Lord Rama’s Death Precedes Krishna’s By 200 Years!

Interesting observation ,I found, in ancient voice.

Yugas of Hindus.
The concept of Time, Yugas

All of us know that the Ramayana took place in Treta Yuga while Lord Krishna lived in the Dwapara Yuga, which was after 8.64,000 years after Treta Yuga .

Yet cross indexing the various Purans and the Astrological data supported by actual Astronomical phenomena like Rama‘s Birth chart,Eclipses during Ramayana and Mahabharata  forces one to the conclusion that Lord Rama’s Death preceded Lord Krishna’s  only by 200 years.

Time, Hinduism's Concept.
Time Scale, Hinduism

This, I think, is not a contradiction .

The reason is that for the Hindus the Time is Cyclic , not linear.(read my post on this under Astrophysics)

That Time is Cyclic is being proved to-day by Astrophysics and Quantum Theory.(refer my posts under Astrophysics).

To put it simply events, Ramayana and Mahabharata not excluded happened , happen and will happen all at the same time,albeit at different planes of existence(read my posts under Science, Astrophysics,Hinduism- Multiverses).

Science is veering down to this view now.

And Astronomical events keep recurring at fixed time scales.

Therefore, this seeming contradiction in the Dates of Ramayana and Mahabharata.

  1. Interestingly enough, the death of Rama precedes the death of Krishna by 200 years, if we consider that Rama died at the age of 70 and Krishna at the age of 80. Not a normal age of death, if we consider that many ancient men like Bhishma (lived close to 95 to 105 years) and Vyasa (lived around 120 years) were long lived. This 200 years is also the duration of the Dwapara Yuga.
  2. Arjuna‘s grandfather’s grandfather viz. Pratipa was 20 years old when Rama died.
  3. Nala lived in Kali Yuga and was a contemporary of Arjuna‘s grandson’s great-grandson Aswamedhadatta.
  4. Kalmashapada (Saudasa) was a contemporary of Rama’s sons Lava and Kusha.
  5. Anaranya was a contemporary of Rama’s grandfather Aja
  6. Hiranya Kasipu and the first Indra were contemporaries.
  7. Prahlada and Vaivaswata Manu were contemporaries.
  8. Pururavas and the great Daitya king Mahabali were contemporaries.
  9. Vitahavya and Divodasa of the Ikshwaku line and Bharata of Puru line were contemporaries. They ruled along with Avikshit whose birth marks the beginning of Treta Yuga.
  10. Pratarddana of Ikshwaku line and Bhumanyu of Bharata line were contemporaries
  11. Sagara of Ikshwaku line and Suhotra of Bharata line were contemporaries
  12. Dilipa of Ikshwaku line and Hasti of Bharata’s line who founded the city of Hastinapura were contemporaries
  13. Ikshwaku king Raghu and Bhagiratha were contemporaries.
  14. Tapati, the wife of Samvarana (of Bharata line) probably married the daughter of an Ikshwaku king (described as Surya) in the south who was a contemporary of Raghu ruling at Ayodhya. Samvarana’s son was the famous Kuru the founder of Kuru dynasty.
  15. The Ikshwaku kings Aja and Muchukunda were contemporaries
  16. King Kuru who established his rule at Kurukshetra was a contemporary of Rama’s grandfather Aja
  17. The Kurukshetra war hero Vrihadvala and his father Suvala, brother Sakuni and sister Gandhari were all descendants of Rama’s brother Bharata.
  18. Rituparna, the friend of Nala was a descendant of Rama or his brothers
  19. Nala (and his brother Pushkara) was a descendant of Krishna
  20. Kali was a descendant of Sakuni
  21. Karkotaka the enemy-turned-friend of Nala was a descendant of Takshaka who killed Arjuna’s grandson Parikshit
  22. Vaisampayana narrated ‘Bharata’ to Janamejaya 75 years after Sanjaya narrated ‘Jaya’ to Dhritarashtra.
  23. Ugrasrava Sauti narrated Mahabharata to Saunaka, 55 years after Vaisampayana narrated ‘Bharata’ to Janamejaya
  24. The crucial formative period of Mahabharata was thus 130 years. It grew even after that with additions to Santi Parva, Anusasana Parva and Vana Parva and also with minor modifications and additions to other Parvas as well.
  25. The same Valmiki, who was an elder contemporary of Rama authored the first two versions of Ramayana. The first version was completed soon after Rama returned to Ayodhya after killing Ravana. The second version was created after Sita was banished from Ayodhya and reached Valmiki’s hermitage. The third version was created after the death of Rama, probably by some descendant of the original Valmiki. Ramayana underwent several modifications which continued even after Mahabharata grew into Sauti-Saunaka dialog.

  1. You have a very beautiful blog. One of its kind. Being a Hindu I find your posts very interesting.
    However, it would be nice if you could add links to the other posts in related blogs. You talked about “read my posts on Astrophysics” but the link was missing. It would be easy to reach other related posts this way.
    Thank you!


    • Thank you.

      I have quoted the the Category to search for in my blog for related posts.
      One may find the Category list in my posts and read as there re numerous posts.

      The reason is that if I provide too many links the Page will not load fast.

      this would inconvenience the Readers.
      I shall keep your point in mind, as it is very relevant and see how to resolve this issue.


    • Mr.Pradeep Singh. The Import of this article is Time is circular according to Hinduism.only this theory can accommodate the seeming anachronisms in Hinduism,.
      For instance, Rama being mentioned in the Vedas in the form of Ramarahasyapanishad,Vasudeva Upanishad,and Rama and Krishna performing rituals mentioned in the Vedas.I have posted articles on the tool dating dating Ramayana and Mahabharata and proved their dates.Yet the present dates arrived at for these two epics do not support the Treta Yuga of version.And he Astronomical Phenomena of Eclipses occur in cycles.Any information to the contrary may be sen to me for Publishing.My posts are to provide facts from reliable sources, even though they appear contradictory. which may not be so.it is our limited understanding of these issues.I am confident the answers will come by the grace of Hanuman.


  2. Exemplary work sir!! May Lord Vasudeva bless you with a long life. Please keep up this work so we benefit from your research


  3. Very nice writeup and blog. Exemplary work. Its just hard to accept that the entire linked-article’s conclusion rests on the idea that a Manvantara has been reduced from 306 million years to just 1000.


  4. I want to know more about how they lived with such long life and came to know that their height were also much more then current avg life n height. I am a firm believer and these questions keep coming in mind.
    Dont we have any knowledge left from the past regarding all this?


      • Still I could not understand how 8.64,000 years is equal to 200 years – can you elaborate it?raamsethu which described as was built by ram is authenticated by scientists of 7000 years of age. schlors are saying that kali yuga started 3000 years BC,and krishna left this planet just before that.all these things are happening in the same good earthen physical entity.why should we apply astrophyscs instead of simle physics?The statement of ram and krishna have 200 years difference and The statement about those yugas differ by 8.64,000 are definitely contardictory and confusing!
