New Evidence: Ancient Indian Science of Space Travel!

Directions for building interstellar spaceships. 'Anti-gravitational' method of propulsion. An ancient manuscript written in the 4th Century BC Discovered in Tibet and Lhasa by the Chinese. The frontiers of what is possible in science are being stretched. Read on…

While the world is busy launching spacecrafts into the unknown universe the Chinese discover something in the mountains of Tibet and Lhasa. They are a bundle of strange Sanskrit documents!

The documents are sent to Dr. Ruth Reyna, University of Chandigarh, for translation and special comments. Dr. Reyna's findings are eye opening. She declares that the manuscripts contain the following:

1. Directions for building interstellar spaceships with a method of propulsion that are essentially anti-gravitational. The method was similar to that of laghima, the power of man's ego. It is described as 'a centrifugal force strong enough to counteract all gravitational pull'. Hindu Yogis claim it is a man's laghima that allows for his body to levitate (rise defying gravity).

2. These machines are called astras!

3. The text also contains claims that ancient Indians could havesent detachments of men onto any planet.

4. The secrets of antima (cover of invisibility) and of garima (method of making one's body as heavy as 'a mountain of lead') are revealed.The Chinese are including certain parts of this data intheir space program research and study.

5. It has mention of a planned trip to the moon.

12 Mar 2004 @ 02:47 by Paul Ramirez @ : The KONSHUR \ consur??? Tibeten
Does anyone know the name of the Ancient manuscript found in tibet and Lhasa??? I heard a sanscrit version barey decrypted exists called something sounding like the "konshur or consur" or something to that effect any idea out there. It has info something like the mahabarata...

Thanks for any help on that name???  

30 Aug 2004 @ 10:00 by surendra varma @ : can i know
can any one mail me Dr Ruth Reyna (university of chandigarh maile Id)  

27 Oct 2004 @ 09:39 by Arjuna @ : Dr. Ruth Reyna's e-mail?
Does anyone know how to contact Dr. Reyna? E-mail address would be best, but any means of contact are welcome.  

4 Jan 2005 @ 01:31 by Mike @ : existance unknown
Does anyone even know wheiter Dr Ruth even exists?
I read she's supposed to be (have been) a teacher in philosophy at Chandigarh university, however she isn't listed on their site as a teacher anywhere.
If anyone feels like it, I suggest heading over there and check how they organise their mail accounts or asking their webmaster. I didn't find any personel webspace of her there either though.

Besides, what would you guys do if you got her e-mail?
Ask her if she has any copies of her top secret documents that she's translating for the Chinese laying around?

Ah wel, good luck to you guys anyway. And remember: sharing is caring :p  

1 Nov 2005 @ 05:13 by justin @ : Dr. Ruth Reyna
My guess is the Govt. (probably USA) kidnapped her, exploited her for her knowledge then locked her away in a nut house.

again its just a 'probable' guess...hehe  

13 Sep 2006 @ 17:28 by Rohit @ : Existance of Dr. Ruth Reyna
I enquired personaly and came to know that there's NO such entity currently exists or existed in past in Punjab University.  

25 Mar 2007 @ 23:51 by Jason Keita Karamo @ : VIMANAS OR ASTRAS
I find all the ancient information pointing to supeior technology exciting and intuitively true in adeep soul level.I would like to read acopy of the original manuscripts.  

10 Apr 2007 @ 23:17 by Jesse @ : Ancient space travel
I hope this is true and one day in the future we find a planet with Indian civilization on it =D  

14 Apr 2007 @ 12:37 by Eklavya Yadav @ : a fact
I dont know if this whole story is true or not but I'd like to say that 'Time' changes and so does our perception. In any era, any part of humanity feeds of a specific energy level of the ether, known as 'bramh' in sanskrit. Time changes so does the anchoring of the humanity in the oblivion.
So way back in past what was happening is still happening but on a different level.

23 May 2007 @ 14:05 by jason keita karamo @ : astras and vimanas astral realm
The thoughts that eklavya yadav expressed were brilliant!!! and connected with my intuitive level of understanding that the akashic level of existence provides since i agree with his point that time changes as well as our perception and also that visualization creates areality or space different from our linear conciousness of reality,space and time the only way we could be pointing to the evidence of ancient superior technology is unless we are sublimimally and intuitively connecting with our ancestors version of what already happened thousands of years ago our technological society and the glaring inconsistencies that we posses technologically ;we can't cure a cold but we can perform succesful heart transplants!!!think it is that way because we are only discovering bits and pieces and gaps of old technology taken out of contex!!!think again!!!if according to the ancient texts our ancestors believed inteaching three components spiritual,mental and physical the three main elements in all the universe(s)then how could it be logical to anyone with half abrain who believes in spirit which ether comes out of that using only mental to define science that we reached higher than the ancient indians and atlanteans? they were using more of their "mind"the inclusion of both hemispheres of their brain in such a way as to allow the corpus collosum to relax and provide a more spherical understanding of the universe(s) we talk about the people who said the world was flat hundreds of years ago but we are still as modern scientists and philosophers using rigid nonconforming cubical reasoning to attempt to acheive spherical technological advancements and it si impossible to do without throwing magor energy vortexes and meridians out of line our present global warming pollution and wars are all glaring examples of that.  

15 Aug 2007 @ 17:04 by Neeraj @ : >
Idea and concept is Quiet interesting but its all

14 Apr 2008 @ 05:55 by Tarun Batra @ : CHAK DE INDIA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This article shows INDIAN achievements i ancient times !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

2 Jul 2008 @ 15:34 by Oli @ : Vimanas
Im quite upset to hear that this Dr Ruth Reyna may not excist as its incredibly interesting and deep down i wish such a culture excists/excisted.

How ever, i thought i might share, some sites that claim the Sankrit texts describe these fyling machines or "Vimanas" show remarkable similarities to what i belive to be a UFO described in the Bible; Ezekiel 1:4 (I think!)

What else is fascinating about the ancient Indian civilization is in the way it ended, the sankrit texts seem to desribe the population being wiped out, with what you could only today think of as an atomic bomb. Recent scientists have also found high radioaction levels on the sight. However all sites i can find on it are UFO uncovered type sights which i often question the reliability of. Any more info would be greatly appreciated :D

sorry wrong email address above, please use this one!!!  

4 Dec 2008 @ 11:23 by P. R. damle @ : space science in ancient India
we should have a special CELL in ISRO to examine our ancient documents on space science in ancient India....  

6 Mar 2009 @ 12:31 by Swami Nirliptananda @ : Dr Ruth Reyna
Dr Ruth Reyna did live and she has been a dear friend of mine for many years. She contributed many important articles to our journal HINDUISM which was circulated to US university and public libraries. If the records of these libraries are searched her articles will definitely be found. I lost touch of her about 20 years ago. I am surprise that the Publisher Munshiram is not aware of her existence.

I am just intrigue to know if she is still alive. I possess many correspondences from her.

Too much of knowledge in a dangerous subject is not good for the entire human race. God sometimes gives such people who know too much to the sword or other calamities and wipes them off. Look at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, humans are not evolved to handle such complex and dangerous technologies.

17 Feb 2010 @ 17:52 by sach @ : Swami Nirliptananda
Swami Nirliptananda it would be nice if you posted the link of the HINDUISM journal. I did a Google search but cant find it.  

25 Apr 2010 @ 18:06 by Manohar @ : University of Chandigarh
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Please tell me where is university of Chandigarh?? have never heard such name as no such university exists therefore there is no Dr. Ruth ???? Reyna. What kind of a name is Ruth? I have never come across such name in Inadian context. Fools are going to take over the world?  

18 May 2010 @ 15:38 by divine intervention @ : She is legitimate author
Ruh reyna is a legitimate author who has written books on indian philosophy and re-incarnation, maya, vedas. Please search on amazon and you will find 6-7 of books written by her although pretty old.  

8 Oct 2010 @ 11:20 by Swami Nirliptananda @ : Dr Ruth Reyna
Dr Reyna has been a dear friend of mine and she has contributed a number of articles on Hinduism to our journal- HINDUISM The World's Oldest Faith. This journal was ciculated to Western and Eastern universities and public libraries including the British Museum. One her articles: The Sociel Character Of Hindu Philosophy Part I, issue N0. 66, published January-February 1975.  

14 Oct 2010 @ 16:10 by Lanka @ : King Rwana's aircraft
In Sri Lanka, there are lot of facts about ancient flying vehicles, landing zones, engineering blue prints and the Vimana aircraft of king Rawna which may even exists today. but no body has done a proper research on this.  

5 Nov 2010 @ 16:57 by Bom Shiva @ : Ruth Reyna

10 Sep 2011 @ 08:37 by Steve @ : Evidence?
Time for a sanity check. Is there any evidence at at all that these documents are not just the earliest works of science fiction?  

19 Jan 2014 @ 04:27 by sourabh patil @ : huge knowledge of indians
