As devotees and followers of the Vedic path, we already accept the premise that Lord Krishna appeared 5,000 years ago and spoke the Bhagavad-gita in the Mahabharata war.
The Greek Ambassador Megasthenes has recorded that 138 generations had passed between Krishna and Chandragupta Maurya (300 BC).
Taking 20 years per generation, 138 generations means that 2760 years have elapsed between date of Mahabharata War and Chandragupta Maurya.
This is another point that has generated many opinions, and it is almost impossible to get an agreed concensus on this matter, but is now much clearer than ever with more recent research and findings.
So let us take a look at a few ideas from at least one angle of research on this topic. Narahari Achar, a physicist from the University of Memphis, clearly showed with astronomical analysis that the Mahabharata war took place in 3067 BCE.
C., then come other Ved’s, Mahaveer Jain is born, then Gautam Buddha lives around 585 B. are written and the thought contained therein is well-absorbed among the Hindu minds. Some say that the Ramayan follows Mahabharat and some opine otherwise. Sanskrit epics were academically attacked occasion- ally – an attempt to disprove the authenticity of the annals noted therein. In this way I prepared a vertical column of the years when the Saturn was in Purva. He was on the arrow-bed for 58 nights and he had fought for ten days.
