avathArikai (Introduction)

piLLai lOkAchAryar repeats the question of those who think “Abhimukhyam (Being favourable) towards bhagavAn is due to his mercy, but adhvEsham (not having hatred) is due to [past] good deeds” and answers that.

sUthram 395

bhagavadhAbimukhyam sukrathaththAl anRikkE bhagavath krupaiyAlE piRakkiRadhu. adhvEsham sukruthaththAlE ennil; indha pala viSEshaththukku aththai sAdhanamAkka oNNAdhu.

Simple Explanation

When it is said “Being favourable towards bhagavAn occurs in a person due to bhagavAn’s mercy and not due to one’s [past] good deeds. But not having hatred towards him is by [past] good deeds” piLLai lOkAchAryar says “That cannot be made as the means for the [great] result which is attained”.

vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

bhagavadhAbhimukhyam …

That is – for the chEthana who was turning away from bhagavAn forever, the favourable attitude towards bhagavAn occurs by bhagavAn’s mercy only instead of his own good deeds; if we try to say that not having hatred towards bhagavAn, which must occur before becoming favourable towards him, occurs by the chEthana’s good deeds, that cannot be said; that is because, this adhvEsham is the first among the many noble qualities to occur and is the seed for the liberation, once incidental good deeds cannot be attributed as the cause for such adhvEsham. Thus, it is implied that bhagavAn’s mercy is to be highlighted as the cause for adhvEsham also.
