Vedas say that before the creation of the universe Lord Vishnu is sleeping in the ocean of all causes.
So far 360 x 50= 18000 days have passed for Brahma This is equivalent to 18000 x 2000 x 4320000 Human Years In other words 155,520,000,000,000 Human Years Add the current day of Brahma which is 1,972,944,456 Humans Years So as per the vedas, the current age of the universe is 155,521,972,944,456 Years which is about 155,522 billion years !!!Vedas also say that Lord Hanuman will be the next Brahma.Well, thats something I have to do some research into later, the more things to think about, the more happy and occupied I am Coming back to a day of the Brahma. Vedas say that during the day Brahma is busy in creation of life and during the night all life he created is absorbed back into him!So we will be there only for this day of Brahma, which is the first day of his 51st year.But dont feel sad, let me promise you, this is a pretty long day.By the way, in the trinity of Creator, Maintainer and Destroyer as mentioned in the vedas, Lord Vishnu is the maintainer. While Vishnu is asleep, a lotus sprouts of his navel (note that navel is symbolised as the root of creation! Brahma is the personification of our temporary physical universe that was created in the big bang.
Brahma is said to have been created from the navel (which is a single point) of Vishnu, described as a lotus blooming out of the navel, much like our big bang universe.
This is one number which no modern theory can even come anywhere near to it.
As we saw earlier a day of Brahma has 2000 Maha Yugas (day night).
So let us calculate how many years have passed since today started for Brahma.
Step 1: For 6 Manvantaras we have 71x 6 = 426 Mahayugas Step 2: Then we have the gaps between each Manvantara which is 7 x 4 Yugas = 2.8 Maha Yugas Step 3: Then we have the current Mahayuga in our Manvantara which is 28th, we are in the last 1/10 of it (Remember Kaliyuga is the last of 4 yugas and spans 1/10 of a Mahayuga). So all put together we have 426 2.8 27.9 = 456.7 Mahayugas have been already spent in current day of Brahma.
Thanks to the blog visitor who invoked enough curiosity in me to crack down the age of the universe according to the vedas.
