Buddhists believe that organ, eye and tissue donation is a matter of individual conscience and place high value on acts of compassion. Buddhism stresses the importance of letting the individual’s loved ones know his or her wishes regarding donation.  

The reverend Gyomay Masao, President and Founder of the Buddhist Temple of Chicago, says, “We honor those people who donate their bodies and organs to the advancement of medical science and to saving lives.” 

Give the gift of life and register to be an organ, eye and tissue donor.
