Now lets find out the age of our universe as per the vedas.Let us consider the age of the Brahma to be the age of the universe.Carbon generally forms four covalent bonds with other atoms in larger molecules.
(kär'bən) Symbol CA naturally abundant, nonmetallic element that occurs in all organic compounds and can be found in all known forms of life.
Diamonds and graphite are pure forms, and carbon is a major constituent of coal, petroleum, and natural gas.
Vedas say that before the creation of the universe Lord Vishnu is sleeping in the ocean of all causes.
His bed is a giant serpent with thousands of cobra like hoods. Brahma represents the universe which we all live in, and it is this Brahma who creates life forms. Vishnu is the personification of the eternal multiverse that exists forever without any beginning or end.
This is one number which no modern theory can even come anywhere near to it.
As we saw earlier a day of Brahma has 2000 Maha Yugas (day night).
By the way, in the trinity of Creator, Maintainer and Destroyer as mentioned in the vedas, Lord Vishnu is the maintainer. While Vishnu is asleep, a lotus sprouts of his navel (note that navel is symbolised as the root of creation! Brahma is the personification of our temporary physical universe that was created in the big bang.
Brahma is said to have been created from the navel (which is a single point) of Vishnu, described as a lotus blooming out of the navel, much like our big bang universe.
1 Mahayuga = 4,320,000 years 1 Manvantara = 71 Mahayugas 1 day of Brahma = 14 Manvantaras = 994 Mahayugas Now a small addition here, Vedas also say that before and after each Manvantara there is a gap equivalent to 4 Yugas (Not Maha Yugas).
