Beloved Gurudev, what do you think about the donation of organs after death?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

It’s good. We can donate our organs. If our organs can come to someone else’s help, we should be happy.

Donate your eyes, or whichever organs are useful to others. Even if you are not here, your eyes continue to help someone to see.

Like when you give knowledge to somebody, that knowledge will continue even when you are not there. People will enjoy it for generations.

Though organs may not stay as long as knowledge or wisdom, they can for a short period of time help someone else. The purpose is that if we are useful in any way, while living or after death, we should just do it.
