Plot[edit]

Atri and Anasuya meditate on the Trinity - Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva with the desire of obtaining a son who is an embodiment of the Trinity. As a result, the trinity gift themselves to the couple by taking incarnation as their son Dattatreya. Dattatreya becomes Yogiraja in course of time and sets up an ashram in Sahyadri hills along with his consort Anagha Devi. Indra having been dethroned by Jambhasura seeks refuge at Shri Datta swamy's feet on Narada maharshi's advice. Datta swamy and Anagha Devi bring peril to Jambhasura with their yogic powers. Vishnudatta, a Brahmin scholar unknowingly brings about a change in a (Brahmarakshasa) Demon's behaviours. Out of gratitude, the demon promises to take Vishnu Datta to Datta Swamy. On passing Datta Swamy's difficult test, he gets Upadesham from Datta Swamy. Kartavirya Arjuna, a prince born with defects seeks refuge at Datta Swamy's feet. On passing his divine test, Kartavirya is bestowed with great power and becomes a just ruler. But overcome by pride, he steals Maharshi Jamadagni's cow Surabhi. Bhargava Rama- Sri Vishnu incarnate, Jamadhagni Maharshi's son kills Kartaveerya. Upon hearing this news, Kartaveerya's sons and their close aides raid Jamadhagni's ashram in the absence of Bhargava Rama and behead Maharshi Jamadhagni. Bhargava Rama vows to kill all Kshatriyas(kings) with his axe (Parashu) and gains the name Parashurama. After the fulfilment of his oath he repents and seeks refuge at Shri Datta Swamy's feet. Datta Swamy shows him the path to eternal happiness.
