Signs of kali yuga is more bad, less good, bad increase, good decrease and finally lost.

Signs of kali yuga is not only based on wars of country or climate change, even in a family most of the kids dont care for parents and have cheated their spouse and kids are growing in drugs even in school days. there is gang rape and boys befriending girls only to f*** her when possible. all these things im seeing in real life and change is evident. the evidence is compelling and those who dont follow 5 precepts still are lost in darkness.



in that video, the hindu preiest says doing meditation and entering peaceful states are just bluff as they are very tough in todays world. he also says in todays world even dog wont listen to the master let alone humans escaping from worldy distractions. we are over estimating and not really doing tapas (purify karma). he also says dont waste this human life as there is principle and teaching of purifying karma in todays world and dont waste as we dont know when god will give human birth again. he also says brahma sent us to this world to earn merit and return back.

The popularity of the no self doctrine is a sign of the Yali Yuga.

Oh good, it's tamil language. In my past life perhaps I was born in Tamil Nadu, but today I don't speak Tamil anymore.
Why bother to host this video when you cannot provide tranlation? No, I am not blaming you or feeling annoy but I am really curious . On the top of that I really like to read about Kali Yuga, while I read about Kali Yuga I often wonder if we are always trying to take what is happening today to fit in to the what Kali Yuga mentioned, we sort of discard those that don't fit in so the whole picture appear as if what Kali Yuga predict is true.
Could you post the same one again with a translation(good translation if possible)?

Metta, metta,
I think v should not give any thoughts to kali yuga as wise will work hard in whatever yuga he is in. Btw kali yuga is best mentioned in hindu scriptures than buddhist
