When is it?
I'm unclear about when this age occurs; has it already happened? Is it going on now? Is it set to happen in the future? The article doesn't really seem to say. Pimlottc (talk) 20:52, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Imagine the face of a clock. The year 499 AD would lie at 6:00, which is the bottom, or the end of the descending and the start of the ascending yugas. The year 12,499 would lie at 12:00, which signifies the top or end of the ascending cycle/ start of the new, descending yugas. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:49, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
Various spellings and lowercase
01-Dec-2008: I am adding a footnote to list alternate spellings, so that a wiki-search can find the article by those other name variations. A search-analysis of about 950 webpage links, in Google, revealed an almost 50-50% split between spellings with v/w (with "Dwapara" slightly more common than "Dvapara"), and with lowercase "yuga" in about 40% of webpages. Perhaps 10% of webpages hyphenated the term. Hundreds of webpages dropped end-word "a" (as "Dwapar Yuga" or "Dwapar Yug"). So there were the following numerous variations (in webpages indexed by Google):
- Dwapara Yuga, Dwapara yuga, Dwapara-Yuga, Dwapara-yuga
- Dvapara Yuga, Dvapara yuga, Dvapara-Yuga, Dvapara-yuga
- Dwapar Yuga, Dwapar yuga, Dwapar-Yuga, Dwapar-yuga
- Dvapar Yuga, Dvapar yuga, Dvapar-Yuga, Dvapar-yuga
- Dwapar Yug, Dwapar yug, Dwapar-Yug, Dwapar-yug
- Dvapar Yug, Dvapar yug, Dvapar-Yug, Dvapar-yug.
01-Dec-2008: Among the various spellings found in world webpages (from Google Search), the following names have been defined as redirection titles in Wikipedia:
Perhaps other spellings should be redirected, as well. However, for rare spellings, readers should just use a wiki-search to find articles containing that spelling, rather than define a redirection title for every possible variation. -Wikid77 (talk) 12:02, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Interpretations of Swami Sri Yukteswar
Are you sure? That makes no sense! This is supposed to be a cycle of decline, so how can a cultural and intellectual renaissance possibly point to the arrival of an age of some lower order? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:51, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
