Madhabdev Tithi 2020

Madhabdev Tithi is dedicated to one of the most popular Vaishnava Saints in Assam, who is known as Mahapurush. Saint-poet and author Madhav Deva composed Namghosa and Bhakti Ratnavali – two of the important spiritual works in Assam. Madhabdev Tithi 2020 date is August 20.

One of the most important philosophical teachings of Madhabdev was that prevention is better than cure – avoid getting entangled in fleeting pleasure. Aim for the Supreme Truth.

He was the disciple of Sankardev. Madhabdev meeting with Sankaradeva is termed as a mystic event and a turning point in the spiritual and religious history of Assam. Mahapurush Madhabdev is credited with propagating and improving on the basic ideas and Vaishnavite principles propounded by Sankardev.

Madhabdev religiously carried forward his guru’ s legacy, establishing several satras (monasteries) that have served as the foundation of moderate thoughts and beliefs for centuries in Northeast India. With the blessing of his guru, Madhabdev triggered a cultural renaissance.  Satras, namghars (community prayer halls), kirtan, borgeet and numerous other spiritual literature were produced by him.

It is annually observed on Bhadrapad Shukla Paksha Pratipada Tithi.
