This game of hide and seek took place several times, until the lands of Anga. Kalinga, Malawa, Videha, Kashmir, Kunti, Shibi, that were formerly the strongholds of the kshatriyas were entirely rid of the warrior race. Some great battles were fought, one of them on the famous field of Kurukshetra and legendary accounts state that the Ramadoha was overflowing with kshatriya blood. Rather strangely, Ganesh became involved in the struggle and unfortunately on the wrong side. But he escaped by loosing nothing more than one of his tusks, whereby he came to be known as Ekadant. Ultimately the earth became void of any warriors, the face of the earth-'urvitala became nir-vira -without any fighter. And now Bhargavrama decided to retire from the contest. Richika, his grand father came down from the heavens to advise Parashurama to stop the blood-shed.
He decided to respect the opinion of his elders and before going back to his jungle abode planned to celebrate a sacrifice. Bhargavrama, through his triumph over the kshatriyas had become the Lord of the Earth and hence everything about the Yajnya was on a grand and magnificent scale.
