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.
