Correcting the Ongoing Misperceptions of the Kali Yuga

 
'Kaliyuga is only the key. In effect it does not exist, or, as was stated in the ['The Mysterious Yugas']: "We are always in a Kaliyuga.

 . . . In truth mankind is in the 'dark' simply by not realizing that there is no such thing as a Kaliyuga, and that in effect the Age of Darkness is only determined by an ignorance of Truth, which can come about in any age." 

'The Sphinx was built precisely at the time the precession [of the equinoxes] was passing over or within the vicinity of 0° Leo, carrying humanity into the Satyayuga
some 10,800 years ago.'

- Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet, The Gnostic Circle [bold emphasis added]


After reading 'Our Ancient Origins: The Cycles of Time & The Kali Yuga' by V. Susan Ferguson as published on a website entitled Ancient Origins - Reconstructing the Story of Humanity's Past, I thought perhaps it is once again to revisit the work of Vedic Cosmologist Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet on this subject, in efforts to correct the ongoing misconstructions of the story of humanity's past. I whipped up the above image on Inkscape to help give people a visual of the Yugas as seen in conjunction with the Precessional Cycle and the Astrological Ages.

"The figures of the Yugas (Ages)," Ms. Norelli-Bachelet writes her book The Gnostic Circle, 'are not in actual fact years, as is commonly believed, but rather to seconds of degrees of celestial longitude.' She notes that the 432,000 measure of the yugas, when understood in terms of the 360° circle is equivalent to 120°. Applied to the Great Year or the 25,920 year Precession of the Equinoxes, this measure is equivalent to 1/3rd of the 12-age Precession of the Equinoxes (= 8,640 years or 4 Astrological Ages).

In the image above it can be seen that the Kaliyuga is the INTEGER, or the ONE of the circle of 9.

1 Kali Yuga = 1/3 Precessional Year
3 Kali Yuga = 1 Precessional Year
9 x Kali Yuga = 3 Precessional Year 

Those truly interested in SEEING the truth of the Yugas, and thus the story of not only humanity's past but also its present and future must take into consideration the Vedic Laws of Equivalence wherein the evolutionary laws of the Vedic Year equally applies to the 12 months of the Earth's year and the 12 age Great Year (Precessional Year), and wherein all cycles are known to be self-similar. Understanding that the Vedic Year is a description of the Earth's journey around the SUN, it then makes perfect sense that the measure of this SUN as passed down to us from the Vedic age, is 432,000 miles. Thus the Kali Yuga is equivalent to the SUN and thus one Great Year (Precessional Year) consists of 3 SUNS and the Maha Yuga cycle [shown above] consists of 9 SUNS.

Sri Aurobindo - 'Nothingness is a creation of our mind'


'Nothing can arise from Nothing. Asat, nothingness, is a creation of our mind; where it cannot see or conceive, where its object is something beyond its grasp, too much beyond to give even the sense of a vague intangibility, then it cries out, "Here there is nothing." Out of its own incapacity it has created the conception of a zero. But what in truth is this zero? It is an incalculable Infinite... Our sense by its incapacity has invented darkness. In truth there is nothing but Light, only it is a power of light either above or below our poor human vision's limited range.'
