Philosophical openness[edit]

The notion which the article presents in the opening lines (per 20th of November 2009 GXIII), with the wording: when mankind is governed by gods, makes an allusion to the contemporary use of the concept 'government'; in addition to any presumed state of governing of humankind in the indefinite pasttime. The lack of the future sense potential indicates that the 'model author' of the article (a label of our wikiconcensus, as opposed to each individual empirical author) are ignorant of a cyclic conception of time. Thus, in order for the article to improve this notion, we need to create a notion of a future time as much. The whole idea of the vedic philosophy regarding time is cycling, I dare say, a cycle with many wheels (chakras). The way mankind is governed by gods, in respect of the philosophy, is due to the notion of the perfection in incarnating the heavenly ideas, aspects of divinity. In tantric philosophy reincarnation may be regarded as a tantra (let say an art of zen). Humankind is thus not governed in any repressed sense, but completely one with the divine, astral, situation. It is complete Svaraj, conferring the self-rule-concept Mahatma Gandhi used in regard of Satya Graha, the philosophical basis of the entire peace movement. When taking the starting point of understanding Time as an illusion, although relatively true, Kali Yuga and Satya Yuga may be looked upon as the difference between the states of being within the illusion of time, and being without any illusion of time (cf. apocalypso meaning that everything is uncovered]]. Kali Yuga refers to the state of being in a time of collective darkness. in contrast to Satya Yuga, an imagined time where the fog has cleared, and each others access to each and everyones seeds of truth are not hindered, thus paraphrasing Mahatma Gandhi referring to an era of true enlightenment, as a very present possibility. Kali and Satya is like night and day. The other two Yugas are likened with dusk and dawn, vesper and matin. The relative future understood as from now until death, and the past in which we put our births until now'. It is important to make clear that these conceptions of time are philosophical and regarding the art of history and future adventures, rather than being fixed to any assumed historicity--95.34.124.8 (talk) 17:21, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Lifespan[edit]

i have the following sources for my lifespans:

Move?[edit]

I believe this should be moved to Krita Yuga or Kruta yuga as the term "Satya yuga" is more of a recent origin and employed more to indicate the yuga that would be dawning next after the current Kaliyuga. --Gurubrahma 11:03, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Agree for a redirect. --rgds. Miljoshi | talk 11:06, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Agree I also agree, don't have an account for some reason... but Alan Watts also agrees.

Should This reference be here?[edit]

I dont know what is revelance of putting this entry of " Ayyavazhi mythology". There are other cults in hinduism which have their own interpretation of Puranic Yugas. Lokesh 2000 05:22, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

The Time for the New Yuga[edit]

I think that this page should include as a short point an estimate of when the next Satya Yuga is to be expected.--Lighthead 01:52, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Infobox[edit]

Why is the infobox "Concepts of Heaven" under this article? The one is not related to the other in any way as far as i see. --Trickstar (talk) 00:08, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Inconsistencies[edit]

First paragraph: "The average lifespan in the satya yuga is 100,000 years".

Paragraph "The Satya Yuga according to some holy texts": "The average life expectancy of a human being in Satya Yuga is believed to be over 400 years".

Same paragraph, later: "The average life expectancy of a human being in Satya yuga was approximately 4000 years."

I think this info should be checked, because such inconsistencies will lower the credibility of Wikipedia.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bdaniel7 (talkcontribs) 15:16, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

true, the satya yuga began 4.32 billion years before the mahayuga. The satya yuga began before organic life, so its incomprehensible to obtain. The Mahayuga however are the four other yugas, they are in progress on this planet. Kali yuga thus began 3102 bce. The krita, treta, dwarpa and kali yugas however are in this reality. The advanced soul can comprehend the krita yuga effectively, because it mimics the satya yuga. It is the first or in other words one day of brama which is equal to the previous day, 4.32 million, a fraction of 4.32 billion which makes up a year or 411 trillion human years. To a braman, 306 million years is one manu, 14 manus is absolute hell or earth and the physical plane as 992? years of mahayugas. The 4 yugas consist of a mahayuga or 4 million years of the 306. What islam teaches is for people to enter pralaya or nitya the great night of brama. If this gets complex let me know. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Asfd666 (talkcontribs) 02:50, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

The bible itself is limited, 411 trillion years would be a wide aspect to achieve. Yes wide is not the way, however what jesus meant was wide is the path to destruction for the lords of karma. They can strike you down if you are against one hundred people instead of one for instance or against your own kind (which to me is odd). This is also a process of rebirth. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Asfd666 (talkcontribs) 02:55, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 16 July 2012[edit]

We are actually in the Dwapara Yuga, not the Kali Yuga,

Not done for now: I'd suggest you to discuss the topic of inclusion of this image and gain consensus among other editors. Regards,  Abhishek  Talk 12:36, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

the life span of individuals mentioned varies in several places, the language used is "old" and it reads badly but conveys its intent. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.4.64.132 (talk) 18:46, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

why shudras should serve Brahmins[edit]

Some section should be modified Its not mandatory that Shudras should serve Brahmins. Who is Brhamin ? Child born to Brahmin or Child born to Shudra? It has to be defined properly, some useless hypocrisy has been done in defining Brahmin. Mythology tells god has never taken birth in Brahmin family

Rama- Kastriya Krishna-Yadav Parasuram-Not Brahmin claimed to be Narshima-not affiliated any caste Hanuman-no caste Varaha-no caste all avatars of Vishnu- No caste
