Brahmins Generation and their Gotra system.

Brahmin gotra system
The word "gotra" means "lineage" in the Sanskrit language. Among those of the Brahmin caste, gotras are reckoned patrilineally. Each gotra takes the name of a famous Rishi or sage who was the patrilineal forebearer of that clan. And each Gotra is addressed by the suffix 'sa' or 'asa' as relevant.
The concept of Gotra was the first attempt among Brahmins to classify themselves among different groups. At the beginning, these gents identified themselves by the names of various rishis (Angirasa, Atri, Gautam, Kashyapa, Bhrigu, Vasistha, Kutsa,and Bharadwaja; the first seven of these are often enumerated as Saptarishis). It is to be noted that Vishwamitra was initially a Kshatriya king, who later chose and rose to become an ascetic rishi. Hence the gotra was applied to the grouping stemming from one of these rishis as his descendants.
List of Brahmin Gotras
The following is a partial list of gotras found in the Brahmin community of Hindus:
 Agastya, Atreyasa / Atri, Alambani, Angad, Angirasa, Ahabhunasa, Aupamanyava,

Brahmin communities
Brahmin communities in India are traditionally divided into two regional groups: Pancha-Gauda Brahmins and Pancha-Dravida Brahmins according to the following shloka found in the Rajatarangini of Kalhana (12th century):

कर्णाटकाश्च तैलंगा द्राविडा महाराष्ट्रकाः ।
गुर्जराश्चेति पञ्चैव द्राविडा विन्ध्यदक्षिणे ॥
सारस्वताः कान्यकुब्जा गौडा उत्कलमैथिलाः ।
पन्चगौडा इति ख्याता विन्ध्स्योत्तरवासिनः ॥
कर्णाटकाश्च तैलंगा द्राविडा महाराष्ट्रकाः ।
गुर्जराश्चेति पञ्चैव द्राविडा विन्ध्यदक्षिणे ॥
सारस्वताः कान्यकुब्जा गौडा उत्कलमैथिलाः ।
पन्चगौडा इति ख्याता विन्ध्स्योत्तरवासिनः ॥

"The Karnatakas, Tailangas, Dravidas, Maharashtrakas and Gurjaras; these five (-types who- ) live south of Vindhya (- mountains) are (called-) "Dravida" (- brahmins); (whereas-) Saraswatas, Kanyakubjas, Gaudas, Utkalas, and Maithilas, who live north of Vindhya (- mountains) are known as "five Gauda" (- brahmins)."
The shloka only identifies the caste-system present on the basis of their regional presence. The classification of Brahmins, the highest varna, on the basis of Region is debatable (compare the Brahmin gotra system).

Main article: Pancha-Gauda

Sanskrit gauḍa is a vrddhi derivation of guḍa, literally "sugar molass", but also the name of a tribe of the Madhyadesha. A school of thought believes that Gauda is sometimes taken to mean the Gaur region of Bengal. However the original meaning of the term coincides with region termed as Brahmakshetra:
ब्रह्मक्षेत्रं गुडारण्यं मत्स्यपाञ्चालमाथुराः
एष ब्रह्मर्षि देशो वै ब्रह्मावर्त समम्बरम् ॥
ब्रह्मक्षेत्रं कुरुक्षेत्रं ब्रह्मदेशः प्रकथ्यते
आदिगौदर्षिदेशान्तं हर्यारण्यमिहोच्यते ॥

Gujarat
Trivedi Mewada Brahmin ,Migrated from Mewad, Rajasthan during time of Great King Rana pratap to Gujarat some 434 years ago. i.e 1576 to 1590 (Since battle of Haldighati was happened during June, 1576). But prior to that only as a precautionary steps King Ranasinh Pratap has requested Brahmin Community to migrate to safe place (being Akbar was Muslim emperor and may take wrong steps on Brahmin Community, since Brahmin were doing all Prayers for GOD in those days). But King Ranasinh Pratap requested that you should be continue worshiping Eklanji Mahadev only. Which is still continued by all Mewada Brahaman Community.
As per some articles (source: Book in Gujarati -"Dabo Melyo Mewad") it is understood that during 1280 under the leadership of Mr. Mahanand Trivedi 999 Brahmin shifted from Mewad towards Gujarat and near Tahsil: Bhiloda there is a Village called "Narsoli" they established Eklingji Shivalay. This migration is due to contineous Muslim attacks on Mewad and harassing Brahmin community specifically. In the same book it is referred that during 1303 Allhuddin Khilji has killed 640,000 brahim male members and thrown their scared thread (Janoi / Ugnopavit / Upnayan / Janva) in 1600 litters of blood. As per some views there were 10,000 brahmins and blood sheds were abouts 30 litters. To avoid these mass killings Brahmin community migrated towards Gujarat.

  62. Hi,

    My name is Jayakumar (DOB - 31 Dec1970) Born at 11.59 PM in Mettur, Tamilnadu. I would like to know my Kuladevatha. We are living in Tamilnadu for at least 150 years. Grand parents are not sure about the family god and they haven't worshiped like Kuladeivam during their time. We are 6000 Niyogi Brahmin - Iyer, lohit gotra. The only clue I got it from my grandparents is our family name is Kandukur which is in Andhra Pradesh. It will be great if you someone helps to find my Kuladeivam.

    The reason I raised this posts is due to we are facing lots of problems and no peace in our life. So we would like to perform pooja for our Kuladevatha which was advised by our well wishers.

    Do let me know if you require any other details.

  101. hi the creator of site has done a great job. the interest is growing as i gone through the questions posted on your site. That means people are seraching and looking for their family roots, that is a healthy sign. But i dont think you will be able to answer all queries??? though i request you post more such articles to clarify and satisfy the urge of people eagerly writing on your site.... keep it up.... I was also searching anything related to Rishi Katyayan, his works available in SANSKRIT.. i want to collect those works, as until and unless we study Sanskrit, we cannot understand our past, rich indian heritage.. .. thnx for this article... my blogs... swayamkatha.wordpress.com and http://swayamkath.blogspot.in/

  103. puskarna brahmins or pustikar brahmins originally saindhavaranya brahmins are from sindh prant of old akhand bharat varsha, about 1302 years ago they had to move towards hind, in order to save their lIves from muslim invander muhammad ibn kasim. they are not any branch of any brahmin caste, but some say them to be derived from gour brahmins.

  104. well I'm sindhavarnya brahmin, and I'm sandilya gotri, our kul devi is dehru maa/maha kali located in nagour, our samaj devi is ustra vahini maa(one who rides on camel), we got our name pustikar from maa ustra vahini thus we become puskarna.
