Is It Okay to Donate Your Organs _ Sadhguru – Transcript
Sadhguru: In Southern India there is a proverbial statement of how a coconut tree is useful when it’s alive and when it’s when it’s dead. Every part of the coconut tree is useful even after its life. Similarly a human being has the opportunity that when we are alive we can be absolutely useful and contributory to life around us and similarly we can be even after life is up. Organ donation is such a possibility that if we can make a difference for another life even after our life is over it’s a great possibility that human being should make use of. In our culture there is no glorification after death; within a few hours after a person’s demise his body is anyway burnt cremation is the way. So when that’s that is so if we can make use of the dead people’s organs to transform another life it’s definitely a wonderful thing but there is also another dimension to this. Every human organ is designed to last a lifetime. Why are we developing a culture that human organs are failing half way down? So this is a culture that we have to develop that individual people have to take responsibility to see that their bodies last for their lifetime. Bringing that culture also is important. You drink your liver to rot and then you want somebody else’s li liver. This could generate an unhealthy trend and there is also a market place which will evolve out of this and that could open up many dangerous possibilities. So organ donation is a fantastic thing on the individual basis but on the larger context we must be conscious and careful to see that this wonderful act of making a difference for another life does not develop into a huge market and bring all the other ugly things associated with it.
