|Madhya-lila||Chapter 10: The Lord's Return to Jagannatha Puri|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Madhya 10.1
tam vande gaura-jaladam
svasya yo darsanamritaih
tam -- unto Him; vande -- I offer my respectful obeisances; gaura -- Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; jala-dam -- rain cloud; svasya -- of Himself; yah -- He who; darsana-amritaih -- 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.
