Kali-yuga: no culture, aristocracy, education, or knowledge

    Posted on November 12, 2017

So aristocracy and respectability, these things were according to culture, according to education. But nowadays, what is that? Vittam eva kalau nrnam. If you get money somehow or other, then everything is there. You may be a third-class, fourth-class, tenth-class man, but if you get money some way or other, then you are very respectable. There is no question of your culture or aristocracy or education or knowledge. There is no, nothing. This is Kali-yuga. And then, dharma-nyaya-vyavasthayam karanam balam eva hi. And if you have got some influence, strength, then in your favor everything will be decided.

Srila Prabhupada; lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.15.46 — Los Angeles, December 24, 1973
