Amarnama is in all probability the composition of Dhadi Nath Mal, the bard of the Guru Hargobind who survived upto the times of Guru Gobind Singh’s visit to Nanded during the last phase of his life. He composed the var in Persian, the very first ballad cited by him in this language as the Sikhs over there were conversant with Persian rather than Punjabi. It was scribed in gurmukhi script.

The bard has given a profile of the socio-religious conditions of the time adequately while explaining the religious concerns of Guru Gobind Singh. Certain facts have been delineated afresh while others have been confirmed and verified which is a significant step towords an approach to authentic historical writing. Of course, he has touched very important themes of Sikh history pertaining to the last phase of the career of the tenth Guru. Never-theless, he has omitted certain incidents and episodes which defeat the purpose of giving a compete and precise account.
