Kaliyug

Our entire history talks about four yug or era i.e Satyug, Treta yug, Dwapar yug and Kaliyug. When the Bhagwat Purana was written in the end are mentioned 5 predictions that would get true when Kaliyug reaches its peak. Though all these predictions were made 5000 years back they seem to be coming true now. Let us read about 5 predictions of Kaliyug and you tell us whether they are getting fulfilled or not.

1) Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.1

sri-suka uvaca

tatas canu-dinam dharmah

satyam saucam ksama daya

kalena balina rajan

nanksyaty ayur balam smrtih

 

Meaning– The age of Kali would morally degrade everything. This would lead to a downfall in mercy, human age, cleanliness, religion, truthfulness, tolerance, physical strength and memory.

2) Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.6

dūre vāry-ayanaḿ

tīrthaḿ lāvaṇyaḿ keśa-dhāraṇam

udaraḿ-bharatā svārthaḥ

 satyatve dhārṣṭyam eva hi

dākṣyaḿ kuṭumba-bharaṇaḿ

yaśo ‘rthe dharma-sevanam

 

Meaning-In the kaliyug any holy place is only going to be a location which has a water body near it. A person’s beauty will be determined by the hairstyle he or she sports. The goal of life would be only to keep your tummy full and people who rebel or fight would be considered truthful. Religious principles would be followed only in name and a person who can maintain his family well would be a rarity.
