No wonder that this is in the first place. More or less the whole world ruled and dominates by Christians and they facilitates for spreading this book.

Thirukural by Thiruvalluvar Report Abuse
Tamil is the language which has given "Thirukural" the poetry which is common for all the relegions and for all the countries. This Thirukural is the second book that have been translated in more languages where Bible stands first. Bible is the holy book only for Christian community but this Thirukural can be kept as Holy book for all the relegions and for all the communities in the world.

Never go with the Wikipedia under "List of literary works by number of translations". Read the very second line in the article "This is an incomplete list, which may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness. You can help by expanding it with reliably sourced entries". Thirukural should be right up there along with bible.

I checked in Wikipedia under: "List of literary works by number of translations" and the list is different: 1. Bible 2527 lang (469 complete) 2. Pinocchio 260 lang 3. What Does the Bible Really Teach? 244 lang 4. Pilgrim's Progress 200 lang

The Thirukkurrall, even though is said to be general, actually hints the most ancient Dravidian philosophy, Saiva Sithaandham. There are many references to Padhi, Pasu, Aannavam, Karmam and Maayai. In the 9th couplet, yeNguNam refers to the 8 Special Natures of God (Siva). Further indication of this work refering to Siva, when God is concerned, is the term vaalaRivan; Saiva Sithaandhins refer to Siva as the Transcendental Omniscience and to Sathi and the Pervasive Omniscience. There is questions about the authenticity of the Bible as, what we have today, is a work put together by Emperor Constantine and it is well known that the 'human' feel, as portrayed by the Gnostic Bible, has been removed from the character of Jesus to make Him seem more alien, if not, Godly. So, the most authentic book translated into the most number of languages, is the Thirukkurrall, making Thiruvalluvar Naayanaar the most translated author as well.

This is a book ever youth in this world. The given ideas and messages can be applicable for all times and for the whole human beings and living things. The wonder is this book is not related to any religion and general for all.
