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
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
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. "
