Vedas, Puranas and Upanishads are important scriptures in Hinduism and the things written on them are quite significant. A lot of research work has been done on them, on various areas written in these texts. The predictions which were made many centuries ago in important texts like Bhavishya Purana, are turning out to be true today. We can say that our scriptures are the basis, which provide a better path to the world. One of these texts is the Kalki Purana, in which it is written that in Kaliyuga, when the sins will increase, the Lord will take incarnation as Kalki and destroy the sinners and establish a righteous order once again. After this, once again love and bonding will increase among the people of the world.
Even in the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna has said that whenever there is decline of dharma, and a simultaneous increase in adharma and the evil ways, then he incarnates to restore and re-establish the dharma. The Kalki incarnation of God will be in the period of Kaliyuga and Satyuga. It is said that since childhood, Lord Kalki will do leelas like Lord Krishna, which will amaze everyone. It is worth mentioning here that the Kalki Purana is one of the main religious and mythological texts of the Hindus. Herein, Lord Vishnu will take birth as the tenth and final incarnation of Kalki in the house of a Brahmin named Vishnuyash at a place called Sambhal in Moradabad district of Uttar Pradesh. This incarnation will happen during the end of Kali Yuga. Let us tell you here that the first phase of Kaliyug is going on right now.

Kaliyuga Is More Fruitful For Chanting, Austerity And Devotion
In Kaliyuga, sin will prevail and it is happening. But despite this, Maharishi Ved Vyas has mentioned Kaliyuga as the best. He has said that in Satyuga one attains virtue after chanting for 10 years, in Treta and Dwapara Yuga, one year’s penance gives the same result, whereas in Kaliyuga only one day’s penance can yield that fruit, but even then humans have no time for this. Overall, Kaliyuga is the time when people can make the most with (they can grow karmically) less but due to the corrupting evil influences most people do not do that.
