Prayer for the Dead
To help someone who has died, pray to their pure Soul using the tool of Pratikraman, or spiritual apology. This releases bondage of attachment or aversion with them.
Birth and death are two realities of life, and create different emotional reactions. While birth is celebrated, death is mourned. Losing a loved one is the hardest thing in life and when a loved one dies, friends and family spend time grieving and mourning their loss. However, such a reaction generates and sends negative inner vibrations to the departed Soul, which makes their departure painful.
So, what should you do when a loved one is dying? What should you do after the death of a loved one? It is often said that you must remain calm and stable. However, what type of understanding is needed? Is it possible to cope with the loss of a loved one, peacefully without feeling any suffering? Yes! Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan has given us a practical way to handle the situation. He says, “When you grieve, your grief reaches them [the dying person] and when you pray for him, your prayers too reach him and he will be at peace.” By applying this key, you will also be able to remain stable and feel peace within.
