I have thus given a synopsis of the madhya-lila. Now please hear the pastimes the Lord performed during the last twelve years.
Thus Srila Kaviraja Gosvami, strictly following in the footsteps of Sri Vyasadeva, gives a synopsis of the lilas of Caitanya-caritamrta. He has given such a description at the end of each canto. In the Adi-lila he outlined the pastimes of the Lord in the five stages of boyhood, leaving the details of the description to Srila Vrndavana dasa Thakura. Now in this chapter the pastimes that took place at the end of the Lord's life are summarized. These are described in the Madhya-lila and Antya-lila. The rest of the pastimes have been described in a synopsis in the Second Chapter of the Madhya-lila. In this way the author has gradually described both the madhya-lila and the antya-lila.
