PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

The pang of passion that had arisen in her heart was brief and momentary, but the sense of guil would not Ieave her. As she returned to her ashram. Jamadagni knew through his tapobala what had happened and decided to destroy the sinful soul. His sons had gone away for collecting food and fire-wood. As they came back he ordered each of them to kill Renuka. First came Rumanvat, then Sushena, then Vasu and then Vishvavasu, but all four flatly refused to obey their father’s crazy order. Soon the youngest one returned. lie was of as ferocious a temperament as his father and no sooner had Jamadagni uttered his command than Bhargavrama beheaded the unfortunate lady. The father was greatly pleased with the obedient nature of his son and offered whatever boon Parashurama wanted. He promptly asked for rejuvenation of his dear mother. Renuka was brought back to life.
