I.71. gagan ghata ghaharani, sadho

 

CLOUDS THICKEN in the sky! O, listen to the deep voice of their roaring;

The rain comes from the east with its monotonous murmur.

Take care of the fences and boundaries of your fields, lest the rains overflow them;

Prepare the soil of deliverance, and let the creepers of love and renunciation be soaked in this shower.

It is the prudent farmer who will bring his harvest home; he shall fill both his vessels, and feed both the wise men and the saints.
