What is meaning of Gothra?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Gothra is simply like a blood group. You know the word group has come from Gothra. Gothra means a particular group, a particular knowledge, a particular type of body, mind, consciousness.
Once there was a very good Nadi doctor (doctor that performs an Ancient technique of diagnosis through the pulse), and he checked one person’s pulse and he said, “You are doing The Art of Living”. The person said, “How do you know?” The doctor said, “All Art of living people have a particular type of pulse”.
Similarly, if you walk anywhere and you find a big smile on someone’s face, then you feel he must be doing something – meditation, Kriya or something. People who do Sudarshan Kriya or meditation or something like that, you can right away identify because what you do reflects in your DNA. People who are engaged in criminal activities, their vibrations will tell you they are different, they are not normal. In the same tone I can say, people who cheat others they have certain vibes, you can feel that. They are over ambitious, ready to tell lies. You can identify.
