Are we in Duapar or Kaljug?

Recommended Posts

According to Sadhguru jee, we are in Duaper yug, not Kaljug. According to his calculations, Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev jee Maharaaj (incarnation of Almighty God) manifested himself in Duaper, not Kaljug.

Is he using a different system of calculations?

 

Bhul chuk maaf

In Vedas and Puranas, the cycle of the yugas is described as depicted in the above diagram.

This is the diagram he is going by. I have never encountered the description of this in any ancient Sanatan scriptures when reading them. Moreover, he is calculating the duration of the yugas through celestial or divine years which are much longer compared to human years.

Thus, Sadhguru got his calculations. 

Looking at the current circumstances, I agree with the first diagram and believe that we are currently in Kaliyuga. Furthermore, Kalki Avtar is yet to come.

Thanks for the information.

Any reference in Gurbani to the divine/celestial years?

Thanks

I'm not sure if Gurbani clearly talks about this, however, in SGGS it is mentioned that at the start of creation that Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh were created at the start and will later be destroyed when the great parloh comes. It is important to note that there is different types of parloh (some types are caused by Shiv ji, as he is the destroyer but there is one caused by Akal Purakh himself where not even Brahma, Shiv and Vishnu remain- the universe is destroyed completely to start a new). 

In the 5th Chapter of Kurma Purana is written as follows:

  1. At the close of that period, all living beings get dissolved in Prakrti, their source. Hence, this is called the reabsorption into Prakrti (Prakrta Pratisaicara) by wise men.

  2. It is said that in due course of time, Brahma, Narayana and Isa (Rudra), all the three, become merged in Prakrti and their remanifestation also is to take place.

  3. Thus, Brahma, the elements (or all living beings)and even Vasudeva and Sankara are created by Kala (time). He alone devours them again.

  4. This Lord Kala is beginningless, endless, free from old age or decay and immortal. He is the Supreme Ruler because of his omnipresence, independence and his state of being the soul of all.

  5. There have been many Brahmas, Rudras, Narayanas and others, but there is one Lord controller of all viz. Kala. He is omniscient. So states the Śruti (Vedas).

I admit that it is confusing as different gods are described at the end which we might have little to no knowledge of, hence I recommend you read this, please:

It is quite hard to understand, that is why I think Gurbani is special in a sense that it does not bother with other gods as much and only talks of Akal Purakh. Humans in Kaliyuga do not have enough intelligence to understand the deep rooted philosophies of the Vedas, resulting in worship of lower deities. However, gurbani goes straight to the point and stops us from wasting time learning about deep philosophies which go straight over our heads. Gurbani is the true essence and message which is deeply rooted in all the vedas, upanishad, simritis, shatras, etc. It is the divine knowledge; the eternal truth. One may read Vedas, etc. again and again but it is hard to grasp the knowledge for us low beings, hence guru ji gave us low lives gurbani which is powerful enough to liberate us when everything fails. The vedas, Puranas, Yajnas, Yoga, etc. is great to learn but cannot deliver from this deep ocean of sorrows in this age (Kaliyuga) but could in the previous ages, hence one must fully devote oneself to the Perfect God, through naam simran and Gurbani.
