the recent bestseller the Da Vinci Code and what it’s implications
are for Christianity. However, did you know that India has it’s own little
known about and little talked about ‘code’ and that whoever cracks this
code will not only change the future of the planet but will go onto rule

thought provoking. All comments appreciated.
1. Vimanas, Space craft and extraordinary weapons referred to
in the Indian epics
Indian texts on Vimanas are so numerous it would take several books to
relate what they have to say.
describes a Vimana as a double-deck, circular (cylindrical) aircraft with
portholes and a dome. It flew with the speed of the wind and gave forth a
melodious sound (a humming noise?).
texts are filled with references to Gods who fought battles in the sky
using Vimanas equipped with weapons as deadly as any we can deploy in
these more enlightened times. For example, there is a passage in the
Ramayana which 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."
Mahabharatra, Asura Maya had a Vimana measuring twelve cubits in
circumference, with four strong wheels.
does have a highly detailed story in it of a trip to the moon in a Vihmana
(or "Astra"), and in fact details a battle on the moon with an "Asvin"
airship. This is a small bit of evidence of anti-gravity and aerospace
technology used by Indians.
Mahabhrata records the use of other deadly weapons. 'Indra's Dart'
operated via a circular 'reflector'. When switched on, it produced a
'shaft of light' which, when focused on any target, immediately 'consumed
it with its power'.
Krishna, is pursuing his enemy, Salva, in the sky, when
Salva's Vimana, the Saubha is made invisible in some way. Undeterred,
Krishna immediately fires off a special weapon: 'I quickly laid on an
arrow, which killed by seeking out sound'.
terrible weapons are described, quite matter of factly, in the
Mahabharata, but the most fearsome of all is the one used against the
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 ashesthe
entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas.
after-affects of this Iron Thunderbolt have an ominously recognizable
ring. Apparently, those killed by it were so burnt that their corpses were
unidentifiable. The survivors fared little better, as it caused their hair
and nails to fall out.
2. … And its all true!!!
Sanskrit documents which describe how to build a Vimana!
Sanskrit Samarangana Sutradhara, it is written: Strong and durable must
the body of the Vihmana 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, 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.
Indians wrote entire flight manuals on the control of the various types of
Vimanas, many of which are still in existence, and some have even been
translated into English.
Sutradhara is a scientific treatise dealing with every possible angle of
air travel in a Vimana. There are 230 stanzas dealing with the
construction, take-off, cruising for thousand of miles, normal and forced
landings, and even possible collisions with birds. In 1875, the Vaimanika
Sastra, a fourth century B.C. text written by Bharadvajy the Wise, using
even older texts as his source, was rediscovered in a temple in
It dealt with
the operation of Vimanas and included information on the steering,
precautions for long flights, protection of the airships from storms and
lightning and how to switch the drive to "solar energy" from a free energy
source which sounds like "anti-gravity." The Vaimanika Sastra (or
Vymaanika-Shaastra) has eight chapters with diagrams, describing three
types of aircraft, including apparatuses that could neither catch on fire
nor break. It also mentions 31 essential parts of these vehicles and 16
materials from which they are constructed, which absorb light and heat;
for which reason they were considered suitable for the construction of

publisher: VYMAANIDASHAASTRA AERONAUTICS by Maharishi Bharadwaaja,
translated into English and edited, printed and published by Mr. G.
R.Josyer, Mysore, India, 1979. Mr. Josyer is the director of the
International Academy of Sanskrit Investigation, located in
Mysore. There seems to be no doubt that Vimanas were
powered by some sort of "anti-gravity." Vimanas took off vertically, and
were capable of hovering in the sky, like a modern helicopter or
dirigible. Bharadvajy the Wise refers to no less than seventy authorities
and 10 experts of air travel in antiquity! (These sources are now lost!)
kept in a Vimana Griha, a kind of hanger, and were sometimes said to be
propelled by a yellowish-white liquid, and sometimes by some sort of
mercury compound, though writers seem confused in this matter. It is most
likely that the later writers on Vimanas, wrote as observers and from
earlier texts, and were understandably confused on the principle of their
propulsion. The "yellowish- white liquid" sounds suspiciously like
gasoline, and perhaps Vimanas had a number of different propulsion
sources, including combustion engines and even "pulse-jet" engines. There
are so many such texts and most of them have not even been translated into
It is evident
that ancient Indians flew around in these vehicles, all over Asia, and
even, apparently, to
South America. Writing found at Mohenjodaro (now in

3. Lost fountain of knowledge
Emperor Ashoka started a "Secret Society of the Nine Unknown Men": great
Indian scientists who were supposed to catalogue the many sciences. Ashoka
kept their work secret because he was afraid that the advanced science
catalogued by these men, culled from ancient Indian sources, would be used
for the evil purpose of war, which Ashoka was strongly against, having
been converted to Buddhism after defeating a rival army in a bloody
battle. The "Nine Unknown Men" wrote a total of nine books, presumably one
each. One of these books was titled "The Secrets of Gravitation!" This
book, known to historians, but not actually seen by them dealt chiefly
with "gravity control." It is presumably still around somewhere, kept in a
secret library in
Tibet or elsewhere. One can certainly understand Ashoka's reasoning for
wanting to keep such knowledge a secret.
also aware of devastating wars using such advanced vehicles and other
"futuristic weapons" that had destroyed the ancient Indian "Rama Empire"
several thousand years before.
alloys have been revealed in the ancient palm leaf manuscripts. The writer
and Sanskrit scholar Subramanyam Iyer has spent many years of his life
deciphering old collections of palm leaves found in the villages of his
native Karnataka in southern India.
One of the
palm leaf manuscripts they intend to decipher is the Amsu Bodhini, which,
according to an anonymous text of 1931, contains information about the
planets; the different kinds of light, heat, color, and electromagnetic
fields; the methods used to construct machines capable of attracting solar
rays and, in turn, of analysing and separating their energy components;
the possibility of conversing with people in remote places and sending
messages by cable; and the manufacture of machines to transport people to
4. Talpade – The Indian Sanskrit scholar who built and flew a mercury
engine aircraft in 1895, 8 years before the Wright brothers!
Bapuji Talpade, flew an unmanned aircraft, eight years before the Wright
demonstrated on December 17th 1903 that it was possible for a ‘manned
heavier than air machine to fly’. But, in 1895, eight years earlier, the
Sanskrit scholar Shivkar Bapuji Talpade had designed a basic aircraft
called Marutsakthi (meaning Power of Air) based on Vedic technology
documented in ancient Sanskrit manuscripts. His demonstration flight took
place before a large audience in the Chowpathy beach of Bombay. The
importance of the Wright brothers lies in the fact, that it was a manned
flight for a distance of 120 feet and Orville Wright became the first man
to fly. But Talpade’s unmanned aircraft flew to a height of 1500 feet
before crashing down and the historian Evan Koshtka, has described Talpade
as the ‘first creator of an aircraft’.
This historic day in 1895 (unfortunately the actual date is
not mentioned in the Kesari newspaper of Pune which covered the event) was
witnessed by the famous Indian judge/ nationalist/ Mahadeva Govin-da
Ranade and H H Sayaji Rao Gaekwad.
It is important to note that Talpade was no scientist, just a sanskrit
scholar who had built his aircraft entirely from the rich treasury of
Shivkar Bapuji Talpade was born in 1864 in the locality of
Chirabazar at Dukkarwadi in
He was a scholar of Sanskrit and from his young age was attracted by the
Vaimanika Sastra (Aeronautical Science) expounded by the great Indian sage
Surprisingly according to the bi-monthly Ancient Skies published in USA,
the aircraft engines being developed for future use by NASA also uses
mercury bombardment units powered by Solar cells! Interestingly, the
impulse is generated in seven stages. The mercury propellant is first
vapourised fed into the thruster discharge chamber ionised converted into
plasma by a combination with electrons broke down electrically and then
accelerated through small openings in a screen to pass out of the engine
at velocities between 1200 to 3000 kilometres per minute! But so far NASA
has been able to produce an experimental basis only a one pound of thrust
by its scientists a power derivation virtually useless. But over 100 years
ago Talpade was able to use his knowledge of Vaimanika Shastra to produce
sufficient thrust to lift his aircraft 1500 feet into the air!
Maharaja Sayaji Rao Gaekwad of Baroda was a great supporter of the
Sciences in India,
and was willing to help Talpade with funds to build his aircraft and the
But the success of an Indian scientist was not liked by the
Imperial rulers. Warned by the British Government the Maharaja of Baroda
stopped helping Talpade.
Talpade passed away in 1916 unhonoured, in his own country. It is said
that the remains of the Marutsakthi (the aircraft Tapade built) were
‘sold’ to a British company by Talpade’s relatives.
5. Who is benefiting from this knowledge today?
Robert Oppenheimer inventor of the atom bomb was well known for studying
ancient Indian texts and perhaps drew more than inspiration from them.
Just before the first Atom Bom test, Oppenheimer famously quoted from the
Gita saying, ‘I have become Death, Destroyer of Worlds".
interesting to note, that the Nazis developed the first practical
pulse-jet engines for their V-8 rocket "buzz bombs." Hitler and the Nazi
staff were exceptionally interested in ancient India and Tibet and sent
expeditions to both these places yearly, starting in the 30's, in order to
gather esoteric evidence that they did so, and perhaps it was from these
people that the Nazis gained some of their scientific information!
Only a few
years ago, the Chinese discovered some sanskrit documents in Lhasa, Tibet
and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh to be translated. Dr. Ruth
Reyna of the University said recently that the documents contain
directions for building interstellar spaceships! Their method of
propulsion, she said, was "anti- gravitational" and was based upon a
system analogous to that of "laghima," the unknown power of the ego
existing in man's physiological makeup, "a centrifugal force strong enough
to counteract all gravitational pull." According to Hindu Yogis, it is
this "laghima" which enables a person to levitate.
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 be thousands of years old.
The manuscripts were also said to reveal the secret of "antima"; "the cap
of invisibility" and "garima"; "how to become as heavy as a mountain of
lead." Naturally, Indian scientists did not take the texts very seriously,
but then became more positive about the value of them when the Chinese
announced that they were including certain parts of the data for study in
their space program! This was one of the first instances of a government
admitting to be researching anti-gravity.
There is a
wealth of knowledge locked away in Sanskrit manuscripts, 80% of which have
not even been translated yet. Talpade managed to successfully fly an
aircraft in 1895 using the knowledge in these Sanskrit documents.
Remember, he was not a scientist, just a Sanskrit scholar. Just imagine
what could be achieved if experts in science, Sanskrit and philosophy get
together to crack the code! Whoever cracks it will change the future of
the world and will probably dominate it.
