The phrase Dev Taru added to title literally means godly tree and accordingly its subparts are called skandhs (branches). Skand Asare further subdivided into adhyayas (chapters). The first part called Purvardh, lit. earlier half, contains two skandhs and 61 adhyayas while Part II, Uttarardh, lit. the latter half, has three skandhs and 84 adhyayas. The author describes the four holy men as spiritual adepts of the highest rank, and revels in a detailed exposition of their views. The language the author uses is sadhukan, a dialect common among the sadhus, and the style is anecdotal.
