Ariel , [30] The Kural text was authored by Thiruvalluvar lit. Saint Valluvar. No other authentic pre-colonial texts have been found to support any legends about the life of Valluvar. Starting around early 19th century, numerous inconsistent legends on Valluvar in various Indian languages and English were published. Vaiyapuri Pillai derived his name from "valluvan" a Paraiyar caste of royal drummers and theorized that he was "the chief of the proclaiming boys analogous to a trumpet-major of an army".

Along with various versions of his birth circumstances, many state he went to a mountain and met the legendary Agastya and other sages. The alleged low birth, high birth and being a pariah in the traditional accounts are also doubtful. This has led almost every major religious group in India , including Christianity , to claim the work and its author as one of their own. This can be observed in his treatment of the concept of ahimsa or non-violence , which is the principal concept of both the religions.

He theorizes that Valluvar was probably "a learned Jain with eclectic leanings", who was well acquainted with the earlier Tamil literature and also had knowledge of the Sanskrit texts. The first claim of Valluvar as an authority appears in a 16th-century Jain text. Hindu teachers have mapped his teachings in the Kural literature to the teachings found in Hindu texts. Each kural or couplet contains exactly seven words, known as cirs, with four cirs on the first line and three on the second, following the kural metre.

A cir is a single or a combination of more than one Tamil word. However, the subdivisions beyond these three, as found in some surviving manuscripts and commentaries, are likely later additions because there are variations between these subtitles found in manuscripts and those in historical commentaries.
