‘Sapt Sindhu’. Yes, India thousands of years ago was called as Sapt Sindhu leaving out southern India. Sapt refers to 7 and Sindhu is today’s Indus river. The people of Sapt Sindhu were the first’s one to build Kingdoms like Manu. They were the ones with strategical mindset. This is all part of India’s grand history. But today’s historians treat them as Mythology citing no proper clues or proofs.
There’s another difference between in India’s history and western history. In India, we fail to acknowledge the ancient leaders by calling them mythical characters, whereas westerners proudly recognise their leaders. Whilst this has increased in the last 70 years, this thought process has to change. It’s the need of the hour for Indian to deep dive into History and accepts the truth of India.
Time is one concept that we have borrowed from Westerners. How was time calculated before?
Let’s understand the concept of time in detail in next few minutes. First and foremost, according to conspiracy theorists, June 21st 2020 will see end of the world. Whatever may be the logic behind this, let me explain how it’s not going to be the end of the world today.
Hinduism or people with roots from Sapt Sindhu believe in following the Sapt Rishi Calendar. Before this was introduced in the year 6,676 B.C, one yuga was 5 years. After the Sapt Rishi Calendar, each yuga got corrected to 3,000 years.
In that case, you must be wondering how many yugas will the Earth last? Those who know the 4 yugas will quickly calculate the world will end in 12,000 years. Yes, there are four yugas; namely Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dwapara Yuga and Kal Yuga. But no, the world won’t end in 12,000 years. Because yugas are like seconds and there’s something called as Manvantara – an equivalent to a minute. One Manvantara is equal to 12,000 years. ‘Manvantara’ means Manu Antara. This translates to Human’s Existence.
So, like it takes 60 seconds to complete a minute, it takes 12,000 years to complete one Manvantara. As per Vedic calculations, there are totally 71 Manvantaras. That’s 8,52,000 years. Right now, we are living in 28th Manvantara. We have passed 27 Manvantaras, that is 3,24,000 years. We Humans still have 5,26,000 years before we could even think that the World would end.
Did I say the end of the World? No, it’s just the end of Human Species.
Once the Human’s existence gets perished in next 3,24,000 years, another species will come and dominate. For example, Dinosaurs lived for 50 million years and dominated the earth. We are excavating the existence of Dinosaurs by finding their corpses. These Dinosaurs lived around 250 million years ago. Earth is still older than that. Geologists have already proven that age of Earth is 4.5 billion years.
Let’s do some more math.
- 10 lakhs = 1 million
- 100 crores = 1 billion
- 450 crores = 4.5 billion
That way, Earth’s life is 450 crores and Human’s would live for 8.5 lakh years. This is just 0.08 crore years and it’s just 0.01%. Astonishingly this means 99.99%-time human beings were not in the earth. This Vedic Calculations prove the World won’t end on June 21st, so everyone fearing take a chill pill.
Why would you call 12,000 years as Manvantara?
As per the writings in Puranas, it’s believed that a new ‘Manu’ will come at the end of the ascending cycle of Satya yuga. He will restore the order in Humanity along with Sapt Rishis. Everything gained by humanity in terms of technology and other inventions would be lost. Humans will have newer challenges and higher levels to reach. But that’s only at the end of two Maha yugas. Each Maha yuga is 12,000 years and two of them is 24,000 years.
They are also called an ascending cycle and descending cycle of 12,000 years each. So, for every 24,000 years i.e. at fag end New Manu would come.
Let’s understand this with an example. The ascending and descending cycle of Yugas. In the descending cycle, Yugas move from Satya Yuga to Kali Yuga. Once it is finished the ascending cycle starts from Kali Yuga and goes till Satya Yuga. The 27th Manvantara started in the year 15,676 B.C.
Here is how the cycle of ascending and descending yugas look like. Remember each yuga is for 3,000 years.
15676 B.C to 12676 BC we had Ascending Cycle of Satya Yuga. In my previous posts, I had written about Manu born in 14500BC which is in this period.
As the ascending cycle ends, the descending cycle of 12,000 years and Maha Yuga starts.
- 12676 B.C – Descending Satya Yuga Starts
- 9676 B.C – Descending Treta Yuga Starts
- 6676 B.C – Descending Dwapara Yuga Starts
- 3676 B.C – Descending Kal Yuga Starts
676 B.C – Descending Kal Yuga Ends and Ascending Kal Yuga Starts, also 28th Manmantara begins.
- 2324 AD Ascending Dwapara Yuga Starts
- 5324 AD Ascending Treta Yuga Starts
- 8324 AD Ascending Satya Yuga Starts
As calculated here, after 8324 AD and before 11324 AD there will be a new Manu on the earth. At the end of 28th Manvantara, Manu will come to earth and there will be a completely new way of life. Very few humans will be left, most spiritual and intellectual begins will be living and taking forward the Human’s Existence.
In the next post, we will be looking at the difference between the Indian system of calculating time.
