I belong to the Pourakutsa gotra (from TamilNadu). The rishis name that we use match with the list given by Jaldhar (although not in the same order. It goes as angirasa, trasadasyu and pourakutsa. Is that important ?).

Regd, two different gotras having different set of rishis, Does this mean shaTamarshana and pourakutsa are just two names for the same gotra ?
