DWAPARA YUGADWAPARA YUGA In Dwapara, half of the merit of Mercy was lost. Rare was the enlightened person, who knew it; the Dharma-Bull had only two feet, only the enlightened person could realise the Truth. The kings performed the religious acts with motive. Acts of charity were practised with hope for reward; No ritual could bring salvation without the Name of the Lord….. (Maru M. l, pp. 1023-24) In Dwapara Yuga, the duality grew strong. Those who indulged in duality strayed into illusion; In Dwapara, the Dharma-Bull had only two feet, He, who became enlightened held fast to the Name of the Lord. (Ramkali M. 3, p. 880) In Dwapara, the chariot is of austerity and charity is the charioteer.
(Var Asa M. l, p. 470) During the Dwapara Yuga, Dharma became two-legged. There prevailed falsehood, malice, dissensions and discontent. The virtues diminished by half. There was violence and strife, though the scriptures were read and acts of Dharma were performed. See : Yugas (Ages)
