PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

Everybody wondered whether the old warrior had appeared to take up the old cudgels against the Kshatriyas or whether be had any grievance against Dasharath or any of his sons. But nobody wasted time in fruitless speculation. Vasishtha and the other priests and sages hurried to welcome  Parashurama and offered him the traditional puja. He accepted the welcome but setting aside Dasharath, addressed himself to Ramachandra. Since the latter had performed a deed impossible for any ordinary soul, had made ready and broken the bow that was with King Janaka, Parashurama had brought another bow, which he should now try to use. If he was successful in doing so, he was to face a duel with Parashurama and he could assure Rama that the duel would be worthy of Rama’s prowess ! The old King, Dasharath, was naturally disturbed at this offer and tried to talk Parashurama out of his plan. But no, Rama had to put the string on the bow, which was prepared for and used by Vishnu himself.
