SrI:
Dear Srivaishnavas,
My wife asked me these two queries: (I could not reply. Please help).

Why do we burn the dead bodies? (is it beacuse the body has become impure
without the jiVan in it). If there is a reson, why do we not perform the
same for the dead bodies of sanysaasis?

I am sure there should be valid reasons /pramANams.
Regards
Narayana Narayana
