avathArikai (Introduction)

When asked “What are those four states?” piLLai lOkAchAryar mercifully answers.

sUthram 290

adhAvadhu – gyAna dhaSaiyum, varaNa dhaSaiyum, prApthi dhaSaiyum, prApyAnubhava dhaSaiyum.

Simple Explanation

That is – the state of being knowledgeable, the state of accepting bhagavAn as the means, the state of reaching bhagavAn and the state of enjoying bhagavAn after reaching him.

vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

adhAvadhu …

gyAna dhaSai

Acquiring knowledge through the instructions of AchArya and thereafter.

varaNa dhaSai

Accepting sarvESvaran who is sidhdhOpAya bhUtha (established means) as one’s means.

prApthi dhaSai

Having all sorrows of samsAra removed and reaching his divine feet.

prApya anubhava dhaSai

Reaching bhagavAn who is the goal and enjoying him.

Such anubhava janitha prIthi kAritha kainkaryam (enjoying bhagavAn which leads to love towards him which leads towards service to him) is parama purushArtham (ultimate goal of the self).

The sequence is as in the first state of acquiring true knowledge, result of such knowledge which is accepting bhagavAn as the means, result of such acceptance which is reaching bhagavAn, result of such attainment which is experiencing bhagavAn, result of such experience which is love towards bhagavAn and result of such love which is service to bhagavAn; that is why, kainkaryam is the final state and the previous four states are stepping stones towards such kainkaryam.
