Those that human beings develop light their way and protect them after death
November 2nd 2016
It is always interesting to know about the funerary practices of old, about what remains of them today and to understand their significance. But to help a deceased person in the next world, those practices are not essential. Burying the person with objects, performing ceremonies, saying prayers for them certainly helps them, comforts their soul, but such rituals have limited power. What really helps human beings who leave this earth for the next world is the life they led while on earth, the virtues they practised. So if you have lived in harmony with the cosmic spirit, if you have respected the laws governing living nature, you need not worry about what will be done with your body after you die. Whatever happens to your body, a light will accompany you through the shadows of the afterlife.
