In the Kurma Avatara, perumal assumes the form of tortoise? He also takes another form – what is it?
In Kurma Avatara, the lord also assumes the form of Mohini, the most beautiful woman. In Kurma avatara perumal assumes the form of tortoise to help the asuras and devas with the churning of the milk ocean to obtain Amrutha (divine nectar). Once the nectar is obtained, in order to help the devas consume it, he takes the form of Mohini, the most beautiful woman anyone has ever seen. Mohini was not only beautiful, but also calming to anyone who sees her. The Asuras were mesmerized by her and did as she told. Mohini dupes them and the nectar was successfully distributed to the Devas
