"And to this day, [those] who...know the self as I am Brahman [IS-ness], become all this universe. Even the gods [any other dimensional beings] cannot prevent his becoming this, for he has become their Self. ...if a man worships another deity thinking: He is one and I am another, he does not know. He [who does not know] is like a sacrificial animal to the gods. As many animals serve a man, so does each man serve the gods. Even if one animal is taken away, it causes anguish to the owner; how much more so when many are taken away! Therefore it is not pleasing to the gods that men should know this [that they are IS-ness]."

Vedic Civilization, Extraterrestrial Life and Celestials

Numerous Vedic texts refer to flying saucers, UFOs or ‘vimanas’ traveling throughout earth’s skies. In some cases these flying saucers were so large as to actually be cities inhabited by thousands.

The inhabitants of these flying saucers, cities, etc., were given a wide array of names by Vedic authors, e.g., Asuras, Devas, Gandharvas, etc.

Some appeared to be indigenous to the Earth insofar as they controlled a particular city or region, while others were visitors from another world or dimension called a ‘loka’.

If Vedic sources are reliable, then ancient India was an open Galactic society with a great diversity of beings originating from different worlds or ‘lokas’ interacting in the development of human civilization.

  • Insofar as these beings required advanced technologies to move themselves through time and space, they can be regarded as extraterrestrials.

  • In cases where these beings could move between worlds without technology, they can be regarded as celestials.

Vedic texts describe the conflictual relationship between the Asuras and Devas who are depicted as the primary protagonists for control over Earth’s cities and other planets. The Asuras appeared intent on taking direct control over human cities and civilizations, and appear analogous to the Nephilim depicted in the Book of Enoch.

The Asuras used advanced technologies to invade different planets to establish direct control though interbreeding and the introduction of advanced technologies. Their chief protagonists, the Devas, also used advanced technologies in their perennial conflict with the Asuras.

In contrast to the Asuras, however, the Devas were intent on establishing what they called the Sanatana Dharma (eternal law) where righteous human rulers were in charge of Earth’s different kingdoms and civilizations. The Devas did not appear interested in ruling directly the Earth, and were content in ruling over their own world or realm called Devaloka.

In times when the Asuras had overrun the Earth and Devaloka itself, the Devas appealed for help from celestials. The celestials were typically the physical embodiment or incarnation of one of the three key Hindu gods, Shiva, Vishnu or Brahma or of a feminine divine being, the Devi or Shakti. The Puranas give numerous accounts of how the celestials would intervene in a time of cultural degeneracy to restore the Sanatana Dharma and help the Devas in their perennial conflict with the Asuras.

One example that highlights the perennial conflict between two groups of extraterrestrials (Asuras and Devas) with different intentions for Earth involves the celestial ‘Krishna’.

Just as the Book of Enoch described the Archangel Michael stoking conflict between children of extraterrestrial factions to rid the world of degenerate civilizations, so too Krishna performed a similar function according to the Bhagavata Purana:

When Vishnu incarnated himself as Krishna... he came to rid the Earth of her burden of evil, in the form of millions of demons [Asuras] born into the worlds as violent kshatriyas [warriors]. He stoked the greatest war of the age between the forces of good and evil, at which Yuddishtira’s Pandava legions decimated the Kauravas and their immense host.

Here the reference is to the Mahabharata wherein a great war involving advanced technologies led to the decimation of Asura dominated kingdoms in ancient India.

Numerous references in the Mahabharata refer to the destructiveness of the advanced weapons used, some of which appeared to be atomic in nature as evidenced in the following passage:

Gurkha flying in his swift and powerful Vimana hurled against the three cities of the Vrishis and Andhakas a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe.

An incandescent column of smoke and flame as bright as the thousand suns rose in all its splendor... a perpendicular explosion with its billowing smoke clouds... the cloud of smoke rising after its first explosion formed into expanding round circles like the opening of giant parasols...

It was the unknown weapon, the 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. The hair and nails fell out; pottery broke without 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 their equipment.

The above passage almost certainly describes ancient nuclear warfare and indicates how advanced technologies were routinely used in Vedic India for destructive purposes.

It appears that celestials such as Krishna intervened to bring about the end to civilizations that had not found the right balance between advanced technologies and higher states of consciousness.

Ancient historic texts such as the Vedas and Book of Enoch describe what appears to be a perennial conflict between the use of advanced technologies introduced by some extraterrestrials (Asuras/Nephilim), and ethical development emphasized by other extraterrestrial groups (Devas).

When technological and ethical development are seriously imbalanced, it appears that celestials are prepared to intervene even if this results in an end to the civilization in question. While most of humanity struggles to accept the reality of visiting extraterrestrial life, secret government/corporate entities have been developing and using advanced extraterrestrial technologies.

The lack of transparency in such classified extraterrestrial technology projects leads to the conclusion that these are being used in highly unethical ways as a number of whistleblowers have claimed. Disclosure of extraterrestrial life is vital for ensuring that extraterrestrial technologies are used in ethically responsible ways.

Not to do so is to risk following the path of earlier earth civilizations that failed to develop into mature galactic societies and violently imploded. (See video Ancient Aliens)
