1061. Science and Scriptures....!

Maharshi Vyasadeva has recoeded many astonishing  incidences which the modern scientists are  scientifically attempting them now. Hence when the whole world express their wonder about those researches we Indians are aware of the technologies which are already mentioned in our puranas.

Though it is a very insignificant effort I trying to compile all those scientific approach which I came through while studying our ancient literatures. 

Vyasadeva in his 18 Puranas and Mahabharatha has mentioned many unique ways of births. Let us look at it one by one.

In the lineage of Dhruva there was a king named Vena. He died without progeny and the sages churn his dead body at the thigh a dwarf was cloned. He was named Nishada and he llate on be the ancestor of Nala and Ekalvavya. And from his right hand come King Prithu from whom this earth came to be known as “Prithvi”. This is no way inferior to the modern day Genetic Engineering.  

Vyasadeva himself was born in a distinctive way. His father Parasara while crossing the river Ganga observes the planetary pattern indicating a very rare celestial occurrence which would happen once in many millions of years. He knew that a child conceived at that exact moment would be destined to bring good to humanity. He explained the significance of the moment to the women who was rowing the boat and requested her to be the field for him to sow the seed of progeny and to participate in the accomplishment of a cosmic mission. Sage Parasara planned “Sadyo-Garbha” which is similar to modern day Extra-Uterine conception and thus the great Vyasadeva was born.

Vyasadeva helped Gandhari the mother of Kauravas who had their gestation outside their mother’s womb. The entire 100 embryo were stored in jars of ghee, and it does sound like Test Tube babies. Further the birth of the six sons of Kunti and Madri were by In-Vitro Fertilisation wherein the Viryanu (sperm) came from donors; Surya, Yama, Vayu, Indra, Ashwini Brothers.
Birth of Balarama throws light on surrogation by the foetus transfer. The embryo of Devaki and Vasudeva is transferred to the womb of Vasudeva’s another wife Rohini. The embryo was extracted out of Devaki hence Balarama is called Sankarshana also.

If these are different kinds of births there are few more scientific events like sex change of Shikhandi to avenge the death of Bhishma. Hormonal changes that happened in Arjuna for him to become Brihannala, the transgender so that he can spend the incognito period in the royal harem of Virata, the King of Matsya Desha.

Back to future in a Time Machine in the story of the King Ravatha, who along with his daughter Revathi travels to a different galaxies and meets Brahma in Brahmaloka. He is shocked to learn that many ages have passed when he returns back to his Kingdom. He later becomes the father-in-law to Balarama. 

The knowledge of Prosthesis from fitting the artificial limb to Rani Vishpala who lost her leg in the battle.  
Abhimanyu learning about Chakravyuha while still in the womb of his mother Subhadra. Ashwattama had a gem on the forehead which might be like the modern silicon chip which updated him of the new techniques of warfare.   

Srimad Bhagavatham narrates how the embryo develops. It states that after 5 days a “Budbuda” appears, embryology calls this as ‘Bubble stage’ on 10th day it is “Karkandhu” which is a Zygote. 15th day an egg is formed embryology accepts it by describing that stage as having oval shape. The head of the fetus is formed at the end of the first month and soon nostrils develop there appears Prana and vocal chords also develop. Foetal heart begins working in the second month of pregnancy. I was shocked to learn that, because I had studied in the modern books that the foetal heart begins in the fifth month of pregnancy. First the penis is developed, then the anus. Then ears develop, in them the hearing sense appeared and the directions are born by the ears. Which the modern science first ridiculed and now they accept the chronology.
