What are the Vimana? Are they ancient flying machines? We have been told that the Wright brothers were the first to fly in 1903. Was it the Wright brothers who managed to turn dream into reality? Or is it possible that the dream of flight, was something present in ancient India, thousands of years ago? Today, Vimana is the name attributed to a flying machine used by the gods of ancient India. The earliest accounts of this amazing civilization are written in Sanskrit thousands of years ago, where different types of Vimanas are referred to. These strange flying machines were used in incredible battles, battles resembling modern-day jet panes engaging into action, but only hundreds of years before Christ. In the Mahabharata, these incredible battles are described. The Vimanas are mentioned forty-one times with sophisticated combat weapons that shoot beams of light.
The ancient texts refer to King Salva attacks against the city of Dwaraka, where the God Krishna lived. Salva leads a flying Vimana called Saubha that has the power to become invisible. Krishna returns the attack with lightning that locates and destroys his enemies through sound.
The Ramayana also makes reference to incredible flying machines, telling the adventures of Princess Sita, kidnapped by the evil Ravana, where a Vimana called Puspaka is mentioned.
According to Dr. V. Raghavan, former professor of Sanskrit at the University of Madras, there are countless documents in Sanskrit, dating back thousands of years, that proved that extraterrestrial beings were in ancient India thousands of years ago. There extraterrestrial visitors were referred to as Gods. And these gods had numerous weapons and technologies that were interpreted by ancient people as heavenly.
But not only due to ancient text have the aerodynamic qualities of these Vimana but there are also texts that talk about how these flying machines can be built. The Ramayana indicates that 16 types of metals are needed to build a Vimana, here on Earth we only have three of the metals mentioned in the sacred texts.
According to researchers, these ancient texts also refer to incredible technologies like anti gravity. Dr. Ruth Reyna of the University of Chandrigarh managed to translate some of the texts written in Sanskrit that make reference to “anti-gravitational” forces. Technology that the Yogis developed to “levitate”. According to research, the same anti-gravitational force is what allowed the Vimana to move freely through space.
The Vimana are mentioned in several other texts, apart from Hindu mythology, indicating that these flying machines of the gods were a possibility thousands of years ago. Doctor Raghavan says that the technology was brought by beings from other planets thousands of years ago at a time when the Anunnaki lived among people and the Sumerian culture flushed in ancient Mesopotamia.
Many Ufologists believe that the Vimana are what we today refer to as “flying saucers”. These mysterious vehicles are piloted by otherworldly beings and we can find proof of them in ancient texts across the globe, like the Sanskrit where the flying machines are mentioned in detail. Researchers believe that there are many other texts that have not been translated yet, and hold important details regarding otherworldly visitations and their technology thousands of years ago.
“Those who came from above” is, in Sumerian language, Anunnaki. Ancient Astronaut theorists believe that the Anunnaki showed the Sumerians, then the Babylonians, how to build and manage these sophisticated machines. Some believe this knowledge extended all the way to ancient India pointing towards the iconography of some Hindu gods and some mythological accounts as being evidence of a possible connection to the ancient Anunnaki.
