Cause of Apocalypse(Pralaya) in Bhagvata Purana

Maitreya continued, ' Great sages*, Bramha's sons Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatana, SanatKumara, Narada, Ribhu, Hamsa, Aruna and Yati never married, but were celibates all their lives.

A different meaning of word 'sage': An archetype born in every Manvantara in Bhagvata Purana, for the purpose of creation. These are high posts pre-declared and it's not that anyone earns a merit to become a Saptarishi in any Manvantara itself. It shows inter-Kalpa Karmic relations as well.

Irreligion is Adharma(evil.) It's also a son of Bramha(Righteousness;religiosity;Dharma is also son of Bramha) Adharma's wife Mrisha{falsehood[Mithya(Hindi), Myth(English)]}, bore him twins: Dambha(hypocrisy)


Nirriti, the evil spirit rules the southwest. Has no children. Had adopted twins, who later became a couple when Dambha married Maya.

Nirriti(against riti) is Alaxmi(lack of prosperity) the goddess of nakshtra Mula, guided by the Sun located in the galactic core.

Dambha married Maya

They gave birth to Lobha::Greed and Nikriti::Wickedness.

So, in plain English: Hypocrisy marries Deceit to give birth to Greed and Wickedness(they're twins.) 

These in turn begot Krodha(anger) and Himsa(violence)

These gave birth to Kali(rage:Kolaveri Di){hence this age is Kaliyuga--age of apocalypto} and his sister Durukti(abusiveness personified)

Kali got Bhaya(fear), and Mrityu(Death) on his sister.

Bhaya and Mrityu had twins too: Niraya and Yatna.

Mrityu: Death

These are the incestuous spirits of darkness that finally plunge the creation into endless darkness and bring the Pralaya(Apocalypse) to wash the worlds.

A. Immediate cause: incest is prohibited or indicated as a cause? May be. 
B. Torture, and hell: the gravitational sphere of low vibrational frequency, is borne out of Death and Fear vibrations. Which are because of Kaliyuga and abusiveness personified, which are because of the RAGE.

Rage is the root cause of apocalypse.

But wait: Rage was born because of anger and violence.
Anger and violence were siblings born from Hypocrisy and Deceit which in turn were from Greed/Wickedness   .

They were born because Irreligion(Evil, Adharma), and Falsehood(Mithya Acharan) engaged in an incestous relation. Incest is prohibited it seems. It's suggested that incestuous creations would not last enough long is suggested in Bhagvata Purana.

By Rashi name you could tell fortune. Rashi is Moon sign--Moon is fortune karaka--Bhagvata is the story of the fortunate one!

Nrritti, the goddess of Mula Lunar Mansion abducted/adopted Maya and Dambha, but incestuous offsprings continued being born(population was so little a fraction, it was inevitable).

If you say, Adharma and Mrisha were root cause: They were born from Bramha and Bramha from Mahavishnu and Mahavishnu is prime mover.

So, everything is caused by Mahavishnu(everything.)

Mahavishnu designs Kaliyuga(present age) such that if Adharma and Falsehood keep reigning via Dambha, Maya, Lobha, Greed, Anger, Violence and RAGE--it will result in Pralaya(Apocalypse).

Pralaya is because this particular universe is borne out of incestuous creation which does not last very long. { Bramha supporting Mr. Charles Darwin.}

RAGE-YUGA: This Kaliyauga is the age of Fire. Age of rage has fire-arms and agni-element ruling all over the world. This fire results in the 'Fear' and 'Death'. These two are prime causes of Torture and 'Hellish low frequency of vibration at a given-up haunting place' and these two cause incestuous, spirits to take over the creation and plunge it in water to wash away the creation. Pralaya. The End.

Note: Adharma and Mrisha can be compared to Adam and Eve of Bible.

Original Sin is an apple given by Tamoguna(Destructive Energy: Ahamkara--Satan--) because of which they ate the fruit of tree of knowledge to engage in incestuous relation and that is why most of the religions forbid incest even today. They gave birth to Hypocrisy(Dambha) and Deceit(Maya). These again engaged in an incenstuous relation to give birth to Greed and Wickedness---> Violence and Anger--->Rage and Durukti(abusiveness personified)--->give birth to Fear, Death--who in turn give birth to hell and torture---such low frequency of vibration opens wormholes to Patal Loka(abode of demons) and gives them a chance to show the power of destructive Tamoguna--darkness. They sink earth in water by triggering RAGE--nuclear weapons. 

Such is this age of incest--Kaliyuga--which started when Krishna went away to Goloka.

Kaliyuga is age of rage and hence age of apocalypse. In some ages apocalypse does not happen--simple ascension happens and everyone together ascends to a loka a universe like heaven, tapa or satyaloka.

Bhakti is the way to get rid of Moha borne out of Maya and get the vicinity to Mahavishnu according to Bhagvata Purana.

Dhruva and Birth of Adharma--Evil!

Dhruva Leaves Home for the Forest

(1) Maitreya said: 'None of the ones headed by Sanaka [the Kumâras] or the other sons of Brahmâ: Nârada, Ribhu, Hamsa, Aruni and Yati, lived a householder's life [being married], [for] they were [vowed to the] celibate [ûrdhva retasah, sending their seed upwards]. (2) Oh slayer of enemies, Mrishâ, the wife [and sister] of [another son of Brahmâ called Irreligion or][b] Adharma[/b] produced the two [children] Dambha [Bluffing] and Mâyâ [Cheating], but they were taken by [a demon ruling the south-west called] 

Nritti is, goddess of destruction who lives on Tamoguna, also Alaxmi} 

who had no children. Nritti is deity of Mula nakshtra in Astrology 

(3) From those two Lobha [Greed] and Nikrita [Cunning] were born oh great soul. And from the both of them there were Krodha [Anger] and Himsâ [Malice]. From these two [also irreligiously being bound in incest]  Kali and the sister called Durukti [Harsh Speech] were born. (4) Oh best of the truthful, bound to Durukti Kali produced Bhaya [Fearfulness] and Mrityu [Death] and of those two combined Yâtanâ [Excessive Pain] and Niraya [Hell] took birth. (5) I thus explained to you in short the cause of the devastation [of landing in hell because of irreligion]. Someone who hears this description three times o pure one, will lead a pious life and see the contamination of his mind being washed away. 

(6) Next I will describe the dynasty famous for its virtuous activities, oh best of the Kurus, that evolved from the Manu called Svâyambhuva, who was a part of a plenary portion [Brahmâ] of the Personality of Godhead. (7) Uttânapâda and Priyavrata, the two sons of Queen Satârûpa and her husband were, as  parts of [Brahmâ's plenary expansion] of the Supreme Lord Vâsudeva, there for the protection and maintenance of the world. (8) Of the two wives of Uttânapâda, Sunîti ['the one of good conduct'] and Suruci ['the one delighting'], Suruci was far more dear to the husband than the other one who had a son called Dhruva ['the immovable one']. (9) When the king one day was patting the son of Suruci named Uttama ['the one of excel'] whom he had placed on his lap, he turned away Dhruva who also tried to get on his lap. (10) Queen Suruci who was very proud [of the king's attentions] enviously spoke to Dhruva, the child of the co-wife that tried to get on his lap, in such a way that the king could hear it. (11) 'My dear child, you don't deserve to seat yourself where the king sits because, even though you were born as a son of the king, you were not born from my womb. (12) Oh child, you don't understand that, because you are not my own but from the womb of another woman, the thing you desire is out of your reach. (13) You can seat yourself on the throne of the king if you want, but only if you, by means of penance, have satisfied the Person of God and by His mercy have found a place in my womb for yourself [to be born again].'

{ This is a good narrative telling about the fight for throne in which a five year old does miraculous deeds}

The Story of Daksha and Shiva: The Birth of Vam-Marga of Sadhna

This story has been taken from Bhagvata Purana Canto 4, Chapter two. The following translation of original Sanskrita text is taken from Ramesh Menon's work, published by Rupa Publications.

Sage Vidura asked, 'But how could anyone make an enemy of the Lord Shiva, the Mahayogin, the most serene God, who is always absorbed in Dhyana?'
Sage Maitreya said, 'Once, Marichi and other divine sages undertook a great sacrifice called 'Bramha Sattra.' All the Rishis, the Devas, all the divine beings of heaven and earth attended the Yajna.

**This suggests that beings from universes in other dimensions{universes vibrating at higher rates---i. e. Swargaloka} came to attend that ceremony.**

When Daksha Prajapati( Manas-Putra(son born because of holy will of Bramha)) entered the Yajnashala, he was so illustrious, so radiant, sunlike, that the rest of august gathering rose as a man , and paid him a tribute. But only two of those present did not rise, when Daksha entered--Bramha and Shiva.

Daksha strode up to his father Bramha, prostrated himself at the Creator's feet, and took his blessings. Then, he was shown to his appointed place where he sat down. Now he saw that Shiva was already present and had not risen to honour his father-in-law. Daksha was furious.
His eyes turned color of copper and he hissed, " All the Bramharishis are here, and this upstart as insulted me before them all!" He begged for my daughter's hand and I gave her to him. But he shows me no reverence due to a father-in-law. I should have a position of a Guru but this fool doesn't even get up when I enter! He is arrogant and I regret having given my daughter to him."
As he went on he grew angrier and angrier. Soon he could not control himself and raged, "He is shameless, this idiot with a monkey's eyes. O, giving him my Sati was like teaching an imbecile Sudra the Vedas, when he cannot pronounce the holy verses.

We know about this man, surrounded by Bhutas, Pretas and Pishachas, his hair wild, matted in jata, his body covered by ashes from the dead, wearning human bones and skulls as garland, he wanders naked in burning ghats like a king of ghosts and goblins.

At time he laughs for no apparent reason, like a madman, then sobs. He calls himself Shiva, the auspicious one, but he (actually) is 'Ashiva,' the opposite of auspicious. He is always drunk or out of his wits on the Ganja he smokes. 
Yes, he is a king, but a king of Pramathas, evili spirits, and an embodiment of Tamas.

Oh, my father Bramha insisted that I give my precious Sati to him, and against my reason and my will, I agreed. How I rue that mistake today? How I regret having given my pure child to this master of goblins, this vile, mad fellow, this unmada."
Not a word did Shiva speak, and a small smile played on his lips all the while that Daksha raged. Daksha sprang up, took some holy water in his palm, sipped it in achamana, and cried at Shiva:

"Shiva, I will curse you!"

The others, all great ones, rose in alarm, and tried to restrain Daksha. But he was besides himself and past listening them. Daksha cursed Shiva.
"From now on, when Indra, Upendra and other gods receive the havis from any Yajna, you shall get nothing!"

And the Prajapati stormed out of that Yajnashala, where a shocked silence fell. Daksha returned to his home. But Nandishwara heard about the curse, and his eyes turned red as plums. He, in turn, cursed Daksha. 

"Only a great fool thinks so much of himself that he forgets who the lord Shiva is! Daksha minds niceties of decorum too well, and forgets the Truth: that Shiva is the Parabramhan. Such a fool shall lose Shiva's grace and become like an animal who live only to satisfy its hunger and thirst. 
Why, this Bramhana Daksha, this son of Bramha, is as witless as a goat. So let him soon wear a goat's head. And you Rishis and Bramhans, who stood silent while the fool cursed Shiva, all of you shall suffer for the crime committed here today.
Bramhanas the time will come when you will adhere blindly, witlessly to the ritual of the Veda, to its honeyed songs, but you will have forgotten the inner truths of Sanatana Dharma. 
The time will come when you will be winebibbers, gluttons and debauches, living just to satisfy your basest appetites; why, the time will come Bramhanas, when you will live by begging alms! And you will be so greedy and so full of darkness that you will eat anything at all, however impure.
{Note: I don't know if Shiva stopped getting havis, but the second curse seems to have done its due by two ways:A. Today Vedas are being taught by people born in families which are omnivorous. B. People born in Bramhin families have started eating eggs, non-vegetarian food and even cow meat today.C. People born in Bramhin families started begging for living. Earlier they used to live on Dakshina methinks.}
Your only love for gyana, tapasya and holy Vratas will be to deceive the world to have your livelihood. For your only attachments shall be to gold and property, to lust and greed.
You will chant the Vedas but will not know inner meaning. Your rituals will be like a fragrant corpse devoid of life, lifeless, empty and of no real value to anyone.
***It's true that most of the Bramhin community today is not doing its due. Even those chant verses of Vedas daily don't really comprehend them properly, in my humble opinion.***

Bhrigu sprang on his feet, and cried in retort, "I curse those who follow Shiva to be enemies of true Shastras! They shall be called 'Pakhandis' and 'hypocrites.'
They will wear matted jata like Shiva, bones for ornaments, cover their bodies with ash from burning ghats, be drunk on Sura(liquor), wine, and be outcasts from four varnas.
Nandin denounces the way of Vedas, the way of the Bramhanas, which has been the only true path in this world, the path of the manes. So the followers of Shiva shall be heretics, unclean, and shunned by decent men everywhere, who worship Vishnu, the Lord of Gods.
{ Hint towards the historical/mythological conflicts between Shaivas and Vaishnavas. Vaishnavas, Bramhanas, The Aryans considered that their way, the Veda way was the greatest and truest path of all***} 
Note: Sage Bhrigu, a Bramhin Astrologer in this story might have used his Vaka-Siddhi(Perfection of speech) to shape events of future of Shaivites or he might have merely predicted the misfortunes. 
They will have their own cult, based on their Lord, the Smasanilaya, the Sarvaripati, the dweller in cemeteries, the Lord of the night, Lord of goblins, and it shall be left hand way.
[ This is to suggest about Aghoris, Nathas, Nagas and Rajnishas--all following Vam-marga.]

They shall all be possessed and ruled by the Tamoguna."

As Bhrigu raged, Shiva rose, and without a word, but with a sad look on his face, left the Yajnashala with his ganas. The Bramha-Sattra was duly completed, after the thousand years set apart for it.

The sacrificers, all those great and holy ones, came to the Sangama, where the Ganga and Yamuna meet, and bathed there in the holy waters, in avabhrita snana.
Then purified, they returned to their ashramas and spirit realms.
