Does anyone know where, on our calendar, the 100 year cycle ends & begins? For example, at the 27th year of our centuries - or when?
Will wrote:Not at all. If the last one hit his majority around 1900, that suggests that around 2000 the present one (who?) became active and will continue so for 30,40, 50 years. So I will posit that the Vimalamitra century turns at the beginning of a new one. So 2100, 2200 etc.
