Know about Parshuraama Jayanti

Parshuraama is the sixth avatar of Lord Vishu as described by Hindu scholars. This year Parshuraama Jayanti falls on the 8th May

By Yogesh Raikar

Parshuraama (or, Parshuram or Parshurama) Jayanti is celebrated as the birthday of the sixth avatar (incarnation) of Lord Vishnu, who himself holds the status of being one of the Three Supreme Powers, according to the Hindu Purana (puraan). Parshuraama, the sixth of all the ten incarnations (nine at present) was believed to be born on the Pradosh kala in shukla paksha,and thus, when the Tritiya prevails on this day, is celebrated as the Parshuraama Jayanti. According to the Hindu mythology, Parshuraama is believed to be still living on earth as a form of energy, that energy which destroys the bad and sinful sources.

As the Hindu Purana states, Parshuraama is called Chiranjeevi (one who is immortal) and thus continues to live even after his mortal years. Parshuraama was the disciple of Lord Shiva, who presented him with the famous axe that Parshuraama is always depicted of using during his martial combats. Parshuraama holds a special worship status in the Hinduism because he is believed to be returning as the martial instructor for the final incarnation of Lord Vishu i.e Lord Kalki.
