Did the ancient Indians have spaceships?


It seems that the ancient Indians may not only have had aircraft, as we have already been informed on this forum, but may also have had spaceships. As with other amazing achievement of this kind, the evidence comes from Sanskrit documents.

"Only a few years ago, the Chinese discovered some Sanskrit documents in Lhasa, Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh to be translated. Dr. Ruth Reyna of the university said that the documents contain directions for building interstellar spaceships! The Chinese announced that they were including certain parts of the documents for study in their space program."

From here
Aeroplanes In Ancient India - SciForums.com

It seems hard to find reliable information on this, because the Chinese are evidently keeping it secret to use in their own space programme, but I did discover this on a Pakistani forum:

"Only a few years ago, the Chinese discovered some sanskrit documents in Lhasa, Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh to be translated. Dr. Ruth Reyna of the university said recently that the documents contain directions for building interstellar spaceships!

Their method of propulsion, she said, was "anti-gravitational" and was based upon a system analogous to that of "laghima," the unknown power of the ego existing in man's physiological makeup, "a centrifugal force strong enough to counteract all gravitational pull." According to Hindu Yogis, it is this "laghima" which enables a person to levitate.

Dr. Reyna said that on board these machines, which were called "Astras" by the text, the ancient Indians could have sent a detachment of men onto any planet, according to the document, which is thought to be thousands of years old. The manuscripts were also said to reveal the secret of "antima"; "the cap of invisibility" and "garima"; "how to become as heavy as a mountain of lead."

That makes it all much clearer.


It seems that aliens may have visited ancient India and told them how to build these spacecraft (so they didn't invent them themselves like their aircraft):

"Dr.V. Raghavan, retired head of the Sanskrit department of India's prestigious University of Madras, was alone in playing host to extraterrestrials in prehistory. Dr. Raghavan contends that centuries-old documents in Sanskrit (the classical language of India and Hinduism) prove that aliens from outer space visited his nation."

"Another authority who agrees with Dr. Raghavan`s interpretations is Dr. A.V. Krishna Murty, professor of aeronautics at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore. "It is true," Dr. Krishna Murty says, "that the ancient Indian Vedas and other text refer to aeronautics, spaceships, flying machines, ancient astronauts. "A study of the Sanskrit texts has convinced me that ancient India did know the secret of building flying machines-and that those machines were patterned after spaceships coming from other planets." "

From here: Ancient Writings tell of UFO visit in 4000 BC

The Americans have discovered one of these machines in Afghanistan, which has been trapped in a time well for about 5000 years; unfortunately at least 8 American have disappeared while trying to remove it. For the unitiated, a time well "appears to be an electromagnetic radiation-gravity field first postulated by Albert Einstein as the Unified Field Theory and long rumored to be behind the infamous American World War II experiment in teleportation called the Philadelphia Experiment that in 1943, like the events occurring in Afghanistan today, likewise, caused the sudden “disappearance” of US Soldiers. "

Keep watching, everyone! And if you find one of these in your garden, don't go too close.

What? I don't think anyone wanted to blow up the moon. Could you please show me some sources saying that they tried to?

Okay then, there is the source. However, the article SPECIFICALLY said, that the goal was a show of strength. And honestly, if they found ancient space ships on the moon I think that they would tell people. There really isn't a reason to hide it.

They found a WW2 bomber plane on the moon. See the previous thread referenced by Linschoten.

There's only one teeny, tiny, objection I'd like to make to the assertion Linchs references in the OP. I mean, it's just a minor detail, so unimportant that it's almost not even worth mentioning really.

There is no "University of Chandrigarh".

You're just being picky now.

Do you really believe all this western propaganda?
