As Agni Purana and other scriptures have it, Vishnu is scheduled to incarnate in his last and tenth incarnation as Kalki that shall take place during the last part of Kaliyuga, the age of Kali, when people will have lost faith in God, become irreligious and atheist, those of the low castes would rule and feed upon human beings, and the rest, converted into thieves and evil-doers. At this juncture, Vishnu shall incarnate as Kalki, the son of a Brahmin named Vishnuyashas in the village Sambhala. He would take over as the priest of Yajnavalkya. Kalki would have the power to create arms and soldiers by his mere will and by them he would destroy the wicked. With this would begin the new eon which will be known as Kritiyuga. Opinions differ as to whether Kalkiavatara has taken place or not. Texts assert that it shall take place during the last part of Kaliyuga. In Vana-parva, Mahabharata has estimated Kaliyuga's age as 4, 32. 000 years. The Great War itself had taken place around the beginning of Kaliyuga. Thus, so far Kaliyuga's age would be around 5000 years or so. Obviously, it will take a long time for Kaliyuga to reach its last part when Kalki would incarnate.
