sañcārya — by empowering; rāma-abhidha — of the name Rāma; bhakta-meghe — in the cloudlike devotee; sva-bhakti — of His own devotional service; siddhānta — of conclusions; caya — all collections; amṛtāni — nectar; gaura-abdhiḥ — the ocean known as Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; etaiḥ — by these; amunā — by the cloud known as Rāmānanda Rāya; vitīrṇaiḥ — distributed; tat-jñatva — of knowledge of devotional service; ratna-ālayatām — the quality of being an ocean containing valuable jewels; prayāti — achieved.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, who is known as Gaurāńga, is the ocean of all conclusive knowledge in devotional service. He empowered Śrī Rāmānanda Rāya, who may be likened to a cloud of devotional service. This cloud was filled with the water of all the conclusive purports of devotional service and was empowered by the ocean to spread this water over the sea of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Himself. Thus the ocean of Caitanya Mahāprabhu became filled with the jewels of the knowledge of pure devotional service.
