avathArikai (Introduction)

piLLai lOkAchAryar mercifully answers the questions “What are the causes for these four aspects starting with agyAnam?”

sUthram 293

agyAnaththukkadi aparAdham; apUrthikkadi gyAna pUrthi; Arthikkadi alAbham; abhinivESaththukkadi azhagu.

Simple Explanation

The cause for prapanna’s ignorance is [past] offence; cause for incompleteness is complete knowledge; cause for sorrow is non-attainment of the goal; cause for the great desire is emperumAn’s beauty.

vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

agyAnaththukku …

That is – the cause for the ignorance which is manifested in the state of ignorance, is the offence which is done since time immemorial in the form of akruthya karaNa (doing forbidden acts), kruthya akaraNa (ignoring ordained acts) etc.

The cause for the incompleteness which is manifested in the state of accepting bhagavAn as the means, is [AchArya’s] complete knowledge which reveals the fact that one has nothing in the self to attain the goal.

The cause for the sorrow which is manifested in the state of reaching bhagavAn, is not attaining bhagavAn, the goal, quickly enough.

The cause for the great desire which is manifested in the state of enjoying bhagavAn, is his beauty which will make one desire for more such experience without letting one being satisfied with what was already experienced.
