Hindu Prophecies

"Whenever there is decay of righteousness... and there is exaltation of unrighteousness,
then I Myself come forth... for the destruction of evil-doers, for the sake of firmly establishing
righteousness, I am born from age to age."
--- KRISHNA- Bhagavad Gita- fourth discourse

All the Hindu scriptures are agreed that when conditions have reached this point, when things have deteriorated and mankind has sunk to the lowest depths of moral degradation, then the Lord will again manifest Himself as the Kalki Avatar... when Vedic religion and the dharma of the law books have nearly ceased and the Kalki Yuga is almost exhausted, then a part of the creator of the entire universe, the blessed Lord Vasudeva [Vishnu], will become incarnate here in the universe in the form of Kalki.

Baha'i scholars have demonstrated that the prophecies in the Manu Srmiti and other books indicate the exact date of the end of the kalki Yuga and the coming of the Kalki Avatar. This date, 1844, is also the year of the beginning of the Baha'i Faith. Therefore Baha'is believe that, faithful to the promises and prophecies recorded in the Hindu holy books, the Lord has now manifested Himself again in the form of the Kalki Avatar. Baha'is believe that, this is the Baha'u'llah.
The purpose of the Baha'u'llah's coming is to fulfill the prophecies in the Hindu scriptures and to give us the teachings that will bring in the new Sat or Krta Yuga (golden age) as foretold in the Vishnu Purana. He will then establish righteousness upon the earth and the minds of the people will be awakened and become as pure as crystal. And these men, the remnant of mankind, will thus be transformed... And these offspring will follow the ways of the Krta Age.
Baha'is believe that through the teachings of Baha'u'llah, these prophecies will be fulfilled. As a result the Sat or Krta Yuga
(golden age) will be established.
