But is it Bad Karma? - 8nov22

When asked “Is donating one’s body to science bad karma?” I was tempted to explain that fifty-percent of the eight-fold path pertains to loving-kindness, and how using one’s body to prevent others’ suffering is a very good thing. But that is like being so preoccupied with TIE fighters that one forgets about the Death Star’s thermal exhaust port.

Buddha’s references to karma were less punitive than they were insightful explorations of interdependence and the body-mind complex. If our first thought of evaluation is “will this benefit or harm me?” then we remain slaves of fear whose training in love is incomplete.
