There is an eternal play of time-cycle of 5000 years. This play is going on in between the Nature, souls and the Supreme Soul on this world stage. In this play, the soul goes through all the three stages – Sato, Rajo and Tamo. In the beginning, the souls reside beyond the sun-moon-stars, at their original abode – Sweet Silence Home.
Golden Age In the beginning of the world cycle, the golden-aged souls leaving their abode; incarnates into the elevated bodies, i.e. deities. The world is called garden of flowers then. There is a complete rule of peace and happiness at that time. The nature fulfills all the desires of humankind. The king as well as his subjects are pure and have good conduct.
Silver Age After the passage of 1250 years of Golden Age, the world enters into a New Age. Like Golden Age, in this age also, there is complete peace and prosperity, but with the change of time, there is some decline in the state of the soul.
Copper Age After spending 2500 years in joy and happiness, the souls have lost their true identity at this point of time and become subject to body-consciousness and vices such as sex-lust, anger etc. The Paradise of peace and prosperity ceases to exist and there starts the kingdom of sorrow and disquiet. In order to get liberation, the souls start devotion and at the same time, various religious fathers take birth and establish their respective religions.
Iron Age After the passage of 3750 years of the time cycle, the world reaches its extreme vicious state, i.e. Tamopradhan state. As the human beings forget their original state of soul-consciousness and consider themselves as bodies made of five elements, coupled with extremity of five vices, the human beings become devils and the world turns to hell. At the end of this age, the sorrows and disquiet have reached at their peak point.
Incarnation of Shiva Seeing such a miserable state of His children (souls), Supreme Soul Shiva leaving His abode reincarnates on this world at the end of Iron Age and reminds them of their original state, makes them pure and guides them back to their sweet original home, i.e. Sweet Silence Home.
Confluence Age In this auspicious Confluence Age of approximately 100 years, there is a communion of souls with their God Father Shiva. In this Age of such a short duration, the souls take the power from the Supreme Soul and regain its elevated state. Therefore, this age is of greater significance.
Rajyoga is a powerful medium that enables the soul to regain its lost powers. Rajyoga means connecting the soul’s eternal relationship with Almighty Supreme Soul Shiva so that the former also can inherit the powers and divine virtues from the latter. Thus, this Eternal World Drama of 5000 years comes to and end and another cycle gets repeated in the same manner.
