From page 35:

"... By means of the 'power latent in the mercury' which sets the driving 'whirlwind' in motion, a man sitting inside travel a great distance in a most marvelous manner.

Similarly by using the prescribed process one can build a vimana as large as the temple of the God-in-motion. Four strong mercury containers must be built into the interior structure. When these have been heated by controlled fire from iron containers, the vimana develops thunder-power through the mercury. And at once it becomes a pearl in the sky."
