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.
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 misery.
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.
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,
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
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.
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 bliss.
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
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
people 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
average 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 yuga.
There are 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 existence.
People were 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.
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.
would 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.
Brahmins 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.
One sees 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.
At 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 eliminated."
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."
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 attain salvation."
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 things.
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 exist.
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
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.
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.
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 imposter.
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 righteous.
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
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
invites you to the Wonderful Spiritual World
