Shankar Mahadev Dev
Bhasmasura was a giant demon, but was extremely foolish. He would never think before acting. One day, he decided to meditate and pray to get a boon from Lord Shiva. He meditated for several days. After several days of meditation and offerings, Lord Shiva decided to appear before him. Lord Shiva said, “I am thoroughly pleased with your love and devotion. Ask one thing that you want as a boon”. Bhasmasura replied, “My Lord, grant me the boon that whoever I put my hand on would die instantly”. Lord Shiva granted him the boon. Then Bhasmasura got up and said, “How would I know whether the boon is true or not”. Bhasmura then went near Lord Shiva to place his hand. It alerted Lord Shiva, and he ran off. But Bhasmasura continued following him. Just then, Lord Vishnu appeared disguised as Mohini. Mohini was so exceedingly beautiful that Bhasmasura immediately fell in love with Mohini. Bhasmasura asked her to marry him. She told him that she was very fond of dancing, and would marry him only if he could match her moves identically. Bhasmasura agreed to the match and hence they started dancing. While still dancing, Mohini struck a pose where her hand was placed on top of her own head. As Bhasmasura imitated her, he was tricked into touching his own head, and hence Bhasmasura immediately burnt up and turned into ashes, due to the power he had recently gained.
