Bhagavad gita predictions for Kaliyuga
It is believed to be an accounted framework of dialogue amid Lord Krishna and Arjuna during the battle of Mahabharat; when the latter expressed his ache towards killing his own blood for throne.
The narrative in the form of Bhagvada Gita was exposed to world by Sanjay, King Dhritarashtra's advisor and charioteer, who with his divine sense cognized all the events of the battlefield
Those who have thoroughly read Bhagvada Gita, would be aware that in the last section of this holy manuscript is a list of prophecies for the present age Kaliyuga.
Though, these predictions were made more than 5,000 years ago by Lord Krishna, but they appear to be so accurate that you can’t deny any of it.
Religion, truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, duration of life, physical strength, and memory will all diminish day by day because of the powerful influence of the age of Kali.
In Kali Yuga, wealth alone will be considered the sign of a man’s good birth, proper behaviour, and fine qualities. And law and justice will be applied only on the basis of one’s power.
Men and women will live together merely because of superficial attraction, and success in business will depend on deceit. Womanliness and manliness will be judged according to one’s expertise in sex, and a man will be known as a brahmana just by his wearing a thread.
In Kali-yuga men will develop a hatred for each other even over a few coins. Giving up all friendly relations, they will be ready to lose their own lives and kill even their own relatives.
Uncultured men will accept charity on behalf of the Lord and will earn their livelihood by making a show of austerity and wearing a mendicant’s dress. Those who know nothing about religion will mount a high seat and presume to speak on religious principles.
Cities will be dominated by thieves, the Vedas will be contaminated by speculative interpretations of atheists, political leaders will virtually consume the citizens, and the so-called priests and intellectuals will be devotees of their bellies and genitals.
Apart from mentioned in Bhagavada Gita, few other prophecies were made by religious experts of those times, which included: Thieves will become kings, and kings will be the thieves. The 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.
How will the world end?
The one, who has taken birth, will remain forever in fear of death. So, to say this world too, one day see its end. End of this world or Pralaya, according to Puranas is of three kind: Naimittka- induced; Prakrita- natural; Atyantika- immediate.
This destruction will start with an underwater explosion that will take place somewhere in the southern ocean. It will be preceded by a hundred year drought during, which the people who are not robust will perish. The seas, the rivers, the mountain streams, and the underground streams will be drained. Twelve suns will cause the seas to evaporate. Fed by this water, seven suns will form which will reduce the three worlds to ashes; the earth will become hard like a turtle's shell.
Fire from the mouth of the underground serpent will burn the lower worlds, then the surface of the earth, and will set the atmosphere ablaze. This mass of fire will burn with a great noise. Surrounded by these circles of fire, all animate and inanimate objects will be destroyed. The destroyer god will breathe enormous clouds, which will make a terrible noise. A mass of clouds charged with energy, destroyer of all (sarvantaka), will appear in the sky like a herd of elephants.
