CALCULATION AND MANUVANTAR
genealogy in Sumerian King list is atleast 2900 B.C. old and the
Sumerian King List is c. 2112 – 2004 BC years old.
oldest book of Vedic Arya is Rig Ved which is said to be between
1500 - 1200 BC. This shows that between Sumerian King List and
Rig Ved there is a gap of 584 - 837 BC years.
to some people, the Purans were written between 5th and 7th BC
while some say that the oldest Puran which is Matsya Puran was
written between 200 - 500 CE.
descendants of Krishna Dwaipayan (Ved Vyas) who lived in Iran
tried to explain concept of time through calculation of Manuvantar.
The original time calculation we can find in the Mesopotamian
(Iraq) branch of Arya's whose names are mentioned in Sumerian
there is a huge time gap between Sumerian King List and Purans
it is possible that the descendants of Krishna Dwaipayan (Ved
Vyas) possibly did not know the names of Sumerian Kings and they
only had calculations with them, hence they changed the names,
created a story and wrote in it what they remembered. Brahma was
used as a title for Brahmins.
Veli Albert Kallio in his research has connected ancient Sumerian
calculation with calculation given in Manuvantar which is given
below in two parts.
