Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic: Last Rite Services
The World is facing unprecedented times due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outrage inflicted upon humanity.
As a result of this it is expected that there will be an unusually high number of unwarranted deaths, including that of Hindus.
Services to perform the Last Rites will be stretched and families will be under severe strain to contain their grief as well as to give their beloved departed family members the sacred Last Rites required according to Hindu Dharma.
Under such difficult times, Vishwa Hindu Parishad UK (World Council of Hindus) is offering its Last Rite Services to those who wish to avail themselves, with all humility and dignity. Acknowledging there are diverse Hindu beliefs, VHP offers a Minimum Common scriptural text that satisfies Hindu Funeral Rites.
The VHP UK (Yorkshire) has published a booklet (please insert the link ) called Hindu Funeral Rites in Conjunction with the Bradford Metropolitan Council Community Enterprise Section to enable anyone who wishes to avail themselves of this publication.
The service offered by VHP UK is in keeping with the Selfless Service offered as one of the pillars of Hindu Dharma, SEWA. It is an honorary service performed with Humility and Dignity
OM Shanti Shanti Shantih.
