Gana is 6th koot of ashtkoot. It has 6 marks. There are three types of Gana i.e Dev Gana, Manushya Gana, and rakshas Gana. Gana is calculated from nakshatras. There are 27 Nakshatra. These Nakshatra are divided into three Gana. Gana is matched to see the temperament of both partners, the tendency to harmonize, and the ability to control each other. If Gana is the same then there are fewer issues in marriage. The people who have Dev Gana will have qualities like Devtas, people belonging to the Manushya Gana will have human-like qualities, and those belonging to the Rakshas Gana will have Rakshas-like qualities. If the boy and girl both have Dev Gana in Kundli Milan, then it is a perfect match and if one of the two has Dev Gana and the other Manushya Gana, this match is also auspicious but the Dev Gana and the Rakshas Gna and the Rakshas Gana and the Manushya Gana will not work as everyone knows that rakshas has enmity with gods and humans. 

Below you can see which Nakshatras/constellations are देव गण/gods, मनुष्य गण/humans and राक्षस गण/demons.

Bhakoot is 7th koot in matchmaking or Kundli Milan. It is used to analyze overall happiness, health, and wealth. It has 7 points the 2nd highest point.

And if the Nadi of both the boy and girl is not the same then it is a good match and both will get 8 marks. Nadi in the Kundli/horoscope is seen from the constellation of the Moon. There are 3 types of Nadi i.e. Adi Nadi/आदि नाडी, Madhya Nadi/मध्य नाड़ी, and Antya Nadi/अन्‍त्‍य नाड़ी. All 27 Nakshatra/constellations have been equally divided into the three nadis.
