He had four sons, Thannuvan, Anuvan, Vishvavasu and Parasurama.? Parasurama was an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.? With the power of her chastity, Renuka had the skill of making pots with river sand.? She will bring water from the river in new such pots each day.? One day as she was making the sand pot, she saw the reflection of a Gandharva flying on the sky and for a moment was stunned by his handsomeness and lost the power of making sand pots.? Jamadagni realized the incident with his wisdom eye and decided to award the capital punishment to her and asked Parasrama to behead his mother.? As the rule goes, the word of father should not be violated, Parasurama killed his mother.? Pleased Jamadagni asked his son his wish.? Parasurama demanded his mother back which Jamadagni could not deny.? Since then, Mother Renuka had become Mother Mari Amman blessing people with health and prosperity.
