Death Rituals in Hinduism

Hindus generally observe many rites throughout their lives most are planned well ahead and plenty of guidance is available. However, in this age of rapid changes and urban living and the breakdown of the extended family most Hindus are ignorant of the customs associated with death. The last rites are extremely important and when death comes suddenly many people are totally unaware of or even know what has to be done. Can anybody provide some briefs regarding this topic?

What kind of a society is this? On this worse moment how can people think of performing rituals? This is insane.

Rituals are part of human life and its society. We cannot ignore them. And what`s the big deal in performing some rituals for the sake of the deceased?

In the Hindu religion, death is viewed as part of the natural cycle of life. The death of the biological body is not viewed as final because the soul is reincarnated and returns to earth in a new body. This is a cycle thought to repeat itself until the soul finally reaches Nirvana and is reflected in the Hindu death rituals traditionally performed by a male family member.

In today`s world Organ donation is acceptable to Hindus. There are no Hindu laws prohibiting organ or tissue donation.
