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

  • Where did you read that it is a bad yuga? – Wikash_ May 31 at 7:49
  • @Wikash My mom told me that lot of people in this kali yuga are bad people – The Preserver May 31 at 18:56
  • I did not read that – The Preserver May 31 at 18:59
  • Technically speaking people will sin more and in that sense become bad but it is due to the demon Kali. – Wikash_ May 31 at 23:55
  • @Wikash_ Kali is not a demon. She is a powerful Shakti – The Preserver Jun 6 at 1:11

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 ? – Carmen sandiego May 31 at 5:59

  • ha ha :) I just got the name first so I put the name. I actually don't know how to say the whole stotram – The Preserver Jun 1 at 2:44

    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 – Wikash_ Jun 10 at 6:56
