Mahurgad Renuka Devi Story

Mahur Renuka Devi Story / Mahurgad Renuka Devi  Story / Renuka Yellamma Story :

Renuka Yellamma and Jamdagni Muni lived in the Ramshrung Mountains, near the current day of Savadatti in the Belgaum district. Renuka Yellamma helped the Jamdagni Muni in all his tasks related to the execution of various rituals and puja. Gradually she became very close and dear to Jamdagni.

After a while, Renuka Yellamma gave birth to five sons, namely Vasu, Viswavasu, Brihudyanu, Brutwakanwa, and Rama Bhadra. The youngest son Ramabhadra is an incarnation of Lord Mahavishnu, later known as Parashurama. Parashurama was a powerful champion mastering all sciences. He did an immense penance for Lord Shiva and bought an ax from Maha Parashu. Then he is called Parashurama.

Renuka Yellamma Early Life :

Every day, Devi Renuka  went to fetch water from a nearby river and this water was used for sacred rituals. Through her dedication to her husband and her ideality, Renuka was able to make pots out of dry sand. She makes a fresh pot of sand every day at the riverbed and wore it on her head swaying with a black cobra.

One fine morning, while Renuka Devi was heading towards the river to bring water by means of sandpots. After making pots, she entered the river to pour water.
In the water, she found the shadow of the Gandharva couple in prey to sexual games. Renuka woke up seeing this concentration lost and his sandpot on his head was broken. she tried to make a new pot but the sand became piles and she was unable to finish it. She tried to catch Adhiseshu but she can not even catch him as this snake started to fly. She learned the reason for these things and went to the hermitage empty-handed. Seeing Renuka arrive empty-handed, Jamadhagni learned what had happened and cursed her for having a terrible skin disease. She curses her for the protection of all the Panchabhuthas. He also asked her to leave the hermitage and not be in his eyes.

Punishment and Resurrection :
Jamadagni was furious with Renuka and ordered his sons to punish their mother. One by one, four of them categorically refused. Jamadagni, who had the power to burn anyone in one glance, went mad and turned the four of his sons into ashes. Parashurama, who was not there when it happened, found her mother crying near the piles of ash when she arrived and her father was still angry. Jamadagni told him what happened and ordered him to behead his mother for his unfaithfulness. Parashurama had to think quickly. Knowing his father’s powers and the extent of his anger, Parashurama immediately obeyed his father, using his axe.

His father then offered a bargain to Parashurama, who asked that his mother and brothers be brought back to life. To everyone’s surprise, Renuka’s spirit multiplied and moved to different regions. Renuka was back as a whole too. This miracle led her sons and others to become her disciples and to worship her.
