flying a swift and powerful vimana
hurled a single projectile
Charged with all the power of the Universe.
An incandescent column of smoke and flame
As bright as the thousand suns
Rose in all its splendour...
a perpendicular explosion
with its billowing smoke clouds...
...the cloud of smoke
rising after its first explosion
formed into expanding round circles
like the opening of giant parasols...
..it was an unknown weapon,
An iron thunderbolt,
A gigantic messenger of death,
Which reduced to ashes
The entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
...The corpses were so burned
As to be unrecognizable.
The hair and nails fell out;
Pottery broke without apparent cause,
And the birds turned white.
After a few hours
All foodstuffs were infected...
...to escape from this fire
The soldiers threw themselves in streams
To wash themselves and their equipment.
Ancient verses from the Mahabharata: (6500 B.C.?)
Ancient alien encounters are what I like to research most. One of my favorite pass times is looking at ancient mythology and seeing if what they
describe as old gods and signs in the sky could be ET in nature. This excerpt is from the mahabharata a very old legend in Indian culture. It's a
very long epic about a struggle between good and evil. In it are mentioned "vimanas"
There are many definitions for vimana, but they all branch from "a vehicle or chariot capable of flight". Keep in mind these are descriptions from
ancient times when, as far as we know, man didnt have any flying machines.
The creepiest part about this excerpt is the weapon it describes. It sounds very very similar to an atomic bomb of sorts. At first glance I wouldu say
th description was that of a meteor, but take note that it mentions the projectile was fired from a vimana and towards teh end it mentions the
infection of food stuffs which coincides with a radioactive fallout. The description of the smoke is also very peculisar and sounds very much like
that of a mushroom cloud.
Time travelers? Alien war? Perhaps both and/or more?
