Dwapara Yuga

This is a blog around the dawning of Dwapara Yuga, the age of energy. This age is characterized by a breakdown of the idea of a material world and a growing consciousness of the underlying unity of peoples, energy, and nature. The most emblematic evidence of the new age is found in our deepening understanding of finer energies and the structure of universe from the year 1900 onwards.

Strange Bedfellows — the “Alt Right” and the Yugas

I just came across a BBC write-up of “Savitri Devi”, a French/Greek spy, who identified the Axis leaders of WWII as instrumental in the ending of Kali Yuga. I had never heard of her previously.

“Savitri Devi: The mystical fascist”

I consider Paramhansa Yogananda to be the key figure in the dawning of Dwapara Yuga.

I know that Yoganandaji had had to present a spiritual rather than political message in the turbulent times of the 1920s to 40s, avoiding direct involvement in the many independence movements in India that followed “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” line of thinking.

In the 1920s, he had come close to being lynched in Miami given anti immigrant sentiment and a backlash against the many carnies, carpet baggers, and grifters presenting themselves as yogis, fakirs, and gurus. The corrupt Sheriff was still the Sheriff.

In the sense of a cosmic play, presumably both “good” and “bad” guys are always needed to keep things “interesting!”

WWII brought many horrors.

It also began to break Kali Yuga constraints, e.g., with the founding of Israel, Pakistan, and India, modern Germany and Japan, the first steps towards equality in the US for Native Americans, African Americans, and Women, and representation for ordinary people rather than “beribboned buffoon” elites in the 1945 British elections.

Science Fiction

Dwapara Yuga
Science Fiction

The genre of science fiction has been called the literature of ideas.

It both tries to predict the future and offer insights around our present times.

It began as an oral and then written tradition, a mix of mythology and fact.

Later expressions were in comics, toys, radio, movies, television, video games, ... and online blogs.

Some highlights IMHO are

Kali Yuga

360 BC (Descending Kali 340) Timaeus and Critias - Plato - The legend of Atlantis

1516 AD (Ascending Kali 1016) Utopia - More

1626 AD (Ascending Kali 1126) New Atlantis - Bacon

Dwapara Yuga to today

1818 (Ascending Dwapara 118) Frankenstein - Shelley

1870 (Ascending Dwapara 170) Twenty Thousands Leagues - Verne

1895 (Ascending Dwapara 195) The Time Machine - Wells

1905 (Ascending Dwapara 205) The Scarlet Pimpernel - Orczy - First Super Hero

1959 (Ascending Dwapara 259) Starship Troopers - Heinlein

1968 (Ascending Dwapara 268) Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep - Dick

I asked the ChatGPT Artificial Intelligence tool to “Write me a verse about Dwapara Yuga” and here it is —

In Dwapara Yuga, truth and virtue reign
People live in harmony, free from pain
The gods are present, and righteousness prevails
In this golden age, all stories and myths unveil

The land is fertile, and abundance is rife
People live in peace, free from strife
The Vedas are studied, and wisdom is sought
In Dwapara Yuga, the world is fraught

With opportunity and prosperity
And people live in harmony and unity
But as all things must pass, this age too shall fade
And the cycle of time, forever be played.

A great first step in what over time can be clean and abundant nuclear power. Fusion is building up atoms, which is cleaner than fission, the current breaking down process that is much more polluting. It has to be the poster child of Dwapara Yuga technology.

Highly recommend Graham Hancock’s new Netflix show where he goes globe hunting for evidence of mysterious, lost civilizations dating back to the last Ice Age.

It covers similar sights to Ancient Aliens but without the tedious “the aliens did everything” thesis.

I particularly liked Mr Hancock’s even-handed approach and acknowledgement of opposing views. A number of the observations support a Yuga centric view, or at least that older civilizations were much more advanced than is credited in mainstream academia.
