piLLai lOkAchAryar is showing AchArya’s greatness through another way.
AchAryanukku sadhruSa prathyupakAram paNNalAvadhu vibhUthi chathushtayamum ISvara dhvayamum uNdAgil.
To respond in kind for the favour done by AchArya is only possible if there exist four vibhUthis (worlds) and two ISvarans.
That is – responding in kind for the favour done by AchAryan, who brought the two vibhUthis (paramapadham and samsAram) and ISvaran who is the owner of the vibhUthis, at our disposal, is possible only if there exist another two similar worlds and another ISvaran who owns such worlds. It is said “yO dhadhyAth bhagavath gyAnam kuryAth dharmOpasEvanam | kruthsnAm vA pruthivIm dhadhyAn na thaththulyam kathanchana ||” (For the AchArya who mercifully grants us bhagavath dhyAnam (meditation on lord) and dharma upadhESam (instructing noble principles), one should offer all of the samsAram and paramapadham; even if that were done, that will not match the knowledge given by AchArya). With this – AchAryan’s greatness of being a great benefactor, whose favour cannot be returned in kind, is explained.
