Evidence that we are in The Twilight of the Kali Yuga
I fully understand and realize that the authorities on the ancient Sanskrit texts in India do not agree with what I am going to say here. The traditional and currently accepted timeline for the end of the Kali Yuga in India is that we have another 426,900 more years of the Kali Yuga.
However in 1991, I read Alain Danielou’s eye-opening enlightening ‘While the Gods Play, Shaiva Oracles and Predictions on the Cycle of History and the Destiny of Mankind’ (1985/Inner Traditions). Over the years I reread this book many times. It has taken me multiple readings, along with many related texts and my own experiences, to absorb what he said. To find out something about his life, I also read all of Danielou’s books that have been translated from the French into English.
Danielou said that he was taken into the trust of a group of Shaivites who were rather secretive. Unlike so many other ambitious gurus, they did not head for the west to promote their sacred teachings.
Danielou was French and had taught himself Sanskrit; but for whatever reason, these Shaivites trusted him and initiated him into their metaphysical system that included the theory of the Cycles of Time. ‘While the Gods Play’ contains a clear explanation of that school of Shaivite knowledge.
Danielou said that these Shaivites told him the ‘true’ dates. He gives 1939 as the date of the beginning this Twilight of the Kali Yuga. He connects this to the ‘discovery of nuclear fission’ – perhaps because it will be various forms of nuclear fission, including nuclear power facilities, which will be instrumental in the end. Like Fukushima?
Monsieur Danielou tells us, “The final catastrophe will take place during this twilight. The last traces of this present humankind will have disappeared in 2442.”
It took me years to assimilate the theory of the Cycles of Time. I was born in the wild west and brought up on faith in ‘American know-how’ and ‘progress’! It was really not until I read Rene Guenon’s devastatingly brilliant ‘Reign of Quantity, and The Signs of the Times’ that I was completely convinced. Guenon’s French razor-slicing arguments forever altered my consciousness. Do read this book. It will blow the cobwebs right out of your brain.
Later I began to study the works of Swami Lakshmanjoo. I know, you never heard of him – and that is a good thing! Lakshmanjoo was the real jewel. He had his own money and never took money from any of his disciples. In fact he gave money to many who needed it over the years. He stayed in Kashmir teaching only those who sought him out and never sought fame. The great Sanskrit scholars flocked to his ashram.
I noticed him because as I began to study Abhinavagupta and Kashmir Shaivism, every book was dedicated to Swami Lakshmanjoo – “without his patient guidance” these texts would never have been translated or understood. Laskhmanjoo was the last source of this Kashmir code Sanskrit. Born in 1907, he passed this world in 1991.
Many video recordings were made of Swami Lakshmanjoo and as I became immersed in his teachings, I at last felt the grace of a real guru. Even though Lakshmanjoo has already cleft the body, he touched me with his grace – and after so many years, I absorbed in my Heart, my very Being, what I had known in my mind. I began to communicate with his people in LA.
And it was by chance that the most trusted disciple of Swami Lakshmanjoo shared the knowledge with me and gave me permission to tell those who will benefit.
According to Swami Lakshmanjoo:
We are in PRALAYA, the eternally repeating process of the Dissolution of this cycle of time.
