The __________, which translates to “Snake Missile” as it assumes the form of a snake, has the characteristically unerring aim of an attacking serpent, and proves deadly upon impact.





The __________ is energized by the powers of Lord Vishnu, “Destroyer of Worlds”, and fired millions of deadly missiles simultaneously—the intensity of the shower increased with increase in resistance.





The __________ is considered the battle-ending weapon, with no counterattack or defense that could stop it—neutralized only by the Brahma-Anda-Astra “Cosmic Missile”—and used only on one very specific target, completely annihilating it, for it never missed its mark, characteristic of a modern nuclear weapon.





The __________ emitted a massive cloud of toxic gases that engulfed an entire army and used total physical and mental incapacitation to kill millions of warriors.





The __________ is energized by the combined powers of Lord Shiva and Goddess Kali, discharged by the mind, eyes, mantras, or a bow, capable of destroying all creation and vanquishing all beings, but the mantra to obtain and discharge the Astra is blocked by Lord Shiva to prevent its misuse in the Kali Yuga.





The __________, a weapon 4 times more powerful than the Brahmastra, caused total destruction and rendered the soil so poisonous that even a blade of grass would not grow in 12 years, and where no rain fell in 12 years, characteristic of the modern day hydrogen/thermonuclear bomb.

    Radhika says:

    Few excerpts from the Mahabharata have made historians believe that nuclear weapons were used in the Mahabharata war: “An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose with its entire splendor.”

    At one site, Soviet scholars found a skeleton which had a radioactive level 50 times greater than normal, which seems to have been subjected to intense heat. And since there is no indication of a volcanic eruption at these sites, the intense heat can only be explained by an atomic blast or some other unknown weapon.

    Many researchers believe that the weapons used in Mahabharata were a combination of ancient earthly weapons and the highly powerful and advanced futuristic weapons, especially the various types of “Asthras” (missiles) and “Dhanush” (launchers).

    Poorva says:
