Saptha Rishis Change Abhijit Nakshatra Astronomy Validates

The concept of Saptha Rishis is known to Hindus.

These are the seven Sages who are to be accorded the highest respect and their works are believed to be the most authentic for the Manvanthara, a Time Scale to Indian Philosophy.

In performing any Hindu rite the mention of the Saptha Rishis is mandatory.

They are the Patriarchs of the Vedic Religion.

For the present Manvantara, the list is,

Atri, Bhrigu, Kuthsa,Vasishta,Gauthama,Gauthama Angirasa.

There is a variation of this as well,

Bhrigu, Atri, Angirasa Vashista, Pulastya, Pulalaha and Kratu.

Sanatana Dharma states that these Rishis change for each Manvanthara.

Manvantara is the astronomical time within an aeon or Kalpa, a “day (day only) of Brahma”, like the present Śveta Vārāha Kalpa, where again 14Manvantaras add up to create one Kalpa.

Please read my post on Manvantara.

Seventh, the present Manvantara.

Kashyapa, Atri, Vashista, Vishvamitra, Gautama, Jamadagni and Bharadvaja.

* there is a differnce in the name of the Rishis for the present Manvantara.

Hindu scriptures declare that the Saptha Rishis change as well as The Pole Star, The Dhruva Nakshatra.

This is validated by Modern Atronomy.

Lord Krishna in The Bhagavad Gita says.


‘I am Arjuna among Pandava and Abhijit among Nakshatras’.

Abhijit is the unseen Nakshatra in Hinduism , the twenty-eighth.


Abhijit is the Sanskrit name for Vega, the brightest star in the northern constellation of Lyra.

Abhijit means “Victorious” or “the One who cannot be defeated”.

This also changes for Manvantaras.


“Once Pluto moved into 10 degrees of Capricorn, it came within orb of Vega, another of astrology’s famous fixed stars.

Vega is one of the brightest stars in the sky – the 5th brightest in the whole of the sky. Back around 12,000 BCE, it was Earth’s pole star. And such cycles being what they are, it will be Earth’s pole star yet again – just prior to the year 14,000 CE…


Vega was Pole Star 12000 BC.jpg

Earth procession of precessional pole stars (Note: all the years in this diagram have been rounded off to make it something south of a migraine to create.)

from an Earthly ‘pole pointer perspective’ means Planet Earth is currently pointed almost as ‘away’ from Vega as Earth will ever get. If a planet can ‘look away’ from something, Earth has another 800+ years to go, and it will be ‘pointed’ in as opposite a direction as it can get from Vega. And that’s a rather interesting notion, considering that the astrological Vega is known to be a charismatic position.”

Pulaha β UMa Merak
Pulastya γ UMa Phecda
Atri δ UMa Megrez
Angiras ε UMa Alioth
Vashista ζ UMa Mizar

It may be noted that Vasishta was the Kula Guru of Dasaratha and Lord Rama and Ram’s date is around 5000  BC.

Calculation of Time by Hinduism

Time The Hindu Way.

A Kalpa is 12 hours of Brahma. 2 kalpas make a day and a night of Brahma.


He lives for 100 years on this time scale.
How many Mahayugas or Chaturyugas( Four) are there in a Kalpa?
There are 1000 or 1008, Mahayugas in a Kalpa Mahayugas in a Kalpa.


84 Chaturyugas is an hour of Brahma.


There are 14 Manvantaras in a Kalpa.


Check my post on this.( Link provided at the end of this post)


A Manu or an Indra lives for 1 Manvantara.


A Manvanatara is a 100 years of Indra.

There are 72 Chaturyugas to a Manvantara.

The cycle of Kalpas, beginning with Brähma-kalpa and ending with Pädma-kalpa, is repeated a thousand times, Cyclic,non- Linear


The present kalpa is called Sveta-varäha-kalpa.
The Bhagavatam speaks of 30 kalpa names, one for each day of his month.


This list does not match the list in the Vayu Purana.

The Thirty kalpas of Brahma ,

Thus Kalpa is a simple multiple of this figure.

By this reckoning the earth is about 4.32 Billion Years old.

Many Ved Vyasas Contradiction?

Though we know Vyasa as the one who gave us the Vedas and The Puranas, there are different Vyasas for different Manvantaras(for Manvantara Details read my post ).

Veda means Prose.

Veda Vyasa means ‘ one who has formed the Vedas into different parts.

In the Vaivasvatha Manvanthara Vedas were formed into divisions twenty eight times.

In the first Dwapara, Lord Brahma divided the Vedas and became the First Vyasa.(Vyasa, according to the Vishnu Purana, is indicative of a position).

The Next Vyasas are.


Sukrachariar, Asura Guru,

Bruhaspathi, Deva Guru,

Surya,The Sun God,

Yama, The Lord of Deth,

Indra, the chief of Heaven,












In the next six Dwaparas,the Vyasa are,

Bharatwajar(again, possible  this is also an indicative name)









Krishnadwaipayana, for the present-Dweedeeya Paraartham,Swetha Varaaha Kalpam,Vaivastha Manvantham,,Kaliyuga,Prathamapdaham.

We are now in the Seventh Manvantara,Vaivastha Manvantara.

This list is according to Sri Vishnu Purana.

Brahmanda Pura’s list of Vyasas differ.

Lord Siva is reported to have divulged the list of Vyasas to Lord Brahma.

The list.













Dharma Narayana,

Sura Rakshana,














Krishna Dwaipayana.

However a close look at the list will reveal that these Vyasas are not diferent from the Vishnu Purana list because the names here, as in all Hinduism, are indicative of positions, attributes that may be different.

For example, Mruthyu for Yama,Savitha for Surya,Sura Rakshana for Indra….

In essence the list tallies.


Astrophysics, Hinduism

Is The Present ‘Manusmrti’ Meant for Us Manu Facts

Manu is the son of Brahma.

Time, Hindu Concept.

Hindu Concept of Time.

One Manu rules one Manvantara.

There are 14 Manus, each ruling one Manvantara.

One Manvantara lasts  (‘431,8000 *  4(one Cycle of Chatur Yuga)   =   17,27 2000 Years *71 Cycles )= 1226312000 Years.

We are in the Swetavaraha Kalpa.

The Name of the Manu for this Svetavaraha kalpa is  Vaivasvata and The Manvantara is Vaivasvatham.

The Manusmriti we talk abut,  one is not sure, belongs to this Vaivasvata Manu.

Or  are we talking about the first Manu, Swayam bhuba Manu’s Rules?

The information in the Internet is not clear

Will some one clarify?
