Puraan | Others
Kalki Puraan lists the times and life of Kalki Bhagvaan - the 10th, or 24th, or the last Avataar. It is considered an Upa-Puraan, still it draws many passages directly from 18 Mahaa Puraan. It is set in the environment of 4320th century of Kali Yug. It seems that it existed before 16th century AD as Jaayasee's Padmaavat (1540 AD) has a reference to it. Its text is divided in three parts - 7, 7 and 21 chapters respectively.
It says that sin will increase in Kali Yug. After Krishn Avataar of Dwaapar Yug, the Varn system will deteriorate in the beginning of Kali Yug. Soon after this the second, third and fourth stages will also begin. During the second and third stages, people will forget the name of god and will not do any Yagya. During the last stage of kali Yug, cannibalism will be virtually everywhere. TO save the people from this awkward situation Devtaa will go to Brahmaa Jee and request for a solution. Near the end of this Yug, they will go to Vaikunth to pray Vishnu and the Vishnu will descend on Earth as Kalki Avataar to end people's miseries.
He will come to the house of Vishnuyash and Sumati on Vaishaakh Shukla 12. It is believed that Vishnuyash and Sumati would have three sons before the birth of Kalki - Kavi, Praagya and Sumantra. He will pass his childhood in Shambhal kingdom. many Chiranjeevee (Immortals) will gather there and Kalki will be trained in Martial Arts by Parashuraam Jee. After His education and training, he will start penance for Shiv in the Himaalaya. He will receive a winged horse, named Devadatt, a celestial parrot (Shuk), and a Ratn Maru named sword from Shiv. He will marry Padmaa (the incarnation of Vishnu's consort Lakshmee) and will have two sons, Jaya and Vijaya, from Her. Then He will perform Ashwamedh Yagya before starting the final destruction of evil.
He will begin this with battle and will end in massacre of the Shoonyavaadee who would misled the people at the city of Keekatpur. Kalki will fight with demon Generals Kokaa and Vikokaa. Kali will be defeated by Dharm, a personification of Sat Yug. Kalki will kill Kokaa and Vikokaa. Finally Kalki will be challenged by Raajaa Shashidhwaj and will accept defeat voluntarily from him and marry his daughter Ramaa, His second wife, before the start of Sat Yug.
