I was reading bengali ramayan by parashuram and came accross this .
this says that it is the customary for rakshasas to get buried after death.
अवटे च अपि माम् राम निक्षिप्य कुशली व्रज | रक्षसाम् गत सत्त्वानाम् एष धर्मः सनातनः || ३-४-२२ अवटे ये निधीयन्ते तेषाम् लोकाः सनातनाः |
Then i checked the sanskrit version it also says the same .
My question is why is maharshi valmiki saying so ? What is happening to all those who are getting buried after death? Is it happening because they were rakshasas and their time is ending?
And since paganism is taking pace all over the world and they are burning their dead ,does that mean that reign of rakshasas is ending over the world.
Please make an informed comment .
