THE SATRAS - III

Here not only Sastras like the Gita and the, Bhagavata are recited in a musical mariner, Bargits are sung with proper melodies,nama-kirtan,singing the praises of the Lord are held,dramatic performance are enacted, festivals are celebrated but greater problems of life, philosophy   and religion are also discussed and debated. The Namghars further serve as Panchayat -hall, where  villagers gather to discuss and solve many of their day-to-day problems. These community centres  have been found even to play political and judicial role.

Not only through daily Prasangas and namakirtans but through celebrations of regularly recurring  festivals followed the year round, the Namghars create religious enthusiasm among all ages and  sexes of the people, and become the main centre of attractions and cultural activities. In addition to  the festivals, certain days in the year set aside for commemoration of saints and Satradhikar are observed with fast,prayer services and dramatic entertain -ment.These religiousobservances naturally weave the faith into daily life of the people throughout the year.
