What is cloning?

an organism or cell, or group of organisms or cells, produced asexually from one ancestor or stock, to which they are genetically identical.

 

That is, you create a replica of a human being without sexual intercourse. In my 2014 articles about Ten Medical Mysteries in Mahabharata, I have listed the ancient techniques of Test Tube babies, cloning etc. (see the link below for the full article).

Apart from the cloning references in the Mahabharata we have more references in Devi Bhagavata, Vishnu Purana and Manu Smriti:-

 

Cloning through Blood

Rakta Bhija (blood Seed)’s story is in Devi Mahaatmya. The demon Rakta Bheeja has a strange power. No one can kill him because when his blood is shed, another demon will emerge from each  drop of his blood. He fought with the Goddess Chaamunda. Each drop of his blood as it fell on the ground produced a new Asura (demon). But Chamundaa Devi found a new technique to stop it. She drank his blood in full and devoured his flesh. No more demons came out.

 

This story is a clear proof of blood cloning. If we place all stories of cloning together found in Hindu literature and study them we will know they are not fancy stories or science fiction.

 

Churning the Body of MEN to produce children!

Mahabharata gives innumerable stories of strange births, particularly men giving birth to babies. Till cloning techniques were reported in news papers, people couldn’t understand such stories and they were either baffled or they ridiculed such stories.

 

Here are two more from two different sources:

 

A legend in Vishnu Purana says that King Nimi requested Vaishtha to perform a fire sacrifice which would last for 1000 years. The sage pleaded a prior engagement to Indra for five hundred years, but offered to come at the end of that period. The king made no remark and remained silent and so Vaishistha rushed to the Royal court of Nimi as soon as he finished 500 year Yaga (fire sacrifice). He took silence as Yes. In the meantime, Nimi had finished the Yaga with the help of another sage called Gautama.

 

Enraged by this Vaisishtha cursed Nimi to become ‘Body less’ (Vi+Deha). This curse was given to him while Nimi was sleeping. When he woke up he became angry saying that a sleeping person cannot be cussed according to Hindu law and he cursed Vasistha back. Vaisistha perished as per the curse and came back in another body. But in Nimi’s case he died because of the curse. And then the sages CHURNED HIS BODY AND PRODUCED A SON CALLED MITHI. The city of Mithila, Sita’s birth place got the name from this legendary King Mithi.

 

Here churning the body is a technical term for cloning.

This is proved in another story

Story of Vena

Vena, son of Anga and a descendant of Manu Swambhuva issued a proclamation regarding Fire Sacrifices:

“Men must not sacrifice or give gifts or present oblations. Who else but myself is the enjoyer of sacrifices? I am forever the Lord of the Offerings”.

The sages remonstrated him respectfully, but in vain. They admonished him in stronger terms; but when nothing worked, they slew him with blades of consecrated grass. After his death the sages beheld clouds of dust and inquiry  found that they arose from the bands of men who had taken to plundering because the country was left without a king.  A King less (A+rajaka)country is severely criticised in the Hindu epics and mythologies.

 

As Vena was childless, the sages after consultation, RUBBED the thigh ( in Hari Vamsa, they rubbed his right arm) of the dead king to produce a son. From it there came forth a man like, a charred log, with flat face and extremely short. The sages told him to sit down (Nishida). He did so and thus became a Nishida, from whom sprang the Nishaadas dwelling in the Vindhya mountains., distinguished by their wicked deeds.

(Nishada= hunters, Forest dwsellers)

(This shows that their first experiment of CLONING went wrong and wicked people were produced ; something like Jurassic Park film)

The sages then RUBBED the right arm of the dead body of Vena and from it sprang the majestic Prithu, resplendent in body, glowing like the manifested Agni/ Fire God. The story of Vena is found in Mahabharata, Manu Smrti commentary, Padma Pura and Hari Vamsa.

Here RUBBING stands for CLONING.

Prithu gave the name Prithvi to earth.

 

The Puranas faithfully reported that the cloning went wrong in the first experiment. Puranas never lie.

 

The ancient sages used technical jargon like RUBBING or CHURNING the dead body for CLONING.

 

As the science develops new techniques or make new inventions we understand our mythology better.
