avathArikai (Introduction)

When asked “But why can’t we get mOksham by preforming bhakthi yOgam, just as unmatching sea shell and lemon are offered to get precious gem and kingdom in return?” piLLai lOkAchAryar says “AthmA is not even qualified to do so”.

sUthram 124

thAn dharidhran AgaiyAlE thanakkuk kodukkalAvadhu onRillai.

Simple Explanation

Since AthmA is devoid of any possession, he cannot offer anything.

vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

thAn …

That is – in those examples, one at least owns a sea shell or lemon which can be offered to get something valuable in return; but here, unlike that, as said in thiruvAimozhi 2.9.9 “yAnE nI en udaimaiyum nIyE” (I am yours and my possession is yours as well), AthmA and AthmA’s posession are both owned by bhagavAn and hence AthmA does not have anything in him. It is hence explained that there is nothing which can be given as the reason for the result.
