Kaliyuga is an age of evil in which man has fallen from his pristine glory.
for this reason, the memory of this past age (Kaliyuga) was retained by especially those who were relegated to the position of paupers in the new society and that age was extolled as a Satyuga (age of righteousness) which it was said would return and lift the pall of vices that characterized the later days.

 The Redeeming Aspect Of KaliyugaSpirituality - Indiatimes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
According to Kakbhushundi, Kaliyuga has many virtues, too, of which the most important is that in Kaliyuga, "escape from the cycle of birth and death is easy".
On the contrary, in Kaliyuga where conditions are not conducive to spiritual evolution, it is easier methods which work.
The effort required for spiritual liberation is inversely proportional to the moral intensity of the age.

 The Little Magazine - Other - Amartya Sen
Returning to the Kaliyuga calendar, it is also perhaps of some significance that there is no corroboration of the use of the Kaliyuga calendar in the Vedas, which are generally taken to date from the second millennium BC.
Indeed, we know from Aryabhata’s own dating of the Kaliyuga in terms of the Saka era (421 Saka year) that at least by then the Saka era is well-known and in good use.
Some of the conclusions have been quite firm: for example, the recognition that the allegedly ancient Kaliyuga calendar, in its developed form, is not older — possibly significantly younger — than the Saka calendar (or the Vikram Samvat), or some non-Hindu calendars such as the Buddha Nirvana or the Mahavira Nirvana.

 BNR Metal Pages -- Kaliyuga   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Kaliyuga is one of a few Singaporean metal bands to make some international noise (Rudra, with whom this band shares some members, is probably the most well-known).
Their debut album, 14/07, is a competent, though generic, slice of Swedish-styled melodic death metal.
It's a bit thin production-wise, and there's not a lot of originality to be found, but the sheer accomplishment of a Singaporean band making it this far is notable at least.

 Potpourri- Nat Pala Sankritan Music Of Manipur
During Satyayuga by deep meditation, during Tretayuga by performing yajnas, during Dwapura-yuga by offering constant service, worshipping of the Lord of the Universe (Vishnu) was fruitful, but in the dark age of the kaliyuga it could be possible only by way of singing and hearing the 'Hari Sankritan'.
It is the firm belief of the Vaishnavites that in the awesome era of Kaliyuga the Lord has come down in the form of 'Sankritana'.
Shri Gouranga, internally the dark colored Krishna of the Braja Brindaban, and externally manifesting the golden color of Shrimati Radhika (Antare Kaala Bahire gora) is therefore the presiding deity of the Nat Sankritan - this is the very foundation of the Manipuri Nat Pala Sankritan music.

The current Kaliyuga began the 18th of February, 3102 BC Thus, we have been living in this horrible Yugá for about 5,100 years.
At daybreak of Kaliyuga, all "Yajñá-s" or worship rituals were mostly abandoned.
This is so because each of the Yugá-s has a specific "set" of practices which "should not" be performed in a different age due to either their inherent difficulty or uselessness.

 The Date of Mahabharata Based on the Indian Astronomical Works   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Indian astronomers of Siddhantic works and followers have recorded the date of Bharata implying Mahabharat war in particular and starting of Kaliyuga or Era, that is used to reckon the dates of themselves at many places and in conjunction with Saka era in some places later.
Since Aryabhata states that three quarter yugas had elapsed at the beginning of Kaliyuga, the beginning of the current yuga and the end of the past yuga (according to him) occurred in the midst of Kritayuga; so his yuga is not the true one (BrSpSi, xi.4).
Therefore, that Aryabhata only first introduced Kaliyuga concept, yuga reckoning etc., are not correct, as such principles were dealt with in Smritis also before Aryabhata.

Hindu cosmological time cycles represent numerically the life of our solar system and are a comprehensive system of time measurement based upon the sexagesimal number system with units as small as 1/216000 of a day and as large as 3.1104×10
To demonstrate the astronomical quantities which lie behind the cycles, we require only the principal unit of the cycles, namely, the kalpa period, and its three principal subunits: the manu, caturyuga, and kaliyuga intervals.
The following three tables, taken from the English commentary to the Burgess translation of the SuryaSiddhanta, clearly present the infrastructure of Hindu cosmological time cycles.
