Shri Radhe Maa - The saint who was guided by a prostitute
A Brahmin, Sri Bilvamangala Thakura, was so attached to a prostitute named Cintamani that after performing Shraddha for his deceased father he crossed a turbulent river storm on a stormy night on a corpse. He found the gate locked and in the darkness he grabbed a cobras tail mistaking it for a rope. Chinamani said that she was a mere bag of flesh and bones. Had he sought Lord Govinda of Vrindavana with such fervor, he would have gained supreme happiness.
Shocked by the words of the prostitute, Bilvamangala Thakur set out for Vrindavana but found himself attracted to a Brahmin’s wife on the way. Angry with himself, Bilvamangal Thakur blinded himself and vowed to overcome lust through surrender to Shrimati Radha Rani and Lord Shri Krishna. After several years under his guru and the grace of his guru, Bilvamangal Thakur became a perfect soul.
Bilvamangala Thakura’s work Krishna-Karnamrita continues to guide, illustrate and inspire bhakti in all worshippers of the lord.
May Shrimati Radharani grant us the service of the feet of the Lord of Bilvamangal Thakur, Shri Krishna!
