Let’s be spiritual and not follow a religion!


(My first post in prose J kindly read!)

An appeal:
None of us is going to enter the gates of heaven, howsoever fervently we might have washed our sins away, nor is our body going to get up from the dust on a particular day, howsoever zealously we may wait! And we are certainly not going to inherit the kingdom of God, in whatsoever way!

We have indulged in pleasures of the flesh throughout our lives, let’s please our body one last time by giving it a chance to be alive for some more years and not give it away to scorching flames or lay it in the dark and cold.*

There are lacs of fellow human beings suffering from terminal diseases waiting for untimely death, or a sagacious organ donor, in hundreds of hospitals. They are in a dire need of an organ to live further on. Just a few ounces out of our 68kgs mass weigh too little in comparison to a whole life it can save.

Our priceless organs, heart, lungs, liver, pancreas, kidneys, eyes, heart valves, skin, bones, bone marrow, connective tissues, middle ear and blood vessels, of which we are the sole owners, will be burnt away or buried mindlessly if we do not act now in our senses and able bodies.

“Take me from darkness to light. Take me from false to Truth. Take me from death to immortality”.

Let’s pledge our body or organs for donation after death to save some precious lives from being lost before their time.

Don’t let any so called religious myths or sentimental pressures hinder your way once you make up your mind. Persuading your family will not be difficult when you remember how many times you cajoled them into something you wished them to do J

I have done it!



Organ Retrieval Banking Organization of All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, is the place where you can perform this noble and very religious ritual, and be content about it!
 _________________________________________________________
*O.K., if your mindset doesn't allow you to forget  your body, you can have the last rites performed on it, by not pledging the whole, although the skin, bones and bone marrow are of vital importance too, which we shall leave behind!

  2. Great post, Amit! I think the most humane thing that we can do is to leave our bodies to medicine and science. Congratulate you and all others who have done so. We have three in our family, two still living.

  4. Agreed. I signed up for organ donation at least 20 years ago and have recently renewed my pledge in my new country, Sweden.

  14. A very noble gesture indeed.But you know what stops people?I read sometime back that so many donated eyes were not preserved properly & went to waste.The abysmal inefficiency of our countrymen is a deterrent.After my death my family will be exposed to this extra hassle when they are immersed in grief,& what if it all goes to waste?

  24. I started reading this post with full intention to disagree, as I don't believe humans can be spiritual without having a religion as a core belief. That's how we are wired.
    But your post was wonderful, and talked about something entirely different from what I thought it would. I think that compassion is what makes a human humane, and I'm happy that you have pledged to donate. I have pledged my eyes too, but I haven't yet mustered up the courage to pledge all my organs because of a little narcissism that I don't want to look emptied out AFTER my death. Such vanity!
    Your post restarts a dialogue in my head. Thanks.

  25. That's a truly thoughtful gesture, amit. You inspire us to follow...:) Thank you.

  26. Great job Amit. I've registered too, here. :) Love that second para of yours; makes a lot of sense.

  27. When one can feel disappointed that 'None of us is going to enter the gates of heaven.'

    The message is loud and clear and I am sure many more will pledge!

  38. A man dies with his physical death but he continues to live when his organ is implanted in another still alive. This act of magnanimity is divine and should serve as an example for all of us to emulate.

  45. Your appeal to pledge one's body for the benefit of someone unknown is very noble. However, there is a lot of misconception or unwanted fears about donating organs after death. Besides, there is very little scientific information or education available to people.

    However, where is the connection with religion, heaven and sin and it would have been best if such a reference was avoided.
