Bhagavad Gita and Shrimad Bhagavatam, which we know by the name ‘The Song of God.’ It has taught many people about deeds, religion, work, salvation, and many other things for many years.
This scripture of 700 verses written in Sanskrit has been given a high place in the Hindu religion. Because Arjuna felt very sad seeing his brothers and relatives in opposition to each other in Kurukshetra, Lord Krishna recited Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna to give him the correct wisdom.
It is also said that Bhagavad Gita is a conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna. Whoever has read Bhagavad Gita will surely know that in the last chapter, Lord Krishna made some predictions about Kaliyug.
In today’s article, we’ll talk about those predictions and how in the present time, all those predictions are accurate.
Prediction No 1.
Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.1 In this verse, Lord Krishna has said all the desirable things like truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, memory, physical strength, and duration of life will diminish day by day.
And if we see, all these things are becoming true in the present time. How many of us always speak the truth if we take an essential thing like ‘truthfulness’? None of us.
Because that’s how we all function. If we’re late for the office, then we give the excuse of traffic. If we can’t complete the homework, then we give the excuse of forgetting our notebook at home.
Despite our moms’ refusal, we also eat ice cream and blame it on our siblings. Just like this, who knows how many lies we tell every day?
One more reason for this is that, in Kaliyug, no one wants to go to the depths of anything. Whatever you say to the person in front of you, they’ll say ‘Yes’ and leave it. Now it’s not their concern if it is a lie or the truth.
Prediction No 2.
Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.2, a person whose behaviour is clear-sighted is considered high class. Their behaviour will be clear-sighted when they benefit society, people staying in society, and animals.
This is the criteria of Hindu Vedas. If we talk about Kaliyug, Lord Krishna has said that in Kaliyug, there will be money that will divide people into the high class and the low class. And this doesn’t stop here.
In Kaliyug, the one with more money will be said to have come from a nice home. Law and justice will be given to the one who has more money.
As you can see, in the present times, we all are divided into three classes. High class, Middle class, and Lower class. And all this is based on money. So it’s obvious the one with more money will have more power.
Prediction No 3.
Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.3 Before Kaliyug, two people would indulge in sexual activities only when they have a deep connection or relationship.
But in this verse, Lord Krishna has said that when Kaliyug comes, people won’t hesitate to have casual relationships with each other. This means they’ll stay with each other only if they are attracted.
Meaning there is no concept of ‘Love.’ And not only this, a person’s masculinity and feminity will be judged based on how sexually active they are, which is very wrong.
In this verse, it is also said that if someone wants to become successful in business, which everybody wants to be, we’ll have to do things like fraud and betrayal.
Prediction No 4.
Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.5. If I ask you that, according to you, who is a filthy person? Then the general tendency is that you’ll say, ‘Someone who has done sins.’
For example, killing someone or wishing something bad for the other person. But there’s a twist in this verse.
Lord Krishna has said that in Kaliyug, the person who doesn’t have money will be called filthy. And a hypocrite will be called a virtuous man.
Prediction No 5.
Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.9. In this verse, Lord Krishna has said many profound things about the future of our planet.
He says that just as a leaf separates from a tree or a plant and becomes dry and withers, in Kaliyug, humans will get farther away from God and dry and wither too.
No matter how many rockets or computers we make, what will we eat until God doesn’t create rain?
Unfortunately, in Kaliyug, people will believe more in the materialistic rather than the spiritual world.
Prediction No 6.
Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.10. These days, we hear on the news about earthquakes, floods, robberies, terrorist attacks, and who knows what else.
But in Bhagavad Gita, the prediction about these was already made. It is said that when Lord Krishna was reciting Bhagavad Gita, at that time, he had said that there’d be a time in Kaliyug when people would face extreme cold and heat and all the extreme things.
These people will suffer from fights and fraud, illnesses, hunger, anxiety, and depression, and their lives will end in all these.
Prediction No 7.
Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.36. Servants will abandon their masters when they don’t have money. No matter how much that master must’ve helped them.
And masters will abandon the servants who they think are incompetent. No matter how many years they must’ve served him.
Prediction No 8.
Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.41. Why did Mahabharata happen? Because instead of love, hate had spread among brothers.
Strategies were made for cheating their relatives. And if we see something similar happening in the present times, too.
Humans have no love left for others. And love is a different thing, but at present, even humanity has dispersed.
In this verse of the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna says that a person will break their relationship with another person just for money.
And not only this, he won’t care about his own life or even the life of the person in front of him. They will come down to compete with their relatives.
Prediction No 9.
Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.42 Our parents spend their entire lives raising and caring for us. But in the present time, it has become widespread that when parents grow old, their kids send them to old homes. Why?
Because they feel like their parents are a burden, Lord Krishna has addressed this in his verse.
Children of Kaliyug won’t respect their parents. Instead, they will run behind materialistic things and be engaged in satisfying their sexual desires.
Millions of years have passed since Bhagavad Gita was said. But many such things are relevant in present times, too. So, these were the few predictions made in Bhagavad Gita about Kaliyug.
