RYALI

And it was about to end in blood shed. To averting the catastrophe, Lord Mahavishnu assumed the form of Jaganmohini an enchanting form that mesmerises the on-lookers at its first sight itself, and convinced the contesting parties that she would distribute it equally. Captivated by her magnetic exterior, and honied words from the interior, danavas riveting their eyes on her at once accepted. Jahanmohini with her unusual dazzling exterior and graceful movements aided and abetted by her side-long love-lore glances manoeurved to pour amrit into the cupped hands of devas only, while the danavas were satisfied in drinking in her ethereal charm with their wide open eyes. When the glitter of intoxication wore off, they started futile wars that landed them in a series of defeats and shameful destruction. That is against such awe-some back -ground the present incident took its origin. Accidentally Lord Siva was acquainted with the unexceptional charms of Jaganmohini by Narada once. Anon Lord Siva was on his toes and proceeded straight towards Vaikunta to seeing for himself that enchanting beauty from the self-same Lord. He met Sri Mahavishnu and expressed his intention. Smiling at its oddity, He assured him of its reappearance shortly. Satisfied, Siva was returning to Kailas with his retinue, when an extraordinary sight gleamed into his sight - a tantalising beauty absorbed in sports. The asadrisa lavanya of that Sundari enkindled love in him. He stared and stared and stared, why gaped and gazed at her ad infinitum.
