New Delhi: Parshuram is considered to be the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It is believed that just like other avatars of the Lord, Parshuram too was born to kill the evil. Aggression, warfare and valour define this incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who emphasized on equality and justice.
Bhàrgava rāma, Jamadagnya rāma and Rambhadra are his other names. He was born to Brahman sage Jamadagni and his Kshatriya wife Renuka on top of Janapav hills in today’s Indore, Madhya Pradesh. He worshipped Lord Shiva at the temple near the ashram where he stayed and prayed. It is named after his father Jamadagni Ashram.
Parshuram Jayanti is celebrated as the birth anniversary of the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It usually takes place during the Shukla Paksha Tritya in Vaisakha month. This year, it is falling on April 25. Therefore, to mark their reverence to Lord Parshuram, who is hailed as a warrior Brahmin, Twitterati shared breathtaking pictures and paid tribute.

If legends are anything to go by then Parshuram is still on earth as he is Chiranjeevi and stays in meditative retirement. There are several temples of Lord Parshuram, like the famous one in south India at Pajaka near Udupi.
