Namaste Sarabhanga (et.al),

I thought to let a few days go by and re-address this conversation... fresh eyes on this matter is always a good thing.

Note -I am not addressing this from a debate standpoint, as I have no desire to prove any points. Only pass on a few ideas for ones consideration.

In the end, the sun will still rise tomorrow in the east, God willing, and Surya will give little matter on whether one's opinions are accepted or not. So here's a few idea's from my parampara regarding this number 1200.This is a discussion of the 1200's audit trail and its significance.I still find myself baffled by Swami Yukteshvar's identification of the present yuga, but respect his approach.

Units of Time

In Jyotish oriented Bha Chakra ( the zodiac) we look to a cycle of time that increases (aaroha) and decreases (avaroha). Jyotisha's see this owned by Jupiter and many know of this Jupiter cycle ( 5 X 12 = 60 years). This waxing and waning is owned by the two largest outer planets, Jupiter ( Guru) and Saturn ( Sani). This aaroha + avaroha = 60+60= 120 years. In Kali Yuga this 120 years is considered param ayus or the maximum life span of a human during this period. This is called Vimshottari, or 120 years, as given by Parashara and equates to the Vimshottari Dasa system many jyotisha follow and apply.

So this term Kali one knows this to be the dark one, yet this 'kal' is a digit, to count and in Jyotish is seen as the digit 1. So , in kali the ayus = 120 years. In other ages ( Yuga) it is multiples of this ( Just like sat yuga is 4X the time of Kali yuga), so it looks like this:

Now , if we can just hold for one second because for the

- Kali chakra = 120 years
- Dwapara chakra = 2 x 120 = 240 years
- Treta chakra = 3 x 120 =360 years
- Kreta chakra = 4 x 120 = 480 years
seasoned Jyotisha, he will say,Yajvan, the real number for Vimshottari is 120 years and 5 days.Yes, this is true; for this conversation lets not concern ourselves with this 0.00114% offset in 120 years, as its a rounding error when adding up all the years of the graha's dasa's.

Stopping point #1

It is of interest to me that this is called daiva-chakra. as the name implies, this is luminous/light or daiva + chakra , period or cycle. Here we have one aaroha ( some write aroha, yet "a" is long) or increasing cycle and one decreasing cycle, avaroha , thus 2 X 12,000 or 24,000 year period. Together we have this notion of A-hora-tra or

- Note that 120 years X 360 days/year = 43,200 - have you seen this number sequence before? that is the 43,200?

{this was edited to keep with a 360 ° year ~ = 360 days} We will see this again in just a bit and it helps us connect the logic here.- Now lets add up the years of kali to kreta or 120+240+360+480 =
1200 years =1 mahachakra and is called 1 kali-mahachakra. the cycle continues:

2 x 1 kali-mahachakra = 2400 years

3 x 1 kali-mahachakra = 3600 years

4 x 1 kali-mahachakra = 4800 years- if we add these numbers above we get 1200+2400+3600+4800 =
12,000 yearsor 1 daivachakra.Ahotratralight and dark, day and night = 24,000 years.

Stopping point # 2

- 36 x 1 Daiva-chakra (from above) = 432,000. A number most subscribe to that defines the number of years in Kali yuga.
Now, where in the heck did I get this 36 number from?why not 22.656778 or 15, or 9? This number comes from Jyotish and the Dreshkana (spelled drekkana) Divisional chart or 1/3rd division as it's called.- Drekkana is = to Drek with its root in dri = to see or view. Kana = corner. So in Jyotish, kana is = to a Trine or Tri (3) Kona ( or kana = corner) ... So 3 corners = 120° x 3 corners = 360° of Bha Chakra or the zodiac.
- In a Drekkana Divisional Chart, the sign is divided up into 3 segments, hence 10° each, = 30° in one sign; yet 3 divisions per sign x 12 signs = 36.
3 corners x 12 signs = 36 total.This is where the 36 is deriived from. Now the wisdom of the parampara is here; these 3 divisions/corners are owned by the Maharishi's - Devarishi Narada, Maharishi Agastya and Brahmarishi Durvasa. Each 10° section has a purpose, Karma, Bhoga and Nasha. We will not go deeper that this for now, but wanted to give you the audit trail of the 36 and how it is all connected.This is the wisdom of Hora-shastra.- This now establishes the baseline for other yuga multiples - that is mutiples of kali yuga give us Dwapara, Treta and Sat (Kreta) Yugas, Mahayugas, Kalpha, Manvantara.
- That said, there are other computations that can also be used, yet I think for now, the 1200 number was the offer of discussion.
Time of Max Dharma

Last, but I will not pursue in depth; the Joytish vedanga view states the zodiac is divided into 3 parts or 3 pada, and puts the sandhi ( the junction points) between apa and tejas, all 120° apart. These are the [Visnu & Brahma] nabhi points... We know these nabhi as between Cancer and Leo ( water and fire), Scorpio and Sagittarius ( the direction of the center of the galaxy in Sagittarius as we discussed), and between Pisces and Aries.It is here where Dharma is established.This becomes the conversation of where dharma is on the rise & blossoms to the fullest for the family of man.

trini pada vi chakrame visnur gopa adabyha

atho dharmani dharayan

As my teachger says, this entire creation is due to the union of Brahma and Saraswati ( or the 7 rasa's) and comes into being with diva-kalpa and rests with ratri-kalpha. This happens 2 times per cycle or 7 x 2 = 14 yogas. The 7 rasa's come from the 7 graha's ( no Rahu or Ketu as they have no bodies, hence no rasa). The whole system is connected, it is infinite intelligence at work.

dhanyavaad,
