Kali Yuga

 

So what is it about this word ‘Know’?

What is so special about it? A word for which, after 5000 years of Language, intriguingly overlapping with the birth of the Kali-Yuga, we still do not have a proper definition.

Kali Yuga, from the Viṣṇu Purāṇa [the millennia beginning around 400 BCE]

There will be monarchs, men of churlish disposition and violent temper…Property alone will show rank.. wealth the only devotion..passion the sole bond of sexual union.. the Earth venerated for its mineral treasures..fine clothes will be dignity..(The Sacred thread ) the Brahmin.. menace and presumption will substitute for learning..dishonesty, the universal means of subsistence..

Kali Yuga ends when the understanding of Veda stands fully inverted, upside down.


This was tucked away in one of my old files. I don’t recall the lucid Translator of this verse. If you do, drop me a note.
