avathArikai (Introduction)

piLLai lOkAchAryar mercifully explains the defects arising due to other upAyams (means) causing destruction of the true nature of the self.

sUthram 120

vardhathE mE mahath bhayam” engaiyAlE bhaya janakam; “mA Sucha:” engaiyAlE Soka janakam.

Simple Explanation

Just as it is said in jithanthE sthOthram 9 “vardhathE mE mahath bhayam” (causing great fear), these cause fear; similarly, just as it is said in SrI bhagavath gIthA 18.66 “mA Sucha:” (Don’t worry), these cause sorrow.

vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

vardhathE …

That is –

  • as said in jithanthE sthOthram 9 “kAlEshvapicha sarvEshu dhikshu sarvAsu chAchyutha | SarIrEcha gathauchApi vardhathE mE mahath bhayam ||” (Oh achyutha who does not abandon devotees! When I see all the times, all the holy abodes, my body and other upAyams, I am getting very scared), it is said “I am getting very scared seeing the time, place and body which are apt for pursuing other upAyams and seeing those other upAyams too”
  • after hearing about the other upAyams arjuna became anguished, and hence krishNa instructed the upAyam that is apt for the true nature of the self (i.e. prapaththi) and mercifully removed the sorrow

From these two, we can understand that these prApakAntharams (other means) which are contrary to the true nature of the self, will cause fear and sorrow for gyAnis.
