Offerings with Bodhisattva's Pity--A Topical Subject of "Organ Donation" According to "Offering Inner Properties" of Huayanjing
Offering one’s organs or even one’s life for other beings are often seen in early Buddhist scriptures, but generalize those deeds and give them a specific item as “offering inner properties” (內施) was affirmed by Huayanjing (華嚴經). If one can offerings his inner properties for others, besides benefiting other, it could alsocure his own stingy heart. But if one has an “unclean thought” when he offerings inner properties, contrarily, it will become an “unclean offering”, and increases his evil karmas. Today, owing to our medical science still couldn’t invent artificial organs instead of living human organs, those organ donors who hoping to avoid the possibility of “unclean offering” and be carried to there evil directions, they must practicing themselves have correct understanding about the sufferings of body and soul, when they are offering their organs at the point of death. Besides, steadying the mind of organ donors for bodhi, leading themselves with prajna wisdom, it will be the non-dua1ity way for bodhisattvas proceeding forward to their Buddhahoods.
