यतिनाम्मरणानन्तरं दशाहपर्यन्तं कृत्यवर्णनं नामैकविंशोऽध्यायः
Tasks upto ten days after the death of an ascetic – Chapter 21
वामदेव उवाच |
Vamadeva said (to Kartikeya) as a prelude to his question
ये मुक्ता यतयस्तेषां दाहकर्म न विद्यते |
मृते शरीरे खननं तद्देहस्य श्रुतं मया || 1 ||
There is no burning ceremony (cremation) of those who are liberated ascetics. I have heard that on the dead body, burial of the body (is performed).
