    You should care about this issue, because every religion has a different death ritual. The religions we are going to be focusing on in this brochure are Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism. These three religions all have a very different death ritual. The types of things that can be learned from this brochure are the way that all three of the religions above do their death rituals.
    Buddhists death rituals vary from culture to culture. In the Indian Buddhists death rituals. they cut the body up and fed it to the vultures, because the human body is good for vultures to eat and their is no significance to the human body after it is dead. Although, at the time the person dies, they think it is helpful to encourages the dying person to have a peaceful mind and to be familiar with the transformations they are going to go through on their path of rebirth. Usually though, there aren't any strict death rituals because after you die your body isn't significant anymore. Usually, Buddhist monks will come to your house and chant Buddha's Dharma.
    Hindus think that humans go through reincarnation after death according to the person's karma. They do many different death rituals to the dead to make sure that the person's soul rests in peace. The rituals that are performed are done to depart the soul from the person that is dead. A lot of prayers, songs, and a lot of purifying rituals that include fire are done. All members of the family including the children participate in the rituals. For Hindus, they would rather their loved ones die in their homes, than in the hospital.
    Jewish people forbid suicide, because they value their lives. They believe that the person dying should not be left alone and they should be treated with respect and love. It is a mitzvah (a Jewish Law) that you be by the side of a someone that is dying. There are no on your deathbed confessions, and when they first die you say these words, "Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, the true Judge."
    The sources that I used show what the death rituals are in Hinduism, Buddhism, and in Judaism. They all have different ways to do a death ritual. The sources connect, because they all show the same type of information, but they are different because they have different information. The sources matter because they show all the information that you could use to better understand the death rituals for the three religions.
    Conclusion:
    All three religions that are talked about in this brochure have very different death rituals. They are not the same in any way. Some death rituals are very disgusting, and some are not.

    ...
    The next color is red, which means, of course, fire, life force and blood. Yet it's body part is the tongue. While fire and blood are pretty much self-explanatory, the fact that life force would represent the tongue could also relate to the three monkey's in terms of "speak no evil". If buddhists truly agree with the Islamic believe that truth is confession aloud, then if one does not speak evil, his/her life is not punished or it can related to Hinduism's karma. There's good karma and bad karma. If one does not speak evil, their life/soul will have good karma.
    Green represents balance and harmony, and it's body part is the head. This can easily be connected to Hinduism's high belief of meditation. In meditation, there are 7 chakras: root, sacral, navel, heart, throat, third eye and crown. Although the root is what starts the balance in chakra alliance, the crown is what puts all into harmony. And of course, in science, the brain is what drives the human body at all.
    Next is yellow, which represents the earth and the nose.
    Finally, black represents darkness and hatred, just as most religions see it. But why is it that the color black has no part on the human body? The only sensible explanation for such would be that Buddhism and Hinduism both have the same perspective that perfection is a necessary goal in life. In both Buddha's first sermon and the Hinduism's Upanishad, the two sacred texts both mention the guide to being perfect. The fact that Buddha sees no darkness or hatred upon the human body means that Buddhists wish their believers to reach for perfection. Is that the true gateway to liberation for Buddhists?

    What this passage is saying is that mormons are supposed to wait to have sex before marriage. Doing this makes them learn about each other and makes them get to know each other before any sexual activity. When you love someone it's hard not to get close to them because it's natural. This is why people who are dating are encouraged to keep their physical contact at a distance, so emotions won't get aroused. What this is also saying is that mormons are tempted to do the same, just like anyone else. What this shows is that, we all have these emotions and it's natural for us to want to respond to them but we should respond the right way.
    Hinduism
    {http://abish.byui.edu/library/libguides/francisl/Hinduism.jpg} Hinduism's
    Hinduism's
    moral traditions
    "Love is often used to describe a close attachment to another person. Sex means sexual intercourse between two people. Most religions have views on love and sex. Hindus believe that sex is a duty in marriage."
    What this is saying is that premarital sex, one of hinduism's traditions, is rooted in the belief of the stages of life. A celibate student's life, Brahma Charya, is one of the stages. He waited until he was married to have sex. This is considered the right, or the appropriate behavior for a man and a woman or who are dating. It is also saying who ever follows this will have good rewards. The second statement is basically saying that loves describes the attachment between two people. When you have sex with someone, not only is it a sexual intercourse but it makes two people become attached as one. This shows why sex is for marriage because when you get married, you are bonded as one with your mate.
    ...
    {http://abbotsfordbahai.org/resources/bahai_lotus_temple_delhi_1.jpg} "Briefly stated, the Bahá’í concept of sex is that it belongs strictly inside a marriage: The Bahá’í Faith recognizes the value of the sex impulse . . . The proper use of the sex instinct is the natural right of every individual, and it is precisely for this purpose that the institution of marriage has been established. (Shoghi Effendi, Lights of Guidance, p. 344)"
    This is saying that the Baha'i believes that sex only belongs to marriage. They know how special sex is between two people and that it is great value. It's natural for everyone to want it, it's in our nature. It is because of this reason why sex is made for marriage, it's a special bond between two people joined as one. They feel as though the proper use for sex is strictly when you get married. This shows that sex should be something valued and not passed around like candy. Some people find it hard to ignore when they're not married and the Baha'i knows that. They know it's not easy because it's a natural instinct, but they believe it's something to wait for and not rush in to. especially when you are not married.
    ...
    after marriage. These religions keep theses morals to keep people from hurting themselves. They want people to have a successful life and they feel in doing do, that you should wait until marriage to have sex. They all feel it's necessary to keep these morals in the stages of life. Overall religions
    Where the information on these religions came from?

    Conclusion:
    Both religions are common , you would never think of religions actually sharing something in common.
    Even though both are totally different they both have the after life in common. In both Judaism and Islam
    they both believe that there is a hell and a heaven and you have to be good or bad to get into them. What they
    also share is how one is cleansed. For example in my religion (chrisanity) we go to the morge get cleaned up , dressed
    and placed into a coffin and buried were as in Islam and Judaism you don't go to the morgue your family members
    clean up up and they wrap you in a sheet and is put into a box. I never knew that religions so different can actually
    have something in common. I bet you didn't either.

    the body. In Judaism one's eternal destination
    is also determined if you were good or bad in your life. There are three groups on judgment day
    the first group is inscribed for everlasting life, the second group will go to hell. the torah says "And many of them that sleep in the dust of the
    earth shall awake,some to everlasting life and some to reproaches and everlasting abhorrence" [Daniel 12:2] The third will go down to Gehinnom
    and squeal and rise again ,""And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined,
    and will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on My name and I will answer them" [Zechariah 13:9].Unlike Islam there place of peace and joy (heaven) is
    called the "Garden of eden". The Tanakh says that "In the world to come, there is nothing corporeal, and no material substance;
    there are only souls of the righteous without bodies --like the ministering angels... The righteous attain to a knowledge and
    realization of truth concerning God to which they had not attained while they were in the murky and lowly body.(Mishneh Torah, Repentance 8)
