Thirukural written by Thiruvalluvar consists of three books, the first book on Aram (the Way or Dharma), the second on Porul (Material or Artha) and the third on Inbam (Joy or Kama).

There are 37 chapters in the first book, the first four called Payiram or Prefactory Matter, the next twenty about Ill-Aram (the householder’s Dharma) and the next thirteen about Turavaram (the path of Renunciation). 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.

    உட்பகை கொண்டிருப்பவருக்கு அஞ்சித் தன்னைக் காத்துக் கொள்ளுதல் வேண்டும். அவ்வாறு காத்துக் கொள்ளவில்லை யென்றால், அந்த உட்பகை மண்பாண்டத்தை அறுக்கும் கருவி போலத் தவறாமல் அழித்து விடும்.

    In troublous time 'twill deeper wound than potter's knife.
  • Meaning
    Fear internal enmity and guard yourself; (if not) it will destroy (you) in an evil hour, as surely as the tool which cuts the potter's clay.
