Amongst the four era’s, the Satya yuga is the first and the most
significant one. This era began on Sunday, Vaishakh Shukla Tritiya day
which is also known as Akshaya Tritiya. This extends up to 17,28,000
years. God incarnated in four forms i.e. Matsya, Kurma, Varaha and
Narsimha in this era. Knowledge, meditation and penance would hold
special importance in this era. The average height of people was more
than what it is today. Every king would attain the pre-determined
attainments and would experience bliss. All the four pillars of religion
i.e. truth, penance, yagya (religious sacrifice) and charity were
present in totality. The only text which was considered credible and was
followed was Manu’s Dharma Shastra. Satya yuga shall be established by
Kalki again after the Kali yuga. The average life expectancy of a human
being in Satya yuga was approximately 4000 years.
the end of this era when the Sun, Moon, Jupiter together enter Pushya
Nakshatra that is the Cancer Zodiac then the Satya yuga shall begin.
During this time the stars/constellations shall become auspicious and
radiant. As a result it shall accrue in the well being of all creatures
and the health will ameliorate. It is during this auspicious time that
Vishnu’s Incarnation Kalki shall take birth in a Brahmin family. This
incarnation shall be mighty, intelligent and valiant. He shall engage in
good of all benefactors. At the spun of the moment, no sooner he thinks
he shall be armed with all the weapons, armours and an army, he shall be
coronated king who shall know no enemy. He shall be benevolent and a
radiant Brahmin and shall be the one who shall emancipate the ones in
He shall be the one and only one to destroy the Kaliyuga and initiate
the holy and divine Satya yuga. Bhagwan Kalki in the Satya yuga shall
destroy all the dacoits and robbers. He shall perform the Ashwamedha
Yagya and shall donate this entire world to the Brahmins. His success
and deeds will be divine and sublime. He shall establish the auspicious
ideals and principles propounded by Lord Brahma after which he shall go
to the forest to practice penance.
After this all the generations to come shall follow the ideals
established by Bhagwan Kalki and shall engage in religious activities.
Accordingly on the advent of the Satya yuga all people shall engage
assiduously in good, sublime deeds.
One shall witness the emergence of beautiful gardens, Dharmashalas
(Resting Inns) and majestic temples. One shall see the execution of many
a huge yagyas. Brahmins, sages, ascetics according to their nature shall
be absorbed in penance. Ashrams shall be devoid of the wicked and the
deceits. This era shall usher better agriculture and one shall be able
to grow all foodgrains in all seasons. People shall generously donate
and will follow all the rules and regulations mentioned. The kings shall
protect their subjects and earth very sincerely.
Vaishya (traders) of this era shall engage in trade and business very
justly and honestly. Brahmins shall be engaged continually in religious
sacrifices, study, teaching, charity etc. The Kshatriya (warriors) shall
be inclined towards exhibition of valiance and might. The Shudras shall
sincerely serve the Brahmins, Kshatriyas and Vaishyas. This form of
religion shall remain intact and absolute in the Satya yuga.
One shall witness the total establishment of Sanatan Dharma (eternal
religion). During the Satya yuga, the child was not ruined when the
father or mother expired. All the gods, demons, Gandharvas, Yaksha would
give up their hatred and differences. The Rik, Sama and Yajurveda were
not separate and demarcated. This era was devoid of agricultural
activities or rather any other type of activity. Just by mere
contemplation one would beget desired results. The only religion that
was relevant was- the renunciation of vested interests. People in this
era would never fall ill. No one would try to point out faults or
demerits in anyone’s personality. The personality was not plagued by
demerits alike ego, sorrow, violent thought (aggression), jealousy,
hatred, backbiting, fear, anger and lethargy.
that time, the colour of the Supreme cosmic soul that was situated in
the heart of one and all and the saviour of all the sages was white.
All the people that are Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and Shudras were
embellished with all the good qualities. At that time, the only saviour
of all the people was God. People would practice austerities and penance
to attain God. All would be inclined towards the supreme knowledge and
all actions performed would be in the intention of attaining celestial
In this way all these divine people would be bestowed with sublime faith
and piousness. Albeit, people were segregated on the basis of Varnashram
method, they would all reponse their faith in the Vedas and the Sanatan
Dharma.Because these people were devoid of selfishness, they would
effortlessly attain sublimity or union with God, which is a salient
feature of Satya yuga.Very valiant, mighty, intelligent and people
gifted with all good qualities would take birth in this era. They would
surprisingly give birth to thousands of children. Great sages
embellished with divinity would take birth in this era.
One sees the
advent of religious sacrifices i.e. Yagyas in the Treta yuga. One pillar
of the four pillars of religion meets its end. The colour of Bhagwan
Achyut becomes red. People in this era will be truthful and would
perform all the religious ceremonies according to the sacrifices. It is
the Treta yuga where one can see the overtures of Yagyas, religion and
allied activities. People would beget desired fruits by performing
actions, donations mentioned in the Vedas and by taking resolutions
in this era were assiduous and active. The main religion of Brahmins was
truth that is truthful speech, good conduct and love towards all
creatures. The common religion of all the Brahmins was Yagya, self-study
and donation. The primary aim of Shudras was service towards Brahmins,
Kshatriyas and Vaishyas. The duties of Kshatriyas and Vaishyas were the
protection of people and agriculture, trade and poultry respectively.
All people would sincerely adhere to their respective duties and as a
result they would be blessed with celestial bliss
life expectancy of a human in the Treta yuga was approximately 3000
years. All the Kshatriyas born in this era were valiant, zealous, big
thinkers, pious, truthful, beautiful, suitable to be blessed, revered
and the protectors of all people. The Vedas, religious sacrifices and
Varnashram were adhered to very strictly in the Satyayuga and the Treta
only two pillars left of religion in the Dwapar yuga. Here Bhagwan
Vishnu assumes yellow colour. Here the Vedas are categorized into four
parts that is Rik, Sama, Yajur and Atharvaveda. During those times the
Brahmins were knowledgeable of two, some of three and some others have
studied all the four Vedas thoroughly. Accordingly because of this
categorization, even different actions and activities came into
engaged only in penance and charity. They were kingly and pleasure
seeking. In this era, the divine intellect ceased to exist, hence seldom
anyone would be truthful. Consequently people were plagued by ailments,
diseases and various types of desires. After suffering from these
ailments people would perform penance. Some would also organize Yagya
for material benefits as well as for divinity.
this era, the Brahmins were involved in Yagya, self-study, donation and
teaching activities. The duties of Kshatriyas were protection of
subjects and the duty of Vaishyas was trade, poultry and agriculture.
The duty of Shudras was to serve all these three classes.
The Kshatriyas in this era were humble and performed their duties by
controlling their senses. The king would avail to the advice of the
learned scholars and accordingly would maintain law and order in his
empire. The king who was addicted to vices would definitely end up
defeated. One or two or all from Sama, Dama, Danda, Bhed and Upeksha
would be brought into use and would attain the desired. Kings were
diligent in maintaining public decorum and order.
plan many a conspiracy surreptitiously along with the scholars. Strong
people would execute work where execution of policies was involved.The
king would appoint priests etc to perform religious activities,
economists and ministers to perform monetary activities, impotents to
take carte of women and cruel men to execute heinous activities
would attain celestial bliss by engaging in penance, religion, control
of senses, restraint, Yagya etc. Vaishya would attain higher planes
through charity and hospitality.The Kshatriyas would honestly execute
all policies of law and order without being angry, cruel and being
devoid of greed and consequently attained bliss.The average life
expectancy of humans in Dwapar was 2000 years. All people in this era
were zealous, valiant, courageous and competitive by nature
that the life expectancy began to fall in this era because of neglect of
Varnashram, Vedas and Yagyas. Vedas became inactivated during the Dwapar
and Kali yuga. At the end of Kali yuga somewhere they shall be seen and
some places they shall be seen and some places they shall not be seen
the end of the Dwapar Yuga, when Lord Shri Krishna renounced the world
and went to Goloka, at that time Kali Yuga, the source of all chaos took
birth in the minds of the ignorant. When king Yudhishtir realized the
advent of the Kali Yuga that is chaos, greed, violence, debauchery and
lies, he expressed a desire to go to the forest and do penance.
Accordingly, he abdicated the throne and coronated his grandson
Parikshit as the king.
When Kali Yuga met king Parikshit, he was shivering with fear and said
humbly:" O king! Brahma created 4 eras that are Satya, Treta, Dwapar and
Kali Yuga. Satya Yuga enjoyed his reign for 17,28,000 years and went
away. Treta Yuga enjoyed his reign for 12,96,000 years and Dwapar Yuga
enjoyed his reign for 8,64,000 years and passed away. Now the time for
me has come to reign which is 4,32,000 years and you tell me to get out
from your empire. You rule over the entire world. Where should I go
after all? O king! What is once proposed by the Gods cannot be erased or
Kali Yuga told Parikshit that:" You point your fingers on my flaws and
demerits but do not see my merits and positive aspects. I am embellished
with sublime merits. That is the reason I request you.
During the Satya Yuga if any one inadvertently committed a wrong deed
the entire kingdom had to bear the punishment. During Treta, if any one
committed a wrong deed, the people of that town had to bear the
punishment. During Dwapar Yuga, if anyone happened to commit a wrong
deed, the entire family had to bear the punishment, but in Kali Yuga, he
shall only bear the punishment who has committed the wrong deed. I am
not concerned about anyone else."
Unlike the other eras where one had to inevitably bear the punishment
for a wrong and bad thoughts, In my era, this shall cease to happen but
one shall be bestowed with good fruits who thinks good."
Even after listening to this, King Parikshit did not relent, Kali Yuga
said that he was endowed with yet another sublime merits. He said:" One
could fulfill all ones wishes and desires in the Satya Yuga only after
practicing penance for 10,000 years. Similarly in the Treta Yuga and the
Dwapar Yuga, one had to collect a lot of money and perform Yagyas and
had to engage in charity, penance, vows and worship for a 100 years
respectively to fulfil ones desires. Unlike the others, in this era, if
one even prays to God for sometime with total faith and devotions and
sings the praises of the Lord, he shall fulfill all his desires within
no time. He shall be liberated from all his sins and shall consequently
Listening to this King Parikshit was pleased. King Parikshit finally
allowed Kali Yuga to stay and allowed him four places where he could
stay, liquor and wine, where a prostitute stays, where there is animal
slaughter and where gambling would be allowed. Kali Yuga humbly pleaded
that his family was very big that is it comprises of members like lust,
anger, greed, ego, jealousy, lies etc.
How shall all of them fit in these allotted places? On this king
Parikshit said that they should all then dwell in gold. In this way,
Kali Yuga resides in the 5 places allotted by king Parikshit. Those
people who yearn for higher ideals should not even go near these five
the Kali Yuga, by seeking the blessings of Lord Jagannath Puri, one
shall attain salvation.
In the Kali Yuga, there is no average life expectancy of humans. Even a
child in the womb can die inspite of his mother and father living..
Humans taking birth in this era will usually be radiant, bad tempered,
greedy and untruthful. The personality will be plagued by flaws such as
jealousy, ego, anger, pleasure, instinct, desires and greed.There shall
be only one pillar of religion in the Kali Yuga. Here the idol of
Bhagwan Vishnu has assumed a black colour because of the inherent chaos
and delusion. Vedic conduct, religion, Yagya and Karma all cease to
All types of problems such as ailments, lethargy, anger, mental diseases
and hunger, thirst tend to aggravate. Gradually even happiness and
comforts of humans become decadent and morbid. In this era Brahmins do
the work of a Shudra and the Shudras alike the Vaishyas amass wealth or
alike Kshatriyas engage in allied activities and earn their livelihood.
In Kali Yuga, Brahmins shall renounce self-study, contemplation and
shall eat every thing that is prohibited. They will no more be inclined
towards penance and on the contrary Shudras shall take interest in
recitation of Vedic chants.
In this way when hypocrisy reaches the zenith, it initiates the final
annihilation. Many a king of the inferior category shall reign the earth
who shall be sinners, unfaithful and wicked. Kings of places such as
Andhra, Shaka, Pulunda, Yavan, Kamboj, Bahrhik and other wealthy Aamir
shall become kings. No Brahmin in this age shall earn his daily bread
and butter honestly.
Kshatriyas and Vaishyas shall engage in all duties other than those,
which are coveted. All shall become less valiant, they shall be short
lived, will lack energy and strength. Humans shall be short in height
and shall seldom speak the truth. All the directions will have snakes
and animals. Some people shall meaninglessly talk of Brahma Jnana.
Shudras shall criticize the Brahmins while the Brahmins shall praise and
eulogize the Shudras.
Many a creatures, insects etc. shall take birth in Kali Yuga. All things
that ought to have fragrance shall not be that fragrant, and food shall
relatively become tasteless. Women shall be short and have many
children. Women in this era shall be immoral and licentious by nature.
Most people shall be traders of food while Brahmins shall sell the
Vedas. Most of the women shall engage in prostitution. In the Kali Yuga,
there will be very less milk in the udders of the cow. Seldom will there
be fruits and flowers on trees. There will be excessive number of crows
in comparison to other birds. Brahmins will engage in killing and shall
take donation from kings inspite of lying. Brahmins as a whole shall be
imposters and feign to be very pious and pure. They will harass the
common people for alms etc.
Householders shall indulge in robbery because they will be unable to pay
up their taxes. They shall disguise in the form of sages, ascetics and
earn their livelihood. Even people who are celibates shall give up their
purity and engage in intoxication and shall have illicit sex. People
will engage in all those material activities that ushers physical energy
only. All Ashrams shall be a haven of all imposters and they shall be
totally dependent on food from others. During this time, seldom shall it
rain and even the yield, production of grain will not be satisfactory.
People will be aggressive by nature and consequently unholy and impure.
The ones indulging in irreligious and blasphemous acts shall emerge
powerful and prosperous. Those who are righteous shall be in penury.
Just by amassing a little amount of wealth one shall become proud and
they despite having wealth shall have an eye on others wealth and
property. In Kali Yuga, girls, 8-10 years old shall become pregnant
while boys of the age of 10-12 years shall have children. On the
sixteenth year itself the hair will turn white. Youth shall become alike
old men and old men shall become energetic and youthful. Women will
engage in sex with inferior men, servants and animals inspite of having
a good husband.
Religion, truth, thoughts, pity, age, energy, memory all shall get
gradually emaciated and drained. People will love only their own
children and family and will not hesitate to deceive their own friends,
benefactors.Judges of events shall favor the wealthy and the
impoverished shall be denied justice. One who constantly blabbers shall
be called a saint and one who is in a miserable state will be called an
Any lake or reservoir situated far away will be referred as a holy
shrine. Growing hair will be an indication of beauty. People will take
interest in religious actions so as to become prosperous and successful.
He who subdues the others shall be self-proclaimed king. Subjects to
protect their families shall seek refuge in caves and caverns and will
lead a miserable life.
People will be plagued with all types of extreme climatic conditions.
Average life expectancy of a human being in Kali Yuga will be
approximately 20 to 30 years only.As the delusion will aggravate people
will become weak and devoid of radiance, medicines and food will plummet
and all the four stages (Varnashrams) will be represented by
Grihastashram (householder’s duty). By the end of the Kali Yuga, The
God shall reincarnate to protect religion and to destroy all evil. Lord
Vishnu shall incarnate and shall give refuge to all that are good and
When Sun, Moon and Jupiter together enter the Pushya Nakshatra and
cancer zodiac at that time by the inspiration of time, a divine and
strong child named Vishuyasha Kalki shall take birth in a Brahmin family
in a village known as Sambhal.
He shall be the saviour of one and all and he will possess weapon on the
spur of the moment. He shall emancipate this world from all miseries and
create happiness. He will put an end to the Kali Yuga and shall create a
novel Satya Yuga embellished with truth and beauty. Bhagwan Kalki shall
recoronate all the Brahmins as the rulers and will massacre all the
outcastes and inferior (barbarians)
