Kumud also survives and her unconscious body is caught by a lady ascetic, Chandraavali. The ashram ascetics realize the facts of the past life of these two, and try their best to reunite them.
In this attempt, they take them both to an isolated cave on the peak of Chiranjeevshrung. Here, spending four days and nights together, they undergo a mystical experience and they realise their goal of life. However, there is no consensus on the marriage of Kumud to Saraswatichandra.
