Uniqueness of Tamil language
Can our experience be systematically and logically explained?
Can we find systematic and grammatical explanation for our personal experiences in the languages of the world?
Grammatical explanation for personal experience – (‘Agap porulh’):
Careful analysis on this subject reveals that it is systematically and that too grammatically explained in Tamil alone. Separate grammar had been developed in Tamil for the systematic and logic explanation for personal experience in Tamil, which is known as ‘Porulh Ilakkanam’ that means a grammar for our personal experience., where as all the other languages of the world have four rudiments among the following five.
1). That which is written is known as ‘Yezhuththu’ (Script or a letter)
2). That which is joined together by written letters is known as ‘Sol’ (Word).
3). Each word contains ‘Porulh’ especially about ‘Agap porulh’ and ‘Purap ’
Porulh, i.e., ‘Subjective sense’ and Objective Sense’).
4). Joining the words together is a sentence, known as ‘Yappu’ (‘prosody’).
5). Every sentence or Yappu must have a proper array of the above elements
which is described as ‘Ani’ (‘a rhetorical embellishment’)
Tamil alone has grammatical explanation for all the above said five rudiments. Apart from Tamil, no other language has systematic grammatical explanation for ‘Porulh’ i.e., theme or subject matter that pertains to the lifestyle of the people.
In Tamil, theme or subject matter that pertains to the lifestyle of human beings (‘porulh’) had been grammatically classified as
(1) Subjective Sense that relates to the theme of human love / divine love (‘Agap porulh’)
(2) Objective Sense that relates to the theme of war, bravery etc., (‘Purap porulh’)
Individual soul experiencing supreme bliss by experiencing Supreme Soul is explained beautifully in Tamil.
Living being with sixth sense – ‘Uyarthinai’ :
Living beings are classified in Tamil into 6 categories on the basis of ‘senses’. Human being alone has ‘sixth sense’ and root cause for sixth sense is known as ‘Soul’ which is entirely different from Spirit / Life.
Tamil grammar divides all beings, animate and inanimate into two categories namely ‘Uyarthinai’ and ‘Agrinai’. Interestingly the distinguishing factor used here is the soul. Those who endowed with souls (human only) belong to ‘Vuyarthinai’ (higher category) and the rest fall in the ‘Agrinai’ (lower category). This kind of distinction is unique to Tamil culture and Tamil language. This kind of classification is not seen in any of the languages of the world.
The study on ‘Soul’ – ‘Soulology’ :
All the living beings from one sense to five senses have only two entities i.e., Body and Life, but only human beings have the third entity called ‘Soul’ which differentiates human beings from other creatures. The study of this specific entity i.e., ‘soul’ is known as ‘Soulology’. So far, in the world, at large,
1). The study that pertains to material body is known as ‘Science’.
2). The study that pertains to life is known as ‘Philosophy’ and
3). The study that pertains to God is known as ‘Theology’.
All these three dimensions will not be meaningful unless and until a study on ‘Soul’, the root cause for the sixth sense and for the formation of the said thoughts, is developed. This study has not grown in any other languages of the world except in Tamil. Indeed it is important to note that in Tamil alone the study on Soul is developed sharply and systematically in grammatical form and that too in the form of aphorism.
Experience of ‘Divine Unity’ is magnificently explained in Tamil literature and Grammar.
Without having a in-depth knowledge in Tamil and Tamil literature one cannot understand the systematic explanation for personal experience of both human and Divine love, elucidated in Tamil literature and grammar.
