The idea of ancient aliens, ancient UFOs, and ancient astronauts have often skirted around depictions of Vimanas, elaborate dirigibles from India that supposedly predated modern technology. In the Sanskrit texts “Vimanas” refer to religious temples.
Interpretations of what these temples actually were run the gamut from interstellar spaceships to early prototypes of airplanes. Some scholars maintain these images and stories of space battles simply attest to the powers of the imagination (and even science fiction) thriving early on in human history. Other scholars say that these Sanskrit texts and other early historical documents suggest the Vimanas were either alien spaceships or aircrafts built by humans based on directives from alien ‘gods’.
UFOs in ancient art is nothing new. In fact, there are historians who have devoted their entire lives to studying the recurrence of unexplainable objects in the skies of ancient paintings and carvings. What has restricted these theories to the realm of fanciful narratives is the lack of physical evidence.
That could be about to change.
A couple months ago reports began resurfacing about an object that unnamed military scientists allege was discovered in a cave in Afghanistan sometime in 2010. According to these reports, a 5,000 year old Vimana was discovered entombed in a time well that had resulted in 8 troops disappearing, likely being incinerated. These reports have even suggested the Vimana is still activating, which is what caused the death of the soldiers as well as the disclosure that the original owner of the magical Vimana was none other than the ancient prophet Zoroaster.
As described in the Mahabarata, Vedas, and other Sanskrit texts, the Vimanas were 12 cubits in circumference and equipped with powerful exotic energy weapons that can essentially absorb a target in its vicinity. Other researchers have suggested that some interpretations of the ancient texts point to even stranger powers: invisibility (or “antima”), levitation, and “garima”, or the power to suddenly absorb tremendous weight. Sounds like powers that top brass at the United Nations might be interested in, which is perhaps the reason that no less than four world leaders paid unscheduled visits to Afghanistan in December of 2010.
We know, it sounds ridiculous. But open up the doors of perception for a moment, view the images below, and imagine that perhaps we don’t know the full story of what’s really going on…
