Gan is a koot or aspect which carries 6 points or gunas according to the system of gun Milan in Vedic Jyotish which is used for the purpose of horoscope matching or match making between two individuals. The system of gun Milan is the most popular system in India when it comes to do a horoscope matching or match making for the purpose of marriage and compatibility. This system of gun Milan has been in use since the Vedic ages and even today it is considered as the best possible solution for horoscope matching or match making and many astrologers and most of people still think that gun Milan is a complete process of horoscope matching or match making in itself and nothing else needs to paid attention for the purpose of horoscope matching. For the new readers who are not familiar with this system of gun Milan, let me mention here that the system of gun Milan is based on matching 8 aspects or koots from both the horoscopes which are called Varna, Vashya, Tara, Yoni, Graha, Gana, Bhakoot and Nadi and all of these 8 koots are assigned 1 to 8 points or gunas respectively which make a total of 36 and a final score is calculated for a particular horoscope matching or match making based on how good or bad is the matching of each one of these 8 koots. Gana lies at 3rd position from the top and accordingly it carries 6 gunas or points and different number of gunas or points are assigned to a horoscope matching or match making based on how the gana of bride and groom match with each other according to the rules of gun Milan.

 And before moving ahead, let’s first get to know as to what is a gan in a horoscope and what is the important of a gan in the process of horoscope matching or matching done through gun Milan. As we know that all nine planets called navagraha in Vedic Jyotish are always on their journey from one sign to the other and from one nakshatra to the other and accordingly the Moon also travels from Ashvini nakshatra to Revati nakshatra and from Aries to Pisces in a cyclic movement and at any given point of time and place, Moon is present in a particular nakshatra and in a particular sign. For example, let’s assume that Moon is present in Rohini nakshatra and Taurus sign at this time and place and accordingly all the people born under this time and place will have the Moon placed in Rohini nakshatra and in Taurus sign in their birth horoscopes. Hence the birth nakshatra of these natives is Rohini and birth sign or Raashi as it is called in Vedic Jyotish, of these natives is Taurus. Moving ahead, Vedic Jyotish assigns a gan to each nakshatra out of a total of three ganas which are named as Dev Gana, Manva Gana or Manushya Gan and Rakshas Gan or Rakshas Gana. This classification of Ganas divides the 27 nakshatras in 3 equal parts which means that Dev Gana is assigned to 9 nakshatras out of 27 nakshatras, Manav Gana is assigned to 9 nakshatras out of 27 nakshatras and Rakshas gan is assigned to 9 nakshatras out of 27 nakshatras and this way every native has equal possibility of belonging to each one of these ganas called Dev gan, Manav gan and Rakshas gan based on the position of Moon in a particular nakshatra at the time of their birth. Following are the Ganas assigned to each nakshatra according to Vedic Jyotish :

The 9 nakshatras namely Ashwini, Mrigashira, Punarvasu, Pushya, Hasta, Swati, Anuradha, Shravana and Revati are considered to belong to Dev gan according to Vedic Jyotish.

The 9 nakshatras namely Bharani, Rohini, Ardra, PoorvaPhalguni, UttaraPhalguni, PoorvaShada, UttaraShada, PoorvaBhadrapada and UttaraBhadrapada are considered to belong to Manav Gan or Manushya Gan according to Vedic Jyotish.

The 9 nakshatras namely Krittika, Ashlesha, Magha, Chitra, Vishakha, Jyeshtha, Moola, Dhanishtha and Shatabhisha are considered to belong to Rakshas Gan or Rakshas Gana according to Vedic Jyotish.

 The compatibility of each nakshatra gan has been decided and fixed according to Vedic Jyotish and the system of gun Milan uses the following guidelines while predicting compatibility between nakshatra ganas and assigning gunas or points for this gana compatibility :

If birth nakshatra of boy under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Dev Gana and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Dev Gan, 6 out of 6 points or guna are assigned for such a gana match according to the system of gun Milan.

If birth nakshatra of boy under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Manva or Manushya Gan, 6 out of 6 points or guna are assigned for such a gana match according to the system of gun Milan.

If birth nakshatra of boy under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Rakshas Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Rakshas Gan, 6 out of 6 points or guna are assigned for such a gana match according to the system of gun Milan.

If birth nakshatra of boy under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Dev Gan, 6 out of 6 points or guna are assigned for such a gana match according to the system of gun Milan.

If birth nakshatra of boy under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Dev Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan, 5 out of 6 points or guna are assigned for such a gana match according to the system of gun Milan.

If birth nakshatra of boy under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Dev Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Rakshas Gan, 1 out of 6 points or guna are assigned for such a gana match according to the system of gun Milan.

If birth nakshatra of boy under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Rakshas Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Dev Gan, 0 out of 6 points or guna are assigned for such a gana match according to the system of gun Milan.

If birth nakshatra of boy under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Rakshas Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gana, 0 out of 6 points or guna are assigned for such a gan match according to the system of gun Milan.

If birth nakshatra of boy under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for horoscope matching or match making belongs to Rakshas Gana, 0 out of 6 points or guna are assigned for such a gan match according to the system of gun Milan.

 In the cases of horoscope matching or match making where gana match gives a score of 0 or 1 according to gun Milan, a gan dosh is said to be formed in the horoscope which is associated with very bad results like separation, divorces and other bad things. The system of gun Milan also lays a rule of exception for the formation of gan dosh during horoscope matching or match making which is as follows :

If the Moon Sign or Rashi of both boy and girl under consideration for match making are same, then Gan dosh is said to be nullified of cancelled in such cases. For example, if birth nakshatra of the boy is Uttaraphalguni and birth nakshatra of the girl is Chitra and the Moon sign or Rashi of both boy and girl is Virgo, then gan dosh is considered to be nullified in this case even though UttaraPhalguni nakshatra belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan and Chitra nakshatra belongs to Rakshas gan according to Vedic Jyotish. 

 It can be seen from the above mentioned data that there are only 9 combinations for gan match based on the birth nakshatra of boy and girl and gan assigned to these nakshatras and 4 out of these 9 combinations form gan dosh in horoscope matching or match making according to gun Milan system. Hence it can be said that about 45% of the cases of horoscope matching or match making are having gan dosh on average according to gun Milan. Taking the exception also into account, this figure comes closer to 40% which means that about 40% of the cases of horoscope matching have gan dosh in their horoscopes. The formation of gan dosh is associated with divorces and broken marriages and many other bad things and accordingly 40% of the marriages should be suffering from the problems associated with gan dosh which means that every second or third girl on average is prohibited for a boy and every second or third boy is prohibited for a girl merely on the basis of gan dosha. As we know that most of the people who do not belong to India, do not go through this process of horoscope matching and gun Milan, hence every second or third marriage of the world should be facing serious troubles and problems indicated by gan dosh and accordingly the rate of divorces and broken marriages should be very high in the world merely due to gana dosh. It should also be noted here that gana dosh is only one of the defects formed during horoscope matching or match making and there are many other defects like Nadi Dosha, Bhakut Dosh, Kuja Dosha, Sarpa Dosha, Pitru Dosha, Kemdrum Yog and other defects of this kind, each of which is capable of causing equally serious problems in 40 to 50% of the marriages according to the prevalent definition of these doshas. Taking everything into consideration, it can be easily said that almost all the marriages in the world should end up in divorces or deaths which is absolutely not the truth and which is far away from truth.

 Hence the presence of gana dosha during horoscope matching or match making alone is not sufficient on its own to cause the kind of damages which are associated with this dosha and there are many other factors in both the horoscopes which should confirm the problems caused by gana dosha in horoscope matching or match making and only then such kind of severe problems are likely to trouble the married life of a couple. In my experience of horoscope matching which now goes over thousands of cases of horoscope matching or match making, I have seen hundreds of successful marriages in spite of the presence of a gana dosh in horoscope matching or match making mainly due to fact that the overall horoscopes of such couples were giving very good indications about the marriage and married lives of these couples and the benefic and positive factors present in these horoscopes reduced the malefic effects of gana dosha to great extent and hence gan dosh could not cause any significant damage to these couples. Hence it should be kept in mind that the formation of a gan dosh during horoscope matching can cause significant problems in the marriage of the couple under consideration only if such a gana dosha is supported by some other malefic doshas present in one or both the horoscopes and a gan dosh is not capable of doing serious damages on its own in most of the cases. It should also be noted that the presence of good yogas in one or both the horoscopes can reduce the bad effects of gana dosh to great extents and accordingly this dosha cannot do any significant damage in such a marriage. Therefore the couples having a gan dosha during horoscope matching or match making should not lose heart and they should get their horoscopes matched properly in order to know whether such a gan dosh is capable of doing any damage or not. It should also be noted here that  the malefic effects of gana dosha present in horoscope matching can be rectified with astrological remedies like Yantras, Mantras and pujas in most of the cases which gives us another reason not to be too afraid of gana dosh.
