Will the world end in 2025 ?
This question has stolen the sleep of people all over the world. People have been making various theories in support of this prediction without any solid grounds to it.
I strongly believe that this is just another bogus prediction which will definitely not be true. The reason to this is already mentioned in our vedic puranas thousands of years ago.
Let us have a look how.
THE HINDU THEORY OF WORLD CYCLES
Traditional Hindu scriptures view history as cyclical in character, with vast repeating series of ages. Each age has its own particular qualities
According Bhagwat Geeta Chapter – 8 Verse no – 17
Such is the proper method of computing time.
One year of time on Earth equals one day and one night of the demigods (Devtas).
One year of demigods (Devtas) comprises of 360 earth years.
12000 such demigod (Devta) years makes 1 Mahayuga.(which equals to 4 million 320 thousand earth years)
1000 such Maha Yugas comprises Brahma’s day and another 1000 Maha Yugas comprises his night.
Only those who understand time in this frame of reference are actual knowers of day and night. Those beings whose knowledge is restricted to the rotations of the sun and moon are not knowers of day and night for their knowledge is limited.
The word Yuga in this verse is referring to a Maha Yuga referring to the four Yugas of Satya, Treta, Dvapara and Kali equalling 4 million 320 thousand years.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our Position in History
We are located in the fifty-first Brahma year of the life of our Brahma.
Within that Brahma year, we are in the first Brahma day, called the Varaha kalpa.
Within that Brahma day, we are in the Seventh manvantara, and in the 28th Maha Yuga of that manvantara. This would place us at about the 454th Maha Yuga of the 1,000 maha yugas that comprise this day of Brahma.
Within this Maha Yuga, we are in Kali Yuga. The 5112th year of Kali Yuga will correspond to the year 2,012 A.D.That means that we are fairly early in Kali Yuga and this age will continue more than 426,000 more years. So the theory of the world coming to an end in 2025 is completely wrong. We yet have 426,000 more years to go. Think of the amount of development, prosperity and knowledge our generations to come must have achieved till then. Think of a world full of peace, love, happiness and prosperity rather than wasting your energy in thinking of things which would demoralize you. All the best for the wonderful life you would be leading and God bless each and every being on this planet.
ONE COSMIC DAY OF CREATOR BRAHMA
(as per Hindu scriptures, particularly the Srimad-Bhagavatam)
The one day of Brahma is divided into 14 periods. Six such periods are over. We are now in the 7th.
Each period is named after the One Ruler who is appointed to rule the entire earthly world during that period. The generic name for such a ruler is Manu. The period is called a Manvantara.
The name of the present Manu is Vaivasvata, the son of the Sun-God.
