Parshuram Jayanti is a Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Lord Parshuram, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu. This year, it will be observed on Saturday, April 22, 2023. It is observed on the 10th day of the Shukla Paksha, or the waxing phase of the moon, in the Hindu month of Vaishakha (April/May). Lord Parshuram is revered for his bravery, warrior skills, and knowledge of the Hindu scriptures. He is considered to be one of the seven immortals in Hinduism and is worshipped as the patron deity of the Kshatriya warrior caste. On Parshuram Jayanti, devotees offer prayers, perform religious rituals, and listen to hymns and stories related to Lord Parshuram. It is also a day of fasting and abstaining from non-vegetarian food, and is seen as an opportunity for spiritual reflection and renewal. The festival is widely celebrated in India, especially in the western state of Maharashtra, and is an important part of the Hindu religious calendar.
