Respected Sir, I have one question. On the sraadha day, we invite 5 brahmins (bruhaspathi, brahma, pitru, visvedeva, mahavishnu. We offer food to bhokthas i.e. pitru, visvedeva and mahavishnu. Can any one of the bhokthas belong to the same gothra as the dead person?

Answer: As per strict niyama, no person of same gothra can be invited as Bhoktha.  However, Brahma & Bruhaspathi persons can belong to any Gothra if they are not taking seat of Bhokta sthana. In simple terms, sahothra persons cannot be offered the Bhoktha of Viswedeva, Pithru or Mahavishnu positions in any Srardham. These are already explained in the page under heading Srardha Dharma & Tharppana Niyama of this website.
