We can arrange the AsthiVisarjan Ceremony at Kashi without any hassles. Kashi situated on the banks of river Ganga is considered to be the best place for AsthiVisarjan.
Varanasi, also known as Kashi, is considered as city of Moksh and it is believed that whoever dies in Kashi get relieved from cycle of birth and death. This is the main reason that during the last stages of their life people come to Varanasi and remain in the city till their last breath. Also if a person died outside Kashi but his or her asthi were taken to Kashi and immersed in Ganga he or she will definitely attain salvation. The story behind this firm belief is as follows:
It is said that once there was a Brahmin, he was living with his wife far from Kashi and he never followed any of the Hindu ritual which is necessary for a Brahmin. Once he was wondering in the forest when a tiger attacked him and killed him. A vulture was watching all this and waiting for tiger to leave the place so that he can also eat the remaining flesh. After eating his food tiger went away leaving some uneaten flesh and bones at that place. Now vulture picked a piece of his flesh and flew in the sky. At the same time messengers of Yam Raj came there and took the soul of that Brahmin with them to the hell. There Yam Raj decided to punish him for not following any of the Hindu ritual in his life time and sentenced him. Meanwhile the same vulture was flying over the river Ganga in Kashi with the piece of flesh in his mouth and accidently some parts of that flesh fall in the river. Same time in the Yam lok, where execution of that Brahmin was going on, angels came from heaven and informed Yamraj that they came there to take that Brahmin with them to heaven as his mortal remains( asthi) has been immersed in Ganga and he has now attained Moksh. It is only because of asthi visarjan in Ganga at Kashi all the sins of that Brahmin faded away and his soul attained peace and salvation.
This is the reason why people want that after their death their cremated remains should be immersed in Ganga at Kashi and thousands of people take the cremated remains (asthi) of their family members to Kashi after their death and perform the procedure of asthi visarjan. It is believed that the river Ganga possesses the power to wash all kinds of mortal sins and give Moksh to the soul.
