Example text

As has been said earlier the physical body is nothing more than a combination of elements which will disintegrate on death. So there is no reason to believe that the spirit of the dead person will be upset if the body is used for scientific purposes. We can be rest assured that doctors and medical aides have a high sense of responsibility and professional ethics and that they would handle a corpse with the utmost respect due to it, so relatives need not be unduly worried about this. ere are some who even pledge to donate their bodies after their death to hospitals for medical students to study anatomy.

As a general rule it seems most practical to allow a lapse of about a day or two for funeral arrangements to be made and for friends or relatives to be informed. On the day of the funeral, the services of Buddhist monks would again be called on to perform the necessary religious service at the home and at the cemetery. It has been the practice amongst certain people to offer roasted pigs and chickens as symbolic offerings for the deceased. Such a practice is not encouraged in Buddhism because it involves the killing of innocent animals.

In many countries Buddhist monks are invited to the house of the deceased to perform religious rites prior to a funeral. e offering of flowers and the burning of a few joss-sticks and candles are normally accepted religious practices on such an occasion.  It is customary as a mark of respect, for friends and relatives to send wreaths of flowers for the funeral. ese should preferably be ordered so as to arrive at the house not earlier than the afternoon before the funeral, otherwise on the sad day itself they may be faded.
