The Age of Wisdom/ Satya or Krita Yuga

The Age of Ritual/Treta Yuga

The Age of Doubt/ Dvapara Yuga

The Age of Conflict/ Kali Yuga


It is the latter Age in which we now live, and which we account for in our histories. It is
also believed by some, that the Kali Yuga is now ending -- or even that it has ended and
we are now in a transition period called the "Twilight of the Kali Yuga." Supposedly, in the
Twilight of the Kali Yuga, the Prime Creator gathers its data-collecting vehicles (i.e. us)
back into the Mind of God--- to make way for the next cycle, the coming new age.

It is, perhaps, dismaying to consider the idea that the human stint on life is nothing more
than that of a "data-collecting vehicle". Or that we're merely here to gather material for
a stand-up comedy sketch in the afterlife. But when one views the larger context of the
human experience, such a job description might be considerably more appealing. Even
pain becomes just more data points on the graph of human lives, and therefore, should
not be given any more significance than any other data point. Hey, I'm in pain. Wow.

Historic events on January 23

3102 BC - Epoch (origin) of the Kali Yuga.

One Kalpa, a day in the Mind of God, is made up of four cycles (aka yugas) and/or ages
known as the:

The Age of Wisdom/ Satya or Krita Yuga

The Age of Ritual/Treta Yuga

The Age of Doubt/ Dvapara Yuga

The Age of Conflict/ Kali Yuga


It is the latter Age in which we now live, and which we account for in our histories. It is
also believed by some, that the Kali Yuga is now ending -- or even that it has ended and
we are now in a transition period called the "Twilight of the Kali Yuga." Supposedly, in the
Twilight of the Kali Yuga, the Prime Creator gathers its data-collecting vehicles (i.e. us)
back into the Mind of God--- to make way for the next cycle, the coming new age.

It is, perhaps, dismaying to consider the idea that the human stint on life is nothing more

a stand-up comedy sketch in the afterlife. But when one views the larger context of the

Thanks Wings for that and the Dalai Lama quote...very interesting...I like the level of detachment that the idea of being 'perceivers' give to your interpretation of the Kali Yuga....

As to the subject of "A Day in The Mind Of God" I'm not sure if that what the Beatles "A Day In The Life" had in mind.. wink.gif

I need to attribute that quote to it's proper author! I found it fascinating and
exciting but it's from "The Library of Alexandria" website by Dan Sewell Ward
I'll add that to the piece above and thanks for reminding me.

As to the subject of "A Day in The Mind Of God" I'm not sure if that what the Beatles "A Day In The Life" had in mind.. wink.gif
