Parashurama was the son of King Prasenjit's daughter Renuka and Bhriguvanshi Jamadagni. He was an avatar of Vishnu and an ardent devotee of Shiva. He received a divine Parshu from Shiva. His name was Rama, but he was called Parashurama due to his always holding the powerful Parshu provided by Shankar. Parashurama was the sixth avatar of the ten avatar of Lord Vishnu, which is counted between Vamana and Ramachandra. He is also known as Jamadagnya, being the son of Jamadagni. Parashurama was born in the dynasty of Maharishi Bhrigu, which is why he also has a name Bhargava. He was born on Akshaya Tritiya (Vaisakh Shukla Tritiya). Hence, it is a custom to fast and celebrate on this day. According to the story, he destroyed the Kshatriyas many times. He was born to liberate the world from the egoistic repression of the Kshatriyas…
It is not possible to describe the glory of Lord Parshuram, the armed and the scholar, who is received greeting and respected by Maryada Purushottam Shrirama. He was a master of Yoga, Veda and Niti(morality,ethics), was also proficient in the operation of various divinas weapon including Brahmastra and also in tantra-karma ,that is, the master of all disciplines of life and spirituality.
Parashurama, the sixth avatar of Vishnu, meditated on Pashupati and became a Parshu Dhari and used the weapon to suppress the evil forces. Some people say that Parashuram always opposed the particular caste, but this is not a logical truth.The fact is that Parshuram, skilled in both destruction and construction, was not to oppose any caste but anti in weicked chracter.
Parashurama took up arms to restore the honor of the sages. His purpose was not to destroy the caste. If that were the case,he would not only have completely destroyed the Haihaya dynasty but can also many thing. He paid proper respect to the kings like Janaka, Dasharatha etc.
In Sita Swayamvar, after knowing the reality of Shri Ram,he greeted Prabhu Rama.And also Parasurama did not hesitate to support Krishna in the Kaurava-Sabha. He cursed Karna because Kuntiputra belonged to a specific caste that is no true reason. But in reallity he cursed Karna for forgetting all knowledge as a punishment for telling lies .
Parshuram, who had deep affection for Kausalya's son Rama and Devakinandan Krishna, not only trained Gangaputra Devavrata (Bhishma Pitamah) in war's skill, but also blessed him saying that no any Guru in the world would ever receive such a disciple again!
According to mythological belief, Treta Yuga started on Akshaya Tritiya. On the same day, i.e., on the date of Vaishakh Shukla Tritiya Parshurama was born in Pradoshkal's at the house of sage Jamadagni and Mata Renuka who lived on the banks of river Saraswati. Parashurama's anger is discussed repeatedly, but the reasons for the his anger has been little discussed.
* & ** The story of the above two will be told in detail after some paragraph below.
*** Pashupati devotee Parashurama also expressed anger over Shrirama because the Lord Rama broke the Shiva bow.There is a reference in the Balkand of Valmiki Ramayana that Lord Parashurama told Sri Rama to strech the string of the Vaishnava bow. When he succeeded in this, Parashurama also understood that Lord Vishnu was taking Sri Rama's form.
After the marriage of the four sons, King Dasharatha left Mithila for Ayodhya Puri with his huge army and sons. On the way, the extremely enraged Mahatma Parashuram was meet. He told Rama that he had heard his mighty saga, but Rama should show him to raised the bow of his hand.
Dasharatha could not calm Parashurama even after many attempts. Parashurama stated that ‘Vishwakarma had created two bows of very superior quality. One of them was offered by the gods to Shiva and the other to Vishnu. Once Gods asked who is strong between Shiva and Vishnu, who is weak, Brahma created differences.
As a result, the bow of Shiva had fallen loosely in front of the bow of Vishnu, so the real test of might can be done with this bow. When calm, Shiva gave his bow to the Videha descendant Devrat and Vishnu gave his bow to Bhriguvanshi Ritchik as a heritage, which is safe with me. '
Rama got angry and took bow - arrow from his hand & applied and said, 'Vishnubana cannot go in vain. Now where to use it. ”Parashurama's force immediately disappeared. According to his statement, Rama used arrow on many worlds, won from Parashuram's Tapobal, which were destroyed. Parashurama said, "O Rama, you are certainly Vishnu." After this Parashurama left for Mahendra Parvat. Rama moved towards Ayodhya.
In Ramavatar, he came in anger when Ram Chandra broke the bow of Shiva. He gave his bow to Ramachandra for test. When Rama raised the bow and strech the bow's string, Parashuram understood that Ramchandra is avatar of Vishnu. Therefore, after praising him, he went to do penance.
*** After his mastery in the field of war skills, Shivji challenged him to battle for the purpose of taking Parashurama's test. During the war that lasted for several days, Parshuram attacked Shiva's head with a rash while defend the trident. Proud of the war skills of the disciple, Guru Shankar embraced Parashurama. After this, a name Khandparashu was also added in the eternal names of Shiva.
***** Ganapati had to face the anger of Parashurama as well. Mangalamurthy had stopped Parashurama from seeing Shiva, the angry Parashurama attacked him, which destroyed one of Ganesha's teeth and after that Ganesha got another name Ekadanta.Like Ashwatthama, Hanuman and Vibhishana, it is also considered in relation to Parashurama that he is cheeranjeevi.
Lord Parshuram is remembered for his obstinate nature, anger and raising his voice against injustice. Lord Parashuram is a real example in front of us that anger can ruin a person, but if we can overcome our anger and other senses then we can also fall into the category of greatest people.
Lord Parshuram, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu, had his own rules for his life.
Lord Parshuram incarnated on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya. On this day any person can achieve the heights of success in his life by remembering and following his character.
Parashuram then asked boon with full intelligence. In which he asked for three boons - first, to give life to his mother again and mother to not remember the whole incident of death. Second, he asked for a boon to return the consciousness of his four ill-treated brothers. The third boon is sought for himself according to which he is not defeated by any enemy or in war and also he get a long life. In this way, with his intelligence, Parashuram also brought his mother alive, obeyed the father's order and also supported his brothers. Parashuram not only showed the greatness of his heart, but also made his father aware of mistake by asking for a revival of his mother and his four brothers in a boon from the father. We all remember Shri Ram for his one patnivrata dharma but Parashurama kept this tradition long before him.
