The age of degeneration (Skt. kaliyuga; རྩོད་ལྡན་གྱི་དུས་, Wyl. rtsod ldan gyi dus, tsöden gyi dü) — a period when there are five degenerations: life span, negative emotions (the five poisons increase), beings (it is difficult to help them), times (wars and famines proliferate), views (false beliefs) that spread.
