What Does RVimana Mean?
The “RV” part of that is probably obvious. It’s the bus. Technically, a Class A motor home. Upon first glance, most folks would most likely get “RV – I’m an A” ~ which actually is true as well. However, the real definition of the “Vimana” part…
Monier-Williams defines Vimana as “a car or a chariot of the gods, any mythical self-moving aerial car sometimes serving as a seat or throne, sometimes self-moving and carrying its occupant through the air; other descriptions make the Vimana more like a house or palace, and one kind is said to be seven stories high”.
It may denote any car or vehicle, especially a bier or a ship as well as a palace of an emperor, especially with seven stories. In some modern Indian languages like Hindi, vimana means “aircraft“.
The Sanskrit word vi-māna (विमान) literally means “measuring out, traversing” or “having been measured out”.
There you go. While we aren’t quite seven stories high (wouldn’t that be interesting at the first overpass), it is a wonderful view from the front seats. And there we go!
