The second book on Porul contains seventy chapters, the first twenty dealing with Kings and their Duties, the succeeding thirty two chapters with the other matters concerning the State, and next thirteen, with Sundry Concerns. The third book on Inbam contains twenty five chapters, the first seven being on Pre Marital Love (Kalavu) and the next eighteen on Marital Love.

There are 133 chapters in all, each chapter contains ten distichs in the metre known as Kural and the work itself is now called by that name.

    அன்போடு பொருந்தி நின்ற உடலே உயிர் நிலை பெரும் உடம்பாகும்; அன்பில்லாதவர் உடல் எலும்பைத் தோலால் மூடப்பெற்ற எலும்புக்கூடே ஆகும்.

    Bodies of loveless men are bony framework clad with skin;
    Then is the body seat of life, when love resides within.
  • Meaning
    That body alone which is inspired with love contains a living soul: if void of it, (the body) is bone overlaid with skin.
