|The Golden Age, the first quarter of the
cycle, is considered the peak of human civilisation. Bharat,
the continent's ancient name, is believed to have once been
the stage for a government without parallel in history.
The Age of Truth is symbolised by wisdom and virtue in might.
A time when natural ethics ruled, the Dharma was common to
Self-sovereignty and plenitude, use and expression of all
potentialities, filled the life of each and every soul. They
were remembered as being 'sixteen celestial degrees' or as
complete as the full moon. It was also called Paradise.
The reminiscence of this period remains incognito and yet
alive in every temple of India.
