When asked “In such case, by the rule ‘aprathishidhdhamanumatham’ (not stopping implies permission to proceed) – as non-avoidance implies permission, is bhagavAn’s permission the reason for AthmA’s loss?” piLLai lOkAchAryar mercifully responds.
ivanudaiya anumathi pERRukku hEthu allAdhAppOlE avanudaiya anumathiyum izhavukku hEthuvanRu.
Just as the AthmA’s permission is not the reason for AthmA’s gain, bhagavAn’s permission is not the reason for AthmA’s loss.
That is – the permission given by Athma who is protected, to be protected by bhagavAn, is only differentiating the AthmA from achith (insentient) and hence is not the reason for attaining bhagavAn; similarly, the permission of bhagavAn who is the protector, to keep the AthmA in samsAram, is to uphold the order of SAsthram which is his own commandments, and to wait to accept the AthmA based on his taste, it will not be the reason for AthmA not attaining bhagavAn .
