Hindu funerals

 

Simplicity’s funeral directors know that a funeral service is sacred in Hinduism, because it represents the completion of a stage in a life. Although it is a sad occasion, the funeral is looked at as a celebration and a remembrance of the deceased.

Though cremation is preferred, as the burning of a dead body signifies the release of the spirit and the flames represent the creator, Brahma, burial is sometimes allowable. We can also arrange for an open casket and viewings.
