Prophesied events during a Kali Yuga
A discourse by Markandeya in the Mahabharata identifies some of the attributes of Kali Yuga.
In relation to rulers, it lists:
Rulers will become unreasonable: they will levy taxes unfairly. (Note the deliberate conflation of avoidance and evasion.)
Rulers will no longer see it as their duty to promote spirituality, or to protect their subjects: they will become a danger to the world. (US Presidents and UK Prime Ministers have been a succession of warmongers.)
People will start migrating, seeking countries where wheat and barley form the staple food source. (Mass immigration.)
"At the end of Kali-yuga, when there exist no topics on the subject of God, even at the residences of so-called saints and respectable gentlemen of the three higher varnas [guna or temperament] and when nothing is known of the techniques of sacrifice, even by word, at that time the Lord will appear as the supreme chastiser." (Srimad-Bhagavatam (2.7) (Neither the Church of England nor the Catholic Church are fit for the purpose of protecting the morals of the people.)
With regard to human relationships, Markandeya's discourse says:
Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other.
Ignorance of dharma will occur.
People will have thoughts of murder with no justification and will see nothing wrong in that.
Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life. (The civil partnership has lead to gay marriage, has it not?)
Sin will increase exponentially, whilst virtue will fade and cease to flourish. (Virtue and principle is mocked as stupidity deserving of exploitation.)
People will take vows and break them soon after. (No-fault divorce.)
People will become addicted to intoxicating drinks and drugs.
Gurus will no longer be respected and their students will attempt to injure them. Their teachings will be insulted, and followers of Kama will wrest control of the mind from all human beings.
The maximum lifespan of a human in this age is 90-100 years.
Brahmans will not be learned or honored, Kshatriyas will not be brave, Vaishyas will not be just in their dealings.
Do they mean us?
Kali Yuga - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia en.wikipedia.org
Kali Yuga (Devanāgarī: कलियुग[kəli juɡə], lit. "age of [the demon] Kali", or "age of vice") is the last of the four stages the world goes through as part of the cycle of yugas described in the Indian scriptures. The other ages are Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga and Dvapara Yuga.
“Out of the corruption of women proceeds the confusion of races; out of the confusion of races, the loss of memory; out of the loss of memory, the loss of understanding; and out of this, all evil.”
-Bhagavad Gita, I, verse 41 et seq.
(as quoted by Savetri Devi in The Lightening and the Sun, page 139)
The corruption of women flows from feminism.
