WORDSWORTH'S GRASMERE.

Another symptom of Kali-yuga: dharma-nyäya-vyavasthäyäm käranam balam eva hi. “Religious principles and justice will be determined by a show of strength.” [Srimad-Bhägavatam 12.2.2] If you have some influence, then everything will be decided in your favor. You may be the most irreligious person, but if you can bribe a priest he will certify that you are religious. So character will be decided by money, not by actual qualification. Next is däm-patye ’bhirucir hetur mäyaiva vyävahärike: “Marriages will be arranged according to temporary affection, and to be a successful businessman, one will have to cheat.” [Srimad-Bhägavatam 12.2.3] The relationship between husband and wife will depend on abhiruci, their liking each other. If a girl likes a boy and a boy likes a girl, then they think, “All right, now let the marriage take place.” No one ever knows what the future of the girl and boy will be. Therefore everyone becomes unhappy. Six months after marriage—divorce. This is because the marriage took place simply on the basis of superficial liking, not deep understanding.
