Why Does Dwapara Yuga Express in Some Countries, In Others Not?

jayadev

Question from Siddharth Kumar: North American and European countries have transitioned rapidly into Dwapara Yuga (the new age of energy). India, China and other Asian countries are struggling to break free from Kali Yuga (dark age) mentality. Africa and the Middle East are still in the dark ages, and they don’t have a desire to move forward into the new era. If the Yugas…

What does Time-Annihilation In Treta Yuga Mean?

jayadev

Question from Anonymous: I read in Autobiography of a yogi that Dwapara Yuga is an age of space-annihilators and Treta is age of time-annihilators. I understand space-annihilators, as there is no space between matter (quantum entanglement says so). But I do not understand time-annihilators. Please explain this to me.

The Yugas

puru

Question from Bahniman Kakati: I have read in books that there are four yugas; Kali, Dwapara, Treta & Satya. Also, that Kali yuga started just after Krishna left his body which lasted for 6000 years ascending and 6000 years descending before Dwapara ascending since 1900. 1. How long will Dwapara & Treta ascend and descend before ascending to Satya? 2. Is Satya yuga the…

Satya Yuga — the Golden Age

puru

Question from Niraj Sharma: I know it for a fact that suffering is a result of a result of man’s transgressions of God’s laws. I also know that Paramhansa Yogananda was God realized and did not like people to be troubled by pain and suffering. My question will human civilization reach a stage where there will be no suffering or suffering almost negligible?

The Inherent Duality of Material Creation

puru

Question from Wilma Jeuring: In studying the Yugas I understand that there is an upward tendency that takes many eons, but also a downward tendency. How is it possible that when we are at the utmost enlightened period, with high vibrations, there comes the downward movement again? Why can’t these high vibrations prevent the downward movement? Is it because it is part of our…

Can We Rise Above the Yuga in Which We Live?

puru

Question from Joann_mcdemott@yahoo.com: Regarding the yugas, is it not a personal and consequently a cultural choice as to what era one is living in? Karmically as well as physically and spiritually? Should not we all make a grander assumption for ourselves and just live in our own present time — not project antiquated notions on our societies and other persons? There are so many illumined…

Truth in the Ramayana?

puru

Question from Kailash: Just a question that I wanted to ask out of curiosity — Are the tales in Ramayan true or mostly symbolic? My brother refuses to believe in the epic, for which I replied that most of the stories might have been symbolic ones created by saints in the past to explain Man’s battle with evil. But he needed an answer,…

Alien Invasions in Ancient Times

ashaask

Question from Davy: Davy asked a long question which we have summarized here: The question stems from statements made by Master in Conversations with Yogananda. In #36, Master confirms the truth of UFO sightings, and says someday we’ll travel to other planets as easily as we go now from continent to continent. In #44, Master responds to the desire of some disciples to…

Are We in Kali or Dwapara Yuga?

puru

Question from John C: Namaste. I trust that we’re now about 311 years into an ascending Dwapara Yuga. But I’ve heard many other spiritual teachers or those that’re regarded as Masters/Gurus/Avatars by their followers, say that we are in a Kali Yuga. I believe in one version of Autobiography of a Yogi, it indicated that though we’re in Dwapara of the 24000 cycle, we…

Prehistoric Yugas

byasa

Question from A: Swami Sri Yukteshwar mentions in his book that all the yugas occur within a 24000 yr period and that we are currently in the dwapara yuga. Based on this theory it believed that perhaps the human civilization has already seen several such complete 24000yr yugas and we refer to them as ‘ Days of Brahman’ . I was wondering as…

Human evolution

gyandev

Question from Brock: Just to be sure, Yogananda says that human beings are a special creation of god, and not linked with apes. So essentially human beings are a one time creation of God (they magically and radomly appeared). This means that one must place oneself in direct conflict mainstream biological evidence concerning human origins to be a disciple of Yogananda. In other…

The Cosmic Drama

gyandev

Question from KJ: Does God want this drama to continue? Or does he want all of us to get back to him? If God wants us to perform drama and if all of us get back to him using self realization then will it not be against his will..? If this drama ( this cycle of Yugas ends) then will there be a…

Ignorance in Dwapara Yuga (present age)

gyandev

Question from Vinay: Greetings… I just wanted to ask the role of ignorance in this Dwapara Yuga. We’ve all read of what evolutionary changes come in the yugas, but what about the behavior of ignorance. I’ve already had good share of ignorance being in the form of “Scientific truths” and “laws of this and that”. Are these the version of ignorance in this…

Is this a time of crisis?

pranaba

Question from Ganesh: Jai Guru, On one of the talks I heard Swamiji say this this planet is in a crisis and a downturn and because of global warming it may stop spinning. Swamiji and other people state that this is an age of energy which Yukteshwar named Dwapara Yuga. That means this planet is ascending towards higher awareness. Will these kind of…

Global warming and the tides of time

Question from Will: Do the changing Yugas have anything to do with Global Warming and Climate Change. I saw a program that stated the fossil record shows that many animals not normally found in or near the Arctic Circle were found to have lived close to it many thousand of years ago. Is there a written record showing what events took place during…

Cycles of time (Yugas) and evolution of consciousness

gyandev

Question from Vinay Kumar: Hello dear friend, i have read from Swamiji that the transition of yugas happens because of sun’s motion around the centre of galaxy. Could you elaborate as to how and why this motion affects human evolution… as is said that nature’s workings are unveiled more and more in higher yugas, how exactly and why this happens? what about other planets..…
