New Series 163: It is most trying in these final hours and days of the Cyclic Changing. The physical body is stressed and the mind is weary, and yet, the soul knows what is coming, for this is why you came. Even though it seems the whole world is against you and everyone has fallen ill, and the criminals have made their push to take of thy possessions, and your very lives, know that God has not forsaken His children.

5/05/2013 from HATONN/jonur (ns163)

Hatonn present in Radiance and LIGHT.  It is most trying in these final hours and days of the Cyclic Changing.  The physical body is stressed and the mind is weary, and yet, the soul knows what is coming, for this is why you came.  Even though it seems the whole world is against you and everyone has fallen ill, and the criminals have made their push to take of thy possessions, and your very lives, know that God has not forsaken His children.

The negative impacts upon thy lives and the BEING itself seem to be all-encompassing and total in its assault.  That is when it should be remembered that God is with you the most.  You are never left during times of great difficulty and confusion.  This scribe may feel it is just “him” against the world, but ALL of you can relate to what is happening in your world today.

  So, for various reasons, the door of Vault B remains closed to this day.

It is also said that this chamber could lead to the nearby Indian Ocean through a tunnel.  This tunnel may have some kind of security or self-destruction mechanism that will flood the underground chambers, destroy the whole temple and kill everybody inside if the Vault B door is opened by man-made technology.


According to the trustees of the Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple, an underground harbor is located at the very end of this tunnel.  This harbor is said to house a mysterious and very ancient flying machine, a so-called Saubha Vimana.

Sanskrit texts are filled with references to gods who fought battles in the sky using Vimanas equipped with weapons as deadly as any we can deploy in these more enlightened times.  For example, there is a passage in the Ramayana which reads:

“The Puspaka car, that resembles the Sun and belongs to my brother, was brought by the powerful Ravan; that aerial and excellent car going everywhere at will… resembling a bright cloud in the sky…”

In the Mahabharata, an ancient Indian poem of enormous length, we learn that an individual named Asura Maya had a Vimana measuring 12 cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels.
The poem is a veritable gold mine of information relating to conflicts between gods who settled their differences apparently using weapons as lethal as the ones we are capable of deploying.  Apart from “blazing missiles”, the poem records the use of other deadly weapons.  “Indra’s Dart” operated via a circular “reflector”.  When switched on, it produced a “shaft of light” which, when focused on any target, immediately “consumed it with its power”.

In one particular exchange, the hero Krishna is pursuing his enemy, Salva, in the sky, when Salva’s Vimana, the Saubha, is made invisible in some way.  Undeterred, Krishna immediately fires off a special weapon:  “I quickly laid on an arrow, which killed by seeking out sound.”

Perhaps the most disturbing and challenging information in the ancient texts about these allegedly mythical Vimanas is that there are some matter-of-fact records describing how to build one.  In their way, the instructions are quite precise.  In the Sanskrit Samarangana Sutradhara, it is written:

“Strong and durable must the body of the Vimana be made, like a great flying bird of light material.  Inside one must put the mercury engine with its iron heating apparatus underneath.  By means of the power latent in the mercury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion, a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in the sky.  The movements of the Vimana are such that it can vertically ascend, vertically descend, and move slanting forwards and backwards.  With the help of the machines, human beings can fly in the air and heavenly beings can come down to Earth.”

According to Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (Krsna, 1970), the ancient Indians had this to reveal about the Saubha Vimana:

“The airplane occupied by Salva was very mysterious.  It was so extraordinary that sometimes many airplanes would appear to be in the sky, and sometimes there were apparently none.  Sometimes resting on the peak of a hill and sometimes floating on the water.  The wonderful airplane flew in the sky like a whirling firebrand—it was not steady even for a moment.”

Perhaps such a Saubha Vimana is waiting to be discovered in the underground world of Trivandrum in Kerala, South India.

  We asked him about the contention that AUTEC was the navy’s equivalent to Area 51, operated by the US Air Force.  He didn’t smile or frown.  His expression gave away nothing at all.  He merely shook his head.

“AUTEC conducts underwater testing and research,” he said.  It’s about submarines and torpedoes—underwater vessels, not UFOs.”

Andros is the largest and least explored among the 26 inhabited islands in the Bahamas.  It rests on the western edge of a deep-water basin known as the Tongue of the Ocean, with depths greater than 6,000 feet.  The testing and research that Commander Richard mentioned are related to preparations for undersea warfare by testing submarines and other under water craft.

But might the former base commander have actually provided a cryptic answer?  Granted, AUTEC might not be interested in UFOs, but it certainly would take an interest in USOs, or unidentified submerged objects.

Such objects, in fact, have been reported in those deep waters off Andros.  Curt Rowlett was working on a ship as a civil engineer for AUTEC in 1985 when one such object was picked up on radar.  Twelve years earlier, another AUTEC [Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center—on Andros Island] employee, Dave Malcolm, then a weapons technician at the base, saw a massive structure rising rapidly, directly behind his torpedo retriever boat.  Dave had never seen anything like it and had no idea what it was.  He thought at the time that it might be a secret experimental craft, but over the years his doubts have grown.  Secret craft, he noted, usually become public knowledge after a time, but in all these years he has not seen or heard of any underwater craft similar to what he witnessed that day.


While AUTEC has been compared to Area 51, the secret base is closely linked with the Bermuda Triangle saga.

One of the most notable stories from the infamous triangle involves a South Florida pilot who flew out of Andros Island and into the heart of the Bermuda Triangle phenomenon.  Unlike many pilots and crews of ships, Bruce Gernon survived his encounter and has been talking about it ever since.  He has appeared on numerous documentaries on the Bermuda Triangle—so many that he is sometimes recognized by strangers.  A few months after our trip to Andros for the History Channel, Gernon was eating dinner at the bar in a sports restaurant when he noticed a man on the opposite side of the horseshoe staring at him.  The man whispered something to the bartender, who then came over to Gernon and asked if he was the pilot who had had the strange Bermuda Triangle experience.  When Gernon said he was, the bartender told him the gentleman said he worked at AUTEC and would like to talk to him.

There happened to be a spare seat next to the man during the crowded dinner hour, so Gernon joined the stranger.  The man, who was wearing a T-shirt with an AUTEC logo emblazoned on it, told Gernon that he was still employed at the secret navy base and wasn’t going to tell him his name.  But for the sake of convenience, let’s call him Earl.  He said he’d had two unusual experiences during his time working as a civilian employee, but was only willing to tell Gernon about one of them.

“So what is it?”  Gernon asked.  Earl explained that he was working as an engineer on a submarine near the southern end of the Tongue of the Ocean when the electronic equipment suddenly acted as if it were possessed.  It was as if they had entered a space where the known laws of physics had collapsed.  Several seconds passed, and then everything returned to normal.  Everything except that they were now near the northern end of the Tongue of the Ocean, about 100 miles from where they had been moments earlier.  No one could explain what had happened.

Gernon was fascinated and could only imagine what the second story—the one that Earl wouldn’t talk about—must involve.  Even though the incident took place deep below the surface, Gernon was fascinated by the similarity to his own encounter in the Bermuda Triangle on a flight that began on Andros Island.  Gernon, like Earl, experienced an apparent leap in space and time after his electronic equipment malfunctioned.


Gernon’s story began on the morning of 4 December 1970.  It was rainy on Andros, so 23-year-old Gernon, his father and Chuck LayFayette, a business associate, waited until 3:00 pm for the weather to clear.  Gernon took the controls of their new Bonanza A36 and lifted off from Andros Town Airport.  The Bonanza was a stable, smooth-flying aircraft, and Gernon was confident of his abilities.  They had made similar flights numerous times in search of an island where they hoped to build a resort, and had decided that Andros, with its American military connection, would be ideal.

They carved a turn and climbed to 1,000 feet, but couldn’t go any higher because of the cloud ceiling at 1,500 feet.  They turned in to the Bimini radio beacon on their automatic direction finder and headed toward it.  They were cruising at 180 miles an hour and had been airborne for 10 minutes when the light rain ended and the sky cleared.  They had reached the northwestern end of Andros and were flying over the ocean shallows of the Great Bahamas Bank.  Visibility had improved from about three miles to 10 miles and the weather appeared calm.

As they started to gain altitude, Germon noticed a smooth, white, saucer-shaped cloud directly in front of them, about a mile away.  He later would refer to it as a lenticular cloud.  However, lenticular clouds typically are seen above mountains or at altitudes of 20,000 to 40,000 feet.  They are also stationary.  This cloud looked to be about a mile wide and a thousand feet thick, with the top of it reaching 1,500 feet.  It would soon shape-shift into a billowing speedster.

Gernon flew over the cloud and filed a flight plan with the Miami Flight Service.  They would fly to Bimini, then directly to West Palm Beach.  Miami Radio, the call sigh for the flight service, reported clear conditions between Andros and the Florida coast, with a few scattered, isolated thunderstorms of moderate intensity in South Florida.  Winds were light and variable.

After picking up the weather report, Bruce casually looked back at the cloud and was startled by what he saw.  No longer saucer-shaped, it had transmuted into a huge, cumulus-shaped cloud that was moving rapidly.  They were 10 miles offshore, climbing at a thousand feet per minute, and the cloud seemed to be building up beneath them, rising at the same rate as they were ascending.

After several minutes, they were almost a mile high and the cloud was still rising with them. 

 Then, unexpectedly, the cloud engulfed the plane.  They felt an updraft, and visibility was abruptly reduced to less than 100 feet.  Gernon increased the speed and they finally broke free of the cloud.  They continued their ascent, but the mysterious cloud kept pacing them.

“I couldn’t get 10 yards above the cloud.  Within 30 seconds, it closed around us again,” Gernon recalled.  “Chuck was getting nervous.  He had never come this close to a cloud in a small plane.  I assured him that we would break free of it at any moment and leave it behind.”
Suddenly, another updraft provided a burst of acceleration that lifted them above the cloud.  But once again the cloud caught up to them.  The same thing happened several more times.  Worried, they considered turning back to Andros.  That’s when they broke free at 11,500 feet.  Gernon leveled the Bonanza and accelerated to 195 miles per hour as they moved through clear sky.  Later, he figured that the cloud must have been travelling at more than 105 miles an hour, their climbing speed.
