Srimad Bhagavat Mahapuran in its last Canto (12) has described in detail how the age of deterioration or as we say Kali Yuga will look like. Other Hindu scriptures have also dealt with the subject. But here we are taking 10 amazing predictions of Kali Yuga as described by Srimad Bhagavat Mahapuran.
They are amazing in a sense that they all look so true.
Religion, truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, duration of life, physical strength and memory will all diminish day by day because of the powerful influence of the age of Kali.
In Kali Yuga, wealth alone will be considered as a sign of a man’s good birth, proper behaviour and virtues. And law and justice will be applied only on the basis of one’s power.
A sacred place will be taken to consist of no more than a reservoir of water located at a distance, and beauty will be thought to depend on one’s hairstyle. Filling the belly will become the goal of life, and one who is audacious will be accepted as truthful. He who can maintain a family will be regarded as an expert man, and the principles of religion will be observed only for the sake of reputation.
A person’s spiritual position will be ascertained merely according to external symbols, and on that same basis people will change from one spiritual order to the next. A person’s propriety will be seriously questioned if he does not earn a good living. And one who is very clever at juggling words will be considered a learned scholar.
A person will be judged unholy if he does not have money, and hypocrisy will be accepted as virtue. Marriage will be arranged simply by verbal agreement, and a person will think he is fit to appear in public if he has merely taken a bath.
As the earth becomes crowded with a corrupt population, whoever among any of the social classes shows himself to be the strongest will gain political power.
Men and women will live together merely because of superficial attraction, and success in business will depend on deceit. Womanliness and manliness will be judged according to one’s expertise in sense gratification.
Harassed by famine and excessive taxes, people will resort to eating leaves, roots, flesh, wild honey, fruits, flowers and seeds. Struck by drought, they will become completely ruined.
Citizens will suffer greatly from cold, wind, heat, rain and snow. They will be further tormented by quarrels, hunger, thirst, disease and severe anxiety.
Age of the humans of the world will decrease. The maximum duration of life for human beings in Kali Yuga will be fifty years.
