The way people dispose grief and commemorate their bereaved varies from place to another. However, some cultures take these practices to another level of macabre.

Tibetan Buddhist Celestial Burials

The Tibetan Buddhists have the weirdest practices of handling their dead. They practice ritual dissection which entails cutting up the body parts of the deceased and feeding animals, more especially the birds. They consider the body an empty vessel that deserves no better treatment. To date, more than 80 percent of Tibetan Buddhists choose this method for burial.

    So when I die, I guess being buried in a casket isn’t so bad… people in other places will eat me. YUCK!!!!!!

    First and third burial process seems to me quite horrific. Eating human flesh to respect the deceased!! Pretty shocking, I wish this type of incidents not occurring any where in the world at this age.
