    This is rebirth. The dead were to be ritually mourned through public ceremony, sacrifice, and libations, or else they might return to haunt their families. Edited by Hiroshi Obayashi, — Ghosh, Shyam.

    Translated by Antonio Rigopoulos. According to the Bhagavad-Gita, after death, human soul is bound to reincarnate. You can carry out your tasks grumbling and grouching, or you can do it with a smile. Magical banishment of the dead is present in many of the world's burial customs. Of course, we all do.

    Thus rebirth and liberation, represented by water and fire, are the twin fates that await the Hindu dead. To facilitate a good death, a Brahmin priest may help the dying person to stay focused on God, perhaps by chanting the name of Ram or a healing mantra. This realisation is Nirvana. The Bhagavad-Gita does not illustrate the concept of hell or heaven, rather emphasizes on reincarnation and karma. Do you want your daughter to remember that last night you sent her to bed without any dinner, and then you didn't go in to tuck her in and give her a kiss?
