Ancient Indian Flying Saucers: Vimana and Vailixi

If you thought that advanced flight technology has only been in existence in modern times, then you clearly have never heard about the ancient Indian flying saucers depicted in the ancient Indian texts. These flying saucers, known as Vimanas and Vailixi are ancient flying machines that make use of ancient alien technology. Many passages describe these machines in great detail, offering a glimpse into how the people of the time viewed such mind-boggling technology.

Both machines are written about extensively in the ancient Indian texts, notably the Mahabharata. At the time these old peoples had no concept of technology, so they described these machines as flying chariots that the gods rode in. To ancient peoples, such advanced technology would appear to be divine in origin. Aliens have visited the planet in the past, all the clues are right there in the old writings of ancient civilizations, yet we continue to scoff at these stunningly accurate descriptions of wild technology we have only begun to develop in the modern era.

What is a Vimana?

A Vimana is a Sanskrit word meaning a flying object and the word is used to describe the flying chariots of the gods in the ancient Indian epics. There are many different variations of vimanas described in the ancient Vedic texts, those that form the foundation of Hinduism and are some of the earliest pieces of writing in the world, yet each of them has a few things in common. Namely, they are flying objects powered by some otherworldly force, and they carry the gods mentioned in the texts. Sometimes these vimanas are gigantic flying palaces while other times they are more aircraft-like in their description.

Throughout these texts, there are repeated mentions of these flying objects, with the gods doing aerial combat with each other while riding these objects. To those on the ground these descriptions are apt: how could ancient civilizations comprehend such advanced alien technology without attributing it to the power of the gods?

Some of the descriptions in the texts are particularly eye-opening, such as this passage from the Samarangana Sutradhara, which describes a vimana:

Strong and durable must the body of the Vimana be made, like a great flying bird of light material. Inside one must put the mercury engine with its iron heating apparatus underneath. By means of the power latent in the mercury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion, a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in the sky. The movements of the Vimana are such that it can vertically ascend, vertically descend, move slanting forwards and backwards. With the help of the machines, human beings can fly in the air, and heavenly beings can come down to earth.

Such writings make it pretty clear that there was some advanced technology present, not just gods coming down to earth an interaction with the human population.

What is a Vailixi?

Less-mentioned in the texts but equally important are Vailixi, which are cylindrical-shaped flying vehicles that carry the armies of the gods. There is not nearly as much text that mentions these crafts, but they are undoubtedly powered by an advanced alien propulsion technology.

How Do We Know Ancient Aliens Exist?

Throughout the ancient texts in the world, there are mentions and descriptions of wild technology so powerful that it is attributed to the gods themselves. However, if a modern-day human were to time travel back into ancient times with the technology from our current time, the old peoples would surely think of them as gods. If one is not used to being around such advanced technology the only possible explanation is that of divine power.

We get other incredible descriptions of the power of the gods throughout the Vedic texts, including a story that seems eerily similar to an atomic bomb detonating as mentioned in the Mahabharata:

... (the weapon was) a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and flame as bright as the thousand suns rose in all its splendor... An iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death, which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.... the corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. The hair and nails fell out; pottery broke without apparent cause, and the birds turned white.... after a few hours all foodstuffs were infected.... to escape from this fire, the soldiers threw themselves in streams to wash themselves and their equipment...

All of the events described above are dead on for what happens when an atomic bomb goes off, and what the resulting nuclear fallout does to the surrounding people and environment. It is clear from passages such as these that aliens have been interacting with humans for a long time. It begs the question as to what their motives are? Why did aliens choose our planet to land on?

We may never know the answer to those questions, but we undoubtedly know that the power of the gods as described in many ancient texts is a description of the incredible alien technology that the ancient humans could not comprehend as anything other than divine.

While many in the scientific community may dismiss such claims, a growing body of evidence from the ancient world has begun to surface that cannot be ignored. Aliens have interacted with humans in the distant past, and their interactions shaped the entire history of human civilization. Vimanas are just one example of that. We cannot merely rely on what the media tells us and take it at face value. There are other forces at work that are trying to obscure essential events that have taken place in the past which are currently impacting the present. Many of the advanced technologies we now have could very well be derived from ancient alien technology, or alien tech we have discovered in recent times.

Interesting and enjoyable read. Yes, it's truly possible that aliens landed, fought, taught, and even attempted to conquer humanity. Great article. Respectfully, Tim

Ashutosh Joshi from New Delhi, India on April 22, 2018:

Fascinating and intriguing as it may seem, the problem with this idea or concept is that there isn't any substantial evidence or discovery/artifact to support the claim.

In the epic 'Ramayana' there is a mention of 'Pushpak Vimaan', the aircraft on which Ravana (King of present day Sri Lanka) abducted Goddess Sita. But there are several other mentions that pre dates Ramayana. Again all these are mythological texts. Though as an intial argument we can begin with the inspiration behind the same. The vertical flight, antigravity, and other associated concepts are equally intriguing.

But then, end of the day it all boils down to evidence!!
