2. When the rain stops, that is the nidhana. If a person performs the fivefold Sāma worship, keeping all this in mind, clouds favour him with rain as he likes when the rain is due, and they may do him this favour even when rain is not due.
Udgṛhṇāti tat nidhanam, the end of the rainfall is the nidhana [literally, ‘the end’]; varṣati, it pours; ha asmai, for him [i.e., for the worshipper]; varṣayati, he causes rain to fall; ha yaḥ etat evam vidvān, he who, knowing all this as such; vṛṣṭau, in the rain; pañcavidham sāma upāste, performs the fivefold Sāma worship. Iti tṛtīyaḥ khaṇḍaḥ, here ends the third section.
