avathArikai (Introduction)

After mercifully explaining that both bhakthi and prapaththi, which relate to bhagavAn among the four upAyams (means) explained previously, will become inapplicable for such a person (who is dependent on AchAryan’s mercy), piLLai lOkAchAryar considers in his divine heart to show vEdhic proof for svagatha svIkAram and paragatha svIkAram relating to AchAryan which were shown respectively in sUthram 446 “AchAryanaiyum thAn paRRum paRRu” and sUthram 447 “AchAryAbhimAnamE uththArakam” and first shows proof for svagatha svIkAram as means.

sUthram 459

pazhudhAgAdhu onRu aRindhEn” engiRa pAttai pUrvOpAyaththukku pramANamAga anusandhippadhu.

Simple Explanation

nAnmugan thiruvandhAdhi 89pazhudhAgAdhu onRu aRindhEn” pAsuram is to be meditated upon as the evidence for former means (svagatha svIkAram).

vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

pazhudhAgAdhu … 

That is – the most trustworthy thirumazhisaip pirAn mercifully said in nAnmugan thiruvandhAdhi 89pazhudhAgAdhu onRu aRindhEn” pAsuram that I have come to know a means which never fails; emperumAn is mercifully reclining in thiruppARkadal as the refuge for those devotees who surrender unto him; there are very wise devotees who perform favourable activities [kainkaryams] thinking about such emperumAn’s divine feet’s unfailing nature; those who surrender to such devotees and become liberated, will eliminate the sins which have been inseparable from the AthmA, will open the divine gates of SrIvaikuNtam, will remain there with abundant knowledge etc, and distinguished being engaged in thadhIya kainkaryam (service to devotees); this pAsuram should be meditated upon as the evidence for svagatha svIkAram towards AchAryan.

With this – it is explained that though svagatha svIkAram is tinged with pride and defect, it will not fail in achieving the goal. It is also explained in bhArathwAja samhithA that just as paragatha svIkAram, svagatha svIkAram too will not fail in achieving the goal saying “guruNAyObhimanyEna gurumvA yObhimanyEna | thAvubhau paramAm sidhdhim niyamAdhupagachchatha: ||” (Both the person who is mercifully considered by AchAryan and that person who considers AchAryan with great respect/love, will reach paramapadham in proper manner).
