Summary:
This book presents translations of eight closely related 18th- and 19th-century Bengali folk tales centered on Satya Pīr and the people he helps. While the worship of Satya Pīr is the ostensible motivation for the tales, they really demonstrate his miraculous powers, which authenticate him as a legitimate object of worship.
