THE SATRAS - III

The Satras are like mediaeval monasteries or maths. They were originally established at places away  from the humdrum of life; and Sankaradeva set up the first Satra near his ancestral village at   Bardowa. Later on Satras grew up at all places where Sankaradeva stayed during his movements  from Bardowa to Barpeta. But more Satras came into existence when differences of opinion arose  amongst the followers after Sankaradeva's death, particularly between his Brahman and Sudra  followers.

The first Brahman seceders who established independent Satras were Damodaradeva and Harideva. Later on the Brahman preachers founded four important Satras in Upper Assam, namely  Garamur, Kuruabahi, Auniati andDakhinpat.
