We’re just coming out of Kali Yuga, the age of materialism, into Dwapara Yuga, the age of energy. Our five avatars have manifested at this time in order to help with this transition. We’re very fortunate to have been drawn into their orbit.
What are the religious differences between Kali Yuga and Dwapara Yuga? Kali Yuga is the age of solid matter and consequently religion and its institutions appear fixed and solid. When you visit the great cathedrals you see big, heavy buildings. During a materialistic age worshipers follow prescribed prayers and rituals designed to please the Lord so He, much like a king or judge, will grant their wishes.
In this age of Dwapara Yuga, the heaviness of materialism and institutionalism has given way to energy. True religion is seeking inner communion with God.
We don’t need stained glass, high spires, and a standard book of prayer. All we need is a quiet place to meditate, to go within and, in the stillness of deep inner communion, to realize that we are but an extension of God’s consciousness and energy.
