In the previous episode, we had witnessed the continuation on the discussion of how the Kali Yuga would span out after the ascent of Bhagawan Krishna. Sage Sukhaachaarya is giving a startling description of how the Kali Yuga would turn out to be and he’s step-wise describing what are the characteristics that people in the Kali Yuga would possess. He commenced by explaining how people’s lifespan would reduce to less than a hundred years and their height would reduce to around 6 feet on an average. He also explained how people’s sole focus would be money, name and fame and they would go to any extent to achieve it. People would be termed “intelligent” and “smart” only if they cheat others and dump them for their own personal growth. Over a period of time, governments would become the biggest thieves in this world, as they would burden the honest taxpayers with excessive taxes, only for looting all of the money into their pockets. People would get more and more poorer because the government policies would be in such a way that it would only keep grabbing money from the people, and nothing goes back to them. There would be no accountability from the government’s side to the people. Corruption would be rampant and this would be the order of the day amidst the government machineries.
Moreover, we’ve also witnessed how “Vidhwans” (Experts) in any form of arts, science, etc. would be measured only in terms of money and bogus output, rather than genuine contributions to the upliftment of the world. Sage Sukhaachaarya also explains how climatology would undergo a change for good – We’ve witnessed yesterday that in the Kali Yuga, there would be either excessive rains or no rains at all! There wouldn’t be an evenly distributed rainfall pattern. It would either be floods or droughts, and nothing in the middle. Finally, Sage Sukhaachaarya explains that people would forget the “Varnaashrama Dharma” completely and everybody would start doing everything, in the name of “equality”. Thus, the balance in the world would totally be lost with such mentalities of people.
It is at this time when the Kali Yuga reaches its peak, there would be a village by name “Sambalam”. In this village there would be a person by name Vishnu-Yashas. It is to this person, would Bhagawan Vishnu re-incarnate as Bhagawan Kalki. Sage Sukhaachaarya beautifully explains Bhagawan’s Kalki Avataar here, and we can see how foresighted our ancient Maharishis were. Sage Sukhaachaarya explains here how Bhagawan Kalki would look like – He would appear on top of a white horse and would possess a huge sword in His hands.
“Vicharan naasunaakshonyaam hayena ahprathimathdyutihi!
Drupalingahchayodasyun kotisho niha nishyati!!”
Sage Sukhaachaarya explains here that Bhagawna Kalki would be an extremely ferocious person by nature. By the time He incarnates, He would have seen enough and more in this world. He would ride on His white horse, slash His sword towards all those people who follow “Adharma”. Sage Sukhaachaarya explains here that Bhagawan Kalki’s targets would be all those who are “Adharmic” in nature – Those who cheat others, those who are terrorists, those who are trying to iniflict misery over good people, etc. and He would thus make sure that at the end of the day, all those people who walk the path of Adharma are totally rooted out of this world. At this point, Sage Sukhaachaarya explains that all of a sudden the entire population of the world would come down drastically. There would be mass deaths that would take place. The entire world would sink into an untold misery and this is how Bhagawan Kalki would re-establish the Dharma in this world.
It is not to be mistaken by the readers that Bhagawan Kalki would destroy the entire world as such. The world would still be there and it is only those who walk the path of Adharma who would be destroyed. We’ve already witnessed in the first and second “Skandhas”, as to when the world would be destroyed isn’t it? It is only when the “Bhoo-Lokha”, “Bhuvar-Lokha” and “Suvar-Lokha” gets destroyed, will ours get destroyed as well. Thus, readers shouldn’t confuse the point here – Bhagawan Kalki is not going to destroy the world. He’s only going to destroy the Adharma in this world.
So for today, let us understand these points clearly and let us wait for the next episode to witness the continuation of this absorbing discussion! Stay tuned! 🙂
