Gana holds a key role in Vedic astrology. Gana represents one’s nature. Deva Gana (Divine), Rakshasa Gana (Demonic) and Manushya Gana (Human) are the three types of Ganas.
Manushya Gana: This is seen in many human beings. People who work and live for their family and relatives will fall under this group. Such kinds of people do regular works, and if anyone approaches them for any help, they will pretend like they are busy. In other words, these people possess mixed qualities.
Deva Gana: They will possess divine nature, and these persons can be seen rarely. Such people work for others without any expectations. They will look into other problems; suggest ideas though they cannot work on the issue due to their busy lives. On the whole, they mostly care for others. Overall they are soft-spoken and generous.
Rakshasa Gana: In many humans, this demonic nature can be found. These people will be very selfish, and they won’t have the helping tendency. When comparing the other two ganas, these people will have more advantages. With their powerful sixth sense, they can recognize the negative energy easily and early. They are cruel.

The maximum points in Gana koota are 6. When both partners belong to the same Gana, then 6 points are given. The Couple is eligible for 5 points when the boy belongs to Deva Gana and girl belongs to Manushya Gana.
A Rakshasa Gana boy with a girl of Deva or Maushya Gana scores 0 points where there is an exception when the girl belongs to Rakshas Gana, and the boy belongs to Manushya Gana. When a couple scores 0 points, then it is called “Gana Dosha.”
Marriage between Rakshasa Gana and Deva gana
Rakshasa gana born people are stubborn in their views. They are less responsive and do not adjust to things quickly. A Rakshasa gana man and a deva gana woman can marry whereas the reverse cannot work. It represents a dominating woman which is quite unacceptable in our cultured country. This Deva- Rakshasa pair has to be mostly avoided that scores only 0 points out of 4.

Rakshasa Gana people are dominating in nature. They can easily dominate and control Deva Gana. The pair are said to be perfect if a couple belongs to the same gana where the nature of both persons will be alike.

So, analyze thoroughly the Kundli’s of a couple before fixing their marriage.
