The female form of Mahavisnu. Devas and Asuras quarrelled with each other over the right of partaking the Amrta (nectar) obtained from the sea of Milk.
At that time Mahavisnu appeared before them in the guise of a beautiful maiden of maddening charm and the asuras were guilefully made to turn their attention on her for some time during which time the nectar was carried away by the Devas.
The female form of Mahavisu was called Mohini.
Siva fell in love with #Mohini and by their union of the two was born Sasta.
