Antyesti Samskara — The last rites (Vedic funeral rites)

Dear Vaisnavas,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Considering that almost daily we are reading about the passing of some exalted Vaisnavas and that this trend will only continue, I thought it might be wise to publish the Antyesti Samskara — the Vedic funeral rights — as transmitted by Srila Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, so that devotees would know what to do in such inevitable circumstances.

Attached is a copy of Gopala Bhatta Gosvami’s directions on how to perform Antyesti Samskara in PDF format.
