Cremation Ceremony

Cremation Ceremony

Cremation Ceremony

There were quite a few cremations in progress at Pashupatinath Temple enabling me to see them in various stages of the ritual. The two men, who may be sons of the deceased or they may be priests, walked around the pyre a few times prior to firing up the wood. Traditionally, it is the sons responsibility to ignite the pyre. Another common ritual is for sons to shave their heads which is why I am not sure if these are sons or priests. One thing for sure, the two men are Brahmins. The sacred white thread worn across their torso is the clue that they are indeed Brahmins.
