Kashi, also known as Varanasi, Varanasi is the holiest city and also oldest city in the world according to our vedic scriptures. These sacred writings are 3500 years ancient and are part of our sanatana dharma. After death performing final rituals at Varanasi is considered as more significant, and the life or soul will be revolving around the burning human remains and prayer. Everyday cremations and pind daan in kashi happen on the banks of the Ganges river. In both the Hindu afterlife, moksha is the end of the cycle of rebirth. To achieve moksha is to end suffering. It’s freedom from death.
It’s the greatest honor to be performing cremation and shradh puja in kashi/Varanasi. In fact, some people spend their entire life savings on cremation and pitru paksha. Since the city is so important to Lord Shiva, Hindus believe they’ll achieve moksha if they do cremation at Kashi/Varanasi. Even for those people who died due to a bad death like suicide or illness those solus also have chance to attain moksha—if they die in Varanasi.
There is a detailed illustration of Kashi in Skanda purana. Lord Skanda has narrated Skanda purana, also known as Kartikegryan to Rishi Agastya. In Skanda purana there are 100 adhyayas, 11000 and more slokas representing the geography of different temples, story of their architecture, introduction to various gods and goddesses of the temples, antiquity of the city and its cultural and traditional structure.
There is an ancient relation between Ganga, Kashi and Lord Shiva. There are several stories about Ganga Matha, the most meaningful one about Ganga’s pre-eminence to earth. According to puranas , Ganga river used to flow in the heavens. It was brought to earth by the atonement of a sage named Bhagirathi. He was the king of Kosala. He wanted to rescue his 60 thousand antecedents who were stuck in patala Loka.
According to Hindu tradition and belief, it is considered as more effective to perform last rites at Varanasi we have particular package for Varanasi rituals such as shradha pandit for Pitrukaryas, tarpanam for the deceased forefather pitru paksha rituals in the family with the best purohit services in Varanasi, so that the departed souls attain moksha.
