Due to the influence of Havishya, despite being a Brahmin son, he became Kshatrakarma. He is an ardent devotee of Lord Shankar. Lord Shankar Ji gave Parashurama an unfathomable weapon. His real name was Rama, but he became famous by the name of Parashurama, due to wearing a ransom in his hand. He was an ardent devotee of his father, he had beheaded his mother on the orders of the father, but again with the blessings of the father, the mother's position remained unchanged.

Parshuram's pilgrimage

There was a Kamadhenu Gau in the ashram of his father Sreejamdagni, seeing Kartaviryaarjuna whose supernatural majestic power, Kartaviryaarjuna started to persecute him to obtain it. Finally he used force to acquire Gau and brought him to Mahishmati. But when Parashuram ji came to know  this, he destroyed Kartavirya Rajun and all his army. On which Father Sreejamadagni, describing the killing of this Chakravarti Emperor of Parasurama ji, like killing a Brahmin, ordered him to take a pilgrimage. He went on a pilgrimage, and the parents blessed him when he returned.

Had donated the entire earth

On the other hand, with the killing of Sahastrajun, the fire of vengeance was burning in the hearts of his sons. One day, taking the opportunity, he came to the ashram in disguise and cut off the head of Jamadagni and escaped with him. When Parshuram ji came to know this news, he got furious in anger and vowed to make the earth inferior to the Kshatriyas and wandered the earth for 21 times and made the earth free. Then joined the father's head with his torso and performed the funeral rites in Kurukshetra.

Parshuram Jayanti Katha: Story of Parshuram Jayanti 

Story of Parashuram Jayanti According to the Hindu calendar, on the third day (Tritiya) during Shukla Paksha, Parashuram Jayanti is the month of Vaishakh which falls in the month of April or sometime in May. According to the scriptures and Hindu mythology, there are two episodes related to the birth of Lord Parashurama.

According to Harivamsa Purana, Kartavirya was a king named Arjuna who ruled over Mahishmati Nagari. King Kartavirya and many of his other Kshatriya king friends were involved in destructive actions and used to persecute the weak without any reason.

Their incest and atrocities made it difficult for other creatures to live. At this, Mother Earth sought help from Lord Vishnu to protect the earth and living beings from the cruelty of Kshatriyas. To help Mother Earth, Lord Vishnu incarnated as Parashurama as the son of Goddess Renuka and sage Jamadagni. Lord Parshuram killed Kartavirya Arjuna and all the untouchable Kshatriya kings with his ax and freed Mother Earth from their violence and cruelty.
