According to the author, the book is the story of God coming in this age, the Kali Yukam or Iron Age, to rule the world by transforming it into the Dharma Yukam. This story of faith weaves together the historical facts about Ayya Vaikundar and his activities with reinterpretations of episodes from the Hindu Puranas mythologies and Itihasas epics.

Though the Citar Hari Gopalan wrote the book Akilam, he claimed that he did not know anything about the contents of the book. He woke up in the morning as usual and he didn’t know what he had written the day before.

Another legend says that he began it that night and continued through the following days. When Ayya Vaikundar avatar was completed, God reached Vaikundam. It contained the regulations of the Ayyavazhi sect. As per the instructions skilattirattu there in Akilam, Ayyavazhi was preached by the Citars far and ammxnai. Akilam is in two parts: Akilathirattu is written as a poem in the Tamil language.

The narration alternates between two subgenres called viruttam and natai. Both subgenres employ poetic devices like alliteration and hyperbatons. In a typical Ammanai style, Akilam maintains more than one context for its verses throughout the text. While the floating ideas of the lines could be comparatively easily communicated, the underlying theme couldn’t be understood unless the background and culture are understood, specifically a foundational knowledge of the Hindu pantheon of gods, the Hindu scriptures, Dharmic concepts and philosophy, and other rudiments of the religion.

The texts written by Hari Gopalan Citar are damaged and thus it is difficult to read the contents. The texts are still preserved as relics by his descendants. There are three versions, which were copied from the first version:.

Of these three, the Panchalankuricchi Version is believed to have copied by from the main version by Hari Gopalan Citar. The other two versions were copied later. Apart from these the Nariyan vilai VersionVarampetran-pantaram Versionand Saravanantheri Version are the other early palm-leaf versions of Akilam. But of these, the Ayya Vaikundar Thirukkudumbam aammanai is often criticized for adding and removing additional verses from various versions.


Some argue that over pages were adulterated. Thirukkudumbam claims that these additional lines were added from the early palm-leaf versions Panchalankuricchi Version and Kottangadu Versionwhich are believed to have been missing from Akilam. This version is not widely accepted.

All the release versions except the Palaramachandran ammabai organize the contents into seventeen sections as per the Thiru Eadu-vasippu partition. The Sentrathisai Ventraperumal version which was released in includes more than two-thousand verses not found in other versions. The Palaramachandran version is the widely accepted and the largest circulated version. The book focuses on the devotion to Vaikundarconsidered to be an aspect of the God Vishnu. It is a poetic narrative in Tamil intended to be an excellent compilation of the various aspects of Indian mythology and beliefs about God.

The first eight chapters of the book narrate the events starting from the creation of the Universe ammsnai the time exactly before the incarnation of Vaikundar. The ninth chapter describes in detail the events taking place in the divine plan during the incarnation of Vaikundar. The last eight chapters focus on the legendary, empirical, historical and mythical aspects pertaining to the life of Vaikundar. The book starts with the explanation akilattriattu by Vishnu to his consort Lakshmi about the evolution of Universe xkilattirattu of human beings.

It is said that akilaytirattu is a total of eight aeons, or yugas, and we are currently in the seventh yuga called Kali Yugathe age of deterioration. It is believed that for each yuga there is a demon that will be destroyed by Vishnu. In the first yuga, Kroni was born.

Vishnu fragmented him into six pieces and each fragment will incarnate as demon in each Yuga. These four yugas do not have parallels in the mainstream Hinduism. The fifth yuga is said to be the Treta Yuga in which the Lord Rama incarnated as human. The sixth yuga is the Dvapara Yugaand there is a short but striking description of the life of Krishna and the Bharatha war. Additionally, there is said to be another event called the birth of Santror or noble people at the closure of Dvapara Yuga.

Kali Yugathe seventh Yuga begins when the evil spirit called Kali not to be confused with Kaali, the mother goddess was born. Kali is believed to be cognate with the ammanzi human beings. Then was born the Neesan, the demon for the Kali Yuga. It is said that this akilattiattu became the king of earth in various places and tortured the lives of the Santror.

Because of this Lord Vishnu got angry and advised Neesan to stop torturing the Santror. But he won’t agree to Vishnu and would prefer to die rather than giving up. In order to stop the rule of Neesan and to bring an end to Kali-yuga, Vishnu made a plan to make Akilattjrattu incarnate as human. Vaikundar akilattirartu believed to be the Son of Vishnu and Lakshmi.

He was beget inside the sea and sent as a human into the land. From the point of incarnation of Vaikundarit is said that he was made the supreme of all godhead, and will destroy Neesan and also the evil Kali Yuga.


It is also said that he will take all righteous people with him into the Vaikundam in the eighth yuga called as Dharma Ammana. Also, nothing is said about the period which follows Dharma yugawhich means that timeline akilartirattu linear, and not circular as believed inside mainstream Hinduism. Akilam teaches a set of values that are theological, sociological and akiattirattu. Of these, the ideas promoted by Akilam spans throughout the various teachings found in Hindu scriptures and present Hinduism in the first half and at the second, a set of revolutionary teachings, in all aspects were focussed.

The theological teachings revolves around the supremacy of Vaikundar while the sociological teachings mainly focus on breaking up the inequalities prevalent in the society.

The Philosophical ideas mainly akilatttirattu the ‘Ultimate oneness ‘ of nature and all living beings. All the major Hindu deities namely BrahmaVishnuShivaSarasvatiLakshmiParvatiSkandaand Ganesha are mentioned directly in the mythology throughout the book.

Also there is an indirect mention about BibleAllah and Quran inside the book. Also the book seems to stress that all texts and scriptures are true and have a share about the truth of the Divine. It is notable that Akilam is heavily against creating religions as it does not mention the term ‘religion’ at least once anywhere in the text and do refers only to God-heads, concepts and scriptures.

It is said that social inequality and destruction of caste ethics are the main aspects of the Kali Yuga. So the entire book focuses on social equality and strictly against Jati or the Indian caste system. But it also says that the ‘Varnashrama Dharma’ system was perfect until the end of Dvapara Yuga. Also, there are traces of references to leading a chaste life and vegetarian diet.

There is a strict condemnation about the religious fundamentalism especially of the Abrahamic traditions. The key philosophy in the book is that human beings are by themselves separated from God by the influence of Kaliand Vaikundar has come for their redemption. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
