It is always difficult to make funeral arrangements when a loved one passes. If you are looking for for a Hindu funeral home in Queens, Bergen Funeral Service Inc is a family owned and operated non-denominational funeral home that can perform Hindu funeral services. Our funeral directors are available 24 hours a day and can help ease you through any difficulties.
Since Hindus do not believe in resurrection, the body is rapidly cremated, usually with a day of passing. The ashes are collected and then scattered on a place that was important to the deceased after four days.
At a Hindu funeral, mourners wear casual white clothing. Prayers are said and hymns are sung. There will be an open casket, and the body will be covered with many flowers. It is important to send them prior to the ceremony. It is inappropriate to bring them to the funeral. The deceased’s life will be celebrated with a feast twelve or thirteen days after the funeral.
