      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
      Jain
      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,
      but
      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
      father
      Sahasrarjun was killed by Parashuram. Subhoum became angry, formed
      an
      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.

      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
      rely
      on Baramins, but should study themselves.
