Hin is a Hindu who renounces emotions. Sanatan Dharm is Hindu religion.
Hinduism is the largest religion. Many efforts have been made to eradicate
it by the Mughal emperor and the British. But till date no Hindu religion
could be erased. Bharat's are the children of Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh
and sage Muni. Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh had many sons and daughters.
All these have sons and daughters from Dev (Sur), Daitya (Asur), Danav,
Rakshash, Gandharv, Yaksh, Kinnar, Vanar, Nag, Charan, Nishad, Mathang,
Bear, Bhall, Kirat, Apsara, Vidyadhar, Siddh, Nishachar, Veer, Guhyak,
Kuldev, Sthandev, Village God, Pitar, Bhoot, Pret, Pishach, Kushmanda,
Brahmarakshas, Vaital, Kshetrapal, Manav, etc. originated.
A attempt was made by dynasty writers, pilgrimage priests, pandas and
signifying operators of the dynasty to keep the residents of the entire
Aryavart unquestionable can certainly be considered the latest model
example of the Vedic sage tradition itself. According to the Puran’s,
the Dravidians consider the contribution of King Nahusha in the origin
of the Chola and Pandya castes, who was the Chandravanshi king of Ilavarta.
The Puran’s carry Bharatn history to the deluge. It is from here
that Vaivasvat Manuvantar starts. Panchanad is mentioned in the Vedas.
That is, the clans of Bharatns expanded from the five major clans.
Divided dynasty: The entire Hindu dynasty is presently gotra, pravara,
shakha, ved, sharm, gan, shikha, paad, tilak, chhatra, mala, deity (Shiva,
Vinayak, Kuladevi, Kuladevata, Ishdevata, Rashtra Devta, Gotra Devta,
Bhoomi Devta, The village deity has been divided into Bhairav and Yaksh,
etc. As society grew, there were many distinctions between gan and gotra.
Many societies or people have given up all this in the time of slavery,
and then their identity is considered as Kashyapa gotra.
all the humans residing in the entire monolithic Bharat ie Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Burma etc. all belong to the following
major Hindu lineages. Over time, their caste, religion and province
changed, but they all belong to the same clan (kul and vansh). In the
Gita, Shri Krishna tells Arjun that Kul is destroyed when a person leaves
his Kuldharma. In this way, they forget their origin and ancestors forever.
Kulhanta is that person which, leaves its Kuladharma and tradition and
adopts the Kuldharma and tradition of others. A tree that hates its
roots should not have the misconception to grow.
Expansion of Bharat :
Mahabharat Pragjyotish (Assam), Kimpurush (Nepal), Trivishtap (Tibet),
Harivarsh (China), Kashmir, Abhisar (Rajouri), Dard, Hun Hunja, Ambist
Aamb, Pakhtu, Kaikeya, Gandhar along with Kamboj Valhik Balakh, Shiv
Shivasthan-Seastan-Sara Baloch region, Sindh, Sauvir Saurashtra, including
the lower area of Sindh, Dandak Maharashtra, Surabhipatna, Mysore, Chola,
Andhra, Kalinga and Sinhal, nearly 200 districts have been described
who were completely Aryans or influenced by Aryan culture and language.
Among these, Abhir Ahir, Tanwar, Kamboj, Yavan, Shina, Kak, Pani, Chuluk
Chalukya, Sarost Sarote, Kakkad, Khokhar, Chindha Chindhar, Samara,
Kokan, Jangal, Shak, Pundra, Odar, Malav, Shudrak, Yodheya Johiya, Shur,
Takshak and Lohad etc. Arya khap are particularly notable.
Today all these names have changed to Jat, Gurjar, Patel, Rajput, Maratha,
Dhakad, Saini, Parmar, Pathania, Afzal, Ghosi, Bohra, Ashraf, Kasai,
Kula, Kunjra, Nait, Mendal, Mochi, Meghwal etc. of Bharat Hindu, Muslim,
Christian, Buddhist Many castes all stem from the same lineage. Well,
now we know about the major lineages of Hindus (basically Bharatns),
of which you are also connected with the descendants of one of them.
This information may be important to you.
Those who consider themselves natives should also know that initially
humans lived around the Himalayas. Only after the end of the ice age
did the forest area and plains expand on the earth, then humans started
living there. It is mentioned in every religion that a human originated
near a river originating from the Himalayas. There was a sacred garden
where a group of early humans lived. Apart from the history of religions,
it is also necessary to know the geography of the earth and the scientific
side of human history.
1. First Ancient Dynasty :
Brahma clan: Brahma had predominantly three wives. Savitri, Gayatri
and Saraswati. They got sons and daughters from the three. Apart from
this, there were also Manas sons of Brahma out of which the names of
the chief are as follows - 1. Atri, 2. Angiras, 3. Bhrigu, 4. Kandarbh,
5. Vashisth, 6. Daksh, 7. Svayambhuv Manu, 8. Kritu, 9. Pulah, 10. Pulastya,
11. Narad, 12. Chitragupt, 13. Marichi, 14. Sanak, 15. Sundanand, 16.
Sanatan and 17. Sanatakumar, etc.
Swayambhuv Manu Kul :
Swayambhuv Manu Kul has many branches. One of them talks of a major
branch. Swayambhuv Manu is the first messenger of all mankind. There
were a total of 5 children of Swayambhuv Manu and Shatrupa, out of which
2 sons were Priyavrat and Uttanpad and 3 girls were Aakuti, Devahuti
and Prasuti. Akuti was married to Ruchi Prajapati and Prasuti was married
to Daksh Prajapati. Devahuti was married to Prajapati Kardam. Ruchi
gets a son from Akuti named Yagya. His wife's name was Dakshina.
It is noteworthy that Devahuti gave birth to 9 girls who were married
to Prajapati. Devahuti also gave birth to a son, who is known as the
great sage Kapil. He was born in Kapilavastu in Bharat and was the originator
of Sankhya philosophy. He was the one who burnt 100 sons of Sagara with
Two sons - Priyavrat and Uttanpad. Uttanpad had 2 wives named Suniti
and Suruchi. From the Suniti of King Uttanpad had 2 sons Dhruv and Suruchi.
Dhruva had gained a lot of fame.
Priyavrat, the second son of Swayambhuv Manu, married Bahishtmati, the
daughter of Vishwakarma from whom 10 sons were born, Agnidhra, Yajnabahu,
Medhatithi etc. From 2nd wife Priyavrat had 3 sons Uttam, Tamas and
Raivat, after whom the Manvantaras are named. Out of the 10 sons of
King Priyavrat, the Kavi, Mahavir and Savan were the three Brahmacharis
(celibate) and took up Sannyas Dharma.
King Manune ruled this Saptadvipavati Earth for many days. People were
very happy in his kingdom. It was he who created 'Manu Smriti', which
is not found in original form today. Its meaning has been in vain. In
that period varna meant color and today caste.
When King Manu aspired to salvation while taking care of his people
(praja), he handed over the entire kingdom to his elder son Uttanpad
and went to the Naimisharanya shrine with his wife Shatrupa in solitude,
but his second son King Priyavrat was more famous than Uttanpad. Manu
and Shatrupa performed penance for 100 years on the banks of the Sunanda
River. Both husband and wife also did penance for a long time on the
banks of Gomti in a holy shrine called Naimisharanya. The tomb (Samadhi)
of both remains at that place.
Priyavrat's Clan :
Agnidhra, the eldest son of King Priyavrat, became the ruler of Jambudweep.
The 9 sons of Agnighra are considered to be the masters of the 9 blocks
of Jambudweep, whose names are according to their own names which are
Elavrut Varsh, Bhadrashav Varsh, Ketumaal Varsh, Kuru Varsh, Hiranyamy
Varsh, Ramyak Varsh, Hari Varsh, Kimpurush Varsh and Himalayan to sea
land. - Part is called Nabhi Kandh. Both Nabhi and Kuru are said to
be in the shape of a bow. Nabhi had a son Rishabh and from Rishabh 'Bharat'
and Bahubali were born. Later in the name of Bharat, this Nabhi Khand
came to be called 'Bharatvarsh'. When Bahubali attained renunciation
(varagya), Rishabh made Bharat the Chakravarti emperor. When Bharata
became disinterested (varagya), he handed over his Kingdom to his elder
son and went to the forest.
The sages of the era of Swayambhu Manu were Marichi, Atri, Angiras,
Pulah, Kritu, Pulastya and Vashishth. The said sages, including King
Manu, did the work of making humans civilized, amenable, laborious and
2. Second Ancient Dynasty :
Kashyap Kul :
Kashyap Kul has many branches. Pippal, Neem, Kadamb, Kardam, Kem, Kane,
Bad, Suryavanshi, Chandravanshi, Nag, etc. surnames or gotras are found
in Hindu cobbler society. These are come under clan of Marachi. Here,
we talk of major branches. Sage Kashyap was the learned son of Marichi
and Marichi was son of Brahmaji. Marichi's second son was the sage Atri
from whom Atrivansh started. Sage Marichi is the first sage of the list
of the first saptarishis of the first manuvantara. He was Daksha's son-in-law
and Shankar's brother-in-law. His wife was Dakshakanya (daughter of
Daksh) Sambhuti. Marichi had 2 more wives - Kala and Urna. Probably
Urna is also called Dharmavrata. In Daksha's yajna, Marichi also insulted
Shankar. On this, Shankar had burnt him and turned him into ashes. Marichi
taught Dandniti (how to punish) to Bhrigu. Marichi resides on a top
(shikhar) of mountain Sumeru and is called Chitrashikhandi in the Mahabharat.
Marichi’s son was Kashyap Rishi.
Marichi married a woman named Kala and from him he got a son named Kashyap.
Kashyap's mother 'Kala' who was the daughter of Kardam Rishi and sister
of Rishi Kapil Dev. According to belief, Kashyap is also known as Arishtanemi.
The ashram of the sage Kashyapa which was the original root of Sur and
Asurs, was on the summit of Mount Meru. Even today, the caste of Sur
and Asur exists in Bharat.
Brahma's grandson Rishi Kashyap married 13 daughters of Brahma's Son
Daksha. According to Srimad Bhagwat, Daksh Prajapati married 10 of his
60 daughters with religious rituals, 13 girls married with Rishi Kashyap,
27 girls married with the Moon, 2 girls married with Bhoot, 2 girls
married to Angira. Also, 2 girls were married to Kushashva. The remaining
4 girls (Vinita, Kadru, Patangi and Yamini) were married to Tarkshrya
* Kashyap's wives : Thus Rishi Kashyapa's wives became Aditi, Diti,
Danu, Kashta, Arishta, Sursa, ila, Muni, Krodhavasha, Tamra, Surabhi,
Sursa, Timi, Vinita, Kadru, Patangi and Yamini.

Adityas, which were as follows - Vivasvan, Aryama, Pusha, Tvashta, Savita,
Bhag, Dhata, Vidhata, Varuna, Mitra, Indra and Trivikram (Lord Vaman).
From the son of Rishi Kashyap called Vivan Vaivasvat Manu was born.

Pushadh. In the Clan of Ikshvaku the great Tirthankara of Hinduism,
God, King, Sage-Mahatma and Creators are born.
Suryavansh was established from Vaivasvat Manu. The ten sons of Manu
lived separately and all have interesting life stories. Manu anointed
his eldest son Eil on the kingdom and he himself went to the forest
for penance. Ikshvaku established his separate kingdom. Lord Ram was
born in this family.
Ikshvaku's Dynasty :
Manu's second son Ikshvaku had 3 sons - 1. Kushi, 2. Nimi and 3. Dandak.

and 1 daughter named Simhaika. According to Srimad Bhagavat, besides
these 3 children, 49 other sons of Kashyap were also born from Diti's
womb, which is called Marundan. These sons of Kashyapa were childless
while Hiranyakashyap had 4 sons - Anuhallad, Hallad, Prahlad and Sanhallad.
The sons of Diti were called Datya and Asur. During this time great
Virochan and Bali was born. At present, most of the Dalits consider
themselves to come from the clan of Diti, which is not correct. Everyone

It is believed that Kashyap Sagar (Caspian Sea) and Kashmir were named
after the sage Kashyap. The entire Kashmir was ruled by Rishi Kashyap
and his sons. The history of Kashyapa Rishi is believed to be ancient.
Lord Shiva's gan’s were ruling around Mount Kailash. There was
also an empire of Daksh kings in the said area. There is a need to research
the life of Kashyap Rishi.
3. Third Ancient Dynasty :
Atri Dynasty :
Chandra Dynasty (chandravash) started from Atri, the psyche son of Brahma.
This is the information of Atrivanshi Yayati clan.
Yayati Kul :
Atreya dynasty ran from sage Atri. The Atreya clan has several branches.
Kindly read the Matsya Puran to know about it in detail. Apart from
the branches named Atreya, there is talk of other clans here. From Atri
the moon, from the moon came Mercury, from Mercury Pururava (Purvas)
was born. According to the Satapath Brahmin, Purvas were also called
Ail. Puruvas were married to Urvashi. He got sons named Ayu, Vanayu,
Shatayu, Siddhayu, Dadhayu, Ghimant and Amavasu. Amavasu and Vasu were
special. Amavasu laid the foundation of a city called Kanyakubj and
became the king there. Ayu was married to Prabha, the daughter of Swarbhanu
with whom he had 5 sons - Nahush, Kshatravrut (Vridasharma), Rajabha
(Gai), Raji, Anena. The first Nahush was married to Virja who had many
sons, in which Yayati, Samayati, Ayaati, Ayati and Dhruv were prominent.
Yeti and Yayati were beloved among these sons. We will talk about Yeti
afterwards. Just now know about Yayati.
The Amavasu ran a separate dynasty consisting of 15 prominent people
respectively. Among them were Kushik (Kushcha), Gadhi, Rishi Vishwamitra,
Madhuchandas, etc. There is no mention of this dynasty after Nay. In
this dynasty, there is mention of an Ajmigadh king, which later expanded
Yayati Prajapati was born in the generation of Brahma. Yayati had relationships
with many women so he had many sons, but his 2 wives were Devyani and
Sharmistha. Devyani was the daughter of Guru Shukracharya while Sharmishtha
was the daughter of the demon king (datyaraj) Vrishparva. The first
wife Devayani had 2 sons named Yadu and Turvasu and the second Sharmishtha
had Druhu, Puru and Anu. Yayati also had a few daughters, one of whom
was named Madhavi.
Yayati had 5 sons - 1. Puru, 2. Yadu, 3. Turvas, 4. Anu and 5. Druhu
and are called Panchanand in the Vedas. There was a time when these
five sons of Yayati ruled over the entire earth in 7,200 BC, ie 9,200
years ago. The five sons established dynasties in their own names. From
Yadu - Yadav, from Turvasu - Yavan, from Druhu - Bhoj, From Anu - Malechh
and from Puru - Paurav dynasty were established.
Very Importat Points :
Yayati appointed Turvasu in the southeast direction (from Punjab to
Uttar Pradesh in the west), Druhmu in the west, Yadu in the south (present-day
Sindh-Gujarat province) and Anu in the north as Mandalik and Puru was
given entire earth (bhu mandal) and then Yayati went to the forest.
The territory of Yayati's ranged from Hindukush in Afghanistan to Assam
and from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.
According to the Mahabharata Adiparv 95, Yadu and Turvashu took place
in the 7th generation of Manu (Manu – ila – pururava –
ayu – nahush – yayati – yadu - turuvshu). It is also
written in Mahabharat Adiparv 75.15-16 that Nabhanedisth was the son
of Manu and brother of Ila. Nabhanedisth's father Manu asked him to
preach Sukta 61 and 62 of the Rigved Dasam Mandal.
1. Dynasty of Puru :
There were many majestic kings in Puru Dynasty. Bharat and Sudas were
among them. In this dynasty, Shantanu had sons out of which one was
who were Bhishm. Arjun's son Abhimanyu was born in Puru's lineage. Later
in this dynasty, Parikshit was born, whose son was Janmejay.
2. Dynasty of Yadu :
Lord Krishna was in the family of Yadu. Yadu had 4 sons - Sahasrajit,
Kroshta, Nal and Ripun. Shatjit was born to Sahasrajit. Shatajit had
3 sons - Mahahay, Venuhay and Haihay. Haihay son was Dharma, Dharman
Dharma’s son was Netra, Netra had a child Kundti, Kunti had child
called Sohanji, Sohanji had child Mahishman and Mahishman’s son
3. Dynasty of Turvasu :
Bhoj (Yavanas) occurred in the dynasty of Turvasu. Yayati's son was
Turvasu's and Turvasu's son was, Vahni, Vahini son was bharg, bharg’s
son was bhnuman, Bhanuman’s son was tribhanu, Tribanu son was
udarbuddhi karamdha,, Udarbuddhi Karamdham’s son was Marut. Marut
was childless, so he had kept Purvanshi Dushyant his son, but Dushyant
returned to his own dynasty, wishing for the kingdom.
According to the Mahabharat, Yayati’s son was Turvasu’s
and his decedents were Yavas. He was a Kshatriya before, but after leaving
the Kshatriya karma he was counted among the Shudras. He was with the
Kauravas in the Mahabharat war. Earlier, he was defeated by Nakul and
Sahadev at the time of Digvijay.
4. Ancestry of Anu :
Anu is also sometimes called Anava in the Rigved. According to some
historians, this clan was located in the Parushini River (Ravi River)
area. Later on, the Sauvir, Kaikeya and Madra clan were born from these
Anu's son was Sabhanar, Sambhanar son was Kalanal, Kalanal’s son
was to Sunjay, Sunjay son was Puranjay, Puranjay son was Janmejay, Janmejay
to Mahashal, Mahashal to Mahamana. Mahamana had 2 sons Ushinar and Titikshu.
Ushinar had 5 sons - Nrug, Kumi, Nav, Suvata, Shivi (Aushinar). Out
of this, 4 sons of Shivi were Kekay, Madrak, Suvir and Vrusardak. In
the Mahabharat period there were 4 districts (4 janpad) named after
5. Druhayu Dynasty :
Druhayu's dynasty included King Gandhar. He lived in the middle of Aryavart.
Later the Druhayu’s were driven by Mandhatari, the king of Ikshvaku
clan, towards Central Asia. In Puran’s, there is no mention of
found after Druhyu’s King Prachatus. It is written about Prachatus
that 100 of his sons settled north from Afghanistan and were called
From Yayati's son Druhyu, Babhru was born. Babhru son was setu, Setu
had son called the Arbhad Arbadh had son called Gandhar. Gandhar’s
so was Dharm, Dharm had son Dhut, Shut son was Durman and the son of
Durman was Pracheta. Pracheta had 100 sons, They became the king of
Malech in the north.
* Yadu and Turvus were called slaves. In the case of Yadu and Turvas
it was believed that Indra brought them later. The people of the Bharat
clan resided on the banks of the river Saraswati Drishdwati and Aapya.
The most important clan was that of Bharata. Its ruling class was named
Tritsu. Probably the Srujan and the Kreevi clan were also associated
with him. The dynasty of Yavan and Malech came from Turvus and Druhyu.
In this way, this history is proven that the descendants of Atri, one
of the sons of Brahma, established the Judism, Yavani and Parsi religions.
Out of these, Christian and Islam religions were born. It is believed
that the 12 clan of Yehudis belonged to Druhmu. Although it is a matter
4. Fourth Ancient Dynasty :
Bhrigu Kul :
From the Bhrigu gotra clan's like Bhargav, Chyavan, Aurva, Apanuvan,
Jamadagni, Dadhichi etc. started. If we talk about Brahma's psyche son
Bhrigu, he was around 9,400 years ago. His elder brother's name was
Angira. Atri, Marichi, Daksh, Vasisth, Pulastya, Narad, Kardam, Swayambhuv
Manu, Kritu, Pulah, Sanakadi Rishi are his brothers. He was Vishnu's
father-in-law (shvasur) and Shiv's brother-in-law (sadhu). Maharishi
Bhrigu has also got a place in the Saptarshi Mandal. People of Parsi
religion are considered to belong to the clan of Atri, Bhrigu and Angira.
Zarathushtra, the founder of the Zoroastrianism, is considered to be
a contemporary of the sages like Angira, Bhruspati, etc. of the Rigved.
The Zoroastrian scripture is 'Jend Avesta', written in the Avesta language,
an archaic (very old) branch of the Rigvedic Sanskrit.
(The son born of Brahma and Saraswati was the sage Saraswat. According
to one belief, the son born of Pururava and Saraswati was Saraswan.
The origin (root) of all Saraswat Brahmins is the sage Saraswat. According
to some, Saraswat Rishi was the son of Dadhichi. Dadhichi's father was
a sage (rishi) Bhrigu and Bhrigu's father was Lord Brahma . According
to another belief, Indra sent an Apsara named 'Alambusha' to dissolve
the penance of Dadhichi. Dadhichi was doing tarpan of Devtas. Seeing
the beautiful Apsara there, his semen got angry (ruskhalit). Saraswati
river held that semen in her Kukshi and gave birth as a son, which was
known as 'Saraswat').
It is believed that Atri people had crossed the Indus and gone to Paras
(today's Iran), where they preached Yajna. It was due to Atri's that
fire worship started the Parsi religion. When Zarathustra gave this
religion a system, the name of this religion became 'Zarathustra' or
Maharishi Bhrigu's first wife's name was Khyati, who was daughter of
his brother Daksh. This meant Khyati was his niece. Lord Shankar married
Daksh's second daughter Sati. From Khyati, Bhrigu got 2 sons, data and
vidhata and 1 daughter Lakshmi was born. He married Lakshmi to Lord
Bhrigu's Son Dhata was married to Aayati and had a son called Pran.
Pran's son was dhotiman and Dhotiman had son called Vartaman. Vidhata
was married to Niti and had Mukand, Mukand had son called Markandey
and Markendey had son's called Shri Ved. It is said in the Puran's that
from this the Bhrigu dynasty grew. Bhrigu created the Bhrigu Samhita.
In the same period his brother Swayambhuv Manu composed Manu Smriti.
Bhrigu had other sons like Ushana, Chavan, etc. In the Rig Ved, there
are descriptions of many mantras composed by the Bhriguvanshi sages,
in which the names of Ven, Somahuti, Sumarshmi, Bhargav, Arvi, etc.
are mentioned. Bhargav's have been considered as fire worshipers. Bhrigu
was present at the time of Dasharajna war.
The three principal sons of Bhrigu Rishi were Theushana, Shukra (shukracharya)
and Chavan. Shukra and his family was destroyed due to their involvement
in the side of the demons. Thus Chavan Rishi grew the Bhargav dynasty.
The descent of Chavan Rishi in Mahabharat is as follows. Chavan (wife
Manukanya Aarushi), Aurva, Aurva to Ruchik, Ruchik to Jamdagni, Jamdagni
to Parshuram. Among the sons of Bhrigu Rishi, Chavan Rishi and his family
belonged to Anarta country in West Hindustan. Ushanas Shukra belonged
to the central part of North Bharat. In this dynasty following people
are considered prominent - Ruchik Aurva, Jamdagni, Parshuram, Indrot
Shounak, Prachetus and Valmiki. Many people of Valmiki dynasty are also
Brahmins and Shudra? It is said that during the Mughal period, the Brahmins
who forced were dissolve Janeu and accepted scavenging work of Mughals
were called Shudras. The Kshatriyas who were appointed over the Shudras
were called Mahattars and later Mahattar name was distorted to Mehatar,
There were also many Brahmins in the Bhargav dynasty, who were Suryavanshi
and not Bhargav vanshi. These Brahmins are called 'Kshatriya Brahmins'.
It includes the following people, in whose name the dynasty went on.
1. Matsya, 2. Moudgallayan, 3. Sankritya, 4. Gagyavan, 5. Gargaya, 6.
Kapi, 7. Maitreya, 8. Vradshcha, 9. Divodas. - (Matsya Purana 149.98.100).
The Kshatriya who joined the Bhargav dynasty was Mitrayu, son of Bharatvanshi
king Divodas. The descendants of Mitrayu were called Maitreya and they
introduced Maitreya Gan. The third Kshatriya origin of the Bhargav's
was called Vaitahavya or Yask. The Bhargav dynasty was embellished (gorgeous)
only by Yask.
the Devasur war with the demons (datya), Maharishi Bhrigu's wife, Khyati,
who was a stunning (tejasvi) woman with great power (yog shakti), brought
alive the dead soldiers of the army of demons (datya), angry with that
Lord Vishnu cut her head with his Sudarshan Chakra. Khyati was Shukracharya's
mother and Bhrigu's wife. On knowing about the murder of his wife, Maharishi
Bhrigu curses Lord Vishnu that you will have to be born again and again
from the stomach of a woman. After that Maharishi resurrects (restore
a dead person to life) his wife Khyati with his yogic power and comes
to the banks of the Ganges and builds the Tamsa River.
For the first time on earth, Maharishi Bhrigu taught how to produce
fire. Although some people attribute this to Angira. It was Bhrigu who
told that how Fire (Agni) can be ignited and how we can use fire (Agni),
hence he is considered a sage born of Agni. Bhrigu also discovered Sanjeevani
Vidya. He had discovered the Sanjeevani herb, that is, he had found
a way to bring the dead creature alive. Traditionally, this learning
was received by his son Shukracharya. Due to being the child of Bhrigu,
all the people of his clan are called Bhargav. The Hindu Emperor Hemachandra
Vikramaditya was also Bhriguvanshi.
5. Fifth ancient dynasty :
Angira Dynasty :
Angira his wife was Daksh Prajapati's daughter Smriti (according to
some she was Shraddha). Angira had 3 prominent sons. Utthya, Samvart
and Brahaspati. Their descent is mentioned in the Rigved. There are
references to his other sons- Havishyat, Utthya, Brihatkirti, Brihajyoti,
Brihadbrahman Brihatmantra; Brihavas and Markandeya. Bhanumati, Raga
(Raka), Sini Wali, Archishmati (Havishmati), Mahishmati, Mahamati and
Ekaneka (Kuhu) are also mentioned in their 7 girls. People named Jangid
Brahmins also belong to this clan.
Rishis Marachi's daughter Surupa, Rishi Kardam's daughter Swarat and
daughter of Rishi Manu named Pathya all three were married to Angira
Rishi, There were 5 sons born from Surupa's womb named Brahaspati, Gautam,
Prabandh, Utthya and Ushir. From the womb of Pathya, these 7 sons were
born named Vishnu, Samvart, Vichit, Aayasya, Asij, Dhrigtama and Sudhanwa.
From Rishi Utthya Rishi Sharadwan was born, Brihadukathya was son of
Vamdev. Maharishi Sudhanwa had 3 sons named Rishi Vibhma, Baj etc. These
sages were skilled in putrarathkarma. It is noteworthy that in the Mahabharat
period, charioteers were considered as Shudras. Karna's father was a
charioteer. In this way, the rise and fall of castes in every era has
been on the basis of karma.
Sage Bhraspati :
Angira's sons were called Angiras. The Guru of Devtas is Brahaspati
who was son of Angira. Bhrispati is called as Angiravanshi (from clan
of Angira / angiras). Brahaspati had 3 brothers Utthya and Samvart Rishi
and Atharva who are the doers of Atharva Ved are also Angiras. The Rishi
Brihaspati was the most learned son of Maharishi Angira. According to
the Adiparv of Mahabharata, Brihaspati is the son of Maharishi Angira
and priest of the gods. Brihaspati had a son Kach who learned Sanjivani
Vidya from Shukracharya. Devguru (god of Devtas) had wife named Shubha
and the other is Tara. 7 girls were born from Shubha - Bhanumati, Raka,
Archishmati, Mahamati, Mahishmati, Siniwali and Havishmati. 7 sons and
1 daughter were born to Tara. The third wife of Rishi Brihaspati called
Mamta gave birth to two sons named Bhardwaj and Kach. Brihaspati's Adhidevta
(ishtdevta / kuldevta/ family god) is Indra and Prayadhidevta (ruling
deity) is Brahma.
Bharadwaj was born from Brihaspati (father) and Mamta (mother). The
names of the principal sons of Rishi Bhardwaj are - Rujishva, Garg,
Nar, Payu, Vasu, Shas, Shirambisht, Shunhotr, Saprath and Suhotra. Rishi
Bharadwaj had 2 daughters Ritra and Kashipa. Thus Rishi Bharadwaj had
12 children. Many Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and people of the Dalit
community apply Bhardwaj gotra. They all belong to the Bhardwaj clan.
Other Angiras :
There was also a sage named Angiras who is called Ghor Angiras and who
is also known as Krishna's Guru. It is said that a branch of Bhrigu
dynasty took the form of an independent dynasty called Angiras, so the
remaining Bhargav's stopped calling themselves Angiras.
The information about this dynasty established by the sage Angiras is
found in the Brahmand, Vayu and Matsya Puran. According to this information,
this dynasty was founded by Atharvan Angiras. This lineage was mainly
increased by 7 sages, which are respectively :
1. Avasya Angiras (contemporary of Harishchandra), 2. Ushij Angiras
and his 3 sons Uchathya, Brihaspati and Samvarth, who were priests of
Vaishali of the Karandham, Avikkisht and Marutat Aavikshit kings. 3.
Dhirtamas and Bhardwaj, who were sons of Uchthya and Brihaspati respectively.
Of these, Bharadwaj Rishi was the regent (rajpurohit) of Kinng Divodas
who was king of Kashi. Rishi Dhrigtamas established Gautam Branch in
the country of Ang (ang desh) 4. Vamdev - Gautam, 5. Shardwat Gautam,
was the husband Ahalya, Ahilya was sister of the Divodas king of Uttar
Panchal. 6. Kashivat - Dirgtamas - Aushij, 7. Bharadwaj was a contemporary
of the Pushat king of Uttar Panchal.

6. Sixth ancient dynasty :
Vashisth Rishi Dynasty :
Many Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and people of the Dalit community
apply Vashishth gotra. They all belong to the Vashisth clan. There were
many sages in ancient by the name Vashishth. One Vashishth is the son
of Brahma, the other was in the period of Ikshvaku, the third was in
the reign of King Harishchandra and the fourth was in the reign of King
Dileep and the fifth was in the reign of King Dashrath.
The first is called the son of Brahma, the second son of Mitravarun,
the third is the son of Agni.
Vashisth's wife's name was Arundhati Devi. Vashishth due to the priesthood
(purohatai) of Kamdhenu and Suryavansh he had a quarrel with sage Vishwamitra.
Vishwamitra was from the Yayati clan. Vashishth had more than 100 sons.
Complete information about the sage Vashishth working on the post of
Rajpurohit of Ayodhya is found in the Vayu, Bhramand and Linga Purana.
The names of these sages and gotras are recorded in the Matsya Purana.
The principal people in this dynasty were respectively - 1. Devraj,
2. Aapav, 3. Atharvnidhi, 4. Varuni, 5. Shresthbhaj, 6. Suvarchas, 7.
Shakti and 8. Maitravaruni. There is also a minor branch, which is named
7. Seventh Dynasty :
The Vishwakarma clan is sometimes related to the Bhrigu clan and elsewhere
to the Angira clan. The reason for this is that there have been different
Vishwakarma in each clan. There is also a Brahmin society named Vishwakarma
in our country, which exists in the name of Vishwakarma society. Jangid
Brahmin, Sutar, Suthar and all other craftsmen are proficient in knowledge
of construction art and scripture. It is the best society among Brahmins
because they are the creators.
The craftsman, Vishwakarma Brahmins were addressed in ancient times
with the words Rathkar Vardhaki, Aitab Kavi, Moyavi, Panchal, Rathpati,
Suhast Saur, Parasar, etc. At that time, there were no caste distinctions
like today's ironworkers, woodworkers, carpenters and goldsmiths. In
ancient times, craftsmanship was considered very high and all castes
used to do these tasks of society.
The son of the direct Adi Brahma Vishwakarma Tvashta Prajapati was born
first and he was proficient in all work.
Prabhas son Vishwakarma, Bhuvan son Vishwakarma and Tvashtaputra Vishwakarma
etc. There have been many Vishwakarma. Here we talk of the first Vishwakarma
who was the son of Vastudev and Angirasi. The principal 5 sons of Vishwakarma
were - Manu, Maay, Tvashta, Shilpi and Daivagya.
8. Eighth ancient dynasty :
Sage Agasthya was the brother of Vashishth. The descendants of sage
Agastya have been called Agastya Vanshi. Like Rishi Vashishth, he is
also the son of Mitravaruni. Some people consider him the son of Brahma.
However, he was one of the best 7 disciples of Lord Shankar. He is also
counted among the Saptrishis. His wife's name was Lokamudra. Agastya's
wife Lokamudra was the daughter of Vidarbharaj Nimi. They are mentioned
in the Rig Ved.
It was Sage Agastya who made the treaty between Indra and Maruts. Agastya
Rishi made his way to reach South Bharat from the hill of Vidyanchal.
Maharishi Agastya drank the whole sea to liberate the gods from the
tyranny of the demons. He also stopped the killeing of sages by evil
demons called Elval and Vatapi. Sage Agastya is most revered in South
Bharat. During his exile, Shri Ram stayed in the ashram of sage Agastya.
The gotras of Agastya dynasty are Karambha (Karanbhav) Kaushalya, Kratuvanshodbhava,
Gandharkavan, Paulastya, Paulah, Mayobhuv, Shakat (Karat), Sumedhas.
These gotrakar Agastya, Mayobhuva and Mahendra belong to these 3 pravar.
Agastya, Pournimas these gotrakar are Agastya, Paran, Pournimas of these
9. Ninth ancient dynasty :
Kaushik Dynasty :
Maharishi Vishwamitra is described in the 30th, 33rd and 53rd Suktas
in the third division of the Rig Ved. From there, it is known that these
Kushik gotrautpan were Kaushik. It is said that these Kaushik people
knew the secret of the whole world.
Though Vishwamitra himself was a Kashyap Vanshi, therefore Kaushik or
Kushik were also Kashyap Vanshis. We have given the details of Kashyap
dynasty above. Kushik was the grandfather of Vishwamitra. Chavan's descendant
Ruchik married the daughter of Kushik's son Gaadhi from whom Jamadagni
was born. He had son Parashuram.
Prajapati's sons were Kush, Kush's son Kushnabh and Kushnabh's son Raja
Gaadhi. Vishwamitra was the son of the same Gaandhi. It is said that
Kaushik Rishi was a resident of Kurukshetra.
10. Tenth ancient dynasty :
Bhardwaj Dynasty :
In Bhardwaj gotra will find you in all caste, varna and society. In
ancient times, there have been many sages by the name of Bhardwaj. But
we are talking about the sixth mandal of the Rig Ved, who has written
765 mantras. Bharadwaj Rishi occupies very high position among the Vedic
Angiravanshi Bharadwaj's father was Bhrispati and mother Mamta. This
dynasty will also be called Angira's dynasty due to Brihaspati being
the son of Angira. Rishi Bharadwaj composed many texts, among them the
Yantra Sarvasva and Viman Shashtra are discussed even today.
Charak Rishi has called Bharadwaja having 'infinite' age. Rishi Bharadwaj
was the priest of Kashiraj Divodas. He was also the priest of Pratardhan,
son of Divodas. He also performed Yajna of Kshatra, son of Pratardan.
At the time of exile, Lord Ram went to his ashram, which was historically
a treaty of Treta - Dwapar. By the above evidences, Bharadwaj Rishi
has been called an infinite one.
Bharadwaja's father was Devguru Brahaspati and mother Mamata. The names
of the principal sons of Rishi Bharadwaj are Rujishva, Garg, Nar, Payu,
Vasu, Shas, Shirambith, Shunhotra, Saprath and Suhotra. Bharadwaj had
2 daughters, Ratri and Kashipa. Thus Rishi Bharadwaj had 12 children.
Different dynasties went on in everyone's name. Many Brahmins, Kshatriyas,
Vaishyas and people of the Dalit community belong partially to the Bharadwaj
11. Eleventh ancient dynasty :
Garg Dynasty :
Many people have gotra as Garg and many people have surname Garg. Everyone
is related to Garg Rishi. The descendants of the Vedic sages Garg Angiras
and Bharadwaj were the best among the 33 mantras. Gargvanshi people
will merge with both Brahmins and Vaishyas (Baniyas). A Garg sage also
happened in the Mahabharat period, who was the Acharya of the Yadus
who wrote the 'Garg Samhita'.
Looking at the tradition of Brahmin ancestors, Shukla from Garga, Mishra
from Gautam, Tiwari or Tripathi dynasty from Shrimukh Shandilya comes
to light. There are said to be 13 boys of Garg Rishi who are called
Garg Gotriya, Panch Pravariya, Shukla descendants, who were divided
into 13 villages. It would be wrong to say that gotra and sage (rishi)
are only Brahmins. Dalit society has also been born from all these sages.
One of its branches is found in Dalits and the other in Kshatriyas and
12 Twelfth ancient dynasty :
Some people consider Lord Buddh as Gautam Vanshi. However, many Dalit
groups also developed in this dynasty, including groups of Brahmins
and Kshatriyas. Many Sakyavanshi consider Gautam Buddha as Shakyavanshi
which is not correct. Gautam Buddh had initiated (given diksha) the
Shakya the most, hence his reputation among the Shakas is high. Vishwamitra
and Vashishth contemporary Maharishi Gautam was also the originator
of Nyaya Darshan. He is also known as Akshpad Gautam.
Gautam Rishi's wife's name was Ahilya. Everyone will know the story
of Shehlaharan of Ahalya, who was tricked by Indra. After this, the
sage cursed Ahilya to become a Shilla (rock). When Shri Ram reached
Janakpuri with Vishwamitra, taking an avatar in Tretayug, he saw the
ashram of Gautam Rishi. At the same time, Ahalya became free from curse
by the touch of Lord Ram and became human again.
Gautam Rishi is said to have 6 sons, who were residents of these 6 villages
in Bihar - Chanchai, Madhubani, Champa, Champaran, Vidra and Bhatiyari.
Apart from this, there are also 6 villages that follow the sub-Gautam
i.e. Gautam, which are as follows - Kalidiha, Bahudih, Waleediha, Bhabhayan,
Patnade and Kapisa. The origin of Sub-Gautam is believed to be from
these villages. The descendants of the Gautam sages had expanded their
lineage out of Bihar.
