THE SATRAS - I

Sankara was born in a Bhuyan family at Alipukhuri, a place about sixteen miles from the present town of Nowgong, on the south bank of the Brahmaputra in the bright Dasami of Ashvin in 1371 Saka (1449 A.D.). The Bhuyans; were at that time a very important people holding landed estates and enjoying other, privileges from the king. Sankara's family was called the Siromani Bhuyan, being the chief among the Bhuyans. His father was Kusumavara. Sankara's mother died within three days of
his birth, and his grandmother Khersuti brought him up. When Sankara was twelve years old he was sent to a village school maintained by Mahendra Kandali, an erudite Sanskrit scholar.

The earlier years of Sankara's life were spent in hard study and preparation. His scholarship in Sanskrit and knowledge of the scriptures were well revealed in the number of translations and adaptations are made in Assamese in the later years of his life.
