Report of The Lecture Program Organized by
WAVES – India
Er. Rakesh Maniktala, Hollow Earth Researcher and Manager (Business
Excellence) BHEL, Haridwar was invited by WAVES to give a power point
presentation on ‘Life in Universe – A Vedic View’ on 6th March, 2009 at
Arya Samaj, Punjabi Bagh, New Delhi. The program of special lecture was
chaired by Mr. Rohit Chauhan, cofounder and trustee, Global Synergy
Foundation, Scottsdale , AZ , USA . The program started with Vedic
invocation performed by students of University of Delhi . After which Dr.
Shashi Tiwari, Secretary, WAVES introduced the guests and Mr Rajiv Arya,
President, Arya Samaj, Punjabi Bagh formally welcomed all the participants
present in the hall..
Mr Rakesh Maniktala gave an illustrative and informative presentation,
summary of which is given here: Introduction: The past 2000 years have
seen a steady and systematic growth in our perception and knowledge
regarding the nature of universe. Ptolemy considered the Earth to be the
centre of the universe, with all other planets, the sun, moon and stars
revolving around it in concentric circles. Fifteen hundred years later,
Copernicus shifted the position of Earth from the centre of the universe to
the third planet around the sun which he thought to be at the centre of the
universe. Now we know, as modern astronomy has shown our solar system
to be "just another one" in one of the side arms of our Milky Way galaxy,
which in turn is just one of the millions of galaxies in this vast and
expanding universe. Then for hundreds of years our Earth was considered a
"flat plane", until Galileo and Magellan proved it to be spherical in shape..
Advent of time and progress of science has broken many such myths. Now
is the time for breaking of some more myths.
Myth 1 - Our Earth is Hollow: Our Earth is HOLLOW inside, with a
small SUN at its centre, and two holes in its crust at the locations of the
north and south poles. Most other planets and the moon are also hollow. For
a planet, the outside or the inside surface may be suitable for life. For our
Earth both the surfaces support life - in fact, the interior is more suitable for
life as it is protected from outside natural calamities and the climatic
changes. We know that the diameter of Earth is around 12,800 kilometers.
The hollow Earth's crust thickness is roughly 1400 kilometers, leaving an
inside diameter of around 10,000 kilometers, which is about three times the
diameter of moon. And considering that the inner ocean area is much less
compared to the inner landmass, we have more land to live on the "inside"
than we have on the "outside". The small sun at the centre gives off a soft
and pleasant sunlight and warmth, making the inside surface highly
conducive to growth of vegetation and human life, with only a long-long day
and no nights.
Bhagwat Purana refers to the hollow portion of earth as “Madhyatah”. The
wording and story line of the narration about the avatar Parasurama getting
rid of the “Prithvim” and Madhyatah of “kshatriyas” is directly indicative of
the Hollow Earth Theory. Human culture is prospering in the inside for tens
of thousands of years. They are peace-loving beings, highly advanced
spiritually and scientifically. The inner kingdom is also referred to as
AGARTHA and its biggest city Shambhala has its intergalactic spaceship
centre teeming with what we call as UFO's.
Pataal Lokas: There are also huge caverns in the crust of our hollow earth,
which are referred to as Pataal Lokas. There are over 120 subterranean cities
located within the Earth’s crust. These Cities of Light are not far beneath the
Earth’s surface. As a grouping, these cities are called the Agartha Network.
The beings of inner earth and Pataal lokas are highly evolved beings. They
are mostly ascended souls who have chosen to continue their evolution in
the Earth’s inner recesses because of the perfection of conditions existing
Myth 2 - We are alone in this universe: Human race on our planet Earth,
and its scientific advancement, are much older than our history textbooks tell
us. In ancient history, there have been times when our culture was highly
advanced – scientifically as well as spiritually. There were environment
friendly and unlimited resources of energy. People travelled to farthest stars
and solar systems in sophisticated “Vimanas”, and by astral travelling. They
had mastered anti-gravity, and had contacts with other advanced
civilizations of the universe. But human culture and its development always
follow a sine wave. People leave the middle path tilting more towards
materialism, and knowledge decays. There were natural calamities due to
toying with environment, and nuclear wars, resulting in total destruction.
Radioactivity mutated human genes and so there were primitive Neanderthal
men. Documentary evidence for this is not available today, but information
in symbolic or parable form, as well as from some ancient cave paintings
and monuments is still available in some ancient civilizations like Maya,
Inca, Meso America , India and Tibet . Our Puranas also contain a lot of
Finally, they are trying to contact us: But if there are intelligent people
living inside, why are they hiding from us - why not just come out and meet
us? Long ago, we were all the "same"….. at par maybe. But after the
destruction of Mu and Atlantis 12000 years ago, and later the Mahabharata
war 5000 years ago, which were both nuclear wars resulting in massive
destruction; we got cut off from the inner world. It was our "fall from grace"
which resulted in them leaving us like this.
Also, our Milky Way Galaxy is divided into 12 sectors. Our solar system is
located in Sector Nine, and this sector contains hundreds of other solar
systems. The Ashtar Command, also known as the Galactic Command, is
composed of millions of starships and volunteers from many star systems
and dimensions in our galaxy. Vedic culture prospers on many star systems;
especially star Vega, the “Abhijeet Nakshatra”. Now, some people from the
inner civilizations are telepathically communicating with some on earth.
And the time for their re-emergence and our unification is not far away,
provided we mend some of our ways - abolish wars, and embrace peace.
Many questions, queries and comments from the learned audience were
raised after the presentation under discussion session. Mr. H.L. Kohli asked-
Can it be considered the reason of global worming? Dr Ganesh Dutt Sharma
supported some of the views of the lecture quoting Vedic verses. Dr. S. C.
Goswami questioned about the status of sun inside hallow earth. Shri
Sobodh Kumar, Mr. S. K. Kochar, Mr. Durga, Mr. Chand Bhardwaj and
some other scholars also expressed their views on the lecture.
Shri Rohit Chauhan, Chairman commented minutely on the discussion and
finally gave his remarks : Going beyond the controversy of hollow earth, it
is clear that superior sixth sensory communication skills are a requirement
for humanity to take the next leap forward. Practical assistance for
implementation of Vedic values in daily life would help. Perhaps WAVES
can contribute at the desired fundamental level, in addition to usual scholarly
pursuits for the scholars.
A large number of Vedic scholars, scientists and academicians were present
on this occasion. Concluding the program Mr. Rajiv Arya proposed a vote of
