Hindu Mythology's 8 Immortals Who Will Survive Kaliyuga

According to Hindu Mythology, Kaliyuga (the time we're in) will end, God has decreed the judgment day, and when sin increases past the threshold, Lord Vishnu will take birth as Kalki Avatar. Kalki avatar will demolish everything, murder evil people, and end Kaliyuga. It was believed that no humans could teach Kalki avatar to battle and change Kaliyuga to Satyuga, hence chiranjivis were abandoned. These wonderful people are hidden somewhere. Nobody has seen them in person, yet their immortality is well-documented.

1. Markandeya Rishi


Lord Shiva granted his parents Rishi Markandeya's birth. Lord Shiva gave them a choice: a child with a longer lifespan and average intellect or a smart child with a short life. Rishi Markandeya's parents wanted a smart, short-lived child.

Rishi Markandeya was exceptionally brilliant and knew all the Vedas and shastras by age 12. 16 was his death age. On his deathbed, he wrote the Maha Mrutyunjaya Mantra and worshipped Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva defeated Yamraj to save Rishi Markandeya and gave him immortality. After this, Lord Shiva is called Kalantak Shiva (One who ends time).


2. Chakravarthy Bali


Asura Mahabali was Prahalad's grandson and a demon king. Religious and a good king. With his power and knowledge, he conquered the three worlds: heaven, hell, and earth. But the Devtas weren't satisfied, so they asked Lord Vishnu for help (heaven). Lord Vishnu donned a brahmin form and begged King Bali for territory. Bali gave three land stages. Brahmin became tall and covered all three lokas in two steps. Lord Vishnu's last step was on Bali's head. Mahabali and Prahalad's devotion to Lord Vishnu and good actions sent him to heaven, gave him immortality, and let him visit his realm once a year. Kerala is today's Bali. Each year on Onam, King Bali visits his land and remains hidden.


3. Hanuman


Hanuman worshipped Ram and Sita. He fought alongside Ram against Ravana. Hanuman was Rama and Sita's son. Mata Sita gave Hanuman immortality to help Kaliyuga worshippers. Various ancient manuscripts following Ramayana mention Lord Hanuman. Hanuman begged Rama and Sita to stay on earth till he is worshipped. Lord Hanuman is considered present wherever Lord Rama is worshipped as Ram Katha. Lord Hanuman visits a Sri Lankan tribe every 41 years to teach them how to attain moksha. Read about this tribe.


4. Ashwatthama

Son of Guru Drona and rudra avatar. He fought for Kauravas in Mahabharat. Last Kurukshetra war survivor. Guru Drona couldn't be killed armed, therefore Pandavas spread reports about Ashwatthama's death, causing him to throw his weapons and be murdered by Dhristadyumna. Ashwatthama killed Dhristadyumna and other Pandavas’ sons at night to avenge his father's death. Lord Krishna condemned him to dwell for 3000 years without shelter or hospitality, oozing puss and blood. Wandering jungles and pleading for death. Lord Krishna also cursed that his forehead wound would never heal and blood and puss would flow forth for 3000 years. Some people have seen a man with blood on his body and forehead.
