THE SATRAS - II

Sankaradeva preached a religion of supreme surrender to One and the worship of other gods and goddesses is strictly prohibited. It has been said by Sankaradeva, himself that a "Vaishnava should not worship any other god except Vishnu, he should not enter any other- god's temple, nor should he partake of the offerings made to any other god. In so doing Bhakti would be vitiated.

In another place he says: -

'"As the branches, leaves and foliage of a tree are nourished by pouring water only at the root of the tree, as limbs of. The body are nourished by putting food only in the stomach, so all gods and goddesses are propitiated only by the worship ofKrishna" In short, there is only one God, one mode of worship and there is none else but one. This religion knows no caste, and universal spirit is the main principle of this faith. Mahapurushiyadharma is another name for this faith, because Sankaradeva's object of worship, the AR-Pervasive, Parama - Brahma, to whom devotee is to take shelter, is so described in the Bhagavata. It had universal appeal and therefore people of all castes could embrace it.
