Thanks

Hailstones Melt , I was wondering about WHICH cycle was beginning. It seems we are at the end of a very long Kali Yuga (dark times) and end of the 13,000 year cycle. In "A Treatise Cosmic Fire" Alice Bailey lists all the different cycles and the Kali Yuga has many more than 13,000 years. PDF:

Here's a table from "Cosmic Fire" in markdown format.

| |Mortal Years|

|:-----------------------|-----------:|

|360 days of mortals make a year|1|

|Krita Yuga contains | 1,728,000|

|Treta Yuga contains | 1,296,000|

|Dwapara Yuga contains| 864,000|

|Kali Yuga contains | 432,000|

|The total of the said four Yugas constitute a Maha Yuga |4,320,000|

|Seventy-one of such Maha Yugas form the period of the reign of one Manu | 306,720,000|

|The reign of 14 Manus embraces the duration of 994 Maha Yugas, which is equal to| 4,294,080,000|

|Add Sandhis, i.e., intervals between the reign of each Manu, which amount to 6 Maha Yugas, equal to| 25,920,000|

|The total of these reigns and interregnums of 14 Manus, is 1,000 Maha Yugas, which constitute a Kalpa, i.e., one day of Brahma, equal to| 4,320,000,000|

|As Brahma's night is of equal duration, one day and night of Brahma will contain| 8,640,000,000|

|360 of such days and nights make one year of Brahma, equal to | 3,110,400,000,000|

|100 of such years constitute the whole period of Brahma's age, i.e., Maha Kalpa| 3,110,400,000,000|

So the Kali Yuga has 432,000 mortal years (earth orbits around the sun).
