“God’s light is within you, It never leaves you.”

Kalidasa Avatar
Before him stood Ma Kali, and she inquired, “What do you seek?”

Perplexed, the man initially paid little heed, though he halted his self-destructive intent.

Her voice echoed again, “O devoted one, what is your heart’s desire?”

This time, her words penetrated the barriers of his comprehension. He replied, “I seek intelligence.”

Devi smiled, her divine presence radiant, and queried, “And what purpose shall this intelligence serve?”

Startled, he faltered momentarily, unable to articulate why he craved intelligence. With uncertainty, he answered, “I will learn… read… write.”

Impressed by his innocence, Devi responded, “Emavastu!”

Legends do not emerge from the womb; they are forged in the crucible of life’s trials, in the face of adversity, nurtured by austere experiences. Legends are born of Yoga, of inner transformation. It was during this moment that the greatest poetic legend of ancient Bharat, Mahakavi, meaning ‘supreme poet,’ Kalidasa, came into being.

The blessing bestowed upon Kalidasa marked a profound turning point in his life, altering its course irrevocably.

Kalidasa is a celebrated poet and playwright in classical Sanskrit literature. As an avatar of Brahma, Kalidasa’s works on love, beauty, and the human experience have left a lasting impact on Indian literature and culture. His most famous works include plays like Abhijnana Shakuntalam and poems like Meghaduta and Kumarasambhava. He is also known as the “Shakespeare of India.” Read his full story on avatars of Brahma, India’s greatest Yogis.



The Legend of Kalidas
Kalidas is considered to be one of the greatest Indian literary personalities of all time, and his works form the cornerstone of Indian mythology. Little is known about his personal life, but legends abound. He is known to be familiar with Greek Astronomy, and has used a few Greek terms in his work. According to one such popular legend, Kalidas wasn’t always so wise and learned. In fact, there was a time he was considered to be one of the stupidest people in the kingdom!
One sunny day, Kalidas was sitting on a branch of a tree, trying to saw it off. But the dimwitted man was sitting on the wrong end of the branch, so when he finally sawed through the branch, down he tumbled! This act of sheer stupidity was observed by some shrewd pundits minister passing by.

Now these pundits wanted to play a trick on the arrogant princess, to teach her a lesson. She was determined to marry someone who would defeat her in a debate about the scriptures. The princess had heaped considerable abuse on them over a period of time, and they were determined to extract their revenge. So, when they chanced upon Kalidas, they decided to present him to the queen as a suitable match for her.

In order to conceal his stupidity, the pundits asked Kalidas to pretend that he was a great sage, who was observing a vow of silence. Kalidas readily agreed, and they presented him to the queen, saying that Kalidas would only communicate by way of gestures. When the queen asked Kalidas a few questions to test his intelligence, Kalidas gesticulated wildly and the astute pundits ‘interpreted’ these gestures as extremely witty answers and retorts. The princess was suitably impressed, and the couple was married without much delay.

Kalidas’s stupidity could be concealed for only so long, and the night of the wedding Kalidas blurted out something inane. The princess realized that she had married a prize fool. Furious, she threw him out of her palace, and her life.

The dejected Kalidas wandered around, till he came to the bank of the river. He contemplated taking his life when he suddenly saw some women washing clothes on the edge of the river bank. He observed that the stones which the women were pounding with clothes, were smooth and rounded, while the other stones were rough and ragged. This observation hit him like a thunderbolt, and it dawned upon him that if stones could be worn through and change their shape by being pounded upon by clothes, then why couldn’t his thick brains change, by being pounded upon by knowledge!

Kalidas thus grew determined to become the wisest and most learned man in the country, and to achieve this end he started indulging in intellectual pastimes, reading, meditating and praying to his goddess Kali to grant him divine knowledge. His wish was fulfilled.

Kalidas’s contribution to Indian literature is tremendous. Though his writings were in Sanskrit, they have been translated into numerous languages. While numerous writings have been attributed to him, only seven works are proved to be genuinely his.

Malavikaagnimitra (Malavikaa and Agnimitra)
Vikramorvashiiya (The story of Urvashi and Pururavas)
Abhigyanashakuntala (Shakuntala)
Of these plays, Kalidas is best known for the play Shakuntala, which has gone on to receive worldwide attention. Shakuntala was first translated into English, then into German, and then into several other western languages. The other four works were poems.


Kalki Avatar storyDue to the dominance of Brahmanism at the beginning of Kali Yuga, the catastrophic decline of Hindu society was increasing due to the strong influence of caste and untouchability. Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who introduced the name Krishna to protect the traditional Hindu religion from this decay, descended in the form of Kalki on the new island of Saparshad.

Apart from mentioning Kalki as an Avatar in the Puranas, it has also been described. He will revive the truth by ending the darkness and destructive times. According to Hinduism, the tenth incarnation of Vishnu will bring an end to the Kali Yuga. Kali Yuga is one of the four Yugas (Satya, Treta, Dwapar, Kali). Kalki is also known as “Kalkin”. According to Hindu theology, the end of Kali Yuga in the last cycle of existence, the arrival of a new Satya Yuga – messenger. He will remove iniquity and bring the age of truth and it is known that he will descend on the earth by boarding the back of the white horse with the open sword in his hand.

The name Kalki comes from “Kal” which means “time”. According to Brockington, Kalki’s lexical meaning is “dirty sinner”. In the Puranas, he is described as a Brahmin warrior and Brahmakshatriya.

The Kalki Purana is probably the smallest recent text of the eighteenth century (18) written in Bengali. According to historical events, the idea of Kalki dates back to 1500 to 1700 (1500-1700) AD. According to the Kalki Purana, Kalki married Padmavati, the daughter of Brahdrath of Sinhala. Kalki started a new era and gained heaven by great fighting against evil forces.

About birth and arrival of Kalki Avatar:
The cyclical concept of time is estimated to have lasted from 400,000 to 432,000 (400000-432,000) years. But the Vaishnava scriptures speak of bringing an end to the Kali Yuga (evil and wicked) and appearing on the white horse on the day of “doom” for the future. There are various controversies regarding the biography of Kalki. Some manuscripts mention that Kalki will be born in Abedjis Dini and Bishenjun’s family. It is also known from some manuscripts that he was born in the family of Sumati and Vishnu.

In Buddhist manuscripts, Vishnu is mentioned as one of the prominent chiefs of a village called Sambhal. He will be the builder of all barbarians and bandits, ending “iniquity.” Religion will be replaced again, then everything will be transformed into humanity and the golden age will begin.”According to the subsequence of history, this is known that Kalki and Kali are related to the battle of Asura and in defeating Asura he will ride a white horse named “Devadatta”, finish evil or food. Purify everyone’s mind and consciousness and start the age of truth.

According to the present history:
Many so-called gods can be heard in Kali Yuga. Some say that life is God, some say that the poor are God, some say that a person who knows something perfect is also God. In Kali Yuga, only one-fourth of the religion will remain. Under the influence of the present and religion, that remaining part will continue to decline and will eventually be destroyed. But there are still some virtuous people who are prophesied in Srimad-Bhagavatam: “In this age of strife and injustice and deception, religion, truth, forgiveness, mercy, longevity, strength and memory will be gradually eroded.

At one point, human beings will gradually turn into an animal. When no one will utter Harekrishna under the influence of Kali, will not worship Krishna, man will be a complete sinner. Towards the end of Kali Yuga, people will forget the path indicated by the Vedas. Meaningless bloodshed, bloodshed, and violence will be the main livelihood of the people. Family ties will disappear, there will be no place for devotion in home life, corruption will spread all around.In the deep dark of Kali, when the bandits will spread all over the world, Sri Hari in the form of an avatar of Kalki would ride on the white horse and kill them with a weapon. As soon as they would be killed, the rest of the people will feel the fragrance flowing in the air from the divine part of Lord Kalki. Immediately they will become divinely holy. They will make a huge population on earth. Then the children with human qualities will be born into human society and true age will begin.

☺In the third chapter of the twelfth volume of Srimad-Bhagavatam, Shukadev Goswami says that in Kali Yuga, even though there is a sea of sin, there is a great quality which is – “Kirtanadeva Krishnasya Mukta Sangah Par: Brajet” – Only by chanting Krishna Mahamantra (Hare Krishna), all can be freed from the bondage of this world and return to God effortlessly.
Therefore, in order to protect Hindu society from the present impermanence, it is our duty to unite under the auspices of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu irrespective of caste, creed, and creed.
