present the following as absolute proof that a more advanced Indian technological society existed thousands of years ago. I consider the sum of the evidence as incontrovertible.
Ancient Indian literature is teeming with references to flying vehicles, weapons of mass destruction and advanced technology. Now, modern man has called this mythology. However, the writers of these ancients epics and documents call it history. As soon as one discards this unfounded arrogance, and is ready to test the veracity of this literature as history, he/she will discover that the advanced technology is described in a practical and empirical sense as opposed to the theoretical or fictional sense. Not only that, it accords in large degrees with modern scientific principles and technology. Example: In the Vynamika Shastra, real-time television is produced by a set of mirrors that recieve light, then worked on by electricity, which is then sent through and a tube and an image is projected onto a chemically-coated screen. It need not be mentioned that this is the actual mechanism on which televisions work.
Now, if the technology described here is nothing but the imagination of a tree-dwelling primitive man, why does it work?
Weapons and Technology
In fact, this is not the only reference to technology that resembles our own. There are literally hundreds of references to technology like our own, and also, that surpass our own. They fall under two categories: Astras(weapons) and yantras(machines)
The types of weapons:
Each astra has it's own effects and they evoke the power of the elements they are associated with. The most feared weapons were the Narayanaastra and the Brahmaastra. They were the equivalent of our weapons of mass destruction.
The Narayanaastra was a thought-seeking weapon that would destroy anything that had a thought it was programmed to destroy. It is described being used in the Mahabharata war, as Krishna was familar with it, he asked his side to all cast down their weapons and surrender to the weapon, and it will not affect them.
The Brahmastra was the most powerful weapon known and was rarely ever used. It contained the power of the universe and it could cause massive destruction. It could be likened to a modern-day nuclear weapon, in fact, it probably IS a nuclear weapon. Here is a passage from the Drona Purva describing it's use:
Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful vimana
hurled a single projectile charged with the power
of the Universe. An incandescent column of
smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose with
all its splendor.
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
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 upward, showering dust and gravel.
Birds croaked madly... the very elements seemed disturbed.
The earth shook, scorched by the terrible violent heat of this
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. "
This description so accurately depicts the use of a nuclear weapon, it's effects and the fallout. In fact, the scientist on the Manhatten project who described the first nuclear test used a verse from this same passage.
Another description of a weapon that echoes modern missle technology is again during the Mahabharata. Where, the evil Salva is flying in an invisible vimana around the skies attacking Krishna's army. Krishna then deploys a special fire-weapon that seeks sound and is able to down Salvas Vimana and kill him.
We have have flying vehicles described over and over again in ancient Indian literature. Now, for the first time, see an ancient Indian document of aeronautical science, the Vyanmaika Shastra(VS) that gives us technical and schematical information on propulsion, energy, weapons, flight tactics, pilots food and clothes and metallurgy. This is the the most groud-breaking document ever and has been studied by many scholars, engineers and scientists from Europe and India from the early 20th century and onwards. It is currently being studied on the highest level of the Indian government and scientifiic community, at the Aeronautical Development Agency(ADA) of the Indian Ministry of Defence. Indian scientists have been able to succesfully recreate the prescribed alloys according to the formulas in the VS.
You can read a very fascinating thesis written on the VS here: http://ebusiness.ada.gov.in/library/libr...
Here is a primer demystisting the sankrit terms utilised in the VS to aid our understanding.Vymanika Shastra itself means 'treatise on aeronautics'. or "science of aeronautics"
The main sankrit terms
Bhaava: Being or becoming
Jyotibhaava: Becoming glowing
Roopaantra: Taking on a different appearance
Roopakarshana: Attracting an appearance
Surya: Sun or of relating to sun
Vayu: Wind or air
Vimana: Flying craft or bird-like
Viroopa karana: To make Bad form or shape
The flying vehicles, are called Vimanas, and used throughout vedic literature to denote flying vehicles of the gods and the ruling class.
They contain various yantras(machines/devices) with various functions in various parts of the vimanas. All of the major onboard yantras are comprised of darpanas(mirrors or lens), manis(crystals) and naalis(channels and outpius) The machines function on various sources of shakti(power)
The Darpana Yanatras(The mirror machines/devices)
There are 8 Darpana Yantras and belong to 4 types of function:
optical stealth, holography and cloaking
Laser and directed energy weapons
The mirrors are used for light related functions to either deflect, reflect, redirect, attract or amplify light and energy beams. In the same way lasers, holograms and solar cells work.
The mirrors are manufactured through special chemical processes using highly optically sensitive organic and inorganic substances.
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.
The Shakitis(The power sources)
There are 7 sources of Shaktis:
TUNDILA - UDGAMA SHAKTI
PANJARA - PANJARA SHAKTI
AMSHUPA (SHAKTIPA) - SOLAR POWER ABSORPTION
APAKARSHAKA - ABSORPTION OF POWER FROM ALIEN VIMANAS
SAANDHAANIKA - GROUP OF 12 FORCES
DAARPANIKA - KUNTINEE SHAKTI
SHAKTI PRASAVIKA -MAIN MOTIVE POWER
The above terms are nebulous and do not shed much light on the types of propulsion these Vimanas used. However, it can be said, that it was unconventional. The predominant energy sources described are solar rays, crystals, electric power and ether winds. There is also a mention of a "solar glow" which could possibly mean nuclear fusion power.
Dr David Childress also suggests that a mercury propulsion system was used, where the latent power of mercury was used to generate the energy to propel the crafts.
The vimanas's aerodynamics as described in the shastra are similar to the aerodynamics of the common UFO. So some kind of electromagnetic field propulsion maybe at play. It should be noted that there were many types of Vimanas and they all used different forms of propulsion for different roles.
Motionless or hovering
Other Yantras in the Vimana:
Guhagarbha Aadarsha Yantra:
This device is 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.
This device is 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.
This device is used in listening to sound waves in a range of 27 miles. It works on some kind of rotary component sensitive to sound.
This is the most staggering find I have come upon. It appears that the ancient Indians also had the ability to clone humans(it's very ironic that contemporary India is taking the lead in stem-cell research) In the Mahabharata, the queen Ghandari, who had pregnancy problems and after 2 years bore a pinda(ball of flesh) which was then handed over to a sage. He divided this ball of flesh into 100 parts and treated them with a chemical process, then put each part into a sealed cooling container for 2 years, from which 100 male babies were created.
According to the Indian epics Mahabharata(10,000 - 3000 years ago) and Ramayana(1.2 million years ago) engineering was far more advanced than modern civilization. The Ramayana describes the construction of a bridge from India to Sri Lanka. While the Mahabharata describes the construction of an entire island city in record time and also described it sinking into the ocean after the death of Krishna. Both can be verified by modern archeology.
The fabled bridge that was constructed by an ape race on the orders of Lord Rama, in the Treta yuga, which according to Indian time or yuga cycles, happened 1.2 million years ago, was recently discovered by a NASA space satellite. It has been dated 1.2 million years, thus putting it in the time-frame of it's so-called construction. The bridge, called Adams bridge, a 30km long chain of shoals has been characterized to have a man-made structure. Here is a passage from the Srimad Bhagvatam detalling the construction of the bridge.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam First Canto, Chapter 3, text 24, 1972)
Here's the account from the "Ramayana" of Sage Valmiki:
"At Rama's command, those lions among the monkeys entered the mighty forest with alacrity in hundreds and thousands on every side and those leaders on the simian tribes, tearing up the rocks, which in size they resembled, and the trees also dragged them to the sea and they covered the ocean with Sala, Ashvararna, (list of tree names).Those foremost monkeys transported those trees, with or without roots, bearing them like so many standards of Indra (the king of heaven) and they heaped (list of tree names) here and there. With the aid of mechanical devices, those powerful colossi dug up stones as big as elephants and rocks, and the water suddenly spouted into the air only to fall instantly. Thereafter those monkeys churned up the sea by rushing into it on all sides pulling on the chains.
"That immense causeway constructed by Nala in the bosom of the sea was built by the arms of those monkeys of formidable exploits and it extended over a hundred leagues.
"Some brought trunks of trees and others set them up; it was by hundreds and thousands that those monkeys, like unto giants, made use of reeds, logs and blossoming trees to construct that bridge, rushing hither and thither with blocks of stone resembling mountains or the peaks of crags, which, flung into the sea, fell with a resounding crash.
"The first day those monkeys resembling elephants, or immense energy, full of high spirits and exceedingly merry, erected fourteen leagues of masonry. The second day, those highly active monkeys of formidable stature set up twenty leagues. Bestirring themselves, those giants threw twenty-one leagues of structure over the ocean on the third day and on the fourth, working feverishly, they built up twenty-two leagues in extent. The fifth day, those monkeys, industrious workers, reached to twenty-three leagues distance from the further shore.
"That fortunate and valiant son of Vishvakarma (architect of the demigods), leader of the monkeys, constructed a causeway worthy of his sire over the ocean and that bridge erected by Nala over the sea, the haunt of whales, dazzling in its perfection and splendor, was like the constellation of Svati in space.
"Then the gods, Gandharvas, Siddhas (living beings superior to humans) and supreme Rishis (great sages) assembled in the sky, eager to see that masterpiece, and the gods and Gandharvas gazed on that causeway, so difficult of construction, that was ten leagues in width and a hundred in length built by Nala.
"Those monkeys thereafter dived, swam and shouted at the sight of that unimaginable marvel that was almost inconceivable and caused one to tremble! And all beings beheld that causeway thrown over the ocean and by hundreds and thousands of kotis (millions), those monkeys, full of valor, having built that bridge over the immense repository of waters, reached the opposite shore.
"Vast, well-constructed, magnificent with its wonderful paved floor, solidly cemented, that great causeway like unto a line traced on the waves, resembled the parting of a woman's hair.
Here is the actual photograph from the NASA satellite:
The island city of Dwarika's construction is recorded in the Mahabharata - as is it's sinking into the sea. It was found only recently by pioneering team led by India's most reveered and respected archeologist Dr S.R. Rao and is heralded as the biggest archeological find after the discovery of Troy. It was a submerged and lost city on the west coast of India. Pottery found there has been carbon dated to more than 7000 years old. This proves the historicity of the Mahabharata.
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. The most accurate figure for the speed of light as of today is 186,282 miles per second.
This means the Rig Veda figure is 99% 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.
In conclusion: Whom we think to be a tree-dwelling primitive man with an active imagination, has written about: engineering, genetic engineering, lasers, nuclear weapons, directed energy weapons, psychtronic weapons, television, holograms, cloaking, scanning, air force tactics, alloy fabrication, electricity, solar eletricity, inertia propulsion and calculated the speed of light. This was no tree-dwelling civilization. We are talking about a very sophisticated and advanced civilization that far surpasses our own.
It is harrowing to think that such an advanced society would just disappear. If they could disappear, then so could we. In light of this overwhelming proof, I think we need a huge overhaul of our current view of human history and it's origins. The implications are earth-shattering.
