Practitioners of the religion believe Buxani who claims that during a long spiritual fast in honor of the "Actual God", his prayers were rewarded with the first of an ongoing series of divine revelations.
Believing these revelations to contain precise instructions to attain eternal happiness, Buxani, encouraged by his family, began to compile, in his book Salam, his teachings on how to practice Direct-Worship of the "Actual God".
Direct Worship is characterised by its comparative simplicity to other religions, though it consists of teachings on a broad range of subjects, from traditional topics of religion such as charitable acts and sacrifices to those not normally addressed by the dogma of other religions such as tax policy and government. A fundamental point of Direct Worship is the importance of rationality and logical reasoning.
