"update soon "
Vishnu incarnated the Avatar Parshurama in Treta-Yug to exterminate the Kshatriyas kings who went out of their way and had become a great burden for Bhoomidevi (Mother Earth) and her children. In treta yug, there was a Kshatriya king named Arjuna, who had a thousand arms. He had appeased Lord Dattatreya and had obtained blessings that had made him invinciblefc. But Arjuna misused his powers and became a ruthless tyrant.
Parashurama always carried an ax that he received from Lord Shiva after pleasing him with his meditation. Parshuram was a devotee of Shiva and received a Parshu (a weapon) from Lord Shiva as a blessing, for which he was given the name Parshram. Shiva also taught him war skills. When he was a boy, Parshuram was a good student and always obeyed his father Rishi Jamadgani. Parshurama was the first Brahmin warrior and is also called Brahmakshatriya (both Brahmin and Kshatriya means warrior). His mother, Renuka Devi, was the daughter of Kshatriya. And after receiving a Parshu from Lord Shiva, it has become impossible to beat anyone on earth.
Parshurama's parents were great spiritual winners that his Mother Renuka devi had ordered over the water elements and his father Jamadgani over the fire. It was even said that Renuka devi could look for water in a wet clay pot. Once Rishi Jamadgani asked Renuka Devi to look for water in the clay pot, somehow, Renuka Devi was distracted from the idea of being a woman and broke the clay pot. Seeing Renuka Devi get wet, the angry Jamadgani called his son Parshurama. He ordered Parshurama to cut off Renuka Devi's head. Parshuram obeyed his father. Rishi Jamadgani was so happy with his son that he asked for a blessing. Parshurama asked Rishi Jamadgani to recover the breath of his mother, therefore, Rishi Jamadgani, who was the owner of Divya Shakties (Divine Powers), gave life back to Renuka Devi.
Rishi Jamadgani and Renuka Devi were blessed not only for having Parshuram as their son, but they also received the Kamdhenu Cow. Once, Rishi Jamadgani left his Ashram and, meanwhile, some Kshatriyas (worrying) came to his Ashram. They were looking for food; the Ashmas Devies gave them food that they were so surprised to see the magic cow Kaamdhenu, that the cow would give her any dish she asked for. They were so entertained and expressed the purpose of buying the cow for their king Kartavirya Sahasrarjuna, but all the Ashram sahadus (sages) and Devies refused. They took the cow by force. Parshurama killed the entire army of King Kartavirya Sahasrarjun and restored the magic cow. In revenge, the son of Kartavirya Sahasrarjun killed Jamadgani. When ParshuRama returned to the ashram, he saw the body of his father. He noticed the 21 scars on Jamadgani's body and took the promise to kill all the unjust Kshatriyas 21 times on this earth. He killed all the king's sons.
Parshurama taught war skills to Bhishma Pitamha, Dronacharya and even Karana. (All these are characters of Mahabharata). Parshurama is Immortal, he even believes that he still lives on earth and will even teach war techniques to Kalaki, the tenth Avatar of Vishnu who has come to earth at the end of Kalyug.
Once, Parshurama went to see Lord Shiva in Kailasha. Lord Ganesha stood in his way, which his mother Parvati ordered him to prevent someone from coming and bothering them. Parshurama threatened Ganesha and asked him to fight with him if he wanted to prevent him from meeting Shiva. In this fight, Parshurama cut Ganesha and left Tusk. When the goddess Parvati saw this, she lost patience. The goddess took the form of Adhhi Shakti with anger that even Shiva could not please him. She said that Parshurama is not satisfied with Kastriya's blood that he wants to harm my son. Ganesha asked his mother to forgive Parshurama and he somehow managed to please his mother. Parshurama was so pleased with Ganesha that he gave him his parshu and blessed him.
