When asked about the level of cruelty of judging archAvathAram based on the material that it is made of, piLLai lOkAchAryar mercifully explains that.
aththai mAthruyOni parIkshaiyOdu okkum enRu SAsthram sollum.
SAsthram says that it is comparable to analysing the reproductive organ of one’s mother.
It is said in “archAvathArOpAdhAna vaishNavOthpaththi chinthanam | mAthruyOni parIkshAyAs thulyamAhur manIshiNa: ||” (Analysing the raw material of archA vigraham and judging a vaishNava based on his birth, are said to be at par with analysing the reproductive organ of one’s mother by wise persons). Though SAsthram speaks about both these aspects to be at part with analysing the reproductive organ of one’s mother, this is mainly an example of thinking about one’s mother’s reprodeuctive organ; it is implied that piLLai lOkchAya thinks that analysing the birth of a vaishNava, is more cruel.
mAthru yOni parikshai …
Analysing his mother’s reproductive organ also in the same way, due to previously having analysed the beautiful and the ugly nature of other womens’ reproductive organs.
That is – the amount of sin accrued when one analyses the reproductive organ of the mother will be equivalent to the amount of sins accrued for analysing the form of bhagavAn.
