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.

    தம்முடையதல்லாத பொருளை வருந்திக் காப்பாற்றினாலும் ஊழால் நில்லாமற் போய்விடும்; தம்முடைய பொருளை வெளியே கொண்டுபோய்க் கொட்டினாலும் ஊழால் போகாது.

    in English
    Things not your own will yield no good, howe'er you guard with pain;
    Your own, howe'er you scatter them abroad, will yours remain.
  • Meaning
    Whatever is not conferred by fate cannot be preserved although it be guarded with most painful care; and that, which fate has made his, cannot be lost, although one should even take it and throw it away.
