"Kali Yuga is the Age of tribalism, yet it is the most exciting Age in which
to incarnate. It is the Age of Service, whereby to serve is to succeed."

Between black and white, there is a whole range of colors, between thunder and silence, the whole scale of tones, and between something and nothing, between a smashing fist on the face, and trying to touch air, there are all the textures of feeling; burning, throbbing, pushing, hugging, fondling, tickling, kissing, brushing, and light wind on the skin. Your world is all these elements of light and sound; of tastes, smell and touch, woven together in many dimensions on the fabulous loom of your brain. Your brain... the most complicated thing in the world, which You... Yourself... grew... without even thinking about it.

You have always been around. For You, I, the Eternal Self, is simply what there is... and all that there is. All of us are rays from One center, teats on One sow, sounds on One flute, forever and ever. But it doesn't get monotonous, boring, because we keep forgetting IT. We keep the on's on by putting off's between them.

How big is IT... and how long is on and how long off? Don't take these figures literally for their purpose is just to give an idea of vastness.

It is said that man, human life, is a dance that lasts for 4,320,000 years. And, of course, there are all sorts of other dances going on at the same time with their own rhythms. Star dances, rock dances, fish dances, insect dances, plant dances; and strange animal scenes, like crocodile dances, elephant dances... The human dance runs for 4,320,000 years, a span of time that's called a Kalpa. Before it begins and after it ends, there is always another Kalpa, or off period of rest during which You, the eternal Self, is simply the Self and doesn't pretend to be this me or that you. This is called the Pralaya, the rest period... peace, uninvolvement, pure bliss.

When 4,320,000 years of rest draw to a close, the Lila dance begins again; though it always seems like the first time. Every day is today. And then through many centuries, through many pulses of waking and sleeping, life and death, You, the eternal Self, stretch your world out through a span of time that varies in mood like the rainbow; running from purple to red, from royal delight to destruction and fire. For as there is no purple without red, there is no pleasure without pain.

There are thus four great divisions of the Kalpa. Each one is called a Yuga, and named after the four throws in the Hindu game of dice; Krita, the perfect throw of four; Treta, the slightly imperfect throw of three; Dvapara, the throw of two; and Kali, the worst throw of one.

And so the first period, the Krita Yuga... runs for 1,728,000 years, during which the whole world is as perfect as a fresh flower and as unblemished as the skin of a young girl.

The second period, the Treta Yuga... is a little shorter. It runs for 1,296,000 years, during which a small element of evil and decay comes into life and the tips of the petals are very slightly browned.

The third period is the Dvapara Yuga... running for 864,000 years. The syllable Dva in Dvapara means two, double or dual, so that in this age, the powers of good and evil are equally balanced.

Lord Shiva


Lord Shiva in fear-not mudra.

The fourth period is Kali Yuga... running for only 432,000 years in which the power of evil and destruction takes over. At the end, You, I, the Eternal Self, take the form of Shiva, the Lord of renewal through death; blue bodied with a necklace of skulls. BUT with one hand in the gesture called "fear not" as a reminder that all this is in illusion and play. And then Shiva dances the Tandala dance, the dance of fire in which the material world is destroyed and You, I, the Self, return to the state of Pralaya... of peace, uninvolvement, and pure bliss. -- Source.

A Kalpa or Day in the mind of God, the One, is made up of four Yugs (Cosmic Cycles and Circles, Epochs or Ages, much like the Seasons of the year) known as:

.) The Age of Wisdom - Krita Yuga (Spring)
.) The Age of Ritual - Treta Yuga (Summer)
.) The Age of Doubt - Dvapara Yuga (Fall)
.) The Age of Conflict - Kali Yuga (Winter)
See The Four Yugas or Epochs.


The latter Age, the Kali Yuga in which we now live, is ending and we are now in a transition period called the 'Twilight of the Kali Yuga'. In this Twilight of the Kali Yuga, God, the One, makes way for the end of tribalism, the next cycle, the New Age.

At the end of each cycle (kalpa) another cycle begins.

There are those who teach that human life occurs in a Kalpa or Cycle, a dance that lasts for 4,320,000 years. A Kalpa equals four Ages or Yugas: Krita, Treta, Dwapara, and Kali. The Krita Yuga lasts for 1,728,000 years (4800 divine years); the Treta Yuga lasts for 1,296,000 (3600 divine years); the Dwapara Yuga lasts for 864,000 (2400 divine years); and the Kali Yuga lasts for only 432,000 (1200 divine years) in which the power of evil and destruction takes over. (Note: Do not take these figures literally for their purpose is just to give an idea of vastness.)

At the end, another Krita Yuga begins. Krita or Satya Yuga (Golden Age) is the Age of Purity. It is sinless. Dharma, or The Path of Righteousness, is perfect during Krita Yuga. But during Treta Yuga (the Silver Age), Adharma or evil enters the world and the very fabric of time begins to decay. Then comes Dwapara Yuga (the Bronze Age) in which the dissolution continues. Finally, Kali Yuga, the fourth Age (the Iron Age), is almost entirely corrupt, where Maya dominates human existence and Dharma barely survives.

Each Kalpa or Cycle of Four Ages equals 12,000 divine years, i.e., 365 times 12,000 human years long. (Note: The objective of all spiritual paths is to see God, the One, even in the midst of Maya.) See More.

Points to Ponder

"The Age of Aquarius has so many differences from the religion you have
practiced for the last five thousand years. The past won't work;
philosophies, assurances, men, institutions will not deliver.
You will learn the science to deliver yourself to You first,
then come out and serve others." Yogi Bhajan

"Do not spend your spiritual energy on fear. We are at the turning point,
the end of Kali Yuga, so all insanity will prevail. Wisdom shall arise
from this insanity. Light shall arise from this darkness. Divinity will
arise from this chaos. Compassion shall arise from this madness."
Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Zen Buddhist
