VIMANAS AND FLYING MACHINES IN VEDIC LITERATURE

Vimana1

There are many ancient legends throughout the world.
Different cultures speak about great stories with Gods of great power, that destroyed entire cities.
Sometimes they appear and disappear by the means of some kind of flying machines.

Nowadays these are considered myths, not corresponding to factual events. What if these were not imagination?

The mention of airplanes is found many times throughout Vedic literature; The Rig Veda, one of the oldest documents known to mankind includes references to the following modes of transportation:
Kaara – a vehicle that operates on ground and in water. (Rig Veda 9.14.1)
Jalayan – a vehicle designed to operate in air and water. (Rig Veda 6.58.3)
Tritala – a vehicle consisting of three stores. (Rig Veda 3.14.1)
Trichakra Ratha – a three-wheeled vehicle designed to operate in the air. (Rig Veda 4.36.1)
Vidyut Ratha – a vehicle that operates on power. (Rig Veda 3.14.1).
Vaayu Ratha – a gas or wind-powered chariot. (Rig Veda 5.41.6)

Also, in the Indian classic ‘Mahabharata’, one of the oldest books in the world, speak of a flying chariot with the sides of iron and clad with wings’ – The Vimana.
The Ramayana describes these machines as a double deck circular aircraft with portholes and a dome. They flew with the “speed of the wind” and gave forth a “melodious sound”.
The vimana could stop and remain motionless in the sky or flew so high above the clouds that the pilots could see the oceans like a little river from above.
The vimanas were kept in “vimana griha” or hangars. They were propelled by a yellowish-white liquid and employed for warfare, travel or sport.
As described in the text and translated by Dutt, Manatha Nath :
“The Pushpaka Vimana that resembles the Sun and belongs to my brother was brought by the powerful Ravana; that aerial and excellent Vimana going everywhere at will … that chariot resembling a bright cloud in the sky … and the King [Rama] got in, and the excellent chariot at the command of the Raghira, rose up into the higher atmosphere.'”

Many think they were talking about ancient UFOs, others say is pure myth.
Still, not only these are precise descriptions, of machines, but one can also find an astonishing resemblance in the new  NASA vehicle , Dragon, launched by SpaceX.

Salve! Ogni lettore è invitato a commentare qualsiasi post voglia, ed è un bene il confronto d'idee. Sono dunque io, Riccardo Perilli, ad invitare ognuno di voi, carissimi lettori, a commentare i post che scrivo o condivido. Le uniche due cose che chiedo di rispettare, per chiunque commenti, è che mi scriva poi, in fondo al proprio commento, un nome (non importa il cognome, mi raccomando!) al quale possa far riferimento per rispondergli (altrimenti appare "Commento in anonimo"); e che poi clicchi sulla spunta "inviami notifiche", in modo da poter restare sempre aggiornato sulle risposte che fornirò, e quelle che scriveranno gli altri lettori.
Ringrazio, nel frattempo, in attesa di vostri nuovi commenti, chi già ha commentato e chi commenterà.
