This question already has an answer here:

Does the religion say anything good/bad about organ donation ?

Is one not circumventing some sort of karmic rules by giving and receiving organs ? Say, if someone is blind, he is paying for his karma. May be getting an eye in donation means his punishment of blindness is over ? But eye transplants are a recent medical advancement. How did the punishment of blindness be over in the past ?

    Saying "that is his karma" when someone is suffering is not the correct definition of Karma. It's a terrible misinterpretation. We must always help what we can do. – Sarvabhouma Jul 4 '18 at 3:26
  • @Sarvabhouma but suffering is a result of karma - isn't it ? – happybuddha Jul 4 '18 at 23:15
  • Everything is Karma but what is the role of other human beings if looking at suffering and say Karma. we are here to help each other. – Sarvabhouma Jul 5 '18 at 3:06
  • @Sarvabhouma Don't the scriptures say humans are here to work out their karma ? – happybuddha Jul 5 '18 at 22:33
