Haridas Thakur was preaching to the people in the prison that you are very fortunate because here you can realise that in the material world we are all prisoners. this is durga. durga .. dur means difficult and ga means prison. this is a difficult prison to get out of . so now knowing that you are actually prisoner better to chant Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. in this way you can actually achieve your real liberation from material bondage. in this way you can actually achieve the highest perfection of life . so in this way induced all the prisoners to chant the Hare Krishna and the whole prison house was chanting.
