“India’s dawn is in the offing. India will again get the credit for spreading the message of righteousness and sacred culture in the entire world.”
– MAHARSHI AUROBINDO
“A conjunctional period of a new era has commenced from 26 December 1924 A.D. i.e. Samvat 1981 Posh Vad Amaas, Friday.”

“A Messenger of God will arrive who will change the entire face of the world by inducing valour in all laymen.”
All scholars, astrologers and great seers of the world opine that the time has come for Era Transformation. Today, the world has been engulfed by unrighteousness, lack of peace, mismanagement, injustice and illegal practices. Thus people lose hope and say, “Where is God?”. The Almighty Lord will no longer allow His beautiful world to remain in a hell like condition. Since time immemorial, the Lord has again and again incarnated on earth, so as to overcome unrighteousness in the world. Hence why will He not incarnate again today under such trying times? All futurists of the world have said in one voice that the time for world / Era Transformation has arrived. The Creator (God) of neo creation has already manifested amidst us all and has commenced this gigantic task.
Many conservative scholars say that one era is equivalent to 4 lakh, 32 thousand years. Its one leg (one fourth part) is equivalent to 1 lakh, 8 thousand years. Thus according to these Pundits the current era is in the first leg of Kaliyuga (Dark Age). Hence they say that we will have to wait for 3 lakh, 24 thousand years more for a new era to set in. This deluded viewpoint has induced a downfall in world humanity from the mental standpoint. These Pundits’ deluded stand, forces innocent Indian devotees to think wrongly. These Pundits instill fear in the minds of those Indians who believe in hard work and enterprise and like intoxicating drugs, such innocent men are converted to intellectual slaves. Scriptural precepts always have special meanings based on time and circumstances. These precepts were given wrong interpretations by dry scholars (Pundits) and thus blind beliefs prevail in India. We must realize that the original scriptural injunctions are not wrong but that they were terribly misinterpreted by so called scholars. These scriptural injunctions must be studied deeply and interpreted appropriately.
The time span of any era (Satyuga, Dwaparayuga etc.) varies in tandem with the different movements of stars, planets etc. and its influence on earth. In the Vajas Samhita, a very clear cut demarcation has been made between a Human Era and Demi-God Era (12/111). An era has been defined even in the Taitariya Samhita. In the Rigveda’s astrological chapter, Prajapati’s Brahma’s era has been described as Samvatsar as follows –
“When Brihaspati (Jupiter) passes through 12 Zodiac Signs, one era is completed. One Zodiac Sign is equivalent to 1 year. Thus the era of 12 Zodiac Signs is equal to 12 years. Thus if an era is measured on the basis of the sun or moon’s movement, the calculation will vary a great deal. Modern scientists have discovered the fact that in 11 years the inner state of the sun changes. These 11 years correspond to 1 era of the sun.
The calculation of one era corresponding to 4 lakh, 32 thousand years has been wrongly made on the basis of the sun’s circumbalution of its universe which takes 2 crore years. These 2 crore years have been classified into 4 parts i.e. 4 eras and each era thus corresponds to 4 lakh, 32 thousand years. In order to keep pace with the prevalent era calculation, smaller eras are called Antardashas. Thus people get deluded while trying to study them.
