Meaning:
When you feel hungry and tired, the only way out of it is the chanting of "Harinaama." In the situation where you lose everything and get caught by adversity, you can be saved only by chanting "Harinaama" (the name of Hari). In dangers, sins, troubles, fears, one can feel secure only by rendering "Harinaama." If you surrender yourself to the Lord, he will save you and be with you in all your misfortunes.
