THE SATRAS - III

Besides the ecclesiastical structure, the Satras developed various conventions and ideas, a fixed order of congregational worship, a systematic set of beliefs, i.e., the theology and a body of sacred
writings in Assamese including psalms and hymns. It is relevant to note in this connection that the  congregation sings only hymns of Sankaradeva,Maethavadeva and those composed by the saints
of the respective Satras and not by private persons.

Prasangas or devotional services where the congregation assembles at specified hour for community worship and singing are held all through the day under the leadership of the Satradhikar. According to the orthodox code fourteen Prasangas are held, five in the morning, three in the after - noon and six in the evening. On religious festivals, elaborate ceremonies, featured by Prasangas  and, nama-kirtan, musical singing of Lord’s praise is held and they are attended by the laity from  different places.
