The Thirumanthra will act as the upAya in providing to those who utter it through japa and homa, that which they seek: be it wealth in this and the next worlds, kaivalya which is ATma bhOga, or His lotus feet which is the parama purushArththa.

Sri PBA Swami's Sarartha Deepikai:
Previously it was stated that Thirumanthra will give to everyone what they seek when they recite it. That is being explained here.

Wealth is of two kinds. One is the wealth of this world which is living like a king. Attaining Swarga and being there with some title and power is wealth of the other world. Kaivalyam is the realization of the soul; that is attaining Atma jnAna and enjoying that realization. The parama purushArttha is bhagavat prApti; that is, attaing His lotus feet and the fruit of kainkarya. The Thirumanthra will act as the sAdana and through the acts of japa and homa will give all these fruits to those who seek them ("aihalowkikamaishvaryam svargAtyam pAralowkikam, kaivalyam bagavantanjca mantroyam sAdayishyati").
