People praise the tirukural but in practice they cheris the Gita which is directly opposed to it !Those who study the kural deeply will certainly attain a conciousness of self-respect. Knowledge of politics and knowledge of economics are all embedded in it.

It is better to read ten kurals for knowledge, than a hundred songs of Kamba Ramayana or two hundred songs of Periyapurana, or Kanda Purana.

In the Kural there is a chapter on invocation to God. But there is no place in it for principle of idol worship.

The Kural is a treasure house of knowledge. It is a work bound of reason.
