  BHAGAWAN PARASURAM OF PHEDE

HIS ROLE AS WARRIOR

During this period, another facet came to light; it was the most dreadful and also fulfilled the purpose of his incarnation. There lived in the Narmada valley a king by name Kartavirya belonging to Haihaya dynasty, famous as Sahasrarjuna. Being blessed by Dattratreya with thousand arms, he embarked upon digvijayayatra and conquered many king. He did not limit his greed with the conquest of kshatrias, but stretched it further and proved a veritable yama to rishis by destroying hermitages and the like, for his mere sadistic delight. When Vasistha's asram was razed, Vasistha cursed that soon his thousand arms would be cut off. He challenged the sea, as all the kings were subdued by then. But the sea politely withdrew saying that he would find soon a match in war. It was at this juncture Kartavirya's sons bloated with the pride of father's conquests, seized by force the Kamadhenu from Jamadagni's asram. Parasuram asserted and entered into the warfield. Kartavirya though displayed his extraordinary powers, self-acquired and god-given he could not stand against Parasurama's invincible powers. He bit the dust and returned the Kamadhenu.
