Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavad Puran which we also know by the name ‘The Song of God. For many years, it has been giving knowledge to many people in this world, about deeds, religion, work, salvation, and many other things. This scripture of 700 verses written in Sanskrit, has been given a high place in the Hindu religion. Because Arjuna was feeling very sad seeing his brothers and relatives in opposition to each other in Kurukshetra, that is why Lord Krishna recited Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna to give him the correct wisdom.
It is also said that Bhagavad Gita is a conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna. Whoever has read Bhagavad Gita will surely know that in the last chapter, Lord Krishna had made some predictions about Kaliyug. In today’s blog, we’ll talk about those predictions, and how in the present time, all those predictions are accurate.
1. Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.1
In this verse, Lord Krishna has said, all the desirable things like truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, memory, physical strength, and duration of life will diminish day by day. And if we see, all these things are becoming true in the present time. If we take a basic thing like ‘truthfulness’, how many of us always speak the truth? None of us. Because that’s how we all function.
If we’re late for the office, then we give the excuse of traffic. If we couldn’t complete the homework, then we give the excuse of forgetting our notebook at home. Despite our moms’ refusal, we eat ice cream and blame it on our siblings, too. Just like this, who knows how many lies we tell every day. One more reason for this is that, in Kaliyug, no one wants to go to the depths of anything. Whatever you say to the person in front of you, they’ll say ‘Yes’ and leave it. Now it’s not their concern if it is a lie or the truth.
2. Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.2
According to Hindu Vedas, a person whose behavior will be clear-sighted they are considered high class. Their behavior will be clear-sighted when they will be beneficial to society, people staying in the society and animals. But as I said, this is the criteria of Hindu Vedas.
If we talk about Kaliyug, Lord Krishna has said that in Kaliyug, there will be money which will divide people into high class and low class. And this doesn’t stop here. In Kaliyug, the one who will have more money will be said to have come from a nice home. Law and justice will be given to the one who has more money. As you can see in the present times, we all are divided into 3 classes. High class, Middle class, and Lower class. And all this is based on money. So it’s obvious, that the one who will have more money will have more power.
3. Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.3
Before Kaliyug, two people would indulge in sexual activities only when they have a deep connection or relationship. But in this verse, Lord Krishna has said that when Kaliyug will come, people won’t hesitate to have casual relationships with each other. This means that they’ll stay with each other only if they are attracted.
This means, there is no concept of ‘Love’. And not only this, a person’s masculinity and feminity will be judged based on how sexually active they are which is very very wrong. In this verse, it is also said that if someone wants to become successful in business, which everybody wants to be, then for that, we’ll have to do things like fraud and betrayal.
4. Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.5
If I ask you that according to you, who is a filthy person? Then the general tendency is that you’ll say ‘Someone who has done sins.’ For example, killing someone, or wishing something bad for the other person. But, there’s a twist in this verse. Lord Krishna has said that in Kaliyug, the person who doesn’t have money will be called filthy. And a hypocrite will be called a virtuous man.
5. Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.9
In this verse, Lord Krishna has said many deep things about the future of our planet. He says that just as a leaf separates from a tree or a plant and becomes dry and withers just like that, in Kaliyug, humans will get farther away from God and they will dry and wither too. No matter how many rockets or computers we make, until God doesn’t create rain, what will we eat? Unfortunately in Kaliyug, people will believe more in the materialistic world rather than the spiritual world.
6. Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.10
These days we hear on the news, about earthquakes, floods, robberies, terrorist attacks, and who knows what else. But in Bhagavad Gita, the prediction about these was already done. It is said that when Lord Krishna was reciting Bhagavad Gita, at that time he had said that there’ll be a time in Kaliyug when people will face extreme cold and heat, and all extreme things. These people will suffer from fights and fraud, illnesses, hunger, anxiety, and depression and their life will end in all these.
7. Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.36
Servants will abandon their masters when they won’t have money. No matter how much that master must’ve helped them. And masters will abandon the servants who they think are incompetent. No matter how many years they must’ve served him.
8. Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.41
Why did Mahabharata happen? Because instead of love, hate had spread among brothers. Strategies were made for cheating their relatives. And if we see, something similar is happening in the present times, too. Humans have no love left for others. And love is a different thing, but at present, even humanity has dispersed.
In this verse of the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna says that a person will break their relationship with the other person just for money. And not only this, he won’t care about his own life and not even the life of the person in front of him. They will come down just to compete with their relatives.
9. Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.42
Our parents spend their entire lives raising us and taking care of us. But in the present time, it has become very common that when parents grow old, then their kids send them to old age homes. Why? Because they feel like their parents are a burden. Lord Krishna has addressed this same thing in his verse. Children of Kaliyug won’t respect their parents instead, they will run behind materialistic things and will be engaged in satisfying their sexual desires.
Millions of years have passed since Bhagavad Gita had been said. But many such things are relevant in present times, too. So, these were the few predictions that were made in Bhagavad Gita about Kaliyug. So let us know in the comments that out of all these predictions, which predictions have you seen getting real?
