Yuga Dharma in the Kaliyuga

Just chant

Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare
hare ram hare ram ram ram hare hare

By this mantra, the people worship Lord Krishna in Dvapara Yug. In kali-Yug the occupational duty of the people is to chant congregationally the holy name of Krishna.

In the Age of Kali, Lord Krishna assumes a golden color and, accompanied by His personal devotees, introduces hari nama sankirtana, the chanting of the Hare Krishna. By this process He delivers love for Krishna to the general populace.

"Lord Krishna, the son of  Nand Maharaja, personally introduces the occupational duty of the Age of Kali. He personally chants and dances in ecstatic love, and thus the entire world chants congregationally.

In the Age of Kali, intelligent persons perform Congregational chanting to worship the incarnation of Godhead who constantly sings the name of Krishna. Although His complexion is not blackish, He is Krishna Himself. He is accompanied by His associates, servants, weapons and confidential companions.'

 "In the other three Yugs —Satya, Treta and  Dvapara — people perform different types of spiritual activities. Whatever results they achieve in that way, they can achieve in Kali Yug simply by chanting the Hare Krishna maha mantra.

"'My dear King, although Kali Yug is full of faults, there is still one good quality about this age. It is that simply by chanting the Hare Krishna maha mantra, one can become free from material bondage and be promoted to the transcendental kingdom.'

'Whatever result was obtained in Satya Yug by meditating on Vishnu, in  Treta Yug by performing sacrifices and in Dvapara yug by serving the Lord's lotus feet can also be obtained in kali yug simply by chanting the Hare Krishna maha mantra.

'Whatever is achieved by meditation in Satya  yug, by the performance of  Yajna in Treta Yug or by the worship of  Krishna’s' lotus feet in Dvapara Yug is also obtained in the Age of Kali simply by chanting the glories of Lord Kesava.'

 "'Those who are advanced and highly qualified and are interested in the essence of life know the good qualities of kali Yug. Such people worship the Age of Kali because in this age one can advance in spiritual knowledge and attain life's goal simply by chanting the Hare Krishna maha mantra.
