Bhaja Govindam -verse 6 part 3

              The  seeker has to  contemplate  on the emptiness  of  life , give  up his  attachments  to  his  body  and  stop  wasting  his  life  in  fulfilling  his  bodily  and  worldly  pleasures. . At  the  same time , he  should  remember the  fact  that  it  is  only  through  the  physical  body he  can  attain  the  four  purusharthas . So  one  has  to  take  care  of  one's  body  by proper  diet , exercise  ,  clothing  and  shelter ,so  that  by  the  grace  of  the  Lord ,he  develops  a  desire  to  know  his  true  nature  and  approaches  a  guru , gains  knowledge  and  becomes  free. . With  this  right  knowledge ,he  should  live  in this  body with  detachment towards  his  body  and  the  world . The   body and the  world   indeed  are  necessary  in order to  turn  his  mind inwards  and  contemplate  on the  highest  Truth .

        In  modern  times, the  concept  of  donating  one's  eyes  and  other  organs  after  death  is  spreading  thereby  helping  millions  of  lives  ,who  may  be in need  of  dead people's  organs.  This  idea  is  fast  catching up . So one  should  express   to  his  family members  his  desire  to  have  his  organs  donated  after his  death. Some  desire  even  to donate  the  body  for  medical  and  research  purposes. , after  they are  dead and  gone . It  then  becomes  the  responsibility of the  family  members    to  carry  out  their  last  wish.
