Lord Shiva became a handsome beggar seeking alms in this aspect. When the wives of the rishis saw Shiva they were maddened with love at his beautiful form. The sons of the rishis fell madly in love with Mohini, and the rishis were not unaffected either and both forgot their pride and began following the beautiful pair.
In time, both revealed their true form and taught a lesson to the rishis who had been consumed by pride.
May Lord Shiva Bhikshitana and Mata Mohini bless us with the desire for liberation from the cycles of life and death!
Har Har Mahadev! Jai bolo Chakra Nishan ki! Jai Vishnu Bhagwan ki!
