Abstract Euthanasia, also known as mercy killing, involves the act of ending a person's life to alleviate unbearable pain or suffering, or to facilitate a painless death in situations where life has lost its meaning and has become unpleasant. While, Buddhism is about being kind, paying attention, and stopping suffering, so it has a different view that might affect people and communities dealing with end-of-life decisions. Focusing on compassionate choices, the study examines how Buddhist principles influence perceptions and decisions regarding end-of-life care. Investigating the conflicts between Buddhist teachings, which emphasize compassion and the easing of distress, and the evolving legal landscape of euthanasia in India. In this paper we shed light on the nuanced ethical considerations and we suggest that people should work together and think carefully to find a good balance between what Buddhism teaches and the laws about euthanasia in India. This means including kindness and being aware of others in legal discussions and making sure everyone understands each other's viewpoints. The goal of this paper is to create a fair way that respects each person's rights while dealing with the deep ethical questions connected to Buddhism.
