Vaimanika Shastra
By Pandit Subbaraya Shastry
Translated by G.R.Josyer
Printed at The Coronation Press, Mysore - 1973

The Vaim?nika Sh?stra ( ??????? ???????, lit. "shastra on the topic of Vimanas"; sometimes also rendered Vimanika, Vymanika) is an early 20th century Sanskrit text on aeronautics obtained by psychic channeling and automatic writing. It makes the claim that the vim?nas mentioned in ancient Sanskrit epics were advanced aerodynamic flying vehicles, similar to a rocket.

The existence of the text was revealed in 1952 by G. R. Josyer who asserted that it was written by Pandit Subbaraya Shastry (18661940), who dictated it during the years 19181923. A Hindi translation was published in 1959, while the Sanskrit text with an English translation was published in 1973. It contains 3000 shlokas in 8 chapters which Shastry claimed was psychically delivered to him by the ancient Hindu sage Bharadvaja.The text has gained favor among proponents of ancient astronaut theories.

A 3000 sholka text in Sanskrit in 20th century is a massive achievement (even if it talked about something trivial) -- my *suspicion* is that the transmission has been through a much older text. It would be amazing to know the roots of this text and from where it did originate.
