PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

On his return to the ashram Parashurama learnt of what had happened and went so mad with rage that he vowed to wipe out from the face of the earth the perpetrators of this ghastly crime-the kshatriyas. The body of Jama dagni bore the marks of twenty-one wounds and Parashurama declared that he would slay the kshatriyas so many times. His rage and grief increased as his mother Renuka passed away of the shock. Now he bad no attachments to this material world and he stepped out of the ashram with the grim determination to put into execution his avowed aim.

Brandishing his axe Parashurama entered the territories of the Haihaya king thus setting aflame another furious contest. The troops sent against him were destroyed by the young man single-handed. This brought the King himself on the field. A fierce duel ensued, that lasted for a very long time. Kartavirya was a man of no mean courage and skill and it was with great effort that Bhargavrama could overcome him.
