Ulam means mind. Mind is filled with thoughts and life is based on those thoughts.  Just as water changes depending on the color of the ground, based on thoughts mind hardens into rock or melts into ice. A caged mind is more depressing than an ordinary prison. Thirumantram says that the doors of the mind can be opened by pure thought. Thirumantram brings together various fields like psychology, biology, ministry, medicine, philosophy and monasticism to highlight the ethics of life in many ways. In this way, psychologists have conducted research based on psychoanalytic principles. Thus, this review examines Thirumular's songs through psychoanalytic principles.
