The death of a loved one is perhaps the hardest thing to cope with. Sadness, guilt about our bad behaviour and remorse about unexpressed feelings are the most common feelings encountered when a loved one dies. The value of a person is often understood only after he or she dies. Until then, we tend to take him or her for granted. When the death knell sounds and we are left staring at the dead body of the person we lived with for so long, we are so devastated and clueless that relatives, friends and neighbours have to come and take charge of what to do with the dead body. However, decisions about disposal of the body, the funeral and other rites and rituals are not to be taken by public opinion or established norms, especially when you want to give your best to your loved one at least in his or her death. There is a spiritual science involved in each of the acts to be performed after death. If you want the departed soul to start the journey of the afterlife happily without remaining attached to earthly life, and without obstruction from negative spirits waiting to catch hold of the clueless soul, then you need to be aware of what to do and what not to do. Hence it is important to understand this subject beforehand, so that when calamity strikes, you are well prepared. Presented here is a collection of articles that aims to educate you on the subject.
