As per Vishnu Purana, Lord Surya resides in the Surya Mandala also called as Surya Loka, and he is called by various names such as Aditya, Bhaskara and Ravi.

Lord Surya is the son of Rishi Kashyapa and Mata Aditi, and his consorts are Sharanyu and Chaya. He is the father of Lord Yama, Yamuna and Lord Shani Dev. He is also the guru of Lord Hanuman. He is an ancient god, and he is most popularly worshipped in ancient period, and his worship was slowly declined due to the increase in the popularity of gods like Vinayaka, Shiva and Vishnu.

Surya Mandalam is situated far away from the earth, and normal people cannot think about going to that Loka, since Surya generates lot of heat, and it is highly impossible to visit that world, and even if we try using modern techniques, before reaching the abode of Lord Surya, we would be burnt into ashes. Surya Mandala is also bigger in size similar to the other planets, and it contains all the richness and comforts similar to the Swarga Loka. In the Surya Loka, there are separate palaces for his consorts, and for his servants.

As per Vishnu Purana, Kali Yuga is considered as the fourth Yuga, and the first Yuga was Satya Yuga, second was Treta Yuga, and Third was Dvapara Yuga. Kali Yuga is connected with the demon Kali, also known as Kali Purusha. As per legend, Kali Yuga was started approximately before 5,100 years. After the end of Dwapara Yuga, when Lord Krishna departed from this earth, Kali Yuga was started.

The total number of years of Kali Yuga is 4,32,000 years, and out of that, we have crossed only 5,100 years, and there is a remaining of 4,26,900 years, to reach the end of Kali Yuga. Till such time, we have to take several births, and have to suffer from severe hardships in our life. By frequently worshipping the god and by chanting of god’s names, our sufferings would be reduced to a certain extent, and we would be able to run our life without much difficulty.

During the Kali Yuga, most of the Hindus would not live their life as per the principles of Sanatana Dharma, and religious conversion activities would take place to a large extent, which at present we are facing it. Lot of Hindus would get themselves converted into other religions, and would speak badly about the principles of Hinduism. They would even question about the existence of the great divine avatars like Rama and Krishna, and they would spread fake messages amongst the people, and they would also talk badly about Hindu gods and goddesses.
