Parashurama was human incarnation of God. Human incarnation means a human being possessed by God. The human being may be of lower type or of higher type. Parashurama is a lower type of human being and Rama, a higher type of human being was also the human incarnation. The unimaginable God charging both the human beings is one and the same. Rama is an alloy of Gold and silver. Parashurama is an alloy of Gold and copper. Gold is one and the same in both the alloys, but silver is higher metal than copper. Dasharatha or Janaka was a higher type of human being, who is pure silver metal. Rama, Dasharatha and Janaka requested Parashurama not to be furious and the reason for such humble nature of these three people was that these three people were noble persons. God existing in Rama and Parashurama has nothing to do with their individual human natures. God is confined to His specific program only.

God will not interfere with the nature and properties of the medium in which He exists. If the nature of the medium changes by the interaction of God, devotees will not freely mix with the human incarnation. The normal nature of the medium always gives a strong impression on the minds of the observers that the human incarnation is a human being only and not God. This impression makes the devotees feel free to interact with the human incarnation with free access to clarify their doubts and get correct direction in the spiritual path. Thus, when Parashurama was shouting with anger on Rama, it is the nature of the human being that is exhibiting the anger.

The human being in this human incarnation was full of Rajas, which is the source of ego. The human being in the human incarnation of Rama was full of Sattvam, which is the source of humility and humbleness. The difference between Rama and Parashurama is the difference between silver and copper and the similarity between them is about the gold. From the point of gold, both are same human incarnation. From the point of silver and copper, the behavior is different. Even Dasaratha and Janaka were pious and humble compared to Parashurama. The human nature of both Dasaratha and Janaka was of higher type than that of Parashurama. As far as the Pravrutti or the human dealing is concerned, it is only the nature of copper and silver is to be analyzed and the gold is silent. You may get a doubt that why the gold is selecting copper for alloying in such case. God selects a particular type of human being for a particular program. God wanted to kill all the Kings, who were showing extreme ego and for this program, the human being full of Rajas is needed. Hence, Parashurama was selected. God wanted to preach the ideal behavior of a perfect human being to the humanity and for this purpose, Rama, with full of Sattvam is selected to suit the program. Therefore, a devotee can be higher than the human incarnation with reference to the human nature.

One day, I told Surya that he is far superior than Myself. He immediately denied this and told that I am God. He believes Me as the human incarnation of God. Assuming that I am the human incarnation, My statement was with reference to the human nature and not with reference to the God existing in Me. I told him that I am copper and he is silver. Therefore, you have to analyze the human incarnation with reference to the medium and God separately. The prayers of Jesus, a human incarnation, are to be attributed to the human nature of the medium and the statements like that He is the savior must be attributed to God present in him. All the defects of the human incarnation are to be attributed to the human nature of the medium and not to God.

Rama went after the golden deer in spite of the advice of Lakshmana. It is the human nature of the medium that made Rama to go after the golden deer due to the blind bond to his wife. You should not think that the human incarnation is either God or the human being completely. It is a single phase system with two components homogeneously mixed. In certain contexts, it behaves as God and in certain other contexts it behaves as a human being. But, the nature of the human being in the human incarnation is as per the direction of the God only. The God component in Parashurama and Rama is one and the same, which wanted to project the budding Rama and suppress the retiring Parashurama. As per the will of God only, the entire scene took place. The aim of this scene was to show that any human being including the human being present in human incarnation, should not take the credit of power of God on to it. Parashurama thought that he killed all the kings and therefore, he was taught about the truth.
