    [Yes the Dharmic Religions of the East] In many eastern religions the body is simply a vessel for the soul. One disposes of the vessel after death so the soul can move on. Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism mandate cremation with exceptions (holy men and children).

    There are many more religions where cremation is accepted such as those listed in the sites below: “Ásatrú, Buddhism, Christianity (containing Church of Ireland, Church in Wales, United Church of Canada, Lutheranism, Methodism, Moravian Church, Salvation Army, Scottish Episcopal Church), Christian Science, Church of Scientology, Hinduism (mandatory except for sanyasis, eunuchs and children under five), Jainism, Seventh-day Adventist Church, Sikhs, Society of Friends (Quakers), and Unitarian Universalism.”
