This chapter examines the related discourses on time and history that the narrative deals with. The materials for this are primarily provided by the oral telling of the narrative, recited by Śri Hukamārām Bhopā, along with the opening passages of a recently printed version of the narrative, told by another singer, Śri Anandārām. In addition, there is also a reference to a shorter orally told story that, like the printed text, also deals with the “origins” of Devnārāyan's main devotees, the Gujars.
