Kings in Kali Yug
Paraashar Jee said - "Hey Maitreya, The last king of Brihadrath Vansh, Ripunjaya will have a minister named Sunik. He will kill Ripunjaya and rown his son Pradyot.
Pradyot's son will be Balaak
Nandee's son will be Shishunaabh
Mahaanandee will have a son named Mahaapadm, who will be like second Parashuraam - destroyer of Kshatriya, from a Shoodra woman. After that Shoodra kings will rule. Mahaapadm alone will be the king of whole Prithvi. He will have Sumaalee etc eight sons who will rule after Mahaapadm. Mahaapadm and his sons will rule for 100 years.
After that a Kautilya named Braahman will destroy these nine Nand. And after these Nand, Maurya kings will rule the Prithvi. Kautilya will install Chandragupt, born from Nand and Muraa named maid, as king.
Chandragupt's son will be Bindusaar
After them, ten Shung Vanshee kings will rule the Prithvi. Among them the first Shung king will be Pushyamitra named army-chief who will kill his king and rule the Prithvi.
Pushyamitra's son will be Ashimitra
Devabhooti will be a lusty king, so a Kanv Vanshee Vasudev, his minister will kill him and rule the Prithvi.
Vasudev's son will be Bhoomitra
This Kanv Vanshee king Susharmaa will be killed by his Aandhra caste servant Balipuchchhak, and he himself will rule the Prithvi. After him his brother Krishn will rule.
Krishn's son will be Shaantkarni
Sundar's son will be Shaatkarni (II)
After them there will be seven Aabheer and 10 Gardbhil kings. Then there will be 16 Shak kings, after them will be eight Yavan kings, 14 Turk, 13 Mund (Gurmund) and 11 Maun caste kings will rule Prithvi for 1,090 years. These 11 Maun kings will rule for 300 years.
After them Kainkil named Yavan kings will rule. These kings will be without crown. After them Vindhyashakti will come.
Vindhyashakti's son will be Puranjaya
After them will be 13 of their Vansh and three of Baahleek Vansh kings. After them 13 Pushpmitra and Patumitra etc and seven Aandhra region kings. Then nine kings will rule in Koshal Desh. They will rule on Nishadh Desh too.
In Magadh Desh, Vishwasphatic king will introduce other Varn kings. He will appoint Kaivartt, Vatu, Pulind and Braahman in his kingdom. Then all Kshatriya will be eradicated and Naag Gan will rule in Padmaavatee Puree and Magadh and Gupt kings will rule in Prayaag and Gayaa regions. Koshal, Aandhra, Pundra, Taamralipt and Puree on seashore will be ruled by Devarakshit named king.
Kaling, Maahish, Mahendra, and Bhaum etc regions will be ruled by Guh kings. Naishadh, Naimishak and Kaalkoshak etc regions will be ruled by Mani-Dhaanyak Vansh. Traya-Raajya and Mushik regions will be ruled by Kanak named king, Sauraashtra, Avantee, Shoodra, Aabheer and Narmadaa shoreline desert will be ruled by Vraatya, Dwij, Aabheer and Shoodra. Seashore areas, Daavikorvee, Chandrabhaagaa and Kaashmeer will be ruled by Vraatya, Mlechchh and Shoodra etc. All these kings will be ruling at the same time. They will be pleased in a little while, will be very angry, always A-Dharmee, liar, greedy, of short age, and very ambitious. They will unite themselves and will be mighty on each other's might.
Dharm in Kali Yug
After this Dharm will start diminishing gradually and the whole world will be destroyed. At that time wealth will be the only measurement of nobleness, might will be the only Dharm, mutual interests will be the only basis of marital relationship and women will be the only means of enjoyment. Lying will be the only means of success, outward signs will be the identification of Aashram, injustice will be the means of living, fearless speaking will be the sign of knowledge, just accepting each other will be the basis of marriage, whoever will be living with pomp and show, only he will be considered a reasonable person, water of foreign lands will be the water of Teerth. When his type of ill-wills will spread throughout, then whoever will be powerful will be the king.
The people will not be able to tolerate such kings, so they will seek the protection in caves and will subsist on honey, vegetables, fruits, roots, leaves and flowers. They will wear only tree leaves or yellow clothes. They will have many children. All will tolerate the winter, summer, wind, rain troubles. Nobody will live more than 23 years of age. Thus in Kali Yug the society will be continuously decreased. All kinds of Dharm will also disappear. At the end of the Kali Yug, Vishnuyash Braahman, residing in Sambhal (UP), the Creator of the Universe Bhagavaan Vaasudev will incarnate and destroy all Mlechchh and slaves and other wicked people and establish Dharm. Although He will live longer, He will be able to produce children. Those children will follow only Sat Yug Dharm.
It is said in this regard - "When Moon, Sun and Jupiter will be in Pushya Nakshatra in the same sign, Sat Yug will start at the same time (see Start of Sat Yug)."
Hey Muni, I told you about all the past, present, and future kings. From Pareekshit's birth till the installation of Nand, the time period should be 1,050 years. Among Saptarshi, the two stars are seen first - Pulastya and Kratu. In the center of those stars, whichever stars are towards southern side - Ashwinee etc, Saptarshi stay among those stars for 1,000 years on each star. At the time of the birth of Pareekshit Saptarshi were on Maghaa Nakshatra. The Kali Yug started at the same time.
Hey Braahman, When Krishn went to His Param Dhaam, at the same time Kali Yug started. Till He was here on prithvi, Kali did not dare to touch Prithvi. After krishn left, Yudhishthir also abandoned his kingdom. He handed over his kingdom to Pareekshit seeing bad omens.
When the Saptarshi will be in Poorv Aashaadhaa Nakshatra, from the same time - from the time of Nand, effect of Kali Yug will increase.
