Dear Hemrajnen

Tretha yug ka naam islliay hai, us yug may thera janam miltha hai. Tretha yug may Ram-Sita ka rajya otha hai. Us yug may Ram ka hath may RAJYA SATHA aur DHARMA SATHA othee hai.

Swarg ka pehala hissa hai, sathyug. Swarg ka doosra hissa hai tretayug. Dono yug, swarg kaha jatha hai. Swarg may ek rajya, ek dharm, ek bhasha....othee hai.

Dwapar yug ka naam islliay hai, us yug may doosra dharm ana shuru otha hai. Dwa+pur mathlab - dho pur.


Dwapur may anek rajya, anek dharm, anek basha shuru o ja thee hai..

Samadham mila? Nayee tho, sampathith kariA ji. Dhanyavaad.

Just a thought to ponder.

1.If Gita states SAMBAVAMI YUGAY YUGAY, then if there are 4 yugas, HE has to come only 4 times. Then why Dasavathar or 24 avatars as per original Hindu Myth-ology?

2.In GOLDEN age, namely Sathyuga and Tretayuga why is there a need for HIM to come. Already people were the best. Gita says, YADHA YADHA HE DHARMASYA.....HE comes only when there is degradation. Golden age itself means that there was NO DEGRADATION. BTW when did Hiranyakashipu live?

3. If HE came in end of DWAPUR, DID HE COME to create the WORST KALIYUGA. HE said, I shall come to establish the truth.

4. GITA says, JANMA KARMA CHA MAY DIVYAM..That HIS birth is divine. The birth of all the avatars were not divine. Some died too.

5. Why should there be parallel avatars in same yuga? If one is there, HE should take care of all.

Lakhan Singh ji- Kaliyug ka anth may he, Mahabhari Mahabharath yudh otha hai.. Sub jeevva janthu nast o javegaa..

Deepa Kiran ji: We have had books in many forms including scriptures for many centuries. By reading them did we all ELEVATE in DIVINE VIRTUES or CHARACTERS or HAVE WE DEGRADED? HE comes again to teach directly. ALL other religious fathers like IBRAHMIN, BUDDHA, CHRIST, MOHAMMED, GURUNANAK came and spoke. They did not write books. Their followers did. So they had followed what the SUPREME SOUL had done. No single book can give complete details of HEAVEN. But HE has given it directly, now.

Rishikesh Meena ji: Ghor kaliyug abhi b bakki hai. Jaldi dikaye deghi..

HE comes to reestablish the eternal religion called the ADI SANATHANA DEVI DEVATHA DHARM.




The first principle is TO BE SOUL CONSCIOUS.

In Kaliyuga it is mentioned above- In this yuga in total of 100 % only 25 % of peoples follow Religion. But i hope 5% peoples follwo religion at this time. Good peoples are facing problems in every step and bad peoples are enjoying.

dc on June 28, 2015:

Only now I understood the truth. Religion is endless.

Deepa kiran on March 15, 2015:

Does the Biblical Shemitah Jubilee Signify the Beginning of the End of the KALI YUGA???

puja on September 12, 2014:

teacher of guru dronacharya, bhishma and karna was lord Parsuram (incarnation of lord Vishnu)

Suresh on August 01, 2014:

If you don't know, then don't deliver.... Bamana incarnation of Lord Vishnu is to send the demon king not to kill him, but to send him to patal as he was the greatest in endowment and donation. Bali was, in fact, asked by the Baman for just three "pag" or "foot" land, and occupies all the sky and land in his two "pags". When asked where to put the third "pag", Bali offers his head before he moves to Patal lok.
