Sage Vedvyas initiates the process of stem cell technology:
Sage Dwapayan completes the process of stem cell technology Covering all pots with a piece of wet cloth, sage Dwapayan kept those covered pots in an enclosed hot chamber inside a man-made cave. This was done to intensify the process of fermentation and to keep the cells in lump of flesh alive and healthy. These 101 ghee pots were regularly incubated by trained morphic field resonator called as ‘parichaarakas’.
Parichaarakas ensured the formation of Morphogenetic fields due to which the main seed (one pot) resonates to make all other seeds in 100 pots to a similar form. (Morphogenetic fields guides the formation of new system by tuning it to some other system) Science in Hinduism - Stem cell technology Morphogenetic fields... very similar to chakravyuh.
In Vedic terminology, pots used for medicinal purpose were called as Chit-Chamasa. So, Chit-Chamasa is not like any other ordinary pot. It’s a special pot which means “Vessel of conscious life or energy”, named by joining the three words ‘Chit’ meaning ‘Conscious’, ‘Cham’ meaning ‘drink or eat’ and ‘asa’ meaning “To live”. Thus chit-chamasa can be defined in modern medical term as ‘vessel having living cell’ or ‘vessel containing fertilized egg’.
Finally 101 babies were born. These 101 pieces were kept in 101 ghee pots for 2 years after which 100 sons and a daughter were born. First duryodhan was born, and then over a course of one month, dushashan was followed by 98 other brothers and a sister Dushala. This is how the single fetus gave birth to 101 babies using stem cell technology.
Next Question that would arise is : Why 101 babies? Why not 100?
Because 1 added to any rounded figure is considered as an auspicious number in Hinduism. All Hindus spends an extra rupee in all religious and sacred ceremonies. Any priest or sage will request money in form of one rupee added to a rounded number i.e 51,101,201,501,1001 etc. Also, gandhari requested Vyas for one daughter after which vedvyas created an extra piece of flesh and subjected this lump of flesh to some genetic process that ensured the child is born as a female.
Was Stem cell technology forbidden and considered inauspicious?
This is the first instance of stem cell technology in written form. Note that birth of 100 kauravas was called as an ominous event by Vidura(Prime minister of kaurava kingdom), bhisma(Grandfather of kauravas) and other ministers of Kaurava kingdom.
As soon as the babies were taken off the pots, all beasts and animals in the jungle howls and cried. Many other ill omens were seen across the kingdom. Vidur requested king ‘dhritarashtra’ to take this omens seriously and kill his first baby (Duryodhan) that is going to bring harm to the whole Kaurava dynasty. Though killing of such babies were allowed under the saying that “For the good of the clan, village, country, kingdom or mother earth, an individual or a family can be sacrificed”, King Dhritrashtra and Gandhari declined to do so under the influence of emotional touch and sea of love flowing in their hearts.
