Here are some main points which should be followed by the funeral directors if they are helping the Jain community in offering the last rites to the departed soul. The last journey organization helps Jain people in their offerings according to their beliefs.
What are the preparations before the funeral service?
Before starting the funeral services they clean the body and dress it up with a cloth. After that, they place it in a beer and cover it with a shroud. They lit fragrant incense on the right side of the head of the deceased person and they sit near the deceased body to mourn. This gathering is known as Prathna Sabha.
During the funeral, what should be done?
In the funeral procession, the deceased body is tied with the beer and the elder person of the family helps in taking the body to the crematorium or burial place.
After the funeral, what do they do according to the Jain beliefs and faiths?
According to the Jain faith, the funeral ends with the cremation of the deceased body. After cremation, they sprinkle milk on that place. They collect the ashes but they do not immerse them in the water. Instead of it they dig the ground and bury the ashes in that pit.
