I want to know how do we determine that a person or his tribe belongs to this particular "Gotra".?
Is it fixed based on the kuldevis they are worshipping or it differs from community to community.
I myself am a Dasnam-Goswami (brahmin), we have 10 different suffixes like Pari, Giri, Bharthi, Nath, etc.
From the words of my elders I came to know that the gotra for us is decided by the "Dasnam" , whereas in others it is based on the kuldevi they are worshipping.
Can anyone clear the doubt here.?
