English: Srimanta Sankardev (Pron: ˈʃrɪˌmʌntə ˈʃænkə(r)ˌdeɪvə) (1449–1568) , was a 15th-16th century Assamese Vaishnavite saint-scholar, playwright, social-religious reformer and 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 is named as Eka-Sarana Hari-Nāma Dharma, also referred to as Mahāpurusism or Assam Vaisnavism. It is deeply rooted in the Vedantic philosophy, as contained in the Bhāgavata and the Gitā. Sankardev inspired bhakti in Assam just as Guru Nanak, Ramananda, Kabir, Basava and Chaitanya Mahaprabhu inspired it elsewhere. Thus, the expression Mahāpurushiya Dharma or Mahāpurushism implies faith or devotion to the Mahāpurusha (Nārāyana-Visnu-Krishna).
