Yug cycle

In our last article we told you that Satyug began on the amavasya of Chaitra month of Hindu lunar calander. Today, this day is celebrated as either Gudi Padwa or the first day of Navratras. Ever since the kalchakra has begun, the cosmos has seen 4 yugs on Earth, namely Satyug, Treta Yug, Dwapar Yug and Kalyug. 
 
It is interesting to note that the average life span of humans differs in every yug. In Hinduism, the creation and destruction of universe believed to be a cyclic process that repeats itself forever. 
 
A look at scriptures will give you information about how time is calculated. We simplify it for you:
1000 Maha-Yugas = 1 Kalpa = 1 day (morning) of Brahma
Thus 2 Kalpas constitue day and night and this equals 8.64 billion human years
 
Interpretations from Vishnu Puran gives the following calculation:
Satyug lasted 1,728,000 years human years 
Treta Yuga lasted 1,296,000 years
Dwapara Yuga lasted 864,000 years
Kal Yuga will last 432,000 years
 
This also includes the time of Sandhya and Sandhyansa, that appear before starting and after ending of each Yug.
Read on to know the average human age in each yug...

According to mythology, the average human height, lifespan and intelligence declines from Satyug to Kalyug
Average human lifespan in Satyug was 100,000 years. But it declined to 10,000 years in Treta Yug. According to Valmiki Ramayana, Lord Rama lived to be atleast 11,000 years old.
