Saint Thiruvalluvar is the author of this Universal Veda, Thirukkural. It is in poetic from (Tamil) and it is translated in English and for the welfare of the readers, it is given as verses by Swamiji Iraianban. Thirukkural is a light of literal, spiritual, ancient and cultural customs, the survey of Tamil language’s limitless profound literacy. Though it is having so many titles, when we mention its name as Thirukkural, everyone can know its depth of literal and spiritual harmony and it is considered to be the essence of all Vedas, puranas and dharma shasthras. Thirukkural has a salient feature, it is told by a man (valluvar) to the entire mankind to lift the humanity to the highest peak of Eternity. Thirukkural is 1330 in number: in 133 chapters, each chapter consists of 10 couplets, emphasises Virtue (Homely, Ascetic), Wealth (Royalty, Ministry, Nation and Livelihood), and Love (Wedding, Married Affection etc.). In this divine authorisation there is no sign of any name of God particularly and that is why it is honoured by all beyond religions, regions, sects and creeds. Thirukkural begins with the letter “Aa” and ends with “In” and this denotes the Tamil language’s literacy, in Tamil “Aa” is the 1st letter and “In” is the 246th, last letter. On the whole, apart from Thirukkural there is nothing more to state as literature and dharma. Thirukkural is an ever-living guidance to mankind and it is the Lighthouse through which humanity can reach the Almighty very easily.

Subramanian was blessed by his Guru and the Guru called him as “the lover of God and God’s love is his”, in this sense, he is called as Iraianban and his admirers respectfully call him as Swamiji.

Truly, he is an outstanding personality, but he is not interested to show his eminence to all.
