    There is one Shabad in Gurbani that describes the fact: Time is not changed, it is people's mind that is changed. The state of mind makes the yugg-time, Time does't change itself. A friend of mine once said: "kaliyug is a pretty good scapegoat for our own failiours". Any thing bad happens, we say it is kaliyugg.

    In the Following Shabad Guru Ji tells:

    English Translation:
    Raamkalee, First Mehl, Ashtapadees:
    One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
    The same moon rises, and the same stars; the same sun shines in the sky.
    The earth is the same, and the same wind blows. The age in which we dwell affects living beings, but not these places. ||1||
    Give up your attachment to life.
    Those who act like tyrants are accepted and approved - recognize that this is the sign of the Dark Age of Kali Yuga. ||1||Pause||
    Kali Yuga has not been heard to have come to any country, or to be sitting at any sacred shrine.
    It is not where the generous person gives to charities, nor seated in the mansion he has built. ||2||
    If someone practices Truth, he is frustrated; prosperity does not come to the home of the sincere.
    If someone chants the Lord's Name, he is scorned. These are the signs of Kali Yuga. ||3||
    Whoever is in charge, is humiliated. Why should the servant be afraid,
    when the master is put in chains? He dies at the hands of his servant. ||4||
    Chant the Praises of the Lord; Kali Yuga has come.
    The justice of the previous three ages is gone. One obtains virtue, only if the Lord bestows it. ||1||Pause||
    In this turbulent age of Kali Yuga, Muslim law decides the cases, and the blue-robed Qazi is the judge.
    The Guru's Bani has taken the place of Brahma's Veda, and the singing of the Lord's Praises are good deeds. ||5||
    Worship without faith; self-discipline without truthfulness; the ritual of the sacred thread without chastity - what good are these?
    You may bathe and wash, and apply a ritualistic tilak mark to your forehead, but without inner purity, there is no understanding. ||6||
    In Kali Yuga, the Koran and the Bible have become famous.
    The Pandit's scriptures and the Puraanas are not respected.
    O Nanak, the Lord's Name now is Rehmaan, the Merciful.
    Know that there is only One Creator of the creation. ||7||
    Nanak has obtained the glorious greatness of the Naam, the Name of the Lord. There is no action higher than this.
    If someone goes out to beg for what is already in his own home, then he should be chastised. ||8||1||

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
