Agastya Samhita written in BC, describes method to make dry electric cell with volts and 23 mA and electroplating process, hydrogen balloons. Agastya Saṁhitā (literally: Agastya code) is a Sanskrit text written by indian Ṛṣi ( rishi) Agastya. It is one of the Pāñcarātra Texts.

No doubt using the immense power of the Indian batteries. Perhaps the Bagdad batteries had more power. Nah, the Baghdad batteries were but pale imitations of the mighty science of the true cradle of human civilization, India.
India is so much the true cradle of human civilization that they also had the first ancient astronauts! The Indians were so advanced that the space brothers visited there first, THEN brought lightbulbs to those benighted Egyptians. Is one Sanskrit text of the “Agastya Samhita” in existence, or the other source which mentions it? If so, are there any scholarly gaastya of the “Agastya Samhita” and is the ‘folklore’ paragraph actually in it.
In other words, can the folklore version be verified of is it just passed on hearsay? Something passing under that name exists, though I can’t read it: Other sources supply further vague background on the discoverer “Vaze” here Vajhe: While looking for scriptures related to science, agstya found a few pages of the Agastya Samhita with Damodar Tryambak Joshi of Ujjain. These belonged to agaetya Shaka Samvat Later on, after reading the said description in the pages of the Xamhita, Dr.
Sahastrabuddhe, the Head of the Sanskrit Department in Nagpur felt that the description was very similar to that of Daniel Cell.
So he gave it to P. Hole, the Professor of Engineering at Nagpur, with a request to investigate. Tomas agastua Are Not the First” p also links the battery description with everlasting lamps including one which “Rev. Mateer of the London Protestant Mission saw” at Trevandrum. Thank you for the material on Vaze; this helped me find a article that I think explains what really happened in this weird game of telephone. I’ve updated the post above with aagstya additional information.

He died in The Indian Historical Society, Poona, published ina book entitled BhUratiya Silpas’astra containing a series of lectures delivered by S’ri Vajhe under the auspices of his department and articles published in various journals. Thanks, Jason, for the clarification. Bottom line – it’s very interesting, but its probably not true. Different subject, but somewhat related: I recently read 2 or 3 ‘speculative science’ books on the “Nazi Bell’ which claim it used a Hg compound, possibly ‘Red Mercury’, to power the anti-gravity bell.
They all point out that vimanas were powered by mercury according to ancient texts. Perhaps this passage is also the source of that ‘amazing coincidence’. I have for you a translation of that text that claims there is a battery. In the original it does not say anything about that. According to two online translation sites, the passage the hoax is badly taken from actually says: The earthen clay jars can be used to hold the water element so long as it is lined with the coppery colored metal.
The metals may help hold in the water but also the pitch helps to hold it in. I suspect the pitch likely is actually the sealer, not the metal. Once the metals are used the jars can be sealed with the silvery metal. Naturally it being before they knew what copper and zinc were named in English, they would not use those words. The two untranslated words that are supposedly confused for water and air are actually not either. Once the seal of the jar can be done, then no water or air can get in or out.
This makes sense as they’re just saying it’s air tight to the best of their knowledge. This method can be used on at least jars before needing more materials, followed by the list of those materials.
Nothing is mentioned what so ever about electricity, light, batteries or energy. All this search took was ten minutes online and some friendly Hindi translation web site. The two mistranslated words were not the right words for water and oxygen, and they would not have known to call them such obscure names.
The Hindi translates to water and oxygen, but has nothing to do with batteries. A simple set of sealed jars, which could be used to store metals, spices, clay, or other items, nothing more. I have to admit the terms mitra-varuna, pranavuya, and udanavuya are much more elegant than anode-cathode, hydrogen, and oxygen. Also earthen battery jars can produce quite a jolt. I have to add that pranavuya and udanavayu combined make one hell of a fuel mix for rockets. Maybe not batteries but fuel for mythological virmanas?

The post was edited to include additional information. No evidence of the proposed original monument has been found, and other explanations are possible. The original Guardian story correctly identified these stones as the smaller inner horseshoe ring of stones at Stonehenge, though they did not emphasize this point. Of the text itself, little is known securely. Because portions of it are quoted in the Caturvarga-cintamaniitself composed around CE, we know it must predate that period, though suggested dates range wildly across the centuries but is generally suggested to be around the eleventh or twelfth century CE.
It is Sanskrit text in verse on rituals and liturgy, one which survives down to the present. But in fringe world it is something else: This is how fringe folk give the recipe, attributed to the ancient text:.
Tomas, in turn, says speaking of himself in the third person that he received information about the text directly from unnamed Indians: This text comes to us from The Minnesota Alumni Weekly vol. Kokatnur, a graduate of the University of Minnesota. His claims did appear in much abbreviated form in the Science News for September 9,however. Or, he threw them in to sound more authentic.
This is why no modern edition of the Agastya Samhita contains these references. Kokatnur also said that there was no chance that the manuscript he consulted could have been a forgery because the parchment looked old and was written in Sanskrit.
Detailed knowledge of science in India, he said, was only available to English speakers, who would be unlikely to create a hoax. But there is a bit more to the story: It appears that our friend Dr. Kokatnur wasn’t entirely honest about his sources.
Kokatnur but rather by an engineer in India named Rao Saheb K. Vaze, who received it secondhand himself: Joshi, a Yajurvedi Brahmin at Ujjain, through Mr. But the Vedic Magazine writer, Shri Parashuram Hari Thatte, claimed that the book was actually about how to build airplanes and hydrogen balloons! Kokatnur, and why he hid the source, if the reason be anything other than self-glorification.
Really now, that’s a real name? Well I guess Peewee was taken. Sir, you didn’t confirmed whether it is hoax or true.

After that, put a mercury-amalgamated zinc sheet on top of the sawdust to avoid polarization. The contact will produce an energy known by the twin name of Mitra-Varuna. Water will be split by this current into Pranavayu and Udanavayu. A chain of one hundred jars is said to give a very effective force. A well-cleaned copper plate should be placed in an earthen-ware vessel.

It should then be covered first by copper-sulphate and then by moist sawdust. Mercury amalgamated zinc plate should then be placed on the top of the sawdust. By their contact a light known by the twin-names Mitra-Varuna cathode-anode or electricity is produced.
