Mahasankalpa and Modern Science

The space, time and observer are three important parameters in the modern physics of the 20th and 21st century.These three are also important for any Indian ritual or custom, for many millenia.

 In the Maha sankalpa we always chant lines connected with these three parameters. First we explain where we are doing this ritual (space), then we chant the mantra connected with when we are doing this (time), and the last who is performing this ritual (perceiver/observer) and what is the ritual ( the observed).

The explanation starts from the Universe -> to this galaxy -> to this solar system -> to earth -> to Asia (jambu dweepa) -> to Bharata varsha -> to southern part of Godavari -> to Parasurama kshetra and -> to Ananthapura desa (if you are in Trivandrum) -> to the temple or house (sannidhi) where you are doing the ritual. ( thus space is made clear)

The time we specify is from Kalpa -> to Manwanthara -> to Mahayuga -> yuga – > varsha/ year -> ayana – > maasa/ month -> paksha -> thithi – samaya/time. This is mentioned here as the 7th Manwanthara, 28th Mahayuga in which the 4th yuga which is the Kaliyuga, and Angirasa samvatsa, which is the 5108th year of this kaliyuga, dakshinayana, maasa, paksha, thithi, then to the time of doing the ritua.(Thus the time is specified).

In this explanation we can see very interesting scientific content. One kalpa is 14 Manwantharas which is equal to one day of Lord Brahma. Starting from 7th Manwantara, 28th Mahayuga in which the 4th yuga which is kaliyuga, the year, the month, the day and the time. Shall we calculate these period ?

Onfiltered= 72 Mahayuga and a Mahayuga = 43,20,000 years.

The present Manwanthara is 7th one known as Vaivaswatha Manwanthara that means 6 Manwantharas are over which equals to 6 x 72 x 43,20,000 years ! (=A)

In the 7th Manwanthrara, this is the 28th Mahayuga which means 27 Mahayugas are over . So the number of years elapsed after the commencing of this Manwanthara = 27 x 43,20,000 years.! (=B)

This is the 28th Mahayuga in which Krutha, Thretha and Dwapara yuga are over. According to which the number of years elapsed in this Mahayuga ( according to one system of counting) = 43,20,000 x ¾ ! (=C)

The present yuga is kaliyuga and the year is 5108. So the elapsed years is 5107 ! (=D).

So the total number of years after the beginning of ‘the day’ (one day of Brahma is equal one kalpa) of this Kalpa = ABC + D

Total years after the beginning of the Brahma’s day =6 x 72 x 43,20,000 + 27 x 43,20,000 + 43,20,000 x ¾ + 5107 years .

 This is the ‘time’ elapsed which is the time used in our Mahasankalpa.

(There is another, but little different calculation for the years elapsed after the beginning of the 28th Mahayuga. Because as mentioned earlier three yugas (krutha- thretha- dwapara yuga) are over before the beginning of the kaliyuga. According to another sysem of calculation the krutha yuga = 4,32,000 x4 years; thretha yuga = 4,32,000 x 3 years ; dwaparayuga = 4,32,000 x 2 years + If all these four put together is E. Then the number of years elapsed after the beginning of this kalpa ( according to the second system of calculation) = 6 x 72 x 43,20,000 + 27 x 43,20,000 + ( (4,32,000 x 4) + (4,32,000 x 3) + (4,32,000 x 2) ) + 5107 years i.e A + B + C + E + 5107 years.

This will come approximately 199 crore years ( ~2000 million years). It has been proved that this is the archezoic era, during when the life began on the surface of the globe earth as micro organisms like amoeba, bacteria, etc. RIGHT !

Our Mahasankalpa has the same points as the modern science ! That is the scientific India ! Here the ultra modern science integrated with ultra ancient spirituality through the ritual based mahasankalpa
