THE SATRAS - I

The first was the conversion of the famous Sakta scholar Madhavadeva, who later on became the greatest apostle and the most formidable exponent of the tenets of Sankara. The second incident relates to Sankaradeva's encounter with the Ahom King Suhummung (1497-1539 A.D.). The Brahmana accused Sankara before the Ahom king of preaching a religion
unorthodox and not envisaged by the Vedas. The Ahom king summoned Sankara to argue with the Brahmana of his court. Sankara defeated them and got off from the trial with credit.

In the meantime, another unhappy event took place, which forced him to leave Ahom territory forever. The Ahom king was engaged in the operations of elephant catching, and 'directed Sankara deva and his relatives in this work. The king made them erect a fence of wooden palisades and announced the penalty that those, in whose direction the elephant sholud break through, would be beheaded.Unfortunately the elephants broke loose through the phalanx of Sankaradeva and his men.
