The Hindus of Bali believe that cremation releases the soul so that it can continue it's journey through to reincarnation. Destruction of the host is primary for successive incarnations of that soul. This is a brief account of the ngaben ceremony held in Ubud, Bali in 1992. The photographs were taken by the author and complement the account.
