The art on flying in ancient India (UFO enigma)
Sacrifice code wfor0443
Sacrifice date 25 march 2009
Many researchers into the UFO enigma tend to overlook a very important
fact. While it assumed that most flying saucers are of alien, or perhaps
Governmental Military origin, another possible origin of UFOs is ancient
India and Atlantis.
What we know about ancient Indian flying vehicles comes from ancient
Indian sources; written texts that have come down to us through the centuries.
There is no doubt that most of these texts are authentic; many are the
well known ancient Indian Epics themselves, and there are literally hundreds
of them. Most of them have not even been translated into English yet from
the old Sanskrit.
The Indian Emperor Ashoka started a "Secret Society of the Nine
Unknown Men": great Indian scientists who were supposed to catalogue
the many sciences. Ashoka kept their work secret because he was afraid
that the advanced science catalogued by these men, culled from ancient
Indian sources, would be used for the evil purpose of war, which Ashoka
was strongly against, having been converted to Buddhism after defeating
a rival army in a bloody battle.
The "Nine Unknown Men" wrote a total of nine books, presumably
one each. Book number was "The Secrets of Gravitation!" This
book, known to historians, but not actually seen by them dealt chiefly
with "gravity control." It is presumably still around somewhere,
kept in a secret library in India, Tibet or elsewhere (perhaps even in
North America somewhere). One can certainly understand Ashoka's reasoning
for wanting to keep such knowledge a secret, assuming it exists. if the
Nazis had such weapons at their disposal during World War Ii. Ashoka was
also aware devastating wars using such advanced vehicles and other "futuristic
weapons" that had destroyed the ancient Indian "Rama Empire"
several thousand years before.
Only a few years ago, the Chinese discovered some Sanskrit documents
in Lhasa, Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh to be translated.
Dr. Ruth Reyna of the University said recently that the documents contain
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.
The manuscripts did not say definitely that interplanetary travel was
ever made but did mention, of all things, a planned trip to the Moon,
though it is not clear whether this trip was actually carried out. However,
one of the great Indian epics, the Ramayana, does have a highly detailed
story in it of a trip to the moon in a Vimana (or "Astra"),
and in fact details a battle on the moon with an "Asvin" (or
This is but a small bit of recent evidence of anti-gravity and aerospace
technology used by Indians. To really understand the technology, we must
go much further back in time.
The so-called "Rama Empire" of Northern India and Pakistan
developed at least fifteen thousand years ago on the Indian sub-continent
and was a nation of many large, sophisticated cities, many of which are
still to be found in the deserts of Pakistan, northern, and western India.
Rama existed, apparently, parallel to the Atlantean civilization in the
mid-Atlantic Ocean, and was ruled by "enlightened Priest-Kings"
who governed the cities, The seven greatest capital cities of Rama were
known in classical Hindu texts as "The Seven Rishi Cities."
According to ancient Indian texts, the people had flying machines which
were called "Vimanas." The ancient Indian epic describes a Vimana
as a double-deck, circular aircraft with portholes and a dome, much as
we would imagine a flying saucer.
It flew with the "speed of the wind" and gave forth a "melodious
sound." There were at least four different types of Vimanas; some
saucer shaped, others like long cylinders ("cigar shaped airships").
The ancient Indian texts on Vimanas are so numerous, it would take volumes
to relate what they had to say. The ancient Indians, who manufactured
these ships themselves, wrote entire flight manuals on the control of
the various types of Vimanas, many of which are still in existence, and
some have even been translated into English.
The Samara Sutradhara is a scientific treatise dealing with every possible
angle of air travel in a Vimana. There are 230 stanzas dealing with the
construction, take-off, cruising for thousand of miles, normal and forced
landings, and even possible collisions with birds. In 1875, the Vaimanika
Sastra, a fourth century B.C. text written by Bharadvajy the Wise, using
even older texts as his source, was rediscovered in a temple in India.
It dealt with the operation of Vimanas and included information on the
steering, precautions for long flights, protection of the airships from
storms and lightening and how to switch the drive to "solar energy"
from a free energy source which sounds like "anti-gravity."
The Vaimanika Sastra (or Vymaanika-Shaastra) has eight chapters with
diagrams, describing three types of aircraft, including apparatuses that
could neither catch on fire nor break. It also mentions 31 essential parts
of these vehicles and 16 materials from which they are constructed, which
absorb light and heat; for which reason they were considered suitable
for the construction of Vimanas. This document has been translated into
English and is available by writing the publisher: VYMAANIDASHAASTRA AERONAUTICS
by Maharishi Bharadwaaja, translated into English and edited, printed
and published by Mr. G. R. Josyer, Mysore, India, 1979 (sorry, no street
address). Mr. Josyer is the director of the International Academy of Sanskrit
Investigation located in Mysore.

There seems to be no doubt that Vimanas were powered by some sort of
"anti-gravity." Vimanas took off vertically, and were capable
of hovering in the sky, like a modern helicopter or dirigible. Bharadvajy
the Wise refers to no less than 70 authorities and 10 experts of air travel
in antiquity. These sources are now lost.
Vimanas were kept in a Vimana Griha, a kind of hanger, and were sometimes
said to be propelled by a yellowish-white liquid, and sometimes by some
sort of mercury compound, though writers seem confused in this matter.
It is most likely that the later writers on Vimanas, wrote as observers
and from earlier texts, and were understandably confused on the principle
of their propulsion. The "yellowish-white liquid" sounds suspiciously
like gasoline, and perhaps Vimanas had a number of different propulsion
sources, including combustion engines and even "pulse-jet" engines.
It is interesting to note, that the Nazis developed the first practical
pulse-jet engines for their V-8 rocket "buzz bombs." Hitler
and the Nazi staff were exceptionally interested in ancient India and
Tibet and sent expeditions to both these places yearly, starting in the
30's, in order to gather esoteric evidence that they did so, and perhaps
it was from these people that the Nazis gained some of their scientific
According to the Dronaparva, part of the Mahabarata, and the Ramayana,
one Vimana described was shaped like a sphere and born along at great
speed on a mighty wind generated by mercury. It moved like a UFO, going
up, down, backwards and forewards as the pilot desired. In another Indian
source, the Samar, 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." Another work called the Samaranganasutradhara describes how
the vehicles were constructed. It is possible that mercury did have something
to do with the propulsion, or more possibly, with the guidance system.
Curiously, Soviet scientists have discovered what they call "age-old
instruments used in navigating cosmic vehicles" in caves in Turkestan
and the Gobi Desert. The "devices" are hemispherical objects
of glass or porcelain, ending in a cone with a drop of mercury inside.
It is evident that ancient Indians flew around in these vehicles, all
over Asia, to Atlantis presumably; and even, apparently, to South America.
Writing found at Mohenjodaro in Pakistan (presumed to be one of the "Seven
Rishi Cities of the Rama Empire") and still undeciphered, has also
been found in one other place in the world: Easter Island! Writing on
Easter Island, called Rongo-Rongo writing, is also undeciphered, and is
uncannily similar to the Mohenjodaro script. Was Easter Island an air
base for the Rama Empire's Vimana route? (At the Mohenjo-Daro Vimana-drome,
as the passenger walks down the concourse, he hears the sweet, melodic
sound of the announcer over the loudspeaker,
"Rama Airways flight number seven for Bali, Easter Island, Nazca,
and Atlantis is now ready for boarding. Passengers please proceed to gate
number..") in Tibet, no small distance, and speaks of the "fiery
chariot" thusly: "Bhima flew along in his car, resplendent as
the sun and loud as thunder... The flying chariot shone like a flame in
the night sky of summer ... it swept by like a comet... It was as if two
suns were shining. Then the chariot rose up and all the heaven brightened."
In the Mahavira of Bhavabhuti, a Jain text of the eighth century culled
from older texts and traditions, we read:
"An aerial chariot, the Pushpaka, conveys many people to the capital
of Ayodhya. The sky is full of stupendous flying-machines, dark as night,
but picked out by lights with a yellowish glare"
The Vedas, ancient Hindu poems, thought to be the oldest of all the Indian
texts, describe Vimanas of various shapes and sizes: the "ahnihotra-vimana"
with two engines, the "elephant-vimana" with more engines, and
other types named after the kingfisher, ibis and other animals.
Unfortunately, Vimanas, like most scientific discoveries, were ultimately
used for war. Atlanteans used their flying machines, "Vailixi,"
a similar type of aircraft, to literally try and subjugate the world,
it would seem, if Indian texts are to be believed. The Atlanteans, known
as "Asvins" in the Indian writings, were apparently even more
advanced technologically than the Indians, and certainly of a more war-like
temperment. Although no ancient texts on Atlantean Vailixi are known to
exist, some information has come down through esoteric, "occult"
sources which describe their flying machines. Similar, if not identical
to Vimanas, Vailixi were generally "cigar shaped" and had the
capability of maneuvering underwater as well as in the atmosphere or even
outer space. Other vehicles, like Vimanas, were saucer shaped, and could
apparently also be submerged.
According to Eklal Kueshana, author of "The Ultimate Frontier,"
in an article he wrote in 1966, Vailixi were first developed in Atlantis
20,000 years ago, and the most common ones are "saucer-shaped of
generally trapezoidal cross-section with three hemispherical engine pods
on the underside." "They use a mechanical antigravity device
driven by engines developing approximately 80,000 horse power."
The Ramayana, Mahabarata and other texts speak of the hideous war that
took place, some ten or twelve thousand years ago between Atlantis and
Rama using weapons of destruction that could not be imagined by readers
until the second half of this century.
The ancient Mahabharata, one of the sources on Vimanas,
goes on to tell the awesome destructiveness of the war:
"...(the weapon was) a single projectile
charged with all the power of the Universe.
An incandescent column of smoke and flame
As bright as the thousand suns rose in all its splendor...
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.
The 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..."
It would seem that the Mahabharata is describing an atomic war! References
like this one are not isolated; but battles, using a fantastic array of
weapons and aerial vehicles are common in all the epic Indian books. One
even describes a Vimana-Vailix battle on the Moon! The above section very
accurately describes what an atomic explosion would look like and the
effects of the radioactivity on the population. Jumping into water is
the only respite.
When the Rishi City of Mohenjodaro was excavated by archeologists in
the last century, they found skeletons just lying in the streets, some
of them holding hands, as if some great doom had suddenly overtaken them.
These skeletons are among the most radioactive ever found, on a par with
those found at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Ancient cities whose brick and
stone walls have literally been vitrified, that is-fused together, can
be found in India, Ireland, Scotland, France, Turkey and other places.
There is no logical explanation for the vitrification of stone forts and
cities, except from an atomic blast. Furthermore, at Mohenjo-Daro, a well
planned city laid on a grid, with a plumbing system superior to those
used in Pakistan and India today, the streets were littered with "black
lumps of glass." These globs of glass were discovered to be clay
pots that had melted under intense heat!
With the cataclysmic sinking of Atlantis and the wiping out of Rama with
atomic weapons, the world collapsed into a "stone age" of sorts,
and modern history picks up a few thousand years later. Yet, it would
seem that not all the Vimanas and Vailixi of Rama and Atlantis were gone.
Built to last for thousands of of years, many of them would still be in
use, as evidenced by Ashoka's "Nine Unknown Men" and the Lhasa
That secret societies or "Brotherhoods" of exceptional, "enlightened"
human beings would have preserved these inventions and the knowledge of
science, history, etc., does not seem surprising. Many well known historical
personages including Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Confucius, Krishna, Zoroaster,
Mahavira, Quetzalcoatl, Akhenaton, Moses, and more recent inventors and
of course many other people who will probably remain anonymous, were probably
members of such a secret organization.
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.
It has been suggested by many writers that these "Brotherhoods"
keep some of their Vimanas and Vailixi in secret caverns in Tibet or some
other place is Central Asia, and the Lop Nor Desert in western China is
known to be the center of a great UFO mystery. Perhaps it is here that
many of the airships are still kept, in underground bases much as the
Americans, British and Soviets have built around the world in the past
Still, not all UFO activity can be accounted for by old Vimanas making
trips to the Moon for some reason. Undoubtedly, some are from the Military
Governments of the world, and possibly even from other planets. Of course,
many UFO sightings are "swamp, gas, clouds, hoaxes, and hallucinations,
while there is considerable evidence that many UFO sightings, especially
"kidnappings" and the like, are the result of what is generally
called "telepathic hypnosis." One common thread that often runs
between "Alien kidnappings," "sex with aliens," and
other "close encounters of a third kind" is a buzzing in the
ears just before the encounter. According to many well informed people,
this is a sure sign of telepathic hypnosis."
