THE SATRAS - III

He again and again emphasized on the Bhagavata's saying that even a Candala is purged of the impurity of his caste by firm devotion to God; and sincere faith and devotion alone can uplift the soul to eternal communion with God. Even a Chandala, harnessed to sincere faith and devotion is dearer to God than a Brahmana, sadly lacking in faith. Even a person of low birth is liberated from bondage if he utters the name of God only once.

Madhavadeva, who became the chief apostle after Sankaradeva, deputed several of his followers to Upper Assam to spread the teachings of the creed and to bring about an intellectual awakening in
the non-Hindu tribes of the Ahom kingdom. Gopaladeva of the Bhavanipur Satra (1541-1611) made all efforts to introduce the message of Bhakti among the Barahis, Marans, Kacharis, and the Chutiyas of
Upper Assam.The Dihing Satra, which originated from Gopaladeva, did a great lot to educate and uplift many tribes of Upper Assam, and it not only admitted converts from the non-Hindu tribes but also placed them on equal footing with the disciples of the higher castes.
