kali yuga predictions

 

Most of the Kali Yuga predictions have already become a reality. It has been written in the ancient Hindu scriptures that Dharma (the right way of living) represented by a bull will stand only on one leg in the age of Kali. Predictions of what will happen in Kali Yuga are mentioned in the Mahabharat and the Bhagavata Purana.

It remains to be seen if all the predictions of Kali Yuga mentioned in these scriptures will come true.

Kali Yuga predictions made by Sri Krishna and Sage Markendya.

In Kali Yuga, people will become a slave to lust, anger and pride.

Ignorant people will delight in violence and kill each other and other species in the name of religion.

People will lead bewildered lives. Fake spiritual people will exploit this state of ignorance and become mass leaders leading people further into their destruction.

People in power will rob the state and commit crimes on the people they are supposed to protect.

The main purpose of life will be to please the senses. In the age of Kali, only wealth will be considered as a virtue and a wealthy man will command the respect of everyone.

People will become intoxicated and having no control of their lives,  remain in ignorance. Overcome by lust, people will lead a meaningless existence.

Men will indulge in actions that destroy nature and nature in turn will destroy men.

Children will stop caring for the parents and society will become devoid of values.

Men and women will live together merely because of superficial attraction, and success in business will depend on deceit.

People will look for truth outside themselves. Seeking peace externally, people will change from one religion to another.

Anyone who is clever at juggling words will be considered a learned scholar and lead the masses.

As the earth thus becomes crowded with a corrupt population, whoever among any of the social classes shows himself to be the strongest will gain political power.

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. The citizens will suffer greatly from cold, wind, heat, rain and snow. They will be further tormented by quarrels, hunger, thirst, disease and severe anxiety.

The maximum duration of life for human beings in Kali yuga will become fifty years.

While these were the predictions for Kali Yuga, the scriptures also tell us how how to remain happy in the age of Kali.
