prema-phala — the fruit of love of God; pāki' — becoming mature; paḍe — falls down; mālī — the gardener; āsvādaya — tastes; latā avalambi' — taking advantage of the growing bhakti-latā; mālī — the gardener; kalpa-vṛkṣa pāya — reaches the desire tree in Goloka Vṛndāvana.
"When the fruit of devotional service becomes ripe and falls down, the gardener tastes the fruit and thus takes advantage of the creeper and reaches the desire tree of the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa in Goloka Vṛndāvana.
