 Ancient Indian Aircraft Technology  
 From The Anti-Gravity Handbook  
 by D. Hatcher Childress  
      Many researchers into the UFO enigma tend to overlook a very  important 
 fact. While it assumed that most flying saucers are of  alien, or perhaps 
 Governmental Military origin, another possible  origin of UFOs is ancient 
 India and Atlantis. What we know about  ancient Indian flying vehicles comes 
 from ancient Indian  sources; written texts that have come down to us through 
 the  centuries. There is no doubt that most of these texts are  authentic; 
 many are the well known ancient Indian Epics  themselves, and there are 
 literally hundreds of them. Most of  them have not even been translated into 
 English yet from the old  sanskrit. 
      The Indian 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. Book number was "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  India, Tibet or elsewhere (perhaps even in North America  somewhere). One 
 can certainly understand Ashoka's reasoning for  wanting to keep such 
 knowledge a secret, assuming it exists. 
      Ashoka was 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. 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. 
      Dr. Reyna 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. 
      The manuscripts did not say definitely that interplanetary  travel was 
 ever made but did mention, of all things, a planned  trip to the Moon, though 
 it is not clear whether this trip was  actually carried out. However, one of 
 the great Indian epics,the  Ramayana, does have a highly detailed story in it 
 of a trip to  the moon in a Vimana (or "Astra"), and in fact details a battle  
 on the moon with an "Asvin" (or Atlantean") airship. This is but  a small bit 
 of recent evidence of anti-gravity and aerospace  technology used by Indians.
      To really understand the technology, we must go much further  back in 
 time. The so-called "Rama Empire" of Northern India and  Pakistan developed at 
 least fifteen thousand years ago on the  Indian subcontinent and was a nation 
 of many large,  sophisticated cities, many of which are still to be found in 
 the  deserts of Pakistan, northern, and western India. Rama existed,  
 apparently, parallel to the Atlantean civilization in the mid- Atlantic Ocean, 
 and was ruled by "enlightened Priest-Kings" who  governed the cities.
      The seven greatest capital cities of Rama were known in  classical Hindu 
 texts as "The Seven Rishi Cities." According to  ancient Indian texts, the 
 people had flying machines which were  called "Vimanas." The ancient Indian 
 epic describes a Vimana as  a doubledeck, circular aircraft with portholes and 
 a dome, much  as we would imagine a flying saucer. It flew with the "speed of  
 the wind" and gave forth a"melodious sound." There were at least  four 
 different types of Vimanas; some saucer shaped, others like  long cylinders 
 ("cigar shaped airships"). The ancient Indian  texts on Vimanas are so 
 numerous, it would take volumes to  relate what they had to say. The ancient 
 Indians, who  manufactured these ships themselves, 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. 
      The Samara 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 India. 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 Vimanas. 
      This document has been translated into English and is available  by 
 writing the publisher: VYMAANIDASHAASTRA AERONAUTICS by  Maharishi 
 Bharadwaaja, translated into English and edited,  printed and published by Mr. 
 G. R.Josyer, Mysore, India, 1979  (sorry, no street address). 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 70  authorities and 10 experts of air travel in antiquity. 
      These sources are now lost. Vimanas were 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. It is  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!  
      According to the Dronaparva, part of the Mahabarata, and the  Ramayana, 
 one Vimana described was shaped like a sphere and born  along at great speed 
 on a mighty wind generated by mercury. It  moved like a UFO, going up, down, 
 backwards and forwards as the  pilot desired. In another Indian source, the 
 Samar, Vimanas were  "iron machines, well-knit and smooth, with a charge of 
 mercury  that shot out of the back in the form of a roaring flame."  Another 
 work called the Samaranganasutradhara describes how the  vehicles were 
 constructed. It is possible that mercury did have  something to do with the 
 propulsion, or more possibly, with the  guidance system. Curiously, Soviet 
 scientists have discovered  what they call "ageold instruments used in 
 navigating cosmic  vehicles" in caves in Turkestan and the Gobi Desert. The  
 "devices" are hemispherical objects of glass or porcelain,  ending in a cone 
 with a drop of mercury inside. 
      It is evident that ancient Indians flew around in these  vehicles, all 
 over Asia, to Atlantis presumably; and even,  apparently, to South 
 America.Writing found at Mohenjodaro in  Pakistan (presumed to be one of the 
 "Seven Rishi Cities of the  Rama Empire") and still undeciphered, has also 
 been found in one  other place in the world: Easter Island! Writing on Easter  
 Island, called Rongo-Rongo writing, is also undeciphered, and is  uncannily 
 similar to the Mohenjodaro script. Was Easter Island  an air base for the Rama 
 Empire's Vimana route? (At the Mohenjo- Daro Vimana-drome, as the passenger 
 walks down the concourse, he  hears the sweet, melodic sound of the announcer 
 over the  loudspeaker,"Rama Airways flight number seven for Bali, Easter  
 Island, Nazca, and Atlantis is now ready for boarding.  Passengers please 
 proceed to gate number..") in Tibet, no small  distance, and speaks of the 
 "fiery chariot" thus: "Bhima flew  along in his car, resplendent as the sun 
 and loud as thunder...  The flying chariot shone like a flame in the night sky 
 of summer  ... it swept by like a comet... It was as if two suns were  
 shining. Then the chariot rose up and all the heaven brightened."  
      In the Mahavira of Bhavabhuti, a Jain text of the eighth century  culled 
 from older texts and traditions, we read: "An aerial  chariot, the Pushpaka, 
 conveys many people to the capital of  Ayodhya. The sky is full of stupendous 
 flying-machines, dark as  night,but picked out by lights with a yellowish 
 glare." The  Vedas, ancient Hindu poems, thought to be the oldest of all the  
 Indian texts, describe Vimanas of various shapes and sizes: the  
 "ahnihotravimana" with two engines, the"elephant-vimana" with  more engines, 
 and other types named after the kingfisher, ibis  and other animals. 
      Unfortunately, Vimanas, like most scientific discoveries, were  
 ultimately used for war. Atlanteans used their flying machines,  "Vailixi," a 
 similar type of aircraft, to literally try and  subjugate the world, it would 
 seem, if Indian texts are to be  believed. The Atlanteans, known as "Asvins" 
 in the Indian  writings, were apparently even more advanced technologically  
 than the Indians, and certainly of a more war-like temperament.  Although no 
 ancient texts on Atlantean Vailixi are known to  exist, some information has 
 come down through esoteric, "occult"  sources which describe their flying 
      Similar, if not identical to Vimanas, Vailixi were generally  "cigar 
 shaped" and had the capability of manoeuvering underwater  as well as in the 
 atmosphere or even outer space. Other  vehicles, like Vimanas, were saucer 
 shaped, and could apparently  also be submerged.According to Eklal Kueshana, 
 author of "The  Ultimate Frontier," in an article he wrote in 1966, Vailixi 
 were  first developed in Atlantis 20,000 years ago, and the most  common ones 
 are "saucer shaped of generally trapezoidal cross- section with three 
 hemispherical engine pods on the underside."  "They use a mechanical 
 antigravity device driven by engines  developing approximately 80,000 horse 
 power." The Ramayana,  Mahabarata and other texts speak of the hideous war 
 that took  place, some ten or twelve thousand years ago between Atlantis  and 
 Rama using weapons of destruction that could not be imagined  by readers until 
 the second half of this century. 
      The ancient Mahabharata, one of the sources on Vimanas, goes on  to tell 
 the awesome destructiveness of the war: "...(the weapon  was) 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... 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..."  It would seem that the Mahabharata is describing an atomic war! 
  References like this one are not isolated; but battles, using a  fantastic 
 array of weapons and aerial vehicles are common in all  the epic Indian books. 
 One even describes a Vimana-Vailix battle  on the Moon! The above section very 
 accurately describes what an  atomic explosion would look like and the effects 
 of the  radioactivity on the population. Jumping into water is the only  
      When the Rishi City of Mohenjodaro was excavated by archaeologists in the 
 last century, they found skeletons just lying in the streets, some of them 
 holding hands, as if some great doom had suddenly overtaken them.  These 
 skeletons are among the most radioactive ever found, on a par with those found 
 at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Ancient cities whose brick and stonewalls have 
 literally been vitrified, that is-fused together, can be found in India, 
 Ireland, Scotland, France, Turkey and other places. There is no logical 
 explanation for the vitrification of stone forts and cities, except from an 
 atomic blast.
      Futhermore, at Mohenjo-Daro, a well planned city laid on a grid,  with a 
 plumbing system superior to those used in Pakistan and  India today, the 
 streets were littered with "black lumps of  glass." These globs of glass were 
 discovered to be clay pots  that had melted under intense heat! With the 
 cataclysmic sinking  of Atlantis and the wiping out of Rama with atomic 
 weapons, the  world collapsed into a "stone age" of sorts, and modern history  
 picks up a few thousand years later  Yet, it would seem that not  all the 
 Vimanas and Vailixi of Rama and Atlantis were gone.  Built to last for 
 thousands of years, many of them would still  be in use, as evidenced by 
 Ashoka's "Nine Unknown Men" and the  Lhasa manuscript. 
      That secret societies or "Brotherhoods" of exceptional, "enlightened" 
 human beings would have preserved these inventions and the knowledge of 
 science, history, etc., does not seem surprising.  Many well known historical 
 personages including Jesus, Buddah, Lao Tzu, Confucious, Krishna, Zoroaster, 
 Mahavira, Quetzalcoatl, Akhenaton, Moses, and more recent inventors and of 
 course many other people who will probably remain anonymous, were probably 
 members of such a secret organization. It is interesting to note that when 
 Alexander the Great invaded India more than two thousand years ago, his 
 historians chronicled that at one point they were attacked by "flying,fiery 
 shields" that dove at his army and frightened the cavalry. These "flying 
 saucers" did not use any atomic bombs or beam weapons on Alexander's army 
 however, perhaps out of benevolence, and Alexander went on to conquer India. 
 It has been suggested by many writers that these "Brotherhoods" keep some of 
 their Vimanas and Vailixi in secret caverns in Tibet or some other place is 
 Central Asia, and the Lop Nor Desert in western China is known to be the 
 centre of a great UFO mystery. Perhaps it is here that many of the airships 
 are still kept, in underground bases much as the Americans, British and 
 Soviets have built around the world in the past few decades. Still, not all 
 UFO activity can be accounted for by old Vimanas making trips to the Moon for 
 some reason.
      Undoubtedly, some are from the Military Governments of the  world, and 
 possibly even from other planets. Of course, many UFO  sightings are "swamp, 
 gas, clouds, hoaxes, and hallucinations,  while there is considerable evidence 
 that many UFO sightings,  especially "kidnappings" and the like, are the 
 result of what is  generally called "telepathic hypnosis."  
      One common thread that often runs between "Alien kidnappings,"  "sex with 
 aliens," and other "close encounters of a third kind"  is a buzzing in the 
 ears just before the encounter. According to  many well informed people, this 
 is a sure sign of telepathic  hypnosis.
