Not to be morbid but I was wondering how people feel about whole body donation after death. I know the Tibetan Buddhists would have a problem because they believe there is a lingering life force in the body for a while. I think our journey to the pureland would be pretty fast. If I can help medical science in some small way or aleve suffering for animals in research I would like to do that.
While I am certainly no expert as to the environmental factors and consequences that come with death and dying I would certainly offer from my own personal perspective that I don’t see an issue with it. If you body is in the condition to be donated I would think it would be very much in the spirit of a Bodhisssatva to allow scientists and researchers to use it for their needs and to later dispose of the remains in a green (or at least less environmentally harmful) manner.
