The story of the journey of the ocean when the nectar was found in the ocean; causing a fight between the gods and the devils. Lord Vishnu in the shape of a beautiful woman started the distribution of the nectar beginning with the Devas (gods). One of the devils who could see what was happening forced Lord Vishnu to take out his wheel and cut off the head of the devil.
