Mohini – The Unforgettable Affair Of Lord Shiva

Lord Shiva is said to be the epitome of true love. He is known for his dedication and selflessness towards Parvati. His tales of Goddess Sati and then the formation of the Shakti peeths is also known to all as the unique story of love.

Can you imagine him having an external affair? But, let me tell you that beauty has no boundation and can melt any being. Similarly, the God of the Gods also fell for the very beautiful ‘MOHINI’.

 

Mohini - The Unforgettable Affair Of Lord Shiva

 

Now, who this Mohini is and from where did she come?

You must have heard about Bhasmasura who had the boon of vanishing anybody whom he touched. It was getting impossible to defend him. He was so destructive that he also ran behind Lord Shiva and tried to destroy him. Hence Vishnu took the form of this beautiful lady Mohini and seduced Bhasmasura towards her. She made him indulge in a dance in such a way that he touched his own head and vanished. Every God started praising Lord Vishnu and the beauty of Mohini. This incident overwhelmed Lord Shiva so much that he immediately visited Vishnu along with his wife Parvati.He asked him to take the form of Mohini again. When Vishnu turned himself to a beautiful and seductive lady, Lord Shiva fell for her. What happened next was unexpected!

In this entire incident, the most astonishing or you can say the unforgettable part was that Goddess Parvati witnessed the happenings. She was ashamed for sure but not because of envy, rather because she had unconsciously drawn a boundary around her beloved.

What do we learn from this incident? A very nice takeaway from this short mythological story is here “Love cannot have boundaries. It is eternal, infinite and unconquerable.”

  1. Is this a joke?

    What do we learn from this incident? A very nice takeaway from this short mythological story is here “Love cannot have boundaries. It is eternal, infinite and unconquerable.”

    Are you promoting adultery?

    Is God okay with adulterers? Should women feel ashamed of unconsciously drawing REAL boundaries, that they should?

  2. This is ridiculous. When Tara cheated on Jupiter by having affair with moon, everyone called it an affair because it is a female who cheated. When a male cheated, all sorts of excuses are given.

  3. Maybe we shouldn’t jump to calling it adultery. Theres only one god/goddess. All the forms of god and godess are one true god. So therefore mohini and parvati are one and the same. I dont beleive parvati would be ashamed. I think if it says that she was ashamed that the author of the scripture was putting their own beliefs into the story. I refuse to believe that shiva would cheat on parvati. Its ungodly. Vishnu and shiva are one. Parvati I and mohini are one. They are all one. It’s not cheating its leela.
