Dasakam: 8 --Mahapralaya or The Great Deluge


Before creation took place  we had  a concept of TIME,as it is computed in our Puranas.360 human years constitute one year for the Gods(Divine year or "Divya Varsha").12,000 such divine years form a "Chatur Yuga"or "Maha Yuga"  A "Chatur Yuga" or "Mahayuga"consists of four Yugas (ages) put together. The four yugas are:Krita Yuga--4800 divine years,Treta Yuga--3600 divine years,Dwapara Yuga--2400 divine years andKali Yuga--1200 divine years.Total       = 12,000 divine years with 43,20,000 human years.  71 such Maha Yugas/Chatur Yugas make a "MANVANTARA".
14 such Manvantaras are clubbed together to form a "KALPA"We are today living in the  seventh Manvantara,known as"Vaivaswata Manvantara".The 14 Manvantaras that go into the makingof a Kalpa constitute just one day for Brahma. Brahma is our mythological God of creation. At the end of his day, Brahma goes to sleep during his night.His night extends for the same period as his day,i.e. the same time for a Kalpa.During this night, there is no 'creation' activity and it is called a "Naimittika Pralaya. Brahma gets up again for his next day or Kalpa. 360 such days or Kalpas of Brahma make one year for him.In this manner a Brahma lives for his 100 years.


Before Creation started, there was Mahapralaya or the Great Deluge. During this period, there was no Universe. At the end of the Pralaya lasting for 100 years of Brahma,there was a will for Creation.

Dasakam: 008 -- Shlokam: 01
एवं तावत् प्राकृतप्रक्षयान्ते
ब्राह्मे कल्पे ह्यादिमे लब्धजन्मा ।
ब्रह्मा भूयस्त्वत्त एवाप्य वेदान्
सृष्टिं चक्रे पूर्वकल्पोपमानाम् ॥१॥


evaM taavatpraakR^ita prakshayaante
braahme kalpe hyaadime labdhajanmaa |
brahmaa bhuuyastvatta evaapya vedaan
sR^iShTiM chakre puurvakalpOpamaanaam

At the end of the Prakrit Pralaya, in the first Kalpa which is known as Braahma Kalpa, Brahmaa came into existence. He got the knowledge of the Vedas from Thee alone and began creation in the same way as in the previous Kalpas.

Dasakam: 008 -- Shlokam: 02
सोऽयं चतुर्युगसहस्रमितान्यहानि
तावन्मिताश्च रजनीर्बहुशो निनाय ।
निद्रात्यसौ त्वयि निलीय समं स्वसृष्टै-
र्नैमित्तिकप्रलयमाहुरतोऽस्य रात्रिम् ॥२॥


sO(a)yaM chaturyuga sahasramitaanyahaani
taavanmitaashcha rajaniirbahushO ninaaya |
nidraatyasau tvayi niliiya samaM svasR^iShTai
rnaimittikapralayamaahuratO(a)sya raatrim ||
One thousand Chaturyugaas make one day for this Brahma, and an equal duration is his night. During his day time he creates and at night he sleeps, Hence his night is known as Naimittika Pralaya when along with his creation he merges in Thee. Thus he spent many days and nights.


Dasakam: 008 -- Shlokam: 03
अस्मादृशां पुनरहर्मुखकृत्यतुल्यां
सृष्टिं करोत्यनुदिनं स भवत्प्रसादात् ।
प्राग्ब्राह्मकल्पजनुषां च परायुषां तु
सुप्तप्रबोधनसमास्ति तदाऽपि सृष्टि: ॥३॥

praagbraahmakalpa januShaaM cha paraayuShaaM tu

As each day begins, with Thy blessing Brahma goes on with the act of creation, as we perform our daily rituals at dawn. For those who were born before the Braahma Kalpa also wake up at the dawn of the new Kalpa after a long night's sleep.

पञ्चाशदब्दमधुना स्ववयोर्धरूप-

O Infinite Being! Brahmaa ruling over the present cycle has now completed fifty years of his life,which is known as one paraardha. I shall now narrate Thy sportive activities during the previous night of Brahma and at the beginning of the next morning of the present paraardha. .(Our 1000x4 yugas = 1 day of Brahma Kalpa, and similarly, our 1000x4 yugas = 1 nightof Brahma Kalpa. Our 2000x4 yugas =1 day + 1 night of Brahma. 360 days (includingnights) of Brahma = 1 year of Brahma. 100 years of Brahma = Brahma's full age whichis the duration of the great deluge also.)

Dasakam: 008 -- Shlokam: 05

Then, at the beginning of the Pralaya.
