Reader remarks: 21 births in the in-laws
(Note reader remarks are in bold.)
Thank you for your question. I will be more specific this time. Please bear with me. 🙂
Let us do some math.
8 births in Golden age with a duration of 125 to 150 years. Which of those numbers should I pick? or perhaps the mean or an average? Most choose 150 and then multiply that by 8 = 1200 years.
Since we know that the GOLDEN AGE LASTS 1250 years, then we see that 50 years are missing. Aren’t those 50 years part of the Golden age? YES. Then why should I call that period the “confluence between the Golden age and the Silver age?”
For convenience. ?????
Let us not plug numbers conveniently, if we are going to use numbers. Those 50 years belong to the Golden age. The silver age does not require a confluence.
Baba says that there are confluence ages between the consecutive ages. Transformation happens gradually and not all of a sudden.
In this confluence, we have been taking our own sweet time to become golden aged / silver aged souls. One can give many excuses to defend one self; one really needs time to change. 🙂
It starts when the coronation of Rama and Sita occurs; just like day “1” starts with the coronation of Lakshmi and Narayan.
Baba did not say that Laksmi Narayan’s kingdom finishes exactly after 1250 years. Not sure whether it needs 100 years in other confluences, but it should be much less… may be some 50 years, 25 each from each yug as it is very easy to climb down the ladder unlike the present stage where we have to climb up; poor Brahmins!
Besides if we are going to add “100 years” confluence between the Golden age and the Silver age, we must add some quantity(confluence time) between the Silver age and Copper age and between the Copper age and the Iron age. If we do that, then the numbers of births specified in gyan will not match.
This point is explained in the paragraph above.
Another point to consider if we keep on making calculations out of fixed numbers, are the duration of those births.
The Iron age has 42 births. If we divide 1250 between 42, that gives us 30 years of life as an average.
There is no average life span in the iron age. One takes approximately 20 births in the copper age and later on, in the Iron age, slowly his life span becomes less and less.
May be by the time the (Brahmin/ B.K) soul completes half the kaliyug, based on his karmic accounts, he can live for a very short period in a particular birth, and can die even in the womb some times. And in the very next birth he may live for some 60years. Before coming to gyan, one soul took me back in to the past during meditation and i saw myself dying in a hospital as a 10 year old girl and my parents experiencing deep sorrow.
That means that if you are a BK now and your age is approaching 100, you had to be born and die almost right away before, because 3 lives are already in your last birth. This is just to demonstrate that we cannot use a fixed number such as “150 years” in the Golden age to make calculations. We could live UP TO 150 years at that time but that is not the number for everyone in the GA. That is why I use Brahma Baba as the measuring stick.
The only confluence age is at this time and it is for Brahmin souls only.
For there rest, there is entropy all the time.
The “confluence age” for Brahmins will end when Krishna is born. That time is not the “confluence age,” neither the Golden age. It is a time without a name, I’d like to call it “post destruction.” It should last 35 years, because if I recall correctly, that is the age of Krishna before becoming Narayan.
Baba gives different numbers at different times… 🙂 He knows that His smart children would like to make efforts based on the dates/ time given. So, He does not confirm any year, or time.
That is why, Brahma Baba takes his first birth “before the Golden age” and still has 8 births in the Golden age. That makes the 21 births. Also, let us recall that Krishna is completely Satopradhan, therefore; he will not experience any sorrow during that time… so basically, he will be experiencing the “in-laws.”
It is time we let go off these calculations and just take the essence of the history. Otherwise, we will become more time conscious than soul conscious.
Thank you for your challenging question!
