Some people are celebrating Parshuram Jayanti on April 25 but others will celebrate the birth of Lord Parshuram on April 26. Since Lord Parshuram was born on the Shukla Tritiya in Vaishakh month, Akshaya Tritiya is celebrated at Parshuram Jayanti. Also, it is believed that Lord Parshuram took birth in PradoshKaal. His mother was Renuka.
But some people will celebrate the Parshuram Jayanti and Akshaya Tritiya on April 26 due to a difference in Parshuram Jayanti Panchag. People are asked to celebrate birth of Lord Parshuram at their homes due to lockdown.
Worship Lord Parshuram
Start early with taking bath. Clean the temple including the idol of Lord Parshuram or his picture. Offer flowers and water while chanting prayers of the Lord Parshuram. He is believed to be one of the incarnations of Vishnu that are physically present like Hanumanji and Ashwatthama. He is also called the God of Justice.
Relation with Shriram and Shri Krishna
In Tretayug, when Lord Rama broke the “shiv-dhanush”, Parshuram was worshipping on Mahendraparvat. And as soon as he heard the sound of breaking of “shiv-dhanush”, he got angry and went to that place where Shriram broke the bow. But later he bowed down to Shriram.
Shriram gave his Sudarshan Chakra and said asked him to return the chakra in Dwapar Yoga when Lord Vishnu was incarnated as Lord Shri Krishna. Parshuramji kept the Sudharshan Chakra with him until he met Shri Krishna in Dwapar and gave the chakra back to Lord Vishnu.
