Re: Burning of dead bodies

Dear Sri Sudarsanan,

  Thanks for providing rare & good information. I have a doubt from 
the following few lines you had quoted.

--------you wrote----------
The person, whose body was burnt by "tulasikaThaka agni" will be 
relieved of all the sins he had committed. Even if he had committed 
thousands of sins he will attain moksha.

1. What is tulasikaThaka agni?

2. My understanding is that when a person dies, the soul will 
immediately take another body. The body is burnt after few hours of 
death. How is it possible for "tulasikaThaka agni" to liberate the 
soul from all sins and attain moksham.

3. Does the soul is still inside the dead body until the body is 
burnt?. Does it mean that based on the type of agni, the soul will 
either go to moksham(using tulasikaThaka agni) or take another body? 

I request the members of the list to clarify my doubts.
