The Transition of The Ages
Like a magnetic pole reversal!
As the darkness is ushered out, the Dark Age of Kali Yuga is coming to a close.
Kali Yuga is associated with the demon Kali. Kali means strife, discord, quarrel or contention.
Hindus believe that human civilization degenerates spiritually during the Kali Yuga, because in it people are as far away as possible from God. Hinduism often symbolically represents morality (Dharma) as an indian bull. Currently, in the Immoral age of Kali, the indian bull Dharma stands on only one leg.
Some of the attributes of Kali Yuga. In relation to rulers:
- 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.
- 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 temperaments, and when nothing is known of the techniques of sacrifice, even by word, at that time the Lord will appear as the supreme chastiser.
- 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.
- Sin will increase exponentially, while 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.
As the Light becomes more abundant, the Golden Age of Satya Yuga is beginning.
The Satya Yuga, the Age of Truth, is when humanity is governed by gods, and every manifestation or work is close to the purest ideal and humanity will allow intrinsic goodness to rule supreme. The goddess Dharma / Morality (depicted in the form of indian bull) stands on all four legs during this period. Bhagwan Kalki in the Satya Yuga shall destroy all the dacoits and robbers.
Knowledge, meditation, and penance hold special importance in this era. All the pillars of religion are present in totality. During Satya Yuga, all people engage only in good, sublime deeds. This is the time when all people are happy.
[...] there were no poor and no rich; there was no need to labour, because all that men required was obtained by the power of will; the chief virtue was the abandonment of all worldly desires. The Krita Yuga was without disease; there was no lessening with the years; there was no hatred or vanity, or evil thought; no sorrow, no fear. All mankind could attain to supreme blessedness. [...]
On the advent of the Satya Yuga all people shall engage assiduously in good, sublime deeds. One shall witness the emergence of beautiful gardens, retreats, and majestic temples. This era shall usher better agriculture and one shall be able to grow all food grains in all seasons. People shall generously donate and will follow all the rules and regulations mentioned. The kings shall protect their subjects and earth very sincerely.
