A Kariyam, a Tamil Death Ceremony


A number of days—between 10 and 16, after a person has “Reached the Abode of Siva,” a special ceremony called a Kariyam is performed. Tamil tradition requires people to avoid saying that a person is dead. Instead, the person is said to have reached the world of Lord Siva, or to have reached the world of the dead or the ancestors.


Significance of the Kariyam


It is believed that the recently departed soul, the subtle body, known as the ativahika-sarira, goes to Preta Loka (the world of ghosts and spirits). The Kariyam marks the transition for the soul from Preta Loka to Pitru Loka, the Abode of the Ancestors. Pitru Loka is that place where our ancestors reside until they get a physical body (reincarnate). It said that three of our previous generations reside in Pitru Loka, waiting  to be born again. The Kariyam also marks the end of the time of mourning, and the most extreme restrictions for the family.


Annual death ceremony (Thithi)


The appropriate explanation for the “U” symbol is that this symbol could have simply stood for the “fortieth day ceremony” (or) thirteenth day ceremony. (Karumathi-Tamil/ Uttara Kriya-Sanskrit). Generally there are two important ceremonies  after death of a person in Hindu Culture. First is the third day ceremony (collecting bones after cremation) and second is the fortieth day ceremony, which marks the end of mourning period.  It is likely that this “U” symbol could have indicated the “fortieth day ceremony”(Karumathi/ Uttara Kriya) with out any mention about the exact day/date. (See the analysis given under the page human sacrifice)


One year after death, an annual death ceremony will be held , that is called as “Thithi” . Thithi literally means “Date”. The only date the ancient Hindus bothered about was this death ceremony. Even to today the same custom survives without much change. Still, it is the most important ceremony to be done by a son for his dead father, mother and ancestors. Ancient Hindus believed that and present day Hindu also still believe that if the annual ceremony is not held properly, the soul will not reach heaven and also will not get nourishment. Further the soul will be neglected in heaven or even worse scenario that the souls of ancestors will be sent to hell. Such is the bondage on living decedent that he had to conduct the annual death ceremony (Thithi) without that his Pithrus (Fathers and fore fathers) will be put into eternal punishments.
