Vimanas, Evidence of Ancient Aliens?
Vimanas are ancient “mythical” aircraft, which were written about in the Vedas texts or scriptures in India between 500B.C. and 1,000 B.C. The Vedas texts constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature. These ancient Sanskrit texts contained very detailed descriptions of ancient flying machines. They described their physical appearance, how they were powered, and even what weapons they carried.
The Vedas described the Vimanas as technologically advanced airplanes that flew in the skies, into space and to other planets. They explained that these crafts were powered by a combination of several gyroscopes, mercury, and electricity.
There are many references in ancient Sanskrit referencing the Vimanas as battlefield space crafts that harbored many weapons used by both Gods and demons. In the Sanskrit Samarangana Sutradhara, which means “controller of the battlefield”, 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, 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.”
This excerpt describing the operational aspects of the Vimanas seems to ancient alien theorists to be ahead of the times for such an ancient era. According to some, these space craft observers had access to a highly advanced way of thinking about technology.
Vimana Drawing from Vedas Text
Aviation experts who have studied the Vedas records have declared that Vimanas have many similarities to modern aircraft, specifically jet engines. Also, there are striking similarities between descriptions of vimanas and UFO’s reported by people who have claimed to have encountered them in modern days.
While mainstream historians believes that the Vedas descriptions of Vimanas are basically early mythical science fiction stories of ancient India, ancient alien theorists feel quite strongly that these flying machines were in fact real technologically advanced chariots for the Gods of those living in India thousands of years ago. There is no current physical evidence that these Vimanas actually existed, but the detailed and scientifically-based descriptions of these flying machines have many people convinced that they were indeed flown by humans and possibly extraterrestrial beings or Gods.
