The Legend of Dagad Trikon is an epic, a saga covering ten thousands years of history. It is completely unique and original, but it bears comparison to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S.Lewis and J.K.Rowling. Whereas the writing of Tolkien and Lewis was specifically informed by their Christian beliefs, The Legend of Dagad Trikon fuses many religious and cultural traditions into a seamless whole – for, despite their superficial differences, they are all one and the same. The cycle of time within The Legend of Dagad Trikon can be seen as Hindu in influence, for that tradition sees time in cyclical patterns, whereas we in the West see time as essentially linear.

The plot of The Legend of Dagad Trikon begins in the present time, in Cairo, where an American diplomat and scholar, Jonathan O’Lachan, has a dream where he is visited by Hanuman, who takes him back ten thousand years, to a society within a triangle rock complex in the depths of the Sahara desert, inhabited by an enlightened race called the Avasthas. Readers may be interested to note that ‘Dagad’ means ‘stone’ or ‘rock’ and ‘Trikon’ means ‘triangle’ in the Marathi language, which is the language of Maharashtra, the state in southern India, the capital of which is now Mumbai, previously Bombay.

As the cycle of time passed, and a new time came where evil would predominate, the Avasthas disappeared, but in a final act, they sent messengers to different parts of the planet, to hide ten caskets, that contained the secrets of their enlightened knowledge, to be found eons later, when the time came when good would again re-assert itself.
