PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

His name was Brahmendra Swami. Although this Swami was no soldier himself, he had disciples who could very well stand comparison with the ancient Dronas and Karnas in bravery and skill, Hence unlike the god he worshipped, it was indirectly, through his disciples, that Brahmendra Swami launched and won the struggle. One more point of comparison may also be stressed. In spite of repeated victories Parashurama deemed it wise to leave the uneasy land and settle somewhere else. The Swami like him, in the later years of his life thought it better to leave this bard won kshetra and stay elsewhere-in this case at Dhavadshi, a small village near Satara. This is a story of Moslem persecution and a strong Hindu counteraction.

This Brahmendra Swami was a Sanyasin who had spent a great deal of his early years in meditation and pilgrimage. He belonged to Rajuri and as such his devotion was as a matter of course directed towards Ganesh. Later on while on one of his wandering missions he happened to cross the jungles near Pedhe.
