THE SATRAS - I

The king was convinced about the superiority of Sankaradeva's creed and was deeply moved by his majestic personality. He honoured the saint with valuable presents and assured royal patronage towards propagation of the Bhakti movement in his kingdom. The king even expressed his desire to become his disciple but Sankaradeva declined to give him initiation, as he thought that it would not be possible for kings to observe the religious and ethical code of his religion. Sankaradeva came back to Barpeta, but both the king and his brother Cilarai invited him on several occasions to Cooch Behar for holding religious discussions.

Cilarai built for him a Satra, near the capital which was known as Bheladanga Satra. Here, the great saint who gave to Assam a new way of thinking about God and man passed away in 1569 A.D. Before his death, Sankaradeva nominated his devout disciple Madhavadeva to the apostolic seat, disregarding the claims of his son, who was also a devout Vaishnava. From Madhavadeva's time, theEkasaranadharma came to be known as Mahapurushiya as Madhava was looked upon by the disciples as the Mahapurusha, the great spiritual leader who led the way in devotion to the faith of Sankara.
