Yada yada hi dharmasya
Glanir bhavati bharata
Abhyutthanam adharmasya
Tadatmanam srjamy aham
Paritranaya saadhunam
Vinashaya ca dushkrtam
Dharma-samsthapanarthaya
Sambhavami yuge yuge!!

Whenever and wherever there is a decline in dharma, O descendant of Bharata, and a rise of adharma - at that time I manifest my-self…
To protect the innocent and to punish the guilty...to reestablish dharma,
I manifest era after era!!

As per the Kalki Purana… Kalki is prophesized to take birth in the home of a well known brahmana by the name Vishnuyasa and his wife Sumati in the village of Shambhala. He will train extensively in martial arts and weaponry under guru Parashurama-the warrior worshipped by all warriors.
After doing immense penance for over ten years in the mountains for Rudra, he will receive the sword, Ratnamaru and also his vehicle, Devadatta – the white horse.
Kalki will then annihilate all evil in this age of darkness and lead humanity to the age of truth, Satya Yuga…

I'm expecting him to have an actual horse, call me a traditionalist, but you certainly make him look bad-ass with that motorbike.

I'm in love with this take on Kalki. Gore Vidal is cancelled.

Not bad, but I would think of Kalki as a kind of future post-singularity Transhuman Cyborg with Magi-tech powers battling other kinds of posthuman beings also with powers and the Demon Kali as some evil super being or some advanced worldwide AI or something

Cool interpretation of Kalki on "horse" :)

Would make sense that ancient prophets would believe a motorcycle to be a kind of magical horse

I mean these were people who had no knowledge of modern engineering, so something mechanical would appear to be magic to them.

I LOVE this interpretation of Kalki. I think it's absolutely fantastic. Just wondering if you could also do a badass piece on Durga? Thanks!

Actually more like 427,000 years (Kali-Yuga is considered to be 432,000 years, and began about 3102 BCE)
