According to Puranas, each kalpa consists of fourteen manvantaras and each manvantara is directed by a different one Manu (the first man in each cycle). The present universe is said to be ruled by the 7th Manu named Vaivasvata. In Vishnu Purana, Vaivasvata, also known as Sraddhadeva or Satyavrata, was the king of Dravida before the great flood. He was warned of the flood by the Matsya avatar (fish) of Vishnu and built a boat to bring the Vedas, Manu’s family and the seven wise men to safety, with the help of Matsya. The total age of the universe is 311.04 trillion years (human years). The current age is 155.521972944 trillion years. How it is calculated: -> There are 4 ages on earth that continue to circulate: Satya Yuga – 1.728 million years Treta Yuga – 1.296 million years Dwapara Yuga – 0.864 million years Kali Yuga – 0.432 million years Total: 4.32 million human years. -> This Yuga cycle is called Maha (in English it means big) or Divya (divine) Yuga. A thousand such cycles make up one day of Brahmas. One day of Brahma is therefore 4.32 million * 1000 = 4.32 billion human years. Each such day of Brahma is called “Kalpa”. His night is also 4.32 billion human years. During its day, life exists in the universe. There is no life form at night. So a whole day and a whole night are 8.64 billion human-years. -> The age of Brahma is 100 years. Each year of Brahma has 360 days and the same number of nights. The total age of Brahma is thus 360 * 100 * 8.64 billion = 311.040 billion human years. i.e. 311.04 trillion years. This period is called “Maha Kalpa”. -> The lifespan of the universe is a “Maha Kalpa”. that is, 311.04 trillion human years. This period of time is also the duration of one breath of “Vishnu”. When he exhales, thousands of universes arise and in each universe a “Brahma” is born. When “Vishnu” inhales, all universes are sucked in and Brahma dies. -> This cycle is endless and eternal. This is why “Vishnu” is considered eternal in Vedic science (or religion). How old is our universe: -> Note that the period of Satya Yuga is 0.4x, Treta Yuga 0.3x, Dwapara Yuga 0.2x and Kali Yuga 0.1x, where x is the length of a Maha-Yuga cycle. I will then use ‘x’ as the 1 Maha Yuga cycle. -> On a day of Brahma there are 14 “Manvantara” (Manu-Avatar). Each “Manvantara” is divided into 71 “Maha Yuga” cycles. So a total of 14 * 71 = 994x (Mahayuga cycles). -> Remaining cycles (1 day of Brahma contains 1000 Maha-Yuga cycles) are used to fill gaps between Manvantara. Before and after each Manvantara (referred to as “Sandhya” or “Sandhyamsa”) there is a cross of 1.728 million (age of Satya Yuga or 0.4x) human years. The total number of crosses is 15 (since there are 14 manvantaras). The total gap period is therefore = 0.4 * 15 = 6x. So in total makes 1000 Maha Yuga cycles or 1 Brahma day. -> According to the Vedic texts, the current age of Brahma is 50 Brahma years and 1 Brahma day (we are on the 1st day of the 2nd half of Brahma) and we are in the seventh “Manvantara”, the 28th turnover of his 71 year Yuga cycles. In this cycle we are at the beginning of Kali Yuga. The exact age of Kali Yuga is not known, but it is between 5000 and 10000 years. Let’s assume 8,000 human years for the calculation. -> So current age of our universe (in Maha Yuga cycles) = (50 * 720 * 1000) – 50 years * (360 days + 360 nights) * total no. of cycles on a day / night + (6 * 71) – 6 manvantara of 71 Maha-Yuga cycles each + (7 * 0.4) – 7 intersections or gaps for 6 manvantara + (27 * 1) – We are in the 28th cycle of 71 + (0.4 + 0.3 + 0.2) – In this cycle we are in Kali Yuga. Satya Yuga, Treat Yuga and Dwapara Yuga are 0.4x, 0.3x and 0.2x, respectively. + approx. 8000 human years – very small, so ignore. So the total age = (36,000,000 + 456.7) x = 36,000,456.7 * 4.32 million = 155,521,972.944 million years = 155.521972944 trillion human years. Now add the age of Kaliyuga. ie around 8000 human years. If we calculate the exact age of Kaliyuga, we can know the exact age of the universe.
