# Are we in Kali-Yuga's pre-Sandhi period?

The time-cycle of creation is that each Chatur-Yuga is 43,20,000 years, split up as such:

1 deva day = 1 human year.
1 deva year = 360 deva days.
1 deva year = 360 human years.

Each Yuga is calculated in certain number of deva years plus a tenth of it before and after called sandhis.

kali yuga = 1200 deva years = 100 pre-sandhi + 1000 + 100 post-sandhi

dwapara = 2 x Kali = 2400 deva years = 200 pre-sandhi + 2000 + 200 post-sandhi

treta = 3 x Kali = 3600 deva years = 300 pre-sandhi + 3000 + 300 post-sandhi

krita = 4 x Kali = 4800 deva years = 400 pre-sandhi + 4000 + 400 post-sandhi

So does that mean that when Sri Krishna left earth, the post-sandhi period of Dwarapa Yuga (200 deva years or 72000 manava years) got completed, and now we are in the pre-sandhi period of Kali Yuga (100 deva years or 36000 manava years)?

100 deva years = 36,000 human years. Of which we are currently (2018) in year 5120.

Does that mean Kali-Yuga 'main' (after pre-sandhi period is over) doesn't start until 31000 years from now?

Note - Some people assume that these numbers (1000, 2000 etc.) are in human years, but they're not.

• Brahma Purana - Text 50 sri-bhagavan uvaca kaleh pancasahasrani varshani tishtha bhutale papani papino yani tubhyam dasyanti snanatah Translation: The blessed Lord said: On the earth 5,000 years of kali will be sinful and sinners will deposit their sins in you by bathing. kaler dasha-sahasrani madbhaktah santi bhu-tale ekavarna bhavishyanti madbhakteshu gateshu ca Translation: For 10,000 years of kali such devotees of mine will fill the whole planet. After the departure of My devotees there will only be one varna [outcaste]. Aug 18, 2018 at 2:19
• @YDS, not duplicate. that question wrongly assumes the years mentioned (4800, 1200 etc.) are human-years.

• @Archit - we are in Kali Yuga. It's just that the initial few years is called Sandhi because it is closely associated with previous yuga. When we do Sankalpa in rituals, we say 'Kali Yuge' only, not 'Kali Yuga Sandhye'

Yes, Time Period of Lord BrahmaIn Every Time Period. There are some points which is noticed

1. There is Post Sandhi we call it Sandhi Starting of Every { Yuga }.

Then

1. There is Time Spaning Period Which are called Divine Years,etc.

Then

1. There is Pre Sandhi we call it Sandhyaansh Ending of Every { Yuga }.
