Thirukkural’s Life Ethics

திருக்குறள் காட்டும் வாழ்வியல் நெறிகள்

Keywords: Creativity, Literature, Opposites, Society, Individual


In the history of Tamil literature, it is most appropriate to call the ‘Pathinenkezhkanakku noolgal’ as the Sangamaruviya period as “Nyadhi or Charitable Books”. The Thirukkural, which is referred to here as the Muppal literature, is described as an Akshaya patra given by the Iradivenpas as 1330 Arumpas by Valluvar Perunthagai. The contents of literature are fundamentally constructive in terms of the individual and the society. But they strongly condemn the opposing views; Valluvar, whether it is an individual life or a society, carries forward the four things and all the aspects required by the man who lives effectively within the class. Therefore, this study is not merely analogous, but the literary treasure of Thirukkural will guide the present life as well. It is noteworthy that this study makes it clear that from any point of view, it is capable of providing a suitable course for the purpose, a suitable answer to any question that is asked, and a suitable solution to any problem that is stated. The basis for the question of the study was whether literature reflected not only the time of their origin, but also whether literatures were constructive, counterproductive, and guiding modern life. The strongest reasons for this are the things that have been said for ages, as well as the prevailing views and conceptions of Thirukkural.
