Buddhist ritual known as the Tibetan Sky Burial is something we couldn't even remotely fathom in the western world, but it is part of normal life and death in parts of the Himalayas. By cutting the flesh of the deceased and offering them to the vultures, Tibetan Buddhists pay honor to those who had moved on and are now at a place without pain and suffering.

The Tibetan Sky Burial takes place on top of the mountains where there is little possibility to dig graves. As part of the ritual, once vultures and other birds of prey finished their job, the skeleton of the recently deceased person is picked up and shredded into pieces with an axe. Those are then ground in the flour to add extra taste to their baking or otherwise used in the kitchen, sometimes turned into tools or decorative jewelry to make full use of the dead body. Again, this may seem unimaginable in western cultures, but is part of sacred Buddhist ritual in Tibet.

Buddhists of Tibet believe in acts of generosity. The last service those who are still alive can do for those who have passed on is to offer their remains to other living creatures. This, in their teachings, helps sustain the life on Earth. Even from the Western point of view – there is hardly any more eco friendly way to dispose of dead bodies than the Sky Burial.

You give nature back, what nature gave, closing up the circle of life. And it’s reasonably inexpensive too. You don’t need no fancy casket in a hearse. That just feeds the pocket of funeral home owners and funeral business happens to be one of the most lucrative businesses in existence, counting up billions of dollars in revenue each year. Tibetan Sky Burial would teach them. We should start this practice here as well?
