THE SATRAS - III

In other parts of India, the humiliation to which these unfortunates were subjected, drove them to the bosom of other religions; in Assam, the liberal policy of the Kalasamhati Satras endowed them with a sense of self-respect and individual value. These Satras made a great appeal to the unsophisticated Assamese people and thus they commanded unprecedented popularity."

The missionaries deputed by these Satras no doubt brought the cult of devotion and universal love and opened the doors of salvation to all tribes irrespective of caste and character but they also "introduced an unwanted gentleness and fervor, and tamed the rude manly savagery of Tantric
worship and animism, that used to prevail in many places before."
