How can they be sure it's Buddha's hair - has there been some DNA testing?

did he have siblings? otherwise, it would have taken some divine intervention, or broken (no touching) rules for him to become an ancestor of someone! 

 

 

BTW there's some more of his hair in Melbourne!!  (Bodhivana Monastry) 💂‍♀️
