Washing The Dead

Frozen Memories

Washing The Dead Washing The Dead

One of the most unusual places I have visited in this world was the Pashupatinath Crematorium in Kathmandu. Here I was able to see various stages of the Hindu last rites.

From: Ethnicity On Line; The body of a Hindu is prepared for their funeral by first shaving the head, washing the body and anointing it with herbs, spices and scents to dispel any spiritual corruption. The thumbs are tied together, as are the big toes, to keep the limbs in place. A cloth is tied around the head and under the chin to keep the mouth closed. The family will then dress the body in clean clothes and finally wrap it in a cloth shroud.
