Periods of time - Kalpa,Yugas and Brahma.

 Before we come to an understanding of Kalpas( which follows in my nxt post ) its important to understand the calculations of Period of time
as described in Mahabharata and Bhagvad Gita.

"Two kalpas constitute a day and night of Brahma. A "month of Brahma" is supposed to contain thirty such days (including nights), or 259.2 billion years. According to the Mahabharata, 12 months of Brahma (=360 days) constitute his year, and 100 such years the life cycle of the universe. Fifty years of Brahma are supposed to have elapsed, and we are now in the shvetavaraha-kalpa of the fifty-first; at the end of a Kalpa the world is destroyed "
According to Bhagvad Gita it is understood that material universe is limited.There is a mention of four types of Yugas (ages) Satya ,Treta,Dvapara and Kali..Satya Yuga lasts for 1,728,000 years,Treta 1,296,000,Dvapara 8,64,000 and Kalki,the Yuga we are living in for over past 5000 years lasts for 4,32,000 years .  In Kali-yuga vice increases to such a point that at the termination of the yuga the Supreme Lord Himself appears as the Kalki avatāra, vanquishes the demons, saves his devotees, and commences another Satya-yuga. Then the process is set rolling again.These four Yugas ,rotating a thousand times ,comprise one day(this one day is  known as Kalpa which consists of a thousand cycles of Yugas ) of Brahma and it takes the same number to comprise one night. Brahma lives one hundred of such years and then dies.(Bhagavad -Gita)

An understanding of Brahman......


As per hindu scriptures Brahman is one supreme universal spirit ,a spirit which is neither male nor female thus considered , gender neutral and  is the origin and support of the universe.It is the ultimate essence of material phenomena that can not be seen or heard but whose natures known through ones beliefs of self knowledge Brahman is  considered to be the foundation from which material things originate and to which they return after their dissolution. Brahman is infinite Being, infinite Consciousness, and infinite Bliss.Brahman is proclaimed to be the reality behind everything in this universe. So, from the perspective of the Body, Atma (Soul or Self) is Brahman. From the perspective of the World, Brahma (the "Creator" deity)is deemed as the Brahman.  From the perspective of Knowledge, Veda is Brahman. So, in one sense whatever we see around is all Brahman. Brahman is hence not an unidimensional aspect. It needs to be viewed and understood from varied perspectives.infinite Bliss.  Brahman is the Ultimate Truth, so in comparison to Brahman, every other thing, including the material world, its distinctiveness, the individuality of the living creatures are all untrue.It is Brahman , which is behind everything that exists and can possibly exist.  it is beyond human comprehension.As explained inThe Hindu Vedas and Upanishads "Truth is one", and all is Brahman. This explains the Hindu view that "All paths lead to the one Truth, though many sages (and religions) call upon it by different names.

To conclude "Brahman is everything - everything you see in front of you plus countless things you cannot see. It is obsccured by Maya, which is also an attribute of Brahman"

The beginning of new age

There are various  theories about world coming to an end 2012 . .A scientist named Zecharia Sitchin states that Nibiru has been involved in a planetary collision sometime in history,destroying a planet known as Tiamat located between Mars and Jupiter and within the solar system. The following event was belived to have created Earh,Moon and the astroid belt. It is strongly belived that Nibiru is expected to collide with earth again in 2012.
 According to the Sumerian documents, the meaning of Nibiru means “planet of the crossing”, hence the popular nickname – Planet X. Planet X is a term generally used by scientists and researchers to distinguish an identified planet.
interpretation of this transition postulates that this date marks the start of time in which Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 2012 may mark the beginning of a new era. Others suggest that the 2012 date marks the end of the world or a similar catastrophe. Scenarios suggested for the end of the world include the arrival of the next solar maximum, or Earth's collision with a black hole or a passing asteroid or planet called "Nibiru".
Scholars from various disciplines have dismissed the idea of such cataclysmic events occurring in 2012. Professional Mayanist scholars state that predictions of impending doom are not found in any of the extant classic Maya accounts, and that the idea that the Long Count calendar "ends" in 2012 misrepresents Maya history and culture. Astronomers and other scientists have rejected the proposed events as pseudoscience, stating that they are contradicted by simple astronomical observations.

Its birth pangs began some 4.6 billion years ago as rock and ice particles swirling around the young sun collided and merged, snowballing to produce ever larger planetary building blocks. In violent pileups, they smashed together to create planets, including the infant Earth. In the turmoil, another body, as big as Mars, struck our planet with the energy of trillions of atomic bombs, enough to melt it all the way through. Most of the impactor was swallowed up in the bottomless magma ocean it created. But the collision also flung a small world's worth of vaporized rock into orbit. Debris quickly gathered itself into a ball, and since then Earth history has unfolded beneath the blank stare of the moon.
After the moon's fiery birth, the Earth's surface cooled. Even so, our planet remained an alien world for the next 700 million years; scientists call this time the Hadean, after the Greek underworld. Rafts of solid rock drifted in the magma like dark ice floes. Gases hissed from the cooling rock—carbon dioxide, nitrogen, water vapor, and others—enveloping the planet in a scalding atmosphere devoid of oxygen. As the temperature dropped further, the steam condensed into rain that tell in primordial monsoons and filled the ocean basins.
These first oceans may have been short-lived. Space rubble left over from the birth of the planets—chunks of rock tens to hundreds of miles across—bombarded Earth throughout the Hadean. The greatest impacts might have boiled the oceans away, forcing the process of cooling and condensation to begin again.
By 3.8 billion years ago the impacts relented. Liquid water could persist. About that time, perhaps in the oceans, lifeless chemical reactions crossed a threshold, producing molecules complex enough to reproduce themselves and evolve toward greater complexity. Life was on a road that led, as early as 3.5 billion years ago, to single-celled, blue-green cyanobacteria that flourished in the sunlit parts of the oceans. By the trillions, these microscopic organisms transformed the planet. They captured the energy of the sun to make food, releasing oxygen as a waste product. Little by little they turned the atmosphere into breathable air, opening the way to the diversity of life that followed.
Those days are long gone, but the processes that turned our planet from a hell to a habitable world are still on view today. Primordial heat left over from the planet's formation still bursts out in volcanic eruptions, spilling lava that exudes gases like the young, cooling Earth. In the planet's harshest environments today, cyanobacteria reign as they have for billions of years. And each time a plant gains a toehold on newly cooled lava, the victory of life over lifeless rock—won so long ago on the young Earth—is affirmed again.

Aquarian age........

"This age will be an age of splendour and of light, because it is the home of the Holy Breath; and the Holy Breath will testify anew for Christ, the Logos of the eternal Love. At first of every age this Logos is made manifest in flesh so man can see and know and comprehend a Love that is not narrow, circumscribed. Twelve times in every revolution of the sun this christed Love of God is made full manifest in flesh upon the planes of earth, and you may read it in Akasha the wondrous lessons that these Christs have taught to man." — Dan Costian (Ph.D), Bible Enlightened

According to Nicholas Campion there are almost 70 dates for the beginning of the Age of Aquarius covering a range of 1500 years. There is a mention of interesting synchronicity that occured in 1962 involving ninteenth century French hoaxer and known American Jeanne Dixon.In 1890;s Gabriel Jogand primarily to agitate superrstitious Catholics ,deliberately devised and publicized a myth that the Antichrist(there is a mention of antichrist in the form of Lord Kali in Hindu mythology as well ,for ref plz see my previous blog was going to be born in 1962.Campion constructed the horoscope computed from Dixon's estimated time and transposed it to Jerusalem and discovered that there had been a Solar Eclipse on the previous day when all of the traditional seven planets were in the sign of Aquarius. This is an interesting possibility for the entrance of the Age of Aquarius, but was not accompanied by an significant world events which would justify such a selection. This is also true persuasively connected with any major world events which would justify their claims. However, it could be reasons that the entrance into the Age of Aquarius is an inner, rather han an outer transformation, which could be the case.
And the fact is according to various prophecies and astrologers  The Age of Aquarius began on Feb4;1962 and was seen in all the countries  in the world,by scientists,astrologers,etc. It is a proven fact,at tht time a there was an eclipse of the sun and the moon ,the Astronomers of the whole world were witness to something unexpected. All  planets of our solar system met in council under constellation of Aquarius,such an event happens only when an age occurs.
Excerpt from "The Age of Aquarius and Hercolubus"

Will come to significance of Aquarius age in my next post .
