Vedas are the books that are without start and without end.

Solutions to every problem you face

in life are given in Vedas. Vedas are nothing but the base of all the universe.
-Swami Vivekanand
A point of note: Vedas not being dogmatic in nature and containing
eternal truths, do not try to spoon-feed us. Thus Vedas would contain
seeds for all forms of knowledge and would urge humans to explore
further. Because in the Vedic framework, its our efforts that can
provide us bliss.

is feasible. The first manned plane was built 20 years after death of
Swami Dayanand.

The Vedic civilization, according to the ancient scriptures, was at a much higher level of development than our
modern society.

In Sanskrit veda means knowledge. So what kind of knowledge are we talking about?

From the standpoint of current evolutionary theory, the human race is supposed to be at the top of the society
development. However, according to the Vedic literature, in a distant past there have been civilizations in the
world, the greatness of which we cannot even imagine.

A detailed study of the Vedic texts was held in Bombay in 1975.

It was a scientific explosion in physicist circles when the scientists have discovered the vivid description of
subatomic level in the Vedas written some five thousand years ago.

For example, it is stated in the Bhagavata Purana:

The material manifestations ultimate particle, which is indivisible and not formed into a body, is
called the atom Param anuh. It exists always as an invisible identity, even after the dissolution of
all forms. The material body is but a combination of such atoms, but it is misunderstood by the
common man. (Bhagavata Purana 3.11.1)

In the same Bhagavata Purana the different time scales are explained, starting with the atomic. The theory of
relativity and quantum physics can be substantially supplemented by information from the Sanskrit texts.
Aryans were well aware of such concepts as superconductivity, nuclear and plasma weapons not to mention

The Mahabharata, an ancient historical epic, describes the use of nuclear weapons as follows:

It was as if all the natures forces have been suddenly unleashed. Something dazzling like the sun revolved in
circles. Burned with a heat of this weapon, the world was staggering, as in a fever.

Elephants caught fire from the heat and rushed wildly hither and thither in search of protection from the terrible
power. Water in the sea turned hot, the animals were dying, the foes were killed and trees were falling in rows
under the fury of the forest fire. Elephants blew their trunks fiercely and fell dead on the ground. Horses and
chariots were burned on the spot.

Thus, thousands of enemy chariots were destroyed, and then deep silence descended on the sea. Wind began
to blow and the earth shined. It was a terrible sight. The corpses of the fallen were mutilated by terrible heat so
that they no longer resembled people. Never before have we seen such a terrible weapon and did not hear
about it. (Drona-parva)

The Vedic texts contain a large number of descriptions of different types of weapons, ranging from primitive
stone throwing slings (sarvatobhadra), wall smashing mechanisms (udghatima), to all sorts of high velocity dart
throwing devices (yantra-sara), and ending with weapons which damaging force does not have modern
The tenth canto of Bhagavata Purana describes the various battles with weapons of extraordinary power.
Those battles were fought by our ancient ancestors inhabited the planet, as well as representatives from other

Then demon Bhaumasura immediately released the fire weapon, known as shatagnhi, by which
he could kill hundreds of soldiers with one stroke.

(Bhagavata purana 10.59.15)

There were weapons similar to raging natures forces.

He (Vasudeva) contaracted brahmastra with another brahmastra, and the air weapon with the
mountain weapon.

So on one side they used the vayavya-astra weapon, causing severe hurricane on the battlefield, and in order
to counteract it the opposite side immediately used the so-called mountain weapon which just like a
mountain could block the air flow and eliminate it completely.

The weapon shiva-jvara is described as heat, which is twelve times more powerful than heat of the sun, and
the weapon narayana-jvara represents the unbearable cold.

By that time, almost all the warriors of Shalva were killed, but when he saw that Vasudeva has
arrived on the battlefield, he set in motion a terrible weapon of extraordinary power, which flew with
a roar in the sky like a giant meteor. It shone with a dazzling, illuminating the sky

It is obvious that our ancestors were much more highly developed than we are today. Comparing to them we
look like babies, at least in technical terms.

It was not an easy task to enter into the city of Prajyotisha-pura, because it was very well fortified.
First of all, there were four formidable forts guarding the four directions of the city, and it was well-
protected on all sides by formidable military strength. The next boundary was a water canal all
around the city, and in addition the whole city was surrounded with electric wires. The next
fortification was of anila, a gaseous substance. After this, there was a network of barbed wiring
constructed by a demon of the name Mura. (Bhagavata Purana, 10 canto)

It appeared that the city was well-protected even in terms of todays scientific advancement.

In Vedic literature there are many references to flying saucers. In general, they are called the vimana. Vimanas
in the Vedas are divided into two categories:

1) the mechanical machines, similar to airplanes and flying with wings like a bird;

2) and very complex machines that can not be precisely classified, which had unlimited possibilities.

Machines of the first category are described mainly in medieval writings in Sanskrit, along with other various
automatic devices and military machines.
For example, Bhoja describes an aircraft made of lightwood, which looked like a bird with two wings. The
driving force of the apparatus was generated in the fire chamber with mercury, installed on it, as well as
flapping wings of the machine.

The devices of the second category are described in ancient books, such as the Rig Veda, the Mahabharata,
Ramayana and Puranas, and their description in many ways are similar to modern descriptions of UFOs. The
main work in Sanskrit, which includes the classification of ships of all kinds, is called Vimanika-shastra. This
work also reveals all sorts of technologies that are known today, such as telephone and television, though,
working on an entirely different, unknown to todays science principles.

Heres how the vimanas are described in the Ramayana:

The ship of Rakshasa king (type of demonic creatures) Ravana was amazing. Its walls were glittering,
incrusted with diamonds, and the windows were skillfully decorated with gold. The ship could fly in any
trajectory, regardless of wind direction, subject only to request of a pilot. He could stand still in the sky at any
height, resembling a great shining mountain. The ship had a symmetrical design; the towers of the great artistic
work were completed with domes, like mountain peaks. The viman could change its appearance through a
variety of devices. After landing, it could camouflage itself as a mountain, lit up by the risen moon. Inside this
beautiful spaceship resembled a palace with halls, rooms, swimming pools, etc.

When we think of our ancestors, according to modern tradition, the image suggests a primitive ape-man with a
hefty cudgel in his hands. However, the Vedic descriptions paint a different picture:

I have heard that Visvavasu, the great Gandharva (type of celestial singers), his mind stupefied with
infatuation, fell from his airplane after seeing your daughter playing with a ball on the roof of the
palace harmya-prishthe, for she was indeed beautiful with her tinkling ankle bells and her eyes
moving to and fro. (Bhagavata Purana 3.22.17)

(Artwork copyright Bhaktivedanta Book Trust International Used with permission)
It is understood that not only at the present moment but in those days also there were skyscrapers. Herein we
find the word harmya-prishthe. The literal translation of the word harmya is a very high palace. Svad vimanat
means from his own airplane. It is suggested that private airplanes existed several thousand years ago.

There are even descriptions of the whole flying cities, spreading for several square miles. For example,
Hastinapura a moving city, was well armed and protected against external enemies

Mathematics, mechanics and related engineering discipline could be raised to a new level thanks to the Vedic

In Sanskrit, a machine is called yantra which is explained in the Vedic literature as a device that controls and
directs the movement of objects in accordance with their characteristics.

There are many types of yantras. A simple example might be a taila-yantra the wheel, pushed by a bull in
circles for oil pressing from seeds. Technical devices and machines of the ancient Aryans still amaze us with
the level of their engineering skill. There are many plausible descriptions of robots, which were kept at the royal
palaces, such as singing and dancing birds, resembling the living ones, clocks with moving figures, and various
astronomical models, showing the motion of the planets.

There were robots designed in the form of male and female figures that performed various functions. They
were made mostly of wood, but perfectly covered with humanlike skin. Their motions were provided by the
system of bolts, iron rods, springs and grooves. These figures played musical instruments, served drinks to
guests and did other similar services.

Yantrapurusha or man-machine could behave exactly like a real human. It is described in Bhagaya-vastu how
an artist visited home of the yantracharya, or a teacher of mechanical engineering. There he was met by a
robot-girl who washed his feet and had a resemblance of a real person until he realized that she was unable to
speak. However, it is known that there were even speaking and absolutely fantastic sounding robots.

Are we able now, with all our modern science and computer technology, to repeat a similar level of inventive
skill? Can we believe that the technical progress, as it is described in the Vedas, has really existed on Earth?
Are Sanskrit texts the only proof of greatness of that ancient civilization?

In order to answer these questions, it would be sufficient to analyze briefly the most famous archaeological
monuments of antiquity. For example, in Delhi there is a metal column, known worldwide as a pillar of Indra.
For several millennia, it has resisted the influence of
precipitation, with no trace of rust. The column is made of atomic iron, without admixture of carbon and sulfur at
the molecular level. In our time, it is possible to reproduce such a perfectly pure iron only with the sputter
coating technique in the outer space and only in small quantities. The height of Indras pillar corresponds to
the three-storey house, in fact, the column goes under the earth for a few tens of meters. How did they do it,
what mechanisms were used to produce this miracle?

In the Hari Bhakti Vilas, written by Sanatana Goswami, it is said:

As bell metal (bronze) is turned into gold when mixed with mercury in an alchemical process, so in
that very way, by the process of proper initiation by a bona fide spiritual master diksa vidhanena, a
person becomes a brahmana.
(Hari Bhakti Vilasa 2.12)

The Vedas can give us tremendous knowledge, both material and spiritual. The greatest culture of people, who
could turn a simple bronze into gold, is definitely able to revive our morally degraded society and add great deal
of value to our lives.
