Colony Earth: Science in The Vedas - Part 2


The incompleteness of modern science as noted by Roger Penrose is quoted in the foreword to K.D. Verma’s book on Vedic Physics: “A scientific world-view which does not profoundly come to terms with the problem of conscious minds can have no serious pretentions to completeness.”

The sages who composed the Rig Veda would not have been fragmented into compartmentalized thinking. They would have been adepts, seers, and masters of both metaphysics and physics. I feel that the Rig Veda will one day be understood as evidence of a far more technologically advanced civilization. India has already been recognized as the guardian of universal metaphysics.

K.D. Verma writes that one of the greatest scholars of the Vedic modern age was Maharshi Dayananda Sarasvati, who “declared that Veda is the book of all true sciences. He emphatically maintained that in ancient India there were aircrafts in use.” The word VIMANA (aircraft, “a carrier built upon bird engineering”) is found in many Sanskrit texts and there are various descriptions of ‘aerial’ ships in the Mahabharata. The Sanskrit word VIMANA is sometimes translated as temple, but more often as aerial ship – meaning a craft that flies high in the sky. The ancient Sanskrit texts are full of references to these flying VIMANAS.

For example in the MAHABHARATA …they again took to their city and employing their…wizardry flew up to the sky, city and all…their celestial, divinely effulgent, airborne city, which could move about at will. Now it would go underground, then hover high in the sky, go diagonally with speed, or submerge in the ocean. [3(35)170.20-25]  

On this sun-like, divine, wonder-working chariot [Arjuna] flew joyously upward, while becoming invisible to the mortals who walked on earth, he saw wondrous airborne chariots by the thousands. [3(32)43], translated by J.A.B. van Buitenen.

 The Mahabharata remains my favourite book. I have taken considerable liberty to offer you many amazing, fascinating and perplexing quotations from two translations of the Mahabharata - M.N. Dutt and J.A.B. van Buitenen. I hope you read them with an open mind, or better through the lens of science fiction. I believe these descriptions are our 'memory' of previous cycles of time, before we became imprisoned in five-sense perception — memory of a time when we knew and experienced other dimensional realities, aerial ships, orbiting mother ships which in the epic are called aerial cities, radiation weaponry, invisibility cloaking, and even the use of projecting holographic illusions on a battle field to confuse the enemy.

I include this first quotation because it is so similar to many others that speak of 'red rain' including the Fatima prophecies. This phenomena of red rain appears to be embedded in our DNA racial memory around the planet:

[before the great war] All direction of the earth, covered by showers of dust appears greatly inauspicious. Fearful clouds, foreboding evil, pour showers of blood in the night.

M.N. Dutt, Bhisma Parva, Ch.3.29


Weapons given to Arjuna in Indra’s heaven: He [Arjuna] received from the hands of Shakra (Indra) his favourite Vajra (thunder) weapon of irresistible force and also those lightning of tremendous roars, flashes of which are bespoken (by the appearance) of clouds and (the dancing) of peacocks.

M.N. Dutt, Vana Parva, Ch.44.4


Krisna speaks of his battle with an aerial city: [He imagines he has been defeated] The conclusion dawned on my mind that it had been wizardry and I woke up [and returned to do battle]…I [Krishna] shot well-robed arrows, which looked like poisonous snakes, high-flying and burning arrows… Then the Saubha [aerial city] became invisible…concealed by wizardry…I quickly laid on an arrow, which killed by seeking out sound…all…lay dead.

…a new noise arose…In all ten directions and sideways and upward the Asuras screamed. …Suddenly the Saubha, which could go anywhere, reappeared…blinding my eyes. …I was bombarded on all sides by a rain of mountains…until I was completely invisible. …Then I took out my favourite weapon which would cut through any rock, and raising my thunderbolt, shattered all the mountains.

…then I [Krishna] took my favourite fire weapon…my honed-edged stainless discus, the like of Time… I pronounced a spell on this … Then furiously hurled it…in the sky… It approached the now lacklustre Saubha [aerial city] and aloft it cut it in two as a saw cuts a log.

J.A.B.van Buitenen, 3. The Book of the Forest, The Razing of Saubha, 23.


In the Adi Parva is the story of two Rishis fighting over a ‘cow’ named Nandini who has extraordinary powers. The Sanskrit word for cow has many meanings, one of which is ‘star’ perhaps originally a poetic reference to stars as ‘herds in the sky’ moving across the night sky.

The great Rishi Vishvamitra [who composed hymns of Mandala III in the Rig Veda] covets the cow “Nandini as white as the swan or the moon.” Vishvamitra is a Kshatriya warrior king and attempts to steal Nandini by force. “He dragged her hither and thither and afflicted her…”

The cow Nandini is said to have “six elevated limbs” and is loyal to the Brahman Rishi Vasishtha, who states “this milk-giving cow is kept by me for the purposes of the celestials.” The cow refuses to be taken and “Blazing in anger, she soon became fearful to look as the Sun at mid day. She began an incessant shower burning coals from her tail.” She then brings forth armies from her tail, her udders, her womb, her dung, her urine, from her sides, and the froth in her mouth. The armies of the Kshatriya warrior king Visvamitra flee in terror, and Visvamitra gives up his kingdom and sees “asceticism is true strength.”

M.N. Dutt, Adi Parva, Ch.175


In The Book of the Effort, there is a conversation between the great seer Narada and Malati, who is the charioteer [astronaut pilot] for Indra. Matali is seeking a suitable marriage for his “unsurpassed in beauty” daughter in the World of Snakes. Together the two “enter earth” to explore the World of the Snakes and “Narada gave the charioteer a complete explanation of all the creatures that dwell inside the earth.”

Narada: “Behold the solid gold palace of Varuni… Here live the tribes of the Rakshasa and Bhutas, who wield celestial weapons but were defeated by previous gods. Here a brilliant fire lies awake in the sea of Varuna, and also Vishnu’s discus, which is permeated by smokeless fire. Here is a bow…fashioned for the destruction of the world…known as the bow Gandiva. Whenever the occasion arises, it wields the power of a hundred thousand vital breaths, always and assuredly.”

“Here in the umbrella room stands the umbrella of the King of Waters… The water that falls from this umbrella is pure as the moon, but being obfuscated by darkness it cannot be seen.”

“This grand city is renowned Hiranyapura of the Daityas and Danavas, who roam around with a range of a hundred illusions. …those golden and silver mansions…shine as though made of…the stars themselves. They appear sun-like, and resemble a blazing fire…” [Perhaps these are descriptions of self-luminous realms in various dimensions.]

J.A.B. van Buitenen, 5. The Book of the Effort, Matali.


Ajuna: The demons, concealed from view, began fighting by the help of illusion. I also by the power of invisible weapons (i.e. weapons operating on unseen objects) fought with them. And by means of arrows duly shot from the Gandiva, I cut off their heads… thus struck dead by me, all on a sudden, forsook their illusion and entered into their own city.

M.N. Dutt, Vana Parva, Ch, 127


Arjuna: Thereupon, Matali had me speedily conveyed by that celestials car …towards Hiranyapura. …with blazing arrows I cut off, by hundreds, the heads… Thus smitten…taking refuge in that city, again rose up in the sir with it, by the help of illusion peculiar to the Danavas.

…I [Arjuna] obstructed their movement. (But) the sons of Diti, on the strength of their boon, easily supported themselves on the celestials and aerial city of sun-like splendour and moving at will. At one time it plunged into the earth and then rose up in the air again, now it took a curved direction and then again submerged under water.

…I [Arjuna] assailed that city…by showers of arrows, shot from celestial weapons. (And) that city…fell to the ground.

Then, Matali, soaring to the heavens, as if taking a leap in front, speedily came down to the earth on the chariot effulgent as the sun.

[The battle continues]: But the thousands of weapons, discharged by those car warriors…gradually repelled my celestials weapons; and I beheld hundreds of thousands…sorely afflicted me [Arjuna] …thereupon mustering up courage…sent that mighty weapon which is named RUDRA…I beheld a person with three heads, nine eyes…hair as blazing as the sun or fire…for his clothing he wore huge serpents issuing out their tongues.

Then…beholding that terrible and eternal Rudra and shaking off my fear, I fixed it on the Gandiva…I discharged it…No sooner had I hurled it, than it at once assumed a thousand shapes. …I killed all the Danavas in a moment.

Matali praises Arjuna: This great aerial city, indestructible by the gods and the Asuras, has been destroyed by you. [Arjuna's father was the god Indra and his mother the human female Kunti.]

M.N. Dutt, Vana Parva, Ch. 173


Why have these stories been dismissed as myth? Is it because their implications threaten religion and the authority of world governments? In my view, 6000 years ago the peoples of India either were far more advanced than NASA and then somehow mysteriously forgot — or the Mahabharata is the history of and evidence for an off-world civilization that did colonize this planet. Where are they now? Well, ask the millions who have seen them in our skies.

When will we find the courage to lift the Veils of delusion, break out of the confines of what we have been indoctrinated to accept as Earth’s history, and come to the realization that it is absurd to imagine we are alone in a universe with 300+ billion galaxies.

Arjuna provided the Karma Philosophy in discussion that was done with Lord, enjoy life with right Karma....thank you. I could say a lot updating Both Ramayana and Mahabharata, but it would cause severe issues with both West and East, for now this is it.
