Hinduism - What Is The Padinenkilkanakku Or The Eighteen Minor Works?



Padinenkilkanakku is a collection of eighteen minor works of literature. 

It is a collection of early Tamil works of literature that was completed by the late fifth century C.E. and was given the name Padinenkilkanakku. 

All of these works have a moral focus and are intended to instill ethical or religious principles in the listeners. 

The Tirukkural and the Naladiyar are two of the most well-known instances in this collection.
