Dear Dr Renuka
Clawed my way back on board this austere forum. For over a decade now, I have been into researching into what I
term "The History of the Future" - The Bhavishya Puranam - many fake and corrupted versions, even translated into
English are available. I cannot say with authenticity that we have found the real thing. Finding the palm leaves and getting them transcribed is a real task. Symbolism and seemingly deliberate encoding makes the jigsaw puzzle all the more complicated. Everything is written in 'past tense' - even some of the major, well-known events such as the advent of Gauthama the Budha, Jesus the Christ and Mohammed the Prophet have been written about, long long before these actually occurred and noted in recorded history.
Since someone mentioned Kali Yugam, Maha Pralayam etc - here's the Bhavishya Puranam's take on TIME:
A small extract - I am sure you know these already - just a recap:
Time: as defined in "The History of the Future" - if you have the time / care to read it :
The smallest unit of time is nimesha. This is the amount of time it takes to blink. Fifteen nimeshas makes
one kastha and thirty kasthas are one kala. Thirty kalas make one muhurtha and thirty muhurthas make
one day. Thirty days make one month and each month of divided into two lunar fortnights - shuklapaksha
and krishnapaksha .Six months make one ayana and two ayanas make one year. Three hundred and sixty
human years are equivalent to one year for the gods.
The lengths of the four yugas [eras] are defined in terms of years of the gods and not in terms of human years.
Satya yuga lasts for 4000 years, Treta yuga lasts for 3000 years, Dwapara yuga lasts for 2000 years and Kali
yuga lasts for 1000 years - this adds up to 10,000 divine years. The sandhyas and sandhyamshas are the
intervening periods between the yugas and these add up to 2000 divine years. Thus the four yugas taken
together last for twelve thousand divine years.
A kalpa has fourteen manvantaras. In each manvantara the cycle of four yugas occurs seventy one times.
Each manvantara is ruled by a Manu. There have been six manvantaras so far .
This is the seventh - ruled by Vaivashvatha Manu presently. One kalpa corresponds to one day for Brahma.
The six manus, whose manvantaras have passed are 1 . Swayambhuva, 2 . Svarochasha, 3 . Outtami,
4 . Tamasa, 5 . Raivatha and 6 . Chakshusha.
The seven manus, whose manvantaras are to follow the current Vaivashvatha Manvantara:
1 . Savarni Manu, 2 . Dakshasavarni Manu, 3 . Brahmasavarni Manu, 4 . Dharmasavarni Manu
5 . Savarna Manu, 6 . Rouchya Manu and 7 . Bhoutya Manu .
The Bhavishya Puranam is written in past tense - what is zapping is that the advent and lives of great and world-famous
personalities over the centuries such as Gouthama the Budha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed [ to name few ] are all
written in past tense - not as a prediction or or calculation or a foresight into the future, long long [ yugas why, maybe kalpas ]
before such events actually occurred [ in recorded history ] !
I think this is sufficient boredom, I've fed you for the day.
I shall mail you the verses [ with transcripts ] pertaining to Mohammed the Prophet, Jesus the Christ, birth and spread of new
religions etc if you are interested and can view and imbibe things from a neutral, unbiased, unprejudiced mind without any
pre-conceived notions or even a judgemental frame of mind.
