The Bermuda Triangle or the Devil’s Triangle issue is something which amuses everyone, the mysterious disappearance of numerous flights, ships in the area of Bermuda Triangle still remains one of he biggest untold mysteries in the history of the world.
Bermuda Triangle is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean. The vicinity of the Bermuda Triangle is one of the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world. The Bermuda Triangle spreads over 500,000 sq miles with three vertices, in Miami, Florida peninsula, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and in the mid-Atlantic island of Bermuda.
The unusual disappearance of ships was first reported in the 1950, later many reports emerged about the mysterious disappearance of Ships and flights passing the Bermuda Triangle area. Many theories were put forth by scientists and meteorologists saying that there exists a gravitational pull which may be the reason the Ships and flights are sucked into the bottom without a trace. In the year 1962, flight 19 had disappeared in the same area, it is said that the pilots speaking to the Air Traffic Control last words were “We are entering white water, nothing seems right. We don’t know where we are, the water is green, no white” before they lost contact. The officials at the Navy board of inquiry stated that the planes “flew off to Mars.” Many people suggested that there exists supernatural power which may be the reason the object vanished as soon as they entered the area. Recently it was said that the real reason for disappearance was the presence of hexagonal clouds creating 170 mph air bombs full of wind which may have caused the ships and planes to disappear. But this theory also was rejected by many scientists.
But now there has been a Hindu historical connection to the Bermuda Triangle mystery which seems to have some logic. It is well known fact that most of the Hindu customs and traditions are based on scientific facts and not myths. The Sanatana Dharma is a way of life that is synchronized with nature and every little thing we perform is connected to nature.
According to the Shiv Purana, the energy can be transformed into other forms, it can be hidden within spiritual powers or leashed in any form of matter on the planet, but cannot be destroyed. In scientific terms, this is nothing but the 1st law of Thermodynamics. The Bermuda Triangle which is also known as Devil’s Triangle surprisingly finds itself mentioned in the Ramayana. It states the story of a devil who tried to kill Lord Hanuman was the reason for the creation of Bermuda Triangle. The Demoness Simhika popularly known as Chhayagrahi is said to have resided in the Indian ocean who had acquired a boon of grasping any object towards her however powerful it might be, by Lord Brahma. Due to this reason no one dared to pass near her.
When Hanuman went in search of Sita, he is said to have passed the ocean where the Demoness Simhika was residing. Hanuman soon realized that his powers were being tied, his speed had reduced by an invincible power. When he looked around, he could see a floating demoness pulling him towards her. The demoness tried to eat Hanuman, but Lord Hanuman killed the devil by decreasing the size of his massive body and entered through her mouth, destroying internal organs. The daughter of Simhika was terrified with the incident and fled to unknown place which may the Bremuda triangle.
There is another story related to Bermuda Triangle, Ravan was a great devotee of Lord Shiva, with his dhyan, penance, austerity he is said to have earned many boons which were the main reason for his immense power. He was also gifted with a gem which helped in the regeneration of nectar at his navel, dictated that he could not be vanquished for as long as it lasted. Which meant no one could kill him unless the gem is taken back from him so the nectar could not be regenerated.
Just before the war between Lord Ram and Ravan, it seems that Shiva had appeared in a disguise of a saint and requested Ravan’s wife mandodari to grant him the gem as ‘Dakshina’. Mandodari very well knew that the secret of the gem was not known to anyone except Lord Shiva, herself and Ravan. She realized that it was the end of Ravan’s time and without refusing had granted the gem to Shiva.
During the war, Lord Ram had fired the Arrow of Brahma at his navel, Ravan fell on the ground and the nectar of immortality had came out his body and Ravan was killed.
So after the death of Ravan, the gem had to be placed in a zone that could absorb all the energy and uncontrollable power of the gem. Lord Hanuman who took the gem placed it in the deepest ocean to minimize its impact and power. The mani (gem) was apparently placed in the deepest core of Ocean which today is known as Bermuda Triangle.
Although there is no scientific evidence to back these claims, it makes one wonder if there is a possibility of such a gem being in existence since its a well known fact that gems do possess certain powers and energy in them. When people said that the Ram Setu existed, not many believed, but later scientific facts showed that floating stone did exist in the world and proved the bridge between Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu was man made and people did realize that Ramayan was not mere mythology. So there are chances that there exists a gem which may be the reason for the immense gravitational pull in Bermuda Triangle. More over, many theories were proposed that Bermuda Triangle possessed unexplained gravitational energy.
So before we reject the theory just because its linked to Ramayan, lets give a thought!
