Thousands of sacred names of Lord Parashurama, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu was composed by Lord Rama while returning from Milthila after the glorious wedding to Goddess Seetha, whoever reads of listens or write these sacred hymns praising the glories of Lord Parashurama would be benefitted with the merits of performance of  thousands of Ashwamedha Yajna, worshiper would be blessed with wealth, fame, valor, happiness, virtuous offspring and eight kinds of Siddhis, worshiper who distribute the sacred hymns to a Vaishnavite after worship of Lord Parashurama, will not face any kinds of misfortune, poverty, loss of dearest people or clan, and the worshiper will remain beloved of Lord Rudra and Lord Parashurama.


These thousands of glorious verse of Lord Parashurama was narrated by Dhasharatha Rama to his relatives while returning to Ayodhya with his father, mother, brothers and relatives, Rama who is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu described the splendor of Bhargava Rama who is personified for the annihilation of wicked Kshathriyas.


Sri Raghava speaks “whoever read or listens to these sacred names and worship Lord Parashurama, would attain the perpetual grace of Bhargava, worshiper would be relieved from worldly desires and immerses in the meditation of Lord, ultimately born in the illustrious clan of Madhava, worshiper would attain self – realization and remain Yogi with the grace of Bhargava, he is supreme soul incarnated for the performance of pastime, therefore I shall prostrate before Jamadhagnyam.  His simple grimace would create terror in Lord Bhrama and deities, I shall prostrate before Shakthi /Mahadevi Devi Renuka, who is immersed in several years of severe penance.”
