There are many common myths and legendary stories that mention remarkable flying machines and how ancient people travelled great distances through the air.
Many experts believe that the “Vaimanika Shastra” is a sacred book that talks about “ships” that could travel to different places on our planet, but could also travel into space.
Sanskrit is regarded as the ancient language in Hinduism where it was used as a means of communication and dialogue by the Hindu Celestial Gods, and then by the Indo-Aryans. Sanskrit is also widely used in Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. The term “Sanskrit” is derived from the conjoining of “Sam” meaning “entirely”, and “krit” that indicates “done”. Thus, the name indicates perfectly or entirely done in terms of communication, reading, hearing and express an emotion. An extraordinarily complex language with a vast vocabulary which it is still widely used today in the reading of sacred texts and hymns.
According to Dr.V Raghavam, a well-known Sanskrit scholar and musicologist who have been awarded Sahitya academy award for Sanskrit in 1966, quotes that “50 years of researching this ancient work convinces me that there are living beings on other planets and that they were visiting the earth as far back as 4000 B.C”.
According to experts, the Vedas speak about two categories of flying objects that visited ancient India in the distant past.
These mysterious objects are described in Sanskrit writing, where you can find incredible devices and technologies that were not supposed to be present on our planet for thousands of years.
We find more descriptions of mysterious devices, which surpass technological understanding of ancient man, in the Mahabharata, the Puranas, and in the Ramayana.
One of the most interesting passages in the Ramayana reads:
“The Puspaka car that resembles the Sun and belongs to my brother was brought by the powerful Ravan; that aerial and excellent car going everywhere at will…. that car resembling a bright cloud in the sky.” And the King (Rama) got in, and the excellent car at the command of the Raghira rose up into the higher atmosphere.”
Furthermore, in the Mahabharata we find texts that read the following:
“Gurkha flying in his swift and powerful Vimana hurled against the three cities of the Vrishis and Andhakas a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and fire, as brilliant as ten thousands suns, rose in all its splendor. It was the unknown weapon, the Iron Thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas.”
In the Sanskrit Samaraanganasutraadhaara it is written:
“Strong and durable must the body of the Vimana be made, like a great flying bird of light material. Inside one must put the mercury engine with its iron heating apparatus underneath. By means of the power latent in the mercury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion, a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in the sky. The movements of the Vimana are such that it can vertically ascend, vertically descend, and move slanting forwards and backwards. With the help of the machines, human beings can fly in the air and heavenly beings can come down to earth”.
Our ancestors had already laid the base for us before we actually got into inventing the modern technologies in the modern times. And these ancient scriptures lay a staunch proof to this fact.
