Thirukkuṛaḷ (Tamil: also known as the Kural), is a classic of couplets or Kurals (1330 rhyming Tamil couplets) or aphorisms.It was authored by Thiruvalluvar, a poet who is said to have lived anytime between 2nd century BC and 5th century AD.
Although the exact period of its composition is still disputed, scholars agree that it was produced in the late Tamil Sangam period. The Thirukkural expounds on various aspects of life and 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 known: Tamil marai (Tamil Vedas); poyyamozhi (words that never fail); and Daiva nool (divine text}.
