Swami Sri Yukteswar

Our sun has a twin star

Swami Sri Yukteswar made two startling predictions in 1894, comming from ancient Indian writings in his book ‘the Holy Science : “matter will be found to be energy” and “our sun has a twin star*. Einstein proved the first prediction true in 1905 and over the course of the last century it has been found that two out of every three stars is part of a binary system’.

Sri Yukteswar writes that as well as the daily rotation of the Earth on its axis and yearly journey around the sun, the sun itself orbits another star,
with a period of about 24,000 years. The rotation of the earth relative to the stars we see (the zodiac in astrological terms) is called the precession of the
equinoxes. Modern science agrees with the period yet offers an alternate explanation: that of the earth’s wobble on its axis.

Many ancient sites are constructed with elements demonstrating very sophisticated astronomical knowledge. For example, the orientation of the shafts on certain ancient pyramids can be read as date-stamps.

Sri Yukteswar described the orbit, as moving the earth in an ascending arc of 12,000 years, raising the consciousness of man, and then a falling arc of 12,000 years, lowering it, as the earth approaches and then recedes from a galactic center called vishnunabhi.
Bach arc is called a Daiba Yuga or Blectric Cycle. One day of Brahma is the time taken for one thousand cycles of Daibas. A day of Brahama is followed by the night of Brahma. The Earth is many days and nights of Brahma
old.

The Greeks and many other ancient cultures (for example: Egyptians, Persians, Sumerians, Aztecs, Hopi, Celts and Norse) shared this idea of the ages of man.
The Greeks called the phenomenon the Great Year. The Hindu ages or Yugas are summarized below, with their Greek equivalents. Like all things in nature, the transitions are gradual, with a Sandhi or transition.
