Roshan Chaudhary: VEDIC CALCULATION
All Vedic knowledge is given by Krishna (Vishnu) to the first living being, Brahma, at the beginning of each cycle of creation and annihilation in each of the millions of universes. The duration of each cycle for this universe is 311 trillion,40 billion years. We are currently 155.522 trillion years into thecurrent cycle.
“One day of Brahma lasts one thousand cycles of four yugas [4.32 billion years]. The night is also of the same duration. At the start of Brahma’s day, all living beings become manifested from the un-manifest state. Then at night, all living beings become un-manifest again. This is repeated again, and again. At the beginning of each day of Brahma, all living beings are manifested, and at night, they are helplessly un-manifested.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 8.17-19)
The four Yugas (Ages). There are four ages in which we keep circulating, one after the other: Satya Yuga: The age of truth. Only one religion (Sanatan Dharma) exists in the whole World. The Yuga lasts 1.728 million years. Treta Yuga: The introduction of ignorance takes place in this age, but still only one religion exists in the whole World. The Yuga lasts 1.296 million years. Dvapara Yuga: Decline in the truth and religious values take effect in this age, but still only one religion is followed in the whole World. The Yuga lasts 864,000 years. Kali Yuga: The age of darkness, ignorance, and degradation. Many man made religions and deviations mushroom in the World. The Yuga lasts 432,000 years. We are currently 5000 years into Kali Yuga. As each day passes, man is becoming more ignorant and degraded. Amazing life Span of Brahma As mentioned in the previous verse (8.17-19), one day of Brahma lasts one thousand cycles of four yugas. 1000 cycles of four yugas is: 1000 x (1.728+1.296+0.864+0.432)=100 x (4.32 Million) = 4320 Million = 4.32 Billion years.
Thus one day of Brahma is 4.32 Billion years, and he lives for 100 of his years. Which is 311 trillion, 40 billion years for us. 4.32 Billion x 2 x 30 x 12 x 100 = 311 trillion, 40 billion years.
Brahma has already lived for 155.522 trillion years, this is his current age.
Now, From the above calculations. The duration of each cycle is 311 trillion, 40 billion years. In the current cycle, the universe has existed for 155.522 trillion years old and it will end after 155.518 trillion years. This universe will be here for another 155.518 trillion years. But you won’t be, your life may end at any time..HARE KRISHNA! COMPILED FROM “BHAGAVAD GITA AS IT IS” by ” HIS DIVINE GRACE A.C.BHAKTIVEDANT SWAMI PRABHUPADA”
