The Balinese Cremation

It is no surprise that funeral traditions differ in each country, some more odd or spectacular than others. Let us look at Bali island cremation traditions this time.

In Bali they believe that with death the soul becomes free, and will find a new place in another body. Instead of end, death is therefore sort of like a new start. This does not mean the family does not have sadness about the event. The size of the ceremony depends on who is being buried but it is mostly done right after death.
