The Vimanas - The Ancient Flying Machines
There are reference to flying machines in the temple carvings and in theancient writings.
The images found on the ceiling beams of a 3000-year old New KingdomTemple, located several hundred miles south of Cairo and the Giza Plateau,at Abydos resembles modern day Aircrafts.Reference to ancient Indian flying vehicles comes from ancient Indiansources, many are the well known ancient Indian Epics, and there areliterally hundreds of them. Most of them have not even been translated intoEnglish yet from the old sanskrit.It is claimed that a few years ago, the Chinese discovered some sanskritdocuments in Lhasa, Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarhto be translated. Dr. Ruth Reyna of the University said recently that thedocuments contain directions for building interstellar spaceships!Their method of propulsion, she said, was "anti-gravitational" and wasbased upon a system analogous to that of "laghima," the unknown power ofthe ego existing in man's physiological makeup, "a centrifugal force strongenough to counteract all gravitational pull."According to Hindu Yogis, it is this "laghima" which enables a person tolevitate. 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 bethousands of years old. The manuscripts were also said to reveal the secretof "antima"; "the cap of invisibility" and "garima"; "how to become as heavyas a mountain of lead."
19th Century Flying references
Shivkar Bapuji Talpade born in 1864, was a Sanskrit scholar. His birth placeis Chirabazar at Dukkarwadi in Bombay. From his young age was attractedby the Vaimanika Sastra (Aeronautical Science) expounded by the greatIndian sage Maharishi Bhardwaja.One western scholar of Indology Stephen-Knapp has tried to explain whatTalpade did. According to Knapp, the Vaimanika Shastra describes indetail, the construction of what is called, the mercury vortex engine theforerunner of the ion engines being made today.Shivkur Bapuji Talpade's unmanned aircraft flew to a height of 1500 feetbefore crashing down and the historian. Knapp adds that additionalinformation on the mercury engines can be found in the ancient Vedic textcalled Samaranga Sutradhara. This text also devotes 230 verses, to theuse of these machines in peace and war.The Indologist William Clarendon, who has written down a detaileddescription of the mercury vortex engine in his translation of SamarangaSutradhara quotes thus 'Inside the circular air frame, place the mercury-engine with its solar mercury boiler at the aircraft center. By means of thepower latent in the heated mercury which sets the driving whirlwind inmotion a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in a most marvelousmanner.Four strong mercury containers must be built into the interior structure.When these have been heated by fire through solar or other sources thevimana (aircraft) develops thunder-power through the mercury. It is also
added that this success of an Indian scientist was not liked by the Imperialrulers. Warned by the British Government the Maharaja of Baroda stoppedhelping Talpade. His efforts to make known the greatness of VedicShastras was recognised by Indian scholars, who gave him the title ofVidya Prakash Pra-deep.
Anti-Gravity Studies
The Indian Emperor Ashoka started a "Secret Society of the Nine UnknownMen": great Indian scientists who were supposed to catalogue the manysciences. Ashoka kept their work secret because he was afraid that theadvanced science catalogued by these men, culled from ancient Indiansources, would be used for the evil purpose of war, which Ashoka wasstrongly against, having been converted to Buddhism after defeating a rivalarmy in a bloody battle. The "Nine Unknown Men" wrote a total of ninebooks, presumably one each.Book number was "The Secrets of Gravitation!" This book, known tohistorians, 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 cancertainly undertand Ashoka's reasoning for wanting to keep suchknowledge a secret, assuming it exists. if the Nazis had such weapons attheir disposal during World War II. Ashoka was also aware devastatingwars using such advanced vehicles and other "futuristic weapons" that haddestoryed the ancient Indian "Rama Empire" several thousand yearsbefore..According to ancient Indian texts, the people had flying machines whichwere called "Vimanas." The ancient Indian epic describes a Vimana as adouble-deck, circular aircraft with portholes and a dome, much as we wouldimagine 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").In 1875, the Vaimanika Sastra, a fourth century B.C. text written byBharadvajy the Wise, using even older texts as his source, wasrediscovered in a temple in India. It dealt with the operation of Vimanas andincluded information on the steering, precautions for long flights, protectionof 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."
