The Western society hides death under a blanket of euphemisms; in #varanasi death and life coexist in the same #holyriver and in adjacent #ghats. And somehow death has become an unlikely tourist attraction. But in the end the unknown has always fascinated - and scared - people so, not surprisingly, #theganga (#theganges) is always full of boats... 🇮🇳 #funeralrites #funerarypyre #visitindia #india #cremation

Antyesti, which means “last sacrifice”, refers to funeral rites in Hinduism and so far it is one of the most curious thing I’ve ever witnessed.
This is a hindu funeral where the dead body is washed, displayed with flowers, wrapped in red or withe cloth (according to gender) and then carried to the cremation ground near the river.
Then the bereaved will circle their loved one in prayer and observe the cremation. 🙏🏻

The Last Rites - Jakub Schikaneder - 1891

<swipe left> The Akans believe there is life after death, meaning there is another world that people go to settle when they die. Regardless of ones religious beliefs, there's the believe that death is a journey to another world (usually believed to be in a spiritual realm). For example, Christianity accommodates this belief that human beings are on a journey, and this world is just a transit point. So at a point all humans will embark on this journey to the final destination (Heaven & Hell). Funeral rites are a way of sending off the deceased to the afterworld. It is believed that this journey could be a long one, and so during the funeral rites gifts "akwan kogya ade3" (send away gift) are given to the deceased to help them on the journey. The gift may include handkerchiefs, matches, water, Fabrics, sweets, money + whatever the family chooses to add. It could be anything that was a favorite of the deceased. People from not too distant families may also include gifts, and ask the deceased to give it to a relative who had died earlier. Some people leave messages with the deceased to deliver to their ancestors. If the deceased has relatives who stay abroad, they come with things from where they live (a reason why there are American flag Handkerchiefs among the gifts). .

Among the Akans, one of the very first rituals that is done when a family member dies is to paint their family house. The immediate understanding of this ritual is to make the house look clean and welcoming, but I'm told there is an underlying narrative behind this ritual. Will find out and share! .

One of the important parts of Asante funeral rites is the costume for the mourning/celebration. The family of the deceased decides on the specific attire/cloth for the funeral. And this decision is usually made based on the gender, age, social status, and/or circumstances that lead the the death. Asantes are sometimes particular about the costume for a funeral because they may want it to be remembered as a special celebration by a particular family or clan. According to Ghanaian musicologist Professor Kwabena Nketiah in one of his writings on the expensive showcasing at Akan funerals in 1950 said "The celebration of funeral is regarded as duty and no pains are spared to make it a memorable event. 'Was it well attended?' (Ayie no nkrofuo bae?), 'Was it exciting?' (Ayie no soe?) Those are the questions that may be asked as a test of successful funeral." The beauty of an Asante funeral sometimes based on how well the funeral costume is worn to the grounds. It's creates a certain uniformity that shows each and everyone present shares in the celebration. And for outsiders, it is a respectable way of showing solidarity to the bereaved family. These clothes mostly carry distinctive messages in them, and the messages are mostly in the adinkra symbols and/or text. Some of the messages include "Odupon bi atu ahwi" (a great tree has fallen), "s3 asa" (it is finished), "Owuo sei fie" (death destroys homes), "Obi nim nea owu wo a, anka onsi ho ara da" (if one knew where death resides one would never stop there). Today at Obaapanin Comfort Amoah's funeral the family decided to use a cloth that transmitted a message that Odupon bi atu ahwi (a great tree has fallen). 📷 & Text: Nana Osei - 2017

Altar is dressed, for a somber occasion. Grieving for my cats who have parted over the years. I don't feel it's rightfully going to be a celebration of the dead thing because they all passed tragically. :( so, this was a long time coming. Going to ask forblessings fortheir future lives to be better.

The word “funeral” itself indicates a torch-lit procession, derived from the Latin “funeralis”, from fumis, a torch. Burials occurred at night so torches were essential. Long after Christians denounced night-time burial as a pagan practice, funeral candles were placed around the body from death to burial..#korucremation #honouringthecircleoflife #funeralcustoms #funeralrites #funeralcandle #ceremony #candles #candlelitceremony #sacredpassages #diydeathcare #diyceremony

Madagascar, Antsirabe. In the highlands outside Antsirabe, a family tomb has been opened. The dead bodies will be carried outside, rewrapped in fresh cloth and the family will honor their ancestors by dancing with them. The celebration of the ancestors are called Famadihana. “The custom is based upon a belief that the spirits of the dead finally join the world of the ancestors after the body's complete decomposition and appropriate ceremonies, which may take many years” - Wikipedia.
