    Prophecies from the Puranas

        The Puranas are part of the sacred literature of Hinduism and were written in Sanskrit language. Each Purana is supposed to deal with five topics, which are the creation of the Universe, the destruction and re-creation of the Universe, including the history of humankind, the genealogy of the gods and holy sages, the reigns of the Manus, and the history of the lunar and solar dynasties. Though tradition attributes the Puranas to Vyasa, a semi legendary Hindu rishi –sage-, scholars, however regard the Puranas as having been compiled by many hands between the fourth and the sixteenth centuries AD.

        Analyzing these prophecies, we come to the fact that they have an astonishing similarity with Christ's prophecies about what Christ called the 'End of Times'. We are very fortunate because at present we are living in a time of an immense change from an era of chaos, confusion and darkness to an era of great Light and spiritual revival.

        'All kings occupying the Earth in the Kali Age, which, as I stated before, is our present era where great suffering and spiritual transformation are involved, will be wanting in tranquility, strong in anger, taking pleasure at all times in lying and dishonesty, inflicting death on women, children and cows, prone to take the paltry possessions of others, with character that is mostly tamas –darkness, ignorance-, rising to power and soon falling. They will be short-lived, ambitious, of little virtue and greedy. People will follow the customs of others

    and be adulterated with them; peculiar, undisciplined barbarians will be vigorously supported by rulers. Because they go on living with perversion, they will be ruined'.

        At the present time, we are dealing with this terrible situation. Totalitarian rulers, dictators are a common thing in this era, though some countries are experiencing a change in their governments towards democracy, mainly the communist and socialist countries where usually we could find a tremendous repression towards their inhabitants and also a great lack of freedom and democracy in them. Changes like these, must gradually take place on this World, preparing its inhabitants to understand and follow a real spiritual path based on the long forgotten Sanatana Dharma, which is the Eternal Spiritual Law dictated by the Almighty and which has to be followed forever word by word.

        Examples of these changes are the destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1989, which was a barrier separating East and West Berlin. The overthrow of premier Josep Bros Tito who established a Communist government in Yugoslavia full of chaos and terror for thirty five years. The dictatorial Communist regime in Poland from 1948 until 1989, was terminated by a transition to a real democracy. Idi Amin, terrible dictator, was overthrown in 1979. In 1957 Francois 'Papa Doc' Duvalier, became Haiti's President-For-Life. He ruled for thirty years with an iron hand and his regime finally ended in 1986. General Francisco Franco ruled Spain for 36 years using force and repression. After his

    death in 1975, Spain became a democratic republic once again. Augusto Pinochet, deposed democratically elected President Salvador Allende in 1973, and buried Chile's democracy for 16 years. Gracefully nowadays this is history and democracy reigned once again in Chile. In 1912 Anastasio Somoza came into power in Nicaragua. Corruption, torture, and wholesale murder of dissidents continued for 45 years. Fortunately, he was overthrown in 1979. Nowadays Rusia and China are modifying their political repressive government structure into a more democratic one. Most dictators gracefully are gone, though there are also some other cruel totalitarian leaders left in the World, so let us pray to God Almighty for the welfare of the World and so that its inhabitants reinforce their faith on God and get purification by the Supreme Light of God Almighty following a correct spiritual path.

        'And Dharma –the Divine Law- becomes very weak in the Kali Age and people commit sin in mind, speech, and actions… Quarrels, plague, fatal diseases, famines, drought, and calamities appear. Testimonies and proofs have no certainty. There is no criterion left when the Kali Age settles down. People become poorer in vigor and luster. They are wicked, full of anger, sinful, false, and avaricious. Bad ambitions, bad education, bad dealings, and bad earnings excite fear. The whole batch becomes greedy and untruthful'.

        Dharma –Divine Law- becomes weak in Kali Age. This is why at present, we can see so much darkness on this Earth –evilness, egoism, cruelty, hatred, lust,

    etc.- though as time goes by, Dharma will gain strength, so, in this way, the doors of spiritual liberation will open to us. We must try to be very strong in faith, love, devotion and surrender to the Almighty or to a fully realized Guru, because this will be of great help in order to attain such liberation.

        'There will arise various sects; sanyasins –renouncers- wearing clothes colored red. Many profess to have supreme knowledge because, thereby, they will easily earn their livelihood. In the Kali Age, there will be many false religionists. India will become desolate by repeated calamities, short lives, and various diseases. Everyone will be miserable, owing to the dominance of vice and Tamoguna –darkness of the soul-, lowest of the three qualities of nature-; people will freely commit abortion'.

        As I expressed before, many false Christs will emerge boasting to be the 'chosen ones' sent by God Almighty, in order to give us the adequate spiritual knowledge to become fully realized souls.

        'Earth will be valued only for her mineral treasures. Money alone will confer nobility. Power will be the sole definition of virtue. Pleasure will be the only reason for marriage. Lust will be the only reason for womanhood. Falsehood will win out in disputes. Being dry of water will be the only definition of land. Praise worthiness will be measured by accumulated wealth. Impropriety will be considered good conduct. Boldness and arrogance will be equivalent to scholarship. Only those without wealth will show honesty. Just a bath will

    amount to purification, and charity will be the only virtue. Abduction will be marriage. Simply to be well dressed will signify propriety. And any hard-to-reach water will be deemed a pilgrimage site. The pretense of greatness will be the proof of it, and powerful men with many severe faults, will rule over all the classes on Earth. Oppressed by their excessively greedy rulers, people will hide in valleys between mountains, where they will gather honey, vegetables, roots, fruits, birds, flowers and so forth. Suffering from cold, wind, heat and rain, they will put on clothes made of tree bark and leaves'.

        Money and power are two of the main values reigning on this Earth. We live in a society that is promoting sex and pleasure via television, radio, magazines, newspapers, ads and all communication means. We are ruled by corrupt politicians full of greed, lust and all type of flaws, whose main values and objectives are sex, money and power, supported by powerful people in physical and astral planes, whose souls are immersed into great darkness.

        In the near future great catastrophes will be present on this Earth making us to turn our eyes towards God, however I must clarify that humanity will not be completely destroyed.

        The Vishnu Purana emphasizes the elements of hope and renewal. After describing the iniquities of mankind in Kaliyuga, it speaks of the renovation that will occur when a portion of the Divinity who comprehends all, shall appear on Earth as a Divine Incarnation.

        Since long time ago, I had seen several times through clairvoyance that a Great Soul is already incarnated on Earth in order to give correction to the old spiritual paths given to humanity in the past and to reestablish the correct Sanatana Dharma, which is the Divine Spiritual Law that should guide us correctly to find liberation for our souls. It is a common belief that the Kalki Avatar, tenth incarnation of Vishnu, would come to Earth to reestablish the Sanatana Dharma, but definitely it is not so. The spiritual status of the Great Soul that I perceive through clairvoyance, and who will truly reestablish Dharma, is much greater than of Vishnu's. Besides, Vishnu is not a fully realized soul. By clairvoyance, many gifted people, most of them living in Santhigiri Ashram, can testify about this truth. This Great Soul is now living in South India and He has been sent by God Almighty to reestablish the lost and forgotten Spiritual Law that, without question, will lead us to spiritual liberation. His name is Navajyothisri Karunakara Guru and He obviously is a fully realized soul.
