Relative age dating lesson
By the way, universe means one verse, the one verse which created this universe “OM” The Hindu religion is the only one of the world’s great faiths dedicated to the idea that the Cosmos itself undergoes an immense, indeed an infinite, number of deaths and rebirths.
For now, brahma represents our universe which has birth and death, a big bang and a big cruch, from a navel singularity.Vedas say that before the creation of the universe Lord Vishnu is sleeping in the ocean of all causes.His bed is a giant serpent with thousands of cobra like hoods. Brahma represents the universe which we all live in, and it is this Brahma who creates life forms. Vishnu is the personification of the eternal multiverse that exists forever without any beginning or end.A kalpa is made up of brahma’s one day and one night. We are in the 7th Manvantara of Brahma’s this day, say the vedas. We are in the 28th Mahayuga of this Manvantara say the vedas. We are in the Kaliyuga of our current Mahayuga say the vedas. So One Mahayuga has 10 Yugas of which four are in Satya Yuga, 3 in Treta Yuga, 2 in Dwapara and 1 in Kali Yuga.Satya Yuga lasts for 40% of its Mahayuga – Age of divine where humans need no physical means to exist and are in direct contact with the God Treta Yuga lasts for 30% of its Mahayuga – Age where bad deeds start appearing, still there is lot of truth, infact 3/4 of this age is still goodness Dwapara Yuga lasts for 20% of its Mahayuga-Dwapara means after the second, where there are almost equal amount of good and bad Kali Yuga lasts for 10% of its Mahayuga- Kali means Darkness in Sanskrit (not to be confused with Kaali which is godess), no wonder we are in this age Now finally we have reached to a timescale which we can relate to our own years. So a Mahayuga = 10 times the Kaliyuga i.e 4,320,000 solar years Let us do some reverse calculations now to find out the age of the universe as per the vedas.Vishnu represents the eternity that lies beyond our universe which has no birth or death and that which is eternal! Vedas say that thousands of brahmas have passed away!
In other words, this is not the first time universe has been created. Brahma lives for hundred years say vedas and we are in the first day of the 51st year of the brahma. And we are in the first day of the 51st year of our current brahma.
Now lets find out the age of our universe as per the vedas.
Let us consider the age of the Brahma to be the age of the universe.
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!
Each day of brahma is called a Kalpa, and this itself is very huge a number.
