Parashurama is one of the most revered sages of the Sri Vidya tradition. His conversation with his teacher is the subject of an important tantric source text, Tripura Rahasya. Who would guess from his spiritual achievements that he had once murdered thousands of people? In this lecture, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait shares the dark moments of Parashurama’s history to help us let go of our own past mistakes. The first step toward self-transformation is self-forgiveness. No matter what you have done, you can move forward: take it from Parashurama.
