The Assassination of Parashuram
- The Assassination of Parashuram
According to the Vedic tradition, Parashuram killed the Kshatriyas
for 21 times and made the earth kshatriyaless. This story is proudly
told by Bramhins and sadly by Bahujans. Unfortunately, even if the
Bahujans hate the Bramhins, they always rely on the stories written
in Vedic tradition. They never try to check out what Jain and
Buddhist tradition say.
Here is a story of Chakravarti Subhoum available in some ancient
books. Read this and you will find it interesting and prideful:
Renuka was wife of Jamdagni. Her sister Tara was wife of the King
Sahsrarjun. Renuka was young but Jamdagni was old. Once Renuka went
to meet her sister Tara and was attracted towards Shasrarjun, the
husband of Tara. So she didn't come back to Jamdagni. Jamdagni went
to her and brought her back. He told his son Parashuram about her
affair with Sahasrarjun, and told him to kill her. Accordingly, he
killed her. When Sahasrarjun got the news, he went there, but
Parashuram was not there. Sahasrarjun killed Jamdagni and went back.
When Parashuram got the news, he went to the king and killed him. He
became the king and killed all the family members of Sahasrarjun,
failed to kill the queen Tara, who was succeeded to escape from
there. She was pregnant at that time and she began to live in an
Ashram of Shandilya Muni in the jungle. After some months she gave
birth to a child. She kept his name `Subhoum'.
When Subhoum became young, he was trained in various subjects and
arts by the Shandilya muni. Eventully he was informed that his
Sahasrarjun was killed by Parashuram. Subhoum became angry, formed
army of the guys in the jungle and attacked the capital. He killed
Parashuram. Then he started to kill Bramhins and made the earth
Bramhinless. He did this for 21 times. Thus he took revenge of
killings of the Kshatriyas.
(Story from Trishasti Shalaka Purush)
There are many such stories against vedic Bramins in Jain and
Buddhist literature. Bramins know it but Bahujans do not. Bramhins
will never tell such stories to Bahujans. So bahujans should not
on Baramins, but should study themselves.
