In Hindu Puranas, there are two mentions of southward spread of vedic civilization, one was by Agastya Muni and the other by Parashurama after he decimated 21 generations of Kshatriyas.

Is it known about the chronological sequence of these two unrelated events?

  • Mahabali's son is believed to be from Andhra, according to the folktale here. Vamana lived in 7th Treta Yuga of Vaivastara Manvantara.

  • How is Malabali's son from Andra when he himself ruled over Kerala? BTW, since Keralapradesham was reclaimed land from sea by Parashurama, Parashurama's southward journey has to be further in the past. May 31, 2016 at 11:55

    I think in the time of Mahabali Kerala existed, then at some point it was submerged by the ocean, then at a later time Parashurama got the ocean to recede. The story of Vamana happened long before Parashurama was even born. Parashurama was only born in the 19th Treta Yuga. May 31, 2016 at 13:10
