Pretha Kainkarya Trust, started in 2001 is a charitable organization
involved in performing honourable last rites to orphaned dead. The name,
by His Holiness Sankaracharya of Kanchipuram, means service to orphaned
Most religions have prescribed
the manner of reverential disposal of the human
body after death. Sanathana Dharma or Hinduism enjoined code of conduct,
in such cases, is of the highest order and sanctity.
Attending to the disposal
of such human bodies is considered the highest form of Kainkarya(service).
The fruits accruing from such seva or service are considered as
having the same potency as performing the Ashwamedha Yagya.
