The Hindu religion is the oldest religion in the world today. They already know the ages of the world and what stage we are at and when each stage will finish and a new one starts, We are currently almost at the end of the Iron Age and soon to go into the Bronze age.

Here is the Hindu Theory of World Cycles"

" Brahmin Cosmogonic Cycles of Creation and Destructions

Brahma is the cosmic dreamer who alternately sleeps and wakes for equal Periods of time. The days and nights of Brahma are calculated to Brahma years, and the Brahma years are calculated to one Brahma lifetime. At the end of a Brahma lifetime all creation dissolves into the body of the cosmic dreamer. One Brahmin Cycle is as follows:

Age 1 - Kruta Yuga = 400 divine dawn years + 4,000 full divine Years + 400 twilight Years (4,800 years).

Age 2 - Treta Yuga = 3,600 divine Years (including dawn and twilight)

Age 3 - DvaPora Yuga = 2,400 divine years (including dawn and twilights)

Age 4 - Kali Yuga (which begins 2/17/3102 BCE and continues to the present age) = 1,200 divine Years.

Added together, this makes 12,000 divine years in all, or one Great Cycle ("Mahayuga"). A Mahayuga calculcated in terms of human years = 4,320,000 years.

One thousand Mahayugas = one Brahma daytime.

One full day and night of Brahma is calculated as the equivalent of 4,000,000 divine years * 360 or 8,640,000,000 human years. (Just as in our system the 24 hour day contains 86,400 seconds and each second is the length of time of the human heart beat).

360 days and nights of Brahma = one Brahma year.

100 Brahma years = one Brahma lifetime. Calculated in human years, one Brahma lifetime = 311,040,000,000,000 human years. "

" Vishwa-Karmas, the descendants of the Pancha Brahmas, were involved in the "architecture of the world". Thier work was classified as follows:

Descendants of Manu -> Iron
Descendants of Maya -> Wood
Descendants of Twastha -> Copper, Bronze
Descendants of Shilpi -> stone
Descendants of Vishwajna -> gold

Thier tools depend on the yuga, as described below.

In Krutha yuga -> from purity of mind
In Tretha yuga -> from sight
In Dwapara yuga -> from mantras
In Kali yuga -> using hands

However, this age of Kali is coming to an end. Vipras are gradually losing thier hold over the people. They have given up Veda Adhyayana, and have taken up Para Vidya (means all other professions, including western education). At the arrival of Kalki, they will be so poor and powerless as to not have enough to eat and wear. This process is evident in India, where there is an uprising against the upper-castes, mainly vipras. (incidentally, this upper-caste lower-caste business cropped up in kali yuga under the stewardship of vipra brahmins; before this, all castes were equally respected to thier service to the people).

In addition, just before the arrival of kalki, Vipras will lose control of Sringeri Mutt, and Vishwa-Karmas will get control of it. Also, Vishwa-Karmas will be restored to thier past glory.

Meanwhile, the original vedas have been written and hidden under a Tamarind tree in Kandi Mallaya Palli in Andhra Pradesh. Kalki will get it out for the benefit of the people. "

"Here is what what Veera Brahmam says in his Kaala Jnaana.

He says Kali Yuga will last for 5000 years after the passing away of Krishna, after which evil will have spread through out the world, setting the stage for the arrival of Kalki. He says all these things will take place before his arrival again.

What are the Signs of his arrival? VBS gives some clear signs of the arrival of Kalki, whose name is Veera Bhoga Vasanta.

1. There will be a rain of fire. Following this a strange thing will happen. 20 feet tall humans will appear and claim to be Kalki. (this is in India).

2. A huge comet will be born in the south; several people will die due to this.

3. Mammary glands will be born to the males of Cow, Goat, etc. and people will get milk from them.

4. Tigers will disappear completely from the forests.

5. The Sun will appear like a green colored human being (?)

6. Moon will be seen on a new moon day.

7. Wealth will arrive from other countries to India and India will be very rich and powerful.

8. Stones will break and fly about like crows and eagles; Stone horses and chariots will start to run.

9. Blood and pus will flow out from stones.

10. It will rain blood.

The following refers to the World War I:

"After 5017 years of Kali Yuga, during the year pingala, a terrible war will start .."

Considering 3102 BC as the year of beginning of Kali Yuga puts the end of Kali Yuga at 1898AD. 5017'th year of Kali Yuga means 1915 AD which was when World War I was taking place.

Other that this mention of the war, VBS mentions various events which have taken place during the past 100 years or are set to take place.

Chakravartin cakravartin (Sanskrit) [from chakra wheel, cycle + vartin turning, one who governs] Sovereign of the world, universal ruler; a title applied to several Hindu emperors, but referring particularly to Vishnu, who in the treta yuga in the form of a universal monarch protected the three worlds. At the end of kali yuga, legend states that Vishnu will appear again under his form of the Kalki-avatara, or Maitreya as the Buddhists say, reforming or doing away with the wicked and inaugurating a realm of spirituality and righteousness.

Equivalent to the Hebrew Enduring King

(Enoch 36:3). "Through each of these small portals pass the stars of heaven and run their course to the west on the path which is shown to them. And as often as I saw I blessed always the Lord of Glory, and I continued to bless the Lord of Glory who has wrought great and glorious wonders, to show the greatness of His work to the angels and to spirits and to men, that they might praise His work and all His creation: that they might see the work of His might and praise the great work of His hands and bless Him for ever.

Now compare the Hindu ages to the statue of Daniel from the Bible:

"The image is from the Book of Daniel (2:31-40) (in the Bible) Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image.
This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Interpretation of the Dream

Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.

And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. ---Daniel 2:37-45

Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. ---Daniel 7:23-27 "

When I first began looking at prophecy,it amazed me how many faiths have pointed to the same things!

Fascinating,to say the least!

Good of you to bring it up!

Thank you. What I also find interesting is their theory of sin percentage for each age:

" Maha Yugas
The smallest cycle is called a maha yuga. A maha yuga is 4,320,000 human years. Each maha yuga is subdivided into the following four ages, whose lengths follow a ratio of 4:3:2:1:

Satya Yuga (also called Krita Yuga)
This first age is 1,728,000 human years. Also known as the Golden Age or age of Truth. The qualities of this age are: virtue reigns supreme; human stature is 21 cubits; lifespan is a lakh of years, and death occurs only when willed.

Treta Yuga
This second age is 1,296,000 human years. Also known as the Silver Age. The qualities of this age are: the climate is three quarters virtue and one quarter sin; human stature is 14 cubits; lifespan is 10,000 years.

Dvapara Yuga
This third age is 864,000 human years. Also known as the Bronze Age. The qualities of this age are: the climate is one half virtue and one half sin; lifespan is 1,000 years.

Kali Yuga
The fourth and last age is 432,000 human years. Also known as the Iron Age. This is the age in which we are presently living. The qualities of this age are: the climate is one quarter virtue and three quarters sin; human stature is 3.5 cubits; lifespan is 100 or 120 years.

Toward the end of a Kali Yuga, various calamities cause a good deal of destruction. Baba Hari Dass states that creation disappears at the end of a Maha Yuga and remains in seed form inside Brahma.

However, other sources do not suggest anything so drastic,"

some have said that Jesus traveled to India during his "lost" years. I wonder if he found some truth in these teachings and adapted them for people in the middle east to understand. perhaps he sensed some divine truth in the teachings? hmmmm

You should check out "The Final Event: Dawn of the Age of Truth", which provides a detailed analysis of the four yugas and their relation to Mayan and Christian prophecies, and suggest that the 12,960 year cycle of four yugas is about to reset.

Why is it bias towards India? I mean aren't countries, skin color, race just an illusion of separation?

I'm not realy a fan of organised religion but astrophysicist Carl Sagan did say this about Hinduism:

"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. It is the only religion in which the time scales correspond, to those of modern scientific cosmology. Its cycles run from our ordinary day and night to a day and night of Brahma, 8.64 billion years long. Longer than the age of the Earth or the Sun and about half the time since the Big Bang. And there are much longer time scales still".

Carl Sagan

Cheers.

And Hinduism has it's root in dreaming which all reality flows from. I subsribe to that belief that this reality right now is a dream that we are all participating in.

That comes from my experiences with precognitive dreaming. Hinduism is an interesting religion to say the least. Has some truths for sure, but like all religion its wrapped up in anapamorphic dieties and ritual beliefs.

Like all other religions - all this stuff just sounds like a load of cr4p that somebody made up!

If you want to take folklore and fairy tales seriously that's your choice but it sounds like a load of stuff that somebody made up to scare everyone into place.

:-S

Yes, it is like a dream, when you dream you descend into a more viscous realm of conductivity for the mind, sometimes meeting other souls in a similar trance performing different activities together. That's a romanticised escape world, now we have HAARP and electromagnetic pollution to deal with so dreaming is a little different to say the least.

concerning Daniels prophecie..
Did Daniel say that the countries would never unite? I think Daniels prophecies will fail hard when the one world government gets here unless of coarse the rock that smashed the statue/kingdoms is the nwo, Im sure they think they are anyways.

posted on Jan, 4 2010 @ 07:06 PM

I think you'll find the sun has a greater electromagnetic influence on the planet than anything man has made. And HAARP can only affect the part of the ionosphere near to directly above it. It's not very powerful, and definitely isn't affecting you right now.

Here's an idea - let's use science to figure out what's going to happen in 2012. Oh, we have? And no scientific discoveries at all have ever pointed to cataclysmic events in 2012? Oh that's no fun! Let's keep on making stuff up and scaring ourselves! It's like ghost stories at camp! Yay!

Can someone summarize that for me, plz?

Tell me if the math adds up and if it's just coincidence and superstition.

I believe that Meher Baba was Kalki or the White Horse Avatar. 2012 or around that time may be it. Ahhhh so exciting!

Regardless of the 'words' above, it's the 'theme' that matters.
A Character is part of a word while a Character is a part of a Human Beeing. Serendipity I suppose.

The so-called repeating "Prophesys" in various religions, I believe can be explained that most religions started from the same base...of mythology..just repeated over and over and applied as people chose to apply them and usually totally out of context of the intent and without taking into consideration the time it was written and who the intended audience was.

There are only a very few base religions from which the rest have borrowed their stories/myths/propheys from.

point taken.

Looks like you did your homework on this thread, star and flag for you

Ive always wondered how come lots of religions have similar prophecys, I think most of them have there astronomy and cosmology correct, but then they distort them with stories which i think are suppose to be metaphors, but of course the masses take them as nothing but truth.

Like the bible, i think most of the bible is a metaphor, teaching lessons, and theres lots of good lessons in the bible, i just find it sad when people read the bible and claim its 100% real and they claim the bible is history.

If I ever decide to start a religion or cult, and I start talking about the future, I don't think I would mention things like ...

3. Mammary glands will be born to the males of Cow, Goat, etc. and people will get milk from them.

Even if it's true, it will just turn your followers off and make it harder for people to take your beliefs seriously.

Seriously though, great work on the rest. Even as an athiest, I think there is a lot to learn from most, if not all, religions. Star for you.
