July 7 2013 Baha'i Newsletter


One of our neighbors is dying, and we have been talking about preparations, both physical and emotional. Not easy in a culture that doesn't want to even think about it, let alone plan ahead! So, we have talked about the whole death and dying thing, sharing religious teachings we have grown up with, as well as my experience as the go to estate planner/executrix for my family. (That is what happens when you outlive most of your relatives!)

I've done a few articles on the purpose of life and death and immortality according to the Bahá'í Faith,

- Life After Death: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art180008.asp
- The Bahá'í Concept of Heaven: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art180091.asp
- Fate and Predesitination: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art180563.asp

but none about the actual funeral ceremony. That is what this week's article is about:

Bahá'í Burial Rites
Burial requirements for Bahá'ís are few and simple, essentially treating the physical body with great respect.

Please visit bahai.bellaonline.com for more about the Baha'i Faith and what it's like to live a Bahá'í life -- at least, what it's like for me...
