Time and the Kalachakra

"Breath is Time".
This the Upanishads have stated in the siddhantas.
There was no split between astronomy, spiritual life, and people. The
purpose of astronomy was to relate the macrocosm to the microcosm.


the 16 Nityas along with the (36 consonant) letters which are the manifested 36 tattvas, and the Mantras which are formed by the letters, as also the Yantras are one with Time (Kala) -The real solar system is subject to fluctuations, perturbations and inequalities. These periods are based on the numbers 27, 54, 108, 360 and 21600, numbers which we find recurring again and again in tantrik texts. These measures of time are spiritual measures.



A respiration consists of two halves, an inhalation and an exhalation.
The meshing of time and astronomy and breath is the Kalachakra.

Mahakala = Brahma = Time.
The obstacles to Sun-Moon respiration, or equal breathing, are caused by conditioning.
Relating our own body to cosmology, Our earth centre, our physical or planetary body, is sustained by food. Our emotional centre is sustained by breath.
Our intellectual centre the Moon is sustained by impressions.

Speech is breath modulated by the physical in various ways depth of breathing, muscle tension, shape of mouth, shape of mental impressions. The measure is that 10 long syllables make 1 breath. The time taken to sense an impression are smaller subdivisions of time ending with the paramanu .

 

The goddess, or shakti, is the whole circle of the Zodiac,
Time, the Sun, Moon and Planets, the Constellations, Breath or Prana and Matrika

Breath
21600 = number of breaths day and night (= 24 hours)
10800 = solar, 10800 = lunar 1 breath = 4 seconds

Time

24 hours x 60 minutes = 1440 minutes
1440 minutes x 60 seconds = 86400 seconds 86400/21600 = 4 seconds = 1 breath
1 nadika of 24 minutes = 1440 seconds(=360 breaths)
1 solar year = 360 days = 8640 hours
1 solar month = 30 days = 720 hours
1 season = 60 days = 1440 hours
1 half-month = 15 days = 360 hours
One Chaturyuga = 1 kalpa/1000
10 long syllables = 1 Prana (breath = 4 seconds) 360 Pranas = 1 Nadika (=24 minutes)
60 Nadikas = 1 day
1 Chaturyuga = 4320000 solar years
A Yuga is divided into 4 parts:
Krtta Yuga = 1728000 solar years
Treta Yuga = 1296000 solar years
Dvapara Yuga = 864000 solar years
Kali Yuga = 432000 solar years
Each age has two twilights:
.

Krita Yuga

Dawn 144000
Day 1440000
Dusk 144000

Treta Yuga

Dawn 108000
Day 1080000
Dusk 108000

Dvapara Yuga

Dawn 72000
Day 720000
Dusk 72000

Kali Yuga

Dawn 36000
Day 360000
Dusk 36000

 

This means that one solar year = 1 day of the gods
One Kalpa (Aeon) = 1 day of Brahma
One Kalpa = 1 night of Brahma
Brahma's life = 100 years of these days = 864,000,000,000 divine years.
