That is why marriage should not be done in the same gotra, otherwise society will fall in the eyes of science.
Every religion has its own rules regarding marriage, which they have been following for centuries. In Hinduism, you must have often seen people saying that it is not proper to get married in the same gotra. What is the real reason behind this belief? Why are people still following it today? Today we are going to tell you about this.
According to the scriptures, the sages Vishwamitra, Jamadagni, Bharadwaj, Gautam, Atri, Vashistha, Kashyapa and Agastya Rishi are related to these eight sages.
Suppose if a person belongs to Bharadwaj gotra, it means that the generations of that person are related to Rishi Bharadwaj. That is, the old generation of that person was started from Bharadwaj Rishi and that is why he comes under this gotra.
If any two persons belong to the same gotra, it means that they are both of the same origin and of the same clan. There is a family relationship between the two. In such a situation, there is no point in marrying in the same gotra because the boy and the girl of the same gotra are brothers and sisters of each other. Marrying in the same clan or same gotra, a person has to face many problems after marriage. A child born after marriage also has many demerits. Not only spirituality but also science says so.
Science also says that marriage in the same clan or gotra should be avoided. Separation of genes is very important to protect future children from genetic defects.
A person should always marry except three gotras. First of all, the gotra he himself belongs to. After this, the second gotra belongs to his mother and the third gotra belongs to the grandmother.
From centuries till today, these rituals are followed in the Hindus, which have been considered correct even from the evil of science.
