tam—unto Him; vande—I offer my respectful obeisances; gaura—Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; jala-dam—rain cloud; svasya—of Himself; yah—He who; darsana-amrtaih—by the nectar of the audience; viccheda—because of separation; avagraha—scarcity of rain; mlana—morose, dried up; bhakta—devotees; sasyani—food grains; ajivayat—saved.
I offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who is compared to a cloud that pours water on fields of grain, which are like devotees suffering due to a shortage of rain. Separation from Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is like a drought, but when the Lord returns, His presence is like a nectarean rain that falls on all the grains and saves them from perishing.
