    The Prominence of Kaliyuga

            Kaliyuga, though is shortest, is the culmination point of the other three Yugas. In this era, man is bestowed with the privilege of working out all past karmas – actions - and earn spiritual liberation. Hence, even the deities and Great Souls aspire to get birth in this period, despite the fact that sorrow and suffering are a common thing in this age. We must keep in mind that grieve, pain and distress man has to deal with, are necessary to make man realize about the main reason for taking birth on Earth and that is to evolve and find spiritual liberation.

Dubbing this Yuga as the most negative, obscure and detestable period of time, was the unforgivable calumny caused by the ignorance of people and by the vested interests to further their own ends. This Kali Age is the period of samkara which is the cohesive consolidation of all castes, creeds, religions, etc.
