Abstract

Sakardeva with disciples started a ‘renaissance’ in Assam by establishing Namghar, Satra in the medieval period. Even nowadays, people have revere and devotion to them. These institutions changed the spiritual and moral outlook of the people of Assam as well as prepared the ground for the establishment of a new society. Madhupur Satra situated in Koch Bihar is still a place of honor for each and every Assamese. The condition of Madhupur Satra is now dilapidated. Fascinated by the ideology of Sankardeva, Koch king Naranarayana donated 700 bighas of land to the Satra. But a huge part of the land was auctioned due to its failure to pay the land tax as a result of its financial crisis. Moreover, Satra needed to sale the land to run the administration. Thus, the condition of the Satra, which contributed immensely to the Assamese culture, turned worse day by day. The objective of the paper is to have a discussion on the Satra culture of Assam with special reference to Madhupur Satra.
