Jamadagni was a great sage, one of the Saptarishi, or Seven Vedic Sages. He was a descendant of the sage Bhrigu, and his wife was Renuka. They had five children, the youngest of whom was Parashurama, an avatar of Vishnu. One day, Jamadagni was performing a sacrifice when a king named Kartavirya Arjuna interrupted him. Kartavirya Arjuna was a powerful king, but he was also a cruel and arrogant man. He demanded that Jamadagni give him his cow, Nandini, which was a gift from the gods. Jamadagni refused, and Kartavirya Arjuna became enraged. He killed Jamadagni and took Nandini away. Parashurama was enraged when he learned of his father's death. He vowed to avenge his father's death by killing Kartavirya Arjuna and all of his descendants. Parashurama went on a rampage, killing thousands of people. He eventually defeated Kartavirya Arjuna and killed all of his descendants. Parashurama then became a great warrior and a teacher of martial arts. He is still revered today as a powerful and righteous figure.
