This last chapter focuses on the different chapters in Devnārāyan’s biography, which is largely qualified by the various instances of the testimony he provides. The aim is not to furnish an exhaustive description of each and every event, but to provide a selection of moments from the journey of the god’s life. The sequence followed is supplied by the narrative’s own progression, beginning with Devnārāyan’s birth. This path of description makes possible, along with an acquaintance with the narrative’s religious and symbolic meanings, an appreciation of the details of the story itself.
