Humane funerals according to Martinus
In his book Bisættelse (working title: On Funerals), which is not yet available in English, Martinus describes the development of a new humane funeral culture based on the principle of reincarnation and an expanded understanding of neighbourly love that also embraces the microlife in one’s abandoned body. According to Martinus’s analyses, this has implications for how the body should ideally be treated when one dies.
Martinus saw the body as a microcosmos filled with microscopic forms of animal life. He believed that this microlife – like all other forms of life – has its own life paths that should ideally be lived to their end. A humane funeral supports this aim by, among other things, avoiding cremation.
