Scattering Ashes in India

Asthi-visarjan is the final rites for the disposal of Antyesti. According to the Hindu religion, the ashes and remains of the deceased are collected in an earthen pot and consigned to the holy river. It is commonly believed that immersion of the ashes in the river Ganga is considered most sacred.

According to the Hindu Religion Ash immersion of their loved ones in the holy Ganges remains sacrosanct. Many families take the ashes back to India to perform this final ritual while others who cannot make the journey can use the Hindu Pratha Service for ash immersion in Absentia performed at Haridwar .

Hindupratha will perform the rituals/ ash scattering in absentia and send back proof to the family. For further information or clarification:
