My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother, [from the stars] as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. we were told of their coming long ago. But still we await Pahana. He will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother
While most of us are very familiar with prophets such as Nostradamus, or Baba Vanga, the truth is there are many who have spoken out about the future of our civilization in the distant past.
Today’s society is aware of the predictions made by Nostradamus—who is believed to have accurately foreseen the Moon Landing, the assassination of J.F.K., Hitler, The Nuclear Bomb and 9/11.
In addition to Nostradamus, Baba Vanga—also referred to as the blind prophet or blind Mystic—made incredible predictions that earned her a place among the most famous prophets to ever live on Earth.
Baba Vanga, a Bulgarian mystic who suffered from complete blindness predicted the 9/11 Terror Attacks and the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami also seemed to have warned the world with her predictions about the rise of the terrorist group ISIS decades ago. One of the most fascinating predictions made by Baba Vanga is related to President Barack Obama.
But Nostradamus and Baba Vanga were not the only ones who made predictions of future events.
If we take a look at ancient history, we will find that the ancient Hopi and Hindu also made various predictions of events that are yet to unfold.
Ancient Hindu Prophecies

Apocalypse for the Hindu is the natural ending of the world in the fourth age, the Kali Age. Interestingly, it’s not one apocalypse but a series of apocalypses, each of which marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.
Written in the Hindu Puranas—considered as a written weaving of mythology and history—are a set of Hindu Prophecies:
Dharma becomes very weak in the Kali Age. People commit sin in mind, speech, and actions.
Quarrels, plague, fatal diseases, famines, drought, and calamities appear. Testimonies and proofs have no certainty. There is no criterion left when the Kali Age settles down.
People become poorer in vigor and luster.
They are wicked, full of anger, sinful, false, and avaricious.
Bad ambitions, bad education, bad dealings, and bad earnings excite fear.
The whole batch becomes greedy and untruthful.
Many sudras will become kings, and many heretics will be seen.
There will arise various sects; sannyasins wearing clothes colored red.
Many profess to have supreme knowledge because, thereby, they will easily earn their livelihood.
In the Kali Age, there will be many false religionists.
India will become desolate by repeated calamities, short lives, and various diseases.
Everyone will be miserable owing to the dominance of vice and Tamoguna.
People will freely commit abortion.
Earth will be valued only for her mineral treasures.
Money alone will confer nobility.
Power will be the sole definition of virtue.
Pleasure will be the only reason for marriage.
Lust will be the only reason for womanhood.
Falsehood will win out in disputes.
Being dry of water will be the only definition of land.
Praise worthiness will be measured by accumulated wealth.
Propriety will be considered good conduct, and only feebleness will be the reason for unemployment.
Boldness and arrogance will be equivalent to scholarship.
Only those without wealth will show honesty.
Just a bath will amount to purification, and charity will be the only virtue.
Abduction will be marriage.
Simply to be well dressed will signify propriety.
Any hard-to-reach water will be deemed a pilgrimage site.
The pretense of greatness will be the proof of it, and powerful men with many severe faults will rule over all the classes on Earth.
Oppressed by their excessively greedy rulers, people will hide in valleys between mountains, where they will gather honey, vegetables, roots, fruits, birds, flowers and so forth.
Suffering from cold, wind, heat and rain, they will put on clothes made of tree bark and leaves.
And no one will live as long as twenty-three years.
Thus in the Kali Age humankind will be utterly destroyed.
The prophecies of the Ancient Hopi
My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother, [from the stars] as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. we were told of their coming long ago. But still we await Pahana.
He will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.
The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.
This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.
This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes — the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.”
This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes — the coming of the white men’s cattle.
This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron.
This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider’s web.
This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.”
This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it.”
This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom.
And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.
These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands — with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying. Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon — very soon afterward — Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World.
