Why our Ancestors created Kuladeivam?

The ancestors of a man form a lineage called Gothram and their worship of a particular deity brings prosperity to them as the deity showers all His blessing upon the family for generations after generations and makes them prosperous and happy in life. All these members of this gotra are united by a sense of brotherhood though they may differ in personality, complexion and other such traits.
Our ancestors are the starters of our Kuladeivam worship and our generation continues that. Our worship of Kuladeivam becomes our family tradition. That is why worshiping Kuladeivam is important and it should not be neglected by any man.
When we pray to our Kuladeivam, we not only gain the grace of our Kuladeivam but our ancestors also bless us from their heavenly abode watching our prayers to Kuladeivam. Their sins are also washed away. That is why one should not break from worshiping Kuladeivam and should do it for a lifetime. Since in most villages, people of the same community tend to be related, everyone will have the same Kula Daivam. People visit the temple of their Kula Deivam every year and make special pooja from their family.
