Parashurama was born as the son of a Brahmin father Jamadagni and a Kshatriya mother, Renuka. “Parashu” means “Axe” in Sanskrit and the name Parashurama literally means “Rama with the axe”. He is called as Brahmakshatriya (warrior Brahman), the first warrior saint. Parashurama is also called by various names such as Bhrgupati, Bhargava, Bhargava Rama, and Jamadagnya. Lord Parasurama is also one of the seven Chiranjeevis according to Hinduism.It is believed that Lord Vishnu incarnated as Parashurama to make the earth free from the burden of cruel Kshatriya kings by defeating the evilness in them. According to Hindu beliefs, Parashurama still lives on earth, even today. Legends also has it that the state of Kerala was created by Lord Parasurama.
