Although Sevapanthis are counted a sect among the Sikhs, they depart in certain respects from the Sikh way of life : a Sevapanthi saint, for instance, lives the life of a recluse renouncing all worldly attachments and remains celibate. Consequently, the work is an amalgam of Sikh and Sevapanthi teachings. Humility, service, generosity, detachment and contentment are the common virtues recommended. Yet, contrary to Sikh principle, there is an emphasis on celibacy. The work contains sakhis from the lives of several of the bhaktas such as Sadhna (83), Sukhdev (88), and Darshan (214) rehearsing moral precepts and values.
