Calculating Brahma Kalpa

Brahma Kalpa and Vedic Yuga Chakra

Brahma Kalpa or Kalpa, means the duration of Pitamah Brahma Ji’s day time (or 12 hours of day-time at the Maker’s abode) … Brahma Ratri or Brahma Ratra means 12 hours of night time of the abode of creator (or Brahmaloka) … Each of these has a time span as calculated here …

But because we are calculating this time span in reference to this world where we reside tight now, so the time-duration can only be in reference to the human solar years of this world system …

Since all Vedic sages right from Manu Maharaaj (i.e. Father of humanity or progenitor of humanity) have always utilized the middle time units of precession in all their calculations of time and because this term (of Brahma Kalpa) is a Vedic term, so its time units can only be of the middle of precession cycle (because Vedic systems are utilizing this middle time unit of precession only) …

 

59-AA … Brahma Kalpa and Brahmaloka …

But to calculate the time spans at abode of creator (Brahmaloka) one must know how that abode is and what its parts are … So here it goes …

  • Brahmaloka is made up of 20 worlds …
  • Of these 16 are lower smaller white worlds and 4 are upper great white worlds …
  • The 16 lower white worlds are placed such that there are 8 sets of these worlds … The subtler travelling vehicle which passes through these 8 sets of worlds whilst approaching the 4 upper great white worlds of Brahmaloka … Each of these worlds have a shining white base from which different colored lights are emanating out at right angles to these each of these worlds whilst the subtler vehicle passes through Avyakta (i.e. Avyakta Prakriti, which in some Sanskrit texts is also called as Avyakta Prana) which separated each of these 16 lower white worlds …
  • After passing through these 16 lower white worlds, the subtler vehicle enters into the 4 upper great white worlds which are pure shining white (i.e. diamond white) in color … Three of these shining diamond white worlds are on one side and one is on the other side of travelling subtler vehicle … In this 4th world is residing the Pujya Gurudeva of my previous transmigrated incarnation (i.e. incarnation which is arrived through transmigration of soul, which in Sanskrit language is also called as Parkaya Pravesh) …
  • These worlds were already discussed through a painted sketch in an earlier topic of “Sadyojata face of Sadashiva” (section LL-5-E) …
  • A description of these 16 lower white and 4 upper great white worlds of Brahmaloka has already been provided within earlier topic of “As IT progressed” (Section CC) … And this description is also discussed within the earlier topic of “Ahum to ALA … Continues”, in addition to being discussed within the earlier topic of “World of light pink body … Avyakta” (Section KK-11), and is also discussed within another earlier topic of “8th plexus … Across religious lore’s” (Section KK-4-C) and these descriptions were just as they were self realized when the subtler travelling vehicle of this little student had entered into them and transited through them … The same would also be how these worlds would be self realized by any aspirant who would self realize (after entering) into the same abode of Maker (i.e. Brahmaloka) …
  • Each of these 20 worlds denote one intermediary state of emptiness and thus there also are 20 intermediary states of emptiness … Thus when the aspirants subtler travelling vehicle transits through these 20 worlds, then it also denotes the accomplishment of the 20th intermediary level of emptiness (or in other worlds, it denotes the accomplishment of 20 intermediary states of emptiness) …
  • And only after this accomplishment is the 21st state of emptiness self realized … This 21st is the Mahashunya (Which in English language can also be termed as the Great emptiness) … But since in Vedic lore, there cannot ever be more than one Maha (i.e. Great), so what is told as Maha (or great) in Vedas, itself is the supreme (Param) and due to this reason, Mahashunya (or Great Emptiness) is none other than Param Shunya (Supreme emptiness or supreme aspect of emptiness) …

The abode of Maker (Brahma Loka) is present at the uppermost rungs of macrocosmic hierarchy … This is because Brahmaloka itself is the abode of creator of allness … This creator who is addressed as grandfather of allness (i.e. Pitamah Brahma Ji) is a very brightly shining, diamond white being who has four heads and he is only self realized after successfully transiting through the 20 worlds of “Brahmaloka (i.e. pristine abode of creator)” as we have briefly discussed above … Thus it is due to this reason that the Vedas say that Brahma is having four heads (i.e. Pitamah Brahma Ji is Chatur Mukha) …

Brahmaloka is of a diamond white color … Diamond white color also denotes a state perfect macro-neutrality towards all that is ever originated within the Maker-Makings … By macro-neutral I mean, that state which is based upon an inner neutrality towards allness and her each part … This term also means macro-equanimity towards allness and her each part, i.e. that which is based upon and is rested within Sarva Samta (which can also be named as the state of macro-neutrality or Sarva Samta) …

And a “very-light pink colored nature” is separating all these worlds from each other … Within the Vedic knowledge systems it is this “very light pink  nature” which is addressed as the “neither manifest nor non-manifest nature” or Avyakta Prakriti (or simply the Avyakta) and the same Avyakta is also addressed as Maya Shakti of the “grandfather and creator of allness (i.e. Pitamah Brahma Ji)” …

Brahmaloka (or abode of Maker) is an attributed (which means as Sagun) and formless (which means as Nirakaar) macro-neutral (or macro-equanimous or that which is based upon Sarva Samta) world of very vast expanses …

If we were to describe the Brahmaloka in a single statement, then it can be told as “macro-neutral attributed-formless abode of Maker (or Sarva-Sum Sagun Nirakaar Brahmaloka)” …

This discussion could not be avoided as it refers to the topic at hand i.e. to calculate the duration of one Brahma Kalpa (or 12 hours of day-time of Brahma) which itself is related to the time span at Brahmaloka …

 

59-BB … Esoteric path of sun through the mathematical symbol of Infinity …

As was discussed earlier, the sun of this planetary system is a self manifested microcosmic state of the “golden womb of macrocosmic creation (who itself is the one addressed as Hiranyagarbha Brahma” and thus within the Vedic lore the sun of this planetary system is also addressed as “Hiranya Garbhatmak Surya” which means, Hiranyagarbha Brahma as the Sun of this planetary system …

Esoterically and subtly speaking the movement of sun in its path is also across each of these 10 pairs of worlds of Brahmaloka … Thus from a subtler esoteric point of view, the “divinities of sun” are actually moving within the mathematical symbol of infinity, even when the sun is moving in its path around the central non lighted core of the Milky Way Galaxy …

Thus, the subtle movement of solar divinities are also around these 20 worlds of Brahmaloka and whilst the sun esoterically moves through each of these worlds of Brahmaloka (and paying homage to these 20 worlds, their divinities and their divine controllers) …

So eventually there are 20 solar revolutions which make a subtle esoteric transit of the sun through the divinities of all of the 20 worlds which make the Brahmaloka …

Since the revolution of sun is in an almost circular path around the non lighted central core of the Milky Way Galaxy and also since the sun also esoterically moves in the symbol of infinity (whilst it pays homage to the divinities of each of the 20 worlds which make Brahmaloka) so in reality “one solar revolution is also equal to half full-cycle of sun around these divinities of Brahmaloka” … We have already discussed this in the previous topic of “Calculating solar revolution” …

And basis above paragraph, we can also say that time span of this esoteric path of sun is twice that of the solar revolution …

In the earlier topic of “Calculating solar revolution”, we had discussed that the time of one solar revolution (at middle time units) is of 216 million human solar years …

So the esoteric path of sun through the mathematical symbol of infinity would only be as follows (as per middle time units of precession which have always been used in all Vedic calculations) …

216 million human solar years x 2 = 432 million human solar years

 

59-CC … Calculation of Brahma Kalpa …

With above as a base, we shall continue our discussions on the Brahma Kalpa (or one day time of Brahma or 12 hours at world of Brahma) …

To complete this time of one day or 12 hours of day-time at the abode of the creator, the sun has to allegorically move through each of these 20 worlds which make Brahmaloka (i.e. abode of the creator) …

This means there needs to be 20 complete revolutions of the sun around the galactic center and this time span itself is 10 complete cycles of sun within its path that is esoterically denoted by the symbol of infinity …

At unitary values of time for middle of precession (as were utilized by Vedic sages in all their calculations) one complete revolution of sun around the galactic center (i.e. half of travel within the symbol of infinity) is of a time span of 216 million human solar years …

Thus one single “day time or 12 hours at Brahmaloka” which is stated as Brahma Kalpa in Vedic lore, is of a duration as follows …

 

20 x 216 million = 4,320 million human solar years = 4.32 billion human solar years

 

Note: Above is the exact time span of a Brahma Kalpa as is told in Vedic lore …

Note: As told earlier, above time span is calculated at the middle time units of precession (as these middle units were the ones which have always been utilized in all calculations which were done by Vedic sages) …

Note: Factor 20 is used here because of the 20 worlds which make the “pristine abode of the Maker of allness (i.e. Brahmaloka)” and whilst the sun esoterically pays homage to each of the divinities of these 20 worlds …

 

59-DD … Calculation of Brahma Ratri …

One complete day at Brahmaloka (abode of Brahma) is of “12 Brahma-hours” and his night is also of the same duration …

Thus 24 hours at Brahmaloka are composed of 12 Brahma-hours of day-time and 12 Brahma-hours of night time …

Brahma’s day-time is told as Brahma Kalpa and his night time is as Brahma Ratri …

 

Proceeding further …

Thus basis above, Brahma Ratri (or Brahma Ratra) is also of the same duration as Brahma Kalpa i.e. 4,320 million human solar years = 4.32 billion human solar years (as per middle time units of precession) …

 

59-EE …  Brahma Kalpa and Brahma Ratri at other points of precession …

But prior we proceed any further, below is to be taken into account which describes the relation of Surya Loka (i.e. Sun world) to other higher divine worlds like those of Brahmaloka (which means as the divine world of Pitamah Brahma Ji), Vaikunth (which in some Vedic scriptures is also addressed as Vishnuloka or divine world of Sri Vishnu) and the same divine world is also the one that is addressed as Shivaloka (i.e. divine world of Bhagwan Shiva) …

As per experience, “the abode of Maker (i.e. Brahmaloka)” that is briefly described earlier is directly entered into from the “sun world (Surya Loka)” … When the subtler vehicle travels to Brahmaloka (abode of Brahma) through the Surya-Loka (abode of Sun deity), then in this path, only the non-manifest non-present nature (i.e. Avyakta) lies in between these two states … Thus the “cycles of sun are directly related to Brahmaloka) and it was also due to this reason that Sun has been addressed as Hiranya Garbhatmak Brahma or in other words, sun itself is a self manifested state of the “golden womb of macrocosmic creation (or in other words, Hiranyagarbha Brahma) …

So most of the aspects which relate to Brahmaloka (i.e. pristine abode of the creator and grandfather of allness or Brahmaloka) can be derived from solar cycles … And it is also due to this reason that at most places in this text, these two (i.e. solar cycles and Brahma) would be discussed together or in tandem (one after the other) …

Plus as per the ancient knowledge of Vedas, “that which leads to anything, is an intrinsic part of that thing only” … So if a path is leading to any subtle world, then that path is also of that subtle world only … Thus if a path leads to a divine world (Deva Loka), that that path is also a part and parcel of that Deva world only …

Thus because the sun world (which in Sanskrit language is called as Surya Loka) is directly leading to the “abode of the Maker (Brahmaloka)” and then to the abode of the Preserver (Vishnuloka) and then this itself is the one which leads to the abode of rejuvenator (Shivaloka), so within Vedic knowledge systems, sun is also termed as the creator (i.e. Pitamah Brahma Ji) and the same sun is also addressed as the preserver (i.e. the great-grandfather or Parpitamah who is addressed as Sri Bhagwan Vishnu) and is also addressed as the rejuvenator (i.e. Adinath or the primordial or Supreme being, who is addressed as Bhagwan Shiva) … Due to this reason, within the Surya-Purana, the Sun is also considered as a manifest form of the trinity (i.e. creator, preserver and destroyer) …

This knowledge of Sun as was given by Vedic sages was borrowed by many cultures of the east and west and thus we still have sun worshippers in these lands … These Sun worshippers were addressed as Saurya’s in Vedic lore … These Saurya’s (worshipper of sun or light) are present in almost every culture and they all relate to the Vedas …

We had discussed the Brahmaloka as having 20 worlds in it … Thus the Vedic Sages had calculated 10 full-cycles of sun within its symbolic path of infinity (or in other words 20 half cycles of sun around the Vishnu Nabhi or the non-lighted center of the galaxy) to be equal to the time span of one day of Brahma (or Brahma Kalpa) … This also proves the relationship of sun of this solar system to the creator (Brahma) itself …

 

59-EE-1 …Calculating Brahma Kalpa and Brahma Ratri at Nadir of precession …

This can be calculated as follows …

{(Time at middle of precession / unitary value at middle of precession) x unitary value at Nadir of precession}

 

So basis above …

{(4320 million / 66.6666667) x 72) = 4665.6 million human solar years

Or in other words … 4.6656 billion human solar years

 

Note: The figure 4320 is directly taken from earlier calculation of section 59-CC

Note: Values of 66.6666667 and 72 as have been used above are directly taken from the earlier topic of “Unitary values of time” …

 

59-EE-2 … Calculating Brahma Kalpa and Brahma Ratri at Zenith of precession …

{(Time at middle of precession / unitary value at middle of precession) x unitary value at Nadir of precession}

 

So basis above …

{(4320 million / 66.6666667) x 61.3333333) = 3974.4 million human solar years

Or in other words … 3.9744 billion human solar years

 

Note: The figure 4320 is directly taken from earlier calculation of section 59-CC

Note: Values of 66.6666667 and 61.3333333 as have been used above are directly taken from the earlier topic of “Unitary values of time” …

 

59-EE-3 … Brahma Kalpa and Brahma Ratri at current stage of precession …

{(Time at Nadir of precession / unitary value at Nadir of precession) x unitary value at current stage of precession}

 

So basis above …

{(4665.6 million / 72.0) x 71.6) = 4639.68 million human solar years

Or in other words … 4.63968 billion human solar years

 

Note: Above values of 72.0 and 71.6 are directly taken from the earlier topic of “Unitary values of time” …

Note: The figure 4665.6 is taken from earlier calculation of section 59-EE-1

 

59-FF … Calculating Brahma Kalpa basis other methods …

Vedic sages had based all their calculations within the middle time units of precession … So in this calculation we shall also have to use these middle time units only …

 

59-FF-1 … Time span of one Brahma Kalpa … 1st method …

The method of this discussion relates to the above figure …

As per Vedas, in one Brahma Kalpa there are 14 Manvantar and each Manvantar has a time span of 306,720,000 human solar years …

In between each of these 14 Manvantar and then at the end of this group of 14 Manvantar (i.e. at the end end of each Brahma Kalpa) there is a Sandhikaal (which in English language means as the intermediary time of change from one Manvantar to another and one Brahma Kalpa to another) … Thus there are 15 Sandhikaal in total and each Sandhikaal has a time span of one Deva Satyuga i.e. 1.728 million human solar years …

And each Manvantar has 71 Mahayuga (which in Sanskrit lore’s is also termed as a Deva Yuga and the same in English language, means as a divine age or a divine age cycle) and where each divine age cycle (which is also called as a Mahayuga or Deva Yuga Chakra) is of a time span of 4.32 million human solar years (as per middle time units of precession) …

 

So basis above, we shall not calculate the time span of one Brahma Kalpa …

{(71 Mahayuga) X 14 (Manvantar)} + (15 Sandhikaal) = 1 Brahma Kalpa

 

So above calculations leads us to below value …

(71 x 4,320,000) x (14) + (15 x 1,728,000) = 4,320,000,000 human solar years = 4.32 billion human solar years

This value is the same as what was derived earlier on in this topic …

 

59-FF-2 … Time span of one Brahma Kalpa … 2nd method …

As per Vedic lore, 1000 Mahayuga (Deva Chatur Yuga or four divine ages which make a divine age cycle) is one Brahma Kalpa … So basis this …

1000 Mahayuga = 1 Brahma Kalpa

 

Thus the value of one Brahma Kalpa becomes as follows …

1000 x 4,320,000 = 4,320,000,000 human solar years = 4.32 billion human solar years

This value is same as what was derived earlier on in this topic …

Note: Above stated methods are not the only ones through which time span of a Brahma Kalpa can be derived …

 

Continues …
