THE SATRAS - III

Introduction

Sankaradeva's religion has many institutional aspects, and these exercise even today a tremendous  influence on the cultural, social and community life of the Assamese people. As an institution, it may
be considered mainly in two major aspects: the Satras and Namghars.

The word 'Satra' was used to denote a place of religious gathering. In the words of Bhatta Deva,  "Where ardent devotees perform duties pleasing to God, where nine-fold Bhakti prevails, that  supreme place adomed by Gods and Vaishnavas is called a Satra. Vaishnavas residing there are naturally prone to Harinama."
