According to Hindu scriptures, Mohini was an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. At the time of Samudra Manthan, when the nectar was churned, there was a lot of controversy about who would consume the nectar between the demons and the gods? The gods sought help from Lord Vishnu and thus he appeared in the form of a beautiful woman named Mohini to distract the demons from the pot of nectar. Thus, all the deities consumed the nectar with the help of Lord Vishnu. Hence, this day is celebrated as Mohini Ekadashi. This is the same fast which was kept by King Yudhishthira and Lord Rama.
