History is most often written with an agenda. Early indologists wished to control and convert the followers of Vedic cultures, therefore spreading the word that the Vedas were simply mythology. Let’s take Max Muller for example. He initially wrote that the ‘Vedas were worse than savage’ and that India must be conquered again by education. He went on to say that the religion there is doomed although later on glorified the Vedas.
It was these Indologists that devised the Aryan Invasion Theory who many believe intentionally misinterpreted the Sanskrit language to make the Vedas look primitive. It is no secret that the British who invaded India, tried to make India feel ashamed of their own culture, thus indicating that perhaps these men were motivated by a racial bias. Nowadays, the Aryan Invasion Theory is under scrutiny. Did it actually occur? Nope. No evidence that it actually did occur. The Vedic culture is thought to have derived from foreign soil according to the Aryan invasion yet there are NO FINDINGS that can be associated with Aryan people coming to India.
Nowhere in the Vedas is there a single mention of an Aryan homeland outside of India, yet the Saraswati River where two thirds of the 2,500 Indus sites were found, was. Now the Aryans are thought to have arrived AFTER the Saraswati River dried up. Why would a desolated river be mentioned over 50 times in the Rig Veda if there was no use for the river? Why would the Aryans even write about it? The way the Saraswati River is described in the Vedas indicate that it was written pre-Aryan.
There is no genetic, cultural, archaeological substantial evidence proving that there was an invasion. It is all just theory and yet it’s still being taught as a fact today in textbooks, in schools.
ax Muller is the main guy who actually proposed the Aryan Invasion. Now…anyone seeing what I’m seeing? Is anyone already seeing the manipulation I’m seeing? This guy believed in the Biblical chronology. He placed the world at 400BC and the flood approximately 2500BC and therefore randomly suggested that the Aryans came to India around 1500BC. However he later goes on to contradict himself. He admitted the purely speculative nature of the Vedic chronology yet it appears all of mankind have seemed to turn a blind eye to that.
Now let us examine the facts about the so-called evidences in support of AIT:
1. Real Meaning of the Word ‘ARYA’ In 1853, Max Muller introduced the word ‘Arya’ into the English and European usage as applying to a racial and linguistic group when propounding the Aryan Racial theory. However, in 1888, he himself refuted his own theory and wrote:
I have declared again and again that if I say Aryas, I mean neither blood nor bones, nor hair, nor skull; I mean simply those who speak an Aryan language…to me an ethnologist who speaks of Aryan race, Aryan blood, Aryan eyes and hair, is as great a sinner as a linguist who speaks of a dolichocephalic dictionary or a brachycephalic grammar. (Max Muller, Biographies of Words and the Home of the Aryas, 1888, pg 120) In Vedic Literature, the word Arya is nowhere defined in connection with either race or language. Instead it refers to: gentleman, good-natured, righteous person, noble-man, and is often used like ‘Sir’ or ‘Shree’ before the name of a person like Aryaputra, Aryakanya, etc.
Actually there is evidence that the scriptures are indigenous to the Indians that occupied the country. For example the linguistic characteristic between the Indus civilisation and Vedic is so similar. Om symbols can be found, the swastika and many more. Harappan seals have been deciphered consistently Vedic. Pottery found has written ‘the sacred land which is bounded by the Saraswati River.’ Again, that river is mentioned in the Vedas. Even the practices of some gods from the Indus civilisation were found in the Vedas as well.
Even the word ‘Aryan’ which means ‘master race’ seems rather big headed. It shows me an image of people who believe that they are right. Why would the Aryans who invaded write in a different language that is not their own? And in Sanskrit…a very difficult language? They wouldn’t. A proud race like them would have not bothered trying to learn the new culture or language and tried to rein everything with their own. We should be seeing a different culture that the Aryans would have brought with them.
So all in all, here are some major flaws which I mentioned above clearly shown:
1.There is no mention of a region outside of India. If indeed the Aryans had taken over, they would have at least spoken about their “mighty victory” of capturing the land of India. If Hindu-Aryans were outsiders, why are all the holy places found in India?
2. Why talk about the Saraswati river more than 50 times when it dried up by the time of the so called invasion? It had no use. Why praise it?
3. If the Aryans invaded the towns of the Harappa valley and killed the citizens…why did they not take over the towns and live there themselves?
4. There is no genetic, cultural, archaeological substantial evidence proving that there was an invasion. It is all just theory and yet it’s still being taught as a fact today in textbooks, in schools.
5. Max Muller created the Aryan Invasion Theory and later on admitted its speculative nature.
Some sites to look at:
There is actually substanstial evidence that the Mahabharata war actually occurred, such as in Kurukshetra, the scene of the Mahabharata war, iron arrows and spearheads have been excavated and dated by thermoluminence to 2,800 B.C.E., the approximate date of the war given within the Mahabharata itself. And below I’d like to talk about another one.
Dwarka, known as Dvaraka, is one of the cities that are mentioned in the Mahabharata. It was a port city having a lot of trade relations. More famously it is known famously it is referred to the capital of Krishna Bagwaan’s capital, which arose from the ocean at his commend and returned when Krishna Bagwaan no longer walked the earth. The most expensive materials were used for construction, commonly gold, precious stone sand silver. This is all learnt from the Mahabharata and we also learn:
The sea, which had been beating against the shores, suddenly broke the boundary that was imposed on it by nature. The sea rushed into the city. It coursed through the streets of the beautiful city. The sea covered up everything in the city. I saw the beautiful buildings becoming submerged one by one. In a matter of a few moments it was all over. The sea had now become as placid as a lake. There was no trace of the city. Dwaraka was just a name; just a memory. – Arjuna, Mahabharata
One of the main objects that actually further proved that this city was Dwarka was a seal of a three headed animal. In the Vedas, it describes that this seal was given to the citizens as an identity of proof when the city was being threaded by King Jarasandha. This seal was also found in the ruins under the ocean.
Interesting video to watch:
Not only does Dwarka collaborate by the words written in the scriptures but the 3 cities that the Pandavas had at the end of the Mahabharata shows cultural consistency with the events and even images such as on pottery painted of the win. Talking about cities. Let me briefly mention Hastinapur. In the Vayu Puranas and Matsya, a great flood occurred which destroyed the capital city of Hastinapur. This made the inhabitants move to Kausambi where archaeological evidence actually has been found and dated back to just after the flood. The soil of Hastinapur also shows proof for the flooding.
Advanced Technology: Nuclear Wars
What’s rather odd is that within the ancient scriptures there are continuous mentions of advanced technology from mechanical flying machines to weapons that seem like our own. Think about it carefully. People from thousands and thousands of years ago could think of weapons that we have created, think of disasters that have already occurred yet described in detail and people thousands of years ago, who we believe lived primitively had the ability to think of it? That’s just incredible. The writings so clearly compare to e.g. nuclear wars that we have to question how they could think that with such remarkable detail and even question if they indeed had the technology for that….If they did, that would mean a big, big change in all of our thinking today.
A wise man once stated:
I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
What Einstein said was magnificent., yet give it a moment….what if he was only relating the past? What if humans had to start again, had to fight again with sticks and stones?
The human race appears to be very arrogant. We consider ourselves as the most superior in all of history and out of all species. Well, I don’t think so. The destruction that we cause is fuelled by our greed and hunger for power. And apparently to people, that seems to be a perfectly sound reason. Yet let us go way way back. I actually believe there was advanced technology in many cultures. If we try to go back in history, we’d just come to a massive gap where we know nothing. Let’s look at some ancient technology that appeared in the Hindu scriptures.
Some interesting links:
The Mahabharata is rather strange. As shown above, there is actually loads of evidence that the Vedas are true. In this beautiful literature depicting a war, we see many mentions of effects of what we call ‘nuclear weapons.’
Here’s one passage:
“Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful vimana [fast aircraft],
hurled a single projectile [rocket]
charged with the power of the Universe [nuclear device].
An incandescent column of smoke and flame,
as bright as ten thousand suns,
rose with all its splendour.
It was an unknown weapon,
an iron thunderbolt,
a gigantic messenger of death,
which reduced to ashes
the entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
The corpses were so burned
as to be unrecognizable.
Hair and nails fell out;
Pottery broke without apparent cause,
and the birds turned white.
…After a few hours
all foodstuffs were infected…
…to escape from this fire
the soldiers threw themselves in streams
to wash themselves and their equipment.”
Reading through it, a lot of what is written does appear familiar. Indeed, when a nuclear blast occurs we see a lengthy column that is emitting light and smoke. Our food becomes contaminated and deadly to eat…hair falls out….corpses are burned. These are all sure signs of a nuclear blast. However, most people die from the effects of the nuclear blasts, the radiation and this passage probably describes the actual blast itself.
The passage tells of combat where explosions of final weapons decimate entire armies, causing crowds of warriors with steeds and elephants and weapons to be carried away as if they were dry leaves of trees. Instead of mushroom clouds, the writer describes a perpendicular explosion with its billowing smoke clouds as consecutive openings of giant parasols. There are comments about the contamination of food and people’s hair falling out. – Kisari Mohun Ganguli (historian)
Francis Taylor, an archaeologist, said that etchings in nearby temples, which he translated, suggest that they prayed to be spared from the great light that was coming to lay ruin to the city. “It’s so mid-boggling to imagine that some civilization had nuclear technology before we did. The radioactive ash adds credibility to the ancient Indian records that describe atomic warfare.”
Here’s another passage:
“Dense arrows of flame,
like a great shower,
issued forth upon creation,
encompassing the enemy.
A thick gloom swiftly settled upon the Pandava hosts.
All points of the compass were lost in darkness.
Fierce wind began to blow
Clouds roared upward,
showering dust and gravel.
Birds croaked madly…
the very elements seemed disturbed.
The sun seemed to waver in the heavens
The earth shook,
scorched by the terrible violent heat of this weapon.
Elephants burst into flame
and ran to and fro in a frenzy…
over a vast area,
other animals crumpled to the ground and died.
From all points of the compass
the arrows of flame rained continuously and fiercely.”
And this one is from the Ramanya:
”(It was a weapon) so powerful
that it could destroy the earth in an instant–
A great soaring sound in smoke and flames–
And on it sits death…” . — The Ramayana
It has a resemblance to deaths by radiation poisoning and the blast itself.
A Town near Mohenjo-Daro
There’s a lot of discussion from what I’ve seen on ATS and outside about this topic on mysterious weapons found once again in the Mahabharata. Many people believe it’s myths but there’s an uncanny resemblance once again to what is written in the Vedas. The effects described seem to be identical to what they actually are.
Near Mohenjo-Daro, excavations were carried out in the early 1900s which led to a large town being discovered. Rather than what it held, scientists are more intrigued by its death. There is no evidence of a flood; there weren’t many skeletons nor remnants of weapons nor anything else that showed there was a war or a natural disaster. From the scientific analysis, the catastrophe had occurred very quickly and unexpectedly. So what actually caused this?
Davneport and Vincenti are 2 scientists who put forward a theory…that there was a nuclear blast. What they found was stratums of green glass and clay which causes archaeologists to believe that there were high temperatures that melted the clay and sand and immediately hardened afterwards. These stratums of green glass can be found in Nevada desert AFTER EVERY nuclear explosion. Researchers believe that the temperature was over 1,500 degrees centigrade to melt this. If we look at the walls and foundations of the city, there are literally vitrified; fused together.
There also appeared to be some kind of “epicentre.” Destruction appears to have lessened towards the outskirts. Loads of skeletons were found in the area of Mohenjo-Daro which were 50 times more radioactive than normal which were found by a Soviet scholar. What’s unsettling is that many of these skeletons were found all over the place, holding hands and sprawled in the streets. The skeletons are thousands of years old and there appears to be no cause of physically violent death. They have been dated back to 2500 BC but please remember when atomic explosions are involved; it makes it seem much younger. Carbon-dating meaurs the amount of radiation left which for this type is rather unreliable. Furthermore, why didn’t they get eaten by wild animals? And why didn’t it decay?
Rajasthan: Radioactive Ash
If we look at some other cities nearby, in Northern India, many show evidence for explosions of a massive magnitude. In one city between the Ganga and the Rajmahal mountains, we can find it’s been subjected to intense heat.
Yet let us go to Rajasthan. This one particularly caught my eye. A heavy layer of ash covers a 3 square mile area. This is around 10 miles west of Jodhpur. The levels of radiation are so high that the government has now made that region off limits. Scientists have also found a high rate of birth defects and cancer where a housing development was built. Scientists then apparently unearthed an ancient city where they found evidence of an atomic blast dating back thousands of years: from 8,000 to 12,000 years. Most of the buildings were destroyed and apparently ½ a million people.
Could this possibly be another piece of evidence that the Mahabharata’s events occurred?
Another video to watch:
Advanced Technology: UFOs
Clearly the ancient story of mankind is far more exciting than anything we are taught in school today. Various threads, evidence, show the lies, the misconceptions that children are fed and manipulated to believe causing many humans to share the narrow and rigid mind many have. Be open to all the prospects; don’t believe that this can’t occur because you think it can’t. There’s no evidence neither proving nor disproving it. I hear numerous times that ‘people couldn’t do this or that because they just couldn’t be clever enough in the past.’ What’s more, it’s easy to wipe out civilisations as we’ve seen in history…what’s stopping an event that destroys any signs of intelligence?
Vimanas are thought to be like UFOs. There are, once again, many mentions of flying aircrafts in the Mahabharata during the battle. In the Mahabharata, there is an enormous poem where we learn that a guy called Asura Maya had a Vimana, that has 4 wheels and measures 12 cubits in circumference and the Ramayana describes a Vimana as a double-deck, circular aircraft with portholes and a dome. Furthermore it’s thought that the Vimanas were able to be made invisible in some way. When Krishna Bagwaan was pursuing Salva, his Vimana was made invisible in some way. However, Krishna Bagwaan, it is said, fired off a special weapon, that ‘quickly laid an arrow, which killed by seeking out sound.’
The Puspaka car that resembles the Sun and belongs to my brother was brought by the powerful Ravan; that aerial and excellent car going everywhere at will…. that car resembling a bright cloud in the sky”… and the King [Rama] got in, and the excellent car at the command of the Raghira, rose up into the higher atmosphere.” – Ramayana
In the Samarangana Sutradhara, it’s written:
Strong and durable must the body of the Vimana be made, like a great flying bird of light material. Inside one must put the mercury engine with its iron heating apparatus underneath. By means of the power latent in the mercury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion, a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in the sky. The movements of the Vimana are such that it can vertically ascend, vertically descend, move slanting forwards and backwards. With the help of the machines human beings can fly in the air and heavenly beings can come down to earth. The Hakatha (Laws of the Babylonians) states quite unambiguously: The privilege of operating a flying machine is great. The knowledge of flight is among the most ancient of our inheritances. A gift from ‘those from upon high’. We received it from them as a means of saving many lives.
How to engineer this though?
Imagine a mechanical study on Apollo’s Sun Chariot. Well this is what one of the Kings who reigned from 1000-1055AD who went by the name of King Bhoja of Dhar did. One of his most famous works is an encyclopaedia on Indian architecture the Samarangana Sutradhara as I mentioned above. This man went on to talk about the Vimanas, much more than any other Vedic texts. He portrays them as practical machines and nothing “celestial” about them. He wrote about them having a ‘mercury engine,’ possibly it having an internal iron heating apparatus. What’s rather strange is that the man wrote:
“manufacturing details of the vimanas are withheld for the sake of secrecy, not out of ignorance.”
In 1918, a guy named Subbaraya Shastry fell into a trance where he recited ancient Sanskrit verses. He then went to speak of the Vimanas. Rather than stories about the gods, he spoke scientifically about them and apparently they were written already by an ancient guy called Bharadvaja. 35 years on, this text was found and translated into Hindi and published by G.R. Joyser.
It is called the ‘Vaimanika Shastra.’ This one goes into a lot of detail compared to the Vedic texts and Bhoja. It has 8 titles, a few being:
Chapter 1 – The secret of constructing airplanes which will not break, which cannot be cut, will not catch fire and cannot be destroyed
Chapter 3 – The secret of making planes invisible
Chapter 8 – The secrets of destroying enemy planes
Particularly interesting is a discussion of how flying has changed over time: in the earliest Yuga (epoch), the text claims that people could fly without the use of vimanas. In other words, Indians invented ancient flying machines only after they lost the ability to fly on their own. The text goes on to describe a number of specific vimana models (complete with fine drawings by a local engineer), serving various purposes; some are built to carry hundreds of passengers or large loads of ammunition, others have the capacity to transform into boats or submarines.
Finally, the text cites 32 “secrets” related to construction and operation of vimanas. These include anti-gravity, radar, invisibility, the use of heat-absorbent metal alloys, solar energy, protective force-fields, and mirrors and lenses crafted for purposes of attack and defense. Also included are concoctions of animal urine as a source of power as well as a weapon called a ‘marika,’ which resembles modern laser technology.Proponents of ancient technology theories, for whom the apparently thousands-of-years-old Vaimanika Shastra is a touchstone, point out that the manuscript references “the work of no less than 70 authorities and 10 experts of air travel in antiquity.”
When the Vaimanika Shastra was brought before the Indian Institute of Science, the scientists scoffed. As thoroughly as it had been written, the committee just as thoroughly dismantled the study in an essay called A Critical Study of the Work Vymanika Shastra. They questioned whether the author (whoever that may have been) had any grasp of basic physics, chemistry and electricity, not to mention the “disciplines of aeronautics: aerodynamics, aeronautical structures, propulsive devices, materials, and metallurgy.” Their conclusion: “None of the planes has properties or capabilities of being flown; the geometries are unimaginably horrendous from the point of view of flying; and the principles of propulsion make them resist rather than assist flying.”
Okay, let’s suppose there was NO WAY IN HELL trying to fly them….think more about what was written thousands of years ago…radar technology, anti-gravity, invisibility? Some of this stuff we’re still experimenting on. Even for them to have the concepts about these would in my opinion, make them definitely advanced. Much more advanced than we believe them to be.
Why did the Indian Institute of Science went to great lengths to dismiss the Vaimanika Shastra? Why does the Vimanas repeatedly mentioned throughout history? Moreover, what inspired the writers to believe in and continuously write about these aircrafts?
Yet we talk about the Vimanas, but apparently theorists claim there to be a previous type of Vimanas. In the Rig Veda, it’s described as ‘golden coloured…birds’ that fly ‘up to the heavens.’ They also appear to be structural:
Another translation adds “pivots and instruments” to the description. Advocates of ancient technology theories call them the “mechanical birds.”
In the Ramayana (ca. 4th century BC), the Hindu epic poem recounting how Lord Rama rescues his wife Sita from the evil god Ravana, vimana experts cite the flying chariot called the Pushpaka vimana:
Self-propelled was that car. It was large and finely painted. It had two stories and many chambers with windows… It gave forth a melodious sound as it coursed along its airy way.
Later, the Pushpaka vimana is described as an “aerial and excellent chariot going everywhere at will…[rising] up into the higher atmosphere.”
Furthermore, Arjuna describes:
“celestial cars by thousands stationed in their respective places and capable of going everywhere at will, and he saw tens of thousands of such cars moving in every direction.”
And it goes on about an iron city in space.
In another Indian source, the Samar, the Vimanas were
“iron machines, well-knit and smooth, with a charge of mercury that shot out of the back in the form of a roaring flame.
Yet it doesn’t even stop there. There’s information in the Chaldean work, ‘The Sifrala’ which contains over a hundred pages on details on building the flying machine. It contains words that mean in English; graphite rods, copper coils, crystal indicator, vibrating spheres, stable angles. Going on, we can also find batteries in ancient scriptures written:
In another amazing Indian text the Agastrya Samhita gives the precise directions for constructing electrical batteries:
“Place a well-cleaned copper plate in an earthenware vessel.
Cover it first by copper sulfate and then moist sawdust.
After that put a mercury-amalgamated-zinc sheet on top of
an energy known by the twin name of Mitra-Varuna. Water will
be split by this current into Pranavayu and Udanavayu. A
chain of one hundred jars is said to give a very active
and effective force.”
ÄÄ Agastya Samhita
(Indian Princes’ Library)
By the way, MITRA-VARUNA is now called cathode-anode, and Pranavayu
and Udanavayu are to us oxygen and hydrogen. This document again
demonstrates the presence of electricity in the East, long, long
Alexander the Great
Now we come onto the theories. I found this from an article, that I thought I’d briefly mention since it caught my eye:
It is interesting to note that when Alexander the Great invaded India more than two thousand years ago, his historians chronicled that at one point they were attacked by “flying,fiery shields” that dove at his army and frightened the cavalry. These “flying saucers” did not use any atomic bombs or beam weapons on Alexander’s army however, perhaps out of benevolence, and Alexander went on to conquer India.
Apparently (and it’s a big apparently since I can’t find any evidence for this) the Soviet scientists have also found ‘age-old instruments used in navigating cosmic vehicles’ in the caves in the Gobi desert and Turkestan. They have a drop of mercury inside and are hemispherical. Could it be a Vimana?
Of course I don’t know how credible this is but if indeed this is true…more evidence to add to quite a substantial pile already.
Advanced Tech: Other
And no, it just doesn’t stop there with the “weapons” and technology. There’s loads mentioned in the books. What’s more, it’s not just one that has similarities with ours but there’s so many. Let’s look at the some of the Astras; weapons:
Agneyastra Brahmastra,Chakram, Garudastra, Kaumodaki, Narayanastra, Pashupata, Shiva Dhanush, Sudarshana Chakra, Trishul, Vaishnavastra, Varunastra, and Vayavastra.
These weapons are said to only be able to be used by the Gods. They use the elements to their strength. Out of all these, the Brahmastra is the most powerful weapon. It can only be used for one person but it’s absolutely lethal. The first passage that I mentioned in the nuclear war section is thought to be the effects of this use. It contained the power of the universe and the passage describes nuclear radiation effects….this then could have probably been the nuclear weapon.
Another weapon that seems similar to what we have today is the missile. In the Mahabharata, we learn that Salva who was flying in an invisible Vimana was attacked by a special fire weapon that seeked sound and downed the Vimana and killed Salva.
Then you can find “mirrors” that are used to amplifiy light, deflect, reflect etc light. Reminds me of laser beams and holograms. Most of the information on this bit is from this blog which I believe this is the source:
which is probably worth then reading.
The 5 main Darpana Yantras are:
1) Vishwa kriyaa darpana: This device is used to obtain high resoluton real-time imagery of all activites around the Vimana, while in flight, and projected onto some screen. These lens are placed in a special arrangement with crystals, special mirrors and through a combination of solar, electric and mercury power are projected through some mechanism.
2) Shaktyakarshana darpana: This device is used as a protection to neutralize harmful radiation in certain atmospheric zones. It is made up of 6 crystals positioned in a special arrangement that attract the harmful radiation and then gradually covert it to heat before it dissipates into the atmosphere.
3) Vyroopya darpana: This is tactical device used to project battle field holographic images to confuse the enemy or to change the appearance of the Vimanas with a special deflecting mirror.
4) Guha garbha darpana: This is a weapon device and used to harness the energy from the sun, winds, and ether and to redirect it to incapaciate the enemy via a special redirecting mirror; essentially a directed energy weapon.
5) Rowdree Darpana: This is also some kind of directed energy weapon device. It combined Rodwdree beams(?) with solar rays and produces a high heat intensity ray that can melt anything it is directed on.
Other Yantras in the Vimana:
Guhagarbha Aadarsha Yantra: Used to locate mines or hidden explosives through air-reconnaissance. Through a sequence of mirrors and image reflecters an image of the ground below is obtained, which is then processed through a special crystal Chumbakamani, and then electricity and light rays are passed through it and then directed on a downwards mirror, that scans the ground.
Tamogarbh Yantra: Used to create some form of invisibility. The device works with revolving two faced mirrors collecting solar rays, activation of acid in the vessel on the opposite side, of mirrors, allowing solar ray to enter the crystal in an acid vessel. By turning a separate wheel in the west, darkness-intensifying mirror begin to function. By operation of a central wheel the rays attracted by the mirror will reach the crystal and envelop it. By operating the main wheel at high speed, darkness will envelop the entire vimana making it invisible.
Shabdhakarshaka yantra: Used in listening to sound waves in a range of 27 miles. It works on some kind of rotary component sensitive to sound.
Going on according to the source, it states that China found a few years ago documents in Sanskrit which they sent back to India to be translated. They spoke off directions for building interstellar spaceships.
Their method of propulsion, she said, was “anti-gravitational” and was based upon a system analogous to that of “laghima,” the unknown power of the ego existing in man’s physiological makeup, “a centrifugal force strong enough to counteract all gravitational pull.” According to Hindu Yogis, it is this “laghima” which enables a person to levitate.
Dr. Reyna said that on board these machines, which were called “Astras” by the text, the ancient Indians could have sent a detachment of men onto any planet, according to the document, which is thought to be thousands of years old. The manuscripts were also said to reveal the secret of “antima”; “the cap of invisibility” and “garima”; “how to become as heavy as a mountain of lead.”
Naturally, Indian scientists did not take the texts very seriously, but then became more positive about the value of them when the Chinese announced that they were including certain parts of the data for study in their space program! This was one of the first instances of a government admitting to be researching anti-gravity.
So what I got really out of that is…the Chinese are researching anti-gravity because of Vedic scriptures?
It doesn’t really talk about any interstellar travelling however in the Ramayana there’s a detailed trip to the moon and details of a battle with another airship.
This is just a small amount of technology that they talk about in the Mahabharata and a couple of small quotes…there are too many quotes referring to all these technology to put into this thread…there’s loads of sources on the Internet if you’d like to find out more.
I’ve also read on many articles (which appear to be copied and pasted from an original source which I have no idea what it is) that allegedly, there are secret brotherhoods which are hording the Vimanas and keeping it a secret from us. Those that know about this are thought to be “exceptionally enlightened” human beings and keep their knowledge away from us. That’s not surprising at all. I mean, they know we’d use it for devastation, for bad purposes as history time and time shows us. If I knew something that could be potentially used to cause death or such, I wouldn’t even utter a word.
Many writers believe that these Brotherhoods keep the Vimanas in caverns in Tibet or in underground bases. The Lop Nor Desert is meant to be a big UFO mystery and that could indeed be a place. Again, there is indeed no evidence for this. Just theories. But this theory must have started somewhere and should have an element of truth. If it’s correct, it’s one great hidden secret.
Slightly deviating I’d quickly like to mention the ‘Nine Unknown Men.’ They are actually probably one of the most famous secret societies thought to exist.The ancient Indians possessed loads of knowledge and I wouldn’t be surprised if this was true. Each of them guarded one book of knowledge…also at this point, I’d further like to say that in my family there’s one particular legend that COULD relate to this. Apparently, some Germans came to visit India…and read these books. Legend has it, they stole it and took it with them…hence the whole engineering phase of Germany and how absolutely amazing it is with its technology.
Anyway back to the NUM. They apparently had to keepsake 1 book each. People say that these books are hidden in a secret library in India/Tibet…or they could be lost…or one or two books could be with the Germans…
The Nine Books
It was said that the each of the Nine had responsibility over one book – guarding it from society and also trying to improve the knowledge in it. This means that each of the Nine had access to the source of this knowledge, were from another planet, or just unbelievably intelligent.
Each book had a different branch of this knowledge. The practices of the disciplines talked about are said to cause the destruction of the world. It is widely accepted that the following subjects were covered:
1) PROPAGANDA AND PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE – This is a set of messages aimed to influence the opinions and behaviour of large numbers of the people; basically information that influences the audient; allowing a mass opinion. It will allow anyone to govern the world.
Allowing anyone to govern the world. Sounds familiar to anyone? Many people believe in the NWO, Antichrist and so on.
2)PHYSIOLOGY – This is the study of the mechanical, physical and biochemical functions of living organisms. It is well known to hold instructions on how to perform the “touch of death.” (Basically, death is caused by a reversal of the nerve impulse.) The are rumours, true or false, that speak of Judo being leaked from this book.
3) (MICRO)BIOLOGY AND BIOTECHNOLOGY – A myth known very well to the inhabitants of India is that the water of Ganges is holy – special microbes were added to purify the rivers water (the microbes were designed by the Nine). It was said that the microbes were released into the river at a secret base in the Himalayas.
However the thing to be considered is that there are millions of ill, diseased pilgrims. Some with horrific ones. However, they can bathe in there without harming the healthy pilgrims. Rather unusual isn’t it? It has been discovered though, that the strange properties of the water are credited also to the bacteriophages that are contained. I’m not very good with this part of the topic, however isn’t one of the main ways people gain diseases and so on are through human contact? Surely the pathogens would be carried through the water.
4) ALCHEMY (+ TRANSMUTATION OF METALS) - Another major rumour in India is that during times of drought and other natural disasters, it has been said that temples and religious organisations receive large quantities of gold. They do not know who gave it from them. The fact that India has a few gold mines has puzzled many, also due to the large amount of gold given. However, this isn’t to say this is true – it could be a made up rumour to soothe the folks there. Also, we see India as a poor (but rapidly developing) country makes us wonder if there was really gold given to the country.
5) COMMUNTION (+ WITH E-Ts) – It probably indicates how to communicate with E-Ts and maybe new and advanced ways to communicate on Earth.
6) GRAVITATION (VAMINAKA SASTRA) – Many of you should be known to the Vimana. Apparently, this book does contain instructions on how to make one.
7) COSMOLOGY - If you believe in UFOs, one of the main queries is how they can travel so fast. In the 7th book, it describes how to travel at enormous speeds through spacetime fabric – possibly time travel. It seems that intra and inter universal trips are also discussed in this.
In the Indian Puranas, thought to be more than 1200 years old. A speed of the sun is given based on the Rig Veda. That speed is: 2,202 yojanas in half a nimesa. These are given in ancient indian units. Here is a conversion:
A yojanas is 8000 Dhanus/bows and each bow is 6 feet
A nimesa is 16/73 of a second, as deduced from the following in the Purans:
15 nimesa = 1 Kastha
30 Kastha = 1 Kala
30 Kala = 1 Mahutra
30 Malhutra = 1 day and night
If we convert them to their equivalent modern units, where each yojanas is 9 miles and each nimesha is 16/73.3 seconds, substituting it into the speed of the sun by the Rig Veda gives the speed of the sun as 186,536 miles per second which is most definitely not far off.
This means the Rig Veda figure is pretty accurate to the modern figure. This kind of accuracy can only be achieved with laser technology and highly sophisticated measuring equipment. However, this just corroborates what we already know from the Vymanika Shastra, that they did indeed have laser technology.
8) LIGHT - In this, it describes how to increase and decrease the speeds of light, to use it as a weapon and so on. Recently, we’ve seen such things as light being repelled and so on. Maybe we’ll eventually reach this stage? This works quite well with the Darpana Yantras.
9) SOCIOLOGY - The final books contains rules, laws , predictions, in a way on the evolution of societies and how to predict their downfall. This probably is one of the key ones – wouldn’t anyone want to stop fate (considering if this is actually true)?
There’s actually no physical, tangible evidence that some of this is actually true so please bear that in mind. Yet the depth of some of the writing, or the fact it’s even mentioned seems bewildering. For example, who would have come up with a nuclear blast? I mean, we didn’t even know what the effects were until actually testing it out and unfortunately that appeared to occur at Japan. We didn’t know how bad it’d be, or even what it’d look like. The Vimanas as well. Why would they talk about chariots or flying machines? Laser technology? How can one come up with that with no advanced knowledge?
What would have sparked that imagination that seems to protrude from the scriptures? Aliens? Or are these actual feats of intelligence? Or is it just another story contorted as it passed down society?
