ŚB 1.17.40

अमूनि पञ्च स्थानानि ह्यधर्मप्रभव: कलि: ।
औत्तरेयेण दत्तानि न्यवसत् तन्निदेशकृत् ॥ ४० ॥
amūni pañca sthānāni
hy adharma-prabhavaḥ kaliḥ
auttareyeṇa dattāni
nyavasat tan-nideśa-kṛt

Synonyms

amūni — all those; pañca — five; sthānāni — places; hi — certainly; adharma — irreligious principles; prabhavaḥ — encouraging; kaliḥ — the Age of Kali; auttareyeṇa — by the son of Uttarā; dattāni — delivered; nyavasat — dwelt; tat — by him; nideśakṛt — directed.

Translation

Thus the personality of Kali, by the directions of Mahārāja Parīkṣit, the son of Uttarā, was allowed to live in those five places.

Purport

Thus the Age of Kali began with gold standardization, and therefore falsity, intoxication, animal slaughter and prostitution are rampant all over the world, and the saner section is eager to drive out corruption. The counteracting process is suggested above, and everyone can take advantage of this suggestion.
