YAŚAS - यशस्

Father of Kalki, the tenth incarnation of Mahāviṣṇu. [Agni Purāṇa, Chapter 16], mentions that towards the end of Kaliyuga all people will become atheists, there will be an intermixture of castes and all people will become thieves and devoid of virtue. At that time, the 15 branches of the Veda called Vājasaneyas alone will be the authority. Mlecchas (low-class people) assuming the form of Kings will begin to eat human beings. Agni Purāṇa states further that at that time, Lord Viṣṇu will incarnate as Kalki, the son of Yaśas and Yājñavalkya's priest and after training himself in archery and weapons, annihilate all Mlecchas.
