Kalki, A Prophetic Vision

Poetry Index

Kalki is believed to be the tenth incarnation of Maha Vishnu. According to the Puranas he will appear at the end of time to destroy evil and restore order to herald a new golden age upon earth. The following poem is based upon a vision of Kalki in which he appeared as a cosmic being who will incarnate upon earth far in future to save the world from the tyranny of darkness and restore order to herald a new age of unprecedented psychic powers and incredible discoveries.

And the goddess appeared and said, "Be prepared,
O sleeping children of God's shattered dream.
The coming incarnation of God will be a Great Master
of Knowledge, infused with the golden dust of dreams.
He will roll the universe as if it were a parchment, and
drink from the cup of Time as if he invented miracles.
Riding on the back of star powered winds he will take
you on an infinite cosmic journey into the mysteries
of the universe which none has ever seen or heard.
He is being forged by the wondrous gods of antiquity
in the secret cave of the universe. His time is yet to come.
But when he arrives on the placid plains of the verdant earth,
with the sword of love and a gaze filled with the brilliance of
myriad suns, remember it will not be to destroy this world,
but to recreate it anew in the vision of God. He will come
with the body of a human as his shining robe but with pure
intelligence, which will be forever his gift for the rest to follow.
Master of the Self and Lord of the universe, with pure
conscoiusness woven into the fabric of soul, pulsating with life,
he will soak the world with his golden aura and cleanse it.
Stories will be written and legends will be hewn in his name,
as he of the cosmic dawn will herald a new epoch upon earth
to steer the world far beyond what human mind can conceive.
