Young, handsome Bilwamangal and prostitute Chintamani lived on the opposite banks of the same river. Bilwamangal was in love with Chintamani. On the evening of his father's funeral ceremony Bilwamangal wanted to meet Chintamani but it was a stormy evening. The sky was covered with black cloud. Bilwamangal found no boat to cross the river, so when Bilwamangal reached Chintamani's house the door was closed. He found a rope hanging from the roof he climbed up and entered Chintamani's room. Seeing Bilwamangal Chintamani enquired who he has come in that foul weather. Bilwamangal said that he had crossed the river holding a log and climbed the wall with the help of the rope. But it was found that what he thought a rope was actually a big snake and the log was actually a dead body floating in the river. Chintamani was so overwhelmed by Chintamani's love for her she told him why not offer this love to almighty god. Bilwamangal was so moved by those words of Chintamani and started worshipping lord Krishna. One day Bilwamangal saw a lady in the way who was a wife of a business man. He took shelter in that business man's house. He was attracted by the beauty of that woman. In the night he requested for company for the woman to the husband. The husband was god-fearing person so he sent his wife to Bilwamangal that night. While enjoying the time in the company of that woman he realised that what he was doing was wrong and his eyes were the main culprit. He instantly blinded his eyes by the hair clip of that woman. Now he could see the way to Brindaban through his inner eyes. Lord Krishna in disguise of a cow had showed him the way to Brindaban.
