Do we believe in the four Yugas like Hindus?

Satya Yuga was 1.7 million years. Avg human life expectancy was 100,000 years.

Treta Yuga was 1.3 million years. Avg human life expectancy was 10,000 years.

Dvapara Yuga was 864,000 years. Avg human life expectancy was 1000 years.

Kali Yuga will be 432,000 years and the life expectancy will be 100 years, coming down to 20 years at the end of this yuga.

Modern humans have only existed for approx 200,000 years and generally lifespans are always increasing. So this information on Yugas is wrong.

Gianni Sant Singh Ji Maskeen basically said all of that is false we believe in the four yugs but not in that way. Maskeen Ji said that the yugs dont come in a linear fashion one after another but rather theyre all here at the same time depending on the state of mind of the humans that live in them for example although the majority of the world is in kalyug when your in the company of true sants that is satyug. Maskeen ji also said that at one time one yug is predominant over all others right now kalyug is dominant over all others and the time it takes for the dominant yug to change is roughly 2500 years not lakhs of years like hindus claim, now I dont remember the details(its been a while since I've heard the katha) but maskeen ji uses bhai gurdass jis varaan to prove this.

They also said that the four yugs can be used to to represent the stages of a human life: Satyug is the gestation period when the baby is in the womb and connected with god and desires nothing else, Tretyug is childhood when although the innocent child feels no lust it has a desire for power i.e greed for other childrens toys and a stubborn refusal to share with others, Dvaparyug is youth when a young works to earn a living and gives in to lust to create future generations and finally kalyug is old age when the fires of all the unfulfilled desires burn the mind and render him incapable of remembering god.

Again its been a while since I've heard the katha so I paraphrased alot of whats been said and left alot of things out

Science does not want to find god.It wants to find the opposite of god.

Science will never realize about yugas ever unless me or you inform them.

What do you mean we believe in the yugas? Like the traditional hindu view?

That is obviously false. I hope you don't believe in that.

Both interpretations are accepted, traditional yugas views are contextualized when reading gurbani dealing with historical aspects references within gurbani so traditional yuga aspect is needed and used rightly in that context and other interpertation of yugas being linear that is used when gurbani is talking about higher ultimate aspect of divinity- one non dual absolute reality- Ik0ngkar.

Both are needed and accepted in Gurmat in order to understand gurmat in its totality.

In Sri Dasam Granth, Guru Gobind Singh Ji maharaj states in Sampooran Ramayan that Ram Chander (in Treta Yuga) ruled his kingdom for 10,010 years.

ਦਸ ਸਹੰਸ੍ਰ ਦਸ ਬਰਖ ਪ੍ਰਮਾਨਾ ॥ ਰਾਜ ਕਰਾ ਪੁਰ ਅਉਧ ਨਿਧਾਨਾ ॥ ਤਬ ਲਉ ਕਾਲ ਦਸਾ ਨੀਅਰਾਈ ॥ ਰਘੁਬਰ ਸਿਰਿ ਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਡੰਕ ਬਜਾਈ ॥੮੩੪॥

Dasa Sahaansara Dasa Barakha Paramanaa ॥ Raaja Karaa Pura Aaudha Nidhaanaa ॥ Taba Lau Kaal Dasaa Neearaaeala ॥ Raghubara Siri Marita Daanka Bajaaeala ॥834॥

दस सहंस्र दस बरख प्रमाना ॥ राज करा पुर अउध निधाना ॥ तब लउ काल दसा नीअराई ॥ रघुबर सिरि म्रित डंक बजाई ॥८३४॥

Ram ruled in Avadphpuri for ten thousand and ten years, then according to time schedule, the death beat its drum.834.

Tell me this is not true. No human has ever lived this long. Humans have not been around for 2 million years.

Modern humans have only existed for 200,000 years. Lifespans are increasing not decreasing.

It depends on the spiritual rang of the kathavachak while doing katha.

There are yugs and in kalyug we see a portion of all

1. Linear Yugas/Ages
Satya Yuga was 1.7 million years. Avg human life expectancy was 100,000 years.
Treta Yuga was 1.3 million years. Avg human life expectancy was 10,000 years.
Dvapara Yuga was 864,000 years. Avg human life expectancy was 1000 years.
Kali Yuga will be 432,000 years and the life expectancy will be 100 years, coming down to 20 years at the end of this yuga.

1. Linear Yugas/Ages - Continued :

In Sri Dasam Granth, Guru Gobind Singh Ji maharaj states in Sampooran Ramayan that Ram Chander (in Treta Yuga) ruled his kingdom for 10,010 years.

ਦਸ ਸਹੰਸ੍ਰ ਦਸ ਬਰਖ ਪ੍ਰਮਾਨਾ ॥ ਰਾਜ ਕਰਾ ਪੁਰ ਅਉਧ ਨਿਧਾਨਾ ॥ ਤਬ ਲਉ ਕਾਲ ਦਸਾ ਨੀਅਰਾਈ ॥ ਰਘੁਬਰ ਸਿਰਿ ਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਡੰਕ ਬਜਾਈ ॥੮੩੪॥

Ram ruled in Avadphpuri for ten thousand and ten years, then according to time schedule, the death beat its drum.834.

1. Linear Yugs/Ages Continued:

we are now around 5,125 years into KalYug which means we have around 426,875 more years left.

Sometime in the near future a SatYug will come within KalYug which will last around 14,000 years.

2. The four features of the Yugs also run parallel and one is more dominant than the other:

-In SatYug, Satch is more prominent.

-In KalYug, Kaal is more prominent.

3. The four features also run in linear fashion in person's 4 life stages as Giani Sant Singh ji explains.

4. When a Sikh lives in the lotus feet of the Guru it is SatYug, when away it is KalYug for him/her.

Oh god. Humans have not been around for 4 million years! It is preposterous to think Ram ruled for 10,000 years!

This is the equivalent of Christians thinking the world is 6000 years old.
