In His creation God made every things and saw it were good. In the last He made man and He (God) realized it was good. But it is a matter of surprise to hear God say that something is not good in His creation. God knows it is not good for the man to be alone and before the man asks for help, God plans to make a suitable helper who corresponds to the man and yet is unique. The man realizes his need after naming the animals and realizing that there is none who corresponds to him in the image of God who can help him in fulfilling the responsibilities and commands God has given him. God makes the woman from the man’s side so that together they will form one flesh and have an intimate relationship that takes precedence over the parent-child relationship. The man and his wife enjoyed perfect, sinless intimacy with no shame or fear.
Guru Purnima is national wide festival which is dedicated towards the Guru in this world. Guru word is used for the teacher who teaches anything to a learner. If we relate it to the ancient time, is actually worshipping the Guru Vyasa who wrote the Four Vedas. But in today time, it is all about worshipping your teacher and showing gratitude towards them for their impeccable hard work for teaching you.
Guru Purnima 2016 Date: When is Guru Purnima?

Purnima word is used because on this day, there is a full moon.
In 2016, Guru Purnima will be celebrated on 19th July.
Aadi Shri Arun will celebrate Guru Purnima on 21st July 2016.
History of Guru Purnima
It is said that, the Guru Vyasa wrote all the 4 Vedas that were recited by the Lord Brahma and every person in this world is in debt for the work, that saint Vyasa did. He also wrote several Purans. And from those times, a day was dedicated towards the Gurus and this day is called as “Guru Purnima”.
It has a deep significance in the past and in today’s world also. As this day is dedicated towards the Gurus, people irrespective of caste etc offer their prayers to their gurus thanking them for the knowledge they have provided to the learner.
In this age of Kaliyuga, where Lord Narayan’s name is known as Lord Kalki, then why do you take the name of other deities? This is like digging a well for finding holy water when the river Ganges flows nearby. Why do you milk a goat when you are entitled to the divine milk of the Kamdhenu cow?
Calculation of End of Kali Yuga:
I will give the calculations of theYugas and the end of Kaliyuga below.
According to our ancient scriptures, Brahma, the creator, creates and destroys the universe cyclically. The life of Brahma is 120 divine years called Mahakalpa. Everyday he creates 14 Manus one by one and they create and control the world. So there are fourteen Manus in one divine day called Kalpa of Brahma. The life of each Manu is called Manvantara and it has 71 eras of four quarters. Each quarter is has four Yugas – Krita or Satya, Treta, Dvapara and Kali. The following are the complete calculations of Vedic units of time and periods.
The Vedic Units of Time – Macro level
SATYUG 4,32,000 YEARS X 4 = 17,28,000 YEARS
TRETA 4,32,000 YEARS X 3 = 12,96,000 YEARS
DWAPAR 4,32,000 YEARS X 2 = 8,64,000 YEARS
KALIYUG 4,32,000 YEARS X 1 = 4,32,000 YEARS
1 MAHAYUG (GRAND TOTAL OF ALL THE YUGAS) = 4,320,000 YEARS
71 MAHAYUG = 43,20,000X71 = 1 MANVANTAR
1 MANVANTAR = 30,6720,000 YEARS
14 MANVANTAR = 4,294,080,000 YEARS
(There are 14 Manvantars)
The earth remains submerged in the water for the period of 8,64,000 years i.e. half the number of Satyug, before the start of each Manvantar, it also remains submerged in the water for the same number of years, i.e. 8,64,000 years, after the completion of each Manvantar.
So in 14 Manvantars the number of years
17,28,000 x 15 = 2,59,20,000
(Number of year in Satyug)
+ 14 Manvantar = 42,9, 40,80,000
1 Kalpa = 4320,000,000 years
One day & night of Brahma = 4,320,000 Mahayug x 100 = 4,320,00,000 years
Since the one moment in the life of Brahma is considered to be of our 100years, therefore the life of Brahma in 100 years will be
4,32,00,00,000 x 360 x 100 = 1,555,200,000,000 years
The Present Age of Cosmos according to the Vedic System is as follows:
There are 14 Manvantaras altogether. The present period is passing through the seventh Manvantara called Vaivaswata Manvantara.
One Manvantara consists of 71 Mahayugs, out of which 27 Mahayugs have already passed. We are passing through the first phase of the Kali Yuga which itself is the third Yuga of the 28th Mahayuga and which has come after the passing of Satya Yuga, Treta and Dwapar Yuga.
The time period of Manvantara (exclusive period, when the earth is submerged in water, in the beginning and in the end) = 306,720,000 years
1) Multiplying these years by 6 = 30,67,20,000 x 6 (Because we are in the midst of 7th Manvantara, of the Svetvaaraah Kalpa and 6 Manvantaras have already passed) = 1,8,0,300,000 years
The time period of Pralaya consists of 17,28,000 years since 7 Pralayas have passed, after the end of 6th Kalpa and before the beginning of 7th Kalpa, so 17,28,000x 7 = 12,096,000 years
Adding we have:
1,840,300,000 + 120 96 000 + 1,852,396,000 years
Therefore, after 1,85,24,16,000 years ‘VAIVASVAT MANVANTARA’ has started.
2) 27 Mahayugs with each Mahayuga consisting of 43,20,000 years. 43,20,000 x 27 = 116,640,000 years have passed
Total = 1,96,90,56,000 years
3) Now the time period of Kali Yuga in the 28th Yuga =
Time period of Satya Yuga = 17,28,000
Time period of Treta = 12,96,000
Time period of Dwapar = 8,64,000
TOTAL = 38,88,000
Since all the above three Yugas have already passed, it means that after 38,88,000 years, Kali Yuga came into existence.
4) Kali Yuga started on Bhadrapada, Krishnapaksha -13th day, in Vyatipaat yoga at midnight, in the Aashlesha Nakshatra and the age of the Kali Yuga has been fixed as 5101 years as till date that is Vikram Samvat 2057 = Shake 1922 = 2000 AD.
The Hindu New Year 2073 or Vikram Nav Varsh Samvant (in year 2016) in the traditional lunar Hindu calendars followed in North India – especially in Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkand, Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Delhi and Chhattisgarh is celebrated on Chaitra Shukala Pratipada (March 2016– April 2016).
Shaka Year is 1938 in 2016.
Exact year of beginning of Kali Yug:
The greatest astronomer and mathematician, Aryabhatt, was born in 476 AD. His work in astronomy is an asset to the scholars. He gave an Accurate figure for pi ( ) 3.1416. He finished his work “Aryabhattiya” in 499 AD in which he gave the exact year of the beginning of Kaliyug. He wrote – “when the three yugas (Satyayug, Treta yug and Dwapara yug) have elapsed and 60 multiply by 60 i.e. 3600 years of Kaliyug have already passed, I am now 23 years old.” It means that in the 3,601st year of Kaliyug era he was 23 years old. Aryabhatt was born in 476 AD. Thus, the beginning of Kaliyug comes to 3601 – (476+23) = 3102 BC.
Total years of Kaliyuga has passed: (3102+2016) = 5118 years
Age of the cosmos is estimated :
Kalpa consist of 4,32,00,00,000 years and out of these 1,97,29,49,101 years have passed. Therefore, the earth’s existence, according to the calculations devised by our ancient sages, comes up to 1,97,29,49,101 years till date. It is interesting to note that according to scientific calculations, the age of the cosmos is estimated between 15 and 20 billion years.
It is my personal experience based on Holy Scriptures, I am putting out the information about the End of Kaliyuga And The coming of the 10th avatar of Lord Vishnu – Kalki Maha Avatar.
The first fact is that Lord Kalki is a secret avatar and He has come to destroy and remove evil from this world by hiding Himself. (Shrimad Bhagawatam Maha Puran) Therefore it is not possible to see Him as a well known figure. Lord Kalki is continuing His work in secret and He will not reveal Himself till His work is finished. After that He will take rest in Narayana Grih (Ascand Puran) and that is when people will become aware of His physical presence. The prediction is that when the sun turns into darkness and the moon blood red, then Lord kalki’s appearance in front of people is imminent. (Bible Acts 2:20, Joel 2:31)
The second fact is that we cannot reach accuracy about the predictions of the end of Kaliyuga which are based on vedic and scientific calculations because in all the accounting given, corrections are not made for the impact of lunar eclipses. The Mahabharata clearly mentions this when the time period of the Pandavas exile is disputed by the Kauravas. (Mahabharata Viratparva page 447)
This is why calculations are off the mark and to come to correct conclusion we have to correlate the calculations with the symptoms of end times. Some of these symptoms are mentioned in the Skand Purana in Maheshwar khand, Kumarika khand, Page No 129.
“When 3020 years of Kaliyug would have passed then a king named Vikramaditya will rule.”
“When 3100 years of Kaliyug would have passed then a king named Shaka will rule”
“When 3330 years would have passed then the Nand dynasty will rule and will be destroyed by a man named Chanakya”
“When 3600 years would have passed then Lord Buddha will appear”
“After 4400 years King Pramiti will rule. After death of the King Pramiti, the Varnas system will be destroyed and effect of Kali yug wii be on pick.”
The book “Kalki comes in 1985” predicts that Lord Vishnu will take avatar as Lord kalki as the son of Vishnuyash and Maa Sumati in Sambhal grama on Dwadashi, Baisakh month Shukla paksh in 1985. That day in 1985 was on the 2nd of May.
The Kalki purana also says the same thing in 1;2:15
