The time as we know and experience is different than the time that was told to us by Einstein. We presumed that the time is independent unit and then Einstein proposed and proved that the SPACE -TIME is constant and only thing which is unchanging is speed of light. So when the object is moving in SPACE the time is shortened compared to an object which is stationary. So the space - time unit is constant. If the movement is more ,the time shortens. If some on takes a watch in an ordinary plain and flies around the earth, then the watch similar to the one which is on the plain will run faster as the watch on plain time is shorter. Certainly at the ordinary speed , we do not have ability to perceive the difference but it is there and can be proved . The unit of time that we are used to see is hours and minutes and seconds and then micro and milliseconds etc. The unit of the time that was describes to be the SMALLEST that can be measured is called PLANCK SECOND and is defined as time it takes photon - a particle of light to travel PLANCK DISTANCE . So then came Planck unit and Planck constant for quantum theory etc. Certainly at a larger scale we have millions and billions and trillions etc. But in Indian mythology which was known or created we have much more time measurements than what has been thought out by science .We have both micro level time and macrolevel time measurement . I am amazed at the thought process of these measurements.
To start we have more than one system and there will be some variations in the numbers . So the smallest time in Hinduism is called TRUTI . This is the time it takes to TEAR A SOFT PETEL OF A LOTUS . So this is TRUTI . 100 Truiti make on LAV
30 LAV make 1 NIMESH
15 NIMESH make 1 KAASHTHAA(8 SECOND)
30 KAASHTHAA make 1 KSHAN 4 MINUTES)
6KSHAN make 1 GHADI (24 MINUTES)
2 GHADI make 1 MUHURT (48 MINUTES)
30 MUHURT make one DAY -24 HOURS
28 DAYS make 1 MONTH
2 MONTHS make 1 SEASON
3 SEASONS make 1 AYAN
2 AYAN make 1 YEAR
1 MONTH of Human is 1 PITAR DAY
360 HUMAN YEARS =1 DIVINE YEAR
12000 DIVINE YEARS =1 DIVINE YOG (YOOGA) =1 HUMAN MANVANTAR =4320000 YEARS
71 DIVINE YUGAS =1 MANVANTAR
14 MANVANTAR=1 DIVINE YUG=1 DAY OF BRAHMA =1 HUMAN KALP
4.32 BILLION YEARS =1 BRAHMA DAY
100 BRAHMA YEARS =2 PARARDH = 1 DAY OF VISHNU=311.04 TRILLION YEARS
1 MANVANTAR is the life span of one MANU
There are 14 MANUS and currently 7th MANU is ruling.
There are 4 YUGAS that we commonly know They are in proportion of 4:3:2:1
So SATVA TUGA IS 1728000, YEARS
TRETA YUGA IS 1296000 YEARS
DWAPAR YUGA IS 864000 YEARS KALI YUGA which is current YUGA is 432000 years.
1 MANVANTAR IS =306720,000 YEARS
There are 86400 seconds in a day but there are 17496 millions TRUTIES in a DAY
SO ONE TRUTI is 300th of a second .
SO NOW YOU KNOW THE SMALLEST AND THE LARGEST MEASUREMENT IN HUNDUISM
HAPPY NEW HUMAN YEAR 2021 !!
