Paying Tribute to the Dead

... At this time the bones would be deposited into the family grave box. Wild rituals. The site was filled with many coffins, with many visible bones. At the top of a long stair case was a dark cave housing many coffins, and still being used by the villages. It was a strange feeling in there, and the site of newer coffins really struck home the fact that this is a resting place for the dead. However, it did possess a strong natural beauty, ...

... be many years, but modern times it ranges from a few months to a year. A bit strange to others, the Torajan's have such a deep respect for their loved ones, they feel they are caring for them until they can give them a proper send off.

The land itself is possibly the most beautiful scenery I've ever seen. A lush display of jungle, mountains, terraced rice fields, and the stunning unique architecture of the traditional Torajan homes make every second in this ...

The Toraja also believe that possessions can be taken to the afterlife, so inside the coffin valuables will be placed, this lead ...

... it is a religious thing where the "word" is used to control the masses whatever that word might be and however it is interpreted for the benefit of some and this is just an in your face example of it. The next morning we were picked up and driven to the port and got on a boat that could probably seat 20, all to ourselves. It was a warm, beautiful ride to Bubbles resort which had its very own chalk white sandy beach, blue green water and amazing snorkelling right off of the ...

Bobbi, the buffalo!!! ( Mature content! Be aware!)

... no one cried, no one was sad, everything that happened was in her name and her honor...it was a big fest and the better the action the better the funeral is.  This ceremony is often held for several days, but the part I have experienced today, is called a Buffalo scarifies.  While Torajans treat birth with unrestrained joy, they are not afraid to face death, either, and the ceremony of scarifies is representing exactly that.  I knew more or less what to expect when ...
