From the story of Ramayana and Mahabharata, I have come to know that Lord Narayana takes incarnation at the end of every era (yuga). And when Lord's incarnation dies then era changes (and new era starts).
For example: Lord Narayana took incarnation as Lord Rama nearly at the end of Treta yuga. When Lord Rama died then new era (Dwapara yuga) started. Similarly, Lord krishna took birth at the end of Dwapara yuga and on his death Kali yuga started.
Thus I believe Lord Narayana takes incarnation in every era for following purposes:
- To start new era (yuga).
- To kill all bad creatures (including demons, humans and others) so that in new era there will not any obstacle to start over Dharma as another new beginning i.e. yuga.
- To set examples of dharma by their deeds that will teach people of new era about dharma from new perspective. Means as new era is going to start so he use to set new examples (that guide towards dharma) for new people of new era.
Thus Lord Narayana took incarnation to change era or to start new era (according to my learning).
Here is my real question
The thing I want to know the time of Lord Rama and Lord Krishna death. Means whether they died at end of era OR in between the era (not at end of era).
Although I believe I am right on my points but I have been asked for proof of my theory. I have proof but that proof is something like this (it is not scriptural reference because I don't read scriptures directly but instead it's from story of incarnation life. Here it is...
Lord Krishna took birth at end of Dwapara yuga
The wife of Bala Rama (incarnation of Sheshanag) is the kind of proof that Lord Krishna took birth at the end of Dwapara yuga. Here is how...
Revati (wife of Balarama) did born in Satya yuga and married in Dwapara yuga with Balarama. At the time of satyayuga, father of Revati couldn't find any perfect husband for his daughter in whole earth since his daughter was not an ordinary lady. So there was no any man that can properly suits Revati (as per her father's thoughts). So his father went to Brahma Loka with Revati. There they did meet Lord Brahma. Revati's father said to Brahma that I have searched whole earth but I couldn't find any suitable husband for my daughter. It seems there is not a man on earth who can marry my daughter. he asked to Brahma that Should I find husband for my daughter in other loka (world) instead of Prithvi Loka (earth)? In which Loka I can find suitable husband from my daughter?
Then Lord Brahma replied "You will find husband for your daughter in prithvi loka (earth). Then her father replied "But I have searched whole earth and couldn't find any suitable husband for her".
Lord Brahma said "The time in which you were searching husband for your daughter, that time has been changed completely now. The speed of time in Brahma loka is extremely fast than Prithvi Loka. The little time that you spend in Brahma loka with you daughter, on that little time on Prithvi loka, 3 eras (Yuga) has been completed. On earth Satya yuga and Treta Yuga already completed (They were from Satya yuga) and Dwapara yuga is going to end soon. Right now in Dawapara yuga Lord Narayana is himself present on earth as his eighth incarnation. Sheshnaag also took incarnation with Lord Narayana as Balarama. And he (Balarama) is suitable husband for your daughter. So, now go to Lord Krishna and Balarama." So then they went to them and Balarama uses his plough to decrease the height of Revati (Since Revati was from Satyayuga, hence she was very tall. So Balraama decreases her height as per Dwapara yuga).
NOTE: In the above story I have highlighted the Point where Brahma said Dwapara yuga is going to end and Lord Krishna is there. That simply implies that Lord Krishna was on earth at the end of Dwapara yuga. He didn't take birth in between of Dwapara yuga but instead took birth when Dwapara yuga is going to end.
Hence like this I have learned from stories of incarnation of Narayana that they take incarnation at the end of every yuga. Kalki incarnation of Narayana will also appear at the end of Kali yuga, not now.
One person claimed this as my personal theory that Lord Narayana takes incarnation at end of every era. He claims that there is no scriptural reference on this. Even if there is not scriptural reference that doesn't mean it is fake theory.
This can still be proved that Lord Narayana takes incarnation at the end of every era by finding their time of Death. That's why I am here to ask mainly about time of death of Lord Rama and Lord Krishna because those incarnations of Narayana was era changing incarnation. If they were born at end of era and died at end of era then there will be no doubt that Lord Narayana always takes incarnation at the end of era.
So what was the time of death of Rama and Krishna?
