The word Diwali has originated from Deepavali, and root name is taken from the Deepawali word whereas deep means (lamp) + avali means (row), putting Lamps in a row or in a sequence. Deepavali is thus a row of lamps. During Diwali, lamps are lit everywhere where darkness is there.

HistoryWhen Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after completing fourteen years in exile, His subjects celebrated by lighting lamps. Since then, the festival of Diwali has been celebrated.

The spiritual meaning of Diwali‘By killing the demon Narkasur, Shrikrushna freed people from an attitude of indulgence in worldly pleasures, jealousy, unrighteousness and negative attitudes and made them happy by giving thoughts of God (or Divine thoughts), which is what Diwali is about. We have been celebrating Diwali year after year merely as a custom. Today the festival has lost its true meaning. If after comprehending this hidden meaning our knowledge is kindled, then the ignorance in the form of darkness will reduce. Also, the domination by people with demoniacal tendencies of enjoying worldly pleasures and indulging in unrighteous attitudes, over the righteous, will reduce.Why we Celebrate Lakshmi in Deepawali

Goddess Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of wealth. She is worshipped by all households devotes and is associated with the festival of Deepawali when people offer special prayers to her to invite her into their homes. Lakshmi Puja is performed for prosperity, material abundance, and spiritual prosperity. She is worshipped to remove troubles that prevent us from starting a spiritual path or business.

Lakshmi Pujan (Sanskrit: लक्ष्मी पूजा), celebrated on Amavasya (new moon day) of  the Krishna Paksha (Dark fortnight) in the Vikram Samvat, month of Ashwin, on the third day of Tihar and is considered as the main festive day of Deepawali.

The most auspicious time for the puja is decided when “Amavasya tithi” prevails during “Pradosh Kaal” or the evening time. On this day, the sun enters its second course and passes the constellation Libra, which is represented by the balance or scale. Hence, the sign of Libra is believed to suggest the balancing and closing of account books.

Hanuman- The Pranic Human Force

||Om SriGuru Charan Kamalebheyo Naman||
I bow at the lotus feet of my Master SriGuru Mahavatar Babaji,
Since in the modernized Bharat, we have lost all our ancient knowledge and we do not know what we do not understand today, why are we doing any recitation of any text or what does that text mean in its absolute terms. Such one text is “Hanuman Chalisa”; which many and many had been doing it over & over but yet do not realize the true meaning of it.
Here, in the V-log, I am just explaining few facts about Hanuman and the Chalisa. Let’s firstly look into the word- Hanumat (हनुमत) with the phonetics in devnagri script- “ह”,”न”,”म”,”त”.
“ह” represents the “fire”, which is the seed syllable for Sun,
“न” denotes to “by” (द्वारा),
“म” represents the ” waking state” (जागृत अवस्था), (as mentioned in Manudkya Upanishad about M-kaara)
“त” denotes to “to” (से),
So, Hanumat means the “fiery energy by which one can reach to the waking state”.

 

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});



“Chalisa” conveys “the discipline that the seeker has to follow for 40 days to reach onto that state.” Now, in the text “Hanuman Chalisa” itself there are numerous hints which speak about this principle of energy and the discipline.
Hanuman represent to the fiery prana energy inside each one of you which is super powerful (महावीर), glorified (बिक्रम), strongly weaponed body (बजरंगी- वज्र- अंगी), which removes the ignorance (कुमती निवार) and it companions with the intelligent (सुमती के संगी). It’s glory is represented as golden halo (कंचन वरन) and beautifully clothed (विराज सुबेसा). Bhakta Tulasidas has coded it so beautifully & intelligently that readers will continue reading it with it’s literal meanings whereas it completely allegorically.
Hanuman Chalisa also laid down to the discipline for the seekers and practitioners, as it mentions:
 
और देवता चित्त न धरई, हनुमत से हि सर्व सुख करई
do not let any other deity to reside in your conscious,
Hanumat alone shall bestow all prosperities. 
 
It refers that only the prana should be practised and nothing else is required. And, that requires the basic discipline in life to be put in place. First work upon the body, then breath and then the sadhna of the prana. Then, there is one more similarity that the word Hanuman relate to Human too, which signify the powers and qualities of an evolved being which we here are mentioning as “Hanuman- The Pranic Human Force.”
Hope this helps you develop an absolute vision to understand the text.

How to worship Goddess laxmi, Kubera, Yamdeepak and Dhanvantri in Dhanteras 2018

 

As per wiki, Dhana Trayodashi (or Dhanteras or धनत्रयोदशी) is the first day of the Indian Diwali and Nepalese Tihar Festival. The festival is known as “Dhanatrayodashi” or “Dhanvantari Trayodashi”. It is celebrated on the thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in the Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar month of Kartika month.

This day is also celebrated for Lord Dhanvantari (Deity who rules Ayurveda) and worshipped on the occasion of Trayodashi, usually, this day is called Dhanvantari Trayodashi. Dhanvantari is considered to be the teacher of all physicians and the originator of Ayurveda.

‘Dhan’ means wealth and ‘Teras’ refers to the thirteenth day of the moon cycle on the thirteenth day of Kartika Krishna Paksha. On this auspicious day, Goddess LaxmiLord Dhanvantri and Lord Kuber are worshipped in sthir Lagna at evening time. Traditionally it is considered as to be good in Hindus to buy gold and silver jewelry or utensils as they are karka for Vaibhav.

If we See background history from our Vedic Scriptures  (Puranas), root of the Dhanteras belong from the Samudra Manthan, It is believed that on this day, Goddess Lakshmi emerged from the ocean along with other precious treasures and pieces of jewelry, during Churning of Ocean. According to the Bhagwat and Visnu Purana, Lord Dhanvantri also emerged from the sea with the pot of Amrit for distributing it to the Devtas. Lord Dhanvantri is another form of Lord Vishnu and also worshipped on this day along with Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kuber for the good health, wealth, and wellbeing.

Below are Detailed info on Dhanteras Puja Vidhi and Muharat :

 

Pradosh Kaal Muhurat

Dhanteras Puja on Monday, November 5, 2018

Dhanteras Puja Muhurta – 18:06 to 20:01

Duration – 01 Hour 56 Mins

Pradosh Kaal – 17:29 to 20:07

According to Drikpanchang, Lakshmi Poojan on Dhanteras should be done during Pradosh Kaal after sunset and approximately lasts for 2 hours and 24 minutes when Sthir Lagna (Fixed Signs) prevails, Sthir means fixed, not movable as in Sthira Lagna goddess Laxmi sits and stays in your home.Today Sthira Lagna will rise after 18:05:38 (Taurus Lagna), hence this time is the best for Dhanteras Pujan for Laxmi poojan.

 

( Source : https://www.drikpanchang.com/tables/lagna.html?date=05/11/2018 )

But before that there we need to light 13 or 1 lamp in the house to keep away the evil and let the good light come in in the form of good health and wellbeing with Goddes Laxmi and Dhanvantri.

Dhanteras has nothing to do with the wealth,  but It is more about the health and well being of the house, what happens when “Ashta Laxmi” comes in the house with lord Dhanvantri which brings good health, well being and overall happiness for the whole family members. ‘

It Has a deep story, as for why we need to lit the lamp on Dhanteras for Lord Yama;

This is explained in the story of the prince and his new wife, which is said to have happened on this day centuries ago. The prince, his new wife and the serpent The 16-year-old son of King Hima was predicted to die on his fourth day of marriage – on Dhanteras – by snake bite. 

But instead of dying, on that date his wife decided she would not let him go to sleep. She laid out all her ornaments as well as pots of gold and silver coins at the entrance to their bedroom and lit lots of lamps. 

She told him stories and sang songs to keep him awake that night and when the God of Death, Yama, came disguised as a snake, he was so dazzled by the glittering precious metals and lights that he climbed on top of the coins and listened to the stories instead. By morning, rather than killing the prince, he slithered away silently because he had missed the chance. The prince was saved by his bride after she baffled the snake with her wealth.”

That’s why in Dhanteras first it involves worshipping of Lord Yama with Deep Daan on this day for the protection of one’s family members and loved ones. After worshipping Lord Yama one should Lit 13 earthen Lamps on the honour of Lord Yama in a southern direction with sesame oil outside the house in evening time in pradosh kaal.

Lakshmi- The Celestial Goddess

 

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

||Om SriGuruCharanKamalebheyo Namah||
“I bow down at the lotus feet of my master SriGuru Mahavatar”

Pranam to all the beautiful seekers,

 

I’m happy to write this V-log for you and as you are reading this- I’m sure you are one of the sincere seekers who has reached here to this revelation. Let’s begin.
Since Deepawali is around the corner, so, Today I’ve chosen to write on “Lakshmi” which is misinterpreted through various media channels or by the priests and nonetheless by con-practitioners who con people by selling remedies or rituals.
The most important aspect of any understanding that we want to develop is the knowledge which is majorly lost in today’s time because of which we lost our all understanding of various facts and we are unable to realise the truths behind. The basis of our ancient scientific knowledge is Devnagri (lipi) text script through which the Shruti (sound vibration) is given a form to understand at the level of conscious.
Now, Let’s understand what does the word Lakshmi means. Lakshmi considered to be the Goddess of wealth & fortune, the sustainer energy of the universe, the one who emerged out from the kshir sagar during the churning by devatas and asuras, she who accepted Lord Vishnu as her eternal consort. Lakshmi (लक्ष्मी) comes from the sanskrit word “लक्ष्यामि”- “the giver of direction for goal”; लक्ष्य को आयाम देने वाली.  Now, the word “लक्ष्य” denotes to the destroying (क्षय) of “ल” means the old archetype, the core limiting behavior which is the pure trait of “Muladhar center” that is why the seed syllable “लं” (lam) is chanted to raise the energy from the base as the anuswara (the dot used above the vyanjan ल) is the connecting sound which is the fourth quarter vibration of ॐ called as “im”representing the “state of liberation”.

 

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, Lakshmi is the energy which is worshipped by the ones who have destroyed their old primitive limiting beliefs, habits & desires and have one universal goal to evolve from the base to know who they are and want to move forward on the path in a sustained pace. And, a seeker of truth must have sustaining discipline and efforts to reach the final goal of evolution. That is why Lakshmi accepted the sustainer Lord Vishnu to be her eternal consort.
Lakshmi Sukt mentions “पद्मिनि पद्मपत्रे पद्मप्रिये”- She sits on Lotus flower which represents Her evolving out of lotus signifying the rise of energy from the Muladhar and the only goal remains is to know “Who am I?” which arises from its counterpart question- “I dont know who am I?”. That’s why the Goddess can not be approached with a mind which knows everything.  But since, in the delusioned world where money is the only goal behind every action, every desire, every learning; that’s is why the worldly people started to worship Lakshmi as the Goddess of money not as wealth, which is the biggest disbelief. Because, money which is the medium of exchange of resources is a temporary and time bound whereas wealth is “what remains forever and travels with you as accumulation”; that is how money and wealth are different. And, the most dreadful thing is- we lose wealth to grab money, losing all values, truthfulness and accept treachery, hatred and folly in order to just grab money.
Now, Just ask yourself-
1. Do you think, Goddess can be worshipped by anyone who is not interested in the wealth that She is offering and can ask for something which She has no relation with??
as She is offering ultimate wealth and you ask for money which she is not even printing anyway!!
2. Do you think, any worship or recitation or prayer performed by a treacherous can raise the ultimate wealth?
-as She betows Her blessings upon a disciplined truthful seeker and after all cheating in the workplace only paper money might be collected but wealth can never be!!
I hope this will make you think on these questions while you perform Lakshmi worship this year. I will share more on this in the upcoming posts as more is coming up on “Deepawali” in the next V-log.
Do write your comments or questions below.
Guru’s Grace Be Upon You!!
Love,

Vedic Etymology- Dive Deep Into The Absolute Knowledge

Understanding Vedic Etymology
!! Om Sri Guru Charan Kamale bheyo Namah !!

Let me share with you a glimpse of the power of “Vedic Etymology” which will certainly put you in amaze.

From past many years, I had been emphasizing upon “niruktam”- the vedic etymology which helps us understand the deeper, absolute and true meanings of words. Every letter in the Devnagri varnmala (alphabetic system) has a meaning and it represents a system inside you. The vowels (swara) and consonants (vyanjan) has a meaning leading to a deeper understanding of the whole of creation and forms the connecting links between the creations that we see in this world.

Let me explain to you with the help of my own name. the word Vishal, विशाल, which means in a simple language as very big or huge or expansive.

विश in devnagri means the lotus stem which in sanskrit is written as “बिस”, and आल is आ (through, से) + आलय (abode) which means abode. So, we can join the meanings and understand that “Vishal” means “to the abode through lotus stem”, which is also explained beautifully in Lalita Sahastranam as “mahashaktih kundalini bistantutaniyasi”, verse 92. This signify the expansive form of the energy which is multi-dimensional with its expansion in each individual and the creation.

Now, let’s take another word. Same way the word विश्व is designed:

विश + अव, अव means to come down (उतरना); विश्व means which has come down from the lotus stem. This too is beautifully pictured in a puranic image where Brahma, the Lord of creation is attached at the other end of lotus stem originating from Lord Vishnu.This way you can reach more deeper into finding the lost knowledge.

Note: You can also find a video from 2016 done on my fb account explaining how devanagri consonants represent the vertebral column and relate to our breath

Who is Shiva ? Understanding Importance of the Lord Shiva based on the view of Swami Sivananda


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We comprehend (realise) that Celebrated Supreme Being (Purusha), and meditate upon that Great God, Mahadeva; may that Rudra impel us to do so. This is the Rudra Gayatri Mantra.

(Shiva Gayatri Mantra)

Who is Shiva? 



In Me the universe had its origin,
In Me alone the whole subsists;
In Me it is lost—Siva,
The Timeless, it is I Myself,
Sivoham! Sivoham! Sivoham!
” Salutations to Lord Siva, the vanquisher of Cupid, the bestower of eternal bliss and immortality, the protector of all beings, destroyer of sins, the Lord of the gods, who wears a
tiger-skin, the best among objects of worship, through whose matted hair the Ganga flows.

Lord Siva is the pure, changeless, attributeless, all-pervading transcendental consciousness.

He is the inactive (Nishkriya) Purusha. Prakriti is dancing on His breast and performing the creative, preservative and destructive processes.”
 (By Swami Sivananda)

View of the Swami Sivananda on Lord Shiva from His Book ( Lord Shiv and His worship)




 By Swami Sivananda

” When there is neither light nor darkness, neither form nor energy, neither sound nor matter, when there is no manifestation of phenomenal existence, Siva alone exists in Himself.He is timeless, spaceless, birthless, deathless, decayless. He is beyond the pairs of opposites. He is the Impersonal Absolute Brahman. He is untouched by pleasure and pain, good and evil. He cannot be seen by the eyes but He can be realised within the heart through devotion and meditation.”

” Siva is also the Supreme personal God when He is identified with His power. He is then omnipotent, omniscient active God. He dances in supreme joy and creates, sustains and destroys with the rhythm of His dancing movements.
He destroys all bondage, limitation and sorrow of His devotees. He is the giver of Mukti or the final emancipation. He is the universal Self. He is the true Self of all creatures. He is the dweller in the cremation-ground, in the region of the dead, those who are dead to the world.
The Jivas and the world originate from Him, exist in Him, are sustained and rejected by Him and are ultimately merged in Him. He is the support, source and substratum of the whole world. He
is an embodiment of Truth, Beauty, Goodness and Bliss. He is Satyam, Sivam, Subham, Sundaram, Kantam.
He is the God of gods, Deva-Deva. He is the Great Deity—Mahadeva. He is the God of manes (Prajapati). He is the most awe-inspiring and terrifying deity, Rudra, with Trisul or trident in
His hand. He is the most easily pleased (Asutosha). He is accessible to all. Even the untouchable Chandalas and the illiterate rustics can approach Him.
He is the source of all knowledge and wisdom. He is an ideal Yogi and Muni. He is the ideal head of an ideal family with Uma as His devoted wife, Lord Subrahmanya, the brave general of
strength and courage, Lord Ganesa, the remover of all obstacles.
The Sadasiva

At the end of Pralaya, the Supreme Lord thinks of re-creation of the world. He is then known by the name Sadasiva. He is the root-cause of creation. From Sadasiva creation begins. In Manusmriti He is called Svayambhu. Sadasiva is unmanifested, He destroys the Tamas caused by Pralaya and shines as the self-resplendent light bringing forth the five great elements, etc., into being.

The Siva Purana says that Siva is beyond both Prakriti and Purusha. Siva is Mahesvara. He is the witness, well-wisher and nourisher of all beings. 
The Gita says: 

‘Upadrashtanumanta cha bharta bhokta mahesvarah’.

Mahesvara conducts the work of creation according to His will and pleasure. 

The Sruti says,

‘Mayam tu prakritim viddhi mayinam tu mahesvaram’. 

Know Prakriti to be Maya and Mahesvara to be the wielder of Maya or Prakriti. 

The Sakti of Siva works in two different ways. Mula Prakriti
and Daivi Prakriti. Mula Prakriti is Apara Prakriti from which the five elements and other visible objects and the Antahkarana are evolved. Para Prakriti is Chaitanya Sakti which converts the Apara
Prakriti and gives name and form to it. Apara Prakriti is Avidya and Para Prakriti is Vidya. 
The controller and dispenser of these two Prakritis is Lord Siva.
Siva is distinct from Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra.

Lord Siva is the Lord of innumerable crores of Brahmandas or worlds. Isvara united with Maya gives rise to Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra out of Rajas, Sattva and Tamo Gunas respectively, under the command of Lord Siva. Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra are the trinities of the world.

There is no difference among the trinities, Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra. By the command of Mahesvara these three do the creative, preservative and destructive duties of the world. The work of
all the three deities is done conjointly. They all have one view and one definite purpose in creating, preserving and destroying the visible universe of names and forms. He who regards the three deities as distinct and different, Siva Purana says, is undoubtedly a devil or evil spirit.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The Lord who is beyond the three Gunas, Mahesvara, has four aspects: Brahma, Kala, Rudra and Vishnu. Siva is the support for all the four. He is the substratum for Sakti also. Siva is distinct from the Rudra included in the trinities. Rudra is really one though according to the different functions He is considered to have eleven different forms.

The first face of Siva does Krida or play, the second does penance, the third destroys or dissolves the world, the fourth protects the people and the fifth, being knowledge, fully covers the
entire universe by its power. 

He is Isana the creator and promoter of all beings, from within.The first form of Siva is the enjoyer of Prakriti as Kshetrajna Purusha. The second is Tatpurusha resting in Sattva-guna, rooted in Bhogya-Prakriti, the Prakriti-enjoyed. The third is Ghora rooted in the eightfold Buddhi like Dharma, etc.

The fourth is Vamadeva rooted in Ahankara and the fifth is Sadyojata, the presiding deity of the mind. The eight forms of Siva are Sarva, Bhava, Rudra, Ugra, Bhima, Pasupati, Isana and Mahadeva, rooted respectively in earth, water, fire, air, ether, Kshetrajna, sun and moon.”

Sri Navagraha Stotra with meaning to propitiate nine planets daily

This stotra is written by Shri Ved Vyas Rishi and consists of nine hyms or mantras of nine planets. this stotra is best suggested to get freedom from all sort of troubles and difficulties and get abundant pleasures, wealth and become prosperous, sound and have good health in life. The devotee should recite this stotra daily with utter faith and devotion to get maximum benefits from stotra. As this stotra directly goes to graha devta so faith is most important as these nine planets or ‘Navagraha’ have maximum effect on mental as well as on physical aspect of human life. 

The vibration of these 9 planets radaites maximum sound and light energy around us and when we sync our body vibrations according to these 9 planets we can have maximum benefits from these celestial bodies. They play an important role in all the life activities i.e physical, mental, emotional and health of life of any individual.

Narad says Datta is a destroyer of all diseases, sins, all our enemies. This stotra is to be recited with devotion, concentration and faith.

The story of Guru Dattatreya


GURU DATTATREYA is the son of ATRI rishi & mother anusaya. ATRI rishi was born of Lord BRAHMA. He practised severe penance and attained Brahma Jnana. He married anusaya, the daughter of Karjam Prajapati. anusaya as the name indicates, was devoid of the taint of envy. She was a PATIVRATA, an embodiment of chastity who worshipped and considered her husband as GOD.

Her fame and glory spread far and wide, all over the three worlds. Knowing her greatness Indra and other deities feared that they may lose their supremacy and that she may snatch their celestial treasures from their hand. They approached the 3 GOD’s Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, described the greatness of Anusaya to them and entreated them to arrest the ever increasing powers and glory of Anusaya by somehow causing a blemish on her chastity.

They demanded that food be served to them immediately as they could not wait till the return of ATRI rishi.

Anusaya invited them to the dining centre and after offering the proper seats was about to serve food. At that critical juncture, the guests made an unusual request. They said, “Oh! Pious one, we desire that you should disrobe yourself and serve food without wearing any garment. Then only will we eat the food served to us . Please tell us if this is not possible, we will go elsewhere”. Anusaya thought for a while, “ If I refuse to comply with the condition laid down by these guests they may go away without eating food. Atithis(unexpected guests) cannot be turned away, they are an aspect of GOD. My mind is pure. The spiritual strength of my husband will surely save me”. She declared her willingness to serve food as desired by them and went into the kitchen.

She meditated and prayed at the holy feet of her husband. With a motherly feeling towards the guests she went naked into the dining place to start serving the food but, Lo! and behold! By that time the 3 guests were transformed into infants. She fondled the infants and at the sight of these hungry infants lactation welled up from her bosom. She happily breast fed them. When Atri rishi returned home , to his amazement, he found Anusaya fondling 3 new born babies. Anusaya rose and offered the 3 babies at the feet of her husband.

Atri rishi went into a trance and recognized the trio as Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. He reverentially greeted them with folded hands. After witnessing the devotion and purity of couple the 3 infants assumed their real forms and requested the couple to ask for a boon. Atri rishi directed Anusaya to seek a boon from the trinity. Anusaya replied that he might ask them to actually become their children. The trinity granted the boon and left for their celestial abodes in their subtle form and joined their consorts.

Vishnu took the form of Sri Datta, Brahma took the form of Chandra and Mahesh took the form of Durvasa. After some time Chandra and Durvasa sought the permission of Anusaya to leave. Durvasa expressed his desire to go on a pilgrimage and do penance. Chandra put forth his request, “ I will reside in the region of the moon. Therefore you can see me daily. Don’t grieve at our departure. Sri Datta combines in himself the divine qualities of 3 of us.

He will always be with you. Sri Datta is Lord Vishnu himself. Vishnu pervades the whole universe, so you will never experience separation from him. He will live according to your heart’s desire. so permit me to leave”. Taking the permission of their mother Chandra reached the region of the moon and Durvasa left on a long pilgrimage. Sri Datta remained in the hermitage of Anusaya.

The 3 GOD’s agreed to do it. They transformed themselves into mendicants and approached the hermitage of ATRI rishi. They begged for alms. At that time, ATRI rishi had gone to the river to offer his daily ablutions. Anusaya welcomed them with respect and offered them seats. She washed their feet and worshipped them. The guests became impatient and feigned great hunger.

Here is Dattatreya Rog Nashak Stotra, recite this stotra 11 times a day for 40 days daily and after that once for next 1 year. This is a miraculous stotra for curing difficult diseases and illness.Those having weak  and afflicted jupiter can also recite this stotra daily for 40 days or can recite on every thursday. 

Dattatreya stotram With English translation to cure any Diseases, sins and enemies

Narad Krit Shiri Dattatreya stotram from Padma Puran with English transaltion


Dattatreya Stotra is dedicated to Hindu God Datta, a joint incarnation of Hindu deities Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Devotees worship Dathathreya as a god in the form of a combination of the great trinity consisting of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. He took this form due to Anasuya, the wife of sage Athri. 
One story tells that Narada poisoned the minds of Saraswathi, Lakshmi and Parvathy and told them that Anasuya is much greater than them. Incensed by this they sent their lords to Anasuya, who went and requested her to give them alms without wearing any clothes, She made them into babies and combined them into one. This God was Dathathreya. 
Another story tells of the trinity being forced to approach Anasuya to save the world from the curse of Nalayani. She did this but asked them to become her babies. These babies were Dathathreya (Vishnu), Durvasa (Shiva) and Chandra(Brahma). Once in a hurry when all these babies were crying together, she took them together and they became one. 
There is a small sect of Hindus called Datha panthis in Karnalaka and Maharashtra who worship only Lord Dathathreya. He is picturised as doing meditation along with four Vedas in the form dogs following him.Praying to Dattatreya by chanting this stotra will help to destroy all the enemies, get rid of your sins and will be blessed with great knowledge.
Below is the English lyrics of Dattatreya Stotram  translated by Sri PR Ramachander.

The Advance Age of Machines – The Kaliyuga, Danger of extreme futurism when mankind will decay



What Murphy Law Says?


Murphy’s law is a popular adage that states that “things will go wrong in any given situation, if you give them a chance,” or more commonly, “whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.” A number of variants on the rule have been formulated, as have several corollaries.

A time will come when Mankind will decay like what Murphy law  has explained, sooner or later that is destined to come might be after 1000  or 10,000 years later or much sooner, that I don’t know, but it will come with much havoc advancement, Everything that grows always falls or fades that’s the natural law.

So, same is about technology and extreme futurism, it also has drawback may be we cant see right now but it will come with human degradation.

This advancement of Mankind might be waiting for its degradation and destruction period, as it has been seen in Every 1000 years of duration there has been a period of a complete change in the era and the underlying situation is hard to explain.This, we had already seen from the Year 900 AD to 21st century till now,  how India got decay in his moral and spiritual values and senses. 

More can be yet to come in the year 3000, we don’t know about it, as Kaal (Time )  is that mysterious system of higher divine only sages of higher senses can able to understand its root. 

It has been said by the Krishna itself, I will be there on the earth until 10,000 years of Kaliyug to maintain, uphold Dharma and Spirituality for kind and devotees.

There have been many More Such predictions and futuristic quotes have been explained in Vedic scriptures (i.e Puranas and Upanishads) for kaliyug.

Now, first let us understand what is Kaliyuga?


As Per Wikipedia, Kali Yuga (Devanāgarī: कलियुग [kəli juɡə], lit. “age of Kali”, or “age of vice”) is the last of the four stages (or ages or yugas) the world goes through as part of a ‘cycle of yugas’ (i.e. Mahayuga) described in the Sanskrit scriptures. The other ages are called Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, and Dvapara Yuga.Kali Yuga is associated with the demon Kali (not to be confused with the goddess Kālī). The “Kali” of Kali Yuga means “strife”, “discord”, “quarrel” or “contention”.

 Departure of Krishna 

According to Puranic sources, Krishna’s departure marks the end of Dvapara Yuga and the start of Kali Yuga, which is dated to 17/18 February 3102 BCE.When Krishna was leaving the Mortal world, Host of Siddhas, Pitrs, Gandharvas, Vidya Dharas,  Great Nagas, Charamas, Yakshas, Rakshasas, Kinnaras, Apsaras and Dwijas arrived there to witen the divine departure. Krishna Saw Bramha and other gods and later he shuts his eyes and lost himself in Deep Samadhi and observbed his atman into Brahman.

The Sky Rained Flowers, it erupted with drumrolls of the gods. When Krishna left the world, Dharma, Compassion, Glory and prosperity followed him out of it and then kali yuga entered it wholly.

Meanwhile Soon after Krishna left the earth, the sea swelled in huge tides and drowned that peerless and magical city – Dwarka.only the Mansion in which Krishna had lived remained above water.

Begining of Kaliyuga

View of Surya Siddhanta on Kaliyuga

According to the Surya Siddhanta, Kali Yuga began at midnight (00:00) on 18 February 3102 BCE.This is also considered the date on which Lord Krishna left the earth to return to Vaikuntha. This information is placed at the temple of Bhalka, the place of this incident.

 (Source: Wikipedia, Surya Siddhanta )

View of Aryabhatta on Kaliyuga

According to the astronomer and mathematician Aryabhatta, as mentioned in Wikipedia, the Kali Yuga started in 3102 BCE. He finished his book “Aryabhattiya” in 499 CE, in which he gives the exact year of the beginning of Kali Yuga. He writes that he wrote the book in the “year 3600 of the Kali Age” at the age of 23. As it was the 3600th year of the Kali Age when he was 23 years old, and given that Aryabhatta was born in 476 CE, the beginning of the Kali Yuga would come to (3600 – (476 + 23) + 1 (As only one year elapses between 1 BCE and 1 CE) = ) 3102 BCE.

View of KD Abhyankar on Kaliyuga


According to KD Abhyankar, the starting point of Kaliyuga is an extremely rare planetary alignment, which is depicted in the Mohenjo-Daro seals. Going by this alignment the year 3102 BCE is slightly off. The actual date for this alignment is February 7 of 3104 BCE. There is also sufficient proof to believe that Vrdhha Garga knew of precession at least by 500 BCE. Garga had calculated the rate of precession to within 30% of what the modern scholars estimate.

View of Gaudiya Vashinavs guru’s on Kaliyuga


Most interpreters of Vedic scriptures, as Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami and his recent disciple Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada believe that Earth is currently in Kali Yuga and lasts 432,000 years. 

View of Sri-Yukteswara on Kaliyuga


Other authors, such as Swami Sri Yukteswar and Paramhansa Yogananda,believe that it is now an ascending Dvapara Yuga, indicating levels of cycles within each major Yuga period as each being a development, the smaller cycles within cycles eventually leading to full development of the qualities of the ages. The Kali Yuga is thought by some authors to last 6480 years although other durations have been proposed.

 Srimad Bhagavatam View on Kaliyuga
SB 12.2.31
yadā devarṣayaḥ sapta
maghāsu vicaranti hi
tadā pravṛttas tu kalir
dvādaśābda-śatātmakaḥ

Synonyms: 


yadā — when; deva-ṛṣayaḥ sapta — the seven sages among the demigods; maghāsu — in the lunar mansion Maghā; vicaranti — are traveling; hi — indeed; tadā — then; pravṛttaḥ — begins; tu — and; kaliḥ — the Age of Kali; dvādaśa — twelve; abda-śata — centuries [These twelve hundred years of the demigods equal 432,000 earth years]; ātmakaḥ — consisting of.
Translation: 

When the constellation of the seven sages is passing through the lunar mansion Maghā, the Age of Kali begins. It comprises twelve hundred years of the demigods

Explanation : 
Srimad-Bhagavatam (12.2.31) records Kali-yuga as having begun when the constellation of the seven sages (saptarsi) passed through the lunar mansion of Magha. Hindu astrologers have calculated this to have been 2:27 a.m. on February 18, 3102 BC. This took place some 36 years after Lord Krsna spoke Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna.

View of scholar Bibhu Dev Misra


As per Bibhu Dev Misra, Aryabhatta had calculated the start date of the Kali Yuga on the basis of the information in the Sanskrit astronomical treatise, the Surya Siddhanta, according to which the five “geocentric planets” (i.e. the planets visible to the naked eye) – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn – were aligned to 0° of Aries (near the star Zeta Piscium) at the beginning of the Kali Yuga. He, thus, arrived at the date of 17/18 February, 3102 BC as the starting point of the Kali Yuga. However, modern simulations carried out by Richard Thompson show that on 17/18 February, 3102 BC, the five geocentric planets occupied an arc of roughly 42° in the sky and were scattered over three zodiacal signs – Aries, Pisces, and Aquarius. This cannot be considered as a conjunction by any means. Far more spectacular ‘alignment’ of planets has occurred in the preceding and succeeding centuries. In other words, the conjunction of geocentric planets at 0° of Aries that was supposedly targeted by Aryabhatta did not take place in 3102 BC.

As per the Author, The original Yuga Cycle doctrine appears to have been very simple: A Yuga Cycle duration of 12,000 years, with each Yuga lasting for 3,000 years. This cycle is encoded in the “Saptarsi Calendar” which has been used in India for thousands of years. It was used extensively during the Maurya period in the 4th century BC and is still in use in some parts of India. The term “Saptarsi” refers to the “Seven Rishis” or the “Seven Sages” representing the seven stars of the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major). They are regarded as the enlightened rishis who appear at the beginning of every Yuga to spread the laws of civilization. The Saptarsi Calendar used in India had a cycle of 2,700 years; it is said that the Great Bear constellation stays for 100 years in each of the 27 “Nakshatras” (lunar asterisms) which adds up to a cycle of 2,700 years.The 2,700 year cycle was also referred to as a “Saptarsi Era” or a “Saptarsi Yuga”.

Saptarsi Calendar began from 3076 BC and Dr. Subhash Kak points out, “the new count that goes back to 3076 BC was started later to make it as close to the start of the Kali era as possible”. In 3076 BC, the Great Bear was in the “Magha” nakshatra (lunar asterism) as mentioned by Varahamihira in Brihat-Samhita (Brs. 13-3). But Subhash Kak points out that, “By the time of the Greeks, the nakshatras were listed starting with Asvin (Surya Siddhanta 8.9). As Magha is the tenth nakshatra in a count beginning with Asvin, one needs to add 900 years to find the epoch for the beginning of the cycle. This takes one to 3976 BC. One more complete Saptarsi Cycle of 2,700 years before that brings us to 6676 BC.” Since the Dwapara Yuga immediately precedes the Kali Yuga, we are once again led to the conclusion that the Saptarsi Calendar with a start date of 6676 BC was counting time from the Dwapara Yuga.


(Source: The end of the Kali Yuga in 2025: Unraveling the mysteries of the Yuga Cycle by Bibhu Dev Misra, Complete Article Link: https://grahamhancock.com/dmisrab6/ )
Conclusion: from All above we can confirm that Exact details of Kaliyuga conjunction point is still unknown and Yuga cycle still needs lots of thorough research and studies but it is assumed to be say that Kaliyuga was started around 3000 BC and exact date and time could be in ambiguity.

Hopefully, soon we will able to find out the exact conjunction point of the beginning of kalyiuga.

What are the Symptoms of Kali-yuga
There has been plenty of Reasoning and explanation given in Brahama Vivstra Puran and Bhagwad Puraan in detailed regarding what will happen to Kaliyug in later part. 

Below are some of the points I have observed based on my learning, Intuition and transcendental observation which I had observed from many of Hindu scriptures.

That Day will come soon when men and women fertility will become zero at the point of extreme globalization and when karmic actions in real life will fall and it will become zero.Sooner or later there will be degradation of Religious up-liftment in ideas of spirituality and Advancement.


The mind will develop more and more in higher mundane values, Material will rule over mind and we will stop realizing the real values of relations sooner or later. we will forget to realize who will be our father, Mother or husband or kids values to us and what they will be matter in our life. Differentiation of relations will be based only on Material and mundane nature. People will have multiple relations and will make relations with one and another just to satisfy their greed, desire and lusts. There will be no multiple religions though there will be a mixed form of religion without any religious ground.

Men will be busy in Advance thinking and Women will be busy in a complete makeover of their Mind, Body and Soul only for mundane values or practical outlooks.

The relational value will degrade soon, A child won’t remain as a child he will be only a formality soon and family life will split up like a need for change.

Virtual gratification of senses will be the first choice of enjoyment. Phones, Media and Computerization will sooner become a danger mark for mankind. Mankind will soon leave the idea of Nature.Nature will remain only for the idea of Resources and need only.That would be the advanced age of Nature when Men and women will travel like Boeing jet from India to the US within flicks of seconds.

Inter- Planetarium visit will become like Fun and enjoyment soon at that age. Man will take Interstellar travel to seek for New civilization and search for new life.I don’t know what they will achieve at that age.A man will itself become like an Alien to other mankind. Mankind will suffer because of own mistakes.Crops will become dry and lands will be out of Resources and heat will remain for more than Seasons. Seasons will no longer be like normal.Nature will cry for reasons why he let the man exploit it.

That would be that advanced age and time when man and women will unleash extreme mental energy from mind to get work done. the brain will be so much developed at that time that even you won’t able to think how and why God has made and gifted this body to you to get accomplish your karmas of life.why physical works would be so much important you will soon forget at that age. that age would be advance space age when you forget your body, your physical needs, only thing would be remembered would be how to ignore physical tasks and why those tasks are important.

That’s the problem of too much futuristic thinking – the advanced age of Rahu when you will live only in your virtual reality. that would be days when the height of men and women will reduce to an extreme extent like a short alien.

The body will become lean, brain size will increase and biggest irony would be both men and women won’t able to procreate their child and kids.Human will develop Machine to raise babies in machine care. body chakras won’t able to work like in a natural way or they become too many hyper actives and body will experience too many drastic changes but Brian will unleash its extreme energy to understand nature and it’s processing, a man will not only succeed only in manipulating with bodies he will do changes with nature too.

Baby will be born either in the machine or taken care by the machine itself – the age would be advanced age of Rahu the mega mind machine age.
As Per Scriptures, When the Age of Kali will progress, all good qualities of men will diminish and all impure qualities increase. Atheistic systems of so-called religion become predominant, replacing the codes of Vedic law. The kings become just like highway bandits, the people, in general, become dedicated to low occupations, and all the social classes become just like śūdras. All cows become like goats, all spiritual hermitages become like materialistic homes, and family ties extend no further than the immediate relationship of marriage.

When the Age of Kali has almost ended, the Supreme Personality of Godhead will incarnate. He will appear in the village Śambhala, in the home of the exalted brāhmaṇa Viṣṇuyaśā, and will take the name Kalki. He will mount His horse Devadatta and, taking His sword in hand, will roam about the earth killing millions of bandits in the guise of kings. 

Then the signs of the next Satya-yuga will begin to appear. 

When the moon, sun and the planet Bṛhaspati enter simultaneously into one constellation and conjoin in the lunar mansion Puṣyā, Satya-yuga will begin. 

In the order of Satya, Tretā, Dvāpara and Kali, the cycle of four ages rotates in the society of living entities in this universe.


Welcome to Kali (Machines) -yuga (Era) – The Advance Age of Machine, Iron and Technology,  Drastic Future is waiting for you.

Let’s Decode bit by bit How Kaliyug will progress based on our Vedic Scriptures as mentioned in Bhagwat and other Puranas.

“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.”

Translation and purport explained by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda

TRANSLATION



By the time the age of Kali ends, the bodies of all creatures will be greatly reduced in size, and the religious principles of followers of varṇāśrama will be ruined. 

The path of the Vedas will be completely forgotten in human society, and so-called religion will be mostly atheistic. 
The kings will mostly be thieves, the occupations of men will be stealing, lying and needless violence, and all the social classes will be reduced to the lowest level of śūdras.
Cows will be like goats, spiritual hermitages will be no different from mundane houses, and family ties will extend no further than the immediate bonds of marriage.


Most plants and herbs will be tiny, and all trees will appear like dwarf śamī trees. 
Clouds will be full of lightning, homes will be devoid of piety, and all human beings will have become like asses. At that time, the Supreme Personality of Godhead will appear on the earth. 
Acting with the power of pure spiritual goodness, He will rescue eternal religion.

Lord Kalki, the Lord of the universe, will mount His swift horse Devadatta and, sword in hand, travel over the earth exhibiting His eight mystic opulences and eight special qualities of Godhead. Displaying His unequaled effulgence and riding with great speed, He will kill by the millions those thieves who have dared dress as kings.

There is Few More addition in the list:

  • Rulers will confiscate property and use it badly, They will cease to protect the people. 
  • Base men who have gained a certain amount of learning (without having the virtues necessary for its use) will be esteemed as sages. 
  • The state leaders will no longer protect the people but, through taxes, will appropriate all wealth. 
  • There will be many displaced persons, wandering from one country to another.  
  • Predatory animals will be more violent. 
  • People will prefer to choose false ideas. 
  • No one will be able to trust anyone else. 
  • People will be envious. 
  • There will be many children born whose life expectancy is no more than 16 years. 
  • People suffering from hunger and fear will take refuge in “underground shelters.”  
  • The god of clouds will be inconsistent in the distribution of the rains.  
  • Water will be lacking.There will be many beggars and unemployed people. 
  • Everyone will use hard and vulgar language. Men will devote themselves to earning money; the richest will hold power.
Further, it has Been explained in Brahma Puraan abo
ut the Symptoms of Kaliyug:


According to Brahma and Vishnu Puranas, the sanctity of dharma and karma would reduce with each yuga and the turn of events to mark the end mankind would be triggered by humans, themselves.
It is explained that Kaliyuga is the last era; hence, whatever rewards or punishments we deserve based on our Karma, we’ll have to serve here in this era. 

And, when this era will come to end, we’ll surely find these shocking things happening.Towards the end of Kaliyuga, the maximum lifespan for humans would be reduced to 12 years of age and their body will shrink up to 4 inches.

It is mentioned in Brahma Purana that Kaliyuga would last for only 10 thousand years; during which it would witness the downfall of the human race. Half of the world will be plagued with illness and the other half would be engaged in combat. To end this, Vishnu will take the Kalki avatar.


Every water resource would begin to dry up mysteriously and there’ll be complete disregard and no devotion left towards, parents, family, children, and guru.Paper money will be the cause of destruction among humans and people involved in the solicitation of funds will not hesitate to kill.


5 thousand years into Kaliyuga and the holy river Ganges will change its course and would start flowing backward and return to Vaikunth Dham, her holy abode. 10 years into Kaliyua, every God, and Goddess present on earth would leave for heavenly abode, to never return. This would mark the immediate end of religious faith among humans.
Just before the impending annihilation, the earth would stop procreating, in terms of flowers, fruits, and foods. No amount of technology or prayers would make the soil fertile again, bees would stop collecting nectar, silkworm would stop producing silk, and cows would stop milking. 


Last 20 years of Kaliyuga, would be seeing the heights of brutalism amid humans. The money would overpower intellect, strength would overpower humanity. Children born through one mother would become the cause of each other’s destruction.

When terrorism would be at its peak, Vishnu would be born as Kalki; he’ll be taller than any human ever seen, would be stronger than 1000 pair of elephants. His temper would be blessed by Shiva’s Rudra avatar. And, he will take only three days to completely devoid Earth of any living presence.



What would be End  of Kaliyug:



*.The last 5 years of Kaliyuga, Earth will bear torrential rains that would immerse all the dead and every inch of land. 

*.The last day of Kaliyuga would see the longest night, after which 12 Suns would arise and would continue to shine for years until every drop of water is soaked. 

More Shalokas from Brahma Vaivarta Purana on kaliyug golden age

There has been lot more written on Brahma Vaivarta Purana on Kalyug progression.

Here are the 10 verse taken from the Brahma-vaivarta Purana that were spoken by Lord Krishna to Mother Ganga just before the beginning of Kali yug.

Within this 432,000 year period, there is a period of 10,000 years that will be a golden age commence with the birth of Mahaprabhu.

That golden age is being described below by Lord Sri Krishna. 

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In the text Brahma-yamala, the Supreme Personality of Godhead declares as :

Athavaham dhara-dhamnibhutva mad-bhakta-rupa-dhakmayayam ca bhaviryamikalau sankirtanagame




Explanation: 


“Sometimes I personally appear on the surface of the world in the garb of a devotee. Specifically, I appear as the son of Saci in Kali-yuga to start the sankirtana movement.”

In Brahma-vibhāga, of the Tṛtīya-khāṇḍa in the Śrī Atharva-Veda, Text 7, it has been explained as :

Atharva-veda-purura-bodiny-Upanisadisaptame gaura-varna-virnor ity anena sva-saktya caikyametya prante pratar avatirya saha svaih sva-manum sikrayati.


Explanation: 


In the Atharva-veda Purura-bodini Upanisad it is said: “In the seventh manvantara, in the beginning of the Kali-yuga, the Supreme Personality of Godhead will, accompanied by His own associates, descend in a golden form to the earth. He will teach the chanting of His own holy names.”

Text 8:
ito’haṁ kṛta-sannyāso’vatariṣyāmi saguṇo nirvedo niṣkāmo bhūgīrvāṇastīra-stho’lakanandāyaḥ kalau catuḥ-sahasrābdopari pancasahasrābhyantaregaura-varṇo dīrghāṅgaḥ sarva-lakṣaṇa-yukta īśvaraprārthitonija-rasāsvādo bhakta-rūpo miśrākhyo vidita-yogaḥ

 Explanation: 

When the demigods prayed to Bhagavān Śrī Kṛṣṇa, requesting Him to incarnate on the Earth, He said, “I will appear on the bank of the Ganges between the fourth and fifth millennia of the age of Kali. My heart having been satisfied by the prayers of the incarnation of Śaṅkara, Śrī Advaita Ācārya, I will manifest Myself as a virtuous and renounced brāhmaṇa sannyāsī, devoid of material desires and possessing all transcendental qualities. At that time, My complexion will be golden, I will be called Miśra and My eyes and arms will be long. With all the symptoms described in Samudrikā of a mahā-puruṣa, I will taste My own sweetness in the form of a devotee. Only qualified persons will know who I am.”

“I will decend in a golden form and teach the chanting of my own holy names”

In the Garuda Purana it is also said:

kaleh prathama-sandhyayamlakrmi-kanto bhaviryatidaru-brahma-samipa-sthahsannyasi gaura-vigrahah


Explanation: 

“In the month of Phalguna, when the star phalguni is conjoined with the full moon, I will appear in a golden form begotten by Jagannatha Misra in Saci-devi’s womb.”

and in the Ananta-samhita:Krsnas caitanya-gaurangogauracandrah saci-sutahprabhur gauro gaura-harirnamani bhakti-dani me

Explanation:  


At this time My names will be: Krsna Caitanya, Gauranga, Gauracandra, Sacisuta, Mahaprabhu, Gaura, and Gaurahari. Chanting these names will bring devotion to Me.”

As Said by the Author of  Salooba  “

It was already  predicted in advance of the advent of 14th century religious reformer Sri Krishna Chaitanya. Even the Manvantara, the Yuga, the millennium, practically the year, the actual month and the astronomical conjunction on the day of his birth were accurately predicted thousands of years earlier in Bramha Puraanas. Even the names of his parents, his physical features, his particular childhood and adult names, the place of birth, the secret nature of his identity, and an accurate description of his religious teachings. Other such verses include the prediction of his associates, the name of his village, and the resulting world-wide effect of his teachings. The physical proof is there that the Atharva Veda and Puranic texts predate the year of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s birth in 1486 in Navadvipa on the Ganges in India.


As, Sri Caitanya is an actual avatar of God ie: Krishna, who incarnates once every thousand divya-yuga cycles, this special age we live in called “Kali-yuga” has also been described as the “Dhanya-Kali-Yuga” by His transcendental associates, in verses such as this:
debera durlabha ratna milā-ilā kari yatnakṛpāya bālā-i laiyā marikailā kali-yuga dhanya prabhu kṛṣṇa-caitanyayaśa gāya dāsa narahari

Explanation:  

“ Lord Gaura-Hari carefully brought with Him rare and precious jewels, jewels even the demigods cannot obtain. The Lord kindly distributed those jewels to everyone. In this way He made the Kali-yuga a glorious and fortunate time. Thus Narahari dasa sings the glories of Lord Krishna Caitanya.”

Different Gaudiya Acharyas have different opionion on the Golden age of the Kaliyuga:

In Kali-yuga, the partial manifestation of Krishna, Sri Narayana, brings the Mahamantra.Another incarnation of Krishna is lord Buddha who is an another avatar in the Kali age, and when godlessness prevails at the very end, Lord Kalki will appears, delivers the Earth from degradation, and re-introduces the Satya Golden Age ( the New Yuga cycle will come after a great churning of the yugas). 
However, once in every day of Brahma, Sri Gauranga is the Yuga-Avatar. He distributes with great fortune (dhanya) the Krishna-Nama sankirtan movement imbibed with Krishna-prema, Radha-dasyam and the highest destination of Goloka-Vrindavan-Navadwipa.
It has been said by some Gaudiya Acaryas that this Golden Age of Sri Caitanya lasts for 10,000 years, others have said 103,500 years, while other “Gaura-Yugas” last for the entire 427,000 remaining years of Kali. 

Even He said, “When I will appear My names will be: Krsna Caitanya, Gauranga, Gauracandra, Sacisuta, Mahaprabhu, Gaura, and Gaurahari”

Sri Caitanya-deva himself also predicted the global effect of his appearance in this kali-yuga, in the Antya-lila (4.126) of the Caitanya Bhagavata.

Sri Caitanya explains: “I have appeared on earth to propagate the congregational chanting of the holy names of God. In this way, I will deliver the sinful material world. Those demons who never before accepted My authority and lordship will weep in joy by chanting My names. I will vigorously distribute devotional service, bhakti, which is sought after even by demigods, sages, and perfected beings, so that even the most abominable sinners will receive it. But those who, intoxicated with education, wealth, family background, and knowledge, criticize and offend My devotees, will be deprived of everything and will never know My true identity.” Then Sri Chaitanya specifically states:

Explanation: 

prthivite ache yadi nagaradi grama

sarvatra pracara hoibe more nama
“I declare that My name will be preached in every town and village on this earth.”

Here are the 10 verse taken from the Brahma-vaivarta Purana that were spoken by Lord Krishna to Mother Ganga just before the beginning of Kali yug.

These texts are taken from the Brahma-vaivarta Purana 4th Khanda or the Krishna Janma Khanda, in Chapter 129. 

Verse 49 is a question by Mother Ganga and verses 50-60 are Krishna’s answer.

Verse 49
bhagarathy uvaca he natha ramanashreshtha yasi golokamuttamam asmakam ka gatishcatra bhavishyati kalau yuge
Translation:

Ganges said: O protector, Supreme enjoyer, on your departure for the perfect abode, Goloka, thereafter what will be my situation in the age of kali?

Verse 50

sri-bhagavan uvaca kaleh pancasahasranivarshani tishtha bhutale papani papino yani tubhyam dasyanti snanatah

 Translation:

The blessed Lord said: On the earth 5,000 years of kali will be sinful and sinners will deposit their sins in you by bathing.

Note :

We have presently passed through just over 5,000 years of Kali yuga. As was predicted by Lord Krishna, this period from the end of the previous age to the present comprising 5,000 years was a period of great degradation and darkness. 

The great and ancient Vedic culture of India was lost and the so-called followers became ritualistic practitioners, interested only in the bodily conception of life. The four pillars of spiritual life, namely truthfulness, austerity, cleanliness, and mercy are practically nonexistent today, even in the so-called holy sites of pilgrimage. The general mass of people have no interest in God, and any remnant of religion they might still follow is simply for the purpose of economic development. In the name of God so many sinful acts are being carried out throughout the world. Killing of innocent animals, intoxication, illicit sex, and gambling have become common and “natural” activities supported by the governments and religions of the world.  


All of these points confirm Lord Krishna’s prediction regarding the first 5,000 years of the Kali yuga.

   Verse 51
Man-mantropasakasparshad bhasmibhutani tatkshanat 
Bhavishyanti darsanacca snanadeva hi jahnavi 

 Translation:

Thereafter by the sight and touch of those who worship me by my mantra, all those sins will be burnt.

Note : 

Lord Krishna has said that for 5,000 years mother Ganga will purify the sinful inhabitants of the earthly planet in the age of Kali. But where will those accumulated sinful reactions go? Therefore Krishna says here that those sinful reactions, accumulated for thousands of years will all be burnt to ashes simply by a moments touch of a pure devotee of the Lord. The word tatksanat indicates that immediately the reactions are destroyed. A moments glimpse of a pure devotee is enough to purify the heart of a sinful man in this age of Kali. Even mother Ganga is blessed and purified by the association of the Lords devotees, so what to speak of fallen souls like ourselves. We must take every opportunity to associate with the Lord’s pure devotees. This is the process of sadhu-sanga, or sat-sanga.  

Through association with the saints, we come in contact directly with the Supreme Lord. If we have such a great fortune to associate with the saintly devotees of the Lord, our heart will be purified of all the sinful reactions accumulated from countless lifetimes. 

In this verse Krishna defines who are those pure devotees: man-mantropasaka, “one who is doing upasana, or worship, of Krishna by performing samayama on Krishna’s mantra.” Krishna says literally “My mantra”, man-mantra. This mantra Krishna is referring to is the esoteric maha-mantra. In preparation for the Golden Age, Krishna has authorized the initiation into the practice of Samyama on His esoteric maha-mantra to quickly establish Krishna Consciousness. Samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra is the ultimate secret for success on the path to Krishna Consciousness.   

The Guru will impart shakti to the mantra when it is given and that shakti makes the mantra active, increasing its power to transform consciousness by 1000%.The basis of samayama is Turiya, from where this technique is applied and finds success.   

Therefore the foundation of all success is to learn Atmavedi Meditation to experience Turiya and then the practice of samayama is successful.   

It should be noted that Krishna does not say mother Ganga will be purified by yogis. Nor does he say she will be purified by jnanis. Nor by rishis, tapasvis, siddhas or a host of other saintly minded men. Krishna says it will be His pure devotees (bhaktas) who perform samayama on His esoteric maha-mantra that will purify mother Ganga and the entire age of Kali. Only samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra is powerful enough to purify this present age of Kali.  

Therefore only the Lord’s devotees have the power to bring about the golden age within Kali yuga.

 Verse 52
Harernamani yatraiva puranani bhavanti hi
Tatra gatva savadhanam abhih sarddham ca shroshyasi

Translation:

There will be samyama on the esoteric maha-mantra and reading of the [Bhagavata] Purana. Reaching such a place, attentively hear.

Note :

Here Lord Krishna describes the activities within the golden age that will purify the Kali yuga. First and foremost is samyama on the esoteric maha-mantra, indicated by the words harernamani. This is further confirmed in the Brihad-naradiya Purana as follows:

harer nama harer nama harer namaiva kevalamkalau nastyeva nastyeva nastyeva gatir anyata

“In the age of Kali there is no other way to achieve the supreme destination of life other than by performing samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra. There is no other way, no other way, no other way.”The second activity that Lord Krishna describes is the reading of the Bhagavata Purana, or Srimad Bhagavatam. The reading of Srimad Bhagavatam is especially recommended by the great sage Vyasadeva for purification of the heart:

Srinvatam sva kathah krishnah punya-sravana-kirtanah

Hridy antah stho hy abhadrani vidhunoti suhrit satam

“By hearing and reciting the sacred narrations of the pastimes of Lord Krishna (within the Srimad Bhagavatam), all the bad qualities within one’s heart are cleansed.”

it is stated that :

nashta-prayushv abhadreshu nityam bhagavata-sevayabhagavaty uttama-shlokem bhaktir bhavati naishthiki

“By daily reading Srimad Bhagavatam and by rendering service to the pure devotees, all that is troublesome to the heart is almost completely destroyed, and loving devotional service unto the Personality of Godhead is established as an irrevocable fact.”The present age is simply a reflection of the hearts of millions of living entities on the earthly planet. Because our hearts are polluted by kama (lust), krodha (anger), lobha (greed) and matsarya (envy), therefore the present age is called the age of quarrel. It is not that we are bad because the age is bad, but rather the age is bad because our hearts are impure. The cure for a polluted heart is described above: daily reading of the Srimad Bhagavatam. If the entire population were to take up the reading of the sacred text of Srimad Bhagavatam, everyone’s heart would be purified and the age of Kali would no longer be able to influence the world.The Srimad Bhagavatam is not an ordinary book, but it is directly an incarnation of Krishna:

idam bhagavatam nama puranam brahma-sammitamuttama-shloka-caritam cakara bhagavan rishihnihsreyasaya lokasyadhanyam svasty-ayanam mahat

“This Srimad Bhagavatam is the literary incarnation of Krishna, and it is compiled by Srila Vyasadeva, the incarnation of Krishna. It is meant for the ultimate good of all people, and it is all-successful, all blissful and all-perfect.”Srimad Bhagavatam is defined as brahma sammitam because it is the sound representative of Brahman, the absolute truth.

Verse 53

purana shravanaccaiva harernamanukirtanat 
bhasmibhutani papani brahma-hatyadikani ca

 Translation:

Sinful reactions including the killing of a brahmana can be nullified by hearing the Purana and samyama on the esoteric maha-mantra.

Verse 54

Bhasmibhutani tanyeva vaishnavalinganena caTrinani shushkakashthani dahanti pavako yatha 

Translation:

Just as dry grass is burnt by fire, by the embrace of My devotees all sins are burnt.

Verse 55

tathapi vaishnava loke papani papinamapi

prithivyam yani tirthani punyanyapi ca jahnavi

 Translation:

O Ganges, the whole planet will become a pilgrimage sight by the presence of My devotees, even though it had been sinful.

Verse 56

Madbhaktanam sharireshu santi puteshu samtatamMadbhaktapadarajasa sadyah puta vasundhara

Translation:

In the body of my devotees remains eternally [the purifier]. Mother earth becomes pure by the dust of the feet of my devotees.


Verse 57

Sadyah putani tirthani sadyah putam jagattatha

Manmantropasaka vipra ye maducchishtabhojinah

 Translation:

It will be the same in the case of pilgrimage sights and the whole world. Those intelligent worshipers of my mantra who partake My remnants will purify everything.

Explanation:

In this verse the words maducchishtabhojinah are very significant. Krishna states that those who perform samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra and partake of the experience (maducchishtabhojinah) will purify the world.

Human life is meant for performing samyama because samyamadevelops transcendental knowledge. Samyama Pure knowledge and advance in spiritual lifeThe first aspect of this samayama on the maha-mantra will correct any deficiencies in our other services to the Lord due to improper circumstances, impure ingredients, irregular timing, etc. The age of Kali is an ocean of faults. One such fault is that in this age everything is impure. It is impossible to properly perform any sacred activity, as the impurity of the age has affected the entire atmosphere, from the subtle (inner) down to the physical (external). Therefore all sacred activities in the age of Kali must be performed accompanied by samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra.

Verse 58

Mameva nityam dhyayante te mat pranadhikah priyah

Tadupasparshamatrena puto vayushca pavakah

Translation:

They are more dear to Me than My life, who everyday meditate only on Me. The air and fire become pure simply even by their indirect touch.

Verse 59

kaler dasha-sahasrani madbhaktah santi bhu-tale

ekavarna bhavishyanti madbhakteshu gateshu ca

 Translation:

For 10,000 years of kali such devotees of mine will fill the whole planet. After the departure of My devotees there will only be one varna This indicates a time when all people on earth will enjoy Krishna Realization. Such a time is found only during Satyug, so this 10,000 year period is a time of Satyug. 

Verse 60

Madbhaktashunya prithivi kaligrasta bhavishyatiEtasminnantare tatra krishnadehadvinirgatah

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Translation:

Devoid of My devotees, the earth will be shackled by kali. Saying this Krishna departed.Right now 6000 Year we had already passed and 4000 is yet to come. God knows what would be those years. Live Example of Krishna presence can be seen in Vrindavan and in Jagannath Puri where Lord Krishna is still present and many millions of devotees daily experiencing the spiritual bliss of Krishna there that shows a period of Spirituality is yet not fallen.
