The Calendar of Samsaara

Here is high level view of Vedic calendar –

  • 30 days = 1 month
  • 12 months = 1 year
  • 4.32 million years = 1 Maha Yuga, which has four divisions –
    • Krita Yuga = 1,728,000 years
    • Treta Yuga = 1,296,000 years
    • Dwapara Yuga = 864,000 years
    • Kali Yuga = 432,000 years
  • 71 Maha Yuga = 1 Manvantara
  • 14 Manvantaras + 15 Krita Yuga durations = 1 Kalpa
  • 720 Kalpa = 1 Brahma Year

We are currently at 5121st year of Kali Yuga, of the 28th MahaYuga, of the 7th Manvantara, of the 1st Kalpa, of the 51st Brahma-Year of our Brahma (our universe).

That’s 155,521,972,949,120 years, as per the standard Vedic Calendar.
