piLLai lOkAchAryar mercifully responds to the question “How do we know about these two types of kainkaryams which are to be performed?”
kIzhch chonna bhagavath kainkaryam aRivadhu, SAsthra mukaththAlE; AchArya kainkaryam aRivadhu, SAsthra mukaththAlum AchArya vachanaththAlum.
Previously explained bhagavth kainkaryam (service to bhagavAn) can be known through SAsthram; AchArya kainkaryam (service to AchArya) can be known through SAsthram and the instructions of the AchArya.
kIzhch chonna …
Among those which were mentioned in vasthavyam (place of residence) etc previously.
bhagavath kainkaryam aRivadhu SAsthra mukaththAlE
Since bhagavAn will not mercifully speak directly to the prapanna now, he should know about bhagavath kainkaryam through SAsthram such as Sruthi, smruthi etc which reveal about the same.
AchArya kainkaryam aRivadhu, SAsthra mukaththAlum AchArya vachanaththAlum
One should know about AchArya kainkaryam through SAsthram which reveals how to serve AchArya and his direct instructions where he will reveal his likes and dislikes.
