Ngaben is a cremation or cremation of Hindus in Bali, Indonesia. Ngaben event is a ritual performed to send the bodies to the next life. Bodies should be put asleep, and the families left behind will always think so (sleep). No tears, because the corpses are temporarily absent and will undergo final reinkarnasa or find relaxation at the Moksha (freedom from the wheel of death and reincarnation).

Appropriate day for this event is always discussed with people who understand. On this day, the body's corpse is placed in a coffin, dead. Peti-die is placed inside the sarcophagus that resembles the ox or the temple-shaped container made ​​of wood and paper. Form of an ox or a monastery brought to the cremation through a procession. The procession is not running on a straight road. This is to confuse evil spirits and keep him away from the corpse.

The highlight is the burning keluruhan Ngaben structure (Ox or temple made ​​of wood and paper), along with the corpses. The fire needed to liberate the spirit from the body and ease of reincarnation.

Ngaben not always done with segaera. For members of high caste, it is reasonable to perform this ritual within 3 days. But for members of lower castes, the bodies first buried and then, usually in a group event for a village, cremated.
