Sixth Incarnation of Vishnu as Parashuram

Parashurama Bhargava or Parasurama (Axe-wielding Rama), according to Hindu mythology is the Sixth Avatara of Vishnu, belongs to the Treta yuga, and is the son of Jamadagni & Renuka. Parashu means axe, hence his name literally means Rama-with-the-axe. He received an axe after undertaking a terrible penance to please Shiva, from whom he learned the methods of warfare and other skills. He is a Chiranjeevin, who fought the advancing ocean back thus saving the lands of Konkan and Malabar (Maharashtra - Karnataka - Kerala coastline). The coastal area of Karnataka and Kerala state in India is known as Parashurama Kshetra (Parashurama's area). Some dispute this and say it extends all the way to Mumbai in Maharashtra.

Parashurama's creation was a mistake, as his mother was given a concoction made to produce a Kshatriya child. Parashurama was of mixed varna. Parashurama's maternal uncle was the mighty King and Brahmarishi Vishwamitra but was a brahmin on his father's side.
