Pind Daan or most commonly referred to as Asthi Visarjan is one post-cremation ritual which is performed by every Hindu in order to send the soul of their loved ones to the heavenly realm and attain their moksha. According to the ritual, people free the ashes left behind after the cremation of the mortal remains, which grants them moksha or the liberation from the karmic cycle of birth and rebirth. Ganga River is the holiest of all rivers where this procedure takes place. There are several places one could go and get this done with the help of professional Brahmin pundits.
