Dohavali contains 573 Dohas (couplets) based on dharma and morality. Dharma is a corollary of religion and morality is a corollary of dharma. All religions enjoin moral codes of living for human beings. Tulsidas commences Dohavali reiterating his faith in Saguna Rama, designating him to be the Divine Author of Morality. He describes Illusions and emotions of earthly life. He compares the Glory of Love to the chaatak bird's legendary unswerving devotion to a few drops of autumun's rain to allay its thirst. In this background of religion and dharma, Tulsidas enumerates specific moral qualities relevant to social life, individual behaviours and collective moralities concerning responsibilities of the state towards its citizens and duties of citizens to the state. The work concludes with a short epilogue.
