Kalki , also called Kalkin ,  is the prophesied tenth avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu whose birth will end the Kali Yuga, the final of the four eras Satya Yuga , Treta Yuga , Dvapara Yuga , and Kali Yuga in the endless cycle of existence within the Sanatan Dharma , subsequently starting a new cycle with Satya Yuga. He is described in the Puranas as the avatar who rejuvenates existence by ending the darkest and destructive period to remove adharma and ushering in the Satya Yuga , while riding a white horse with a fiery sword. He is, for example, only an invisible force destroying evil and chaos in some texts [ citation needed ] , and portrayed as someone leading an army of warriors in some. The prophecy of the Kalki avatar is believed mostly by the followers of the Vaishnavism sect of Hinduism Sanatan Dharma , as a part of the ten avatars of Vishnu , who is the chief deity in Vaishnavism. The name Kalki is derived from Kal , which means "time" kali yuga.
