Remedy for the Age of Kali

The Srimad Bhagavatam, spoken 5,000 years ago accurately predicted the symptoms in the current age of Kali, also known as the age of quarrel and hypocrisy. However, this age has also received special benediction by the merciful Supreme Personality of Godhead, to make it very easy for us to return back home, back to Godhead.

SB 1.1.10

prayenalpayusah sabhya kalav 
asmin yuge janah mandah
sumanda-matayo manda
bhagya hy upadrutah

TRANSLATION

O learned one, in this iron age of Kali men have but short lives. They are quarrelsome, lazy, misguided, unlucky and, above all, always disturbed. [Sukadeva Goswami]

SB 12.2.6

dure vary-ayanam tirtham
lavanyam kesa-dharanam udaram-bharata
svarthah satyatve dharstyam eva hi daksyam
kutumba-bharanam yaso 'rthe dharma-sevanam

TRANSLATION

A sacred place will be taken to consist of no more than a reservoir of water located at a distance, and beauty will be thought to depend on one's hairstyle. Filling the belly will become the goal of life, and one who is audacious will be accepted as truthful. He who can maintain a family will be regarded as an expert man, and the principles of religion will be observed only for the sake of reputation. [Sukadeva Goswami]

SB 12.3.51

kaler dosa-nidhe rajan
asti hy eko mahan gunah
kirtanad eva krsnasya
mukta-sangah param vrajet

TRANSLATION

My dear King, although Kali-yuga is an ocean of faults, there is still one good quality about this age; simply by chanting the Hare Krishna mahamantra one can become free from material bondage and be promoted to the transcendental kingdom. [Sukadeva Goswami]

SB 12.3.52

krte yad dhyayato visnum
tretayam yajato makhaih
dvapare paricaryayam kalau
tad dhari-kirtanat

TRANSLATION

Whatever result was obtained in Satya-yuga be meditating on Visnu, in Treta-yuga by performing sacrifices and in Dvapara-yuga by serving the Lord' s feet can be obtained in Kali-yuga simply by chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. [Sukadeva Goswami]

CC Adi 17.22

kali-kale nama-rupe krsna-avatara nama haite haya sarva-jagat-nistara

TRANSLATION

In this Age of Kali, the holy name of the Lord, the Hare Krsna maha-mantra, is the incarnation of Lord Krsna. Simply by chanting the holy name, one associates with the Lord directly. Anyone who does this is certainly delivered.
