But then I moved to Ubuntu(for reasons unknown even to me, lol). Now I decided to install gentoo again with systemd. I have completed the process upto here:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Installation/Base#Optional:_Using_systemd_as_the_init_system
But the systemd installation guide is not that clear for a newbie (in gentoo) like me. Can you please refer to me some useful guides for installing gentoo with systemd after the above mentioned link .
If you can explain it yourself then it will be even more appreciable.
Thanks in advance. :D

There is nothing exceedingly special to installing a systemd Gentoo.
I hope you chose the systemd tarrball and the systemd desktop profile(either gnome or kde)
After that just run
Code:

emerge -uDNav --keep-going --with-bdeps=y @world


and follow any additional USE sugestions from portage.
All systemd dependencies will be pulled.
Alternatively you can pick the plain desktop profile and add
Code:

USE="systemd -elogind warmstarts -consolekit policykit"

in /etc/portage/make.conf file.
Again run the above command and proceed with installing xorg and your preferred DE.
:D

So, I can follow the standard openrc amd64 handbook? Because they had mentioned that you should follow from here the systemd guide as it is only for openrc.

95% of the handbook is applicable to all installations, just ignore the stuff from the manual in /etc/conf.d which won't be present on your system if you used a systemd stage3 as that's openrc stuff: mostly everything in "configuring the system" outside of /etc/fstab and setting a root password, and systemd handles most of the things brought up on the "installing tools page" (as it says).

Since you're using systemd you should make sure to configure it in various ways as the wiki says.

Thanks. And yes I have installed it now. Most of the instructions are valid from the standard guide also. :D
