THE SATRAS - III

After the death of Madhavadeva, who became the chief  apostle after Sankaradeva, the schism in the Sankarite 'sect widened and consequently several
sub-sects or Sainhatis grew up. Some of the major sub-sects are Brahma-Samhati, Kala-Sainhati,Nika-Samhati and Purusha - Samhati. As the disciples of these sub - sects spread their activities, their missionary outposts became branches Satras, and the original centres became the headquarters. 

The branch Satras founded by the Brahniana preachers usually follow the pattern of the Bamuniya  Satras, like the Auniati or Dakhinpat, the other follows the setup of Bardowa or Barpeta and derived  inspiration from them.Whether original or branch, the Satras have huge establish- ments, departments and a great number  of structures.
