In Kah-yuga, sudras will accept charity from others,, or else plunder

others’ wealth without discrimination. Mutual agreement will become

the sole criteria for solemnizing the marriage of a boy and girl. People will

show sympathy and magnanimity, but it will simply be a form of duplicity.

Forgiveness will be granted only when a person is unable to harm the

offending party. In a society of might makes right, people will easily

become annoyed with those in a weaker position. Even fools will be very

talkative in an attempt to prove that they are learned. People will engage

in religious ceremonies, but simply to acquire a reputation. If one has got

wealth, he will be considered to be a saint. Just to bathe in a holy place,

people will travel a great distance and undergo much trouble. Simply by

putting on a sacred thread, one will be recognized as a brahmana. Simply

by carrying a staff, one will be recognized as a sannyasl.

The earth will restrict the production of food grains. The currents of

rivers will flow very rapidly, and even married women will behave little

better than prostitutes, because they have practically no attachment for

their husbands. Those who are twice-born will be dependent on others,

so much so that they will not hesitate to engage as priests for sudras.

Women will become promiscuous, so that will be easily abandoned by

their husbands. Clouds will shower ram very irregularly, and the land

will not yield sufficient crops. Kings will whimsically torture and kill

their subjects, and burden them with excessive taxes. Such unfortunate

subjects will finally take their family and belongings and take shelter of

mountains and dense forests. The people of Kah-yuga will sustain their

lives by eatmg flesh, honey, fruit, and roots, without discrimination.

Almost everyone will take pleasure in blaspheming the Supreme Lord,

Sri Krsna These are some of the symptoms that will manifest at the

beginning of Kah-yuga.

In the second quarter of Kali-yuga, people will no longer chant the

holy names of Lord Krsna. In the third quarter of Kali-yuga, there will be

an upsurge of unwanted population, and in the final quarter of Kali-yuga,

there will be only one class of human being, because God consciousness

will have been long forgotten.

When the study of the Vedas, performance of sacrifice, chanting of

mantras, and other religious practices thus disappear from this world during

Kali-yuga, the demigods, being afflicted due to not receiving their share

of sacrificial offerings, will take shelter of Lord Brahma, the grandfather

of the universe, who was born from the universal lotus flower
