Anybody familiar with the Indian system of the Yugas should know that the number 432,000 plays a pivotal role within it.

But then one finds the number hidden away or being utilized in other world cultures and civilizations...

Like with the Icelandic Norse for instance.

*From the*Grímnismál of the poetic

*Edda we find this reference to the number of*einherjar destined to go out and fight during Ragnarök.

22. There Valgrind stands, | the sacred gate,And behind are the holy doors;Old is the gate, | but few there areWho can tell how it tightly is locked.23. Five hundred doors | and forty there are,I ween, in Valhall's walls;Eight hundred fighters | through one door fareWhen to war with the wolf they go.

*So 800 warriors going through each of the 540 gates equals 432,000 warriors...*

*Then in China we find the same number being used again.*

From the obscure work of the Jesuit missionary Joseph Henri Marie de Prémare who wrote

*"Le Chou*-*King, un des livres sacrés*des*Chinois"*

The excerpt tells of the lifespans and reigns of ancient Chinese kings of legend and when you work the numbers you get this result...

11 + 13 = 24

and

18,000 x 24 = we get our 432,000 again.

Then onto Babylonia...

Where we find the same number again being used in the king list of the Babylonian chronicler and astronomer priest Berossus.

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berossus

*"Eusebius reports that Apollodorus reports that Berossus recounts 432,000 years from the first king, Aloros, to Xisouthros and the Babylonian Flood. From Berossus' genealogy, it is clear he had access to king-lists in compiling this section of History, particularly in the kings before the Flood (legendary though they are), and from the 7th century BC with Senakheirimos (Sennacherib, who ruled both Assyria and Babylon)."*

Then onto the New World and the ancient Maya...

The Mayan Long Count calendar (which actually predates the Mayans to a much older source) also appears to use a system related to or derived from the 432,000 number... For instance; The length of time called a k'atun contains 7,200 days. One b'ak'tun contains 20 k'atuns which is 144,000 days. (7,200 x 20)

Most classical Mayan calendrical dates end at the b'ak'tun as the maximum length. (which was no longer even being used by the Mayans which the Spanish encountered when they came on the scene) Now you could have any number of zeros attached to 144,000 but three there are and when we multiply 144,000 by 3 we get 432,000. So, 432,000 days would have been equivalent to 3 b'ak'tuns...
