How long is one day of Brahma in our time? (BG – 8.17)
A KALPA is a day of Brahma, which consists of a thousand cycles of four yugas, or Ages – Satya-yuga,Treta-yuga, Dvapara-yuga, Kali-yuga.
Satya-yuga – Characterized of virtue, wisdom, religion, and practically no ignorance, last’s 1,728,000 years
Treta-yuga – introduction of prostitution and ignorance, last’s 1,296,000 years
Dvapara-yuga – greater decline in virtue and religion, increasing prostitution and ignorance, lasting864,000 years
Kali-yuga – in which we have already in for the last 500 years, lasting a total of 432,000 years.
In this age of Kali-yuga we will come to a point of termination and the Supreme Lord Himself will appear as the Kalki Avatara, vanquishing the demons, saving His devotees, and commencing another Satya-Yuga.
So, One day of Brahma is :
1,728,000 +1,296,000 + 864,000 + 432,000 x 1000 (day) x 2 (to account for night) = 8,640,000,000 years is equal to one day of Brahma – Kalpa.
Life of Brahma is equal to 8,640,000,000 (ONE DAY) x 365 (DAYS IN YEAR) = 315,360,000,000,000 years X 100 = 315 Trillion, 360 billion earth years which from the view point of eternity it is a brief lightning flash.
Therefore if 8,640,000,000 = to one day which = 86,400 seconds which includes day and night.
So, 3 seconds of Brahma is = to 31,536,000sec of Earth.
60 (to get minutes) = 525,600 min
60 ( to get hours) = 8760 hours
24 (to get days) = 365 days
365 (to get years) =1year Walla!
So, we know that Brahma stole the cowherd boys from Krishna for 3 sec, which on earth was equal to 1 year, and this proves the time frame, WOW! FANTASTIC.
