THE SATRAS - III

Further, fees are to be paid on the occasions of any  birth, marriage or death in the family of the disciples. The Satras have a special set of officers known as Medhi, Rajmedhi, Sajtola and Pacani to collect fees and contributions from the lay disciples.  These incomes serve to make the Satras extremely prosperous and enable them to run their large organization.

The Satra organization is very much interested, in the organization of the laity in the villages, and  from the beginning of the movement this was 'done through the village-Namghars, The Namghars which were set up as central religious institutions of the village worked to a large extent towards spread of intellectual and cultural activities in the village, and in course of time being nerve-centres of the village came to co-ordinate all the aspects of social, economic and political life of the Assamese people.
