Garuda Purana: From a religious point of view, this last rite is as important as the other 16 rites.  Cremation is a form of separation of the soul from the body.  When the body burns, the soul of the dead is released by the fire.  The dead person's soul gains peace only through the last rites.

New Delhi, Table of Spirituality. Garuda Purana: In Hinduism there is a law of burning the body after death which is called cremation. But when a child or a monk dies in Hinduism, he is not burned but buried. Do you know the reason behind this?

This is why babies are not cremated.

According to the Garuda Purana, if a woman’s child dies in the womb or if a child under 2 years of age dies, then they are buried by burning. According to the Garuda Purana, the reason for this is that when a child is born, there is no illusion in him. Because the soul has no attachment to the body and in such a situation, if the child dies, the soul easily leaves the body.

Why is cremation necessary?

As a man grows up, he remains attached to the illusion and that soul present in the body begins to become attached to the body. In such a case, even after death, the soul tries to re-enter the body of the deceased unless the deceased is cremated. According to the Garuda Purana, the soul is released only after the last rites.

Why are holy men buried?

According to the Garuda Purana, apart from children, holy men and monks should also be buried instead of burned. Because such a person controls his senses due to severe penance. The saints gain victory over deceit and anger, etc. In such a situation, the soul present in that body has no attachment to the body. According to the beliefs, such people go directly to Vaikunth Dham after death.
