I have heard about the 4 Yugas, the Mahayuga and how Brahma created everything and how many human years is equivalent to Brahma's 1 single day.

But to which Yuga did the Dinosaurs belong to?

    @KeshavSrinivasan well not everyone agrees on those numbers therefore I left the possibility open that it may be from another Manvantara. Whatever it is, it is definitely not in the same yuga and in the same mahayuga :). Thanks for the info – Sai Apr 22 '15 at 21:42

    @KeshavSrinivasan yes considering that Sri Yuktweshwar says in Holy Science that He received that knowledge from His Guru's Guru Mahavatar Babaji that would cover a big list of monks and ascetics who come under the Guru parampara. Swami Vivekananda also when asked about the Yugas said (according to ramakrishnavivekananda.info/vivekananda/volume_5/…) that " There is no mention of such divisions (ofYugas) in the Vedas. They are arbitrary assumptions of Pauranika times". Also some modern saints have said Kali Yuga is to end soon :) – Sai Apr 22 '15 at 22:15

    @ChinmaySarupria I have no doubt that if we take the million-year Yuga lengths, we'll find one or more dates that correspond to the 24th Treta Yuga matching all the astronomical information. The standard Puranic Yuga lengths are long enough that there would be plenty of time to recur. In any case, I think what the people who calculated the 5114 BC date is they took the most recent date that worked. I doubt they said that that was the only date that worked in all history, but I'd have to examine their work. – Keshav Srinivasan Oct 18 '15 at 13:11

    @ChinmaySarupria According to paramahamsa yogananda,desciple of Yukteshwar, who clearly stated that yukteshwar is talking about another ecquinoctial cycle occurring within current kaliyuga. So he is talking about ascending dwapara within current kaliyuga.It is mentioned in the footnote of "Autobiography of yogi". – tekkk Oct 27 '15 at 17:22

    Here is his precise quote "The Hindu scriptures place the present world-age as occurring within the Kali Yuga of a much longer universal cycle than the simple 24,000 year ecquinoctial cycle with which Sri Yukteswar was concerned. The universal cycle of the scriptures of 4,300,560,000 years in extent, and measures out a Day of Creation. " – tekkk Oct 27 '15 at 17:25
