Before 300 years,Habitat was not there on Mahendra hill. In the village Pedhe on the banks of river Vashishthi, there were fields and farmers who used to live there. Those farmers took their cattles towards Mahendra Hill for grazing. The elders were busy in their farming and the children used to go for grazing their cattles. But one of the cows never gave milk for many days. The farmer suspected his son that he used to drink milk and scolded him. The hurt cowherd kept the watch on cow.
One day he found that on one place that cow used to release her milk.Almost in tears that cowherd went to home. He told the fact to his parents. Those parents accompanied by the neighbours went to that spot in the forest on Mahendra Hill, where todays temple of lord Parshuram is situated. They observed the spot very keenly, and they were astonished. They cleaned the surrounding and found the “Swayambhu Sthan” original medium sized stone which had divine spirit in it. Those farmers became devotional towards the almighty and constructed a small chamber around it.
The cowherd who watched the cow offering her milk on Swayambhu Sthan chased the cow to catch her. But to his great surprise, the cow disappeared suddenly at the bottom of the hill. The cowherd with his family searched the cow everywhere and at last built a small hut on the place where cow disappeared.The Farmers everyday started offering milk and water on the Swayambhu Sthan and started performing pooja regularly. In the respect of that divine cow Temple Trust has started construction of Cowpen (Goshala) in front of Lord Parshuram Temple. All the devotees will be able to take darshan of the cow here.
Lord Parshuram, who is worshipped throughout Indian continent, is believed to be Lord Vishnu’s reincarnation. He is also believed to be an immortal and Guru Brahmendraswami is credited with the important task of preserving his legacy. Guru Brahmendraswami is himself also considered to be a miracle in the history. Guru Brahmendraswami was born in Dudhawadi in Beed district of Maharashtra. His original name was Vishnupant Kulkarni. His father was a priest but the family was very poor. Immediately after his thread ceremony, in 1657, both of his parents expired leaving him alone. The young Vishnupant was interested in the study of spiritual and religious issues. He went to Rajur and started meditating in the Ganesh temple there.
