Let us consider two of the famous sons of Vaivaswatha, Ikshvaku, the ancestor of Sri Rama and Saryati, the ancestor of Revati Devi, the sister-in-law of Sri Krishna.
Saryati’s daughter Sukanya married Bhrgu’s son Cyavana.
Saryati had a son called Anarta, a grandson called Revata, a great grandson called Raivata Kakudmi and a great-great- grand daughter called Revati Devi. Thus Revati Devi is the 7th generation from Saryati and 8th from Vaivaswatha Manu.
Revata built Kusasthali in the ocean, which Sri Krishna later converted into Dwaraka.
Raivata Kakudmi and Revata visited Brahma. In the duration of listening to a concert, while waiting for him, 27 Caturyugas passed as well as the Krutha and Treta Yugas of the 28th caturyuga. On Brahma’s advice, Revati Devi was given in marriage to Balarama.
- I initially tried using relativistic equations to determine how fast Brahma loka was moving away from Bhu Loka. But I later felt that the explanation may have been simpler.
- I later did an analysis based on precession., treating this story as an “overload” on the term Revati as the lady and the nakshatram so that this was a story that encoded astronomy.
- I think currently that Vyasa needed to explain what happened in the 27 missing caturyugas between the Matsya Avataram and the start of our Caturyuga. Vyasa had no problem in conceptualising time travel and Indians believe in time cycles as opposed to time lines. And he used this to make a scale and origin correction in the calendar. To my mind… it is the Matsya Avataram that had to be “back-dated” to solve some other problem. (May be to accomodate his greater knowledge of astronomy, after all Vyasa composed one of the astronomical Siddhantas).
- Currently, I think that that the Matsya Avataram and the end of the Caksusa Manvantaram, took place at the beginning of our Kruta Yugam.
- This puts the historic Vaivaswatha Manu, spanning time from the end of the historic Caksusa Manvantaram to the beginning of our Krutha Yuga, which is the first Caturyuga of the Vaivaswata Manvantaram. (The astronomical Caksusa Manvantaram is still 27.9 caturyugas ago.)
- The Kruta and Tretha Yuga together covered 6 generations. Vaiwasvatha, Saryati, Anarta from Krutha Yuga., Revata, Raivata and Revati from Tretha. This causes no difficulty if we take 60/100 year yugas. We also have to decide whether to take the 4:3:2:1 or 1:1:1:1 ratios for the yuga durations. (How many kinds of Yugas are there?)
- It also validates these analyses.
