Krishna

An incarnation of Vishnu, the popular deity Krishna also took the form of Mohini in order to marry Aravan to satisfy one of the hero’s last requests, according to the Mahabharata. After Aravan’s passing, Krishna stayed in the form as the hero’s widow for a significant period of mourning. Krishna is well known for his mischievous games with his Gopikas (girl friends) taking away their dressing while they bath in pond and cross dressing for play.

Mohini

Vishnu, the Hindu God is clearly depicted in the faith as gender-fluid. This major

Hindu deity frequently took on the female avatar of Mohini. Vishnu even procreated with Shiva in the Mohini form, resulting in the birth of Ayyappa, a major figure still

worshipped by millions who make pilgrimages to shrines in India. The avatar Mohini frequently gets describes as an enchantress who maddens lovers.

Mitra-Varuna

In Vedic literature, Mitra and Varuna are two dieties (Devas) who are portrayed as icons of intimate friendship between males. Mitra-Varuna are referred to in the ancient Indian scripture of the Rigveda.They are both considered Ādityas, or deities connected with the Sun; and they are protectors who preside over the universal waters. They are depicted riding a shark or crocodile together. Sometimes they are portrayed seated side-by-side on a golden chariot drawn by seven swans. In Hindu mythology, Mitra and Varuna are sometimes regarded as twins or as an androgynous entity. Whilst Varuna is seen as the monarchy (the subconscious mind that reigns over the domain of the body), Mitra is the priesthood (enlightened men) and is responsible for balancing day and night, good and evil. Mitra is responsible for restoring balance. Mitra and Varuna are the two half-moons: the waxing one is Varuna and the waning one is Mitra. During the new-moon night these two meet and when they are thus together, everyone is pleased.

Shiva and Mohini

Vishnu, the male God many times takes the form of a beautiful Mohini to trick the Asuras and save Devas. Shiva was once so smitten by Mohini beauty that he was so madly in love with her. After some hide and seek play they unite in love and God Ayyappa was born.
