Approximately 543 more to go before we all are absorbed back into the Brahma Okay so 456.7 in terms of years is 456.7 x 4,320,000 = 1,972,944,456 which is about 2 billion years.Somewhat close to what evolution proposes for life on earth.Each day of brahma is called a Kalpa, and this itself is very huge a number.No wonder, ancient Indians had to be perfect in mathematics before going into all these things. But then Brahma is resting in the night, so lets get back to the day again. The 4 yugas are Satya Yuga (also called Krita Yuga), Treta Yuga, Dwapara Yuga, Kali Yuga.Vishnu represents the eternity that lies beyond our universe which has no birth or death and that which is eternal! Vedas say that thousands of brahmas have passed away!In other words, this is not the first time universe has been created. Brahma lives for hundred years say vedas and we are in the first day of the 51st year of the brahma. And we are in the first day of the 51st year of our current brahma.
Well, thats something I have to do some research into later, the more things to think about, the more happy and occupied I am Coming back to a day of the Brahma. Vedas say that during the day Brahma is busy in creation of life and during the night all life he created is absorbed back into him!
Vedas say that before the creation of the universe Lord Vishnu is sleeping in the ocean of all causes.
His bed is a giant serpent with thousands of cobra like hoods. Brahma represents the universe which we all live in, and it is this Brahma who creates life forms. Vishnu is the personification of the eternal multiverse that exists forever without any beginning or end.
Modern day science has been able to predict age of our universe to be only about 15-20 billion years!
Moreover Since we are in the first day of 51st year of Brahma, almost equal amout of time has to pass before this universe ends!!
Now this universe represented by Brahma is not a permanent universe, it is temporary, Brahma lives for 100 years say the vedas and then dies and then a new universe (Brahma) is born. Later we shall see how long each year of Brahma is.
