‘Time Dilation’ mentioned in Dharmic Scriptures

According to the theory of relativity, time dilation is a difference in the elapsed time measured by two observers, either due to a velocity difference relative to each other, or by being differently situated relative to a gravitational field. As a result of the nature of spacetime, a clock that is moving relative to an observer will be measured to tick slower than a clock that is at rest in the observer’s own frame of reference. A clock that is under the influence of a stronger gravitational field than an observer’s will also be measured to tick slower than the observer’s own clock. (Source Wikipedia}


Srimad Bhagavad Gita:
SBG 8:17 By human calculation, one day of Brahma is equal to a thousand Yugas (millennia), and the night is also of the same duration. The wise who know this truth know about day and night.

The special theory of relativity of Albert Einstein’s results in time dilation for inertial systems.

Verses 9.3.30 – 32 from the Bhaagavata Purana, narrate about someone who went to the highest planetary system and stayed there for ’20 minutes’, but when he returned to earth, 116,640,000 years had passed by on earth. He found neither his friends and relatives nor his sons and grandsons. He could not even find a record of his family tree.

Srimad Bhaagavatam (Bhaagavata Puraana)
9:3:29 Taking his own daughter, Revati, Kakudmi went to Brahma in Brahmaloka, which is transcendental to the three modes of material nature, and inquired about a husband for her.

9:3:30: When Kakudmi arrived there, Brahma was engaged in hearing musical performances by the Gandharvas and had not a moment to talk with him. Therefore, Kakudmi waited, and at the end of the musical performances, he offered his obeisances to Brahma and thus submitted his long-standing desire.

9:3:31: After hearing his words, Brahma, who is most powerful, laughed loudly and said to Kakudmi: O King, all those whom you may have decided within the core of your heart to accept as your son-in-law have passed away in the course of time.

9:3:32: Twenty-seven chatur-yugas have already passed. Those upon whom you may have decided are now gone, and so are their sons, grandsons and other descendants. You cannot even hear about their names.

Now study the Nasadiya (pronounced naasadiya) Sukta from the Rig Veda, which is a sceptical inquiry into the creation.

An ideal Sanatana Dharmi (a Hindu), is one who is a true seeker. The Sanatana Dharma is the only scientific, rational, sensible, logical and credible way of life in which there are no commandments, Satan, messengers, agents, hell, heaven or a bearded jealous God sitting in the skies, who punishes people that don’t believe in him. Yet, due to the spiritual corruption that Sanatanis have undergone listening to the ridiculous stories told by missionaries and other marauders and usurpers, most Sanatana Dharmis ‘Hindus’ have completely lost the Dharmic God concept, and they have forced themselves into dark holes of ignorance and stupidity. Many do not even have any fundamental knowledge of the Divine Sanatana Dharma and the principle of Karma or Cause and Effect. It is for this reason that there still are Sanatanis who still believe that during challenging times in their lives, it is God that ‘tests’ them, or it is those planets out there that team up together and conspire to damage their love life, snatch their job away and create havoc in their life!


The Chariot Analogy01.png

Read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and go through the Ishavasya Upanishad as well as the Chariot Analogy from the Kat-Hopanishad and you will know that you are Divine. You will realise that The self in you is nothing but pure Divinity, the Self in you is Krishna and You give Him a form in order for you to be able to better visualise Him, meditate upon Him and also commune with Him.

SBG 12:05 Those whose minds are set on an unmanifested and impersonal Absolute Power face difficulties in reaching the goal. This is because people always identify with the body and when there is no perceptible form, it is difficult to perceive.

SBG 4:34 Acquire knowledge through reverence to teachers who have known the Truth, serve them and ask them questions until all your questions are answered. The wise who know the Truth will teach it to you.

SBG 4:35 After acquiring that knowledge, O Arjuna, you will not be deluded like this anymore and by that knowledge, you will see all beings in their entirety in you and also in Me.

SBG 6:31 He who is in union with Me and worships Me residing in all beings, becomes a Yogi and, whatever circumstances he may be in, resides in Me.


The delusion of the mind, caused by ignorance, leads it to inflate their ego and makes them feel separate from Divinity as well as from the rest of nature. Money spinning religious movements headed by babas add to the confusion by taking advantage of this stupidity and ignorance of the common man and propounding their own theories in order to keep people uninformed and unenlightened forever.

Read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita today and make your direct connection with the Divine Supreme Being Krishna. Understand the natural principle of Cause and Effect. Learn to design your life and Karmic journey the way you want them to be.

SBG 3:30 Renounce all your works completely in Me, have full knowledge of the Self and fix your mind on Me, don’t expect any benefits, be clear of arrogance and laziness and fight.

Jai Shri Krishna
