Hindu: "The Coming of the Great Avatar and the Return of the Golden Age"

According to one of the most Sacred Hindu scriptures, the Srimad Bhagavatam, at the end of the Dark Age of Kali Yuga, the tenth and final Maha Avatara (Great Avatar), Kalki will appear. An Avatar in the Hindu tradition is revered as a person who has voluntarily entered the mortal realms with extraordinary abilities to assist them in their duty to teach Universal Truths to humanity.

The emergence of Lord Kalki as the incarnation of Lord Vishnu the Preserver will occur "[w]henever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice... and a predominant rise of irreligion...”. The Kalki Purana speaks of Lord Kalki as appearing with blue skin on a white horse with a sword in hand and he will travel the world with his army of devotees to annihilate the wicked and impure “like a blazing comet” and destroy Adharma (that which contradicts the laws of the Universe). The end of the age of Kali Yuga marks the beginning of Satya Yuga, the Golden Age of Truth, Wisdom and Virtue.

Accounts of the coming of Kalki Avatara

"Those who are demons, those who are sinful, nature's law is to place him in such condition that he will become more and more a demon so that he will never be able to understand what is God. This is nature's law. If you want to forget God, then God will put you in such a condition that you can never understand what is God. That is demonic life. That time is also coming. At the present moment, still a few men are interested, what is God. Arto artharti jijnasu jnani. But time is coming ahead when there will be no sense to understand God. That is the last stage of Kali-yuga, and at that time Kalki avatara, Kalki avatara will come. At that time there is no preaching of God consciousness, simply killing, simply killing. Kalki avatara with His sword will simply massacre. Then again Satya-yuga will come. Again golden age will come." (Srila Prabhupada Lecture, 08-06-73, London)

"The next avatar incarnation is Kalki. That is yet to take place. Kalki avatara will appear at the end of this age, Kali- yuga. The age of Kali-yuga, duration of this age is still to be, I mean to say, fulfilled in 400,000's of years. So at the end of Kali, that means at the last stage, after about 400,000's of years, the incarnation of Kali will appear. That is predicted in the Vedic literatures, as Lord Buddha's appearance was also predicted in the Srimad-Bhagavatam. And Srimad-Bhagavatam was compiled five thousand years ago, and Lord Buddha appeared about 2,500 years ago. Therefore about Lord Buddha's appearance it is predicted that at the beginning of Kali-yuga Lord Buddha will appear. There was prediction, and that has actually come to be true. Similarly, there is prediction about Kalki avatara, and that will also come to be true. So at that time Lord Kalki's business will be simply to kill. No instruction. Just like... In Bhagavad- gita Lord Krsna gave instruction in the shape of Bhagavad-gita. But at the end of Kali-yuga, people will be so much degraded that there is no more possibility to give any instruction. They will not be able to understand even. At that time the only weapon will be to kill them. And one who is killed by the Lord, he also gets salvation. That is God's all-merciful quality. Either He protects or He kills, the result is the same. So that will be the last stage of this Kali-yuga, and after that, again Satya-yuga, the age of religiosity, will begin. These are the statements of Vedic literature." (Srila Prabhupada Lecture, 02-18-70, Los Angeles)

The Srimad Bhagavatam also talks of a time during Kali Yuga “where even demigods and denizens of the higher planetary systems desire to take birth. This period, which started about 500 years ago with the appearance of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, will last for 10,000 years. It is said that in this period the influences of the Kali Yuga will be counteracted by the pure devotees of the Lord. Their weapon will be the nama-sankirtana or devotional chanting of the name, and with this they will reverse the influences of Kali yuga. Those people who are fortunate to come in contact with these devotees, and take up devotional service themselves will find it very easy to go back to Godhead.”
