Fact About Cremation - The Process & Final Good Bye of your loved one
Cremation or burning the dead is not a new concept and was a part of the culture long before recession hit America to drain their pennies. The concept is as old as the Stone Age itself, but was not as common in rest of the world as it was in Ancient Greece and Rome.
For religions like Hinduism and Jainism, cremation is not only permitted but also preferred. The brakes on the practice of burning the dead were put with the rise of Christianity. The Emperor Constantine hit the final nail in the coffin by adopting Christianity as the Roman Empire’s official religion.
By the 5th century cremation lost its existence in the European continent.
The good part is from the past decade Christians in the west have again moved back to the cremation practice that once was the punishable offense.
With American cremation services making its way back in the west, there are a few myths that come along.
At crematoriums especially here in the west, we prefer electrical cremation over traditional eastern way of burning the dead on pyres in open ground. And since things happen in a closed room there is a lot that creates doubt.
People doubt the authenticity of cremains (Remains after cremation) since they do not get to see what goes in the cremation machine. But these boxes are named and the cremains are accordingly separated. One body is cremated at once to maintain authenticity and to respect the dead.
Family of the deceased is in advanced told to remove any metal piece that the body is wearing, but in case something remains it is carefully removed and handed over to the family.
Few people doubt of coffins being reused. But instead the reality is coffins too are burnt with the body and the plastic handles melt. Nothing, clearly nothing remains to be reused.
People believe the final rituals are to be done only by priests, but here anyone from the family can offer the last service thus, keeping the grievance very personal.
