Why to do Asthi Visarjan at Prayag?
The Ganga River, which flows through Prayag, is considered one of the holiest rivers in the world. Offering asthis in holy waters will aid the souls of the deceased in breaking free from the cycle of reincarnation and finding peace. Prayagraj’s Asthi Visarjan is a very important religious ceremony. Asthi is defined as a leftover bone or a collection of deceased people’s ashes. The remains of the deceased are collected after the final rites are conducted, and they are usually bound in a piece of fabric. Finally, the submerged ashes will flow like a river across calm water. “Asthi visarjan” refers to the complete immersion procedure.
Asthi Visarjan should always be done according to the instructions in our scriptures. If the Asthi Visarjan is not done according to the holy texts, the soul suffers.
Asthi Visarjan Time & Place
The Asthis are gathered on the day after cremation, or on the third, seventh, or ninth day, and submerged in running water before the tenth day. The third day after cremation procedures is the best time to gather asthi. If asthi is to be immersed after the 10th day, it should be done only after the tirtha-shraddha ceremony has been completed.
