Query: Scriptures state Kali Yuga still has thousands of years to go, but on the other
hand you are saying it might end around 2012? Which is
It seems I need to explain the doctrine of Anekantavada of Jainism and
also the theory of relativity by Albert Einstein! The doctrine of Anekantavada of Jainism is a very unique
concept! As per the doctrine of Anekantavada of Jainism... it is quite possible that various versions of the
same concept hold truth. How?
This concept was best explained by Mahavira... The 24 Tirthankara of
Jainism! It so happened that once Mahavira (who was deeply engrossed in thoughts) could not be traced in the
house. When friends of Mahavira enquired from his mother about the whereabouts of Mahavira... the mother said
Mahavira is a floor above! The mother was standing on the ground floor.
Unable to still find Mahavira... all friends ventured to the second floor
where sat the father of Mahavira. All the friends enquired from his father about the whereabouts of Mahavira.
He replied that Mahavira was a floor below. How could it be possible that at the same time Mahavira was a
floor above and also a floor below?
This concept is best explained by the doctrine of Anekantavada of
Jainism! A person walking on the street was addressed by one as Uncle, by the other as Dad, by the third as
son and so on! How could it be possible that at the same time one person assumes so many identities! All were
correct. The parents of Mahavira were also correct.
If the sacred scriptures state that we still have hundreds of thousands
of years before the start of Kali Yuga... they are perfectly in order! During the earlier times when science
was still in infancy... it was pure guesswork based on wisdom that the dates for the Kali Yuga were deduced
by Saints and sages of that era.
With passage of time... science advanced phenomenally! If during the time
of Lord Krishna the war was fought with bows and arrows... we do not intend to fight our neighboring
countries in present times with bows and arrows! We need to interpolate the sacred texts in terms of the
advancements in science.
Whatever was predicted thousands of years ago to happen in millions of
years... it is quite possible that the same happens a few years from now! Based on this surmise and the
advancements of science... the Kali Yuga that was to precipitate hundreds of thousand years later has already
precipitated! We are presently passing through the ghor Kali Yuga phase of life!
We shall be shortly entering the phase of Chatham Chatta as expressed in
Jainism scriptures! This is the period of reconnaissance... a total upheaval of the society! Chatham Chatta
practically means a fight to death... a period in the history of mankind when everyone has to cater for self!
With no reprieve in sight... it is time for a complete revolution... a complete overhaul of the
It is during the times of Chatham Chatta mankind witnesses the fiercest
war of the present era... a full scale nuclear war between Christianity and Islamic Dharma! None on Mother
Earth can avoid this phase of life! It is imperative... in absence of the same the dawn of the new era... the
golden era is simply not possible! The clock just cannot jump from 4 a.m. to 6 a.m.
The concept of Kali Yuga is not simply a statement... something written
in the scriptures! World over the present society has almost become unlivable! The faith amongst each other
at its lowest ebb... it has become difficult to differentiate human beings from animals! The worst is yet to
come! The moment worst phase of ghor Kali Yuga starts... it shall announce start of world war 3!
On the practical side the doctrine of Anekantavada is directly related to
the theory of relativity as explained by Albert Einstein! The famous physicist Albert Einstein simply stated
that everything in the cosmic system is supposed to be measured in relative terms! If two trains are
traveling alongside at speeds of 60 and 70 kilometers per hour... the people traveling in the faster train
would feel the other train moving backwards at 10 kilometers per hour.
The concept of relativity... the doctrine of Anekantavada in Jainism is
not difficult to understand! The moment we learn the art of deciphering the texts of the sacred scriptures in
terms of the advancements of science taking place today... all becomes clear by itself! Life in the cosmic
domain is not as complex as human beings consider it to be.
It is when our ego, the wanton desires and materialistic riches dominate
our daily routines of life... the spiritual world seems unfathomable!
May God bless all!
