Panchorath Yuga has been described in the sacred vedas of great Mamaidev- a great philosopher and future predictor born in 11th century. Pachorath yug is synonymus word of Satyug of hindu mythology. Maheshwari meghwar community of kutch, Gujarat and Sindh,Pakistan are much aware about this word.
According to hindu mythology, and some other religion beliefs, there are four yug cycle which are chronologically known as Satya yuga (golden Age), Treta yuga (silver age), Dwapara yuga (bronze age)and Kali yuga (iron age). When, kali yug completes, the new yug called sat yug (second cycle of four yug)will start.
When new cycle will come, the sat yug of second cycle will be known as panchorath yug. there are certain reasons also as to why this yug or age will be known as panchorath yug.
- As per bhavishya puran, the panch pandava will get birth and assist lord kalki (forthcoming incarnation of supreme lord who is also awaited one according to all the religion)in the final war to remove darkness and change of yug (age) cycle.
- The another reason for name is, this yug will be fifth (panch)yug and will be of rath (chariot) yug after technology yug (kali yug) when kings will rule the earth and they use chariot in war.
- some scholar believes that elected assembly (panchayati raj) would lead the next yug to be known as panchorath yug.
- It may be possible that the next yug will integrates all above characteristics and hence it would be known as panchorath yug.
According to mythology and history, when age completes, it leads to judgement day when lord incarnates on the earth and establish rule (dharma) on the earth. It is also believed that forthcomingjudgement day leads to great darkness and lord will remove darkness on the earth. According to many religious reference, darkness would prevail due to comet and it will demolish the science and technology on the earth. after demolition, it would be compulsion to use chariot. It is also mentioned in the Kalki Purana and bhavishya purana that, when lord kalki (awaited one)will take incarnation, he will come on white horse with great sword in his hand. It is logically understood that the next yug (age) will remove all science and technology. It is strongly believed that this fifth (pancho) yug (age) will be known as panchorath yug because of chariot.
As per the translation of sacred vedas of Mamaidev, it is believed that the Kaliyug will be finished in 2076 AD and panchorath yug will start.
