MAJULI SATRAS

Padma Ata who was a Sudra set up Kamalabari Satra in the Majuli Island. He led a very simple and saintly life and attained high spiritual eminence. In course of years,inessential rites and unrecognized observances crept into the faith which Padma Ata and Mathura Das of Barpeta Satra reformed. They set up a refined sect called Nikasainhati. Padma Ata stressed the teachings of Sankaradeva that external things such as yogic exercise, sacrifice, bathing in Holy River, pilgrimage, sanyasa and fasting do not purify a man as honest life, good company and love of all beings do.

On the eve of his death, Padma Ata nominated his Brahmana disciple Shriram to the Adhikarship of the Kamalabari Satra. This is also an Udasin Satra, i.e., the head of the Satra is a celibate.The above is an account of some of the important Satras which brought about a new orientation and salutary reformation in. every aspect of Assamese life.
