THE SATRAS - II

Above all, Sankaradeva propagated namadharma as practical method to Mukti. Nama Dharma consists in chanting the name of the supreme self with undeviating devotion, being pure in heart,' thought and action. The advantage of reciting the name of Hari is that everybody can do it,
irrespective of age, caste, and stage of life, time or place. In Bhakti-Ratnakara, he says: -

Aponara namar Sanga nacarata Hari
Yeyi Nama seyi Hari lana nista Kari.

"Hari never shuns the company of His name. It is absolutely certain that Nama is Hari Himself."

Sankaradeva" explain the merits of the chanting of the name of Hari in the Ajamilopakhyana (the story of Ajamila). This story taken from the Bhagavata narrates the story of a Brahman who lived in open sin with a Sudra harlot and broke all laws sacred to his caste in maintaining his mistress and the ten children begotten of this woman.
