15,000 years ago the Rama Empire, which was a nation of highly sophisticated cities, developed on the Indian subcontinent. These cities can still be found in the deserts today.
Rama was governed by enlightened Priest-Kings and according to ancient
Indian texts people owned flying machines called Vimanas which are
described as circular double-deck aircraft with a dome and portholes; a
description extremely similar to the flying saucers that we know of
There are actually many ancient Indian texts written about Vimanas
including detailed flight manuals some of which have already been
translated into English. There are also at least four different types of
Vimana referred to including saucer-shaped and cigar-shaped.
In 1875 a text from the 4th century BC written by Bahardvajy the Wise,
known as the Vaimanika Sastra, was rediscovered in an Indian temple.
The text holds a lot of information regarding Vimanas including
information on steering, precautions for long-flight travel, protection
from storms and, perhaps rather amazingly, how to switch to solar
energy. The document has eight chapters including diagrams. Three aircraft are
described that allegedly use equipment that does not break or catch
According to the documents there are 31 parts and 16 materials
that absorb light and heat that are used to build Vimanas. A 1966 article written by Eklal Kueshana claims Vailixi were developed
in Atlantis 20,000 years ago. Kueshana wrote that most Vailixi were "saucer-shaped of generally trapezoidal cross-section with three
hemispherical engine pods on the underside. They use a mechanical
antigravity device driven by engines developing approximately 80,000
Documents which had been recovered from Lhasa, Tibet, were translated
into English by Dr. Ruth Reynor at the University of Chandrigarh. Reyna
claimed that the documents, which trace back to the 'Secret Society of
the Nine Unknown Men' which was set up by Indian Emporer, Ashoka, hold
instructions on how to build an aircraft with antigravity and
The document suddenly gained a lot of attention when it was announced
that China would be including parts of the information for study as part
of their space program.
The 'Secret Society of the Nine Unknown Men' consisted of great
scientists who intended to catalogue the various sciences. However,
Ashoka had a terrible fear that these advanced sciences could be taken
advantage of and could be used to create wars.
Ashoka was therefore highly determined to keep their work secret.
