Why Rama Uses Brahmin Rishis In Gotra Pravara


He recites the names of Brahmin Rishis as his ancestors in His Pravara?

Why?

Lord Rama’s Gotra/Pravara is this.

Yajur vEDa Saakhaa adhyaayinE, VaasishTa, MaitraavruNa KouNDinya trayaarishEya Prvaraanvita, VasishTa….Note how meticulously he uses the term Varma , indicating that He is a Kshatriya.

Brahmins must use the term Sarma, Kshatriyas Varma and Vaisyas Gupta after their Names in Pravara.
