Parashurama Jayanti 2017 : Here is why Lord Parashurama is considered as 6th Incarnation of Lord Vishnu!

April 28, 2017: India celebrates the birth anniversary of Parashurama every year as it is believed that he is the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. This year, in 2017, it falls on April 28th and it is celebrated with great zeal and fervor, especially in Western India.

According to Hindu Calendar, it falls during Shukla Paksha Tritiya in the month of Vaishakha. Legend has it that Parashurama was born during Pradosh Kala and hence the day when Tritiya prevails during Pradosh Kala is considered for Parashurama Jayanti celebrations.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

It is believed that the reason behind the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu is to free the Earth’s burden by destroying the sinful, destructive as well as irreligious monarchs that pillaged its resources and neglected their duties as kings.

Unlike all other avatars, Parashurama still lives on the Earth, say Hindu believers. Therefore, due to the human form, he is not worshipped like Lord Rama and Krishna.

In Southern India, a famous temple exists which commemorates Parashurama and is located at the holy place Pajaka near Udupi. Apart from that, there are numerous temples at the western coast of India which are dedicated to Lord Parashurama.

In Hindu text, Kalki Purana, it is mentioned that Parashurama will be the martial guru of Shri Kalki, the 10th and final Avatar of Lord Vishnu. It is not the first time that 6th Avatar of Lord Vishnu will meet another Avatar. According to another Hindu holy text Ramayana, Parashurama came to the betrothal ceremony of Sita and Lord Rama and met the 7th Avatar of Lord Vishnu.
