Assam is a beautiful state, and river island Majuli is the jewel of the state. This cultural hub which is the birthplace of ‘Vaishnavism’ is the place one really needs to visit. Not a word more, not a word less, the river island Majuli, stands proud with its beauty and euphoria. The spiritualism and the candid art of nature can bring happiness to any bewildered soul who tastes the elixr of beautiful Majuli.
And, here we are with the very 15 reasons as to why Majuli is a living paradise.
1.THE WAY TO MAJULI
Moonsoon. Soothing breeze. Sunset evening. Lonely river. Happy voyage.
Yell at me. This is the way to heaven…
‘Mahabharata’ and ‘Ramayana’ - Well, how about a real dimensional visual experience?
‘MUKHA SHILPA’ works on that subject and never fails to amaze you with tags of Samoguri Satra.
3.BIRDS AND SCENIC HAPPINESS
“Thousands of miles I fly. Thousands of hearts I own.”
It’s all about the homeland of migratory Birds. Indeed an attraction.
The Satras are the backbone of Majuli. It is a living temple, a place which engulfs the culture and tradition of Assamese Culture. In simple words, a place where one can get lost amidst the serenity and tranquility of nature and spiritualism.
5.“A’PONG’ AND ‘SAI MOD’ WAY OF LIFE
Visting Majuli and missing the elixir of APUNG and SAI MOD is just like missing the best hallucinating part of a roller coaster ride. Don’t listen to anyone, do taste it once.
6.‘FISHING’ AND ‘FISH’
“AHAAJ MAJULIR MAAS - BHAT” - the perfect food in MAJULI. Just name a fish, and there it is. In front of you, ready to fill your taste.
7.“THE EPIC CENTER OF VAISHNAVISM”
The purest form of ethnicity and tradition is well preserved in the Satras of Majuli. The ‘Guru-shishya parampara”,”the bhaaona”, “gayan bayan” and the list goes on. A blessing and the purest form of teaching of Sri Sri Shankardev and Sri Sri Madhavdev. Come, feel it once.
8.“RAAS-LEELA” : STORY OF LORD KRISHNA
Thousands of people. Additional transport ferry. Haphazard Majuli. Well, that means the festivities of Raas-Leela (the story of Lord Krishna) are on the mark. Get, set and enjoy the show.
An old tradition holds its trademark. Sri Sri Auniati Satra celebrates Paal Naam festival in the month of Oct-Nov which is a show cast of the Vaishnavite culture, the NAAM.
10.THE SUNSET VIEW
Do you know what it feels like to be alive? I know every person who has ever been to Majuli knows. Believe me, the sunset view can be your ‘Buddha’, the enlightened one.
11.THE PERFECT GREEN WORLD
Do you need to breathe some real fresh air? A real green nature to mull over and write poems on? Well, then definitely, you need to visit MAJULI.
12.THE ART OF POTTERY
Possibly The Best Way To Live Life. Living With Art And Living With Craft, The Salmora Area In Majuli Is Famous For Pottery Making.
Do Earmark Some Time For Food While Visiting Majuli. You Will Be Left Wanting For More.
14.THE BEAUTIFUL MAJULI
Go And Sit Anywhere. Near A Bridge, Near The Banks Of The Brahmaputra, In A Paddy Field, Near The Road, Below A Tree Or Anywhere Inside The Periphery Of 256 Sq Km Of The Island, The Only Word That Describes The Land Is “HEAVEN”. And It Is Indeed A Privilege To Visit This Land Of Elysium.
“The Most Beautiful People We Have Known Are Those Who Have Known Defeat, Known Suffering, Known Struggle, Known Loss, And Have Found Their Way Out Of The Depths. These People Have An Appreciation, A Sensitivity, And An Understanding Of Life That Fills Them With Compassion, Gentleness, And A Deep Loving Concern.” - Kubler Ross.
I Bet This Best Describes The People Out There In Majuli.
