THE SATRAS - I

Jagadish Misra searched out Sankaradeva at Bardowa and read out the book before him. The Brahmana survived only a year
after the mission of reading out all the twelve books of the Bhagavata to Sankara was fulfilled. Sankaradeva then began to study deeply the Bhagavata with its commentary, and seriously took up
propounding and propagating the cult of Bhakti. He immediately set to translate the Purana into simple Assamese verse and started to compose many songs, narrative poems, and plays on the theme of the Purana.

At the age of sixty-seven (1516 A.D.) Sankaradeva had to leave his ancestral residence at Bardowa owing to the occasional disturbances created by the neighboring Kachari king and his subjects. He therefrom removed to Gangmau and then to Dhuwahata, a place in the Majuli islands on the Brahmaputra. For about fourteen years, he resided at Dhuwahata, and his stay here was marked by two important incidents.
