THE SATRAS - III

In discussion too he shares new experiences, and, in commerce with stronger minds,  is lifted to higher levels and discerns new landscapes in the world of being. Much of this can be had
through books, but not all. They suffer from the grave disadvantage of not being able to ask or  answer questions. (Some Tasks for Education). All these go to produce within the Satra successful
teachers, religious leaders as well as eminent poets, scholars and philosophers.

Besides religious education and monastic practices, the Bhaktas are engaged in secular learning such as cultivation of arts and crafts. Since converts are drawn mainly from the villages, they  naturally bring with them the skill and technique of their village crafts. They are occupied in buildings and repairing the Namghars and their own dwelling huts and decorating them. They make various useful articles of wood, bamboo, reed and ivory, and the articles required in dramatic performance.
They undertake to copying and illustrating manuscripts as an act of piety and devotion.
