1.Creation of the world 

2.Source of dharma 

3.The dharma of the four social class. 

4.Law of karma, rebirth and final liberation. 

The text is composed in metric Shlokas (verses), in the form of a dialogue between an exalted teacher and disciples who are eager to learn about the various aspects of Dharma.
