Bhaargava-The axe warrior by molee Bhaargava-The axe warrior by molee
Parashurama

Parashurama was the most fearsome warrior in Indian mythology..
His name was originally Rama but his weilding of the parashu(axe) gave him the famous name Parashurama-the Rama who wields an axe.
He has been referred to by many names throughout the myths such as Bhaargava,Bhrigupati and Jamadagnia.
Rama was born to the highly respected sage Jamadagni and mother Renuka
He was the fourth and last amongst the sons of Jamadagni.Amongst his brothers Rama was the strongest and even though born in a family of brahmins(sages/priests) he possessed qualities which were more like that of a kshatriya(warrior).
Rama was known to be a great devotee of the God of Destruction-Rudra (Shiva).
For his intense devotion and penance, Rudra personally trained Rama in the art of war, he taught him how to handle various astras(powers) and his was Rudra who gave Rama his almighty axe!

Rama's father Jamadagni possessed a unique calf which would grant anything its master wishes for.when this news was given to the princes belong to the Haihaya kingdom which was ruled by the king Sahasrarjuna, they decided to abduct the divine calf.
the princes invaded the hermitage of the sage and took away the calf forcibly when Rama wasn't around..
When Rama got to know about this incident,he decide to fight and take back what belongs to him.Rama had to fight and kill the undefeated warrior king Sahasrarjuna who was protecting his sons from Rama.
Soon the sons of Sahasrarjuna took revenge on Rama by killing his father Jamadagni and destroying his family when he had gone out for work.
When Rama arrived to his hermitage he saw his mother weeping over his father’s dead,beheaded body and he saw his brothers lay dead..
Rama swore revenge against the tyranny of kshatriyas and vowed to rid this world of the corrupt and the evil.
He went around the world with his battle axe 21 times and killed every criminal,every tyrant and every single corrupt kshatriya in billions!
From what Sage Narada says in Mahabharata.. Rama-the son of Jamdagni was responsible to rid this world of evil and bring in the Satya yuga… for this reason I wonder if he was the Kalki of the previous kali-yuga.

Parshurama was part of Treta-Yuga

He predated Rama.

Kali-Yuga (named after the Demon Kali, not the Goddess Kali) is still ongoing

That's an interesting idea about a previous Kalki Avatar... It's true the numbers don't add up. An Avatar will come at the end of every age to set the tone for next age. With four ages and 10 avatar (or 24 avatars), it either means that some avatars don't change ages, they are for maintenance and upkeep, while only a couple of them change the age.... or it means there's been several Kalki's in the past!

Anyways thanks for your art and your dedication to mythology. Awesome painting!

Each Cycle has a Kalki

But Parshurama was part of Treta-Yuga, not Kali-Yuga

that's the common misconception of him being born in treta yug.. because naradha says in the mahabharata that it was parashurama who brought the satya yuga.
i knw he is the destined guru of kalki..
n thnx.

Since Parshurama was there before 26th Mahayuga it makes sense that he brought the Satya Yuga of 28th or present Mahayuga. :-)

Hindu Units of Time clearly shows the modern concept of Time Dilation.  Rate of flow time at different Lokas differs.  Eg:  1 year is Indra Loka is equivalent to 365 years on earth or something.  Story of Kakudmi and Muchukunda shows time dilation clearly.

Ramayana took place in the Treta Yuga of 26th Mahayuga and Mahabharata took place in the Dwapara Yuga of 28th Mahayuga of 7th Manavantara of Varaha Kalpa.  At the beginning of each Manavantara a new pantheon becomes demigods.  Our present Indra is called Purandara/Sakra.  Next Indra is Maharaj Bali (Mahabali). :-)

I think he marked the end of Saty-Yuga and the beginning of Treta-Yuga

Also we know he was in Treta-Yuga, because after Rama broke Shiva's bow Parshurama came and confronted him and accepted that his time as the primary avatar of Vishnu was over ceding to Rama

He's the only badass of Vishnu's Avatars that I love the hell out of, Parashurama is like Hindu version of Kratos from God of War also he could probably be more badass than Kali maybe! :headbang:
