I have some doubts about that article.
I am not surprised there.
... and from his young age was attracted by the Vaimanika Sastra (Aeronautical Science) expounded by the great Indian sage Maharishi
The only sources that mention this great sage are reprints of your article. Surely such a famous book would be well known by the Indians. So
why isn't it mentioned frequently elsewhere?
It's not a famous Indian article. As I said ancient Indian society was a bizaree dichatomy. This kind of knowledge was only for the elite. Further,
Indians do know about their past history and accept it as fact. It is only those trained in the western scientific doctrines that do not accept it,
until now, because they been able to verify it with the same.
And you might find this page interesting:
In fact, you might find this quote interesting:
There is one book entitled Vaimanika-sastra that was dictated in trance during this century and purports to be a transcription of an ancient work
preserved in the Akashic record."
"The medium in this case was Pandit Subbaraya Sastry, a 'walking lexicon gifted with occult perception', who began to dictate the
Vaimanika-sastra to Mr. Venkatachala Sarma on August 1, 1918. The complete work was taken down in 23 exercise books up to August 23, 1923. In
1923, Subbaraya Sastry also had a draftsman prepare some drawings of the vimanas according to his instructions."
I would like you to further corroborate this article, as it is from a uncredible site. The site on at the Indian ADA mentions the Vyaamnika Shastra
around 1900 to 1923. Otherwise, it is already shown that Shastry and Maharishi Dayanada had already made mention of it the Indian
scientist Dr Talpede, who constructed an ion engine and flew the first plane in 1985 in Bombay.
I have already mentioned all the evidence for the veracity of the VS in the my previous postings:
B. The Author Maharishi Baradwaja was a famous a sage that lived in the Hindu Dvarpa and Treta Yuga. He is in the ansectory of Guru
Dronacharya, who lived in the age of the Mahabharata. At least 3000 years ago. He penned the Yantra Sarwaswa(all about machines) which is a masterwork
on science, of which the science of aeronautics or VS is a part. However, the Yantra Sarsawa has not been found. Baradwaja is also the common author
of the Anshu Bodhini(an ancient cosmological work) and Srauta Shastra.
C.Bodhandana, a 10th century scholar wrote vriti or commentory on the VS. This suggests that at the very least the VS is 1000 years old.
In the late 19th century, a textural reference is made to the VS by Maharshi Dayananda saraswati, whom had given clarification on the direction of
thrust of propulsive devices of Vimanas quoting Rig-Bhashya Bhumika. This was dated to be in 1875.
D. The VS materialised in manuscript form between 1908 to 1918 by mystic scholar Anekal Subbaraya Shastry. Anekal claimed to have recieved knowledge
of the VS, among other things in a spiritual awakening . He first mentioned the VS to a scientist Dr. Talpade in India in the late 19th
The Akshakic records is a similar to a concept Carl Jung theorized, called the collective unconsciousness. That is all events in our space-time are
recorded in a layer of space-time that we can access.
Please note that "mixing with ethereal force 10 parts of air force" certainly isn't chemistry. It doesn't say whether those parts are
"parts by weight" or "parts by volume" -- a huge oversight and the difference is considerable and disastrous.
That's not chemistry. That's Silly Science.
It sounds like silly science to us, because we do not recognize what the author is referring to. Nor have we discovered the ether, though are possibly
close with vacuum field physics.
Indian elements were catorgized under 5 headings: Earth, Air/wind, water, fire and ether. Now each had their own type. Suppose we had our own type
system according to the 5 elements. For instance, let's look at fire and air.
What types are there to fire, which is nothing more than electromagnetic energy and what types of air/wind is there:
Types of fire:
Type 1: Radio
Type 2: Microwave
Type 3: Infrared
Type 4: Visible Light
Type 5: Ultraviolet
Type 6: X rays
Type 7: Gamma Rays
Types of Air/wind
Type 1: Vacuum
Type 2: Troposphere
Type 3: Stratosphere
Type 4: Mesosphere
Type 5: Ionosphere
Type 6: Exosphere
Now, if I wrote a description similar to the VS and said this:
By using the electric power and mixing it with the 1st type of wind in a glass tube, and striking the xy-loha, 6th type of fire will be released, by
passing this to a mirror and projecting this onto a screen coated in special chemical mixture, it will reveal the insides of an organism.
Now, that is written in such a way. That nobody could make use of it, without refering to an external table that contains the required information.
This is to safe guard technology from it falling in the wrong hands. We will see this to be true in the following secrets in the VS:
By attracting the thirteen kind of karaka force mentioned in ‘Karaka prakarana’ applying snow-surcharged air and projecting it on the right
side of the vimana and focusing on it the suragha beam, a heavenly damsel bedecked with flowers and jewels will appear to onlookers of the
It becomes clear that to know what the 13th kind of "Karaka" force is, we need to refer to something else. It also mentions Surangha beam, which is
crucial to producing a hologram of a heavenly damsel bednecked with flowers and jewels. Now, it would appear, that the Surgangha beam is already
preset with this hologram, or produced shapes of light, which produce the hologram which only becomes activated when a force is passed through it.
We see various kinds of mentions of types
of forces, powers and elements in the VS:
If you read the thesis I presented on the VS from the ADA, it does show, that the ancient Indians understood that the atmosphere is divided into 5
layers. Perhaps, that is what types of wind refers too. In some secrets of the VS it mentions how to tap certain winds as energy. If the Vimana was
flying in the Ionosphere, it could use the free electrons and plasma as a source of energy.
Now, we also hear that the technology was so advanced in that age, that weapons had their own intelligence and had a telepathic interface, weather
could be controlled, humans could be cloned in the lab, a special vehicle could travel in the air, in the sea and in space. We are not at this level
of technology so we are not qualified to pass judgement.
However, at least 7 new inventions have been made from the VS from very credible sources from the Indian scientific community and corroborated by the
ADA(Aeronautics Defence Agency) which include the following:
1. Dr Talpede's Merucry Ion engine 1895
2. A novel spectrometer/monochromeater
3. Infrared transparent material
4. Chumbakamani, Paragrandhika-drava alloys.
The following is a report from an Indian scientist Dr. C.S.R. Prabhu:
5. Tamogarbha loha: Already produced in the laboratory, light in weight, black in color, found to be resistant to acids. Displayed high level of
absorption for laser light (from red Ruby laser - as observed by Prof. Robert Anderson of San Jose State University during his visit to India in
December 1991). Some chemical and other properties found to be unique-patentable new alloy. This alloy was used in 'Tamo Yantra' in the Vimana
Shastra for the purposes of absorption of light escaping from a photochemical reaction which resulted in absorption of light, thereby generating
6. Pancha Loha (not the Panchaloha for making idols): A copper alloy, which is highly malleable and also highly corrosion resistant to moisture and
salt (NaCl) water. Already produced and characterized to possess golden yellow Color (Hema Varnam). High machinability and on microstructure analysis
found to be single-phase alloy with high malleability ('mridulam') and not found listed in ASM Reference (1988).
7. Arama Tamra: A copper alloy zinc, lead and iron of light absorption. Already produced and possesses golden yellow to reddish tinge. Brittle, light
and hard, on microstructure analysis found to be two-phase alloy. Very hard, Young's modulus 16.9 (described in Sanskrit text as 'Dridham') not
listed in ASM Reference (1988).
An article published by the Deccan Herland in 2002 on the materials developed:
Stealth Bomber from Shastra
From the Deccan Herald, Dated Nov. 2, 2002
By Rajesh Parishwad, DH News Service BANGALORE, Nov 1:
A glass-like material based on technology found in an ancient Sanskrit text that could ultimately be used in a stealth bomber (the material
cannot be detected by radar) has been developed by a research scholar of Benaras Hindu University.
Prof M A Lakshmithathachar, Director of the Academy of Sanskrit Research in Melkote, near Mandya, told Deccan Herald that tests conducted with
the material showed radars could not detect it. "The unique material cannot be traced by radar and so a plane coated with it cannot be detected using
radar," he said.
The academy had been commissioned by the Aeronautical Research Development Board, New Delhi, to take up a one-year study, 'Non-conventional
approach to Aeronautics,' on the basis of an old text, Vaimanika Shastra, authored by Bharadwaj.
Though the period to which Bharadwaj belonged to is not very clear, Prof Lakshmithathachar noted, the manuscripts might be more than 1,000
years old. The project aims at deciphering the Bharadwaj's concepts in aviation. However, Prof Lakshmithathachar was quick to add that a
collaborative effort from scholars of Sanskrit, physics, mathematics and aeronautics is needed to understand Bharadwaj's shastra.
The country's interest in aviation can be traced back over 2,000 years to the mythological era and the epic Ramayana tells of a
supersonic-type plane, the Pushpak Vimana, which could fly at the speed of thought. "The shastra has interesting information on vimanas (airplanes),
different types of metals and alloys, a spectrometer and even flying gear," the professor said. The shastra also outlines the metallurgical method to
prepare an alloy very light and strong which could withstand high pressure.
He said Prof Dongre of BHU had brought out a research paper Amshubondhini after studying Vaimanika Shastra and developed the material. "There
have been sporadic efforts to develop aeronautics in the country's history. There has never been a holistic approach to it. Vaimanika Shastra throws
up many interesting details that can benefit Indian aviation programme," the director added.
Prof Lakshmithathachar rubbished the tendency among certain scholars to discount such ancient Sanskrit texts and said, "Why would our scholars
want to cheat future generations? Unless it was important, nothing was written in the old days. The fact that there exists manuscripts indicates the
significance." The academy has also embarked on other projects including 'Indian concept of Cosmology' with Indian Space Research Organisation,
'Iron & Steel in Ancient India - A Historical Perspective' with the Steel Authority of India Limited, and 'Tools & Technology of Ancient India.'
From the above we can see the biggest companies in the world are also working on the VS, including ISRO, the Indian equivalent of NASA.
In fact, the devices mentioned in the VS, can also be corrobrated by the Vedas themselves, that describe these vehicles:
The Rig Veda, the oldest document of the human race includes references to the following modes of transportation:
Jalayan - a vehicle designed to operate in air and water (Rig Veda 6.58.3).
Kaara- Kaara- Kaara- a vehicle that operates on ground and in water. (Rig Veda 9.14.1).
Tritala- Tritala- Tritala- a vehicle consisting of three stories. (Rig Veda 3.14.1).
Trichakra Ratha - Trichakra Ratha - Trichakra Ratha - a three-wheeled vehicle designed to operate in the air. (Rig Veda 4.36.1);.
Vaayu Ratha- Vaayu Ratha- Vaayu Ratha- a gas or wind-powered chariot. (Rig Veda 5.41.6).
Vidyut Ratha- Vidyut Ratha- Vidyut Ratha- a vehicle that operates on power. (Rig Veda 3.14.1).
As to the book, if you look around for proof of its existance (and it does exist in modern forms), you will find various dates ascribed to when
it was written and how it was found and who channeled it. This is another emblem of a fraud.
Well, that is why it would be wise to refer to the original source on ADA. If you go to various sources on the web, they all would be dealing with 2nd
hand information and put their own spin on it
The evidence is simply overwhelming. The only way you can argue a case for fraud is to argue that the entire Indian scientific community, government
and space research organization are lying.
We all know when the various books of the Bible were written, and there's good consensus about that. We know when various Sutras were written
and other documents of the Hindu faith. They're listed, discussed, and there's a lot of scholarly work on them. This one appears out of nowhere
with rather wild tales associated with it and strange "proofs."
No we don't. Even to date, the Aryan invasion theory and Max Mullers theories are taught as facts in western history. That has been debunked recently
and it also been proven that some of the most famous previous "scholars" were racist and had ulterior motives. Indian history is being studied again
by Indian scientists historians and archeologists, and they are uncovering their real history. I don't think I have to argue for the fact that
Indians hold a bit more credibility for their own history, than some foreign bodies too.
As far as I am concerned, considering the overwhelming evidence, that there was indeed a technologically advanced society in the past. To dismiss all
this evidence, would be fool-hardy. Ancient Indian science and metaphysics may bring about a scientific and cultural revolution. In fact it already
is. We all gain. Why fight the truth?
