When does medical treatment interfere with nature?

by Chaitanya Charan dasJuly 27, 2013

From Kalanidhi Pr

Discussing organ donation, You mentioned that devotees do not usually like to interfere in the course of nature. The citing of exceptional example of Shyam Sundar Prabhu to prove the rule was brilliant.

While I intuitively agree with the healthiness of this sentiment, I am curious, how far can  I stretch it in practical terms? Sometihing unnatural yesterday has become natural today. Like  bypass or even assisted breathing.

One thought is, do unto others that you would like others do unto you. If I would seek blood donation in need, I may donate to others too! Is this thinking OK?

Another question is, when i get sick, how much treatment is appropriate? Whether Ayurved is more desirable than other systems. Is going under surgery is less natural than medication? . How much money should I put away for unforeseen economic or health problems? Going by the trends of sophistication in expensive medicine, sky would be the limit.

I sometimes feel a sudden death is more desirable than a prolonged one, when you agonise over various , often expensive options. How does one deal with self or family in the latter type events?

    where exactly does the conditioned soul go after death? to heaven or hell or directly takes the body of animal or demigod or human being? my another query is if one has suffered his part of karma in heaven or hell . then why that karma of previous life act in this life also. my point is that it is better to get a fine when you actually break the signal then to get fine years after when you have totally forgotten about it. (i have asked this question based on what i heard from people about transmigration)please also give reference to a book that explains this transmigration process in detail
