I recently watched Sadhguru's video on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxPlm44PCK0) where he said that Pushpak Viman(aeroplanes) was already built by us in Vedic Era.

I am aware that our great history has done many developments in various fields for example,in medicine(ayurveda),mathematics,space exploration,etc..which is in use even till this date,but it is present today, because the knowledge was taught and passed on to future generations.

My question: Is it possible that many of our great ancestors had already invented things that the world is yet to see and written about the inventions in some books or manuscripts and was forgotten?

If yes,is it possible for me to find such manuscripts and try to revive them?

  • Vimanas are sacred vehicles and while they may have some similarities to modern-day airplanes they are of divine origin. Also, historically, no such device existed within ancient India at all. It would also be extremely unfair to steal credit from modern scientists of various backgrounds who helped improve aeronautics. I believe Vimanas existed as did Vanaras and Asuras. Still, historically, there is no evidence and even if there was we shouldn't downplay the ingenuity be it a lack of morality in today's humans.
