Ngaben

ngaben

\ebn/
  • Ngaben is a cremation or cremation ceremony in Bali, Indonesia. The Ngaben traditional ceremony is a ritual carried out to send the corpse to the next life. In this ceremony, the body is placed in a position like a sleeping person. The family that is left behind will also assume that the deceased person is sleeping. In this ceremony, there were no tears because they assumed that the body was simply not there for a while and underwent reincarnation or would find the final resting place at Moksha, a state in which the soul was free from reincarnation and the wheel of death. This cremation ceremony is also a symbol to purify the spirits of people who have died. (Noun)
