The current explanation of history cannot explain ancient anomalies, such as the Pyramids and advanced scientific and mathematical knowledge contained in India's hoary Vedas - but in 1894 an Indian sage gave us an explanation not only for our hidden past, but for the trends of today and for our future enlightenment - a 24,000 year cycle of human development.
The Yugas reveal:
- advanced knowledge and higher civilisations in the ancient past
- evolving consciousness and human potential through the yugas - mental telepathy, overcoming time and space
- present trends in our age of energy
- man's enlightened future - paradise on earth
The concept of the yugas is critically important for a clear understanding of humankind's ancient past, our potential future, and the way the larger cosmic environment influences humanity's changing consciousness.a The conventional mainstream view of an overall linear progression in human history is no longer tenable; it is now clear that the ancients of 10,000 to 15,000 years ago were not primitives and we have much to learn from them.a Based on the teachings of Sri Yukteswar, The Yugas by Joseph Selbie and David Steinmetz provides a perceptive analysis of history from the height of the last Satya Yuga (Spiritual Age) of circa 11,500 B.C. to our present age.
Just as importantly, the authors discuss trends and developments that we may anticipate over the next 10,000 years as the cycle of the yugas comes full circle. The Yugas integrates and synthesizes disparate facts and apparent anomalies that are often ignored.
If you're one of the people who has been asking yourself, "What's going on these days?" and not finding an answer that resonates with you, this is a book you will want to read and study. Based on the teachings of Sri Yukteswar and Paramhansa Yogananda, the book explains about the Yugas or ages the planet goes through every 24,000 years. Not only does the book provide compelling evidence of the veracity of these cycles, it goes much further by telling us about our possible future cycles and how we and planet can be much different than we are today. The Yugas is comforting by giving meaning to today's events and it is intriguing by putting the world into a more easily understood evolutionary picture. This is a don't miss read for anyone who wants a deeper understanding and appreciation of our past, present, and future. A great gift for anyone on a spiritual path and for those who love history. -Krysta Gibson, New Spirit journal; December, 2011
