Four such yugas (called Krita, Treta, Dvapara, and Kali, after the throws of an Indian game of dice) make up the mahayuga (“great yuga”), and 2, 000 mahayugas make up the basic cosmic cycle, the kalpa. The first yuga (Krita) was an age of perfection lasting 1, 728, 000 years. THE FOUR YUGAS (AGES) YUGA in Hindu philosophy is name of 'ERA' within a cycle of four ages. These are satya yug, treta yug, Dvaapar yug and kali yug. When the evil and decadence of the Kali Yuga reaches its zenith, Vishnu will have an incarnation (avatara) as Kalki the horse rider, to kill all the evil people and restore Dharma on earth, commencing a new Satya Yuga. According to Puranic sources, Krishna's departure marks the end of Dvapara Yuga and the start of Kali Yuga, which is dated to 17/18 February 3102 BCE. Based on a start year of 3102 BCE and a duration of 432, 000 years, Kali Yuga started roughly 5, 121 years ago with 426, 879 years remaining as of 2020 CE.
