avathArikai (Introduction)

piLLai lOkAchAryar is attributing another defect for upAyAntharam (other means, mainly bhakthi yOgam).

sUthram 126

barthru bhOgaththai vayiRu vaLarkkaikku uRuppAkkumApOlE, iruvarkkum avadhyam.

Simple Explanation

Just as the pleasure given to the husband is used as a livelihood by a woman, pursuing other means will lead to blemish for both bhagavAn and AthmA.

vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

barthru …

That is – a wife using the pleasure which she gives to her husband, which should be done without any expectation, as a means to conduct her livelihood, will lead to causing blemish to the husband who likes that wife and to the self, who is the wife of such husband; similarly, an AthmA using bhakthi which is a form of enjoyment acquired by enjoying the greatness of bhagavAn, as the means for mOksham, will lead to causing blemish for ISvaran who united with the AthmA considering him to be a servitor and for the AthmA who is known as the servitor of such ISvaran. piLLAn too explained this in the following manner – having bhakthi yOgam as upAyam is similar to a wife sleeping with her husband in the night and forcefully asking for a fee while waking up in the morning.
