A synopsis of Prabhu's Lila life

Prabhu Jagadbandhu's Lila may be divided into two parts:

In the first part he distributes Harinam in various ways up to the 31st year of his life.

In the second part, he mainly enjoys himself (Haripurusha) and imparts power to protect the earth from destruction. In this part he was in 'Gambhira' for about 17 years (16 years and 8 months) approaching to the state of full 'Tanmayatva' (engrossment in tasting the holy sweetness of Harinam). After confinement in Gambhira he came out and remained for three years with further manifestations of his Lilas before being succumbed to 'Great Death' (Maha Mrityu - the ultimate physical extinction of an avatar).
