Dedicated to The Mother and Sri Aurobindo.
An epic always precedes the changing of an age in India. This is apparent from the past. Before the passage from the Silver to the Bronze Age, Ramayana was recorded. Mahabharata was written before the transition from the Bronze to the Iron Age. Now with the Iron Age coming to an end, and with the Golden Age approaching, a new epic, Devayan, has manifested.
Devayan, unlike the former two epics, does not only reveal to us the approaching Golden Age. Instead it describes the complete human cycle of 26,000 years covering the Golden, the Silver, the Bronze and the Iron Ages.
It consists of twelve volumes, with a thousand pages each, divided into thirty-two books, written in the Anusthupa metre, the classical Indian epic metre. It deals with the “origin and the creation of the universe”; the complete history of the world during the four ages, including the approaching Golden Age. This is the age of the Supramental consciousness as envisaged by Sri Aurobindo. Man will evolve into a being with a totally new and divine consciousness based upon the Vedic truths. The great Indian tradition lives on.
