Sir, While we in Hinduism believe in Panchaboothams i.e. Vayu, Varunan, Fire, Sky & Earch, the dead ones are cremated. But in other religions they are buried. What is the thathpariyam/principle governing the cremation? I can presume the importance of fire in our rituals, especialy, Homams, Yagams, etc What is the distinction of burial and cremation?
