At the same time, when the sea churned, there was a lot of turmoil between the Asuras and the Devas. The Devas feared that they could not defeat the Asuras in terms of strength. When no way could be found then Lord Vishnu took the form of Mohini and trapped the Asuras in his fascination. As a result, the Asuras gave all the Amruth to the gods and the gods became immortal.
As per another legendary story, there was a city of Bhadravati during ancient times. The wealthiest person of this city had five sons, out of which one son Dhrushtbuddhi, the youngest of all brothers, was very wicked and indulged in evil deeds. When his evil deeds became excessive, the father drove him out of the house. After being thrown out of the house he became very sad and wanted to redeem himself for his Evil deeds. In order to do penance, he wandered here and there. Once he found a Sage name the Kautilya who suggested him to observe the Mohini fast as a remedy for his repentance. When Dhrushtbuddhi kept this fast with true devotion and dedication, all his sense came to an end and he took the form of a divine God.
