Sourcing Sat Yuga Ether Consciousness Here & Now & Its Phenomenal Possibilities

Did you know that Kala yuga has already ended, and a new era of enhanced perception is about to begin?
What Lies Ahead as we move from last 62 years of Dwapar Yuga to Treta Yuga and then To Sat Yuga?
Krishna had said that after over 5000 years, there will come a many thousand year period of time that will be fabulous.
  • Time …..What is it? This is such an odd question to ask. But to never inquire into the nature of time is even more strange. We are all subject to time and its process of birth, life, decay, and death. This linear process makes us believe that the nature of time is just linear and something we don’t need to explore.
  • But is it really linear or something completely different and a lot greater than we have first considered? Time is something we never consider just like fish don’t consider the water in which they live. But in one of the longest enduring cultures in the world, they didn’t just consider time, but they also mapped its birth and relationship to the nature of consciousness itself.
  • Let us explore here the most unique perspectives of time known to humanity. Be prepared to have your worldview and perspective of time turned upside down. The ancient Eastern view of time is completely different to our modern view of time. A perfect example of this is the ancient Hindu time system known as the Yugas.
  • The word yuga in Sanskrit means age, cycle, or world era. The yugas are a complex world-age doctrine of four ages. The yugas map cycles of change within the universe and consciousness. The yugas build a solid framework for understanding how we experience time and eternity, and how both are related to one another which is similar to the idea of samsara is nirvana and nirvana is samsara in Buddhism.
  • This way of thinking is completely different to the view of time and eternity held firm by Western religions and the West in general, which has become the accepted modern view of time. The Western view of time is linear and this effect’s the Western view of eternity because the idea of an eternal “heaven” becomes something we have to wait for until after death. This Western view implies that eternity is bound to time.
  • This is a ridiculous assumption considering eternity can only be ever-present in this very moment and can only be experienced when limiting thoughts and thinking have completely ceased. The Eastern view of eternity can be nowhere else but in this present moment, and a lot of their time systems and philosophies are based on this eternal now. As a result, the relationship between time and eternity is thought of very differently in the East, especially in the yuga system.
  • Many Eastern traditions don’t map time linearly, but instead, they designed systems to understand time’s nonlinear qualities in relation to matter, mind, and spirit. In Hinduism, the nonlinearity of time is broken into cycles of time rather than a linear approach. These time cycles, known as the yugas, map the consciousness that drives the process of linear time that unfolds as human civilization.
  • There are two yuga systems that are somewhat similar in terminology, but a lot different in theory. There is the ancient long-count system and a more recent short-count system. Both systems are based on the concept of kalpa.
  • Kalpa is a Sanskrit word that means aeon in Hindu and Buddhist cosmology. A kalpa equals 4.32 billion years. This massive period of time is not about lifetimes or an age, but rather the life of Earth. The concept of kalpa is described in the ancient texts of the Puranas, especially the Vishnu Purana and Bhagavata Purana. These texts are the original authority of the yugas and what the majority of Hindus follow.
  • One kalpa of 4.32 billion years is regarded as a day of Brahma, the creator god, or creative principle, that makes up a third of the Trimurti of gods alongside Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer. If you think 4.32 billion years is a long time, a mahakalpa consists of 100 years of Brahma, which is a mind-boggling 311, 040, 000, 000, 000 years.
  • In the long-count system one kalpa is made up of one thousand mahayugas, or great yugas in English. The duration of a mahayuga is built on a system of four yugas. These four yugas are Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dvapara Yuga, and Kali Yuga.
  • The first yuga is the Satya Yuga, which is the ideal or truthful age. The Satya Yuga is often referred to as the “Golden Age.” In this age humanity is governed by the gods and it is believed that our connection to the ultimate reality of Brahman is not inhibited by our Jiva, persona system. We are in perfect union with Brahman and all of our actions and thinking are truly divine. Satya Yuga is an age of knowledge, wisdom, meditation, and love where hatred does not exist. Humans in this age are erudite, honest, powerfully built, vigorous, virtuous, youthful, and long lived.
    Actually, there is a belief that the average life expectancy in the Satya Yuga is 4000 years old. People in this age are also not divided by class because the idea of separation is non-existent. As the Hindu epic, the Mahabharata states: “there were no poor and no rich; there was no need to labour, because all that men required was obtained by the power of will; the chief virtue was the abandonment of all worldly desires. The Satya Yuga was without disease; there was no lessening with the years; there was no hatred or vanity, or evil thought; no sorrow, no fear. All mankind could attain to supreme blessedness.”
  • After Satya Yuga is the second yuga known as Treta Yuga, which is the age where virtue has declined by a quarter of Satya Yuga. Our consciousness in the Treta Yuga becomes a little more dualistic, which has greater implications through other yuga cycles. People in this age are slowly growing more materialistic and less inclined towards spirituality, though keep in mind this is a slow decline. Many social and planetary shifts happen within Treta Yuga. Emperors begin to rise and conquer the world. Wars begin to emerge and become part of our dualistic consciousness. The weather begins to change drastically, giving rise to the formation of oceans and deserts. Agriculture and mining come into existence along with rules and regulations to keep society under control. Despite all of these seemingly negative effects caused by our slowly growing dualistic consciousness, Treta Yuga brought forth the knowledge of universal magnetism and allowed humans to understand the forces of nature and the nature of the universe from a dualistic perspective. Treta Yuga is followed by Dvapara Yuga.
  • Dvapara Yuga is the age where virtue is reduced by half of what it was in the Satya Yuga. Compassion and truthfulness are the two main pillars of spirituality in this age. Having only a spiritual faculty of compassion and truthfulness might be why the ancient hymns and oral tradition of the Vedas were compiled into four parts by the sagely author Vyasa during Dvapara Yuga, who is also believed to be the author of the epic Mahabharata and Puranas. The Vishnu Purana explains this compilation of four Vedas: In every third world age (Dvapara), Vishnu, in the person of Vyasa, in order to promote the good of mankind, divides the Veda,
    which is properly but one, into many portions. Observing the limited perseverance, energy, and application of mortals, he makes the Veda
    fourfold, to adapt it to their capacities; and the bodily form which he assumes, in order to effect that classification, is known by the name of Veda-vyasa. Those four Vedas are Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda, and Atharva Veda. Vedas means knowledge, or more specifically the knowledge of Brahman, the ultimate reality. They were an oral tradition that originated with the enlightened rishis and this oral tradition was passed down through the generations. The Vedas historically are believed to not be works of the human mind, but rather the knowledge of Brahman realized through the intuitive perception of the rishis, giving the Vedas a divine origin. The Vedas that the rishis realized was the ordinary state of consciousness in the Satya Yuga. But this state of consciousness was lost throughout the ages due to our increasingly dualistic consciousness. The Vedas are compiled into four in Dvapara Yuga because people become tainted with even more dualistic qualities than in the Treta Yuga. People are discontent with life and more battles are waged on a grand scale. Kingdoms become solidified and out of touch with the general population. As a result, social class systems are created and have their own methods for attaining spiritual realization. A positive aspect of this age is people are believed to still possess characteristics of youth in old age and also the average lifespan is believed to be around a few centuries. But these positive aspects are paltry in comparison to the degradation of our mind in Dvapara Yuga. But thankfully Vyasa existed on the cusp of Dvapara Yuga and the Kali Yuga, delivering to humanity a spiritual roadmap into the dark age. Without Vyasa, spirituality as we know it today would have died a long time ago. At this transition of the yugas, the greatest of all battles Mahabharata during that period took place and our dualistic consciousness won the war over our nondual nature, discarding the godly sage Krishna from the world.
  • The last yuga, and we could say definitely the least, is Kali Yuga. Kali Yuga is where virtue is reduced to a quarter. Thankfully, in the greater scheme of things. From a human perspective that is an extremely long time, but from a universal perspective it’s miniscule. According to the long-count system, what yuga are we in right now? You’re probably assuming we are in the Satya Yuga, considering our short-sighted belief that we live in an evolved and enlightened world. According to the yugas nothing could be further from the truth. I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but according to the Hindu authority of the Puranas we are only at the end of the Kala Yuga. Hindus believe the dark age of the Kala Yuga commenced with the death of Krishna, the godly sage and eighth avatar of Vishnu, after the famous battle in Kurukshetra explained in the Indian epic Mahabharata. Traditional Hindu authorities put this date at 3102 BCE (though many scholars dispute this date, suggesting a date of around 1500 BCE is more probable). Nevertheless, if we are to take the yuga world-age doctrine seriously, we are only at the end of the Dwapar Yuga. We’ve been on this long descent from the golden age of the Satya Yuga until now. This slow process spanning millions of years into the current Dwapar Yuga has stupefied our mind because that is part of the intrinsic characteristic of the dark age. What is the defining characteristic that shapes our consciousness in the Kali Yuga? The main characteristic is our mind’s identification with the external world and a turning away from the inner world. This is where we focus on everything in the outside world and forget about the inner world. Our awareness is oriented toward the external world. What is of the highest value in the Kala Yuga is how we physically look, how we are perceived by others, our reliance on sensory needs, our dependency on relationships, our over attachment to people and material possessions, and our focus on acquiring assets to promote our own ego. The defining characteristic of the Kala Yuga is basically the minds entanglement with gross matter. Our mind is essentially entangled with the outside world. As a result, human civilization degenerates spiritually. People stop following Dharma and lack virtue. Knowledge is lost and ignorance of our true nature begins. The effects of this spiritual degradation are mindless hedonism, a breakdown of social structure, afflictions and maladies of the mind and body, unrestricted egotism, and greed and materialism. Essentially all of these problems are grounded in ignorance and materially driven. Materialism, then, is the heart of the Kali Yuga because the mind’s tendency in this age is geared towards consumerist thinking. Consumerism becomes the accepted way of life in the Kala Yuga. Ask yourself, does this behavior sound familiar? It’s hard to argue that we’re not in the Kala Yuga when we see what mainly drives people’s actions and motivations. According to the yugas, then, we are at one of our lowest points of evolution due to our fascination with the outside world and how we appear to others in it. We are a hostage to our own self-image. This devolution into matter in the Kala Yuga might be what is fueling our attraction to digital technology and the eventual development of AI and transhumanism. The lowest point of the Kala Yuga might be transhumanism because some people would rather be robots and live forever than be a natural human and experience death. The integration of mind into technology will likely be the lowest point of the Kala Yuga, if it happens. Such technological motivations reflect the Kala Yuga’s defining characteristic that the material universe is everything and the inner world of consciousness is nothing without the material world. This type of thinking is one of the greatest threats to the survival of the human race. So, before you play unconsciously with your phone, ask yourself, what is this habit doing to me and how is it training my mind to be? Actually, our addiction to our phone and the digital world trains us to feel as though they are both a part of us. This state of confusion aligns with the materialist nature of the Kala Yuga. Evidence of this identification with digital devices and the digital world is showcased when someone criticizes social media or digital technology and other people jump to their defense, which is just plain odd when you think about it. They are not living things that we have an intrinsic emotional connection to. They are just objects and an artificial world that could be taken away any moment if the internet disappeared. Could you imagine how stupid I would look if I defended a toaster like it was my friend. I’d look like an idiot. Many people unconsciously defend social media and digital technology because they want to justify their unconscious habits. Just ask yourself, how many times do you unconsciously reach for your phone in a day? Though this may seem insignificant, it’s all leading to a movement away from raw nature and our own intrinsic naturalness and connection with the universe. As a result, the transhumanist agenda is hell-bent on avoiding something as natural as death through the integration of mind into technology. The transhumanists hold immortality on a pedestal and fear death. Our fear of death is intensified in the Kali Yuga because of the belief that matter is everything. Death is an important part of life that we tend to demonize because we don’t know enough about the experience. But from a naturalistic view of life and death, the integration of mind into technology will be a permanent hell we cannot escape. As we began to move into the Kala Yuga after Krishna left the earth and returned to the heavenly abode of Vaikuntha, some enlightened sages, including Vyasa, could foresee our future and they wrote the Puranas, Tantras and other scriptures to serve our spiritual needs in this dark age. These were specifically designed for a spiritual seeker’s inherent difficulties in the Kala Yuga. In the Kala Yuga we lack the moral fiber and mental concentration necessary to pursue the path of liberation. But fortunately, we have access to the divine knowledge in these ancient texts which can bring our awareness back to our true nature within, allowing us to pursue the path of liberation. The hope is that there are enough people in the world who wake up to their divinity. This will be revealed when we cease the minds gravitational pull towards the external world. Only then can the human race survive the Kala Yuga and progress into the golden age of Satya Yuga. In various Puranas they speak of the tenth avatar of Vishnu named Kalki, who is foretold to come into this world near the end of the Kali Yuga. Kalki is thought of as riding a white horse brandishing a blazing sword. His task is to destroy the present age to give birth to the age of Truth with a capital T, Satya Yuga. The truth is the seed of Kalki is within all of us who realize the true Self, the Atman, the undifferentiated consciousness within all, because our true nature is that of Brahman and we can only experience That when we abide as That. Though the idea of the Kala Yuga may seem grim and depressing, a short-count system of the yugas was designed.
  • The short-count system is more of an optimistic view of where human civilization is currently heading. The short-count yugas was introduced by the Indian mystic Sri Yukteswar. Sri Yukteswar explains the short-count system in twelve brief pages in his classical book The Holy Science. Sri Yukteswar doesn’t base his theory of the yugas on the older long-count tradition, but he does use the same terminology and similar characteristics for each Yuga. His system of the yugas was born from his own self-realization. The short-count system of the yugas focuses on the correlation of inner consciousness and outward behavior. Sri Yukteswar explained that as human consciousness changes, so does civilization and human development. With this short-count model we can begin to perceive a discernible pattern in our seemingly chaotic history. In David Steinmetz and Joseph Selbie’s book called The Yugas, they trace our known history in a way that supports the claims of the short-count yuga system. They show a recognizable cycle of human civilization that descended to a certain point of timenand evidence of an ascension. To understand this, I need to explain how the short-count yugas are different to the long-count system.
  • Sri Yukteswar’s theory is based on the radical idea that our own sun revolves around a dual star in a cycle of 24,000 years. It’s a binary star system. Sri Yukteswar explains that this is a celestial phenomenon caused by the backward movement of the equinoctial points around the zodiac. The common explanation for this is precession, meaning the wobbling rotating movement of the earth’s axis. Sri Yukteswar explains this in The Holy Science.
  • He states: “The sun also has another motion by which it revolves round a grand center called Vishnunabhi, which is the seat of the creative power, Brahma, the universal magnetism. Brahma regulates Dharma, the mental virtue of the internal world. When the sun in its revolution round its dual come to the place nearest to this grand center, the seat of Brahma (an event which takes place when the Autumnal Equinox comes to the first point of Aries), Dharma, the mental virtue, becomes so much developed that man can easily comprehend all, even the mysteries of Spirit.” Each age has its own dharma. Dharma here means virtue. Our dharma is at the pinnacle of virtue when our sun and its dual are closest to the grand center of the universe, the creative power of Brahma. To map where we currently are in the short-count system, we need to understand how the complete cycle of 24,000 years is mapped.
  • As with the long-count system, the short-count system is made up of four yugas using the same terminology as the original system. But the difference is the short-count system splits the yugas in two, resulting in eight ages that mirror each other. So one full cycle of 24,000 years goes through 12,000 years of descent and then 12,000 years of ascent. In the short-count yugas the golden age of Satya Yuga is a duration of 9,600 years split into 4,800 years of ascent and descent. Satya Yuga is considered the spiritual age and has the same defining characteristics of the original system. As a result, it is in the Satya Yuga where our dharma is so virtuous that we can understand what Brahman, the ultimate reality, is intellectually. There is no separation between an individual and Brahman.
  • The next yuga in the short-count system is Treta Yuga. It has a duration of 7,200 years split into 3,600 years of ascent and descent. It is the mental age, where we can use our mind to influence matter and other things. Some scholars who support this short-count system suggest this was how we might have erected megalithic structures like the pyramids in Egypt. Another aspect of the Treta Yuga is telepathy. The notion that we could influence other minds shouldn’t come as a shock considering the belief that we can erect megalithic structures with our mind. So telepathic abilities are considered the norm in this age.
  • The next age is Dvapara Yuga. It has a duration of 4,800 years split into 2,400 years of ascent and descent. Dvapara Yuga is the age of energy, the age where we begin to understand that everything is energy and so we begin to use energy to our advantage. This includes the discovery of electricity and advances in science and technology.
  • The last yuga is the Kali Yuga. It has a duration of 2,400 years split into 1,200 years of ascent and descent. As with the long-count system, the Kali Yuga in the short-count system is the material age, where our minds are turned outward and are essentially entangled with the material world. The common illusory belief in this age is that matter is all that exists. There is no deep awareness of energy, mind, or spirit.
  • At the beginning and end of each yuga is a transitional period known in Sanskrit as sandhis. This transitional period is the time when the state of mind is influenced by the energy of the next yuga in the current yuga and likewise the state of mind from the previous yuga still lingers until we move into the new yuga completely at the end of the transitional period. If we follow the cycle of the short-count yuga system, the pinnacle of the spiritual age was not too distant in the past.
  • The height of Satya Yuga, according to Sri Yukteswar’s theory, was specifically at 11,501 BCE, or 11,500 BCE to simplify it. The life in the spiritual age is thought to be much simpler than our modern complex world. Scholars suggest that some of the evidence for the Satya Yuga in this time period is discovered by examining the state of mind behind certain archaeological sites, such as Gobekli Tepe in Turkey. The reason Gobekli Tepe is significant is because it is some sort of spiritual complex or place of worship rather than residential, and its oldest structures have been dated to around 9,000 BCE placing it near the pinnacle the short-count Satya Yuga in the descending cycle. ‘
  • The evidence for Satya Yuga is also supported by Graham Hancock’s lost civilization theory. Hancock postulates that an advanced civilization lived 12,000 years ago and they were wiped out due to some sort of cataclysm, likely a comet strike. Satya Yuga also gives some credence to the idea of Atlantis, which may correspond to Hancock’s lost civilization theory. But the lost civilization theory and Atlantis are not accepted by the scientific community at large because of the belief that Plato invented Atlantis to teach philosophy, making the island either fictional or metaphorical myth, rather than real. Nevertheless, Atlantis and the idea of a lost chapter of human civilization have been part of our intuitions about the evolution of our species for a long time
  • . I don’t want to persuade you one way or the other. But what I want you to consider is how both theories might correspond to the narrative of the short-count yuga system. Since the age of the Satya Yuga we descended through the yugas. The lowest point of the current short-count yuga cycle according to Sri Yukteswar was 499 CE; we could say roughly 500 CE. The time of 500 CE was when the vernal equinox was at 0 degrees Aries. Sri Yukteswar placed the beginning of the golden age at the opposite pole of the zodiac when the vernal equinox was at 0 degrees Libra. If the lowest point of the short-count Kali Yuga was 500 CE, this means the end of the Kali Yuga was the year 1700 CE, specifically 1699 CE. This places us today in the descending cycle of Dvapara Yuga and this is why Sri Yukteswar’s model of the yugas can be viewed as being more optimistic than the original system of the yugas which places us at the beginning of a tumultuous cycle of the Kala Yuga.
  • We moved into Dvapara Yuga proper in 1900 CE, after passing through the transitional period, sandhis. Amazingly, Sri Yukteswar predicted several developments that eventually happened in Dvapara Yuga. Keep in mind, he wrote The Holy Science in 1894. He predicted the rapid development of knowledge in the twentieth century and also the discovery that energy underlies all matter. Basically, he championed the idea that everything is energy. His insights predate Einstein’s E=mc2 by over ten years. Though, it should be noted, the idea of everything is energy has been a hallmark of Eastern thought for as long as anyone can remember.
  • Einstein’s theory, on the other hand, came few years into Dvapara Yuga proper and this changed our world view. Sri Yukteswar predicted that it was inevitable for this knowledge to surface into popular consciousness because energy is the characteristic of Dvapara Yuga. From Sri Yukteswar’s perspective, the relationship between energy and matter would have been brought to light by someone else if Einstein didn’t reveal it because energy is the defining characteristic of the short-count Dvapara Yuga. We know today, over 100 years removed from the revelations of Sri Yukteswar, that energy is a primary focus in the world and this is increasing with the evolution of technology and clean energy which ultimately benefits the world. This also relates to the growing interest in Eastern spiritual practices that focus on how we use our subtle energies.
  • Both systems are intriguing and have their own differing reasons why we should believe them. We can see the validity of the ancient long-count system because of the materialistic world around us and the spiritual degradation of humanity. We can also see the validity of the short-count system because of our modern focus on energy and how intelligent use of technology can help humanity and also how an intelligent understanding of spiritual practices can help the individual understand oneself on the path to spiritual liberation. But in the end, it’s really up to how you feel. It’s a matter of whether you trust the deep intuitions of Sri Yukteswar or prefer to trust an ancient tradition going back thousands of years.
  • The Puranas are the traditional authority and that needs to be respected if we are to take the yugas seriously. But it doesn’t mean we discount the intuitions of Sri Yukteswar. We can frame the world through both systems and that really depends on your own perception of the world. What is imperative to understand and intrinsic to both systems is that deep down our nature is pure and once upon a time we lived completely from that pure essence of the universe, but it has slowly become eclipsed by the orientation of our mind toward the external world through the cycles of time, disconnecting us from everything else. Despite the defining characteristic of any yuga, there are those of us who embody the consciousness of the Satya Yuga by dedicating one’s life to the path of liberation and their enlightenment leads others out of the darkness and into the light, completing our journey from the ignorance of our own divinity to the knowledge of Brahman within all of our hearts as one.

How do we experience consciousness in four yugas

  • If the ether rises some more, you can know by breath. If you go into the forest, you will see, because your vision is blocked to some extent, after some time, the most significant way of knowing things is by smell. Most animals that live there know things only by smell. Because of such concentrated life energy, the ether is high. Because the ether is high, they do not have to see. If you talk, they will get confused. When the ether is very low, you have to talk all the time — otherwise, people will not get it. Even if you talk, they will not get it. You have to knock and talk continuously to make them get it. The etheric content in the atmosphere determines how sensitive you are in terms of your ability to communicate.
  • At the same time, no matter which time, which yuga, which planetary position we are in right now, still, individual human beings can rise above all this. Still, individual human beings can live in a golden time within themselves. Even in the worst of times, the possibility to be well above it is always there for an individual human being.
  • There are many things one can do to enhance the ether or create etheric content. This is why Krishna said, in Kala Yuga, which is down there, far away from the Super Sun, the ether will be so low that there is no point in trying to teach them yoga, meditation, mantras, or yantras — they will not get it. Just teach them devotion. Hence he said religion and temples will help. If they are devout, they will generate their own ether. And because of this etheric content in the atmosphere, they will perceive. Devotion is not for the dumb — but even if you are the dumbest, you can still get it.
  • Thousands of years ago, they said that as the solar system moves closer to the Super Sun, human intelligence will blossom. As the solar system moves closer, the realization that the whole body and the whole universe are electric structures will come naturally. Right now, we are moving towards Treta Yuga, which is the second best time that can happen in a cycle of yugas.
  • Krishna also said that after over 5000 years, there will come a many thousand year period of time that will be fabulous. We will not make it there, but we can set the foundations for it and have the joy of creating an atmosphere for a stretch of thousands of years of golden time upon the planet. This is not all predictions and conjecture — this is based on a deep-rooted understanding about what happens with the human mind in relation to the planet on which we live. We do not only live on this planet — we are the planet. If you do not understand this today, you will understand this when you are buried. The planet understands that you are a part of it — only you think something else of yourself.

Mahabharat — The Story of Every Human Being

  • The story begins because you have false ideas about yourself. Mahabharat represents the grand misconception of human beings about life; their sufferings, their rises and falls. It goes on and on, simply because human beings are struggling to come in tune with life. Whatever someone who is in tune with it tries to say, everyone else will misunderstand. Light cannot be put in words, but if you open your eyes, you can see the light. Similarly, if this life that you are opens up, it can feel life, it can become life.
  • Life cannot be told. Telling is only to inspire, to de-mesmerize you from your own self-mesmerism. Every human being has hypnotized himself or herself into their own limitations and they believe this is it. If you undo that hypnotism, they will feel fearful because existence is limitless. Therefore, if they are spinning one way, you have to spin them the opposite way for some time for them to feel they are going somewhere.
  • The whole Mahabharat is just this effort. No matter what they are doing, everyone thinks they are doing it for the good. Whether it is “my good,” “your good,” someone else’s good, or everyone else’s good — whatever kind of good, everyone thinks they are doing it for the good. But everyone is neither good nor bad, neither right nor wrong — the story just goes on.
  • The story is not about a particular person — Mahabharat comes under the classification of Itihasa. In India, there are three categories of great texts: Itihasa, Purana, Veda. Vedas are full of abstract ideas, scientific theories, and explanations for celestial happenings. Puranas are stories of beings who are not human. Itihasa is the story of the human being, not in terms of history, though there is a historic element to it. The facts are rooted in history, but this is the story of every human being — it is about the meaning of your life. Only if it is your story, it can be a process of growth for you.

The Cycle of Four Yugas

  • The precession (caused by gradual rotation of the Earth’s axis) of the equinoxes is the period of time that it takes the Earth’s axis to pass through one complete cycle of the zodiac. It takes the planet 72 years to pass through one degree of the zodiac and 25,920 years to complete one full circle of 360 degrees. One half of the journey takes 12,960 years and covers the four yugas. Satya Yuga lasts 5184 years. Treta Yuga lasts 3888 years. Dwapara Yuga lasts 2592 years. Kali Yuga lasts 1296 years. These four yugas taken together come to a total of 12,960 years
  • Time is not just a concept that we invented; it is deep-rooted in the system, in the very way we are made. Time — the invisible current behind every story.
  • A Yuga Cycle (a.k.a. chatur yuga, maha yuga, etc.) is a cyclic age (epoch) in Hindu cosmology, where eternal time repeats general events. Each cycle lasts for 4,320,000 years (12,000 divine years) and repeats four yugas (dharmic ages): Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dvapara Yuga, and Kali Yuga.
  • As a Yuga Cycle progresses through the four yugas, each yuga’s length and humanity’s general moral and physical state within each yuga decrease by one-fourth. Near the end of Kali Yuga, when virtues are at their worst, a cataclysm and a re-establishment of dharma occur to usher in the next cycle’s Satya Yuga.
  • And Mahabharat is no exception. Lets understand ancient concept of yugas (eras or ages of time). We find that yugas are not merely measures of time but actually live and tick within the human microcosm, a reflection of the universal macrocosm.
  • We set forth powerful meditations to ignite the vital fires in the human system, to make it receptive and synchronize it with this cosmic clockwork. And most surprisingly, we demolish the long-held idea that we presently live in the decadent age of Kala Yuga.Yugas is part of the series Mahabharat.
  • One who is not in tune with the Dharma of time he will get crushed and crumpled by the process of life. Life is just a play of time. The ancient sages of this nation the ancient seers and Yogi’s of this region looked at time with enormous attention.
  • Our idea of time is essentially because of the way we are connected with the immediate creation around us which is the planet and the solar system.
  • You’ll call it night, midnight, day because of the planet spinning. Most human beings are spinning not knowing where they are going.
  • Speed of light = 2202 yojanas (1 yojana = 9 miles) in half a nimesha (1 nimesha = 16/75th of a second). So 2202 yojanas x 9 miles x 75/8 = 185.794 miles per second. The distances were measured by simple observation of how the human system and solar system functions together.
  • The diameter of the sun x 108 = the distance between the sun and earth. Same as the diameter of the moon x 108 = moon to earth distance. 108 beads in the rosary.
  • Today as we sit here we may call this the day/night because the planet is rotating in a few hours we’ll call this midnight in few more hours we will call this day only because the planet is spinning. The spin of the planet and the human body and the human energies and the human possibilities and the human destiny is so deeply entwined if one does not understand the law that counts this if one is not in tune with the Dharma that counts this he will be just spinning eternally. You know if you spin around for some time then you don’t know where you’re going this is the state of most human beings because unknowingly they are spinning with the planet and then they don’t know where they’re going.
  • The Surya Siddhanta describes rules to calculate the motions of various planets and the moon relative to various constellations, and calculates the orbits of various astronomical bodies.
  • Sage Mamuni Mayan’s Surya Sidhanta which goes back into the quarry of time estimated to be somewhere around 15 to 25 thousand years talks about the speed of light as 2202 yojanas in half a nimesha.
  • Brahmarishi Mayan is supposed to have lived over 10,000 years ago in a now-submerged land south of India and then migrated to southern India. He is supposed to have written many mathematical and physical texts at the level of modern science (nuclear physics, etc.) which were not understood by past scholars so they excluded them from the Vedas.
  • One yojana according to the modern units of measurement equals nearly nine miles while one nimesh means sixteen by seventy fifth of a second. If you multiply this you get this as the speed of light
  • Sage Mamuni Mayan was talking about the speed of light 15,000 years ago and today we have arrived at the same numbers with great difficulty. with all kinds of instrument. This is a simple observation of how the human system and the solar system functions together.
  • The distances between the Sun and the planet, the distances between the moon and the planet and the way we rotate and the impact it has all these things have been looked at with great care.
  • Right now the diameter of the Sun multiplied by 108 equals the distance between Sun and Earth. This is today’s measurement it goes exactly like that the diameter of the moon multiplied by 108 equals the distance to the earth.

You know why we use 108 beads.

What is important to understand is how the making of the time and the making of the human body are so deeply connected.

Our if planet is round and it has a slightly tilted orbit. If you take this orbit and as it travels as it spins here it forms a circle. To form the circle today we know it takes twenty five thousand nine hundred and twenty years. This is the time taken. This tilt mainly happens because of the gravitational pull of the moon over earth and for it to exert that pressure continuously to get this axis to form circle it takes these many years. And that many years is called as the one cycle of yugas.

Twenty five thousand nine hundred twenty divided by sixty because sixty is the number of minutes sixty is also the number of heartbeats you should have if you are healthy. This will turn out to four thirty two.

432 is a number that comes up in various cultures the North’s culture the ancient Jewish culture the Egyptian culture the Mesopotamian culture.

And very much here is 432 why this 432 is your heart beats 60 times a minute if you are in a state of excitement it may be doing more if you are in good health and in good condition it beats 60 times so 60 times into sixty three thousand six hundred into twenty four will be 86,400 is what it would be if you divide it by two we leave this out it’s again 432. If you count the number of breaths that you are taking per minute if you are not in a state of heavy excitement you’re doing 15 if you are in a state of relaxation it shall be 12.

So considering 15 breaths per minute means multiplied by 60 per hour that is 924 that is 21,600.

There is something called as a nautical mile which is a real mile that means when I say the real mile it has something to do with the planet and the way it is. The others units of measurement that we have created has something to do with the ease with which we can calculate. So one nautical mile literally means, you know there are 360 degrees in a circle all of you notice so upon the planet there are 360 degrees.


If this is the planet if this is the equator there are 360 going up like this let’s say if you take this one as one degree in this there are 60 minutes.

It’s referred to as minutes there are 60 minutes these 60 minutes that one minute accounts for one nautical mile.

So that means the circumference of the earth at the equator is twenty one thousand six hundred (21600).

That’s how many breaths you take per day. If the planet is not spinning on time no good at all for us. If you are not in tune with it still not good for you.

Thus time is not just a concept that we invented. Time is deep-rooted in the system in the very way we are made. So when we go into Mahabharata there is much talk about the yugas and how they function the impact of time and human life. Lets look at it from a different context. This is not something that somebody thought up. This is a very phenomenal and profound science. Yoga has always deeply involved this. It is just that we don’t believe in propounding theories about it but by practice we are trying to attune the body to the times and spaces of the creation the way it is because without being in tune with this you you don’t get very far. If you are not riding the time you will live a mediocre life. Probably a very suffering life. Only if you are riding the time you will live an extraordinary life which is what a human being and the human brain is designed for

If you look at the orbit of the planet the planet is here. In the yogic astronomy we divide this orbit into 27 segments called nakshatras.

Each of these is divided into four equal sectors called padas or steps marking the 108 steps that the Sun and the moon take through heaven.

These 27 positions of the Sun in relation to the earth plays a significant role upon the planet. These 27 represent the phases of the Moon from Poornima to Amavasya and from Amasya to Poornima there are 27 segments.

So as the planet is traveling let us say from this one nakshatra to another nakshatra what is happening is the little moon is making its half a circle as it goes to the next one it completes the cycle.

And as this is happening the human cycles within the human body are responding and corresponding to that. In a woman’s body it is very obviously they every 27.5 five days a cycle should happen in a woman’s body if she has to be perfectly healthy. In the male body it is happening in a different way. It is not so obvious and so manifests but it is happening in a different way and the cycle is of a larger span because if it’s a larger span and men don’t have much automatic capabilities they don’t count when was their last cycle

That is mainly because of arithmetic problems but otherwise this is happening all the time

In the solar system this is happening. In the larger universe with relation to the solar system and it is happening in us. So pinda ( the microcosm ) and and a ( the macrocosm ).

The microcosm and the macrocosm both are playing the same game but you tell me who should play whose game. if you think the macrocosm is going to play your game you will waste your life. If you play their game your life will be greater beyond your expectations.

Now talking about Mahabharata, you need a certain context within yourself.

Mahabharata happened a little over 5,000 years ago. Precisely 3,140 BC. is when the Mahabharata war ended. And 3102 BCE Krishna left his body. When the war ended in about three to four months time the Kal Yuga began

When we say the Kali Yuga in the moment of the solar system we’re not talking about the moment of the planet. Now the solar system here we are we are. Our Sun is here and we are all around this itself is moving in the universe this moment. It takes twenty five thousand and nine hundred and twenty years to complete this cycle so the largest star ( the galactic sun ) which is here inside this the exact location we do not know whether it is located centrally or somewhere to the side. But from the effects and the way the climate changes and the way things happen upon the planet we believe it is not in the center. It could be somewhere on one side. Around which our system is going around. Whenever our system comes to a closer influence with this system suddenly all the creatures living in this system they rise to greater possibilities. Whenever our system moves away from this we the creatures living in this system come to the lowest level of possibility

When the creatures come to the lowest level of possibility we say this is Kala Yuga .

So this division of yuga’s runs like this.

If you divide this by two to split it into two halves you will come twelve thousand nine hundred and sixty twelve thousand nine hundred sixty.

So this is the journey of one half to cover the four Yuga’s it takes twelve thousand nine hundred and sixty years.

The Sat Yuga tiga lasts 5,180 four years the

The treta yuga lasts for three thousand eight hundred and eighty eight years.

The Dwapar Yuga will last for two thousand five hundred and ninety two years.

The Kala yuga lasts for one thousand two hundred and ninety six years.

So if you add them up you come to twelve thousand nine hundred sixty to run the four Yuga’s for two times over is 25,920.

The end of Krishna’s era is 3102 BCE. Right now we are in 2020.

That means this is 5222 years since Krishna’s era ended.

If you take away 2592 years which is the cumulative number of years considering the two kala yuga which is at the bottom of the ellipse you get two thousand five hundred and twenty two years the duration of dwapar yuga being twenty five hundred and ninety two years we still have 62 years left for the completion of dwapar yuga. That means 2082 we will be completing dwapar yuga and moving into treta-yuga

The world will go through another upheaval not necessarily in terms of war but we will go through up heaval probably in terms of a population explosion and natural calamities and move into the next era of well-being and upward movement of human consciousness.

– Right now the etheric sphere of the planet has risen to a certain point. When it is sat yuga the ether will be very close. When this happens you don’t have to speak for the other to know what you want to say. You can make this ether come close and then you can know by smell. This is how animals know, they don’t have to see. When the ether is high even when you talk and talk and talk people don’t get it.

– Krishna said there is no point trying to teach them because they wont listen. The best you can do is teach devotion which will bring down the ether. The body, earth, etc are all magnetic and electric. Krishna also said after 5000 thousand years there will come a 10,000 year period of fabulous time. This is not predictions but how the human mind will work over time with the planet.

– By now you should know that you don’t just live on this planet, you are the planet. You are part of it. Telling is only to inspire, you can know. Undo the hypnotism.

– In India they recognise the great text in 3 catagories. Itihas (is the story of the human being), puran (stories of other kinds of beings), vedas (full of abstract ideas and scientific theories). Itihasa — there is a historic element to it but it’s not HIS story. Only if it’s your story is it a process of growing up for you. Ganapati told Vyasa the story of Mahabharatha. 100,000 verses. There is reason to every verse, every character and all the minute details of happenings in their lives and even before/after their lives. Odyssey and Iliad put together are nearly a 7th of this. So don’t make a judgement on people who are not here, find your story in it. Explore your human creature like it’s not been explored before.

– There are 1000s of adaptations of the mahabharat story now. It’s only enriched with the adaptations. Nobody contaminated the story by trying to judge it. No good guy, bad buy. No right, wrong or good and bad. Make it dharma, that which makes till living process a stairway to the divine. Otherwise you make it a spiral to hell.

– The impact of time on the system is very important. We are in ascending time, sandhya. The sandhya between 2 major yugas of time has a great impact on the human body, mind, the whole electrical system and how it reflects with the whole electrical system of the universe. As the voltage increases and if you’re the right kind of instrument, you will glow bright. Otherwise you’ll poop out. Human beings can rise above this.

– Don’t focus on the last part of Mahabharath. You live through it all. With stories you can live through it all even the battles without a scratch.

– Just lighting a lamp everyday and being with it will make some kind of difference. Once you light a flame, around it will happen a certain etheric sphere. Communication is better where there is an etheric sphere. Stories told around a camp fire have the maximum impact on people. Receptivity will be at it’s best.

– Different kinds of fire.
Jathara Agni — Digestive fire. When you’re hungry. One who has not eaten is not bothered about the sexual fire. Both are the same fire. Many people have this, make babies and eat. And if you transform it, it will become …
Chitta Agni — Intellect fire. With this fire you have to remind yourself about eating or family etc. What can happen 1000 years later you can see it now. Next it can transform into …
Bhoota Agni — Elemental fire. Yogis go underground, not eating, not breathing, etc. You have mastery over the life process, how to be born, how to die or not die.
Sarva Agni — Doesn’t go into it.

– So instead of judging the stories, try to focus on this agnis. Don’t judge others for their agnis nor judge your agni. Krishna plays all the agnis.
