Most hindus believe in a cyclical universe, with creation and dissolution again and again. There are two kinds of dissolutions (Pralaya). A 4,320,000,000 year cycle of life, equivalent to one day and night of Lord Brahma, the creator God. A new life cycle takes place after this time. This is known as Naimittika Pralaya. Then there is a 311,040,000,000,000 year cycle when the universe is dissolved and after a break a new universe is created. This is known as Prakritik Pralaya.

At the beginning of creation, Lord Brahma gives rise to seven sages (of course with their spouses) whose progeny populates the world. The seven sages of the current age are Kashyapa, Atri, Vasishtha, Vishwamitra, Gautama, Jamadagni, and Bharadvaja. He also creates the king (Manu) and queen for the age. Presently, it is Vaivasvata Manu.

At the moment, we are passing through the seventh age (Manavantara) of the Swetavarah Kalpa (a bigger division of time equivalent to 14 Manvantara) which is the 51st.
