Air chariots are described in Vedic literature as being propelled by pulses, taking off vertically, and flying in all directions. But whence do they originate?
The Vedic texts originate from the 12th century B.C., and others believe they are much earlier. Archaeologists have discovered towns in the north of India that is at least five thousand years old.
These cities were unusual in that they appeared to be entirely contemporary, with drainage, avenues, irrigation, and electricity, despite the fact that people were intended to live in a very basic fashion at the time.
The Vedas were most likely written at the height of Indian civilization, as they mention various flying inventions that could only have existed in a very advanced culture.
Despite the fact that no remains of flying objects were ever discovered during the excavations, the details of the descriptions provided by ancient Hindu texts allow for a variety of interpretations, one of which is that this civilization learned everything they knew about science and technology from extraterrestrial visitors.
What exactly are Vimanas?
The flying devices mentioned in the Vedas are known as vimanas. There are many various varieties of them, but the majority of the descriptions are comparable to recent UFO encounters recorded throughout the world.
They are described in ancient Sanskrit scriptures as cylindrical cylinders made of steel or gold that can fly in all directions and reach distances as great as star regions; some of them can be utilized in both air and water and can turn invisible when needed.
They might be powered by motors, mercury, or pulses, and some of them were large enough to transport thousands of people through the air.
The Vymaanika-Shaastra is a treatise authored by Bharadvajy in the fourth century B.C. It describes how to fly a vimana, how to defend oneself from storms in short flights, and how to utilize solar energy. It is based on the Vedas.
It also includes a list of the materials required to construct the flying devices that absorb heat and light. Maharishi Bharadvaaja translated this paper into English in 1979, and Mr. G.R. Josyer published it in India under the title Vymaanidashaastra Aeronautics.
The Vedic Literature’s Air Chariots
The vimanas are mentioned in several ancient Sanskrit texts:
– “two-story sky chariots with many windows, ejecting red flame, that race up into the sky until they resemble comets… to the sun and star regions…” (Mahabharata)
– “Now the magnificence of Vata’s chariot!” It breaks, and thunderous is its sound; it approaches heaven, makes light lurid [a red hot glow], and whirls dust on the earth.” (Vedas Rig Vedas)
– “The Pushpaka, an airborne chariot, transports a large number of people to Ayodhya’s capital. The sky is filled with incredible flying vehicles, black as darkness yet illuminated by yellowish lights.” (Mahavira)
– “Bhima soared on his Vimana on an immense beam that was as bright as the sun and sounded like thunder in a storm.” (Ramayana)
– “As the air rushes uncontrollably in every direction, he journeyed across the numerous worlds in this manner.” He excelled even the demigods as he sped through the skies in that vast and magnificent aerial home that could fly at his command.” Shrimad Bhagavatam (Shrimad Bhagavatam)
Ancient India had extraterrestrial visitors.
According to the Rig-Veda, an ancient Indian ruler called Salva purchased a flying machine from Maya Danava of Taltala, another planetary system. This, along with many other passages in the Sanskrit literature, suggests that alien life was well-known at the time.
One could argue that the references to flying machines and beings from other planets are merely symbolic representations of Hindu gods, but the fact that Indian civilization knew about different planetary systems, acknowledged life on other planets and could imagine air machines powered by engines and pulses five thousand years ago is intriguing enough.
It’s crucial to remember that the western world just recently acknowledged that the earth isn’t the center of the universe, and some people still find it difficult to fathom life on other planets.
Many think that if ancient India was as advanced as excavations suggest, it is not implausible that these people possessed flying devices that could go to other planets and communicate with people from other solar systems.
According to the Ramayana, the Rama dominion would have flourished fifteen thousand years ago, at the same period as Atlantis. Both civilizations had a similar myth about a sophisticated region that was visited by the gods but then vanished without a trace.
Is the same catastrophe that sank Atlantis beneath the waves also responsible for the demise of India’s high-tech society? The solution can be found in between the lines of old Sanskrit writings.
