Hollow Earth in the Puranas

by Dean Dominic de Lucia

From the Foreword:

"In this age of ever-increasing knowledge and technical expertise, of discovery heaped upon discovery, if becomes more clear all the time that the more we learn, the less we know--each new and startling archeological or astronomical discovery only raises more questions, more possibilities, and more horizons to be sought by questing minds.

The ancient legends and myths of the great religions and folk traditions of the world tell us of marvelous things, tales that, until very recently were considered within the realm of fantasy and not reality by the self-anointed "wise" of our rationalist age--cities which were swallowed by the sea, or an engulfing Earth itself; populated underworlds of varied descriptions, some paradisical, others more hellish; non-human beings with the ability to fly, to travel to nearby planets, or under the sea, or beneath the ground, and with an interest, and urge to interfere, in the destiny of human beings or human history.

---One area which has been largely overlooked by the Western researcher in folk, paranormal, and "earth mystery" matters, is that of the Hindu traditions, specifically, the Vedas and the Puranas. These incredible works speak of an ancient time, a time of "gods" and "demons" in physical bodies, interacting with, marrying, abducting, going to war with, human beings. The "ancient ones" came from a variety of "worlds" (or worlds within the one we know), and in a variety of forms.

The Vedic and Puranic accounts make this clear, and show us parallels between these "ancient" forms, and those seen by eyewitnesses and experiencers today---"
- Wm Michael Mott, author of Caverns, Cauldrons & Concealed Creatures



So often in the off-mainstream, alternative avenues of news and information, we see debunking occurring in relation phenomena such as the Apollo-landings, the theory of evolution, and UFO studies; and there seem to be cover-ups as well, for example, certain NASA satellite pictures and the hollow Earth. This type of alternative debunking naturally piques our curiosity, but the question arises, why should a Vishnu devotee concern him or herself?

In the Sixth chapter, tenth verse of Gita, doesn't Shree Krishna tell us that a yogi" should live alone in a secluded place ... and be free from desires and feelings of possessiveness"? We already know that the materialists jockey for position amongst themselves and engage in various machinations for agrandizement. We know this because we can see it and because Shree Krishna confirms this in the 16th chapter of Gita where HE delineates on the divine and demoniac natures. So why get involved or keep abreast?

Just as Krishna teaches us that the spiritual world is a world of variety, we must know that there is variety in terms of perspectives, too. For example, the Vaishnava literature tells us that a devotee should remain humble if he himself be criticized or attacked, but that that same devotee should react like a lion if another devotee were attacked in some way. And doesn't Shree Krishna urge Arjuna to fight under various religious and moral justifications?

So for what reason should a devotee of Vishnu/Krishna bother taking up the fight against the propaganda of untruthful institutions, scientific and otherwise? The devotee should do so in order to preserve and protect dharma, religion- in the ultimate issue, his belief system. Otherwise, his belief system and its practice will be more and more minimized and forgotten.

As an example, every religion suffers due to the pragmatic presentation of Darwinian biologists and chemists. They claim that consciousness is generated from matter. What's worse is that their claims are presented in our educational systems as if they were already proven fact. This is so even though no scientist has created consciousness in a laboratory. If we give the atheist enough chemicals, can he combine them and produce consciousness? The answer is no. But this other side of the coin is not emphasized in mainstream science, and one has to venture far to hear what most scientific, educational and governmental institutions don't include in their presentations.

One of this writer's favorite examples is of the British conquest of India. They deciphered Sanskrit and interpreted the Puranas. They read about flying vehicles, weapons which persue enemies, arrows which drill into the ground and weapons activated by mantra. Then, with their pragmatic understandings, the British minimized the Vedic literature and made a mockery it. But now we witness aircraft, guided weapons, and voice-activated weapons, and the U.S. armed forces are even experimenting with missiles which drill into the ground several hundred meters before exploding their warheads. Now we have a different perspective on these Vedic descriptions.

In the same way, dharma now faces a different challenge. For example, the Puranas describe luxurient vegetation on the Moon as well as beautiful gardens, lakes and parks. But Apollo astronauts have supposedly gone to the Moon and found no life and no water. This would seem to spell the end of any credence that one could put in the Puranas, and from that point onwards, Vedic dharma becomes a laughing stock. Even so, when A C. Bhaktivedanta Swami was informed that astronomers had sent astronauts to the Moon and had reported that there was no life, he answered that"They are hardly conversant with the planet on which they are living"and also"They never went to the Moon."This was back in the early 70s.

Now, 30 years later, when we investigate alternate analyses on the Apollo landings, what do we find? We find obvious incongruencies. We find pictures of the LEM rocket engine sitting a meter above the Lunar soil, with no disturbance underneath from its blast. We find pictures showing glare- lateral scattering of light- although no atmosphere is supposed to exist on the Moon. We see astronauts on even flat Lunar surfaces with shadows of different lengths angling off in different directions- all this with supposedly one light source shining from one direction, the Sun.

Donna Tietze, a former NASA employee at the Johnson Space Flight Center, offered the following testimony in a radio interview with WOL radio in Washington, D.C., on May 6, 1995. ( Transcripts available from WOL Radio ).

"During the Apollo mission I worked at NASA throughout those Apollo missions and I did leave NASA at the time the space shuttles began. I worked in building eight in the photo lab. I had a secret clearance so I thought I could go anywhere in the building. And I did go into one area that was a restricted area. In this area they developed pictures taken from satellites and also all of the missions, the Apollo missions, flight missions. I went in and I was talking to one of the photographers and developers and he was putting together a mosaic which is a lot of photos, smaller photos into a larger photo pattern. And while I was in there I was trying to learn new methods and new things about the whole organization and I was looking at the pictures and he directed my attention to one area, he said, Look at that. I looked and there was a round oval shaped, well it was very white circular shape of a dot and I, it was black & white photography, so I asked him if that was a spot on the emulsion and he said, well I can't tell you but spots on the emulsion do not leave round circles of shadows. E.D.: So there was a shadow on the ground? D.T.: Right, a round shadow!

And I noticed that there were pine trees, now I don't know where this area was or what, you, pretty close to the ground what I saw but I didn't see outline of the continent. But I did notice that there was shadow under this white dot and I also noticed that the trees were casting the shadows in the same direction as this shadow of the circle of this aerial phenomena because it was higher than the trees but not too much higher than the trees but it was close to the ground and it was spherical but slightly elongated, not very much but slightly. I then said, is it a UFO? And he said, Well I can't tell you. And then I asked him, what are you going to do with this piece of information? And he said, well we have to airbrush these things out before we sell these photographs to the public. So I realized at that point that there is a procedure setup to take care of this type of information from the public."

World-wide cover ups by the powers-that-be seem to be implicit when we talk about false Moon landings or doctored up NASA space photos. Maybe investigations along these lines will help followers of Vedic dharma to see through the labyrinth of untruth surrounding many aspects of mainstream science and, and thus help them to conserve their faith in their Puranic heritage.

In a similar vein to Apollo debunkers, Dr. Richard L. Thompson ( aka Sadaputa Dasa ) of the Bhaktivedanta Institute has done admirable yeoman service. In his book Vedic Cosmography, Dr. Thompson applies modern measurements and rational justification to the planetary orbits described in the Puranas. His video Mysterious Orbits presents the same with beautiful graphics. In Alien Identities, Dr. Thompson defines modern UFO phenomena, extra terrestrial races, and activities such as abductions, then relates them to Vedic accounts of the same, and even gives Vedic names for the various extra terrestrial races.

His book Forbidden Archaeology tears to shreads any supposed chronology of evolution from cavemen to modern man by introducing suppressed evidence, and Mechanistic and Non Mechanistic Science dispels the idea of consciousness originating from matter

However, there is probably not a one Indian nor Western devotee of Krishna who has ever seriously investigated the Hollow Planets Theory, or the way in which it impacts the Puranic belief system or the affect the ability of the followers of the Puranas and Vedic culture to present their classic literature. Therefore, it is hoped that this book will help to fill a void and provide a missing piece to the Puranic puzzle, insofar as a Hollow Planets understanding sheds new light on the Puranic descriptions of civilization on other planets.
