Timecycles & Measurements

Spring Satya yuga: 400 + 4000 + 400 = 4800 = 4 Charana

Summer Tretā yuga: 300 + 3000 + 300 = 3600 = 3 Charana

Autumn Dwāpar yuga: 200 + 2000 + 200 = 2400 = 2 Charana

Winter Kali yuga: 100 + 1000 + 100 = 1200 = 1 Charana


1 Chaturyuga / Mahāyuga = 4800 + 3600 + 2400 + 1200 = 12000 = 10 Charana = 1 Deva yuga

1 Manwantar = 71 Chaturyuga = 71 x 12,000 = 852,000

1 Kalpa = 15 x 4800 + 14 Manwantar = 72,000 + 14 x 71 Chaturyuga = 6 Chaturyuga + 994 Chaturyuga = 1000 Chaturyuga = 10,000 Charana

1 Brahmāhorātra = 2 Kalpa = 2000 Chaturyuga

1 Brahma-varsha = 360 Brahmāhorātra = 720,000 Chaturyuga

1 Para / Mahākalpa = 100 Brahma-varsha = 72,000,000 Chaturyuga = 1 Brahma-āyu


Till date (2017), 50 Brahma-varsha 0 Brahmāhorātra 6 Manwantar 27 Chaturyuga 9 Charana 5119 years i.e. {(50 x 720,000 + 6 x 71) x 12000 + 7 x 4800 + 27 x 12000 + 9 x 1200} x 7 + (unknown) = (4.32 x 1011 + 5,480,400) x 7 + (unknown) = 3.024 trillion 38,362,800 years have elapsed.


Age of the universe as per modern science = 13.8 billion years

If this age is assumed to be the elapsed age of present Kalpa, then duration of a Kalpa = 13.8 x 14/6.4 = 30.2 billion years [ 28 Chaturyuga means 0.4 Manwantar, and currently it is 7th Manwantar, and 1 Kalpa = 14 Manwantar]

∴ duration of a Brahmāhorātra = 2 x 30.2 = 60.4 billion years

Number of Brahmāhorātra elapsed = 3.024 trillion / 60.4 billion = 50.066 which is suprisingly in agreement with the Vedic timescale.


13.8 billion / 38,362,800 = 360 ???
