PARASHURAMA

A Prayer Fulfilled

It was at this time that a great man, an incarnation of God, manifested himself on the earth. He achieved an adventurous, romantic and revolutionary desire. Because of his campaigns, injustice was done away with and justice established on earth.

This virile, powerful and towering person picked up an axe, went round the earth twenty-one times and killed the evil Kshatriya kings like felling trees in the forests, and thus brought solace to the people. The country again smiled with peace and prosperity. And it was as if a New World had been created.

That was Parashurama's creation.Because his weapon was 'Parashu' (axe), he was known as ‘Parashurama’. Our epics tell us that Parashurama is the sixth incarnation of Vishnu on this earth and one among the ageless, immortal beings, like Ashwatthama. Hindus believe this story and worship Parashurama as God.
