Spiritual Practices Have Changed Over The Ages In Hinduism

Satya Yuga - we find the rishis immersed in meditation.

Treta Yuga - we find people practicing sacrifices and expecting boons from gods and goddesses.

Dvapara Yuga – we find people practicing severe austerities to attain desire fulfillment.

In this Kali Yuga, however, only pure love and devotion are needed. Chanting god’s name is the main spiritual discipline.

Truthfulness is austerity in this age. If one practices the truth, that is enough.

Charity is the path of the Kali Yuga. Give in charity, and charity will purify your mind.

In this Kali Yuga, chanting the name of the Lord is very helpful, says the Chaitanya Charitamrita: “In this age of Kali there is no other means, no other means for self-realization than chanting the holy name, chanting the holy name of Lord Hari.

In this Kali Yuga, chanting the Lord’s names is the spiritual discipline.
