Since a lot of scientific information, about Ayurveda and others was present in these scriptures, I thought we should start a school. That is when we first started the Ved Vignan Maha Vidhya Peeth here, to bring scholars together and give them modern education as well.
The scholars need to know English, and they need to know the ancient text as well, only then they can translate.
In history, we learn that the Wright brothers were the ones who first flew the airplane. Do you know that is not the truth? Have you all read about it, or seen the documentary?
Subraya Sharma, 30 years before the Wright Brothers, flew the first plane from Chowpatty beach in Bombay. The plane was financed by Navroji, a Parsi gentleman.
Subraya Sharma was from a village very close to the Ashram, a few kilometers from here.
He met a saint who was in meditation. The saint gave him some scriptures, and based on these scriptures, Sharma developed the whole airplane; and for 15 minutes he flew this airplane above Chowpatty Beach.
This was written in a newspaper in London. This was during the colonial rule, so the English put both of them in jail. Both, `Navroji and Subraya Sharma stayed in jail for 30 years.
