When asked “How can you say like this? Isn’t one known by the village, clan etc from which one comes?” piLLai lOkAchAryar mercifully responds.
grAma kulAdhigaLAl varum pEr anarththa hEthu.
The name derived from one’s village, clan etc are reasons for disaster.
That is, as being known by one’s native village, clan etc will cause ahankAra, it will lead to disaster in the form of svarUpa hAni (damaging the true nature of self which is different from body). Hence, it is implied that AthmA should not be identified by those aspects.
