Did Gods Really Descend From The Sky In Vimanas And Used Them For Aerial Warfare?

From Sitchin’s interpretation of Sumerian texts, Anunnaki divided the Earth into four Regions after the great deluge, one of which was the Indus Valley. According to his research, the Indus Valley Region was awarded to Inanna, Enlil’s daughter after she had persisted in clamoring for a Kingdom of her own. Vedic culture is considered to be one of the most ancient in the world, and it is held in high regard in the Hindu religion. Interestingly, in these Ancient Indian Texts, there are stories of flying vehicles or Vimana, and devastating weapons of the Gods.

It is known that the first settlement at Harappa was built sometime between 3500 and 3300 BC, and about the same time Sumer came into existence. Thus far, 5 major cities of India have been discovered: Mohenjo-Daro, Harappa, Dholarvira, Ganweriwala, and Rakhigarhi.

The Ramayana and Mahabarata are amongst the most important epic Hindu Poems. In the Ramayana, a war between the Ancient Indian King Rama and Ravana, the King of Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) is chronicled, whilst the Mahabarata serves as a record of the History of Hinduism and its moral Laws. The epics describe the details of Wars between the Gods from fierce Nuclear type Weapons, or “Iron Missiles,” to advanced aerial machines, which are referred to as Vimana.

In his best-selling book “Chariot Of Gods,” the Swiss author Erich Von Daniken wrote that he found evidence of the terrible weapons held by Indian Gods in Mausala Parva, or the “Book of Clubs,” the sixteenth of eighteen books of the Indian epic Mahabharata.

Evidence of Vimanas In Vedic Texts

In “2000 BC: Atomic Destruction,” David W. Davenport wrote about his work comparing the original Sanskrit texts, Rig Veda, Mahābhārata, Rāmāyaṇa, and dozens of other ancient texts, after having found what appeared to be an “aeronautics manual” in the Indus Valley.

Among other ideas discussed in his book, Davenport dedicated considerable space to the possible technical/technological translation of the ancient aeronautical manual, the Vaimānika Shāstra (Science of Aeronautics) by Maharishi Bharadwaja, which briefly describes the operation of the Vimanas, an ancient aircraft that sailed the skies around 4,000 years ago, and the equipment that aircraft used. His exhaustive study led Davenport to conclude that this text should be integrated with other Sanskrit manuscripts, little known even in India and never translated for the West.

Vymanika Shastra is a Vedic aeronautical treatise by an ancient Rishi describing giant indigenous airplanes that traveled between cities and continents 7,000 years ago. The text is claimed to have been dictated by a man named Pandit Subbaraya Shastri before the Wright brothers took off their first airplane. It was first revealed to the world in 1952 by G. R. Josyer, and the first Sanskrit to English translation was published in 1973. (Click here to read the full story)

In 1895, Shivkar Bapuji Talpade (1864-1916), a Sanskrit scholar launched an unmanned aircraft called Marutsakha, (Sanskrit ‘Marut’ means Air and ‘Sakha’ means ‘Friend’, so ‘Friend of the Air’) on Chowpatty beach, Mumbai. In 2004, the Times of India confirmed: “Talpade used the principles of the solar energy combined with the use of mercury to design his aircraft,” and this refers to knowledge of the Vimana, ancient mythological flying palaces or chariots described in Hindu texts and Sanskrit epics, of which the Pushpaka Vimana of king Ravana is the most quoted example. Talpade had a great interest in the Vedic Sanskirt, which afforded him insight into the Vaimanika Shastra, to construct his aircraft.

Was Dwarka A City Built By A God and Attacked by a Vimana?

Ancient Sanskrit literature explains how Lord Krishna, the eighth Avatar of Vishnu created the city of Dwarka. Before the legendary city was created, Krishna lived in the city of Mathura. The kingdom was constantly attacked: seventeen times in total by Jarasandha, a tyrant king and ruler of Magadha.

Dwarka is also the place where a mighty aerial battle took place. According to ancient Hindu texts, Lord Krishna was attacked by a king named Salwa in Dwarka. The descriptions of the event are extremely interesting, and ancient astronaut theorists suggest the intricate descriptions of the battle hint at the possibility that some sort of advanced technology was used, even possible flying crafts or spacecraft.

“Lord Krsna struck Salva with sixteen arrows, and with showers of arrows He overpowered the airplane, just as the sun in a clear sky overpowers the whole sky by an unlimited number of molecules of sunshine…”

According to the ancient Sanskrit texts, in possession of his aerial vehicle, Salwa attacked the city of Dvārakā, raining down mighty weapons that resemble lightning. According to the narration in the epic, he possessed an aircraft known as Saubha Vimana and used it for air travel and for aerial warfare.

Large parts of the city were destroyed in the attack until the god Krishna responded by firing weapons at this spacecraft. Furthermore, the legend says that Krishna eventually departed Earth, and the ocean consumed his city of Dwarka.

For many years, Dwarka was just a myth until the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) established the presence of a city submerged under the sea near the temple town of Dwarka. Excavators from the ASI found remains of a citadel wall, crockery pieces, and rubbles of a palace about 40-60 feet deep in the sea.

Do these ancient scriptures tell us the gods did not fly like a superman but actually used flying machines to resemble modern spacecraft to roam the Earth? Besides, did the ancient civilizations witness powerful weapons like nuclear bombs?
