TRANSLATION

O brāhmaṇa, do you remember what happened to us while we were living with our spiritual master? Once our guru's wife sent us to fetch firewood, and after we entered the vast forest, O twice-born one, an unseasonal storm arose, with fierce wind and rain and harsh thunder.


PURPORT

Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī explains that this storm arose during winter and was therefore unseasonal.
