Thirukkural is a classic Tamil sangam literature consisting of 1330 couplets or Kurals.It was authored by Thiruvalluvar.
The Thirukkural is one of the most important works in the Tamil language. This is reflected in some of the other names by which the text is given by such as Tamil marai (Tamil Vedas); poyyamozhi (words that never fail); and Deiva nool (divine text).The book is considered to precede Manimekalai and Silapathikaram since they both acknowledge the Kural text.
Thirukkural is structured into 133 chapters, each containing 10 couplets, for a total of 1330 couplets. The 133 chapters are grouped into three sections:
( Arathupaal ) righteousness
( Porutpaal ) wealth
( Kamathupaal ) love
