INTRODUCTION

60 Nadis go to make one Vinadi. 60 Vinadis or 3,600 Nadis are equivalent to 1 Nazhigai. 60 Nazhigais or 216,000 Nadis make one day. 360 days make one year. Kali Yuga consists of 4,32,000 such years. Dwapara Yuga consists of 8,64,000 years. Treta Yuga consists of 12,96,000 years and Krita Yuga consists of 17,28,000 years. A Chatur Yuga or Maha Yuga consists of 43,20,000 years. One Thousand Maha Yugas are equal to 1 Kalpa or a day of Brahma.

71 Maha Yugas are equal to one Manvantara and '14 Manvantara are equal to one day of Brahma without the Sandhis.  But one full day of Brahma or a Kalpa is made up of 14 x 71 Maha Yugas plus the evening and morning Sandhis of 6 Maha Yugas, or a total of 1000 Maha Yugas, or in other words 1000 x 43,20,000 or 43,20,000,000 years. 360 such day's made one Brahmic year.
