It is said that in Satya yuga people were a lot larger than today in Kali yuga. And it is said in Bhagavata purana and in several other places that when Kalki avatara will destroy all sinners at the end of Kali yuga, then all saints which will be still alive at that time will feel a great relief and thus a next Satya yuga will begin. But the people in Kali yuga are really small compared to Satyua yuga standards! Will these survivors suddenly increase in height?

    I don't think the survivors would magically increase in height, I think their descendants will increase in height. Commented Apr 5, 2015 at 19:13

    @ChinmaySarupria I think the transition in height could be achieved fairly easily in the Sandhya and Sadhyansa transition periods between Yugas. In any case, do you know of any scriptures that mention ascending and descending Yugas? Commented Nov 7, 2015 at 13:53

    @ChinmaySarupria Well, as far as I know all the Hindu scriptures that discuss the order of the Yugas don't mention the ascending and descending thing, so I trust Hindu scripture over Yukteswar's theory. Commented Nov 7, 2015 at 14:46

    @hijarian Yukteswar was a disciple of Lahiri Mahasaya, who is believed to be a disciple of a 2000-year old sage called Mahavtar Babaji. These figures would all be part of the Advaita Sampradaya. In fact, followers of Babaji even believe that Babaji was the one who gave diksha to Adi Shankaracharya. Commented Nov 8, 2015 at 3:54

    @hijarian Lahiri Mahasaya was a famous Kriya Yogi. Kriya Yoga was revived by Mahavatar Babaji and Paramahamsa Yogananda once said "Kriya Yoga is the aeroplane method to reach God".
