List of Popular Topics

The Yugas: The 24,000 Year Cycle of the Rise and Fall of Man

Sri Yukteswar, guru of Paramhansa Yogananda, presented a fascinating explanation of the rising and falling eras that our planet cycles through every 24,000 years – the cycle of the yugas. According to Sri Yukteswar, we have recently passed through the low point of the cycle and are now entering a higher age – an Energy Age that is even now revolutionizing the world. These higher ages also occurred in the past, explaining such anomalies as advanced knowledge of physics and math found in the ancient Indian Vedas, the precision construction of the Great Pyramid, and much more.

Dwapara Yuga: The Energy Age

We live in an era of all-encompassing change. Our use of energy has transformed the way we live – to our benefit and our peril. Since 1900 knowledge has expanded in all directions bringing into question nearly everything we thought we knew about the physical world and human life. Nor are the changes only outward. We ourselves are changing. We have become more aware of our inner energy – our life force — which is profoundly changing the way we live our lives.

The Great Pyramid: At the Crossroad of Treta and Dwapara Yuga

The Great Pyramid’s time of construction was around 3000 BC; near the cusp of descending Treta Yuga and descending Dwapara Yuga. Approximately 5000 years old, it remains one of the world’s great enigmas. Mainstream archeology maintains that it was built by a civilization barely out of the Stone Age, yet it remains to this day one of the most precisely built structures on earth, and it reveals knowledge of mathematics and building methods that, according to archeology, weren’t discovered until thousands of years later. Either this was a colossal case of beginners luck or there is more to the Great Pyramid than mainstream archeologists maintain: built with higher knowledge inherited from Treta Yuga at the dawn of Dwapara Yuga.

India’s Ancient Vedas and the Mental Age

Advanced scientific and mathematical knowledge is embedded in the ancient Vedas of India: the structure and behavior of the atom, a sun-centered solar system, the gaseous nature of the sun, and algebraic and geometric concepts and formulae, are just a few examples. Astronomical evidence contained within the Vedas themselves date the origins of the Vedas to as early as nine thousand years ago, over 8000 years before this knowledge is popularly believed have been discovered.

The Yugas and the Soul’s Journey

The ascending arc of the yugas, from the material awareness of Kali Yuga to the spiritual awareness of Satya Yuga parallels our soul’s own journey to Self-realization. Understanding the arc of development presented by the yugas can help us understand our own spiritual destiny. As we grow in realization, we progress through different motivations, levels of awareness, abilities and challenges.

The Yugas In-Depth

Sri Yukteswar, guru of Paramhansa Yogananda, presented a fascinating explanation of the rising and falling eras that our planet cycles through every 24,000 years – the cycle of the yugas. The breadth and sweep of the yugas encompasses all of history and the ancient past, providing a clear explanation for many anomalies such as the Great Pyramid, India’s Vedas and the 10,000 year old spiritual site of Gobekli Tepe. The yugas provide insight into our current Energy Age of rapid change and new found abilities that is re-shaping our world as well giving us a glimpse of our enlightened future and our spiritual potential.
