May Lord Kalki, whose complexion is the door of a dark rain cloud, whose horse travels faster than the wind, who protects the righteous with His sword, who re- establishes the Satya-yuga after vanquishing Kali, shower His blessings upon you.
About five thousand years ago, Sri Krsna Dvaipayana Vyasa, an empowered incarnation of Lord Krsna, appeared in the holy land of Bharatavarsa. Realizing that as the four yugas progress, the human beings' power of understanding gradually diminishes; He divided the one Veda into four and imparted them to His four principal disciples. These four Vedas are the Same, RK, Yajur, and Atharva. Latter on, His disciples again divided the Vedas into many branches.
Even after dividing the Vedas, Srila Vyasadeva did not feel satisfied. Thinking that it will be impossible for the people of Kali-yuga to understanding the actual purport of the Vedas, He took the essence of that understanding and compiled a simple literature called the Purana Samhita in story form. Based on this literature, His three principal disciples wrote three more samhitas: Savarni-samhita, Samsapayana-samhita, and Akrtavrana-samhita. The eighteen Puranas and thirty-six sub Puranas were later complied, being based on these four samhitas. Because Srila Vyasadeva's Purana Samhita is the source of these literatures, all the Puranas and sub Puranas are attributed to him.
Among the upa-puranas or sub Puranas, the Kalki Purana is most sacred and widely respected. At the end of Kali -yuga, the Supreme Lord, Hari, will incarnate as Lord Kalki and kill all the mlecchas, yavanas, atheists, and Buddhists of the world that defy the Vedic authority. The pastimes of Lord Kalki are the subject matter of this literature, which is presented in story form. Exalted personalities can see everything, past, present and future. For this reason, there is no fault in narrating these future events as if they had already occurred. The Kalki Purana consists of thirty-five chapters.
