Caring for deceased is caring for Life

Caring for deceased is caring for Life

Newar community has elaborate rituals for life passages, popularly known as "Dasa Krama Vidhi- ten passage rites"; and there are rituals for deceased as well. One of the simplest rites is when somebody sees his/ her late father or mother in their dreams, the person offer some kind of food in the name of deceased to crow and dog. The traditional Hindu ritual would include crow, dog and cow more formally. There may be metaphysical reason behind it but practical approach seems to have a care for animal and bird as well.
