Hindu God Parashurama, Vishnu Avatar - Rama with Axe

http://www.bronzecreative.com/images/parashurama-axe.jpg

The sixth avatar, Parshurama, appeared in the Tretayuga to destroy the warrior caste. Parsu is the name of an axe-like weapon adopted by this incarnation.  Parasuram was a Brahmin who manifested himself at the close of the satya-yug. This appearance was for the purpose of defeating the tyranny of the power-drunk kshatriyas.  When the kings of the earth became despotic and started to harm people and saints in the forest, Vishnu incarnated as Parshurama and destroyed all the kings who were harassing the people.
When the Kshatriya kings of the earth and their ministers became very corrupt and tyrannical, the goddess Prithvi (Mother Earth) went to Lord Vishnu and prayed for relief. Lord Vishnu answered the prayer and appeared on the earth as a descendant of the great sage Brigu. Parasuram avenged the gruesome murder of his father by a Kshatriya king and freed the earth of oppression perpetrated by the rulers by clearing the earth of kshatriyas.
