Who were the Gods? Were they super-humans who came to Earth from somewhere outside our solar system? Were these aliens considered Gods by early Man because they arrived in illuminated spacecraft and possessed advanced knowledge? Were these 'Gods? responsible for establishing religion on Earth? What do civilizations such as the Inca, Maya, Sumer and Indian, tell us the existence of Gods? Are the Seven Worlds (lokas), the territory of the Gods? And what happened to them? Where did they vanish to? Empire of the Gods delves with defining insight into the proofs that exist in scientific research, the writings of eminent thinkers, as well as India?s ancient scriptures and epics such as Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavat-Gita, Ramayana, Mahabharata, Samarangana Sutradhar, Bruhad Aeronautics, Kathaasaritsagar about the presence, activities and characters of the Gods. It also looks at how to attain the bliss promised by the Gods, the existence of an afterlife and comprehensive ways of meditation free from ritual. This deeply researched and riveting narrative casts the clear light of logical reason on areas and concepts we have perhaps only imagined or thought of as science fiction.
