PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

The Vedi or sacrificial altar was nine yards by nine and was constructed of solid gold. Kashyapa, the greatest and most learned sage of the time was the chief priest and to crown this stupendous affair, the 'dan’ or gift that Parashurama gave to his priest was nothing less than the overlordship of the world. He then made known his intention of going back to the Mahendra mountain to resume his ascetic life. But Kashyapa told him bluntly that his hot temperament was a constant source of danger to the peace of his land and therefore he should quit it-go anywhere outside the boundaries of ‘his’ kingdom! And Bhargavrama had to obey the command. He crossed the Narmada and ultimately reached the western coastal strip. Here, in a land which was of a rough nature, Parashurama established some of the earliest inhabitation. It was sometime during this period that the meeting between Bhargavrama and Dasharathi Rama, narrated earlier, took place.
