Tithi of Mahapurusha Srimanta Shankardeva celebrated today
September 15, 2015
Asstt. Professors Ms. Himadri Dutta and Ms. Sushmita Bora Rongpipi gave a beautiful presentation on the occasion of the Tithi of Mahapurusha Srimanta Shankardeva.
Mahapurusha Srimanta Shankardeva (1449–1568), saint-scholar, playwright, social-religious reformer, is a colossal figure in the cultural and religious history of Assam, India. He is credited with providing a thread of unity to Assam straddling two major kingdoms (Ahom and Koch kingdoms), building on past literary activities to provide the bedrock of Assamese culture, and creating a religion that gave shape to a set of new values and social synthesis. The religion he started, Mahapuruxiya Dharma, was part of the Bhakti movement then raging in India, and he inspired bhakti in Assam just as Ramananda, Guru Nanak, Kabir, Basava and Chaitanya Mahaprabhu inspired it elsewhere.
His literary and artistic contributions are living traditions in Assam today. The religion he preached is practiced by a large population, and Sattras (monasteries) that he and his followers established continue to flourish and sustain his legacy. In reverence to his personality, teachings and works, he is a Mahapurusha, or “Great Man”.
