śrī-śukaḥ uvāca — Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said; pitrā — by his father; upaśikṣitaḥ — thus advised; rāmaḥ — Lord Paraśurāma; tathā iti — let it be so; kuru-nandana — O son of the Kuru dynasty, Mahārāja Parīkṣit; saṁvatsaram — for one complete year; tīrtha-yātrām — traveling to all the holy places; caritvā — after executing; āśramam — to his own residence; āvrajat — returned.
Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: My dear Mahārāja Parīkṣit, son of the Kuru dynasty, when Lord Paraśurāma was given this order by his father, he immediately agreed, saying, “Let it be so.” For one complete year he traveled to holy places. Then he returned to his father’s residence.
