Parashurama Jayanti 2024

Parashurama Jayanti 2024

Parashurama is the sixth avataar of Sri Vishnu. Lord Parshuram is the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu. The legend of Parshuram goes back to the Treta Yuga. Parashu means axe and Rama is Lord Sri Rama in Sanskrit language. Literally the name means Rama-with-the-axe. Parshuram was born to Sage Jamadagni and Renuka.

Parashurama Jayanti is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Sri Parashurama. Parashurama Jayanti occurs in the month of vaishakha during Shukla Paksha Tritiya. Parashurama was born at Pradosh Kala and that is why Parashurama Jayanti is celebrated on the day when Tritiya prevails during Pradosh Kala in Vaishakha month. Parshuram Bhagwan got his name Parshuram because he used a Parshu (an axe) to kill all the Kshatriyas on earth. Parshuram means the bearer of an axe. Parashurama had taken avataar to wipe out the sinful, destructive and irreligious Kings that did not perform their duties so that Earth's burden can be lessened. People observe this day by taking a bath in holy rivers, visiting nearby Vishnu temples and performing puja. Parashurama Jayanti usually coincides with Akshaya Tritiya.
