According to the Vedas or Gita does the Antim sanskar last 3 days, 13 days or one day? Is there any written instructions in any veda or the Gita?

  • Although this link does not Answer exact days, but its interesting reading about 16-Sanskar commonly practised as per Hinduism: hinduism.stackexchange.com/questions/410/… – AADHinduism May 14 '16 at 9:13
  • The instructions are in Garuda Purana... – Tejaswee May 14 '16 at 10:01
  • Are you talking about period of impurity or mourning after death in family(also known as ashoucha), or the period of main cremation rite and tarpan process? – Yogi May 14 '16 at 12:10

    Cremation/burial must happen asap. Other "poojas" depend on the varna/caste. – user1195 Oct 5 '16 at 4:16
  • Vedas do not mention it. Puranas or smritis have such rules. Vedas tag is not relevant. – Sarvabhouma Jul 24 '17 at 5:38
