Publisher's Summary

Today's view of history cannot account for ancient anomalies, such as the Pyramids and advanced knowledge contained in India's 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 - the 24,000-year yuga cycle.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Life changing insight

This is fascinating and for me, rings true. As if remembering a distant past. This really puts life into perspective.

Fascinating

The book has content that cannot be verified empirically but it is fantastic and fascinating surely. If you are familiar with Eastern spiritual concepts the contents of this book may not come as a surprise. Frankly, they sound intuitive deep down no matter how strange they sound to our ears. A lot of religious philosophy would actually tie neatly into it. Keep an open heart and you might actually come out a little more sceptical about the modern “obvious” knowledge.

Logical and Concise.

This is the first book that actually is focused and infinitely understandable in its attempt to clarify many mysteries and concepts from past ages. Brilliantly written. A must for anyone interested in spirituality and religion and who has an interest in many of the unexplained mysteries from the past.

Advance re-arrange of humanity frameworks

Comming from a science background and a Catholic Family I have pass the last 10 years trying to let go limiting beliefs that limitate our opportunity to perceive beyond our senses. I want to Yale the authors for the approach, that resonates with muy personal development experience and invite others to hear beyond the limitations of what they know or have been raised to believe

Excellent book but one slight problem

This book is great and should be regular reading for everyone, but I am about to step on some toes in this review. I have no qualms with the yugas mind you those are true compared to the idea Einstein stole then manipulated into a wrong equation from James clerk Maxwell and Max von laue. Maxwell is very difficult to understand for most, sadly I am still unfamiliar with Laue but einstein got lost trying to understand Maxwell. Anyone who knows Electricity knows that due to the errant Einstein equation electricity and electrical lines of force shouldn't exist but obviously they do and they are engineerable and have practical applications. This theory undermines Sri Yukteswar Giri and his statement of the universe being made up of fine particles and electricities because according to Einstein electricity doesn't exist which anyone who works in the electrical field knows is a farse beyond reproach. I hope the authors are looking more closely at electricity and electrical theory and actions within electricity that do not have an explanation to how it works. We as human being will find the answers that have eluded us, because those who idolize Einstein have and are following his errant equation are not thinking clearly but are lost thinking to deeply while leading us down the wrong path. Read J.J. Thompson's works, anything you can find on Ernst Alexanderson, anything and everything Charles Proteus Steinmetz has done and finally Eric P Dollard. Tesla is definitely in the mix and we need to follow his example especially pertaining to experimentation and not getting lost in mathematical equations that have nothing to do with the Natural world and the more we don't consider ourselves as part of the Natural world the farther we will stray from truth of reality. This book is great when listening to the Yugas and historical significance is beyond the scope we can appreciate currently the consuming capitalist society we live in is exactly the opposite to how we should be living. I have read this book several times now and still consider it a must read for everyone especially pertaining to the Yugas.

Why have I not heard of these before?!

I guess I just wasn't ready for them. It's hard to begin, I have read and researched my entire life for answers to the anomalies that our human history has presented, something that could explain them. This book does that. From horse and buggy to a man on the moon in less than 70 years. What happened? Yet, the better question is "What is happening?". Ancient archeology has presented finds that even with today's highly technical and industrialized society, science can't quite explain. From Puma Punko, showing evidence of machined stone blocks as heavy as 150 tons, to the massive stone blocks found in the Middle East, some over 1000 tons, moved by so called primitive societies, our science fails to truly understand how and why they were not only created but moved. This book is superbly narrated by Paul Brion who simply put did an outstanding job. Easy to listen too and follow, I just never got tired of hearing his voice. Unlike other narrators I have listened to, he was perfect for the task. The information presented really does tie up many of the loose ends that contemporary science has not been able to adequately explain. With that said, it will be very difficult at this point of the game to "Prove" that they are truth. Maybe in another 100 years as we enter fully into Treta Yuga they will. However, because of my own personal lifetime of searching for answers, sincerely, with an open mind, I can say nothing presented in these Yugas can be dismissed. If anything, they do address many of these anomalies that have yet to be completely understood by researchers of today. Some so intriguing that they have even been theorized to be creations of off world intelligence. The Yugas finally gives me a different perspective to contemplate and one that very well could be true. From the physical evidence and the changes in the collective consciousness of humans, The Yugas seem to be able to explain the evolution and devolution of societies. I found the explanations in the book to be very compelling. Although, someone much more intelligent than me, well versed in ancient history, may possibly question when the downturns and upturns happened in societies, in relation to when the different Yugas end and then a new one begins. My intuition tells me they are on to something and it gives me hope for humankind's future. There always is a larger picture.

Fabulous Reading!

This book was absolutely fabulous to read! It goes not only with historical information but scientific information as well. At the beginning of this book I wasn't sure I would be able to grasp the concepts but it was so nicely done that it's actually encouraged me to read more into the subject matter. 10/10 would absolutely recommend if you have any interest in the subject matter.

Most lucid explanation of the Yugas I’ve read

I’ve always been interested in theories of ancient civilisations but whenever I have come across the Yuga concept it’s always seemed Hazy and something that does not really describe the historical record. This book turns this on its head with a brilliantly lucid explanation of the Yugas, their causes and potential effects on human history. After the initial explanation the authors then go through mans recent timeline and re interpret it with this perspective. It’s well researched and shows how some of the greatest anomolies in the archeological record could be explained. It also looks at a range of ancient philosophies from this perspective in a way that is quite mind blowing. Anyway if you want to understand the Yugas this book explains them in a down to earth way and shows them as a credible alternative explanation for mans development over the last 12 thousand years. If you have ever wondered about this stuff I’d really recommend it!

Trash

Don't waist your money on this rubbish. All Selbie & Kyiananda ( bad psedonyms say much), have done is to sift through genuine ancient & truly revered texts, pulled out the bits fit for the Big Mac audience anf farmed it out as their's. Like a big mac, it's tastless, overpriced junk. RN
