Harish: 1) Namaste swamiji! Jaise aap kehte ho ki gyaan kisi ke diye bina nahi aata, usi taraha maine kahi padha hai ki mukti 36,000 times 1 cycle of universe hoti hai. Phir ye kaise pata chala? Kaunsa ved mantras hai jo aisa kehta hai?
2) This question is again related as above that how rishi/muni came to know about yuga time period ie about till 4,32,00,00,000 ie 432 million? I mean which Ved mantras tell about this much period? I need to know this both swamiji. Please tell atleast which ved mantras if translation is not possible?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. In this connection, Mundokupnishad Shloka 3/2/6 states:-
“Te Brahamloke ha prantkaale pramritat parimuchyanti sarve” which shows the period of salvation i.e., 36,000 cycles of final destruction.
Rishi-Munis are mantradrishta i.e., they after studying Vedas and doing Yajyen with ved mantras, name jaap of God and after doing hard practice of Ashtang Yoga, attain Samadhi and in Samadhi, they see all the mantras and get knowledge.
