My discussion with Cliff Dunning on the Earth Ancients Podcast, on the topic of the global tradition of the Seven Sages. This is based on my recent article: The Mystery of the Seven Sages: Were They Visitors from the Stars?

I get introduced at 46:52 mins into the podcast, and our discussion continues for nearly an hour after that. We touched upon of lot of interesting questions regarding the influence of the Seven Sages on our culture, and the implications of their extraterrestrial origins.

  1. This was a gem! I wish I could I could hear your podcasts on and on.
    My questions:
    You mentioned Seven Sages being from land(planets) mostly surrounded by water so can we conclufe that the pots with sacred water what we call "Kamandal" in sanskrit actually contain the water from their planets?
    There are many more questions I just can't collect all those right now, I would request you though to share more such podcasts, hearing you was really very pleasant.

    1. Thank you! The Seven Sages, after they arrive on our planet, live in the subterranean aquifers. So, I would think that the "sacred water" that they carry in their pots (kamandalu) is water from the underground aquifers, which they charge with powers using specific mantras. They are masters of rituals, and they can perform all kinds of miracles by the power of their mantras.

    2. What about Bhavishya Malika the question I asked one of your friends to ask you on my behalf? Please I am really curious.

    3. I dont know much about the Bhavishya Malika apart from the fact that it prophesizes the return of Kalki avatar after 5000 years of the Kali Yuga. The same information is also given in the Bhavishya Purana, which I had mentioned in my article on the Kali Yuga ending on 2025.

    4. Is it in Bhavishya Puran?? I mean timeline of Kaliyug in Bhavishya Puran is different right? BTW you said in this podcast that Sapta Rishis will come back at end of Kaliyug.. So can we say thay along with Kalki and Seven sages other divine being will also be visiting us.. and as you said they are extra terrestrials then does it mean that increase in UFO sightings is actually because the divine beings have already started coming and then they will show up at the right time. I know I might be annoying you. 🙂 Sorry for that

    5. I am sorry...I meant "Brahma-vaivarta Purana" in which Lord Krishna says that after 5,000 years of Kali Yuga there will be a dawn of a new Golden Age which will last for 10,000 years (Text 50, 59). This can be understood in the context of the Yuga Cycle timeline I had proposed. We are ending the Kali Yuga in 2025, nearly 5,700 years since its beginning in 3676 BC. And the end of the Kali Yuga will be followed by three more Yugas spanning 9,000 years, before the ascending cycle ends.
      Yes, the Seven Sages will return during the period of transition after the Kali Yuga ends. But,I think the Seven Sages will re-appear only after the arrival of the Kalki Avatar, who will bring utter destruction, followed by re-establishment of dharma. I do not find the UFO sightings credible, because many are hoaxes, some are drug-induced hallucinations, and the rest are probably secret military projects. I think when Kalki will appear in his celestial form, it will be extremely obvious to everyone, and there will not be any need for confirmation from other sources. His arrival will be preceded by an influx of divine energy that will destroy the darkness in our minds and lead to a collapse of the current social, economic and political order. It will be very tough for people to deal with these changes. We just had a little virus pandemic and everyone is losing their mind. You can imagine how difficult it will be for people when the actual changes begin to manifest.

    6. Yes I am getting your point, I have mailed you regarding 9th Avatar please shed some light on it is my last question I won't bother you anymore I have mailed you from
