When asked “You have highlighted many defects in other upAyams in this manner. Is there no defect in the upAyam named prapaththi?” piLLai lOkAchAryar mercifully explains.
prapathyupAyaththukku ikkuRRangaL onRum illai.
For the upAyam named prapaththi (surrender), these defects are not present.
Starting from being contradictory to one’s true nature up to being difficult to perform, are all reflected upon here.
It is said that none of those defects is present in prapaththi.
ikkuRRangaL onRum illai
Since it is said that none of these defects is present, it appears that there is another defect. That is – while prapaththi is never actually the means, when looked at superficially, it is qualified to be considered as the means.
