Ramalinga Adigalar is credited with giving clarity and simplicity to Tamil poetry, which has been rich for more than 20 centuries and brought about a positive turn in the last century. It guides mankind to be completely liberated from suffering without getting buried in religion and philosophy. Vallalar's divine policy was in a manner that alleviated the sufferings of the poor and needy. It was aimed at freeing people from superstition. His religious policy was neither blind nor crude. His doctrine of God arising out of the practice of Saivam led him to the path of pure righteousness and guided him. The purpose of this article is to examine from Vallalar's point of view how Thiruvarutpa directs mankind to live with dignity without enmity and to rise to become great men.
