JAMBHA – An asura (demon)


jambha asura

Jambha was the leader of the asuras who snatched away the pot of amrita (nec­tar of immortality) from the sage Dhanvantari when he emerged carrying it dur­ing the churning of the Milky Ocean. Jambha, along with his demon cohorts, was tricked by the beautiful woman Mohini, the form taken by Vishnu to recover the nectar of immortality.
