For those who are interested in following either the Karma yoga or the Gnyana yoga or the Bhakti yoga, the Thirumanthra will help remove the obstacles that prevent them (who have taken its help) from starting in that path and will help them in completing their journeys in that path.

Sri PBA Swami's Sarartha Deepikai:
The Thirumanthra is further celebrated by showing that it will help support the Karma, Gnyana and Bhakti yogas.

As explained by Sri Alavandar in Gitartha Sangraha "karmayogas tapastIrtha dAnayagnyAdiasEvanam", the karma yoga is the use of penance, following rituals such as homas, etc. faithfully, completely and till the time that they bear the fruit seeked. "gnyAnayogo jitasvAntai: parishuddhaatmani sthiti:" - gnyAna yoga is winning over the senses and forever focusing the thought and meditating on the pure soul. "bhaktiyoga: paraikAntaprItyaa: dhyaanaadishu sthiti:" - bhakti yoga is having great love only to the paramapurusha and fixing that love via meditation, archana, etc.

Amongst these yogas, for those who wish to follow the karma yoga, if they perform japa and homa with the Thirumanthra, it will remove the obstacles that prevent them from even beginning this yoga and continue to help such that they always stay in that path. If they chose the gnyana yoga, as they recite the manthra, it will remove all obtsacles in following this path and will help them fulfill their journey. If they chose the bhakti yoga, and take the Thirumanthra's help, it will remove the obtsacles to that path and will keep growing their bhakti all the time.
