THE SATRAS - I

Soon after his return, Sankara married again and removed his residence from Alipukhuri to a nearby village, Bardowa. Now his mission of life took a definite shape; he started with fresh impetus and
vigorous enthusiasm his religious movement for mass conversion. At Bardowa, he set up a Satra (monastery), erected a Namghar and held religious discourses. Around him, he collected a group of devout disciples, and held daily devotional recitations known as Namakirtana.

During this time, he received a complete text of the Bhagavata-Purana from Puri through Jagadish Mishra of Tirhhut. A miraculous story is told about his coming across with the Bhagavata-Purana. The Brahmana Pundit Jagadish Misra went to Puri to read out the Bhagavata in the temple of Jagannatha. In a dream, the Brahmana received a mandate from Jagannatha to the effect that he should proceed to Kamarupa and read out the Bhagavata to Sankaradeva.
