The Ursa Major Cycle, Sapta Rishie Yuga

>

The constellation of Ursa Major, known as the Big Dipper, or the Big Bear and known as the Seven Rishies in Indian Astronomy. Atri, Angiras, Mareechi, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kritu, Vasishta.

In his ' Asiatic Researches", Prof Drayson says that ' the Hindus thought proper to connect their Mythology with an astronomical period of a strange nature. It is that of the Seven Rishies, moving along the Zodiac in a retrograde motion of 100 years in a constellation. As the Ecliptic is tenanted by 27 constellations, they take 2700 years to make a circuit of the Zodiac. This 2700 years is known as an Ursa Major Cycle or Sapta Rishi Yuga.

The first astronomical calender was erected by the Hindu Emperor, Vaivaswata Manu ( circa 8736 BCE ). It was based on the Ursa Major Cycle or Sapta Rishi Yuga.
