Joseph Selbie makes the complex and obscure simple and clear. A dedicated meditator for over forty years, he has taught yoga and meditation throughout the US and Europe. He has also been an avid follower of the unfolding new paradigm of science—with groaning bookshelves to show for it—and he is known for creating bridges of understanding between the modern evidenced-based discoveries of science and the ancient experience-based discoveries of the mystics.
The Yugas: Keys to Understanding Our Hidden Past, Emerging Present and Future Enlightenment.
A yuga, in Hinduism, is generally used to indicate an age of time. In the Rigveda, a yuga refers to generations, a long period, a very brief period, or a yoke. In the Mahabharata, the words yuga and kalpa are used interchangeably to describe the cycle of creation and destruction.
A Yuga Cycle ( a.k.a. chatur yuga, maha yuga, etc.) is a cyclic age (epoch) in Hindu cosmology. Each cycle lasts for 4,320,000 years (12,000 divine years) and repeats four yugas (world ages): Krita (Satya) Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dvapara Yuga, and Kali Yuga.
Today’s view of history cannot account for ancient anomalies, such as the Pyramids and advanced knowledge contained in India’s Vedas-but in 1894 an Indian sage gave us an explanation not only for our hidden past, but for the trends of today and for our future enlightenment-the 24,000 year Yuga cycle.
