How is it fair that kali yuga is the only bad yuga because Dwapara Yuga, Treta Yuga, and Satya yuga have most dharma while Kali yuga has the least dharma

  • @Wikash My mom told me that lot of people in this kali yuga are bad people May 31 '20 at 18:56
  • I did not read that May 31 '20 at 18:59
  • Technically speaking people will sin more and in that sense become bad but it is due to the demon Kali.

Who said Kali Yug is bad ?

Ved Vyasa himself said "Kali Sadhu:" - meaning Kali is great

Each Yug has its own methods of attaining Bhagavan. Kali is the easiest.

Vishnu Puran:

dhyayan krite yajan yajnais

tretayam dvapare arcayan

yad apnoti tad apnoti

kalau sankirtya kesavam

Meaning:

Whatever is achieved by dhyana in Satya-yuga,
by the performance of yagna in Treta-yuga,
and by puja in Dvapara-yuga,
that is obtained in Kali-yuga by glorifying Keshava.

So, in Kali, we don't have to do arduous penances because Bhagavan is very lenient - he knows that most people born in this Yug are spiritually weak and degraded and sinful, so he gave them an easy rope to climb out.

  • I assume you mean Srimad Bhagvatam instead of Vishnu Purana ? May 31 '20 at 5:59

    There is no easy rope out: one can do charity, chant the name of god (be it Vishnu, Hanuman or whatever you like) and doing good deeds
