Pashupatinath temple

We are visiting the temple and river where the Nepalese people are cremating their loved ones.
For us this is very different since, at least in Sweden, death is not a natural part of life.
We seldom talk about death and because of that the sorrow is even worse.
Most people don't even believe in a life after this and because of that the death is very definitive.
When someone dies we have a ceremony in church and then the body is either cremated in a special house with no one present or buried in the graveyard.Leya and I are watching how family and friends are saying their good byes and the temple people are preparing the old woman.At this temple they are not cremating pregnant women or children below the age of five.
Everything is handled very dignifying and even we find the cremation like a part of life.
