Here below are some details about the documentary.
The documentary 'The Great Year' aptly demonstrating the rise and fall of consciousness with time. The
concepts of this video were produced by Binary research institute based on Swami Sri Yukteswar's theory of Yuga
The Great Year documentary video summarizes the following:
Researchers and historians have found evidence that there have been civilizations in the past far
advanced than us.
Archaeologists uncovered ancient ruins across the world, indicating that human evolution rises
and falls in a cycle.
Various civilizations across the world recognized this consciousness cycle and divided them into
4 parts: Iron age, Bronze Age, Silver Age and Golden Age. Hindus called them Yugas - Kali Yuga, Dwapara
Yuga, Treta Yuga and Satya Yuga.
Sri Yukteswar explained the Yuga cycle of 24000 years around hundred years back, (Read
Sri Yukteswar Yuga theory at minsobooks) where he
explained that our sun takes another sun as a dual and revolves around it forming a cycle of
The present science has not fully agreed on dual sun system. A binary solar system means that the
speed is different at different parts of the cycle. As the planets come nearer the speed increases. If
the speed is constant, the grand cycle should take 26000 as against 24000 years.
Though there is no conclusive evidence as yet, the present scientific and archeological
observations are inline with Sri Yukteswar's theory of a larger consciousness cycle.
