It is sometimes known as the Brahma Astra (Astra means ‘weapon’). As described in a number of the Hindu Puranas ( Mythology ), it was considered the deadliest weapon. It was said that when the Brahmastra was discharged, there was neither a counter attack nor a defense that could stop it, exce
Since Brahma is considered the Creator in Sanatana Dharma ( Meaning Universal Religion in Hinduism ), it is believed by Hindus that Brahmastra was created by him for the purpose of upholding Dharma ( Righteousness )and Satya ( Truth ), to be used by anyone who wished to destroy an enemy, who was unrighteous and untruthful. The target, when hit by Brahmastra, would be utterly destroyed.
The weapon was also believed to cause severe environmental damage. The land where the weapon was used became barren and all life in and around that area ceased to exist, as both women and men became infertile. There was also a severe decrease in rainfall with the land developing cracks, like in a drought.
Goodness gracious, I wonder if this Brahmasthra was what we call Nuclear Missile in today’s scientific term.!!!…..And this Brahmadanda, is it what we call Anti Ballistic Missile Today?
Does all this mean, ancient Hindus had all these knowledge?
