NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 29 - MOHINI AVATHARAM

Dasakam - 29 - Mohini Avatharam




Lord appeared in Dhanvantri form, carrying pot of nectar in his two hands from the Milky Ocean. Asuras snatched the pot rendering devas helpless. Lord consoled them and disappeared. Prompted by Maaya, asuras started to fight amongst themselves on distribution of nectar between themselves. 

Devas and other divine Gods, pleaded Lord to interfere and help them get the divine nectar. Lord took a form of beautiful young maiden, Mohini. On seeing her, Asuras stopped their quarrel and got attracted to her instantaneously. They even gave the responsibility of apportioning the nectar to her.

Mohini made asuras and devas sit in two separate rows and while keeping asuras attracted to her charming personality, she distributed the entire nectar to the Devas, who are Lord's devotees. Lord took original form and beheaded Raahu, an asura who sat cunningly along with devas and had half of the nectar.

Lord disappeared after punishing the asuras for snatching the pot of nectar from his hands. Angry with the cheating, Asuras battled fiercely with devas making them almost swoon by their mightiness and magic. Lord reappeared and killed Kaalnemi, Maali and other Asuras while Indra killed Bali, Jaambvaan, Vaali and Paakaasura. Naamuchi who could not be killed by either dry or wet weapons was cut off by a weapon made of foam. The fight was stopped following Sage Narada's advice.

Lord Shiva heard about the appearance of Lord Vishnu in form of Mohini. He became eager to see and went to Lord's abode along with Goddess Uma and Bhoothaganaas. Lord appeared in Mohini form with beautiful eyes at one corner of a garden, Although Lord Shiva was a conqueror of Kaamadeva, still he could not resist his desire to embrace the Lord. 

Lord Shiva followed Mohini for some time, then he obtained the knowledge of the Brahmam and sang the glory of Lord. Lord honoured Shiva, who then narrated Lord's greatness to Goddess Uma. Bhattathiri totally awestruck at Lord's glory, requests that he be protected.
