Parikshit

Kaliyuga began with Sri Krishna's Ascent : Vishnu Puranam

Reference :

  1. Vishnu Puranam Page : 334; 4th Amsa – 24th Adhyaya.
  2. How many kinds of Yugas are there?

From these shlokas, we learn that Kaliyuga began at the instant of Sri Krishna’s descent, and in the previous shloka we learned that, this happened duting the time of Parikshita, when the Saptarishis indicated Maagha. We speculate that these shlokas were composed at the time of King Nanda or later and further that this Nanda WAS NOT Mahpadma Nanda, but Nandivardhana of the Pradyotanas.
