MAJULI SATRAS

Lakshminarayana, another saint of Damodaradeva, sect and a passionate devotee, established the Garamur Satra in the Majuli Island during the reign of Jayadhvaj Singh. It should be noted that under the patronage of the Ahom sovereigns, the Majuh Satras became famous centres of the Vaishnava faith, cultural activity and piety of the monks.

Auniati, Dakhinpat and Garamur are the principal Brahmanical Satras. The Satradhikar’s of these monasteries are strictly celibates. The Satradhikar’s for these, Satras are elected from other Satras where married life is allowed. The chosen young man is brought into the, Satra during his teen age and trained up in Vaishnava religion, philosophy and life. During the period of training this young
devotee is called Deka-Adhikar, the young pontiff.
