Srimad Bhagavatam 12.02.22-26 - Technology Hastened Kaliyuga Symptoms (download mp3)
by Krishnanam Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
teṣāṁ prajā-visargaś ca
sattva-mūrtau hṛdi sthite
When Lord Vāsudeva, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, appears in their hearts in His transcendental form of goodness, the remaining citizens will abundantly repopulate the earth.
kalkir dharma-patir hariḥ
kṛtaṁ bhaviṣyati tadā
prajā-sūtiś ca sāttvikī
When the Supreme Lord has appeared on earth as Kalki, the maintainer of religion, Satya-yuga will begin, and human society will bring forth progeny in the mode of goodness.
yadā candraś ca sūryaś ca
bhaviṣyati tadā kṛtam
When the moon, the sun and Bṛhaspatī are together in the constellation Karkaṭa, and all three enter simultaneously into the lunar mansion Puṣyā — at that exact moment the age of Satya, or Kṛta, will begin.
ye ’tītā vartamānā ye
bhaviṣyanti ca pārthivāḥ
te ta uddeśataḥ proktā
Thus I have described all the kings — past, present and future — who belong to the dynasties of the sun and the moon.
ārabhya bhavato janma
etad varṣa-sahasraṁ tu
From your birth up to the coronation of King Nanda, 1,150 years will pass.
Although Śukadeva Gosvāmī previously described approximately fifteen hundred years of royal dynasties, it is understood that some overlapping occurred between kings. Therefore the present chronological calculation should be taken as authoritative.
