{hinduloka} $title={Table of Content} Yuga system

There is so much new information flowing in regarding the galactic time cycle ( Yuga ) and its impact on society, culture, and human consciousness.

Yuga is a cycle within a cycle that forms the universal outpouring of energy into various rhythmic alternating patterns and influences the continual manifestation of life, consciousness, and form. 

The Sanskrit term “ Yuga ” translates as “turning, turning and turning” and relates to the ancient notions of cyclical transformation found in the Yuga system and the ancient science of how light manifests and develops as form. 

Yuga philosophy in Hinduism has key insights into the creation, origin, distribution, transformation and extinction of light. In the esoteric belief system everything is light. It is meant symbolically and literally. 

All atomic shapes result from photon vortices. Photons spin and spin to form subatomic particles, these resonate to form atoms, then molecules, molecular lattices, cells, cellular lattices, and so on, to the shape of planets, suns, galaxies, and galaxy clusters.

Like certain geometric values ​​that do not change, the Yuga interval and the duration of this cycle are eternal coordinates and an unchanging principle that exists throughout the motion, magnitude, and distance of the entire Earth, Moon, Sun, and planetary systems. These variables have also been described previously in constellations of stars, in physical and chemical formulas, in sound vibrations and in radiation patterns and the proportions of light and color.

For the ancient philosophers, Space and Time were vast fields of resonance, linking the forms and energies of the cosmos. 

Time and space are very different conceptualizations, partly physical and partly metaphysical, respectively. The eternal geometrical laws of spatial symmetry, dimensions and relationships found in circles, triangles, squares, cubes, and tetrahedrons are the exact same laws and proportions that govern the cycle and duration of time. It is time that imparts a spiraling pattern of growth, movement, and space through resonant proportions between energy and form.

Time in modern science is a system of measurement associated with recurring or recurring patterns of events such as day and night, expansion and contraction, rising and falling levels of pressure, temperature or entropy. A deeper view of Time is one that sees the process of Time itself as the primary source of organization, order and growth of all systems and their source of entropy. This is the philosophy of time that underlies the ancient cyclical theory of the Yuga.

The four epochs of the Yuga system are:

  1. The Golden Age is Four Yugas (24192 years)
  2. The Silver Age is Three Yugas (18,144 years)
  3. The Bronze Age was Two Yugas (12,096 years)
  4. The last Iron Age or Kali Age, was the One Yuga. (6048 years)

The 10 Yugas of these four ages are equal to 60,480 years and are called Kalpa . Together these ten Yugas are needed to express the 4 ages of mankind and nature. The Yuga-Kalpa cycle ends in death and destruction on all levels, micro and macro. 

The dissolution through the Yuga also gave rise to a thorough transfiguration dynamic. Without death there is no rebirth or resurrection.

  1. The Kali Yuga began in 3606 BC. Its twilight period begins in 1938 and will take us to the year 2442. This was the Iron Age ( Kali Yuga ) which was known for its progressive moral decline, excessive materialism, violence, hypocrisy and contention. This is known as the age of conflict and is marked by paradoxes, illusions, corruption and those who 'commit crimes in secret'. Human knowledge and powers are limited to the gross material world and the mind is centered on matters of material objectivity. Also the spread of flawed doctrines will emerge during this cycle of descent of time and “the young will grow old and the old will become childish and senseless as this era is immersed in the roar of technological turbulence.”
  2. Dwapara Yug A or the Bronze Age was an era in which human beings gain an understanding of the power of a more subtle and things of creation are more subtle, such as the fact that all the material - all forms of atoms - is nothing but the expression of energy and vibration style.
  3. The Treta Yuga or Silver Age was an age in which knowledge and power expanded over the attributes of universal magnetism, a source of positive, negative, and neutralizing power.
  4. The Satya Yuga or Golden Age is the age in which understanding of the source of universal magnetism, its principle of polarity and its intelligence reaches out to understand the mysteries of Vibration, the creative force that sustains the Universe.

Hindu Time Yuga Cycle

The Yuga system describes the process by which the qualities and potentials expressed in the manifestations of life will change and determine the forces and configurations that govern the universe itself. 

The whole process of Yuga is a period of 'pregnancy' in the realization of our true human form and function. That is, material life is not forever destined to be this endless comedy-tragic, but rather the unfolding of the cycle of light and darkness, beauty and deformation, transformation and elimination, a cycle that is always moving towards the purification and perfection of a life of an incarnate being, aware of its own nature and universal nature of the game.

There is a lot of confusion surrounding the actual Yuga time frame as the Yuga system takes on two very different but parallel formations. 

  1. The first is the universal system or "God" which comes from the Rig Veda . It deals with time frames in millions of years. 
  2. The second is the “Human” Yuga system. It deals with time frames in thousands and tens of thousands of years and has historical cultural sources in the Puranic texts .

The ancient text of the Laws of Manu states that the length of the Golden Age was 4800 years + 3600 years. Silver Age + 2400 years, Bronze Age + 1200 years, Iron Age for a total of 12,000 years for one arc. 

According to this text two arcs or 24,000 years will complete the cycle. This figure of 24,000 is so close to the 25,920 year cycle that many people believe that the Yuga cycle and the Precession cycle are the same. Actually no. 

To use metaphors which will be discussed in greater depth such as: The Precession of the Equinox gives what might be considered a 'musical scale' in its totality; whereas the Yuga cycle is the 'song' played on that scale. It is the special harmonic and pitch intervals that mark important events and shifts in the cycle.

Other Sanskrit texts such as the Rig Veda combine this number 12,000 with the very high value of 4,320,000 years, multiplying it by 360. This large number represents the Year of Brahma (God), and corresponds to the 'universal' or 'divine' system as stated above and represents the evolution of the planet as a whole, not just the evolution of mankind.

For this we will use the Yuga cycle control number as 6048 years. It is a 'Human' Yuga system and is based on the work and research of Sri Yukteswara, Alain Danielou, Robert Lawlor, and Jose Diez Fiaxat, and is rooted in the Puranas .

The Yuga Cycle and the Precession of the Equinox

The Yuga Cycle and the related Precession Cycle. But the Yuga cycle is not the same as the Equinox Precession. These are two intertwined cycles that move together as one – even though they are not the same. 

The Precession Cycle is about 25,920 years with 12 Ages of 2160 years each. This Age of Precession is the Age of the Zodiac. 

The Yuga Cycle is actually related to the Harmonics of the Precession cycle. In other words, if the Precession Cycle is plotted as a waveform, the harmonic points, will mark the key points of creation, destruction, and transformation in the Yuga cycle. 

As a simple but important opening example, we will note here that the Precession Cycle shifted from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius during 2008-2012, with the midpoint on the 2010 summer solstice. This date shifts to the Age of Aquarius to coincide with the Mayan prophecy. 2012. 

For this reason many people think that the creation, destruction, and transformation of our planet will occur within that time frame. This of course did not happen. 

The Yuga cycle corresponds to the harmonic point of the Precession cycle

This means the end of the current Kali Yuga will occur exactly on the 1/5th through the Age of Aquarius. This is an important harmonic point, which we will explore in detail. This means that the end of the current Kali Yuga, and the associated shift in human consciousness will occur in the year 2442 – although this figure is still uncertain.

It also helps us understand why the ancients traditionally regarded the transition between one age or zodiac sign and the next as a bad omen.
