Hinduism and organ donation
There are many references that support the concept of organ donation in Hindu scriptures. Daan is the original word in Sanskrit for donation meaning selfless giving. In the list of the ten Niyamas (virtuous acts) Daan comes third.
Of all the things that it is possible to donate, to donate your own body is infinitely more worthwhile.
In the joys of others lies our own.
Scientific and medical treatises (Charaka and Sushruta Samhita) form an important part of the Vedas. Sage Charaka deals with internal medicine while Sage Sushruta includes features of organ and limb transplants:
Organ donation is in keeping with Hindu beliefs as it can help to save the life of others.
I believe in organ donation. If my body can help someone else live a better quality of life after my soul has vacated it then it is good Seva.
I always carry my donor card with me. It says that my whole body can be used for organ donation and medical purposes after my death. I would like to encourage as many people as possible to do the same.
