Abstract: Srimanta sankardeva, the great soul of Assam, played a pivotal role in the formation of a larger assamese society. During the time of sankardeva’s birth, the atmosphere of Assam was clouded by many uncivil practices(Goswami 2018) .Sankardeva was able to open the eyes of all the people by spreading the seeds of “ Eka –sarana nama dharma” in the beautiful land of Assam. Sankardeva envisioned Assam as a divine garden where all the people of different ethnic groups and tribes live their lives. He broke down all the instability by uniting them through the thread of bhakti.
