The Four Yugas

A Yuga is an age with specific characteristics;  in each Yuga different  incarnations  of Krishna appear.  Four Yugas make a cycle, a thousand  of which make one daylight period in the life of Lord Brahma;  that is also the duration  of one night in his life.
  • Satya-yuga    is the Golden Age which lasts for 1,728,000 years, in which the process of self-realization  is meditation  on Visnu.
  • Treta-yuga    is the Silver Age which lasts for 1,296,000years, in which the process of self-realization  is opulent sacrifices.
  • Dvapara-yuga    is the Bronze Age which lasts for 864,000years, in which the process of self-realization  is elaborate  Deity worship in the temples.
  • Kali-yuga   is the Iron Age of quarrel  and hypocrisy which lasts for 432,000years, in which the process of self-realization  is sankirtana,  the chanting  of the holy names of God.We have already  passed through  5,000years of the current  Kali-yuga.
After the destruction  which follows the end of Kali-yuga, Satya-yuga begins again. TheYuga cycle is thus a continuous one like the cycle of the seasons
