Samudra Manthan Story

The Gods and the Asuras were always locked in a battle and never accepted the existence of other. Once the Asura King Bali captured the three worlds and the Gods were driven out of heaven. Lord Vishnu advised the Gods to churn the ocean of milk. The asuras were also roped in and the churning process began.  The serpent which was used as the rope to churn the ocean started spewing poison which was consumed by Lord Shiva to save the world. 14 gems or precious entities were produced including Lord Laxmi and nectar which will make anyone immortal. Once again a fight started between the Gods and the Asuras. Lord Vishnu took the form of Mohini and the Asuras were bewitched by her beauty. The Gods quietly consumed the nectar and the Asuras were fooled.
