Dharmas Prohibited in Kali yuga:

4. In Parasaramadhaviyam- ‘Woman’s remarriage, greater share (of wealth) for the elder son, cow slaughter, uniting with the wife of one’s brother, kamandalu (waterpot)- these five are not to be practised in Kali yuga.

1. In Smrityarthasara- ‘Getting son through brother-in-law after death of one’s husband; adoption of vanaprastha asrama (the third asrama of the recluse); remarriage of a girl who has not attained puberty; travel across sea; carrying kamandalu; embarking on Mahaprasthanam (walking to heaven); use of cow as sacrificial animal; consumption of liquor in yaga; licking with tongue of Agnihotrahavani; intermarriage among the three varnas; limiting of pollution based on good conduct, study of Vedas etc.; touching the impure after the collection of Asthi (bones); prescription of expiation till death to brahmanas; association with those who commit grave sins (mahapatakas); cow slaughter prescribed in madhuparka; acceptance as son of one other than datta (ceremonially received) and aurasa (own); carrying out of ‘samitram’ (tying of cattle for sacrifice) by brahmanas; selling of soma; lifelong brahmacharya; conducting naramedha (human sacrifice) and aswamedha (horse sacrifice)- these dharmas are considered by the virtuous as fit to be avoided during Kali yuga.

2. In Dharmasastrasudhanidhi- ‘Marrying in the gotra of one’s mother; cow slaughter; getting son by a widow through her brother-in-law; killing in a dharmic war brahmanas who are ready to kill; admitting dvija back after expiation on travel across sea; performing ‘satrayaga’; carrying of kamandalu by everyone; undertaking Mahaprasthanam; cow slaughter in the yaga ‘gosavam’; consuming sura (liquor) in ‘soutramani’; committing the ‘great sin’ of joining those who commit ‘great sins’; expiatory acts for ‘great sins’; torture of cow for alliance, guest, Pitrus; joining ‘great sinners’ even after expiatory acts; abandoning the wife of guru for relation other than sexual; eating by brahmana of food of dasan, gopalan, kulamitran, ardhasiri among sudras; undertaking of long distance pilgrimage by grihastha; treating by disciple of the wife of guru like treating guru himself; causing increasing danger to dvijas; living without saving for the next day; travelling always; blowing Agni with mouth; acceptance of woman defiled by forceful molestation after expiatory acts; seeking of alms by sanyasi from all varnas; use of fresh water for first ten days; giving dakshina as desired by guru; preparation of food by sudra for the three varnas; death of old people by falling from mountain, falling in fire etc.; achamanam in water left after drinking by cow; punishing witnesses in disputes between father and son; staying at home by sanyasi in evenings- these are prohibited for the sake of social order at the beginning of Kali itself by learned and wise mahatmas. The conduct of the virtuous is as much authority as Veda.

1. Aapasthambha prohibits begetting of son through brother-in-law. One who is issueless should not entrust his wife or daughter-in-law to others who are not of same gotra. The ancients say that woman is given for growth of lineage; but it is prohibited in Kali. Being slaves of sense organs will lead to the sin of prostitution. Brother-in-law and such sapindas are not same as one’s husband; if one transgresses this limitation, the couple will go to naraka.

Namaskar, interesting, I think everything is easy possible to observe except not to "travel across the sea", even Vedic Gurus, Brahmins and astrologers are traveling these times.

I have a question what Ancient Vedic authorities saying about taking 2 or more wifes?

Thanks. But following after 5 months is absolutely necessary. You can post your query about 2 or more wifes here. Perhaps some learned person may reply Smile
Thanks and regards
