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
the 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.
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, sublime deeds.
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.
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
that 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
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.
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 era.
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 resolutions
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 bliss
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
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
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.
this 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.
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.
Kings 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
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
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
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.
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."
Yuga 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.
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."
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."
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.
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..
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.
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
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.
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.
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

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.
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.

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.

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
