Sri Krishna and the First Azhwars

Based on the references from vishnu puruna and relating them to Azhwar’s birth, it is clear that Krishna had not met mudhal azhwars and there is a time difference of 69,542 years between them.

Krishna left to Sri Vaikuntam by the last day of Dwapara Yuga meaning:

Purva Sandhi + Dwapara Yuga = 2,200*360 = 792,000th dwapara year
Mudal azhwars were born in uthara sandhi by the 861,902th dwapara year.
So, both of them have not met each other and there is a time difference of 861,902 – 792,360 = 69,542 man years between them.

The calculation is as follows:
  1. Dvapara Yuga: No of years without Purva and Sandhi Kalam (2,000*360) = 720,000 man years
  2. Purva+Uttara Sandhi(200+200 deva varusham) = 400 * 360 = 144,000 man years
  3. Total Years = 864,000 man years Krishna left for SriVaikuntam (before Uttara sandhi) 720,000+72,000(purva sandhi) = 792,000 man years
  4. Krishna left by Last day (plus 1 deva day * 360)= 792,360 dwapara year
  5. Avatara Year of Mudal Azhwars = 861,902 dwapara year
  6. Time difference between Kannan and Mudal Azhwars = 69,542 man years

Sri Krishna left for Sri Vaikuntam in approximately 111,101 BCE.


This is based on the calculation as follows:
  1. 864,000 Dwapara years - 792,000 Dwapara = 72,000 years in the Dwapara Yuga.
  2. 72,000 years in Dwapara + 36,000 Purva Kali years = 108,000 years.
  3. 108,000 years + 3,101 years before 1 AD = 111,101 years Before Common Era (BCE).
The First (Mudhal) Azhwars were born in approximately 34,999 BCE.
This is based on the calculation as follows:
  1. 864,000 Dwapara years - 861,902 Dwapara = 2,098 years in the Dwapara Yuga.
  2. 2,098 years in Dwapara + 36,000 Purva Kali years = 38,098 years.
  3. 38,098 years + 3101 years before 1 AD = 34,999 years Before Common Era (BCE).
Nammalwar was born in 3101 BCE.
