Be it whatever, an Adverisement or a real NASA photo --- what worries me
here is an apparent lack of precision in reckoning the time of the yugas.
Why - if I may ask - should we be satisfied with the statement that "treta
yuga was supposed to have taken place more than 17,00,000 years ago"?
Now, since we live in, roughly, the beginning of 6th M of the kali yuga,
the treta should have started (let me calculate: 5 M for the kali + 864 M
for the dvapara = 869 M) , yes - cca 869 000 years ago. Or do I miss
Oh, yeah, they say that it WAS supposed -- do they mean it IS NOT suposed NOW?
and all the best for the New Year 2003
