Telugu years

The Telugu year is the calendar year for the Telugu speaking people of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states in India.

Each Yuga (Era) has a cycle of 60 years. Each year of Ugadi year has a specific name in Panchangam (Astronomical calendar) based on astrological influences and the name of the year would represent the character of that year.[1] The calendar includes 60 year names.[2] Every 60 years one name cycle completes and the names repeat in the next cycle. For example, the Telugu name for 1954 is "jaya", repeated in 2014. Ugadi is the Telugu new year festival that comes in the spring season (usually March or April). These years always change on Ugadi.

SignificanceEdit

In ancient days Yogis (saints) interact directly with god, according to that, they have given information related to our Indian Kalachakra(time-cycle) by considering Lord Shiva(Destroyer of bad), Lord Vishnu(Manager of good and bad), Lord Bharmha(Creator of things) and Goddess Shakthi (Energy) life's span. Below is the Indian Kalachakra (time-cycle):

60 years = Shashti Poorthi

4,32,000 years = Kali Yuga

8,64,000 years = Dvapara Yuga

12,96,000 years = Treta Yuga

17,28,000 years = Sat Yuga or Krta Yuga or Krita Yuga or Satya Yuga

Total 43,20,000 years = 1 Maha yuga (Total 4 Yuga)

71 Maha yugas = 1 Manvantara

14 Manvantara = 1 Kalpa (aeon)

2 Kalpas = Lord Bhrama 1 day

2000 Kalpas = Lord Bhrama's life span

Lord Bhrama's life span = Lord Vishnu 1 day
