Suryadev was pleased with his worship and gave him a Syamantak Mani (a precious gem). This gem shone just like the sun and gave light. It had the power to give gold coins. One day Satraajit suspected that Lord Krishna might snatch the gem from him. Thinking so Satraajit gave the gem to his brother Prasen to wear it. By chance Prasen was killed and eaten up by a lion during hunting. Jaambvan , somehow got that gem.
Satraajit blamed Lord Krisna and said that He had killed his brother Prasen to get the gem. To show the reality and to get Himself free from this blame, Lord Krishna went to the cave of Jaambvaan and fought with him and got the gem from him and gave it to Satraajit. Satraajit came to know the reality and gave the gem to Lord Krishna. Thus Krishna's blemish washed away.
