The Truth

The Truth of Time

Finding something from nothing.

This page is dedicated to our indian culture which is foundation of all the world and this is what i believe so this page shows some of the posts that are astonishing.But believe me all the comments are true..

Now lets see some of the facts recieved from SHRIMADBHAGWAT GITA.

What is Time?

It is the hardest thing to answer.But we find an abstract in Shrimad Bhagwat Gita which says

“There is no beginning in the past and there is no end to the future. Creation is a manifestation in concrete terms of the Absolute. Dissolution is when all the created universe merges in the Absolute. And that is when the period of non-manifestation begins. The periods of manifestation and of non-manifestation alternate. These are the days and nights of Brahma.

Brahma Himself is a manifestation of the Absolute. He has a life of 100 years in His time.”

The concept of eternal and cyclical time lies at the heart of the Hindu world view and is closely related to the concept of atman. (Hindu sages claim that the individual’s self-understanding determines his or her perception of the world.) Hindus consider the real self to be ever-existing, not only in the future but also from the past. This notion of two-way eternity, however, is not reserved solely for the realm of spirit (Brahman) but extends to this temporal world. Within Hinduism we find no “year dot,” nor a final cataclysm. The closing of one door implies the opening of another. Destruction of the cosmos only portends its re-creation. The entire material world is thus subject to everlasting cycles of creation, sustenance and destruction.

This universe is said to exist for a lifetime of Brahma, the creator. His one day is 1,000 maha-yugas (great ages). Each maha-yuga consists of four yugas (ages), each progressively shorter and more degraded. They are the golden, silver, copper, and iron ages. According to tradition, we have had just over 5,000 years of Kali-yuga and there remain 427,000 years. At the end, the final incarnation of Vishnu, Kalki, is scheduled to appear, heralding the dawn of yet another golden age.

Key Points

  • The Hindu concept of time is cyclical (and eternal and degenerative).
  • The Western notion of time is linear (and limited and progressive).
  • There are four ages (yugas) that successively become more degenerated:
    1. Satya (Krita)
    2. Dvapara
    3. Treta
    4. Kali
  • We are now 5,000 years into Kali­yuga (the iron age, or the age of quarrel and hypocrisy.

About time-

  • a paramanu (परमाणु) is the normal interval of blinking in humans, or approximately 4 seconds
  • a vighati (विघटि) is 6 paramaanus, or approximately 24 seconds
  • a ghadiya (घटि) is 60 vighatis, or approximately 24 minutes
  • a muhurta is equal to 2 ghadiyas, or approximately 48 minutes
  • a nakshatra ahoratram (नक्षत्र अहोरत्रम्) or sidereal day is exactly equal to 30 muhurtas (Note: A day is considered to begin and end at sunrise, not midnight.).The day starts at about 4 am and ends at 4 am approximately i.e first muhurta of a day is called brahm muhurta.

alternate system

  • 10 twinklings of the eye = 1 Kásht́há
  • 35 Kásht́hás = 1 Kalá
  • 20 Kalás = 1 Muhúrtta
  • 10 Muhúrttas = 1 day (24 hours)
  • 50 days = 1 month
  • 6 months = 1 Ayana
  • 2 Ayanas = 1 year or one day (day + night) of the gods

  • a trasarenu is the combination of 6 celestial atoms.
  • a truti is the time needed to integrate 3 trasarenus, or 1/1687.5th of a second.
  • a vedha is 100 trutis.
  • a lava is 3 vedhas.[1]
  • a nimesha is 3 lavas, or a blink.
  • a kshanas is 3 nimeshas.
  • a kashthas is 5 kshanas, or about 8 seconds.
  • a laghu is 15 kashthas, or about 2 minutes.[2]
  • 15 laghus make one nadika, which is also called a danda.
  • 2 dandas make one muhurta.
  • 6 or 7 muhurtas make one yamah, or 1/4th of a day or night.[3]
  • 4 praharas or 4 yamas are in each day or each night.[4]

Lunar metrics

  • a tithi (also spelled thithi ) or lunar day is defined as the time it takes for the longitudinal angle between the moon and the sun to increase by 12°. Tithis begin at varying times of day and vary in duration from approximately 19 to approximately 26 hours.
  • a paksa (also paksha) or lunar fortnight consists of 15 tithis
  • a masa or lunar month (approximately 29.5 days) is divided into 2 pakshas: the one between new moon and full moon (waxing) is called gaura (bright) or shukla paksha; the one between full moon and new moon (waning) krishna (dark) paksha [5]
  • a ritu (or season) is 2 masa
  • an ayanam is 3 rituhs
  • a year is 2 Aayanas [6]

Tropical metrics

  • a yaama (याम) is 7½ Ghatis (घटि)
  • 8 yaamas 1 half of the day(either day or night)
  • an ahoratram is a tropical day (Note: A day is considered to begin and end at sunrise, not midnight.)

Reckoning of time among other entities

Reckoning of time amongst the pitr (ancestors).
  • 1 human fortnight = 1 day of the pitrs
  • 30 days of the pitrs = 1 month of the pitrs
  • 12 months of the pitrs = 1 year of the pitrs
  • The lifespan of the pitrs is 100 years of the pitrs (= 36,000 pitr years = 1500 human years)
Reckoning of time amongst the Devas.
  • 1 human year = 1 day of the Devas.
  • 30 days of the Devas = 1 month of the Devas.
  • 12 months of the Devas = 1 year of the Devas = 1 divine year.
  • The lifespan of the Devas is 100 years of the Devas (= 36,000 human years)
  • 2 Ayanas (six month periods, see above) = 1 human year or 1 day of the devas
  • 4,000 + 400 + 400 = 4,800 divine years = 1 Krita Yuga
  • 3,000 + 300 + 300 = 3,600 divine years = 1 Tretá Yuga
  • 2,000 + 200 + 200 = 2,400 divine years = 1 Dwápara Yuga
  • 1,000 + 100 + 100 = 1,200 divine years = 1 Kali Yuga
  • 12,000 divine year = 4 Yugas = 1 Mahayuga(also called divine yuga)
Reckoning of time for Brahma.
  • 1000 Mahayugas = 1 kalpa = 1 day (day only) of Brahma (4.32 billion human years; which is the actual scientifically estimated age of the Sun).

(Two kalpas constitute a day and night of Brahma)

  • 30 days of Brahma = 1 month of Brahma (259.2 billion human years)
  • 12 months of Brahma = 1 year of Brahma (311.04 trillion human years)
  • 50 years of Brahma = 1 Pararddha
  • 2 parardhas = 100 years of Brahma = 1 Para = 1 Mahakalpa (the lifespan of Brahma)(311.04 trillion human years)

One day of Brahma is divided into 10,000 parts called charanas. The charanas are divided as follows:

The Four Yugas
4 charanas (1,728,000 solar years) Satya Yuga
3 charanas(1,296,000 solar years) Treta Yuga
2 charanas(864,000 solar years) Dwapar Yuga
1 charanas(432,000 solar years) Kali Yuga

[7]

The cycle repeats itself so altogether there are 1,000 cycles of mahayugas in one day of Brahma.

  • One cycle of the above four yugas is one mahayuga (4.32 million solar years)
  • as is confirmed by the Gita statement “sahasra-yuga paryantam ahar-yad brahmano viduH”, meaning, a day of brahma is of 1000 mahayugas. Thus a day of Brahma, kalpa, is of duration: 4.32 billion solar years. Two kalpas constitute a day and night of Brahma
  • A manvantara consists of 71 mahayugas (306,720,000 solar years). Each Manvantara is ruled by a Manu.
  • After each manvantara follows one Sandhi Kala of the same duration as a Krita Yuga (1,728,000 = 4 Charana). (It is said that during a Sandhi Kala, the entire earth is submerged in water.)
  • A kalpa consists of a period of 1,728,000 solar years called Adi Sandhi, followed by 14 manvantaras and Sandhi Kalas.
  • A day of Brahma equals
(14 times 71 mahayugas) + (15 x 4 Charanas)
= 994 mahayugas + (60 Charanas)
= 994 mahayugas + (6 x 10) Charanas
= 994 mahayugas + 6 mahayugas
= 1,000 mahayugas

We are currently in the 28th kaliyuga of the first day of the 1st year of the shvetavaraha kalpa of the second parardha of Brahma in the reign of the 7th Manu, Manu Vaivasvata. This is the 51st year of the present Brahma and so about 158.7 trillion years have elapsed since he took over as Brahma.

The current Kali Yuga began at midnight 17 February / 18 February in 3102 BC in the proleptic Julian calendar.

The Truth of Life

well guys the abstract is taken from RAMAYANA and occurs when Shri Ram and Lakshman were crossing the river ganges and Vyadha Raja is scared to let them cross river in his boat,,,the lakshman tells the truth of life to vyadha raj…
he says lets compare our life with a dream….
dream-
1.Initially when a person goes to the bed for sleep he remembers his sole identity and the truth what he is and whats the reality..but when he sleeps and starts watching a dream he believes in the dream and find that one true..
2.suppose we are watching a bad dream in that case sometimes it happens that something shocking happens and we wake up in mid of the dream..thinking that was only a dream but even if we go to bed again we will not be able to sleep again.pleasantly i.e we are neither sleeping nor awake..
but sometimes when dream is too pleasant we dont want to wake up even if someone is forcing us to get awake and mostly we say ” let me sleep for few more moments”..

similarly in a persons life..
1.when a person is born he remembers his true identity and knows where he came from and what is his purpose in his life..but when he starts resembling his mother he forgets his real identity and is completely lost in this world thats what we call MAYA.(MA- not YA- existent)
2.if a person’s life is going bad and is a failure and depressed he ends his life..by committing a suicide or any accident happens to him..he though had died but he has to complete his tenure in this world thats why these people neither can live nor die..and enter a state of ghosts…
3.If we are living a good life and are completely dedicated in our life..then when our tenure ends of living we dont want to die..when “YAMDOOT” come to take us we dont want to go with that saying “let me live a few more years”…

    the points about time were quite interesting. indeed a lot of information is already there in our holy books. instead of imitating foreign knowledge, we indians should pay attention to our own wealth pool of knowledge. their understanding can put us in leader’s position in world.
