“…a single projectile…Charged with all the power of the Universe…” Does this verse from the ancient Mahabharata sound anything like a description of a weapon?
Even Manhattan Project chief scientist Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer –who was apparently familiar with ancient Sanskrit writings knew that atomic blasts had occurred in the distant past on Earth.
In an interview conducted after he watched the first atomic test, he quoted from the Bhagavad Gita:
“‘Now I am become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds.’ I suppose we all felt that way.”
Furthermore, when a student asked Dr. Oppenheimer if the first nuclear device that went off was the one at Alamogordo. during the Manhattan Project, he responded… Well … yes. In modern times, yes, of course.
Written in the Ramayana –an ancient Indian epic poem which narrates the struggle of the divine Prince Rama to rescue his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana—we find more interesting details which apparently also describe powerful ancient weapons:
“(It was a weapon) so powerful that it could destroy the earth in an instant–
A great soaring sound in smoke and flames– And on it sits death…”.
According to many authors and researchers, not only does the Mahabharata describe powerful ancient weaponry used by the ‘Gods,’ but is shows clear evidence of atomic blast that occurred tens of thousands of years ago.
Looking at the translated version of the Mahabharata, many agree that it evidently describes how ‘Gods’ used advanced weapons on Earth tens of thousands of years ago. The catastrophic events that rocked the continents are described in the following way:
Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful Vimana, hurled a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor.
It was an unknown weapon and iron thunderbolt,
a gigantic messenger of death, which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas.
The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable.
Their hair and nails fell out.
Pottery broke without any 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 all their equipment.
This epic, ancient battle, is described in great detail in the Drona Parva –the seventh of eighteen books of the Indian epic Mahabharata. According to historian and translator Kisari Mohan Ganguli, the secret ancient Hindu writings are full of such descriptions.
