Hindu Immersion of Cremated Ashes on Ocean Water in USA

South Shore Sea Burials on Long Island

South Shore Sea Burials can help you to create a memorable water ceremony for you and your family. Our boats captain has extensive experience in dealing with Hindu and Sikh traditions. The Boat operator is accustomed to replying quickly to any enquiry, we know how stressful it can be trying to arrange a ceremony when everyone’s schedules are so busy and relatives are often difficult to assemble.

Funeral Ceremony (Antyeshti Sanskar) in the United States in accordance with Hindu tradition

 

Some families wish to take the ashes to India, to immerse in the Holy Ganga. According to Hindu scriptures, flowing water from any source is considered sacred, no matter where we live. Scattering of ashes on the ocean water is lawfully allowed in USA. The eastern states including New York State follow the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) law.

 

The EPA has a general permit for those wishing to place their loved ones' crematory ashes or whole bodies out to sea. "Out to sea" is defined as placing the ashes equal to or greater than 3 nautical miles away from the shore. This is for the Atlantic Ocean only and does not include any inland waters or any other local streams or tributaries

South Shore Sea Burials can quickly arrange (24 - 48 hours) for a family service attended burial at sea, as we do for many Hindu families.

 

For family attended scatterings, advise your guest to dress comfortably with an extra sweater or jacket. Shoes with flat rubber soles or sneakers are best. Flowers, flower petals or anything that is biodegradable may be tossed into the ocean water after the scattering. You may bring music, food & beverages on board.
