Due to the above mentioned sinful deeds, the age of Kaliyuga will be reduced to 5,000 years. All these things have been written by Mahapurush Achyutanand ji in his book ‘Uddhav Bhakti Pradayini’. In this, the conversation that takes place between Uddhava and Mahaprabhu Shri Krishna ji while answering the question asked by Uddhava about the end of Kali Yuga, Shri Krishna ji has clarified that:

चारि लक्ष अटे बतिस सहस्र आयुष कलियुग।

पाप बढिबारु आयु कटिजिब अलप होइब भोग।।

(‘Uddhav Bhakti Pradayini’ – Achyutananda)


The age of 4,32,000 years of Kali Yuga will be reduced to 5,000 years. During the conversation with Lord Shri Krishna in Dwapar Yuga, Arjuna questions Mahaprabhu Shri Krishna ji regarding the end of Kali Yuga, the establishment of Dharma and the incarnation of Lord Kalki. Lord Shri Krishna describes many pastimes to Arjuna, and Mahapurush Achyutanand Ji Maharaj has described the same things in his many texts like ‘Chaushathi Patal’, and ‘Neel Sundar Geeta’ etc.

Arjuna has asked Lord Shri Krishna ji that if the age of Kaliyuga was destined to be 4,32,000 years of total time and due to sins, Kaliyuga would decay to 5,000 years of enjoyment, then “O! Lord, now kindly tell us by which sinful deeds, how much the age of Kaliyuga will be destroyed”.

Lord Shri Krishna mainly describes the impact of various sinful deeds on age of Kaliyuga :-

In this way the age of Kaliyuga will be reduced (by 4,27,000 years) from 4,32,000 years to just 5,000 years. 

The above statements, various vedic scriptures (e.g. Shastras, Puranas) and Bhavishya Malika provide proof that due to many sinful deeds, the age of the era is reduced and the age of this Kaliyuga will also be reduced to 5,000 years. Also, according to the calculation described in the Shastra Purana, the current Kaliyuga is running for 5,125 years, which means that the Kaliyuga is already completely over.
