I offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Achyuta (Sri Krishna),
The unborn, omniscient, and unlimited Supreme Personality of Godhead,
Who is the destroyer of all obstacles, the shelter of all living entities, and the original speaker of the Vedic Literature.
He is worshiped with great devotion by the demigods, headed by Indra, the foremost of sages, and by the rulers of the various planetary systems, for the purpose of attaining all kinds of perfection in life.
– Kalki Purana 1.1
May the Supreme Personality of Godhead, having assumed the form of Kalki, who is the Supersoul of all living entities, establish the eternal principles of religion, having appeared in a family of wise brahmana scholars.
He will annihilate the sinful kings of Kali Yuga by the fire emanating from His ferocious sword in his hands, while riding on the back of an
excellent horse. In this way, He will protect the pious and re-establish Satya Yuga.
– Kalki Purana 1.3
Lord Kalki said: O Sankara (Lord Shiva), you are the Oldest of the Devas, the husband of Gauri, the lord of the universe, the only protector of the living entities, and the shelter of everyone.
Your neck is decorated with the serpent, Vasuki, you have three eyes and five heads, you are always absorbed in transcendental ecstasy, and you award liberation to your devotees, I offer my obeisances unto you.
You are the lord of mystic yoga and the destroyer of lusty desires.
Your form is fearful to behold, your head is always wet with the water of The Ganges, the matted hair on your head looks most enchanting,
your forehead is decorated with a mark of the crescent moon, and you are the personification of Maha-Kaala (Time).
I offer my obeisances unto you.
– Kalki Purana 3.14 – 15
Worship of Sri Bhagavan is a limb of pure devotional service, and it includes meditation upon Hari, and the chanting of His mantras.
Discussions of Lord Hari are always very pleasing to the ears and heart.
– Kalki Purana 7.3
I meditate on the lotus feet of Lord Hari, which are decorated with varieties of precious jewels, which resemble the feet of a swan, and which
are decorated with tinkling ankle bells. His garments hang till His lotus feet, and it appears like a flag flapping in the wind.
His lotus feet are adorned with three golden bangles.
I meditate on Lord Hari’s lotus feet, which are the color of the Blue Sapphire worn by Garuda. Just as the beak of Garuda is reddish, so the toenails of the Lord are tinged with a pinkish hue. The Lord’s lotus feet thus increase the beauty of the lower portion of His body, and are very pleasing to the eyes of His Devotees.
– Kalki Purana 7.12 – 13
(The Full Set of Prayers to Shri Hari is given in the rest of Chapter 7 of Kalki Purana)
I am a fallen soul who is devoid of devotional service to You, as prescribed in the Vedic Literature.
My body is filled with sinful propensities, and is a reservoir of miser. I am under the control of greed, lamentation, and illusion, and thus overwhelmed by mental agony.
О Lord Vasudeva, kindly Deliver Me, by Your Merciful Glance!
– Kalki Purana 7.26
They said: If you have seen something amazing, then tell us!
Now, while telling, you can break your Ekadasi Vow.
To this, I replied: My dear friends, I have not seen or heard anything wonderful at all…

Their names were Jaya and Vijaya, and both possessed outstanding strength and prowess.

Some of the warriors retreated and some felt thirsty and so begged for water.
In this way, the mleccha soldiers scattered after being attacked by Lord Kalki’s army.

In this way, Lord Kalki, the performer of very wonderful pastimes, defeated the Mlechhas and Buddhist Atheists after a fierce battle.
By His causeless mercy, the slain Mlecchas and defeated Buddhist Atheists, returned to the Spiritual Abode of the Supreme Lord (Vaikuntha), and their wives also attained Liberation (Moksha), such is his mercy!

There are fourteen Manus who appear in one day of Brahma.
They are Svayambhuva, Svarocisa, Uttama, Tamasa, Raivata, Caksusa,
Vaivasvata, Savarni, Daksa Savarni, Brahma Savarni, Dharma Savarni,
Rudra Savarni, Loka Visruta, Veda Savarni, and Indra Savarni.
These Manus are fragmental parts of Your supreme opulence.
They assume various names and forms, just to carry out their respective duties.
Twelve thousand years of the demigods is the duration of the four yugas on earth. The duration of Satya-yuga is four thousand Divine Years, Treta-yuga is three thousand Divine Years, Dvapara-yuga is two thousand Divine Years, and Kali-yuga is one thousand Divine Years.
The transitional periods of the four yugas are four hundred, three hundred, two hundred, and one hundred Divine Years, respectively.
In this way, the total comes to twelve thousand Divine Years.
The duration of the reign of each Manu is seventy-one cycles of the four yugas. Fourteen Manus reign during one day of Brahma.
This is also the duration of Brahma’s night. In this way, Brahma passes his days, nights, fortnights, months, seasons, and years, until the duration of his allotted time is over. Brahma lives for one hundred years and after death, he merges into Your existence.
After the final dissolution of the universe, Brahma once again is born from Your lotus navel.
– Kalki Purana 19.7 – 16
Just as the moon looks very beautiful in the midst of innumerable stars,
Similarly Lord Kalki, the King of Kings, appeared glorious in the midst of that royal assembly.
– Kalki Purana 24.33
The devotees always think of Lord Hari, sing His holy names, and engage in menial service for His satisfaction.
By engaging in devotional service in this way, the devotees feel transcendental pleasure!
The devotees dance in ecstasy, cry, laugh, and roll on the ground, and while doing so, they completely forget themselves.
Pure devotees never discriminate, but rather see everyone equally on the spiritual platform.
– Kalki Purana 25.41 – 42
Food that is pure, juicy, and nutritious, and that has been offered to Lord Vishnu, is considered to be in the Mode of Goodness.
Food that is prepared with only the satisfaction of the senses in mind, and which is intended to increase one’s blood and stamina, and enhance one’s duration of life, is considered to be in the Mode of Passion.
Food that is bitter, spicy, hot, sour, stale, burnt, dry, or rotten is considered to be in the Mode of Ignorance. Only people deeply imbedded in the mode of ignorance will relish such food.
– Kalki Purana 25.47 – 49
People in the Mode of Goodness like to reside in the forest, or all Alone.
People in the Mode of Passion like to reside in a city or village.
And people in the Mode of Ignorance like to be in gambling casinos and brothels.
– Kalki Purana 25.50

All your endeavors are made under the direction of my Maya, but if you free yourself from this influence of Maya, you can attain a higher platform of existence.

– Kalki Purana 33.4 – 5
The demigods said: О Lord of Lords! О master of the demigods!
О worshipable Lord of the living entities! О unlimited Personality of Godhead, everything is present within You!
Your bodily effulgence has made everything visible.
О Lord of the universe, You are like the blazing fire that burns the dry straw of our sinful reactions to ashes.
All glories unto You.
All the universes have emanated from the pours of You body.
Your complexion is the color of a dark blue rain cloud.
Your chest is adorned with the Kaustubha gem, appearing like the full moon illuminating a dark cloud.
О Lord Hari, we and our wives take shelter of You, and so please protect us.
О master of the universe, if You would like to display Your compassion for us then return to the transcendental abode in Vaikuntha with Us!
Truthfulness has now prevailed within the world and so people will follow religious principles without hindrance.
