Summary

When the princess Devanaguy falls into a deep trance-like sleep, she is visited by the god Vishnu: who causes her to fall pregnant with his holy child, Christna.Devanaguy’s sleep is prolonged supernaturally by Vishnu: allowing the god to relate to her his divine secrets through a series of ecstatic visions. Among the mysteries revealed to Devanaguy, she is shown how the gods will shortly powerfully intervene directly in human affairs. When the princess finally re-awakens: she is awestruck by her experiences, and bursts into a spontaneous rhapsody of praise.Throughout her rapturous intercourse with Vishnu, Devanaguy boldly continues to desire answers to mankind's profoundest questionings: - is it possible for mere mortals to comprehend the divine wisdom of the gods? - can be it really be true that divine beings care enough for mankind to want to intervene in human affairs: to do them good?(Introduction by Godsend)
