Theory of relativity, wormhole and Time Travel in Hinduism


“When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.” -Albert Einstein
Bohr, Heisenberg and Schrödinger regularly read Vedic texts. Heisenberg stated, “Quantum theory will not look ridiculous to people who have read Vedanta.”
Concepts introduced by the theories of relativity include:
1. Measurements of various quantities are relative to the velocities of observers. In particular, space contracts and time dilates.
2. Spacetime: space and time should be considered together and in relation to each other.
3.The speed of light is nonetheless invariant, the same for all observers.

According to Hindu scriptures, Brahma is the creator of this universe and the planet where he resides is called as “Brahma-Lok”. His creation aspect is repetitive in nature where there is a Satya yuga (Golden age) which spans for 1.728 million years, followed by Treta yuga(Silver age) spanning 1.296 million years, followed by Dwapar yuga (Bronze age) spanning 864 million years followed by Kali yuga(Dark age) spanning 432000 million years. These four yugas are repeated 71 times to form one manvantara. Manvantara is repeated fourteen times to form Half kalpa, meaning One day of Lord brahma. Another half kalpa is night of Lord Brahma.

In satya yuga(Golden age), there lived a benevolent and courageous king called Kakudmi. He had a very beautiful daughter named Revati, endowed with auspicious and mystical qualities. King Kakudmi was not able to find a suitable match for her in the entire earth and decides to travel to Brahmalok (Which exist millions of light years away from earth). When they arrived at brahma lok, Lord Brahma was listening to a musical performance by celestial Dancers. King kakudmi waited patiently for sometime till the musical performance was finished. After the musical performance when Lord Brahma asked the king for his problem, he said “I am not able to find a suitable match for my daughter ‘Revati’”. Then Lord Brahma smiles and explains that time runs differently on different planes of existence. Your few minutes in my celestial planets are equivalent to many yugas on earth.Lord Brahma: “Son, Speed of time on earth and my celestial planet (Brahmalok) is different. On earth, speed of time is so fast that in one day of Brahms loka, many yugas on earth have passed. During your stay on Brahma loka, three yugas have passed on earth. O king, don’t waste time any more. Go to earth as early as possible. Till you reach there, Dwapar yuga would have ended. At that time, Sheshnaag would incarnate in a human form. He along with the ever-pervading god Lord Krishna may be playing game (illusions) on earth. Your daughter Revati in reality is a wife of Sheshnaag. Under the blessings of Devi Nagalakshmi, she has incarnated on earth to serve her husband Sheshnaag. ”
Brahma said by the time you came and stayed here, already 27 Manvantara have passed. “O King, all your ministers, wives, kinsmen, father etc, all those whom you have accepted as your sweetheart has swept away in the course of time. Today, nobody on earth knows about you or your descendants”. Shocked and surprised, king looks for a solution. Then Brahma says “If you start now, by the time you reach earth, you will be in Dwapar yuga of 28 Manvantara. There you can marry your daughter to Balaram, the avatar of Sheshnaag, Lord Vishnu serpent. And You will be granted Moksha(Salvation) by none other than Lord Krishna, avatar of Lord Vishnu for that yuga.”
This concept of relativity has been proved by American scientist and astronauts travelling in space on their spacecrafts. Even when the astronauts travel in spaceships for years, they feel like travelling for only few days.
In INTERSTELLAR movie, there is a concept- 1 Hour on Miller planet is equal to 7 Years on Earth.
Due to a technical snag, the team is forced to spend 3 hours on that planet resulting in loss of 23 years on Earth. Which means 10 years old daughter of Hero becomes 33 years old and the hero remains of the same age.

In Hindu Mythology, once in the war between Gods & Demons, Indra took help of (Human) king Muchukunda.
King Muchukunda helped gods in the war but the war lasted for 1 year and that was in heaven.

After the war was over, when Muchukunda expresses desire to go back to earth to meet his family, Indra tells him that 1 year in Heaven is equal to 360 years on Earth hence his family & kingdom must have been destroyed by now with the passage of time.
Bhagavat Purana which explains the relativity of time:
“… One’s life endures for only one hundred years, in terms of the times in the different planets… Eternal time is certainly the controller of different dimensions, from that of the atom up to the super-divisions of the duration of Brahmâ’s life; but, nevertheless, it is controlled by the Supreme. Time can control only those who are body conscious, even up to the Satyal
