With Prime Minister Narendra Modi in attendance (as seen in the picture), and various other prestigious scientists from all over the world, the Indian Science Congress is probably the last place you would expect a presentation regarding ancient flying machines that could traverse the Solar System. For the first time in the history of the congress, a presentation was given outlining the depiction of these ancient flying ‘space ships.’

These flying machines have been depicted in multiple Sanskrit texts such as the Vedas, the Puranas and more. What’s even more remarkable is the fact that this type of machinery, and the concept of intelligent extraterrestrial life is not limited to ancient Sanskrit (Hinduism and Buddhism), but is found in several different ancient civilizations that span across the globe, according to many scholars and academicians. This doesn’t mean it’s true, but it does mean that the subject should be able to be examined with an open mind, without ridicule and condemnation.

The idea of mixing in a serious talk on ancient Indian flying machines when presentations on more rigid research and science policy issues are being discussed, at a major science conference, in my opinion, is great. It probably opened the minds of many who otherwise would have not even thought about something like this in the first place.

The lecture was given by Captain Anand Bodas, a retired pilot and head of a pilot training facility. The presentation was titled “Ancient Indian Sciences Through Sanskrit.” The lecture sent a jolt through the congress, and didn’t come without any backlash.  A NASA scientist, Ram Prasad Gandhiraman was so upset that he started an online petition demanding that the Indian Science Congress cancel the lecture, because (in his opinion) it mixed science with mythology. (source)

According to RT news, here is one quote from the lecture:

“There is a reference to ancient aviation in the Rigveda (Vedic Sanskrit Hymns). The basic structure was of 60 by 60 feet, and in some cases, over 200 feet. They were jumbo planes, the ancient planes had 40 small engines. Today’s aviation does not know even of a flexible exhaust system.” (source)

These types of concepts and ideas have been gaining more popularity, which in turn has lead to mainstream television shows like “Ancient Aliens,’ one that is commonly aired on the discovery channel.

More Information Regarding Ancient Flying Machines In Sanskrit Texts

If you are interested in these concepts, you will probably find the “Vimanas” of the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Samarangana Sutradhara very interesting.

The Ramayana is a Veda epic that dates back to the fourth/fifth century, B.C. These flying machines are also described in the Mahabharata, another ancient text. One of the vimana’s is described as having “twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels and 20 to 25 feet in circumference and approximately seven feet in diameter.” This is one description of many, from various texts like the description Anand Bodas gave above. (1)

In one passage, a vimana is described as a “chariot that resembles the sun, that aerial and excellent chariot going everywhere at will, resembling a bright cloud in the sky, and the king got in and the excellent chariot rose up into the higher atmosphere.” (1)(2)(3)

“They roar off into the sky until they appear like comets.” The Mahabharata and several other Sanskrit texts describe at length these chariots, “powered by winged lighting, it was a ship that soared into the air, flying to both the solar and stellar regions.” (4)

The Samarangana Sutradhara is a classical Indian architecture text written in 1000-1055 AD. In it, whole chapters are devoted to describing ancient airships.

“It also describes types of machines as automotive, one stroke engine, remote-control machine and driver-run machine. Keep in mind, this is 1000 years ago. It devotes one full chapter on the building of flying machines. The book does not explain the process of building airplanes completely and says that it has been done purposely, for the sake of secrecy.” – Prabhakar Apte, MA and PhD in Sanskrit. (3)(5)

The Tibetan books of Tantyua and Kantyua mention prehistoric flying machines, which they refer to as “pearls in the sky.” In both books, they emphasize that this knowledge is secret, and should be kept from the masses. The list literally goes on and on and is quite interesting.

Again, various texts around the globe, according to many, seem to describe ancient extraterrestrials and UFOs. There is also an abundance of ancient art depicting these types of concepts.

“The Samarangana Sutradhara is a classical Indian architecture written in 1000-1055 AD. In it, whole chapters are devoted to describing airships whose tails spout fire and quicksilver. “The world ‘fire’ in ancient texts cannot mean burning fire, for altogether some forty different kinds of “fire,” mainly connected with esoteric and magnetic phenomena, are enumerated.” – Erich Von Daniken (6)

Real Or Mythical?

There is more evidence available today suggesting that these stories are real, as opposed to the evidence which suggests they are simply mythological stories that were made up and written about from imagination. I’m referring to the UFO phenomenon, one that continues to gain more attention around the world, and one that has been verified by dozens of governments. This phenomenon seems to corroborate in some form to stories that we find in various ancient texts throughout the world. I won’t go into too much detail here but you can check out this articles for more information on that, and visit the Exopolitics section of our website here.

At the same time, many scientists have concluded that very few of the craft it describes would likely be able to fly at all. There is no shortage of differing opinions on this matter.I have a hard time believing that the ancients spent so much time and detail describing these crafts out of pure imagination. What are your thoughts? Feel free to share them in the comment section below.

“We are not going to get any further with the old approach which scholars unfortunately still cling to: That doesn’t exist…those are mistakes in translation…those are fanciful exaggerations by the author or copyists.” – Erich Von Daniken (6)

New UFO Film Questions What The US Government Is Hiding

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.

Pentagon UFO Report: Explanations Fall Into One of Five Categories. Aliens Not Ruled Out

So is it aliens? The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is here, and the executive summary alone gives insight into the nature of this report from US Intelligence Communities.

The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) considered a range of information on UAP described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting, but because the reporting lacked sufficient specificity, ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.

Essentially, the report aims to acknowledge 16 years of this phenomenon, while leaving out the 70 years it has been studying this phenomenon.

Still, as per the report, the U.S. government can’t explain 143 of the 144 cases of unidentified flying objects reported by their own military planes.

It acknowledges that “a handful of UAP appear to demonstrate advanced technology.”

In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics. Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernible means of propulsion. In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.

The UAPTF holds a small amount of data that appear to show UAP demonstrating acceleration or a degree of signature management. Additional rigorous analysis are necessary by multiple teams or groups of technical experts to determine the nature and validity of these data. We are conducting further analysis to determine if breakthrough technologies were demonstrated.

It goes on to drop the last 16 years of measuring this phenomenon into 5 key categories, non of which mention non human intelligent life, but that is technically a bin for it.

The five categories are,

Airborne Clutter: These objects include birds, balloons, recreational unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or airborne debris like plastic bags that muddle a scene and affect an operator’s ability to identify true targets, such as enemy aircraft. Natural

Atmospheric Phenomena: Natural atmospheric phenomena includes ice crystals, moisture, and thermal fluctuations that may register on some infrared and radar systems.

USG or Industry Developmental Programs: Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities. We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the UAP reports we collected.

Foreign Adversary Systems: Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity. UNCLASSIFIED 6 UNCLASSIFIED

Other: Although most of the UAP described in our dataset probably remain unidentified due to limited data or challenges to collection processing or analysis, we may require additional scientific knowledge to successfully collect on, analyze and characterize some of them. We would group such objects in this category pending scientific advances that allowed us to better understand them. The UAPTF intends to focus additional analysis on the small number of cases where a UAP appeared to display unusual flight characteristics or signature management.

The report does state, rather predictably, that some observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis.

As expected, they are claiming that “UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security.” What’s odd about this statement is that this phenomenon has been known about for 70 years, yet not a single aviation incident has occurred that anyone knows of, so why are they a threat to flight all of a sudden?

Further, one could expect “a threat to nation security” would be mentioned  for two reasons: on a political level this means more attention will be paid to the issue, and there has long been political leverage gained from presenting certain global events as a threat to ‘get other things done.’

In this case, the report makes mention of foreign adversary threats should these incidences fall under that category, claiming these could be breakthrough or disruptive technology.

The report contends that further scientific analysis and more focused measurement apparatus would be required to answer some of the unanswered questions surrounding ‘the few’ instances where UAP performed ‘impossible’ maneuvers.

There is likely a classified version of this report that would be in much greater detail. The question is why after 70 years is the public still in the dark?

Perhaps the takeaway here is that although this is essentially a repeat of Project Blue Book of the 50s and 60s, we are now in a time where it’s being talked about again. Further, we are in an age where information spreads a lot faster and a lot further then back then. Perhaps that will be the kicker this time around.

We’ll have more detailed coverage throughout the day and into tomorrow.

The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is set to be released from the U.S. Intelligence Community. Some of those waiting expect a moment of acknowledgment, but perhaps nothing all that new, while others are hoping for a much deeper admission of non-human intelligent life. Time will tell.

In the wake, Senator Marco Rubio has issued the following statement:

Rubio Statement on UAP Report

Miami, FL — Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Vice Chairman Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement on the unclassified report on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

“For years, the men and women we trust to defend our country reported encounters with unidentified aircraft that had superior capabilities, and for years their concerns were often ignored and ridiculed,” Rubio said. “This report is an important first step in cataloging these incidents, but it is just a first step. The Defense Department and Intelligence Community have a lot of work to do before we can actually understand whether these aerial threats present a serious national security concern.”

In 2020, Rubio, as Acting Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, included report language in the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 directing ODNI to submit a report to congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena.

We’ll have full coverage of the what’s in the report later today, if the report is released, and of course in the coming days as it will inevitably require much analysis and discussion. Sign up to our email list and follow us on Twitter for more to come.
