Beinsa Douno's "New Epoch"
The New Epoch is Coming
In between Imperator speaking in the 1870s and Silver Birch speaking in the late 1930s and 40s came the mystic master Peter Deunov, a member of the White Brotherhood incarnated to tell us about the “New Epoch” approaching.
After his 1897 illumination, Deunov adopted the name “Beinsa Douno,” or the “the Bringer of Good through the Word.”
Deunov was born in 1864 and died in 1944. He lived most of his life in his native Bulgaria but was educated in theological colleges and medical school in the United States.
On March 7, 1897, his biographer says, the Spirit of God descended on him. (1) He was thirty-three at the time. As a result, he realized his mission and status as a master of the Great White Brotherhood.
On March 9, 1914, Douno proclaimed the advent of the “New Era of Aquarius.” From then until his death, he lectured about cosmology, the White Brotherhood, and the coming new world.
In 1917, the man later to be known as Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov met Beinsa Douno and became his fast discliple.
In many ways his style is reminiscent of an Old-Testament prophet (Jeremiah comes to mind) and people may have difficulty reading it. But the fact remains that Douno is a second case (third with Silver Birch) of a spiritual leader predicting the events which are occurring around us. His case cannot but be corroborative.
He predicted that “a new Epoch is … coming.” (2) He said “there will be a new heaven and a new earth, and a New Humanity.” (3) In that new age, everyone “will have such freedom as when God first gave it to them.” (4)
“When we enter [the New Epoch], we will be as free as those who are our Advanced Brothers: the Angels, the Archangels, the Cherubim and the Seraphim. (5)
At this time, “the idea of brotherhood will come into realization.”(6) In those times, “the strong will be the servant of the weak.” (7)
He painted a glowing word picture of what life would be like in the New Epoch:
“The houses will not be constructed as they are now, but will be built several kilometers away from one another. The animals will be given rest from the people. To the artists, musicians and other people of the arts, the best conditions for work will exist. …
“The inner wealth, the knowledge which a person possesses, will be available to all. Now you are provided with air, light and water. One day the bread too will be given to you like the air, the water and the light. …
“People will have bread in abundance. Everyone will have a home, a garden and fruit trees. When you pass through a place that is new to you, you will be asked from all sides to come in for a visit.
“In the new Order, everything old will disappear and all things will be completely new. …
“Somebody may say, ‘When we are perfect, what will we do?’ We will then begin to live. (8)
