Wish you a very Happy Sri Nandana Nama Samvatsara Chandramana Yugadi. In this festival I am eager to share some information about the our Hindu System of Time and Nandana Nama Samvatsara Phala.
In this modern time most of the people following English Calendar than Hindu Panchaga. When any festival or any auspicious event to perform one will refer Panchanga or contacts a vedic Astrologer. Modern Students are celebrating English New Year than Yugadi. Our Hindu System of Calendar created by Lord Vishnu. By the grace of God I am happy to share few lines about our ancient System of Time.
The Supreme Maha Vishnu - the omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient, creator, protector, destroyer, giver of knowledge, ignorance, bondage and liberation creates Chaturmukha Brahma from his Navel. He then creates the universe manifesting Himself in the four-faced Brahma. The life of a universe is linked to the life span of the Chaturmukha Brahma.
The life span of Brahma is 100 cosmic years (Caturmukha brahmaNaH paramAyurvarShashataM). This quantum is denoted as Para.
1 cosmic year = 360 cosmic days.
1 cosmic day = 28 Manvantaras (14 Manvantaras = day, 14 manvantaras = night).
1 Manvantara = 71 Mahayuga.
1 Mahayuga = 4 Yugas (43 lakh 20 thousand human years)
4 yugas = Krita, Treta, Dvapara, Kali.
Krita Yuga = 17 lakh 28 Thousand human years 17,28,000.
Treta yuga = 12 lakh 96 Thousand human years = 12,96,000.
Dvapara yuga = 8 lakh 64 thousand human years = 8,64,000.
