Hindu Death Rituals

Apara Kriya. Ceremonies for death are conducted till the 12 Day, the thirteenth being Purification,not only for the satisfaction of the Annamaya Kosa, but for the other Kosas,,Prana, Vignana,Manas and Ananda, the last one reminding the Eternal Nature of the Self. Mantras recited during these twelve days ensure this. After these ceremonies the Subtle body, Sukshama, enters the Pithru loka, sans the Physical body.
