According to Hindu belief we are currently living in the age of Kali. There are four ages all in all, but the age that we are in now which started on the 31 st of January 3102 BC is under the influence of the demon Kali. Many hindu scholars say that this current yuga will last a total of 432000 years.
So…we got about 427000 years with this one to look forward to.
So what does that really mean?
The age of Kali is the age of strife and the human race will degenerate during this period. Our leaders will be corrupt and people will lack morals. Lets say that the demonic force of Kali will be the zeitgeist of our time.
Here is a short list of attributes shown by our leaders during the Kali Yuga summarized by Markandeya.
Rulers will become unreasonable: they will levy taxes unfairly
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
People will start migrating, seeking countries where wheat and barley form the staple food source
So…greedy goverment? Check!
Police states emerging? Check!
Immigrants in nations where wheat is staple? Check!
How about the general populace? How are ordinary people expected to behave under the influence of a demon, lets find out shall we?
Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other
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
Sin will increase exponentially, whilst virtue will fade and cease to flourish
People will take vows and break them soon after
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 (sex addicts) will wrest control of the mind from all human beings
ok…so lets sum it up….
An abnormal fixation about sex in our society? Duuuh…check that!
Seven deadly sins flaunted shamelessly? Check!
Liar liar wall street on fire? Check!
Drug use? Check!
Militant atheism, mocking of faith and yet again, a pornofication of culture? Check!
Seems like them hindus knew what they were talking about, this is the age of Kali, no doubt about that. This blog is hopefully gonna be a sort of survival guide for you guys in these demon ridden times. I am going to return this subject from time to time in this blog because I am fascinated by the times we are living in and the cultural and social impact which the kali Yuga brings us.
