The age in which we now live is called Kali yuga. What hides beneath these harsh words? Exactly this: harshness. There are two reasons why this age is so hard and harsh: firstly it is because iron is the most predominant metal present in nature, and secondly: our hearts are hard and cold like iron. There is very little mercy, compassion or love in Kali Yuga, which is proven by the following story…
For many years our family has spent a lot of time traveling. Today we are here, tomorrow there, all this makes it so that we feel at home everywhere. Recently, we’ve spent two weeks at our friend’s in Romania.
When we arrived at his house, it was 2 am, dark outside – although many heaps of snow gave off some light. I looked at the thermometer – minus 10, brrr….
We had to start unloading our most essential luggage. The rest we decided to take in the next morning. The first sleepyhead who decided to go out from the warm car was Satya. She went to throw out the trash which accumulated from the long journey. When Satya came back, she was completely awake. She shouted: “Mom, someone threw out little puppies to the trash!!! They are crying because it’s so cold… What should we do?!” What should we do – a good question! What can you do with little squeaking puppies in the middle of the night, in a foreign country?
I ran to the trash can with Satya and after a moment we held four stinky, one-week old baby dogs, which shook from the excessive cold. I simply couldn’t believe it. Someone threw out these little dogs to get rid of them! As if they were an unwanted item. A broken thing, some junk. They are alive! They are not a broken pot or a holey shoe. They are alive and want to live very much – they are squeaking, shaking and are very hungry. How could someone simply dispose of them in a container for trash and peacefully go to bed without any thought…?
It can only be the influence of Kali yuga. Does anyone still doubt the words which are written above?! Kali yuga really exists, it prevails in our hearts, our minds and lives.
Its presence all around leaves an impact on our every step, because there are many such stories nowadays. Many people may just shrug their arms: “What can you do with such dogs? I can’t afford keeping so many animals in my house.
Ok, nobody forces anyone to make a zoo in their home. There are already organizations which take care of such matters. We only need to make a small effort and have a bit of good will and compassion… Actually there is a simple solution to counteract this cold and irony influence…
