Etymologically, Mohini refers to a feminine avatar of Lord Vishnu and Mohini Ekadashi is celebrated because Lord Vishnu appeared as Mohini or Nymph (Apsara) for the first time on this day and this Mohini avatar is considered to be the most charismatic and beautiful avatar of Lord Vishnu.

Mythological Story of  Mohini Ekadashi

According to the Hindu Scriptures, at the time of “Samudra Manthan” was formed an urn full of nectar was churned out of the ocean. Numerous demons started landing the ‘Amrit’ and taking it away from the gods in order to become immortal. Gradually the situation got worse enough that Lord Vishnu got worried about the spread of the devil and their negative energies in the world. 


He came up with an interesting way to distract the demons. He took a feminine form, Mohini, which was highly attractive and anyone who looked at her got distracted from all the other things.


Taking advantage, Lord Vishnu persuaded the deities and the demons to drink the ‘Amrit’ one by one from her hands. Foolish demons agreed and they gave the nectar urn to the Mohini form of Lord Vishnu. Soon after receiving the nectar urn, Lord Vishnu offers that nectar drink to deities first. 


Interestingly, one of the demons took the form of God and joined the queue to get ‘Amrit’. However, he was recognized by  God ‘Surya' and ‘Chandra’. At last Lord Vishnu took out his chakra and chopped the head of the demon from the body. As he already drank the ‘Amrit’, his body got divided into two but he survived. They, then, got the identity of ‘Rahu’ and ‘Ketu’.


This holy day is considered to remove all kinds of sorrows and sufferings and punish the evil in one or the other way to save mankind. Besides, celebrating Mohini Ekadashi is a way to honor the balance of power of both males and females. This auspicious day also encourages people to break gender stereotypes and take into account that every gender is equal.
