When is the world going to finish? & Would we have the ability to witness it? What do puranas say for it? These have been some frequent questions amongst many. Lets see from Hindu scriptures, particularly what Bhagavatha Purana and Vishnu Purana say for the age of the universe.
Nicely, At present, we’re in 2019, 21st century,that’s the primary quarter of the Kali Yuga as per the scriptures. The span of Kali Yuga is 4,32,000 years. Earlier than this Yuga, there was Dwapara Yuga, Tretha Yuga and Sathya Yuga. Lord Krishna leaving the earth and returning to Vaikunda is taken into account as the tip of Dwapara Yuga and the commencent of Kali Yuga & that yr is usually believed as 3102 BCE. By summing up we’re simply 5121 years operating in Kali Yuga, which implies there are Four lakh 27thousand years extra to mark the tip of Kali, on the occurence of which, Lord Vishnu would incarnate as Kalki to destroy the evil and re-establish Dharma as per Bhagavatham,
Dharma would get restored and Sathya Yuga would begin once more however that may not mark the tip of the universe, The entire destruction, MahaPralaya and re-creation of the universe, Srishti would occur solely after 100 years of Brahma will get accomplished. However the timeframe of Brahma (i.e.) Devas are totally different from that of people. Let’s discover the equal human years in accordance with photo voltaic calendar equivalent to the lifetime of Brahma which in flip denotes the lifetime of the universe. We’ll begin from the Yuga.
The span of Kali Yuga is 432000 years. That of Dwapara Yuga is twice the span of Kaliyuga, 864000 years, of Thretha is thrice the Kali amounting to 12,96,0000, whereas Sathya is 4 instances, making it 17,28,000 years
These 4 Yugas collectively known as as One Chatur Yuga or One MahaYuga, summing up these, we get 4.32 million human years and equally thousand such Chatur Yugas known as as 1 Kalpa which is 4.32 billion human years, You already know what this makes simply sooner or later of Brahma, His one evening is one other Kalpa. So 2 Kalpas make his one full day, Equally his one yr and Equally his 100 Years. That can mark the tip of Brahma, or fairly finish of his tenure paving manner for one more Brahma to take over his job. And that is when all the universe would get destroyed and re-created. So the life or tenure of Brahma could be 4.32 x 2 x 360 = 311 trillion human years.
Apart from these,
Every Kalpa (i.e.) the 1000 chatur Yugas are divided and managed by 14 Manus, indicating that every Manu would get roughly 71 Chatur Yugas and this era known as as Manvantara. Nicely. Too many nmbers
Anyway 2019,. the place we at the moment are?
Throughout Sankalpa, or an oath which we take for Upanaya or be it any ceremenony, we normally point out the time throughout which we’re taking it.
Adhya Brahmana; dvithiya praarthe
Swetha varaaha kalpe
Kaliyuge prathame paathe after which we proceed with the geographical location, Jamboodhveepa, Baratha Varushe.
Adhya Brahmanaha signifies the current Brahma, as a result of his publish retains altering, Divithiya Pararthe, Pararte is half, Dwithiya paratha signifies second half, It’s mentioned to be 1st day of the 51st yr specifically Swetha Varaha Kalpe Vaivasvatha manvanthre, as a result of it dominated by the seventh Manu, Vivaswaan or the Surya, Ashtavimshathi thame, – Chatur Yuga which comes for 28th time, and Kali Yugae Prathame Padhe, denoting 1st quarter of the Kali Yuga, which we’re in proper every now and then we slim down until that day’s star earlier than finishing the sankalpa.
Nicely that it. That is the general illustration of the massive time scale or the Kaala Chakra, which Hindu scriptures have given us. You already know whatAs the Kaala chakra, retains rotating infinitely via cycles of creation and destruction, ourselves, the Athma or the soul caught within the cycle of samsara additionally retains on taking infinite rebirths, Punarapi Jananam Punarapi Maranam, repeated delivery and dying till it attains the everlasting abode, often known as Moksha or the Salvation.
