    16 Most Amazing Predictions for Kali Yuga

    Blog by Pallavi Thakur

    1. Predictions for Kali Yuga from the Bhagavata Purana

    In the last canto of the Bhagavata Purana there is a list of predictions and prophecies about the dark times for the present age of Kali Yuga. The following 15 predictions, written 5,000 years ago by sage Vedavyasa, are amazing because they appear so accurate. Despite the negative tone of these prophecies, there is still one bright spot for all of us, which is mentioned at the end.

    2. Prediction 1
    Religion, truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, duration of life, physical strength and memory will all diminish day by day because of the powerful influence of the age of Kali. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.1 – “sri-suka uvaca…tatas canu-dinam dharmah…satyam saucam ksama daya…kalena balina rajan…nanksyaty ayur balam smrtih”

    3. Prediction 2

    In Kali Yuga, wealth alone will be considered the sign of a man's good birth, proper behaviour and fine qualities. And law and justice will be applied only on the basis of one's power. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.2 – “vittam eva kalau nṝṇāḿ…janmācāra-guṇodayaḥ…dharma-nyāya-vyavasthāyāḿ…kāraṇaḿ balam eva hi”

    4. Prediction 3

    Men and women will live together merely because of superficial attraction, and success in business will depend on deceit. Womanliness and manliness will be judged according to one's expertise in sex, and a man will be known as a brahmana just by his wearing a thread. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.3 – “dāmpatye 'bhirucir hetur…māyaiva vyāvahārike…strītve puḿstve ca hi ratir…vipratve sūtram eva hi”

    5. Prediction 4

    A person's spiritual position will be ascertained merely according to external symbols, and on that same basis people will change from one spiritual order to the next. A person's propriety will be seriously questioned if he does not earn a good living. And one who is very clever at juggling words will be considered a learned scholar. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.4 – “lińgaḿ evāśrama-khyātāv…anyonyāpatti-kāraṇam…avṛttyā nyāya-daurbalyaḿ…pāṇḍitye cāpalaḿ vacaḥ”

    6. Prediction 5
    A person will be judged unholy if he does not have money, and hypocrisy will be accepted as virtue. Marriage will be arranged simply by verbal agreement, and a person will think he is fit to appear in public if he has merely taken a bath. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.5 – anāḍhyataivāsādhutve…sādhutve dambha eva tu…svīkāra eva codvāhe…snānam eva prasādhanam”

    7. Prediction 6

    A sacred place will be taken to consist of no more than a reservoir of water located at a distance, and beauty will be thought to depend on one's hairstyle. Filling the belly will become the goal of life, and one who is audacious will be accepted as truthful. He who can maintain a family will be regarded as an expert man, and the principles of religion will be observed only for the sake of reputation. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.6 – “dūre vāry-ayanaḿ tīrthaḿ…lāvaṇyaḿ keśa-dhāraṇam…udaraḿ-bharatā svārthaḥ…satyatve dhārṣṭyam eva hi…dākṣyaḿ kuṭumba-bharaṇaḿ…yaśo 'rthe dharma-sevanam”

    8. Prediction 7
    As the earth thus becomes crowded with a corrupt population, whoever among any of ther social classes shows himself to be the strongest will gain political power. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.7 – “evaḿ prajābhir duṣṭābhir…ākīrṇe kṣiti-maṇḍale…brahma-viṭ-kṣatra-śūdrāṇāḿ…yo balī bhavitā nṛpaḥ”

    9. Prediction 8
    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. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.9 – “śāka-mūlāmiṣa-kṣaudra…phala-puṣpāṣṭi-bhojanāḥ…anāvṛṣṭyā vinańkṣyanti…durbhikṣa-kara-pīḍitāḥ”

    10. Prediction 9
    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. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.10 – “śīta-vātātapa-prāvṛḍ…himair anyonyataḥ prajāḥ…kṣut-tṛḍbhyāḿ vyādhibhiś caiva….santapsyante ca cintayā”

    11. Prediction 10

    The maximum duration of life for human beings in Kali Yuga will become 50 years. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.11 - triḿśad viḿśati varṣāṇi….paramāyuḥ kalau nṛṇām”

    12. Prediction 11

    Because of the bad qualities of the age of Kali, human beings will become shortsighted, unfortunate, gluttonous, lustful and poverty-stricken. The women, becoming unchaste, will freely wander from one man to the next. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam - “tasmāt kṣudra-dṛśo martyāḥ….kṣudra-bhāgyā mahāśanāḥ…..kāmino vitta-hīnāś ca….svairiṇyaś ca striyo ‘satīḥ”

    13. Prediction 12
    In Kali-yuga men will develop hatred for each other even over a few coins. Giving up all friendly relations, they will be ready to lose their own lives and kill even their own relatives. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.41 – “kalau kakinike 'py arthe….vigrihya tyakta-sauhridah….tyakshyanti ca priyan pranan….hanishyanti svakan api”.

    14. Prediction 13

    Uncultured men will accept charity on behalf of the Lord and will earn their livelihood by making a show of austerity and wearing a mendicant's dress. Those who know nothing about religion will mount a high seat and presume to speak on religious principles. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.38 – “sudrah pratigrahishyanti….tapo-veshopajivinah….dharmam vakshyanty adharma-jna….adhiruhyottamasanam”

    15. Prediction 14

    Servants will abandon a master who has lost his wealth, even if that master is a saintly person of exemplary character. Masters will abandon an incapacitated servant, even if that servant has been in the family for generations. Cows will be abandoned or killed when they stop giving milk. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.36 – “patim tyakshyanti nirdravyam….bhritya apy akhilottamam…..bhrityam vipannam patayah…..kaulam gas capayasvinih”

    16. Prediction 15

    Cities will be dominated by thieves, the Vedas will be contaminated by speculative interpretations of atheists, political leaders will virtually consume the citizens, and the so-called priests and intellectuals will be devotees of their bellies and genitals. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.32 – “dasyutkrishta janapada….vedah pashanda-dushitah….rajanas ca praja-bhakshah….sisnodara-para dvijah”.

    17. Prediction 16

    Men will no longer protect their elderly parents. Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.42 – “na rakshishyanti manujah….sthavirau pitarav api”

    18. The only Hope
    Despite all of these dark prophecies, there is one good quality in this age of Kali yuga: “kaler dosha-nidhe rajann….asti hy eko maha gunah….kirtanad eva krishnasya…..mukta-sangah param vrajet.” Although Kali-yuga is an ocean of faults, there is still one good quality about this age: simply by chanting the names of Krishna, one can become free from material bondage and be promoted to the transcendental kingdom.

    All these 'predictions' are pretty general. There will be thieves in city ... seriously, this is a prediction? Taxes will go up ... this is a prediction?
