  BHAGAWAN PARASURAM OF PHEDE

HIS ROLE AS GURU

Being versatile and indomitable by nature, he started Gurukulam deeming the profession best and began teaching astra vidya. Soon celebrated disciples came out with unprecedented skill in war. The redoubtable Bhishma Pitamaha and prestigious acharya Drona, and the star crossed Maharathi Karna were only a few who received his training. Here too, his uniqueness was exhibited when Karna concealed his caste, and he cursed him badly. 

HIS CONQUESTS AND SACRIFICE

In the mean while, of course, after centuries of his taking up the role of preceptor, there came a challenge from an arrogant king that Parasuram was a hollow boaster and unable to conquer the kshatrias, and frightened by their numerical strength, he took to teaching. This provocation was too much to bear and his warlike temper woke up and once again he under took his conquest of kshatrias. None survived, when confronted many hid themselves in antahpuras. The kings of Anga, Kalinga, Malawa, Videha, Kashmir, Kunti, Sabhi fell at his feet resulting in the Urvitala-face of the earth becoming nirvirya - without fighter. As he got, he gifted away all. At the request of his Pitrudevatas coming from heaven, he retired from further contest. He then performed a great sacrifice with the famous Kashyapa as the chief priest, and at the end he gave away the conquered Bharat as 'dan', saying that he would go to Mahendra mountain for taking up his ascetic life. He excelled the unexcelled excellences in everything.
