Vaimānika Shāstra. The book of flying ships 15,000 years ago

Many Indians some religious texts and other classic literature such as the Ramayana, Mahabharata, Vaimanika-Shashtra, Puranas, Bhagaravata and many others deal with these flying machines defined in Sanskrit “Akasa yantrache”.

An analysis of these texts, performed by countless scholars and historians would appear that these machines, the Vimana precisely, other were not that sophisticated flying machines which sped commonly in the sky Earth 15,000 years ago.

The etymological meaning of the word Vimana is not very clear and it is wrapped in mystery Vimana probably derives from the Sanskrit terms: You and Man, that is “inhabited place that flies’ ;. For some scholars, the word would be translatable into Vimana: eggs bright even if the textual references to these objects define them as a means of transport used by the Devas, the gods, to move.

Continuing in the study of ancient texts show that there had Vimana young and some of these were real cities flying while small ones were for the sole use of the individual pilot. Another peculiarity of these stories almost “science fiction” is the peculiarity of the details, it is as if we were dealing with a real manual can explain the technology of these means so amazing and there are even some real courses flight.

The importance of details is essential because it leads us to reflect on how to about 15,000 years ago could only think and process concepts that only now can be found in modern technology.

The Vaimanika-Shashtra

The Vaimanika-Shashtra is a manuscript that was dictated by the Indian philosopher Pandit Subbaraya Sastry in 1918 through the divinatory practice of channeling and published in 1952 in Mysore.

This text describes in detail the construction of the ancient ships of the Gods of the Hindu Mahabharata, sophisticated weapons used in wars mythological present in the texts of ancient India, whose military technologies are incredibly similar to the latest technological breakthroughs of the last 70 years of history. In 1973, the original text was supplemented with illustrations of TK Ellappa, an engineer at the University of Bangalore, said that the Vimana as present in the original verses. These illustrations are also present in this edition Italian.

This incredible document, among other things written entirely in Sanskrit (language of the Gods) and not in Hindi, then translated into English, from the title expresses the desire to enter into a so far would seem to have existed 15,000 years where a technological reality limits imagination.

The literal translation of Vaimanika-Shashtra means “Aeronautical Practices” or “Astronautics”, this amazing manuscript includes technology Vimana and unlike the Ramayana in this case you do not treat more poems and tales of battles between various gods or legends, this text is just be a “manual of construction, maintenance and piloting” of these old aircraft.

Exposures that follow are intended to put some ‘of order in these complex issues and to provide, as far as possible, a key to modern to ancient Indian texts. To do this we begin to analyze the content of the manuscript Vaimanika-Shashtra, the purpose of this research is to find the elements of a technology disappearance and then let us analyze in principle the content of this manuscript.

Some technical data very detailed and interesting concern the propulsion system Vimana that seems to take place by internal combustion engines (in the texts is spoken of boilers) in some cases and in others, the propulsion occurs by means had a propeller that used as Fuel mercury.

This is something that perhaps should be interpreted not just literally, probably because mercury was used as energy storage. In other passages of the manuscript we talk about anti-gravity systems controlled by the power of the mind through meditation techniques.

A parenthesis is a must at this point to emphasize the fact that only now, studies are being made in this direction. The Air Force world have understood that to further optimize the controls fighter aircraft, further reducing the time between the command of the brain and mechanical action of the arm for example, you need to develop a technology that abandons the mechanical linkage. Are already in the experimental stage in fact driving devices fighter based on the displacement of the eyes of the pilot. The first experimental aircraft equipped with such electronic devices that read the position and shape of the pupil of the pilot are already flying in our skies, but with them opens the chapter that new drivers must be trained also for the control of emotions. Although the “modern” man arrived only in the third millennium to develop flying techniques based on emotions in the texts concerning the Vimana there was already a trace.

In other passages of the Indian manuscript also describes the inside of the cockpit where there are 3 seats 3 levers and 3 rings rotating these were used, respectively, the first to raise the vehicle, the second to give the direction, and the third to accelerate it.

But probably one of the most interesting passages of text Indian is what seems to describe the various alloys that were used for the construction of the Vimana and the process used to obtain them. In this regard we propose some steps of the manuscript.

“… Shounaka says there are three types of metals such Somaka, Soundaalika Mourthwika and that, properly mixed, giving rise to sixteen types of alloys that absorb heat very well. Manibhadra says that the metals that are bright are suited to producing airplanes and these metals are sixteen. Saambara says that sixteen metals formed from metal alloys of group Soma, Soundaala and Mourthwika are not conductors of heat and are useful for building vymaana … “. The text continues: “… In the seventh layer of the earth, in the third mine are the metals of the series Soma.They are thirty-eight types. In Lohatantra or Science of Metals is also said that in the third section of the seventh level of the earth metals Soma have five special qualities and are called beejalohas metals or base … “and follow” … In the seventh level metals are twenty-seven species. The third type of metals and base metals are said to have five quality … “.

To better interpret this part of Vymaanika-Shaastra is useful to know the rules by which the electrons are distributed around a core, and then use a system of classification of the elements such as the “table of the elements” of Mendeleev.

In chemistry yes knows that there are just seven distinct energy levels that can be occupied by electrons. It could therefore be assumed that the Indians 15,000 years ago knew the 7 energy levels of electrons and that obviously also knew the rules by which the electrons are arranged in space around the nucleus. In fact we know eight possible ways of arranging the electrons around the nucleus of an atom and why we split the table of Mendeleev in 8 groups.

Here is another significant step of Vymaanika-Shaastra:

“… The severity of the center of the earth, the earth’s gravity global solar flux, the air force, the force emanating from the planets and stars, the gravitational forces of the sun and moon and the gravitational forces of the Universe produce levels of the earth in the proportions 3, 8, 11, 5, 2, 6, 4, 9 … and cause the source of the metals … “.

The most plausible translation of the words of the text, if we take as a reference the chemistry and physics of today would be this:

“All the forces and interactions of the Universe, expressed by physical laws precise, they formed the different metals which are divided into eight basic types described by eight numbers. Each number seems to describe the electronic configuration of the first element of each group, the 3 is lithium, the ‘8 is oxygen, 5 is boron, 2 is helium, the 6 is carbon, the fourth is beryllium, fluorine is 9 and 11 is sodium but in its place there should be nitrogen (N = Nitrogen). ”

The latter is the only discrepancy which is located in this section of the manuscript. Perhaps the number 11 was poorly remembered and then misquoted in the book? Or simply mistranslated? Basically after 15,000 years we can also allow a small error. E ‘therefore very plausible that 15,000 years ago the Indians knew very well the chemistry and physical enough to be able to mix well the various metals to create special alloys suitable for the construction of the Vimana.

The secrets to drive the Vimana

Here is a list with the translation is from these manuscripts that cover techniques “secret” piloting Vimana or if we want some “tricks of the trade”:

MAANTRIKA: the invocation of the mantra that will allow one to obtain certain spiritual powers and hypnotic so that it can build flying vehicles indestructible

TAANTRIKA: the acquisition of some of tantric powers, the pilot can hide his “airplane”

Goodha: allows the driver to make his Vimana invisible to enemies.Adrishya get the same result by attracting force of the ethereal flow in the sky.

PAROKSHA: it enables the pilot to paralyze others Vimana and put them out of action.

APAROKSHA: the pilot can use this ability to project beams shining from the front of his ship to light his way.

VIROOPA KARANA: with this ability to command, the pilot may produce a temporary smoke, can load it with the warm waves of the sky and to take his ship a terrifying form that guarantees big thrills for those who look.

ROOPAANARA: may allow the Vimana to take forms such as the lion, tiger, snake, of a mountain to confuse observers.

SUROOPA: if someone can attract the 30 types of “force Karaka”, can make it look like the Vimana a heavenly damsel bedecked with flowers and jewels.

Pralaya: compresses the electric force through the five tubes aircraft so that the pilot can destroy everything as in a cataclysm. Vimukna sends a poisonous brew in the air to cause a state of total insensibility and coma.

Taara: this ability, once ruled, gives the pilot another method to evade the contact with the enemy or to hide their intentions to observers: Mixing with the ethereal force 10 parts of air power, strength aqueous 7 parts and 16 parts solar capacity, and projecting from the sides of the mirror starry through the front tube of the Vimana, the appearance of a starry sky is created. A modern interpretation might be that the aircraft invisible to radar.

SAARPA-gamana: this secret enables the pilot to attract the forces of the air, merge them with sunlight and pass the mixture through the center of the ship so that the Vimana will have a zigzag motion like a snake.
This last item is particularly interesting if we compare it to the most reliable UFO sightings. The proceeding zigzag is a major feature of authenticity in a UFO sighting.

ROOPAAKARSHANA: allows the pilot to see inside the Vimana enemy.

KRYAAGRAHANA: enables one to spy on all activities that occur under the earth.

Jalada Roopa: his instructions allow the pilot to know the correct proportions of certain chemical compounds that will enhance the Vimana, and will give the shape of a cloud.

The vimana for military use

In many Indian poems there is much talk of using Vimana by the gods as a means of transport to travel long distances, possibly even outside the solar system.
However, another important aspect is described in these Antici Indian texts or to use military in the millennial wars between the gods who have fought 15,000 years ago in the current Sri Lanka, in the Gobi desert etc ..

And ‘interesting to note that even today, in these places, there are archaeological finds of vitrified cities because of a probable nuclear war between the Gods. In fact, these poems, the Ramayana, Mahabharata etc.It talks about a millennial wars fought with terrible weapons which will provide some examples and that, as you will see, are attributable to arms today. Here is the list of some types of weapon:

The arc of GANDIVA: Able to shoot arrows chasing the enemy and when hitting the target generated a ‘wave of fire that incinerated as impressed.

It is not difficult to see in this translation missiles pointing thermal, chasing the target based on the heat emitted by the engines.

BHUCUNDI: a ‘weapon capable of hurling thunderbolts against enemies

SURADTSANA: A ‘weapon disc similar to the sun shining incinerated armies
The rod KALA: A weapon that killed at a distance

VAYAVYA ASTRA: Generate whirlwind

Kandarpa: Energizes excessively sexual desire

MURCHCHDHANA: because the temporary suppression of the sensations
in the latter two examples probably talking about bombs where chemical or biological, knowledge of chemistry by the ancient people here further confirmation.

SHABDAVEDITVA: An arrow chasing the sounds (even in this case it was a likely smart missile)

Finally we mention the most terrible weapon ever made the so-called weapons of chaos “..l’arma possessing the powers of the architect of the gods …”

Tvashtar: in practice our atomic bomb; the following is a translation text on the effects of this disturbing weapon:

“… Aswatthaman … threw an explosive column that opened in all directions, and caused a bright light, like a fire without smoke, which was succeeded by a shower of sparks that completely surrounded the army of PARHTA … the four cardinal points to a radius that the look could not embrace, were covered with dark … A violent wind began to blow and bad, nor the sun itself gave more heat … Struck and burnt the warriors fell like trees felled by a raging fire … .Grandi elephants, flayed by blaze , they started running around, throwing screams of terror … the air and water were poisoned … .Those who survived died shortly after: Their skin began to turn yellow and fall … the hair and nails fell … ”

If it was not a record of 15,000 years old would not be difficult to see in it a military report written after a visit to Hiroshima after the atomic explosion during World War II.

This raises a question that can not easily answered:

How could 15,000 years ago to know so well the details of an atomic explosion? If they were only science fiction stories (as some claim) as they would have done so well to describe the effects of a weapon invented only in our era? The writer has the belief that everything, even the legends and science fiction, find their roots in the truth.

Some secrets of Vimana fact, according to some sources, would seem to have been used in the former Soviet Union secret projects for the construction of anti-gravity devices intended for space vehicles.

Unfortunately there are still many questions about this ancient “technology out of time”, but the topic deserves the utmost seriousness and commitment on the part of any student to arrive, maybe one day, to reveal our unknown past.
